@Tgr - Would you mind commenting on the feasibility of this and/or if it fits a planned strategy (or if there is a competing strategy already?). Thank you.
In reading, this would basically be BotPasswords - but also allowing interactive WEB editing. Perhaps that could just be another grant on the exiting system?
Another parallel request on enwiki from @Rehman : https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Wikipedia:Village_pump_(idea_lab)&oldid=825396470#Separate_password_for_logging_in_with_limited_access

@TheDJ I'll re-titled this request for just that action so it can be closable, can update https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Help:Extension:Media_Viewer - question: I noticed "span" is in the list at mmv.HtmlUtils.js - will that drag any inline "style=" markup with it if attached to the span?
Steps to reproduce:
- Use session configured to use mediaviewer
- Go to https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=User:Xaosflux/sandbox52&oldid=824719956
- Click the image

Just heard this was going forward in https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/405670 - was there a task that solved the "consensus needed" problem referenced above?

I added accountcreator to Gamaliel on enwiki, I don't expect this will DO anything, as this editor is already +sysop.

This is a "lower" security type flag, if itis part of core it should have a way to use it - so sure let 'crat have it. I'd be fine with local sysop's having it too (as this is a power they already have themselves).

@Anomie - if so, can this task be reformatted to something like "Add tagging functionality and default to the Import function" ?
@Jdforrester-WMF see also discussion at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MediaWiki_talk:Wikimedia-copyrightwarning#Protected_edit_request_on_18_December_2017 ; may need a subtask

The main push from this was for import vs direct - just trying to kill more birds with one stone.

In addition to IP address, how about also including user agent? Parsing it would be "harder" but other login notify systems (e.g. google) would say "a chrome browser" on a "windows computer", etc - but even just the raw useragent may be enough.

Thanks for the revert, as mentioned in the monobook subtask, I think a majority of the layout issues were from not respecting client resolutions - unlike almost every other page that is dynamic, forcing in a max-pixel width in to some elements leads to all sorts of problems on desktop displays.
Dec 2 2017
As far as "what else could go there" - look at examples in https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Preferences#mw-prefsection-gadgets -- notice the section title elements make use of the page, but then there is an unnecessary maximum width in the body, causing line wrapping that should not be required at wide resolutions.
@Jdforrester-WMF this is not limited to monobook or enwiki, I just created a new account - all defaults with private browsing and hopped over to meta.

As some of the screenshots in T181770 show, there are some significant white space layout design challenges, that become very noticeable at high resolutions.
Looks like most of all the issues are related to alignment and not respecting dynamic screen sizes (esp. for wide screens).

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.

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?

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.
