Phabricator rename request

Jeroen N (talkcontribs)

Can my Phabricator username be changed from Woodcutterty to Jeroen N to align with my Wikimedia SUL? There seems to be no way to create a new account. Thank you in advance!

AKlapper (WMF) (talkcontribs)
Jeroen N (talkcontribs)

Sure, that's no problem at all. Thanks!

Permission to start a project

Summary by AKlapper (WMF)

Handled in phab:T195051

Sparrow (麻雀) (talkcontribs)

Hi everyone,

I would like to try to use phabricator for collarboration for a Project that I'm planning. Could you please give me the permission to start a Project or start a Group so that I can pin the two other People that are working on the Project there and we can distribute Tasks. I've been following how the Team of Wiki Loves Love uses phabricator and I found it very useful and would like to try it myself.

My username on phabricator is Sparrow. As I wasn't allowed to use Chinese symbols when choosing the user Name it's not exactly the same as on here.

Best

Hello Andre, I did that and pinned you in the filed task (don't know if that was correct - if someone else in the Project admins creates the page that would be fine, too).

Best

Wrong email address blocks the registration

Summary by AKlapper (WMF)

Unused Phab user deleted so the user can re-register

Floatingpurr (talkcontribs)

I'm so sorry but when I tried to register to Phabricator with my wikimedia account I entered a wrong email address (I had tried to use the one I have in wikimedia but I have been told that it already exists).

Now I cannot confirm the account via email, even revoking and re-asking Phabricator grants in my WikiMedia panel. I'm stuck. Please, can you delete my Phabricator wrong account?

Sorry for the inconvenience :(

AKlapper (WMF) (talkcontribs)

No problem! I have deleted the account. Feel free to re-register.

Floatingpurr (talkcontribs)

Great! Thank you very much! But now If I enter the email address of my MediaWiki account I get the error "Another user already has that email". Yes, it's me : )

Cannot I use the same address?

AKlapper (WMF) (talkcontribs)

Hmm, it cannot be you because the "Floatingpurr" user account on Phabricator was deleted.

Are you sure that you have not registered an account on Phabricator before with some different username? :-/

Floatingpurr (talkcontribs)

Just checked old email massages. Yes, I did! So how can I manage? Can you delete the old registration with that email?

Sorry once again

AKlapper (WMF) (talkcontribs)

I do not know which "old" Phabricator user name is connected to that email address... :)

Floatingpurr (talkcontribs)

Oh, sure! It is the same name in the email address before the '@'

Thanks : )

AKlapper (WMF) (talkcontribs)

I do not know what your email address is, sorry :)

Floatingpurr (talkcontribs)

No problem. It should be superciccio14 :)

Floatingpurr (talkcontribs)

That's the old username, do you need the complete email address?

logon now forces create new

Summary by AKlapper (WMF)

User registered in Phab only with their LDAP account so they could not log in or register via their wiki/SUL account as the email address was already taken by the LDAP account. User should log into Phab via their LDAP account and can add their wiki/SUL account under "Settings > External Accounts".

Slowking4 (talkcontribs)

when i go to login https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/login/?next= it goes to OAuth which deadends at to register account, no option to login, and bounces as "Duplicate

  • Another user already has that username.
  • Another user already has that email."

thanks, it would be nice to provide link, rather than the unhelpful cul-de-sac. cheers

Atsirlin (talkcontribs)

When I click on the Mediawiki account button, the system asks me to provide permission to 'phabricator-production'. Then, back at Phabricator, it lists my Mediawiki account as an 'external account', offers me to create some other account, and says that my username and e-mail are already in use. This is not surprising, because I had used Phabricator under my normal Wikimedia account many times. What has changed? What to do now?

AKlapper (WMF) (talkcontribs)
Atsirlin (talkcontribs)

OK, solved. It looks like I always used the LDAP account without being aware of that.

Better emails content from edit of tasks

2
Summary by AKlapper (WMF)

User is free to change their email format in their settings.

Rical (talkcontribs)

When we edit a task, we can receive emails.

Their contents are a mix of the old and the new version of the edited job description.

In the edited task, we can see the change of 2 colors for the old and the new version. This could be useful.

Unfortunately, the email is only in black and white, so it becomes very confusing.

In emails, we can respect the colors or only report the new version or use the popups Navigation way. See this option that you can activate in your preference gadgets:

Navigation Popups: Article previews and editing features appear when you hover over links.

This seems the best way with 2 colors and the old barred version.

AKlapper (WMF) (talkcontribs)

The email is not only in black and white. The HTML version of the email is in colors when the task description has changed. If it's not for you then either your settings differ or your email client is broken.

Adding a due date to an existing task

Neil P. Quinn-WMF (talkcontribs)

I'm excited to see due dates available in Phab!

However, I'm not sure whether I should start using them yet. Right now, is it possible to add a due date to an existing task or to change a existing due date?

AKlapper (WMF) (talkcontribs)

Heh, I just asked the same question in Phab which I should have asked here instead if I had followed my own drill... :)

Quoting Mukunda from https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T191865#4140621 :

"Unfortunately, no it only works for newly created tasks that use the 'deadline' form to set the subtype of the task. I could add the field to all tasks but that would be distracting on the majority of tasks which wouldn't use it."

Unused Phab account deleted so the user could re-register with a correct email address

Pyscowicz (talkcontribs)

Hi. I created my Phabricator accout some months ago and now i'm trying to verify my email address. However the email address where message was sent is my main email address without dot so Phabricator thinks it is "firstnamelastname@gmail.com" when it should be firstname.lastname@gmail.com. I changed my MediaWiki email address to my alternative email address that doesnt have dots but the email address is still the same on Phabricator.

AKlapper (WMF) (talkcontribs)

https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/p/Pyscowicz/ showed "Email not verified". I deleted that Phab account so you can re-register.

Jeremyb (talkcontribs)

that *shouldn't* matter, both will land in the same gmail inbox. but I guess moot now that you're already deleted.

AKlapper (WMF) (talkcontribs)

I already explained why the account is disabled. If you want to see it enabled you have to argument why and explain your previous behavior a few months ago which led to disabling your account.
