oauth app

Hi there. Thanks for approving my Oauth app. But how do I change the callback URL? I thought I would e able to do that once it's approved, but it seems that I can't. Computer Fizz (talk) 06:43, 14 February 2020 (UTC)

@Computer Fizz: The only things about a MediaWiki OAuth consumer grant that can be changed after approval are the IP range and consumer secret. When requesting a grant you can select the 'Allow consumer to specify a callback in requests and use "callback" URL above as a required prefix.' option if desired. This will allow you some control over the callback URL right hand side following a required prefix. --BDavis (WMF) (talk) 14:45, 14 February 2020 (UTC)
I really do not like that system at all. There should always be a way to change stuff like that, especially when it's already been around for months, approved and everything with too much hassle to recreate. In this particular case, I was able to redirect my callback URL to my new URL, but this feature should still be added for other people. Computer Fizz (talk) 23:03, 14 February 2020 (UTC)
@Computer Fizz: I am not now nor have I ever been the Product Manager or an official maintainer of the MediaWiki OAuth software. Feel free to look at the backlog of tasks at phab:tag/mediawiki-extensions-oauth and either add your comments to a relevant task there or create a new one. --BDavis (WMF) (talk) 19:12, 18 February 2020 (UTC)

Page pile tool hasn't been working for a while

I'm reffering to this one. I've tried to use it from two different computers but always get this "Not Found" page. Is it just me or is this an ongoing issues that hasn't been resolved for a while? (I'm contacting you about this because the error message mentions contacting the project administrators and mentions you). ויקיג'אנקי (talk) 11:29, 27 March 2020 (UTC)

Toolforge password recovery needed

Hello, I'm Gomdoli4696. I lost my toolforge account password. What should I do? thanks. — Gomdoli4696 (토론) 03:35, 14 July 2020 (UTC)

Gomdoli4696, your mw:Developer account needs to be attached on wikitech: so that you can use wikitech:Special:PasswordReset to change your lost password (phab:T174469). I ran the maintenance script for this and forced attachment of the account [1]. You should be able to use the normal MediaWiki password reset mechanism now. --BDavis (WMF) (talk) 16:39, 14 July 2020 (UTC)
I found the password for my account. thank you. — Gomdoli4696 (토론) 22:43, 14 July 2020 (UTC)

Rights like "Access two-factor authentication (OATH) information for self and others" and "Access checkuser data" are hardly ever approved.) 8 octobre 2020 à 16:48 Psemdel a proposé un consommateur OAuth (clé du consommateur efd47073a9f944ab8bb72fd77e2698a0) (Cycling-init-bot, je teste l'OAuth)

A big SORRY for that! Psemdel (talk) 18:24, 8 October 2020 (UTC)

Sorry again, I forgot to check "Allow consumer to specify a callback in requests and use "callback" URL above as a required prefix." in my last OAuth request... Can you edit it, or I make a new request (4th...) Psemdel (talk) 11:51, 14 October 2020 (UTC)

@Psemdel:: You will have to make a new grant request. --BDavis (WMF) (talk) 17:22, 14 October 2020 (UTC)
How to delete the old one, I see no button. Psemdel (talk) 07:21, 17 October 2020 (UTC)
