Cannot create account on Speedsolving Wiki due to verification question.

I have a problem. I want to make an account on Speedsolving wiki but the verification question is:

"What is the name of the person who created the 4x4 speedsolving method used by the fastest solvers in the world? (First and Last Name)"

I tried every name, I even asked others who that person is. However, none of the names worked. Is this an question that's not up to date anymore? Wiki told me to contact administrators if there's something that prevents me from making contributions but guess what? To contact them, I have to create an account! Is it like telling "Your keyboard is broken. Press F7 to continue!".

I don't remember anymore. But would a question not related to names be more appropriate?

But I see things like Yau, Redux and Sandwich.

Thanks. I would have never figured it out.
Due to spam, it has to require a somewhat difficult question but also one that can be looked up to a cuber who is active in the community.

I tried it and it worked for me too, but I misspelled it once as "Robert Yao". Thanks!
This can also be looked up. Now that the answer is here, others who have trouble and find the answer. Eventually I want to enable easier editing of the wiki without barriers like this.
