Hello! Happy new year. I hope that this message finds you well. I am about to start the first admin activity review round based on the August RfC. I'll post the list at Project:Current issues and on each affected admin talk page. While we've reviewed the list a couple of times to ensure there's no mistakes, we've identified that a couple of tools seem to be lagging behind (or the replicas). Best regards.

First admin activity review
You have a new email!
Please check your email box.
I received your email but have some questions; you seem to already have an account here. Which wiki are you asking about?
I`m sorry,I mean your test wiki.
Put GTag on gerrit?
I was wondering if you'd be open to creating a gerrit repo for GTag? That way you would get automatic access to updates and other things.
I'm not interested in putting anything on Gerrit for the time being. The upsides are not worth the downsides in my opinion (that is: lack of ultimate control over what does/doesn't get merged in and the fact Gerrit itself is a gigantic pain in the rear to work with).
I may re-evaluate when/if GitLab happens, but even then the control issue still exists. I have had issues in the past where well-meaning contributors break the compatibility policy with their updates or just outright break the extension in general due to not understanding what it does (and not testing), and someone else who similarly has no understanding and didn't do any testing +2's it.
Understood. I just discovered this and deployed it so I thought I'd ask.
"mdwiki" is not approved as a Connected App. Contact the application author for help.--~~~~
The OAuth application has not yet been approved yet, please give it a few days. Was just approved actually, so should work now.
MW 1.33 was released and I was wondering if you can update it? I would like access to the partial blocks feature so I can test it.
(unrelated) can you also change my username on the test wiki? Thanks.
Getting it updated to 1.33 is on my todo list. To request a rename, please request on my talk page on TheTestWiki itself.
500 Internal Server Error
No longer having that issue
Sorry about the thank that I gave you accidentally. My fingers slipped. I am not getting any error on test wiki by the way.
Just to confirm, we are both talking about https://thetestwiki.org/, are we?
I thought you were talking about test.wikipedia.org. Sorry for wasting your time.
Cannot access TheTestWiki without VPN
Can you see if any IP addresses that look like 99.9.xx.xx have been blocked from the entire site recently? (Not blocked from editing, blocked from viewing the entire site.) Can you also check for 403 errors?
Using 2.3.1 (eb18c26) 14:36, 15 March 2019 on MediaWIki 1.33, Centos 7
When Executing any script from the Maintenance page I get
HTTP 500 error
That’s odd... the website can’t display this page
I don't see any required dependencies, any reason why it fails.
I do not maintain that extension anymore, so it is possible that it is no longer compatible with recent MediaWiki versions. As I am not involved with the extension anymore, I'm not going to devote any time to helping you find or fix any issues. Look at blank page for general troubleshooting tips.
External image whitelist disabled
You edited MediaWiki:External image whitelist and Manual:$wgAllowExternalImages#Example in 2011. The example image is currently not shown. Manual:$wgEnableImageWhitelist says Default value true (prior to 1.32) false (1.32+). According to MediaWiki 1.33/wmf.2#Core changes it actually changed in 1.33.0-wmf.2. MediaWiki 1.33/Roadmap says it was deployed Tuesday, 30 October 2018. https://web.archive.org/web/*/https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Manual:$wgAllowExternalImages confirms the image disappeared somewhere between 17 August 2018 and 22 January 2019, the closest snapshots to 30 October 2018.
It's a wiki, please feel free to edit the pages to clarify the correct versions and other details :)
Fixed in v1.2.0
Is there any chance you'd be willing to address the behavior I documented here? I think I'd prefer it just be removed, but having it put behind a configuration variable would be fine too.
I undid your edit; extension pages are not the place to report bugs. The place to do that is Phabricator. In your report, add "MediaWiki-extensions-MediaWikiAuth" to the Tags field.
In your report, please be as detailed as possible. Are the fields missing? Are they disabled so they can't be edited? Can they be edited but saving them doesn't seem to work?
I had assumed the behavior was intentional, not a bug. If I'd thought otherwise, then I would have filed a ticket, yes. I've filed a ticket at phab:T196482.
Fair enough. In the future, the intent of MWA is that after your account is imported it gets out of the way and leaves you alone. So, if it seems to be having any effect on your account after the import is complete, that is not intentional and most likely a bug.
I'll definitely remember that; thanks for confirming it. =)
