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)

Thank you for creating Extension:SyntaxHighlight. I wondered who made this. It's very useful when I write codes. :) Have a nice day!

SVGEdit in MediaWiki 1.31

1 (talkcontribs)

Hi Brion, I've tried to use your extension SVGEdit under the latest stable MediaWiki and I'm struggling with it. Even I've downloaded the latest version (master) from (/wikimedia/mediawiki-extensions-SVGEdit) there is an error thrown in javascript when clicking "Edit drawing" for valid SVG file:

TypeError: mwSVG is undefined

There are shown some warning as well, but I expect that they are not rootcause of the issue: This page is using the deprecated ResourceLoader module "jquery.ui.widget". load.php:31:942 This page is using the deprecated ResourceLoader module "jquery.ui.core". Please use OOUI instead.

Do you have an idea why this is happening? Thanks.

Regarding Manual:32-bit, on the windows download page for PHP, the official page it is noted that

The x64 builds of PHP 5 for Windows are experimental, and do not provide 64-bit integer or large file support.

Pop up with an image and a little description

Fvalentinaminio (talkcontribs)

Hello, I have noticed that when I'm reading some wiki info, I need to have a pop up with an ilustrative image and a brief info of the links dispersed in the text. Like a facebook name link, such as, when the cursor stands in the link, it developes the profile picture and info. It'll make the reading a lot easier and practical.
