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)

Fehler bei Help:CirrusSearch

Summary by Speravir

O, hat sich erledigt. CKoerner von der WMF hat sich der Sache angenommen.

Stunden später: Schade, doch nicht.

Nun aber doch, nachdem ein bot die nötigen Änderungen vollzogen hat.

Die Änderung muss wohl noch in irgendeiner Form für die anderen Sprachen freigeschaltet werden, so dass die Angelegenheit doch noch nicht erledigt ist.

Nachtrag: Aha, ein Bot wird nach einiger Zeit tätig.

can you revert some of the page moves by User:Elitenova? He had moved a few pages as well as move a person's talk page onto his userpage. Thanks.

Pywikibot page for translation

user:Fabsouza1 has marked Manual:Pywikibot/Windows and Manual:Pywikibot/pagegenerators.py for translation, so I guess that translation admins automatically find these pages when translation tags are added to them. yay.

However pywikobot has lots of pages which have translations using the old system, and the help pages have scary warnings about those, so I dont feel comfortable touching them without some guidance.
