question about the discussion you closed on wikiversity[edit source]

Hi DannyS712 I happened to notice that a discussion you had closed on 25 February 2021 is still active with new comments posted today.

I am just curious why the people who are still posting are not threatened with a block just like I was. Is it because the rules on this wiki are different than the rules on Wikiquote, or is it because the posters are not automatically suspect like me.

I am not trolling nor being confrontational. I truly would be interested In finding out. I realize you are busy and don't mind waiting for an answer whenever you get a chance. If you forgot the incident I am talking about I would gladly provide a diff. Thanks in advance, Ottawahitech (discusscontribs) 19:32, 30 November 2021 (UTC)[reply]

How we will see unregistered users[edit source]

Hi!

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)
