Something seems to be missing here - you can enroll as many devices as you want, at any time with us - provided you store your two-factor secret key. That key can be re-used in the future to initialize more authentication clients at any time. So this is already information that the users have, though hopefully if they store it they store it safely. That being said, being able to access it online after re authenticating with 2FA seems fine to me.

Just ran across this again in discussion on enwiki: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Village_pump_(policy)#RFC:_Proposal_to_allow_Template_Editors_the_ability_to_indirectly_edit_the_Main_Page

This is now resolved, showing the default data
@Liuxinyu970226 if you want to follow up on that, please open a new ticket for problems with phabricator itself.

With multiple changes to this interface occurring, a new bug may be related and is reported in T177728.

@Antoniolexis2001 try clearing all your wikimedia cookies (if you can't find them clear all cookies) and try again. If you still can't log on please let us know much more details.

No please, adding extra steps to rollback will be very annoying. Fine for having an OPTION to "require confirmation for rollback (maybe also undo?) actions" that can be opted in to.

Creating the messages is not a blocking task, however I've already made the localizations so it is done anyway.

I like the idea of per-filter additional screening being an option.
@Elitre isn't that what we already have - there are messages assigned to these pages already, just make translations.
Even the help link is customizable on wiki from MediaWiki:helppage-top-gethelp

This is only with the current coding. I've used other 2FA systems such as RSA's token system, the logon screen has multiple boxes: userid, tokenPIN/tokenCode, password, realm. Failed logons for any reason all present the same error.
Certainly, the GUI reflects that as well. Short of asking him for his password what other options exist for troubleshooting this? Is there an "impersonate" feature that can be used by devs?

@jsn.sherman I can now log on.

Steps to reproduce now:
- go to wikipedialibrary.wmflabs.org
- press logon
- get error

Just had another user with issue (https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Wikipedia:Village_pump_(technical)&oldid=789384548#Problem_with_logging_in) Nineko - they only got in after finding a wiki they had never logged in to with central auth (zh.wikivoyage in this case).

@MusikAnimal - forget that last one - there was a deletion action in the middle there.
STRIKE THIS - it was a deletion/restoration

@Reedy is there anything you want done here?
@Zoranzoki21 see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Using_AWB_with_2FA for the "Easy Guide"
Just had another one reporting on enwiki, User:Thankyoubaby - had them resolve it by browsing directly to https://login.wikimedia.org

In some cases it could be desirable to link back, so if this is going to be implemented it should be in a manner that is editor controlled as to the link back target.

Please note, as decided in Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Screenshot/fodder the English Wikipedia community rejects having such test pages hosted in mainspace. Possible alternatives would be loading the text to a specific version, or using a different namespace.

If it really is a title only search perhaps "Show page titles containing:" would be ever better

@Mholloway is this concern related to a specific interface (e.g. the Android Mobile Client interface, the general Web interface) ?

@RobH (https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Wikipedia:Bureaucrats%27_noticeboard&oldid=782186616) was opened and closed out as DELETE the archives. Please review that discussion. Note there was no reply from WMF legal - but if there are legal controls in place than existing foundation policies would trump these volunteer decisions.

enwiki discussion has asked if there are WMF-Legal issues that need to be addressed - dropped them an email.

@RobH we will review the archive needs and submit a separate ticket for them if this is closed prior to a decision.

There is a enwiki RFC open that may resolve the community consensus question here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia_talk:Translation#RFC
One recurring issue has been trouble with the translation tool interface - it is hard to add community controlled messages in to the page - adding a MediaWiki transclusion to the page where community expectations could be spelled out may be sufficient. Any devs of this tool have options for us?
Apr 16 2017
@kaldari - the existence of the enwiki abusefilter is preventing all CXT by newer users to the English Wikipedia - however it does not represent a community consensus that machine translation is supported otherwise - please cite an enwiki discussion supporting enabling machine translation - the only thing I am seeing in https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Translation#Avoid_machine_translations - specifically saying to avoid machine translations for all editors.

Another example on enwiki - going to a page with editnotices (e.g. https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Abortion&action=edit) using the source editor works fine - if switching to VE the notices are lost, manually looking for them in the triangle button says no notices. (Firefox, monobook)

I'm not too picky on the "how" as long as the result is that information on if the password was correctly guessed is not revealed. Similarly, the authentication failed error message should not be different for bad token vs bad password vs bad both.
Suggested implementation would be to collect all authentication information simultaneously (userid, passphase, 2FA response). For accounts without 2FA enabled, simply ignore any (including null responses) to the challenge response.

I'm not sure what dewiki is trying to do, but its a mess to readers right now who are seeing this:
Thank you for the note.
I suppose whatever parts the local communities want. If devs are pushing that only plain text and the variable will be supported for this interface then this (and the parent) should just be moved to won't fix.
