Registration on wikimedia.riot.im requires a wikimedia.org email address
Closed, InvalidPublic

Description

I tried unsuccessfully to register new accout. Looks like I need to have an email with @ wikimedia.org. Intention or oversight?

Aklapper removed subscribers: Neilmatrix, kostajh, CCicalese_WMF and 19 others.

(Removing most of CC list; please be mindful who to notify when creating subtasks as Phab can be noisy)

I think this was covered in T230531#5415697?

Aklapper renamed this task from Can only WMF employees test? to Registration on wikimedia.riot.im requires a wikimedia.org email address.Apr 25 2020, 10:26 AM

(CC list . Ups & sorry. I left the default settings in the belief that it corresponds to good practice.)
Partly yes - 50 users limit. I see. What is the further plan and at what stage are we now?

Forgot to close this when wikimedia.riot.im was decommissioned. It was a test instance for a WMF-internal Matrix chat system, so registration was limited to WMF staff. I do hope we'll have a Matrix instance open to the entire community once - see T254691: Consider hosting an instant messaging software and T193961: Set up Matrix.org homeserver on the Wikimedia Cloud VPS about that.
