I do not know what you are talking about.
How we will see unregistered users
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.
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)

Not sure if you're the right person to ask for wikiapiry questions, but here goes.
I noticed that https://wikiapiary.com/wiki/Extension:QuickInstantCommons says the page will be autocreated by a bot when the extension gets used by someone, however, https://wikiapiary.com/wiki/Special:WhatLinksHere/Extension:QuickInstantCommons indicates that it already is, but it looks like the bot is not creating the page.
I am the right person... even if I'm slow. Could you file a bug on github?
[WMF Board of Trustees - Call for feedback: Community Board seats] Meetings with MediaWiki and Wikitech communities
The Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees is organizing a call for feedback about community selection processes between February 1 and March 14. While the Wikimedia Foundation and the movement have grown about five times in the past ten years, the Board’s structure and processes have remained basically the same. As the Board is designed today, we have a problem of capacity, performance, and lack of representation of the movement’s diversity. Our current processes to select individual volunteer and affiliate seats have some limitations. Direct elections tend to favor candidates from the leading language communities, regardless of how relevant their skills and experience might be in serving as a Board member, or contributing to the ability of the Board to perform its specific responsibilities. It is also a fact that the current processes have favored volunteers from North America and Western Europe. In the upcoming months, we need to renew three community seats and appoint three more community members in the new seats. This call for feedback is to see what processes can we all collaboratively design to promote and choose candidates that represent our movement and are prepared with the experience, skills, and insight to perform as trustees?
In this regard, two rounds of feedback meetings are being hosted to collect feedback from the technical communities in Wikimedia. Two rounds are being hosted with the same agenda, to accomodate people from various time zones across the globe. We will be discussing ideas proposed by the Board and the community to address the above mentioned problems. Please sign-up according to whatever is most comfortable to you. You are welcome to participate in both as well!
- Round 1 - Feb 25, 4:00 pm UTC
- Round 2 - Mar 4, 4:00 am UTC
- Sign-up and meeting details: Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees/Call for feedback: Community Board seats/Conversations/MediaWiki and Wikitech
Also, please share this with other volunteers who might be interested in this. Let me know if you have any questions.

Help with pywikibot imports
Hi, I was planning on using pywikibot to import an XML dump of Wikipedia articles to another Wiki, but I wasn't able to understand the instructions. If you could walk me through it, I would appreciate it:
I'm not a pywikibot expert. Those instructions would be new to me, as well. But if you're trying to import a dump, you don't need pywikibot. See Manual:FAQ#How do I install an existing wiki, like Wikipedia or Wiktionary?
I've looked at several options, can you recommend the easiest one?
The easiest, but not the fastest, is MediaWiki's Special:Import page. Then there is the importDump.php script. I've used mwdumper, but it isn't being maintained any more.
So, it looks like pywikibot is your best choice. I can only offer that someone in this chat room might be able to help.
Now I have the following problem: I have the Near Near feature, i.e. GeoData. I have written Geodata nearby and true position LocalSettings.php together and came to my wiki nearby function. But now when the king "show nearby articles," it says, "There's a problem with Nearby. Try updating the location." What to do?
