Unable to login to Striker
Closed, ResolvedPublic


I just created a toolforge account connected to my (hopefully future) bot account, DannyS712_bot. After creating the account, I went to log in, but I couldn't. I tried every possible username (DannyS712_bot, DannyS712bot, dannys712_bot, etc) with my password but it just wouldn't work. Is there a way to reset my account? There wasn't a "forgot username or password" button. Please help

Hi @DannyS712, could you please provide exact steps to reproduce, including URLs? Where exactly did you try to log in?

I was at and I put in the login I had just created (created at It didn't work.
When I tried to make the account again, just in case it hadn't registered, I was told that "Wikimedia account is already in use."

Did you try DannyS712 bot instead of DannyS712_bot, i.e. with the underscore changed to a space?

There wasn't a "forgot username or password" button.

This is a known issue: T174469: LDAP account that is not attached on wikitech has no means for password reset

I have attached the DannyS712 bot developer account on Wikitech. This will let you use Wikitech's password reset feature to reset the password of your new developer account. I am not currently seeing any sign of repeated failed password attempts in the LDAP directory entry for this account.

bd808, thanks for attaching the account! There wasn't any sign of repeated failed attempts because, to be honest, I had completely forgotten about the issue. I have logged in, and it works! Thanks
