Wikimedia Bugzilla is closed!

Wikimedia has migrated from Bugzilla to Phabricator. Bug reports should be created and updated in Wikimedia Phabricator instead. Please create an account in Phabricator and add your Bugzilla email address to it.
Wikimedia Bugzilla is read-only. If you try to edit or create any bug report in Bugzilla you will be shown an intentional error message.
In order to access the Phabricator task corresponding to a Bugzilla report, just remove "static-" from its URL.
You could still run searches in Bugzilla or access your list of votes but bug reports will obviously not be up-to-date in Bugzilla.

Description Jim Sibigtroth 2007-08-18 03:56:52 UTC
Attempt to logon as JimSib - I get-
"Login error:There is no user by the name "JimSib". Check your spelling, or create a new account.",
This account is only a few days old. Helpers in IRC can see my username. I understand case sensitivity, cookies are enabled.
Helpers suggested this might be related to a recent server crash. They requested that I enter this bug report.

There doesn't appear to be a user account named "JimSib" on Meta; it doesn't show up in the user list, and doesn't contain the toolbox links which would indicate that the account exists.

Since this is a recent creation, it would also show up in the New User Log, and it doesn't. You're sure the account was created on Meta? [Pending the resolution of bug 59, accounts are not global across Wikimedia wikis.]

Just for the cross reference to be correct for the original poster, it's bug 57.
