Hello, it works exactly like that, you followed correctly the process (the distinct projects extension/site-request is a detail).
Just a note: we don't usually assign these bugs to other people: the person who takes care of it assign theirself.
Yes Sir! without it will be of no worth because we are yet a small wiki and most of the people come here from another wikis. Very few people directly create acconts here.
Thus, I need it working for people from another wikis too. thanks!
