About this board

Majavah (talkcontribs)

I have blocked you for a month because you have continued to make disruptive Phabricator block appeals without addressing the original block reason after being asked to address that multiple times. Many of your actions here were disruptive, too: for example you have incorrectly added translation tags or changed generic examples to contain WMF-specific terms.

If you wish to make useful contributions after the block expires you're very much welcome to. If you continue to make disruptive edits after this block has expired, you may be blocked indefinitely. If you want to appeal this block; you may do so here, I believe other administrators are watching this page and can respond to it. You won't be unblocked unless you can demonstrate you understand why you were blocked and how you will avoid causing such disruption in the future.

PythonSwarm (talkcontribs)

OK but I am asking for this to be reduced to a partial block only including the User talk namespace that I disrupted.

Majavah (talkcontribs)

As I said, you won't be unblocked unless you can demonstrate you understand why you were blocked and how you will avoid causing such disruption in the future.

PythonSwarm (talkcontribs)

I understand that I was blocked on phab due to disruptive comments and blocked here due to disruptive appeals, and I will not make disruptive appeals.

Phabricator account disabled

45
Summary by PythonSwarm

Still not reenabled my account.

Legoktm (talkcontribs)

I disabled your Phabricator account because your actions with incorrectly setting priorities, improperly filing Kiwix bugs, and assigning tasks to others without their consent is disruptive. If you understand that your actions have been disruptive but also learn how to use Phabricator properly by reading the documentation and observing others, I'm happy to re-enable your account.

PythonSwarm (talkcontribs)

Unblock my account. I have read the docs about priority and I would like you to unblock my account.

Legoktm (talkcontribs)

Can you please confirm the following:

  • You won't assign tasks to users or subscribe them without their consent
  • You won't adjust the priority on tasks unless you yourself will be working on them, and still following the guidelines
  • You won't file Kiwix bugs in Phabricator unless the Kiwix team explicitly asks you to do so

And in general, if someone asks you to stop doing something, you won't continue doing it.

If you can confirm you'll follow those guidelines then I'll re-enable your account.

PythonSwarm (talkcontribs)

Also, I am a Kiwix developer.

Legoktm (talkcontribs)

As far as I can tell, you've made one pull request to a Kiwix repository that hasn't been merged yet, which doesn't make you a Kiwix developer.

PythonSwarm (talkcontribs)

I am working on it.

PythonSwarm (talkcontribs)

Yes. I can.

I've enabled your account again.

AKlapper (WMF) (talkcontribs)

@ThesenatorO5-2 Hi, I unfortunately disabled your Phabricator account again because of continued unhelpful activity, for example adding random tags or closing tasks for no good reason. This is disruptive and has been pointed out before.

PythonSwarm (talkcontribs)

I confirm that I will not edit tags for no good reason.

PythonSwarm (talkcontribs)

Can you please unblock my account? I closed that task because I have submitted a PR and have fixed that problem.

AKlapper (WMF) (talkcontribs)

@ThesenatorO5-2 A software bug does not get fixed for all people by *proposing* a change without having that change merged. Furthermore, I did not disable this account because of one single action, but due to repeated unhelpful activity though having requested to refrain from that.

PythonSwarm (talkcontribs)

If my account is blocked I cannot even see the tasks.

AKlapper (WMF) (talkcontribs)

@ThesenatorO5-2 That would surprise me. By default, tasks are public, and can be accessed without being logged in. If you cannot see something, then please provide clear and full steps to reproduce that problem, including an example link and explaining what exactly (full text / error message) you are seeing instead.

PythonSwarm (talkcontribs)

For example, I try to access someone's homepage, and it says that my account is disabled.

AKlapper (WMF) (talkcontribs)

Feel free to log out; after that it should work.

PythonSwarm (talkcontribs)

It works.

PythonSwarm (talkcontribs)

But please unblock my account. I will refrain from that.

