My fall-back account on IRC is Fae_, with Fae being an alias for Faelig.
Though I am sysop for #wikimedia-lgbt and the creator of the channel, I now appear unable to stay logged in to the channel, and the irc.freenode.org nameserver appears to be refusing my reconnection attempts today, even as Fae. This is especially important as #wikimedia-lgbt is one of the official ways that the WMLGBT+ User Group communicates.
When I was able to log in to the channel yesterday as Fae, I was told that the banning of my alternate on wikimedia-lgbt was due to limiting all Wikimedia channels to cloaked accounts. This appears a misunderstanding, as this appears to have only been happening on wikimedia-lgbt, not on wikimedia-commons or wikimedia-uk.
A search on Phabricator appears to show no official tasks that document whether this was an "official" security decision or not. Could someone please fill me in on what is happening or provide a link where volunteers are being told what is happening, and could someone take a look at whether my main IRC account is now banned for any reason?
