About this board
It always has been. The potential for abuse is very high, and "normal" use slows down the system for every other user, so needs to be limited.
What are story points?
See Team Practices Group/Glossary#Story points and note the caution in Phabricator/February 2016 upgrade#What will our norms be around Story Points on all tasks? about trying to understand them outwith the context of their project.
Feel free to do so. :) See https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Phabricator/Help#Creating_your_account
Request for name change in Phabricator
Hello, I request my Phabricator account from Wiki-1776 to Hispano76
Hi, https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/p/Wiki-1776/ is linked to https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/User:Wiki-1776 but this request comes from https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/User:Hispano76 so how to verify? :)
adding a comment without subscribing to a task
Is it possible? I wont be helpful other than reporting my observation, so I dont want to subscribe each time I leave my first comment on a task.
Hi, I need to sign the new confidentiality agreements in Phabricator and I've lost my phone.
My account name is "Fan", and the user committed identity on my user page is [REDACTED].
Your 2FA is now removed. I trust you have updated your committed identity phrase to something new now. Thank you for your patience.
I have emailed the OTRS volunteers to confirm the validity of this request, just to be safe (since you are an OTRS volunteer and your committed identity secret phrase is now public). I have also tracked this in Phabricator itself: https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T215861
Is it allowed to talk non-wikipedia development topic in Phabricator?
We (Moegirlpedia) would like to use Phabricator to track our MediaWiki development progress. But not all the needs related to Mediawiki/Wikipeida.
Jira is a good choice for software development too, but it's private oriented design and price are problem.
Can we use Phabricator to track non-Wikipedia development project?
The Wikimedia instance of Phabricator is meant for any Wikimedia-related activity so I'm afraid this is out of scope. Though I am curious what "your MW development process" implies - would that be relevant to upstream?
Maybe I misunderstood - if this is not about tracking all your tasks in a dedicated project but about tagging some tasks of interest for you, then this is totally fine. Is this the same as phab:T215688 ?
Unused Phab account deleted, so the user can re-register with a correct email address
Hi. I accidentally entered a wrong email address when I create my account in Phabricator, so I cannot verify it. What can I do to change the email? The username is "Pedrohoneto".
I deleted the unused Phabricator account Pedrohoneto. Please feel free to re-register.
I can'l login into Phabricator with my user name Alex_brollo, login form replaces underscore with a space then it complains for an incorrect user name (of course....). When I try to login by mediawiki account, login form complaints about tha fact that an user exists using the same email (of course...).
How can I login?
Login form for LDAP does not replace underscore with a space here (Firefox 64).
After which exact last steps does this happen? With which exact browser? Does that also happen with another browser?
I'm using Maxthor, a light browse running in an old PC with Windows XP (the modern died suddenly, I'm waiting for its resuscitation..); I'll try with Chrome or Firefox, but both aren't happy to run under XP. Let's try.....
Try with Chrome failed, I asked for a new password, no success.... Strangely, in cnfirmation mail my user name is defined as "Alex brollo", while it is "Alex_brollo". Many years ago, when I registered my MediaWiki user name (Alex brollo), I didn't know that a space into an username is a bad idea....
(PS: obviously BrolloBot is another my username for my bot account, I tried to login with it too with no success).
"asked for a new password" where and how exactly? What does "no success" mean? No email received, or email received and password entered (on which website) but some error (which one?) on Phabricator?
Please be clear and exact. Thanks!
New try using Firefox, after central login with my main user name Alex brollo.
As I click on the left button "Login or Register Mediawiki", at https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/auth/start/?next=%2FT209939, an OAuth popup opens; I click on "Allow" button; a page "Create new account" opens, user name "Alex_brollo", when I try to fill required fields (email) and click "Register" the page tells that both user name and email are duplicated.
Then I tried to ask a new password for LDAP user Alex_brollo and I got a mail from Wikitech, with a temporary password for user "Alex brollo" (no underscore!):
"The following user account is associated with this email address:
Username: Alex brollo
Temporary password: " (follows a password)
I tried LDAP login with that username (both with space and with underscore) and the new password: both username and password are "Invalid".
I'm sure that previusly I contrbuted to Phabricator by mediawiki login with no problem; presently I'm so confused (and frustrated!) that I can't remember if I have, or I have not, a LDAP account.
You cannot have been active in Phabricator by mediawiki login before because you have not attached your MediaWiki user account to your Phabricator account - see https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/p/Alex_brollo/. So your only option is LDAP/wikitech login.
As you received a temporary password, did you log in on wikitech.wikimedia.org with that temporary password to set a non-temporary password before trying that password on Phabricator?
Ok. I successfully log in into wikitech.wikimedia.org with temporary password, then I set a new password, ok, then I successfully log in into Phabricator using the new password. Thanks for your time and for your help.
My Wikipedia username, and many other Wikipedia users' usernames, also contain a space which sometimes morphs into an underline.
I find the default font size of almost all Wikipedia portals too small on my 22" Full HD monitor with Firefox 63 desktop browser. I know that font size is a personal preference, but there is *no option to set the preferred font size* (with the help of cookies) either. A quick search for 'font size' on Phabricator dumps a list, but I'm not sure which entry I should be following. Could you please help me find *the* bug report regarding my concern (if one exists)?
Hi, once the font size has been changed in the web browser, most modern browsers (including Firefox 63) remember the font size per website the next time you visit that website. Hence I personally don't see any reason for introducing such a preference anymore.
