Thanks for filing, and sorry for the delay. We've looked into this and, unfortunately, we will have to deny this request. The account on Wikitech was created only minutes before filing this task, and therefore it's not technically possible to confirm this is actually your SUL account on Wikipedia.

jrbs added a comment to T182548: Interaction Timeline returns only partial results on complex queries.

@jrbs I don't think it is useful, that's why I'm raising the question if we should display so many edits that far apart from the first interaction. One solution to this would be to add more filters, like display X edits before/after each interaction.

jrbs added a comment to T182548: Interaction Timeline returns only partial results on complex queries.

Yup, this is because edits are sorted chronologically and in this case you'll only see Oshwah's edits until Drewmutt makes the first edit in a common page. which can take several pages scrolling down.

In my previous comment I said

This example does bring another issue(?). Should we display only one user's edit that far back before an actual interaction happened?

To illustrate this better, Oshwah has been making edits to his/her talk page since 2007 and Drewmutt made one edit in 2017, you will see hundreds of edits from Oshwah until you get to Drewmutt's. Does that makes sense?

jrbs added a comment to T178842: If a user has never triggered a logged action on a wiki, they should not be able receive emails by non-privileged users from there.

Noting in passing that this disabled the ability of enwiki users to email role accounts (User:Oversight and similar) which are expressly intended to receive emails only. Seems to me that the much better solution would have been to allow people to stop bot emails at their global preferences, or to select wikis from which they receive emails at the same point. This created unnecessary distress as people could not submit suppression requests.

We solved the problem by having the role account make an edit. That should not have been necessary - the entire purpose of the role account was that it would never edit, only receive emails.

@JJMC89 — Making a dummy edit opens up the ability to be emailed, and you won't have to worry about it again.

The 1.31.0-wmf.15 rollout has hit meta but not yet English Wikipedia. It should complete by end of day today. This makes testing cross-wiki features on production tricky.

Wiki is created, but have not created any accounts for anyone as requested. I had created one for myself to just sanity check a few things. Feel free to block it in the near future when the wiki starts being used (though, it's useful to keep around for a little while for any teething issues)

As @jrbs and @Jalexander both have shell access, they can both run mwscript createAndPromote.php --wiki=electcomwiki --sysop --bureaucrat <username> <password> to create their accounts... Probably easiest for them to communicate with @KTC to create hers. Obviously use a crappy password on the command line, then immediately log in and change it. Set an email address. Enable 2FA then too if you want.

VisualEditor is currently slightly broken, but will be sorted when I get the patch for parsoid made and deployed. Just waiting on a load of stuff to install on my vagrant vm, and I'll get that patch out and on here...

jrbs added a comment to T176379: Conduct a small-scale checkusers survey.

Can we use this opportunity to also ask the CUs about their ideas on how to overhaul the CU tool? It would greatly help complementing T139810 and addressing T132892

jrbs added a comment to T176270: Allow users to restrict which user groups can edit their own user page, talk page and subpages thereof.

I'm against this idea, as it undermines the wiki principle. Everyone should be able to reach other users on their talk page, this is a fundamental part of onwiki communication. I don't even think to "allow users to broadly prevent groups of users from interacting with them" is something we event want in a wiki!

E-Mail is a special case, it's a voluntary, private way of communicating that can be disabled by everyone if he wants to and isn't directly part of onwiki communication.

Hi @Alan - based on your email to us I have removed 2FA from your account. Please do keep "scratch codes" offline so that you can avoid this in the future :)

This is the link I followed to get this error (I had not edited on svwp previously, but could in theory create the page with my +staff): https://sv.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Medborgerlig_Samling_(2014)&action=edit&redlink=1
