As someone who only maintained a Wiki account to customize the Look and feel
of the wiki, I did wonder where my account had gone.

It would be nice if there was a comment to this effect on the Login /
<strike>Registration</strike> page of the Wiki.

Also another possible solution (if it's possible) would be to allow general
creation of read-only accounts and then have a manual / moderated process
for upgrading accounts to read-write.
