Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

I'm really confused about how to get a token. The OAuth page in the wiki has some links that seem to imply they will let me request a token but they all give error pages. Is it just that those pages are temporarily broken? Or is there some other way that is supposed to happen?

The urls on the wiki page is the urls for the service. You need to pass correct arguments to those urls to get a token. Normaly you provide those urls to the oAuth library you are using and make it to the rest.

You can have a look at the documentation at oAuth.net for information about how the oAuth protocol works.

Okay that makes sense, the implication to me reading the docs was that there was something else coming from OSM.
