A barnstar for you!

Suggestion

I have a suggestion, that perhaps on blog.wikimedia.org or here on this site you give full-written instructions on adding, and changing MediaWiki software via your site. I am also wondering what User Rights come by Default of MediaWiki? Thanks Superdadsuper (talk) 01:46, 9 March 2013 (UTC)

How we will see unregistered users

MediaWiki message delivery (talkcontribs)

Hi!

You get this message because you are an admin on a Wikimedia wiki.

When someone edits a Wikimedia wiki without being logged in today, we show their IP address. As you may already know, we will not be able to do this in the future. This is a decision by the Wikimedia Foundation Legal department, because norms and regulations for privacy online have changed.

Instead of the IP we will show a masked identity. You as an admin will still be able to access the IP. There will also be a new user right for those who need to see the full IPs of unregistered users to fight vandalism, harassment and spam without being admins. Patrollers will also see part of the IP even without this user right. We are also working on better tools to help.

If you have not seen it before, you can read more on Meta. If you want to make sure you don’t miss technical changes on the Wikimedia wikis, you can subscribe to the weekly technical newsletter.

We have two suggested ways this identity could work. We would appreciate your feedback on which way you think would work best for you and your wiki, now and in the future. You can let us know on the talk page. You can write in your language. The suggestions were posted in October and we will decide after 17 January.

Thank you. /Johan (WMF)

Hi. I noticed that you are listed as an OAuth administrator here, but that group was migrated to meta wiki, and no longer has any user rights associated with it here. Any objections to removal? Thanks, --DannyS712 (talk) 05:46, 19 December 2019 (UTC)

ConfirmAccount account confirmation emails

Chadberg (talkcontribs)

I'd like to customize the email sent when an account is confirmed. I'dve thought that would be the confirmaccount-email-body and related System Messages text strings. The corresponding requestaccount text is used as expected. However, what I see sent by email is the text from createaccount-text. I can modify the sent message there, but wonder if I've missed a step in doing it the right way. Thanks for any insights.

ConfirmAccount new user welcome message?

DrinkBoy (talkcontribs)

Aaron, pardon me if this isn't the right way to deal with this. I "just" created a MediaWiki site, and your extension has been the first one I've installed so far.

I noticed that after installing your extension, a "user talk" message is posted to the users that I confirm. It is along the lines of:


"Welcome to Chanticleer Society! We hope you will contribute much and well. You will probably want to read the help pages. Again, welcome and have fun! DrinkBoy"


I've tried searching through MediaWiki, as well as various settings on my site and can't find out where this is coming from? I would like to change it to better reflect some of the duties, responsibilities, and suggested activities for new users.

Is this something your extension is doing? If so, how do I change it, if not, do you have any hints on how I might be able to find it?

Thanks

-Robert

Robert, This is found in the SystemMessages area, and if you go into Special Pages and into the System Messages, and look through you'll find this text and can edit it.

Optimizing a 16gig database

I have no idea on how to do this.

How much would you charge me to optimize this large database?

Hi Aaron,

I am a new admin to wiki for my company. We currently use the FlaggedRevs extension for pages in certain categories that the powers that be want to be reviewed before changes are made public. I've recently received a request to set up groups of reviewers that are restricted to reviewing only certain categories of pages. My understanding of the extension is that you set people up with the 'reviewer' permission and they can review all categories of pages, so it's an 'all or nothing' situation. Is that correct, or is there a way to set people up with reviewer/approver permission to only certain categories?

Thank you in advance!

-Kris
