@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.

Xaosflux added a comment to T153454: Enable BotPasswords (or similar feature) for web/interactive access.

In reading, this would basically be BotPasswords - but also allowing interactive WEB editing. Perhaps that could just be another grant on the exiting system?

Xaosflux added a comment to T180538: Improve Special:Preferences UI/UX.

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.

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.

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.

Xaosflux added a comment to T174282: some autoconfirmed enwiki users are unable to edit semi-protected pages / create new articles.

I expect he should have been since ~2017-06-02 (passing the 4day+10 edits threshold)

Xaosflux added a comment to T153691: Strengthen two factor authentication by making it concurrent instead of sequential during the authentication process.

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?

Xaosflux added a comment to T170969: pageimages is listing non-free media as page_image_free.

on-wiki is too dependent on random editors - ANY non-free license should override any free license

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).
