Where is the discussion where you came to the decision to indefinitely block MZMcBride. I'd like to read over your reasoning that can explain this drastic move that has repercussions to other projects. Thank you.
About this board
This is a talk page of a role account operated by the technical Code of Conduct Committee.
In case you wish to contact the committee, please use email@example.com. This talk page is not actively monitored.
I am also curious to see the consensus discussion that led to this block, along with the exact scope of the block and the diffs that were provided as evidence in the discussion.
The block description is "Verdict of the Code of Conduct Committee: MZMcBride is indefinitely banned from all Wikimedia technical spaces", which is pretty vague. Thanks in advance for providing a link.
The discussion about this is happening in Topic:X4tzi55ouamc3y6m
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)

I rewrote the article and cut out as much "fluff" as I could, and now it is disallowing me to post because and I am getting the code " new user youtube, &c" Please help!
Hello. You can get help for this kind of things directly on the Wikimedia project you edited. For example for the English Wikinews, you can ask community assistance at https://en.wikinews.org/wiki/Wikinews:Water_cooler
