EnhanceContactForm is a MediaWiki extension that hooks into Special:Contact and sends more information about the sender to the recipient of the contact emails. This information includes:

  • the URL of the wiki ($wgServer)
  • the name of the wiki's database ($wgDBname)
  • reporter's IP address (regardless of whether they checked the "Include my IP address in this message" checkbox or not)
  • reporter's browser
  • reporter's operating system
  • reporter's skin
  • reporter's User-Agent string

The extension was written by Jack Phoenix for ShoutWiki.
