How we will see unregistered users

MediaWiki message delivery (talkcontribs)


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)

Beta Cluster puppet configuration

MarcoAurelio (talkcontribs)

Hello Greg. I've been looking here and there and I cannot see where I could configure a cron'd maintenance script to run on the Beta Cluster. The script I'd like to run daily is this one, which is needed to comply with our privacy policy. Any hints or ideas would be welcome. Thanks for your help. Best regards.

Best place to ask this question is on a Beta Cluster talk page (wikitech's probably) or in a Phab task :) I'll poke and get back to you.

Beta Cluster puppet maintenance

MarcoAurelio (talkcontribs)

Hello again Greg. I've been talking with @Krenair yesterday after shinken-wm got crazy on -releng with lots of beta cluster puppet issues. He told me that he currently has no time to take care of that and that it'd be good if it could be taken care of by someone or some more people on a constant/daily basis. Do you think you can raise the issue on the appropriate venues so we have proper puppet maintenance on the Beta Cluster as well? Thanks. Best regards.

Greg (WMF) (talkcontribs)

Yes, on the backlog of topics to discuss more formally :)

Please provide feedback on suggested improvements to the Code of Conduct

MediaWiki message delivery (talkcontribs)

Thanks to everyone who’s helped work on the Code of Conduct so far.

People have brought up issues they feel were missed when working on "Unacceptable behavior" and "Report a problem". Consultants have also suggested changes in these same sections.

These are important sections, so please take a look at the proposed changes. I apologize that this feedback arrived later than planned, but I think this will create a better document.

If you prefer to give your opinion privately, feedback via e-mail is welcome at conduct-discussionwikimedia.org.

Thanks. Mattflaschen-WMF via
