Hello, I have no access to CU information on votewiki. Is this intentional?

@Ajraddatz Please make sure that you are logged in and then visit this page. The CU information should be there. You are already an admin of the election (SecurePoll:746) and have electionadmin userright.

This isn't a site request, as stewards can manage global group permissions. Looking at logs of staff rights changes:

02:40, 25 May 2016 Bsadowski1 talk contribs changed global group permissions for Special:GlobalUsers/staff: added (none); removed userrights, userrights-interwiki, centralauth-lock, globalblock (Requested by Jamesofur)

shows staff were able to do this before May 2016, at which point it was changed at Jamesofur's request. I recommmend requesting this from the stewards, and closing this task as invalid, given it's not a site request nor anything that's not done via the web.

jrbs triaged T222663: Disable 2FA for User:Alangi_Derick on Wikitech as High priority.

The most common identity confirmation I've seen for Wikitech 2FA resets is to create a file in your home folder on a Toolforge/Cloud VPS bastion referencing this ticket, eg ~/T222663 with contents Please reset my Wikitech 2FA.. (Password reset § Reset two factor authentication) Another option is to email ca at wikimedia dot org from the email associated with your account and include a link to this ticket.

Sorry for delay. This still does not work. Uploading a PDF to the tool just results in a red loading bar and this message in the console:

@Varnent: See Krinkle's previous comment. While the section of the part that you quoted mentions third parties, it does not mention IP address, user agent information, or geolocation information.

Which would mean that no admin could ever be partially blocked without removing their rights... its a loophole that I believe should be address

I feel like a user who is trusted enough to be able to perform MassMessages is unlikely to be subject to a partial block like this?

@jrbs I think this has been fixed. Can you confirm?

jrbs added a comment to T220432: Clean up "easter egg" short URLs before extension goes live.

I'd like to go back to the main purpose of this feature: to provide a URL shortener to be used in the Wikimedia projects, because all the other URL shorteners are blacklisted for security reasons. For example, long links generated by the Wikidata Query Service. So the main goal of this URL shortener is to be used directly in the Wikimedia projects.
However, in the Wikimedia projects, different ways already exist to create links to other projects in a quick way: not only the existing short URLs like enwp.org, but the templates [[d:...]], {de:wikt:...]] etc. Adding more to the new URL shortener would not solve any problem that is not already covered by these existing methods.

Personally, while I think the easter egg URLs are generally cute, they have almost zero rhyme or reason right now so I'm not sure they should remain as they are. I like the idea of using two-letter codes for language projects though you obviously run into the issue of only being able to link to one project in that language that way (e.g. w.wiki/de would presumably go to de.wikipedia.org, not de.wiktionary.org, etc).
