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)

When you blocked my second account, you used a hardblock. Could you change it to a softblock instead? I see no reason for disabling account creation. Thanks. – Ilovemydoodle2 (talk) 20:54, 26 July 2022 (UTC)

Also, could you make it more clear that it was done for technical reasons, not for any 'bad behavior'? – Ilovemydoodle2 (talk) 21:21, 26 July 2022 (UTC)

I would be sorry if such action broke some rule here, as I previously see this site not actually have a active page discussing bot tasks for approval. If some sort of discussion for the redirect-create task is need, I'm happy start another discussion in Project:Requests.

Overall most un-contiverstional requests are fine, but essentially sliding it in after the main request in what sort of looks like a comment to someone's support was not the best way forward.

Also the previous request was over 11 years old, Some considerations should be made before blinding performing old requests to see if the needs have changed over time and if its still needed. (In this case, our search system as vastly improved)

Such removal of permission is followed by an old tradition, like there's quite a lot of such action in Special:Log/rights.

P858snake (talkcontribs)

Those are mostly additions which is separate from removal, Overall Patrolled Edits is from my understanding a mostly unused feature on this wiki, I have opened a RfC to gather larger thoughts around this feature.

(Side note, You didn't need to create new topics on my talk page, Responding on yours would have pinged me with the new talk page tool)

Hi can you please remove protection from MediaWiki 1.17 this please. Because I doint think it needs to be protected any more nor do I think it is high Visable due to it no longer being supported. And it is not the latest Mediawiki version so please remove protection from it thanks.

Why does Extension:Inline SVG not solve security issues by do the same security checks as did in uploaded SVG files?

Noticed, that you have deleted my extension. The security risk with the extension is intentional! The extension is intentionally made to reveal user's email, so it is not possible to remove the security risk without rendering the extension pointless... Some wikis were using the extension and they need the (possibly updated) extension code to be available in order to restore their installations.

Hope to hear from you very soon as people are waiting! -- Joosep-Georg

Restored, I would also highly recommended getting the extension stored in our git repository if people actually have a desire to use it.

Joosep-Georg (talkcontribs)

Thanks! Have also made a request now for git access as you suggested.

I'm just testing stuff.

I also don't like LQT very much.