AKlapper (WMF) (talkcontribs)

You have been asked several times and you chose to continue with disruptive actions. I am not sure if you understand why this has been a problem; please feel free to elaborate why you think that this pattern would change. For one example, I don't understand why one would tell people to reinstall software (which they simply cannot as they were refering to software running on Wikimedia servers) when they are after fixing problems in the codebase. Phabricator is an issue tracking system, not a support desk.

PythonSwarm (talkcontribs)

Firstly, I am relatively new to phabricator and I do not know much about the rules. I think that that person is referring to a server built by himself.

AKlapper (WMF) (talkcontribs)

@ThesenatorO5-2 That's why I'd ask you to first watch, learn, and understand processes, or ask to understand things if they are unclear, instead of directly assuming things (which then might turn out wrong).

For that example, the person was not referring to a server built by themselves (why would you assume so?), and assuming that the person is male (by writing "himself") might also be incorrect here. :)

PythonSwarm (talkcontribs)

I just think the all Mediawiki problems are reported at phabricator.

AKlapper (WMF) (talkcontribs)

To reply to what you wrote: Phabricator is for bug reports and feature requests. Problems with configuring MediaWiki are out of scope.

Your reply does not pick up any of the points that I made in my previous comment, though. Could you reply to what I wrote? Thanks!

PythonSwarm (talkcontribs)

Firstly, yes. my assumptions are wrong. I think that he was talking about his own server because that seems like a installation error.

AKlapper (WMF) (talkcontribs)

My previous comments about watching, learning, asking have not received a reply.

@ThesenatorO5-2 Regarding your last comment, as we are talking about T260307, assuming "he" and "his" is wrong here. Please don't assume that all people are male. Furthermore, the task description links to a Wikimedia website and not somebody's "own server" (please don't assume). Furthermore, "Reinstall and try again." is not a helpful comment, as it ignores the actual reported problem, and that's one example why I wrote "not constructive".

How to connect my Dev account with my MW account? Also I understand all the problems and I want my account unblocked. I acknoledge that the next time may lead to a indefininte block.

AKlapper (WMF) (talkcontribs)

How is connecting a developer account to your MW account related to Phabricator, and what does "connecting" mean exactly?

PythonSwarm (talkcontribs)

My developer account is NullPointer, with the shell name being nullpointerexception.

PythonSwarm (talkcontribs)

My developer account is NullPointer, with the shell name being nullpointerexception.

AKlapper (WMF) (talkcontribs)

I don't know which two things to "connect", and what "connect" means here, and how this is related to Phabricator, sorry.

PythonSwarm (talkcontribs)

I means that I want to create a Wikitech developer account, and I want that account to be connected to this account, and related to Phab.

AKlapper (WMF) (talkcontribs)
PythonSwarm (talkcontribs)

Also, how to upload my SSH key to Gerrit?

AKlapper (WMF) (talkcontribs)

This thread is called "Phabricator account disabled". It is not about Gerrit or SSH...

Documentation exists and is linked from the frontpage: Gerrit/Tutorial.

PythonSwarm (talkcontribs)

But can you kindly unblock my phab account?

AKlapper (WMF) (talkcontribs)
AKlapper (WMF) (talkcontribs)
PythonSwarm (talkcontribs)

That is just another account connected to my Wikitech account. Can you please delete the old phabricator account and unblock this one? I have learned a lesson from that.

AKlapper (WMF) (talkcontribs)
PythonSwarm (talkcontribs)

Well, I have learned from that, and I will do whatever looks sensible, since they are mostly not disruptive. Also, I want to have my old account deleted or merged into the new one.

AKlapper (WMF) (talkcontribs)

After adding your previous comment you marked this topic thread as resolved, then reopened, then hid it, then reopened it. I don't know why this was done and it seems to me that unneeded disruptive actions unfortunately seem to continue.

PythonSwarm (talkcontribs)

Well I am just attempting to do so ;-)
