@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?

@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)

In Firefox 50.1.0 I don't see a key named network.cookie.maxPerHost - is the workaround suggesting to create this key, is so what datatype?

I'd like to see an optional set of parameters for protection to solve this. 2 possible workflows:

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.
@Anomie this is "by design" ?
@Legoktm it appears that both the use of #if statements, as well as wiki formatting like bold are no longer being processed.

Related discussion with some examples:
For global renames: would be handy to have a "name history" - perhaps a seperate log request - e.g. given a current name, what were all prior names. This is available in the global rename log, but has to be recursively queried name by name.
@Legoktm thank you - verified it works for multi-action Global Renames as well.
@Legoktm no more of the opposite - entering only the "current" name should be able to find the rename log that made the current name come in to existence.
Adding "prior username" to the local move log would be fine and could be useful too

Maybe the footer needs work too - that doesn't tell you if it came from say enwiki, eswiki, dewikibooks, etc
Perhaps something like email@example.com and include which project generated the mail? Examples:
firstname.lastname@example.org; email@example.com; etc./

Our standard project settings don't give bots editinterface access - this has to be specifically added, project policies should be able to resolve your concerns - and if someone won't follow policy they don't get access.
@Krinkle BotPassword restrictions in general are working (for example I didn't enable rollback on my personal account and couldn't use utilities like Huggle that checked for it until I did).
Nov 16 2016
I believe it is time based - had you recently authenticated before attempting this?
Nov 15 2016
Community notified this is going live, baring any last min complaints here.
@Reedy I don't think this is really an OATH issue. This already is happening for certain sensitive actions such as password change and email change. This could be accomplished by simply requiring re-authentication in general for additional actions.
Nov 13 2016
@Reedy I'm successfully using BotPasswords with AWB already - what is this task about?
Nov 12 2016
@Bawolff - perhaps refactor this task to be about including a preference link ?
This does not appear to actually be broken. I just successfully un-enrolled an account that was no longer eligible to enroll. (testwiki:user:xaosflux_ep)
Note: If you create a BotPassword for yourself, you can use that to log on to AWB even if 2FA is normally enabled on your account.

Shows that the enwiki community has not yet completed the migration of users for part 2 of this patch. Please push the deployment.
Nov 8 2016
No worries, I put out one final call for community objections on enwiki.
Nov 2 2016
That will likely be sufficient we should know in a couple of days.
As it is short on time - DELAY this patch - pending outstanding community activity noted at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia_talk:New_pages_patrol/Reviewers#Reported_issues_with_the_initial_NPR_grand-fathering_list
@Cenarium part two MAY need to be further delayed. While there are no issues with part-1, the community RfC for part 2 included getting a grandfathering process in for certain users - and it is being problematic.

Wed night or Thursday should be fine.
The new group is present and appears to be working - thank you.

+Consensus-needed tag as it has been questioned
Oct 26 2016
That sounds best - this will move forward but having the overlap will avoid a break in service for potentially good reviews (it may be argued that breaking bad reviews is better but for a SHORT period it won't catch anything on fire).
Oct 25 2016
@Kudpung already got the localization ready to go:
@andymw, correct they do not on enwiki - checking with RfC closer - just as the RfC mentioned stewards this is not likely necessary - but if so it will need to be "added" to that group - not maintained.

Note: fails not only during transclusions, but also when just linking:

Note the enwiki comment above, appears to only occur if the student trying to register does not have a gender specified in preferences - and they are prompted to "optional" select a gender to complete enrollment - but any option leads to the failure state; if they set a gender in preference first this dialog page is not presented and the enrollment passes

+Consensus needed tag; this is under discussion on enwiki - and we should not assume that all other projects need to have most users altering content models for pages.
