Hi, I'm Kevin! I'm an infrequent contributor at Phab; across Wikimedia, my most active project is the English Wikipedia, where I'm an administrator and arbitrator.

While interim stopgap measures (e.g. Znuny) should be implemented, this is a good opportunity to revisit the software we're using for email response purposes. OTRS is notoriously difficult to use: for example, I have heard from many English Wikipedia CheckUsers who refuse to use OTRS due to the difficult interface. Previously, the chief advantage of OTRS was its open-source ethos; unfortunately, that seems to no longer be a benefit. We should seriously consider using vaguely modern and well-designed CRM software, and switch away from OTRS and its descendant projects as soon as technically and logistically reasonable.

This is a big issue and I hope that it receives priority for fixing.

See also the recent discussion on enwiki which prompted this, and a user script that mitigates this issue: https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Wikipedia:Administrators%27_noticeboard&oldid=953329946#Fun_admin_script.

Done per IRC request.

This is an urgent issue for the enwiki community. This allows users to easily circumvent the new page patrol process, on pages that have usually been unwatched but are precisely the ones that are not notable enough for articles (that's why they're redirects in the first place). I hope that we'll see a fix for this as soon as possible. Thanks!

@Dzahn, I was intending to make Board business (voting and reports and such) easier replacing our current patchwork system, so I think a second list would be needed, but to avoid the confusion, perhaps "wikimedia-us-ia-board" would be better?
Thanks @Dzahn! Per the description, could you create firstname.lastname@example.org as well?

Chmarkine, there's always StartCom/StartSSL which has free certs, and they're already trusted by default in all major browsers.

Also reproduced in Firefox Developer Edition and Firefox Nightly (on the same machine):
I can reproduce this at https://sv.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pwdes?veaction=edit. Screenshot attached.

Thanks. I suspected that was the issue but wasn't sure.

it's not working (if you try to search "wm2016:" on any wiki) nor is it showing up in Special:Interwiki
This needs to be added to the interwiki table as "wm2016", keeping in line with the previous Wikimania wikis.

Can confirm that I'm also getting this on several pages on en.wp. It's intermittent and happens in about one in two requests.
