I saw a recent comment on "Phab", and I thought you might like to see Bug management/Phabricator etiquette and Phabricator/Project management#Priority levels. Editors are very welcome at Phab, but it can seem pretty strange compared to the wikis. Some stufff belongs there, and other comments are expected to be elsewhere. Feel free to ask questions at Phabricator/Help whenever you want.

Reply to "Phabricator"
Hi @Whatamidoing (WMF); thanks for the links! I gather raising the priority at https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T42763 wasn't the right course of action. Is it also not typically helpful to flag instances where requests for stale tasks have come up on Wikipedia, or is that something that can be useful? I appreciate your guidance.
The way I usually do that (because it can be helpful) is to post a comment in the Phab task that says something like "This was requested at [permalink] by @TechEditor". It's particularly helpful to add links to discussions that have specific descriptions of what's needed or what problems need to be solved. It's less helpful when the discussion is routine/boring/vague (but I still sometimes do it if there's been no activity on the Phab task for a very long time).
It's also very helpful to add links to Phab tasks on wiki. If you know (or can quickly find) a Phab task for what someone's asking, then posting a link on wiki helps tie the two conversations together for everyone.
