As reported on this thread, MassMessage doesn't seem to be working on dty.wikipedia.
Suspicion is that it is due to the fact that this imported page already had an edit of <code>MediaWiki message delivery</code> causing conflict. In fact if we try to browse the local contributions of that account, while the imported edit appears, there's a message at the top saying that there's no account registered with that name.
Testing has involved the use of the global and local message delivery system:
- Global: sending a message from Meta-Wiki to my talk page to dtywiki resulted in correct preview and sending. No error messages but the message never arrived. I guess some sort of log entry indicating that an error has occured should've been printed in the logs.
- Local: trying to use MassMessage locally at dtywiki fails in the preview phase with this exception: [Wo72rApAMFQAAHYJKwsAAABG] 2018-02-22 16:58:20: Excepción grave de tipo "UnexpectedValueException".
My guess is that's happening due to that conflicting edit there.
Solutions I see:
- give me green light and I'll locally rename MediaWiki message delivery at dty.wikipedia to something else, leaving that account free and ready for the system to use it, or;
- do something else server/DB side.
Possible other issues:
An investigation should happen to see if this problem exists elsewhere as well. A maintenance script should then be coded to fix those in order for the service be effective. Also, errors should be printed in the mass message log for us to know, instead of silently failing.
