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 Jacques55 2006-10-14 03:05:55 UTC
When going to the above page, I get this message:

"You are not authorized to view this page 
You might not have permission to view this directory or page using the credentials you 


"If you believe you should be able to view this directory or page, please try to contact 
the Web site by using any e-mail address or phone number that may be listed on the home page.

"You can click  Search to look for information on the Internet.

"HTTP Error 403 - Forbidden 
Internet Explorer"

I've tried to load it using both my work and home computers. My home computer runs  
Windows XP, and my work computer runs Windows 2000. I also tried using Opera at home. I 
asked about it at "Wikipedia: Village pump (technical)," and Shardsofmetal replied that 
it wasn't working for him, either.

Stats are offline for the moment pending resolution of a privacy issue.
Comment 2 Jacques55 2006-11-12 07:46:43 UTC
What do you mean? Also, when will they will go back up again?
Comment 3 Rob Church 2006-11-12 08:33:33 UTC
1. A privacy issue has occurred, cue the legal fanfares. I'm not aware of what 
happened, but I'm guessing the statistics generator included some information that 
shouldn't be made public. Obviously, this becomes one of those hideous little legal 
issues we have to tiptoe around, and the statistics were taken offline to prevent 
anyone getting at that information.

2. The statistics will be made available again when (a) any personal information or 
similar is no longer available there and (b) when the scripts and tools are modified 
such that they won't be re-generating this.

[mass-moving wikistats reports from Wikimedia→Statistics to Analytics→Wikistats to have stats issues under one Bugzilla product (see bug 42088) - sorry for the bugspam!]
