I am a user who collaborates daily on Wikimedia projects (mainly Wikinews). Here in Phabricator on certain occasions I make requests for configuration changes or opinions on a specific task. If you want to contact me, you can do it in my talk page in Meta.

If he has access to the form, I could privately give @Aklapper the text (by IRC or mail) so he could create the paste and speed it up.

AlvaroMolina raised the priority of T181073: Reset 2FA for AlvaroMolina in Phabricator from Normal to Needs Triage.

AlvaroMolina triaged T181073: Reset 2FA for AlvaroMolina in Phabricator as Normal priority.

@Aklapper I followed that page before arriving here, however, the procedures on that page are outdated since, for example, the link in the second step does not work. On the other hand, I have a Committed Identity on my user page in Meta, I do not know if it is possible to do anything with that.

AlvaroMolina added a comment to T175197: Deployment wiki is flooded by spam and should be cleaned up, perhaps even restricted more.

@Mainframe98: I've already given you the global permission that allows you to manage restricted abuse filters. Regards.

AlvaroMolina closed T175197: Deployment wiki is flooded by spam and should be cleaned up, perhaps even restricted more as Resolved.

@Mainframe98: I've given you the administrator permission on the Beta Cluster so that you can act for yourself in case you encounter such situations. I close this task because the spam has already been removed and the accounts have been globally locked, if you have access to the restricted abuse filters, it would be appreciated that you could implement them so that it is not so easy to spam there. Regards.

Done, although the user does not have much trajectory in Wikimedia, I have seen its work in other external wikis and I do not see problem by now. Please use the permission wisely. Regards.

AlvaroMolina added a comment to T162845: Creating the "interface editor" permission on Portuguese Wikivoyage.

I think the option here is to wait for Portuguese Wikivoyage to get local bureaucrats or, in its absence, to appoint the stewards to take over this permission on the wiki in the same way that is done with the administrator's permission.

AlvaroMolina added a comment to T162845: Creating the "interface editor" permission on Portuguese Wikivoyage.

This wiki does not have local bureaucrats and I am not sure if the developers/stewards will agree that the 3 admins there can grant and remove this permission (since it allows editing the CSS and JS of the other users and the MediaWiki namespace).

Hi, thank you for your request! I have only small question. Who should be able to grant and revoke it? Otherwise you'll need to go to stewards everytime.

I finally got access, WinSCP had deleted the SSH public key file I had set in the settings. Thank you anyway.

@AlvaroMolina can you provide more details?

What is the configuration of your setup? What VM are you trying to get into? Can you SSH into the bastion directly? What bastion do you have configured? Do you have more detailed logs of a connection attempt?

AlvaroMolina added a comment to T158568: Problems accessing replica.my.cnf in my Tool Labs repository.

The file /data/project/alvaro/replica.my.cnf is readable by the tool itself:

scfc@tools-bastion-03:~$ ls -l ~tools.alvaro/replica.my.cnf 
-r-------- 1 tools.alvaro tools.alvaro 52 Apr 25  2016 /data/project/alvaro/replica.my.cnf
scfc@tools-bastion-03:~$

So you can become alvaro and, for example, cat replica.my.cnf.

(BTW, regarding "I need the credentials of my database to install MediaWiki on my server for testing purposes", I'm not sure what that means, but it's probably wrong to try and won't work anyway.)

AlvaroMolina added a comment to T154461: Enable FlaggedRevs to have Special:Stabilization for admins on Spanish Wikinews (es.wikinews).

This special page is a part of FlaggedRevs (see https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:FlaggedRevs) so this extension must be enabled. Enabling an extension is a site configuration change and https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Requesting_wiki_configuration_changes should be followed in this case.

In brief

  1. Discuss it on-wiki and link to that discussion here.
  2. Say the result here.
  3. Your request will be processed if there is a community consensus.

    Until the discussion is completed this is blocked on community so I'm marking it this way.

AlvaroMolina added a comment to T68006: Disable images in signatures.

There are several users (including me) who use an image as part of their signature, I believe that this aspect should not be banned altogether (at least not at the software level). I personally since my beginnings in Wikimedia projects I use my image and I have never been questioned that anywhere.
