Mattia Capozzi (WMDE) (talkcontribs)

Hi everyone, Mattia here, UX Designer from Wikimedia Deutschland. I created my Phabricator account a while ago for work related topics, but unfortunately chosen the wrong username and now having troubles connecting my professional email address from WMDE to a proper account with the format FirstName_LastName_(WMDE).

Is there a way you could please delete my Phabricator account (The username is "maca")?

Alternatively, could anybody help with changing the username to Mattia_Capozzi_WMDE?

Thanks!

Hi @AKlapper (WMF) - mind if I jump on this topic as I have a similar request? I'm also a UX designer at WMDE, who also didn't use the most ideal name when I initially signed up for phabricator. Would you mind adding WMDE to the end of my user name? Thanks!

AKlapper (WMF) (talkcontribs)

Elisha Cohen (WMDE): Hi, sure. Just to check, your Phab username should become "Elisha_Cohen_WMDE"?

Elisha Cohen (WMDE) (talkcontribs)

Thanks! I think "ECohen (WMDE)" would be ideal, sorry for not being clear. Appreciate the help

@AKlapper (WMF) Ah sorry didn't realize that! Makes sense now. "ECohen_WMDE" would be great then. Sorry about the back and forth and thanks for you help!

Is it possible to reset/disable 2FA? I lost my TOTP app. I probably only have SHA512 committed ID as means of authentication.

Thanks

I've already read that (and a lot of other discussions). It's just that 1). I practically can't do anything at Phab, everything now is behind login, which unfortunately also behind 2FA. and 2). I'm not sure who, or how, I can contact the admins for the second method, nor that I'm eligible for it (no one know me for sure).

Can I contact you through e-mail?

AKlapper (WMF) (talkcontribs)

@ArdWar: Yes, see my profile page.

@AKlapper (WMF) Hi, I've mailed you with my info (ca. 3 days ago, sorry I didn't notify you immediately).

Registering troubles

Sarang (talkcontribs)

Hi everybody, '''I need help'''!


A week ago I tried to register. When I was asked to give my email address, the input field had been prefilled - as I thought from my "preferences" which bear my (correct) mail address.

But somehow it had been mutilated, instead of ...#x40;gmail.com it became ...#x40;gmal.com which I saw I didn't get the verification mail.


Now my registration process in in an inbetween-state: I '''cannot go back''' to correct the wrong address, and of course I cannot go further. I can only tick the box "Send Another Emai;" - which is of no use; and there is no other exit from that page, Every attempt leads me again to that page.

I need help that ''cancels'' that half process where I am stucking, for enabling me to a new start. -- sarang사랑 04:09, 28 July 2020 (UTC)

@Sarang I have deleted that unused user account; feel free to re-register.

Hi, I wanted to login to Phabricator with my MediaWiki account, and I had to confirm by e-mail. But the message was sent to my old e-mail address, to which I have no longer access, due to a technical problem, though I changer since a long time my e-mail address for all Wikimedia projects. And to confirm my Phabricator account I must confirm by e-mail and I can't change the address on Phabricator, so what can I do ?

AKlapper (WMF) (talkcontribs)
Golmore (talkcontribs)

Thanks, I'll try.

No verification email received for account creation

Celestina007 (talkcontribs)

Phabricator requires that I verify my email before signing the confidentiality form before proceeding any further but the problem is that the verification email never reaches my email inbox. I have checked my spam folder, inbox, everything but the verification email never comes despite clicking the “resend email” over a dozen times. Please I need you all to assist me on this. I welcome any advice as I am getting mentally fatigued about this. Please you all should help a sister out. If deleting my current Phabricator account so I can re-register would solve the problem I really do not mind. Thank you all my dear colleagues

AKlapper (WMF) (talkcontribs)

@Celestina007 I have deleted the Phabricator account "Celestina007". Feel free to re-register with a working email address - thanks!

Celestina007 (talkcontribs)

Thanks a million. Funny thing is, I use the email address globally & it works just fine for all other things. Do you think I should change my email entirely or just re-try the entire process with the same email hoping that this time it works?

Celestina007 (talkcontribs)

All is well now thanks to you

Issue tracker on Phabricator?

Sebkur (talkcontribs)

So I forked an existing tool on toolforge, the repository has been created on Phabricator as was suggested in the process if I remember correctly. Here's my repository: https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/source/tool-commonsapi/ Now I was wondering, is there such a thing as an issue tracker connected to the repository that I can point users to for submitting bug reports, feature requests or anything else? Thanks!

Sebkur (talkcontribs)

I mean essentially I would like to mention something at the bottom of the tool page https://commonsapi.toolforge.org/ as I have done now (Bugs and feature requests can be submitted as tickets on Phabricator.) However there's nothing a user can do on that repository page I think

I entered the wrong email, please delete my Phabricator account so I can enter my correct email.

User456541 (talkcontribs)

My phabricator username is the same as Wikimedia global.

AKlapper (WMF) (talkcontribs)

Done; please re-register. Thanks!
