Hi there. Hopefully I'm doing this right - please let me know if I've borked it:

Did she log into wikitech and set a real password instead of the temporary one? That would populate user_password.

Just wanted to leave a comment thanking you all for creating and deploying this feature - it's been incredibly useful to me lately, something I didn't even realized I needed so badly until I had it! Thank you, thank you, thank you :)

To be clear, you tried viewing a page like https://office.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?title=Does_not_exist&action=edit&redlink=1, and instead of a wiki interface, you got an error page like the below?
If so, this probably wasn't related to VisualEditor (or MediaWiki), I think these errors are generated by load balancers or something. I also don't see anything that would point to VisualEditor in the error logs around that time (Logstash).

For the record, Roan asked me to file this so that it existed in a reviewable format for him/his team. How priorities are hashed out among phab users is not something I'm familiar with, so I don't know if "he asked me to" matters, or whether he wanted to review it because he thought it was workable or because he just wanted to wontfix it officially or what.

Bumping this thread, as this bug (at least, I think it's this bug) has surfaced on Meta this week and caused rather a lot of annoyance for people trying to track translation progress on multiple languages.
Bumping this gently, since this type of fallback has been requested by community members on Meta this week (in the context of the current workaround being somewhat unintuitive and people being redirected back to English if it's not done exactly right). Any chance someone could make this happen?
