This task does not capture abuse cases. If you'd like us to build anti-abuse tools, please file a separate request describing the abuse you're seeing. See also T10215.

MZMcBride added a comment to T12157: Make it visibly clearer that a Phabricator user account has been disabled.

This task got cross-referenced with https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T115579. My impression of the Wikimedia Phabricator task was that we wanted a way for Phabricator admins to be able to edit the title of another user without needing to edit the database contents directly (cf. https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T115579#2973336). I'm not sure this task captures that request.

  • Did you notice that "Spanish (Spain)" was under the "Limited Translations" heading, instead of the "Translations" heading?

It looks like T10814, specifically T10814#170824, provide some useful info. Thank you for that link!

The current status is the infrastructure is provided, but the translations are not (you need to either translate it yourself, or check the community wiki page here for community contributed translations). Then install said translations locally.

I'd like to get this task un-stuck. I'm unclear on Phabricator's current internationalization capabilities.

We have no precedents of abuse in Phabricator so far, but looking at our history with Bugzilla I will not be surprised the morning we find a first precedent.

^ I am incredibly jealous of your perspective and am really, really surprised you haven't had this problem yet!

MZMcBride added a comment to T6502: Policy to define who can move cards in a workboard.

On the Wikimedia side, looking at https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T1178, I see almost no support or consensus for this feature. Restricting open editing is in some ways antithetical to Wikimedia's values (we try to be as open as possible) and there are a lot of other issues with Phabricator that are higher priority for us.

MZMcBride added a comment to T7073: The meaning of the login icon is not clear.

I find this type of hasty task closure really off-putting and inappropriate. There are many parts of Phabricator and Phabricator development that I like, but this issue tracker is a little toxic.

In T5358#102327, @qgil wrote:

We are requesting a setting to allow our admins to disable Self Actions by default in our instance, because we know our community and this is what they are clearly asking for.

Linking this request to T4103 is conceptually correct, but here we are talking about a single system-wide binary setting that could be defined from the Configuration backend without any UI changes. T4103 encompasses a collection of rather rich features that will take a long time to start and complete, and that is currently prioritized as Wishlist. Maybe this was a way to say yes, but is pretty close to a no. :)

How about changing the entire product to default to not sending any email?

This issue is especially painful if users treat Phabricator Maniphest task descriptions as a drafting area. (Wikimedia migrated from Bugzilla, which had non-editable bug descriptions. Users have started to adapt to Phabricator's more open nature.)

I'm politely requesting a reconsideration of this ticket as I filed a similar task at https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T914 and was pointed here.
