as indicated in the help
"To use this feature, you must register for a free account at www.geonames.org and Provide the username."
So, I created an account
and in the field I put the "username" created to geonames when I want to enter an unknown place, I see no difference with before.
In this field, I tried to:
"www.geonames.org/activate/aaaaaaa/username/" giving by geonames
no change.
what to put in this field, can we have an example?
and also an example of the entry with this option

Thank you.

Hi,

Did you enable Web Service usage?

forum.geonames.org/gforum/posts/list/19675.page

the accounts were orginally used for editing the wiki interface, for the use of the webservice you have to activate the ws on the account page. This means there are two steps:

1) activate account (verify email)
2) enable for web service usage
