Pine added a comment to T209659: Non-existent user account blocking creation of new account?.

Aha. I thought that all accounts were supposed to exist on Meta, but I guess not.

I hit this same bug today. It affected me when using the mobile interface and when logging into *.wikimedia.org. I was able to log into ENWP, then navigate to meta.wikimedia.org, then switch to the desktop interface. That sequence let me log into Meta successfully.

Pine added a project to T193769: Thousands of failed login attempts (wrong password): WMF-Legal.

In addition to technical security mitigation and investigation, I hope that WMF Legal is involved in this matter, perhaps on one or more restricted Phab task(s). Feel free to revert my tagging of WMF-Legal on this task if someone with relevant knowledge thinks that the tag is unnecessary.

@JAllemandou OK, but in the process of trying to internationalize the numbering system you confused this native English speaker. :) I request that this system of abbreviations be prominently displayed on any page in Wikistats 2.0 where it is used, with translations made available for every language in which Wikimedia wikis exist via a drop-down or other selection system.

Thanks for linking the history, Anomie. I am re-opening this bug, as I have problems with both of the arguments that were given in 2012 in task T42006 as the reasons for declining the task as invalid, and I am expecting a new 2018 review of this matter from WMF Legal or someone else with the authority to speak for WMF. If WMF re-affirms the previous WMF position on this matter with the same reasoning then I think that a policy change should be considered; the discussion about the policy change would likely happen in a location other than Phabricator.

Pine added a comment to T183876: Consider whether auto-created user accounts should be hidden at the time of creation.

Thinking about what welcome messages could be provided to users who have an account auto-created for them on a wiki that they visit if the review from WMF Legal or a community policy change results in these user creation logs being made confidential or being fully omitted from logs in the future, perhaps the user could be offered a welcome message that the community could customize and would be displayed to the user privately instead of publicly on the user's talk page.

I appreciate WMF staff working on this during what I think is supposed to be their winter break. :) Unless I'm misunderstanding something, this ticket is about a technical problem and not a community policy issue, and the source of the technical problem is an open question, so I am changing the status of this ticket back to "open". If someone is eventually able to determine that the source of the problem is from a tool that is currently not tracked on WMF Phabricator then this ticket may be again be closed for that reason.

Pine added a comment to T141806: Email being rejected by the Education mailing list.

I think that I've narrowed down the problem to 2 of the spam filters. I have left those set to moderation and the others to discard. You may start to see some spam held for moderation, but hopefully good posts will be moderated instead of rejected by whichever spam filter has been causing good emails to get rejected.

Pine updated subscribers of T141806: Email being rejected by the Education mailing list.

@NSaad Thanks. I looked around the list settings and I don't see anything wrong. Additionally, the list is set to move emails that are filtered into the moderation queue instead of deleting them. If you're OK with leaving me as a list admin for the foreseeable future, I'd like to see what happens when an email goes to the list that gets blocked by a filter rule. The email should go to moderation, and while it's there I'd like to look at it to see if I can figure out what's causing the filter to trigger. Is that OK with you? Also pinging the other list admins @TFlanagan-WMF and @Esh77 to make sure that everyone agrees and knows what to expect. For emphasis: when emails get filtered and go to the moderation queue, please don't delete them or approve them before I look at them, because I want to look at them to try to figure out why messages are being filtered that shouldn't be filtered. Thanks!

Pine added a comment to T141806: Email being rejected by the Education mailing list.

@NSaad I haven't encountered this problem in awhile. If you, @TFlanagan-WMF and others are comfortable with appointing me as a list admin, I could spend a few minutes looking around around the list's settings. After I'm done with that, you can remove me from the list of admins or keep me -- either is fine, although if I start to get a lot of admin notifications then I may ask to be removed. One way or another, I hope that the underlying problem with the filter rule issue will get fixed.

OK. Not notifying the user about the signature requirement seems like a significant omission to me, particularly if the user uses the format {{ping|username}} which strongly indicates that the user intended to ping someone. Still, notification about a successful ping is more useful for my use case than no notification at all, so I will just accept this for the moment. Thanks.

@Addshore thanks. Unfortunately this feature isn't generating a failure notification when I attempt to ping myself on a Commons talk page. Also, I can't seem to get a failure notification when I ping another user and don't add my signature. I have commented in T135717#2644682.

@Lea_WMDE Thanks, that will certainly be better than having no ability for the user to test notifications. I see that https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T145390 says that the feature is being deployed this week. Will there be a failure notification if the user attempts to mention themselves? I wonder if users would get flooded with failure notifications if they use a lot of warning templates via Huggle or Twinkle, as noted above.

I'd strongly prefer to have the higher resolution. How about this: (1) default to WebM when using mobile data connections, and default to Ogg when using local wireless or wired connections, and (2), make clear to users, in a way more obvious than it is now, that they can switch formats, maybe by prominently displaying a button for "View in higher resolution (for high speed connections)" or "View in lower resolution (for low speed connections)"?

Thanks for the suggestion. Unfortunately that's more complicated than the arrangement I would like to see. My hope is for new users to be able to ping themselves with a test notification so that they can see how notifications work. Are there any other options for helping new users to test notifications without using multiple accounts? At some point I might write a bot that helps users to learn how notifications work, but without that bot and without users having the ability to ping themselves, I feel like the training for newbies about notifications is less robust than it should be.

I was looking forward to this functionality for test notifications, although I understand the reasons for disabling the functionality. Is there now any way for a user to send themselves a test notification?

@Esanders OK. How many months until it goes to production? I realize that an exact number is impossible to know, but an estimate would be helpful.

Brendan's previous explanation was about audio echoes. My question from my previous post is about dropped audio.

Thanks. I've asked about the timeline in that other task.

I'm wondering for the timeline of the rollout for this project. Is this 2 to 3 years away from going live, or are we likely to see changes to the wikitext editor within the next 6-12 months on production sites?

Pine closed T143247: Investigate replacements for Google Hangouts as Resolved.

I'm closing this as resolved, but I'm a bit reluctant because I still suspect that Hangouts is at fault for some problems. @bcampbell aside from the echo issue, what about the dropped audio issue? I notice that even in one-on-one meetings, Hangouts has a tendency to have problems like dropping audio, and this seems to be even more of a problem when in many-to-many meetings.

I feel that Google Hangouts is too buggy, so yes, there is a reason to investigate a replacement for it. It is possible that WMF could retain BlueJeans for internal use and replace public meetings with some other tool, whether that is BlueJeans, Zoom, or some other competitor.
