Merged and deployed lemme know if that fixed it - sorry didn't get the chance to test it live as I no longer have a TS account. Let me know if you have a tool account and I add you as a deployer. Once the PR is merged deploying is usually just ssh'ing and running a shell script that does all the git and kubernetes steps.

jrbs lowered the priority of T288839: SecurePoll: You must log in to vote in this election [Timebox: 8h] from Medium to Low.

This was I believe resolved by AHT during their work on SecurePoll in 2020. It is now possible to insert the key through the tally UI on-wiki. (The tally UI is not perfect, but I used it just a couple of weeks ago for the 2022 Board elections, so it does work.)

@taavi has created 2 scripts to run (https://git.sr.ht/~taavi/bot2022-tool-maintainers) to get the list of SUL accounts that maintain a tool on Toolforge: P31142 (I've added @jrbs to the view policy hopefully). There's a small edge case around renamed users, but we can figure out how to resolve that if people are OK with getting this list of users added to the voting list.

I was researching how we might do this but the description from T288025: Create SecurePoll voter list for 2021 board vote says it was already backported and deployed when the task was filed. I'm pretty sure this will require a patch of some kind. I'd love to be able to put this together myself but I haven't the first idea how to do that.

Hi @jrbs,

This is a checkbox that can be checked if the limitation is needed, or unchecked if not. So it can work either way.

You can test it here: https://securepoll.wmf.labs.hallowelt.biz/w/index.php/Special:SecurePoll

Will share login details with you in private.

jrbs added a comment to T304930: STVBallot: Add optional limitation of number of seats .

Hi folks, some of the Foundation folks supporting the upcoming board election had some concerns around this patch - could we confirm that this is limiting the number of options that are rankable to a defined number? At the moment we have concerns that the "defined number" may be set to the number of seats, which is not a desirable outcome.

jrbs added a comment to T309900: Determine initial wikis for production deployment of ext:StopForumSpam.

@sbassett I think we could determine an initial set of trial wikis by actually looking at some global filters designed to stop spam, and add the top 10-ish wikis with the most filter hits for a period of e.g. 90 days. If my query at https://quarry.wmcloud.org/query/64424 for AF no. 72 is correct, I'd say we can safely add some of these, excluding Wikidata and ptwiki or other "large" wikis for now.

I like this approach, if you don't think 72 wikis are too much to deal with. Though I suppose there likely wouldn't be too much to deal with in report-only mode, unless the entire extension were having unforeseen issues.

jrbs lowered the priority of T97922: votewiki has Italian body in lang="en" tags from High to Medium.

Boldly lowering the priority to reflect the reality here (this is still a problem I believe but there has been no activity on this task for seven years)

I have added @Wong128hk and @jimmyxu as electionadmins so they can do the scrutiny. This can begin as soon as the vote starts.

Adjustment for intro and unqualified-error in T308397#7931435.

You will also need to have a translation for the top of the comments box (probably just the word "comments" or "additional comments").

The "comment-prompt" should be 投票附言(选填).

jrbs added a comment to T308397: Carry out an admin election of zhwiki on votewiki (May 2022).

I can do this but please be aware that comments will be publicly accessible (since the election is not encrypted). You should make this clear in the intro text.

What do you mean of "publicly accessible" - anyone could know a comment is given by a specific voter? Also wondering during the voting period, is it possible for anyone to know someone has voted immediately after they submit their vote (together with their comment, if the answer to the previous question is true)?

Hi @jrbs, the community made some amendments to the need-list (strike bot and vanished user), would you mind making an update?

Sure, I have overwritten it with the list on wiki

https://vote.wikimedia.org/ has been switched to language zh. The only culprit I find is that https://vote.wikimedia.org/ redirects to https://vote.wikimedia.org/wiki/%E9%A6%96%E9%A1%B5 ( 首页 ) which does not exist.

Should there be a minimum edit count for this election?

Hi folks, I'd like to loop in @ZS for the communications around this task. I can set up the election in SecurePoll today. I assume you want the same setup as in T295518: Carry out the zhwp trial admin voting decision elections on votewiki?
