Cannot verify wrong email on Phabricator

Tera458 (talkcontribs)

Hi, I needed to create an Phabricator account to install an extension on a miraheze wiki, but I entered my email adress incorrectly and now I'm stuck and can only send verification email to the wrong adress, how can I reset this? My username on miraheze and mediawiki is Tera458

AKlapper (WMF) (talkcontribs)

What is the exact name of the account in Wikimedia Phabricator that this is about?

Tera458 (talkcontribs)

Its Tera458 too, sorry for not adding that detail earlier

AKlapper (WMF) (talkcontribs)

Well I was just able to recreate one and enter the right email adress just now somehow! Thanks for your assistance

Task not editable unless user is a member of Trusted-Contributors, but I'm not sure why

A colleague was unable to edit this, and asked me to add them to Trusted-Contributors so they could. I did, and that resolved their issue, but I can't find why. I am unable to see if this task's Editable By field is limited to members of Trusted-Contributors, but I assume that is why. Can anyone confirm?

Jdforrester (WMF) (talkcontribs)

Possibly this is something to do with the Spike task type? I can't find the Phab config settings for the task types to double-check.

AKlapper (WMF) (talkcontribs)

Form 60 (for editing Spike tasks) has a Can Edit Policy: Task authors, subscribers, members of Trusted-Contributors and WMF-NDA, admins. I do not know why it was created like that, maybe @MModell (WMF) knows more.

The default edit policy is overridden by the form settings.

MModell (WMF) (talkcontribs)

I changed the defaults for that form to all users.

Hi, I would like to change my account name to Stang so that it can be consistent with my MediaWiki account. The URL is this. Thanks!

Hi, renamed!

How do Feature requests and Wikipedia Proposals interlink

Hi,

Do you have to get consensus from Wikipedia Community portal proposals before creating a Feature request?

And where do I find the approval flow for feature requests?

thank

AKlapper (WMF) (talkcontribs)

Hi, I don't know what "Wikipedia Community portal proposals" are - could you please provide a link? If you refer to configuration changes to Wikimedia websites, please see https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Requesting_wiki_configuration_changes (but not sure that is what you're asking for). I don't know what you mean by "approval flow"; what exactly needs approval and why? Could you be a bit more specific, maybe? :) Thanks a lot!

Wakelamp (talkcontribs)
AKlapper (WMF) (talkcontribs)

What is a "feature request" specifically? There is How_to_report_a_bug which ocvers feature requests.

Wakelamp (talkcontribs)

thank-you. I have found out how it works

Issue with logging in to my Phabricator account due to authenticator code malfunction

Reset 2FA after verifying via video call

UOzurumba (WMF) (talkcontribs)

Please, I need help with logging in to my phabricator account. My account has Multi-Factor / 2FA issue; when I try to login into my Phabricator account, my google authenticator does not work, it displaces "Invalid". I have reset the time clock on the google authenticator app and on my devices still the issue has persisted. I have tried the option "Trouble logging in? Send a login link to your email address", and it does not send any email to my account. I don't know what to do next.

This issues started after I changed my phone and imported the google authenticator account and app to my new phone. My phab account is linked to this Wiki account. Is it possible to manually verify my account and reset it?

Thanks for your help.

AKlapper (WMF) (talkcontribs)

@UOzurumba (WMF)Ah, I wasn't aware that you changed phones; maybe that's an influencing factor here. Probably easiest in this case would be removing 2FA for your Phab account so you could set it up again. Feel free to set up a quick video call with me to allow verifying your request. I'm in UTC+2. :)

Could someone archive the Jupyter-Hub project? I don't have the rights. I've updated the description to point to the other tags that should be used instead.

DannyS712 (talkcontribs)

I suggest making the request on phab for easier tracking

AKlapper (WMF) (talkcontribs)

Archived now; for future references this best goes under #Project-Admins in Phabricator itself.

Thumbor is on Stretch, there's a task to update to Buster.

JoKalliauer (talkcontribs)
AKlapper (WMF) (talkcontribs)

This does not sound like a question about Phabricator itself, but about Thumbor?

AntiCompositeNumber (talkcontribs)

No, Thumbor is on Debian Stretch (currently oldstable). I don't know of an authoritative public list of what uses what version, though I can say that there shouldn't be anything running Jessie anywhere. https://apt-browser.toolforge.org/ is broken down by OS target, which can give an indication for services using a Debian package like Thumbor.

Herald: How to see what tags have been most impacted by a rule?

MBinder (WMF) (talkcontribs)
AKlapper (WMF) (talkcontribs)

Hmm, I don't think the database saves which exact condition of a single Herald rule triggered the action, but I'd need to dig more into the DB scheme to know for sure. According to SELECT COUNT(*) FROM herald_ruleapplied WHERE ruleID = 26; that rule has been triggered 3278 times so far.

MBinder (WMF) (talkcontribs)

Wow! Thanks for the info. Would be interested to know more, if possible and time allowing. :)
