In the meanwhile, I've updated the page. Don't hesitate to tell me if I've missed something.
I'm not super attached to getting that back, so I'd be fine with making a new account tbh. Assuming I can DM one of y'all. It's not super urgent or anything.
Also, thank you so much! It looks like you got everything.

But for some more complex tasks, there's no MediaWiki interface at all and one needs to directly access the SQL database, and I believe only Rachael and Marisa Heit can do that. I know I don't have that access.
Yeah, that makes sense. I handle the MediaWiki install for another thing so I'm used to the various granular permissions. Also, the absolute hell that is updating MediaWiki installs, lol.
Again, thank you so much for the response! Really appreciate it!
