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)

Button color/class and new section heading

I'd like to propose two new functions to Extension:InputBox. The first is a button color/class option. E.g. green button could be managed by "buttoncolor=green" or by 'buttonclass=mw-ui-progressive". The second is the level of the new section heading. E.g. 3rd heading could be managed by "headinglevel=3" What do you think? Could they be added?
