Before blocking my account: if you're blocking me for edits with summaries containing (Script), just tell me to slow down at c:User talk:-revi instead. Those are automated script edits for Commons' filemove system.
Please leave your message at one of the following sites:
d:User talk:-revi for Wikidata/interwikilinks stuff (I'm one of the Administrators there);
commons:User talk:-revi for renaming stuff or CommonsDelinker actions (I'm one of the Administrators there);
How we will see unregistered users[edit source]
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)
