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)

Nuke of incorrect translations 2

Summary by Renvoy

Pages were deleted.

Renvoy (talkcontribs)

Hi! Seems like I have checked almost every edit by DDPAT 2.0 and fixed what I could. This is the last pile of articles to be deleted due to bad machine translations/too complicated topics: 1, 2, 3, 4. Thanks for your help.

Pppery (talkcontribs)

Yes Done

Nuke of incorrect translations

Summary by DDPAT 2.0

Pages deleted

Renvoy (talkcontribs)

Hello! I am sure that you are familiar with this situation. As a lot of users contributions are complete nonsense, is there possibility to nuke, at least, translations of some pages? For example, this page, should be deleted entirely imho.

DDPAT 2.0 (talkcontribs)

Can still humiliate? If you do not want to correct, it does not mean that you can be so humiliated.

Pppery (talkcontribs)

I've deleted the page. And, DDPAT 2.0, I'm completely failing to understand you. If you are talking to me, then this has nothing to do with me being humiliated, and if you are talking to Renvoy, then please take this arguing somewhere other than my talk page.

DDPAT 2.0 (talkcontribs)

Yes, sorry, my message was addressed to Renvoy.

Renvoy (talkcontribs)

@Pppery, it would be great if this, this, this, this and this pages got nuked. Up to 90% of content of these pages should be corrected and topics are too complicated. Thanks.

DDPAT 2.0 (talkcontribs)

Renvoy, enough to do amateur activities. Someone will find it and fix it.

And there is no need to talk about the number of Ukrainian editors.

Pppery (talkcontribs)

I've deleted those pages.

Automatic download extension.json by template ExtensionParametr

Want (talkcontribs)

Template Template:Extension do automatically load data from extension.json file. But what when is code new version in another branch? It is i.e. branch form-support of the Extension:AccessControl. This code is actualized up MediaWiki main branch, but code main branch of the extension was developed from my old obsolete version. Every not use accesslists based on template parameters for it I do extra branch, but users don't know because template not download extension.json from it.

Hi! Module:Extension currently answers only if the value of |needs-updatephp= parameter in {{Extension}} is yes, with a comment that it’s unclear whether “no” needs to be explicitly stated. Despite of this uncertainty, you removed |needs-updatephp=No for example here and here with the edit comment “now loaded from extension.json”. While this is certainly not true in this form, I wonder if there has been a discussion deciding on removing such parameters in the meantime. If there was (where?), it should be reflected in the module comment and your edit comments; if there wasn’t, why do you remove the parameters?

Pppery (talkcontribs)

The current situation "certain extensions explicitly specify they don't need update.php to be run, whereas others do not" is clearly undesirable. I personally don't see the point of setting it to no; running update.php unnecessarily does no harm, and I suspect if a page is silent on whether it should be run, the typical uninformed user would not run it.

I believe I must have incorrectly interpreted that comment to mean that needs-updatephp=no is not supported at all, rather than not automatically specified. Either way, it should be auto-filled or not supported by the template at all (and I'm not aware of any discussion), rather than implemented ad hoc; the entire point of my edits was to avoid ad hoc duplication of data.
