Description Sage Ross 2011-06-01 18:04:02 UTC
I was trying to create a custom account creation system to link up to the APS Wikipedia Initiative:

I created three customized pages:

The first two work, replacing the normal "MediaWiki:Welcomecreation" and "MediaWiki:Signupend" messages.  But the third does not affect the message that is normally at "MediaWiki:Fancycaptcha-createaccount".

Also, it would be helpful to have a list of *all* the messages that can be customized through this extension.

I've had similar problems for creating a new Account Creation process:
and several more

The extension is called

I have been likewise unable to get the extension to work the way it is supposed to, with assigning you to a random "bucket".

This bug has not been touched in at least six months. With this in mind, I've been asked by the bugmeister to bump this bug's priority down for "High". Concerns can be addressed to
Comment 3 Sage Ross 2013-02-11 19:37:44 UTC
Extension is no longer deployed and the old signup system is now obsolete, so I'm marking it Invalid.
Comment 4 Andre Klapper 2013-02-12 10:37:09 UTC
Sage: Thanks for the info.
Not being deployed on WMF wikis doesn't mean the bug report itself is invalid. +1 in case the extension is also not *developed* anymore, but that would also require
* closing this Bugzilla component for new bug entry
* closing all other (2) open tickets as INVALID/WONTFIX.
I'm happy to do so if you could confirm (in case you know).

(Plus I've removed {{OnWikimedia}} from as it's not deployed anymore on WM servers).
