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.

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

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).

jrbs updated subscribers of T169543: Set up / identify Salesforce database for takedown tools.

Is this still stalled? Salesforce is up and running now.

I think the idea was to have the data posted to Salesforce when entered into the takedown tools. Is that still needed / wanted?

jrbs added a comment to T209749: Allow privileged accounts to determine if an account has enrolled in 2FA.

@jrbs this specific task is only about the "allowing the community to check that an account really has enabled 2FA before granting it additional rights within the regular community process" part - so from a T&S point of view can it proceed (while not stopping any other types of improvement processes)?

Should I add trustandsafety@ as an alias for tsops@? Should I add pat, gary, box6699 for aliases to tsops@? Thanks.

@Cyberpower678 How did you confirm the account owner?

This is very odd and I see no reason why the password would suddenly stop working after a rename... I feel like it's more likely he just forgot it.

Could you ask them to email ca@wikimedia.org and we'll take it from there?

The user approached me via email and asked me to rename them to bring them in compliance with the username policy. Before proceeding, I asked them to login to their account and confirm the request by leaving a message on their talk page, which they did. So this is clearly not a case of forgotten password.

jrbs lowered the priority of T6845: CAPTCHA doesn't work for blind people from High to Normal.

I have corrected the priority to high. Obviously something that excludes such a large group of people needs to be fixed as a matter of priority. It shouldn’t be all that difficult to do a workaround such as MzMcbride suggested. If everyone who verifies an email address was exempted from such capchas then not only do we solve a major disability barrier, we also fix a problem that is a barrier for all new Wikipedians.

Lowering since the bit we can actually control has been done. :)

@Urbanecm This is now done, and a password reset has been issued through Special:PasswordReset. Hopefully that will allow him to log in.

I believe keeping RGB around was a compromise made by Comms when they did the redesign, so I don't think there is a plan to update community logos. Someone from WMF-Communications might have more information on that.
