Is there a complete list of Wikimedia fork differences from the upstream Phabricator? If it is, I'd like to see it.

Hello! I am trying to upload a gif in a phabricator task comment and receiving an error.

- I click on the upload icon

- I select my gif file (5,2MB)

- It starts uploading with the percentage reaching 100%

- Then it shows the following message:

Upload error

Exception: No configured storage engine can store this file. See "Configuring File Storage" in the documentation for information on configuring storage engines.


Here is a link to a screenshot.

Summary by G(x)

Intended name not supported by the system. Request withdrawn and marked as resolved.

G(x) (talkcontribs)

Hello. Following the return of my use of the most established username, I would like to rename myself in Phabricator to be in consistent with my unified account. Therefore:

Please rename the user "Vg_thWIKI" to "G(x)"

Thank you for your help.

AKlapper (WMF) (talkcontribs)

Hi, your preferred name is not supported by Phabricator: Usernames must contain only numbers, Latin letters, period, underscore and hyphen, and can not end with a period. They must have no more than 64 characters. Spaces should be replaced with an underscore (_).

A small language related doubt

I have recently posted a comment in one of the tasks in phab. In the task T220272, i searched for getting some thumbs up like symbol. But unfortunately I ended up with memes. I actually doesn't know what memes is. Now comes my real doubt. Please reproduce the following steps:

1)Just click on the last icon named meme which is present in the toolbar of adding comments in a task.

2)Now, you will be able to see a box with three fields. My doubt is, why does the translation of the text Llama Diorama not happening even when I have selected my language as English (United States).

AKlapper (WMF) (talkcontribs)

Because "Llama Diorama" is the string in English. :) Memes are not to be taken very seriously.

If you for some reason are looking for a thumbs-up symbol, "Award token" might be what you're looking for.

Hi, my profile (https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/p/RheingoldRiver/) currently looks like this: https://puu.sh/BriD2.png. I think it's because I have two external accounts linked because I temporarily didn't have access to this login at the time I made the account. When I searched the bug it seemed like an administrator would have to fix that for me, is this the right place to ask for help? Or if not, where should I? Thanks!

AKlapper (WMF) (talkcontribs)

That looks like https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T75720. Assuming that you can log into Phab, could you file a ticket on phabricator.wikimedia.org in the Phabricator project and mention T75720? Thanks!

RheingoldRiver (talkcontribs)

Done, hopefully I put it in the right place. Thanks!

RheingoldRiver (talkcontribs)

I think I may have done this in the wrong place, can you link me to the right place to open this as an issue?

AKlapper (WMF) (talkcontribs)
RheingoldRiver (talkcontribs)

Okay, tried again. Sorry for the trouble, and thanks!

Is it allowed to talk non-wikipedia development topic in Phabricator?

Summary by AKlapper (WMF)

Covered in phab:T215688

Zoglun (talkcontribs)

We (Moegirlpedia) would like to use Phabricator to track our MediaWiki development progress. But not all the needs related to Mediawiki/Wikipeida.

Jira is a good choice for software development too, but it's private oriented design and price are problem.


Can we use Phabricator to track non-Wikipedia development project?

AKlapper (WMF) (talkcontribs)

The Wikimedia instance of Phabricator is meant for any Wikimedia-related activity so I'm afraid this is out of scope. Though I am curious what "your MW development process" implies - would that be relevant to upstream?

AKlapper (WMF) (talkcontribs)

Maybe I misunderstood - if this is not about tracking all your tasks in a dedicated project but about tagging some tasks of interest for you, then this is totally fine. Is this the same as phab:T215688 ?

Summary by AKlapper (WMF)

Herald has always been a restricted app, not "now" only. See mw:Phabricator/Help/Herald Rules for more info.

Wargo (talkcontribs)

Why Herald is now restricted app?

Jdforrester (WMF) (talkcontribs)

It always has been. The potential for abuse is very high, and "normal" use slows down the system for every other user, so needs to be limited.

Wargo (talkcontribs)

What are story points?
