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)

Is there an example extension for creating a new Echo notification type?

Joeytje50 (talkcontribs)

Hey Moriel, I'm currently working on an extension that creates a new notification type for Echo, but after following Extension:Echo/Creating a new notification type I get some errors which I can't seem to be able to fix. I've tried using some other ways to make my extension work, but I can't get it to work still.

I've watched the video that's on that page, and if I'm correct you mentioned on there that there would be an example extension for creating a new notification type. Do you know if that extension already exists? I think that if I have an example to work with to be able to see where my extension goes wrong.

What errors are you getting with the notification type? is the event created?

There's no example extension per say -- you could just take a look at current examples from extensions that already create notifications, like Thanks. There are also examples of the notifications in Echo itself that might help...

Joeytje50 (talkcontribs)

The errors I'm getting are problems with using $this. I'm not currently sitting at the computer with my code, but in several files I've had the problem that I had to use the static syntax instead of using $this, for example in the line

        'excerpt' => EchoDiscussionParser::getEditExcerpt( $revision, $this->getLanguage() ),

but also in the function locateUsersInList, with the line

        $userIds = $this->getList( $listId )->getUsers();

which all claim I can't use $this.

Now I've tried working around that and doing that I did manage to register my new notification type in Special:Preferences, but other than that I never got the notifications to get sent to users.

Weigh in on whether to finalize the new version of the "Conflict of interest" section

MediaWiki message delivery (talkcontribs)

You participated earlier in discussion about the "Conflict of interest" section of the draft Code of Conduct for technical spaces. There was not consensus to approve an earlier version of this section. I'm contacting you to let you know the draft has been updated, and we are now discussing whether to finalize the new version.

Please participate here.

Thank you,

Please provide feedback on suggested improvements to the Code of Conduct

MediaWiki message delivery (talkcontribs)

Thanks to everyone who’s helped work on the Code of Conduct so far.

People have brought up issues they feel were missed when working on "Unacceptable behavior" and "Report a problem". Consultants have also suggested changes in these same sections.

These are important sections, so please take a look at the proposed changes. I apologize that this feedback arrived later than planned, but I think this will create a better document.

If you prefer to give your opinion privately, feedback via e-mail is welcome at conduct-discussionwikimedia.org.

Thanks. Mattflaschen-WMF via
