On the beta Wikifunctions, an IP has apparently added a function for the sole purpose of vandalism. The function's name is 🙊, and its description is "testu testu." Please delete this function and all associated implementations and testers. Thank you.

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)

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

@Qgil-WMF, Krenair, Quiddity: Greetings Folks, I know you are not the people who do this but please pass this on to whomever at the WMF is.With the indef block I just received on commons for a minor comment (that is also directly related to my EnWP ban that should never have been allowed). Now that I am now indeffed/banned on 2 WMF projects, a 2 week block on Meta and an indef ban on IRC because I will not STFU and won't stop fighting my abusive ban on the English Wikipedia so I expect I will be globally blocked soon. Since the WMF does not have the moral courage to do anything about admin abuse on the projects like my bullshit ban just do the only thing you are willing to do with dedicated editors and just block my account now.I was a dedicated high output editor for years, amassed hundreds of thousands of edit, blah, blah, blah. I did a ton for these projects. More than nearly all of the important admins but no one cares because I am just an editor and the culture on these sites doesn't care about editors regardless of how much we do. Any admin can block any editor for any reason at all or in some cases no reason and the editor just has to take it because the WMF won't do anything.Rather than unban me so I can contribute and build an encyclopedia the WMF and the community would rather have abusive admins who violate policy and bully editors. That is not a project I want to be a part of and really no one else does either, which is why new editors aren't joining the few that are aren't staying and people are leaving in droves. If all the WMF cares about is gaining donation dollars and enabling an abusive admin culture then you are going to get what you deserve. A hostile and toxic work environment.Your code of conduct will never succeed in that environment since you don't have the desire to do anything about the problematic admins who are responsible for the decline of the sites.
