Please disable Two-factor authentication for user Arsog1985 because he has enabled it accidentally and now can't use his account. These users know Arsog1985 in real life and their signatures confirm that he has lost his account. Please compare the signatures with this list, you can easily see that they are the most active users of Armenian Wikipedia. Arsog1985 also can provide information about his Preferences and Watchlist.
So, here some technical data to help recovery process:
- the user doesn't have any email linked to the account pre-SUL.
- the user doesn't have any email linked to the account post-SUL
- 2FA is indeed enabled
Some social data about the wiki:
- no CU
- no bureaucrat
- 10 administrators, including Arsog1985 and 3 persons declaring we can trust the request
@Ashot1997 Did Arsog1985 link to another source of authentication outside a Wikimedia wiki or an e-mail we can use to help to authenticate the request? For example, did it publish on the village pump or elsewhere a blog or a Twitter account?
Could you explain a little bit the process followed by the signees to check the identity?
Meanwhile, I've noticed the logs exhibit the following pattern:
- successful login operations until June 23
- failed login operation June 24, coherent with the elements presented in the request, and an IP
I've asked to a steward a CU to compare this IP with past contributions, as hy.wikipedia doesn't have any local checkuser. The request is here, and "Positive, without any doubt.".
As such, there is enough evidence the request is legitimate to reset the 2FA.
Please join #wikimedia-operations and write something like:
!log Removed 2FA for Arsog1985 SUL account (T168779)
A bot will then publish the entry to https://wikitech.wikimedia.org/wiki/Server_Admin_Log, that helps for transparency and future reference.
