Produced a fairly basic special page prototype. Job needs fleshing out and form needs validation.

Currently being used on Brickipedia with no issues. Hope to roll out globally soon.
StaffWiki now done.
Certificates expired for *.shoutwiki.com.

So I'm going to target this for February 2018... it'll give us a bit of prep time after LetsEncrypt launches wildcard certificates in January.
I'm going to go as far as to say I can't see us supporting this extension any time in the next 12 months. I'm almost tempted to go further, but who knows. A few months ago, I would have said the same thing about Echo.

So the idea, other than just providing the deletion log if a wiki was deleted, is to provide something along the lines of the old Wikia home page with image links to related and big wikis.
So NoSuchWiki no longer uses HTTP_REFERER as browsers don't set this often enough for this to be reliable.

Looks very useful. Might try and get this out soon.

Isn't there already a task to rewrite CreateWiki's backend?
The fix is to stop using HTTPS. I know, it sucks, but it's unsupported for a very good reason at the moment, and it'll stop working when our current certificate expires in about two months time.

This is actually a good request we hear quite a lot.
Within certain parameters, yes. Email email@example.com. This isn't a bug, and it is a widely known fact.
Oh, really? I was under the impression we get CPM as well as CPC bids on our ad units. But then again, what do I know? I'm only the person with the access to the data.
Yes, there are security and/or privacy issues. The applicable part here being "privacy issues". Which is why only staff can use these tools to enable us to do our jobs. We take privacy seriously, and these tools are not used unless it is necessary. LookupUser was originally written by one of the key MediaWiki developers, who is currently employed by the Wikimedia Foundation, so will have been written with security and privacy concerns in mind.
There's a reason a number of extensions in the repository are unused. For Configure it's a case of "works okay for one wiki, not 8800+."

Based on the fact that patch was filed... over half a year ago, we can safely assume it's been deployed. Can we close this as resolved?
Mar 27 2017
Should be fixed?

I think this was resolved with T180 and various other changes.

So after more reports of session issues this morning, I've put sessions in Redis for now.

While having this page available in as many languages would be nice, I'm not really sure if it's feasible.
Thinking about it, we could do with a better 404 and 403 error page.
