How do I get rid of this crap WITHOUT! losing my user account with it's long track record and privileges?
I am currently correctly logged in, thus my identity right now is securely proven, so why must it be so hard to get either a new batch of scratch codes or a new QR code to reset an authenticator app?
We're writing an encyclopedia, not handling nuclear missile launch keys. Even my bank is not this paranoid!
AIUI i need scratch tokens to do that.
What are the chances of this being implemented fairly soon?
I'm in exactly the scenario described above, I need to set up a new authernication device rather urgently. My scratch codes were lost when a device I had stored them on broke.

AFC reviewers are now being criticised for missing copyvios. Earwig's copyvio tool is part of our standard workflow.

That page used to be updated by a bot on Toolserver. The criterion it used for "active watcher" was simply users who have logged in at least once in the previous 30 days. There is no need to see if the user visited or edited any particular page, it simply determined how many of the total page watchers are still active Wikipedians.

OK so what I'm hearing here is "sod off and fix it yourself" - this attitude by coders towards users is one of the major drivers of the decline of Wikipedia. Thanks for nothing!
We are drifting away from the actual issue - the fact that the default Sandbox user menu link does not work for experienced users who have a sandbox setup not at the default location.
- Until recently a redirect at the default location worked for these users.
- Redirect suppression is a logical and neccessary thing to do for new editors, so that they can easily find their sandboxes even after a draft has been moved from there.
- The problem is that advanced users have no way to disable the redirect suppression, this used to be possible through a Gadgets setting.

Let it not follow redirects by default but give users such as myself an option to enable the redirect.

Edokter makes a good point, at the AFC Help desk and at the Teahouse "How do I get back to my sandbox?" is a very common question.
A move from userspace to mainspace should not create a redirect, it should leave just a plain wikilink: "The draft that was here is now at [[Your new article]]"
