Why does Mediawiki need a different account than Wikipedia

I wanted to report a bug via Phabricator, but<br/>

It seems that, if I want to log in to '''Mediawiki''' I need a different account than '''Wikipedia'''.

If this is so, why does '''Mediawiki''' need a different account than '''Wikipedia'''?

It doesn't, wikipedia and mediawiki wiki are part of the SUL login environment, If you weren't automatically logged in via centralauth, You may just need to login again.

Phabricator is not powered by MediaWiki so it features its own authentication system, but we Use oAuth (the "Login with MediaWiki" button) so it will use the your SUL account details.
