How do I sign?

I have tried loading this page in both of my browsers: Opera 12 and Opera 55 as well as via mobile but I can't see where to sign. The 'submit' button is just text. Am I missing something? Xania (talk) 04:15, 18 January 2019 (UTC)

OTRS agreement

At the bottom of the text, a link is made to the "OTRS confidentiality agreement". Following that link leads to a statement that the OTRS agreement is withdrawn, apparently since 2015. Can somebody correct the link so it leads to the current OTRS agreement-if any exists? Thanks, Ellywa (talk) 22:28, 14 February 2020 (UTC)

I can't see any link to OTRS/Confidentiality agreement on this page. Stryn (talk) 07:42, 15 February 2020 (UTC)
I don't see such a link here either. Ellywa,
  • the Wikimedia Foundation requires OTRS volunteers to agree to, which is the OTRS version of (same content). This is the Confidentiality Agreement discussed in section 3(c) of the access to nonpublic personal data policy ("To ensure that community members with access rights understand and commit to keeping the Nonpublic Personal Data confidential, they will be required to read and certify that they agree to a short Confidentiality Agreement [...]"). OTRS access cannot be granted to volunteers unless they sign this agreement.
  • Meanwhile, OTRS/Confidentiality agreement was intended as an additional OTRS-specific agreement (hereinafter: the "volunteer agreement"), authored and to be enforced not by the Wikimedia Foundation but by the group of volunteers managing OTRS access rights (the OTRS administrators). It was withdrawn many years ago. The idea was that when signing the Wikimedia Foundation confidentiality agreement discussed in the preceding paragraph, OTRS agents would in addition be asked to state their agreement with the volunteer agreement ("By typing your name below, clicking the check box, and clicking the 'Sign Document' ('Sign Document') button below, you acknowledge that you have reviewed and agree both to this confidentiality agreement between you and the Wikimedia Foundation as well as the OTRS confidentiality agreement."). I'm not sure why this language is still in Confidentiality agreement for nonpublic information, which is supposed to be the "Wiki copy" of the Phabricator document (maybe that is where you saw it?). Either the Phabricator interface was changed at some point to reflect the withdrawal of the volunteer agreement and the Wiki page was not updated, or the Phabricator interface in fact still asks new volunteers for that. So something probably needs updating ... Materially, however, it makes no difference since, as I said, a separate volunteer agreement no longer exists.

Thank you for your explanation. I made a mistake, the link to the OTRS agreement I saw indeed on the page you mentioned: Confidentiality agreement for nonpublic information. Should that link be removed there?
Regarding the OTRS agreement, I was actually looking for my obligation, as an OTRS volunteer, to ensure all content I am uploading to Commons through the permission queues, or all content on Commons which I happen to see, is according to the copyright policies of Commons. I thought this obligation existed, and I wanted it to show it to somebody asking for my help. Ellywa (talk) 12:23, 16 February 2020 (UTC)

Signing Constraint

Who else has experienced this problem with signing the agreement in which the submit button is a text that literally cannot be clicked? I see Xania also experienced this problem & voiced out but did not receive a reply. This is a humble plea; please if you are reading this & are knowledgeable about this kind of problems what do you think could be the cause of this? I have used multiple browsers but the problem is still there. Could this be an overlooked error? Or are there pre-requisites one must attend to before signing this document?
