User:LA2-bot needs to have password reset via CLI
Closed, ResolvedPublic


I forgot the login password to my bot account LA2-bot, which I haven't used since 2016. But no e-mail address is set, so I can't reset the password by receiving an e-mail. I'm told only a steward can set the e-mail address, which is what would help me. LA2-bot made many thousands of edits 2007-2016 and belongs to me, User:LA2. It should have the same e-mail address as LA2 has.

We stewards can only confirm that it's actually you who filed this request but we cannot reset the email address ourselves. Only a developer can. ;)

I verified the status of the bot account, and its userpages across all wikis clearly prove LA2 was/is the operator of LA2-bot. Proceeding.

I changed the email address assigned to the bot account to the one you have assigned to your personal account (LA2). You should now be able to self-service the actual password reset. Please reopen if anything doesn't work!
