Problems logging in
To log in on Wikia, you must have cookies enabled on your browser. If you appear to be able to log in, but appear logged out immediately thereafter, it is very likely a cookie problem. If you are certain that cookies are enabled, make sure you have not inadvertently listed www.wikia.com on a list of sites to never allow cookies for. You can check this in the privacy options of any browser you might be using. Also make sure that your computer's date and time are set correctly. If they are not, cookies may expire before they are supposed to.
The issue may also be a cache problem. You can try bypassing your cache to see if that corrects the issue.
Still not working?
If you are still not able to log in, please contact Wikia, where the Community Team will be able to help restore access to your account. Please make sure you are sending your message from the same e-mail address connected with your account, otherwise we cannot verify that the account belongs to you.
