How do you provide contact and identification information now? I remember used to you could send a copy of an ID. Thanks. Bobherry (talk) 13:47, 23 October 2017 (UTC) {{helpme}}

No, that is not needed now. For example as an OTRS member (now former) at the moment when I became one I just needed to email my name and whether I am a major, and when the new policy was put in place I had to sign phab:L4 and phab:L32 and that's it, the action on Phab was all I needed. I believe nothing has changed since (at least not as of May when I still had OTRS access). --Base (talk) 10:50, 25 October 2017 (UTC)
@Base: Thanks. I signed phab:L4 the other day and I am just waiting for it to go through. I am working to get on the request an account team. Thanks again. Bobherry (talk) 13:33, 25 October 2017 (UTC)


The big blue box at the start of the page says "Provide contact and identification information", and links to a section titled "Identification", but that section does not exist. Does an identification requirement currently exist for holding advanced permissions? If so, it isn't enforced. Can this wording be changed or removed? – Ajraddatz (talk) 08:34, 12 November 2017 (UTC)

See Talk:Access to nonpublic information policy/Noticeboard#Identification. From what I understand, you sign your name and then are added to the noticeboard. No additional identification is required. Would be great to hear confirmation. --Eurodyne (talk) 08:53, 12 November 2017 (UTC)
Ah yes. Incidentally enough, I came here after noticing out of date text on enwiki regarding identification. But when I go here, I found that the outdated text remains here as well. Hopefully the WMF can clarify a bit! – Ajraddatz (talk) 09:24, 12 November 2017 (UTC)
