Admin request/Main page
How many edits are required to gain admin status here? On an unrelated note, someone pointed out on Talk:Main Page that although there are links to many content wikis on the main page, strangely Wikipedia is not one of them. Could you fix that? 95j (talk) 23:49, 3 May 2010 (UTC)
- It appears one standard is evidence of trust on another wiki, and another is an established editing history here. You appear to have shown or explained neither. Re the Main Page, Done in this edit. — Jeff G. ツ 00:01, 4 May 2010 (UTC)
- Yes. User:Hamtechperson identifies as en:User:Hamtechperson, and they are the same person per the SUL account status utility. http://admintools.wikia.com/wiki/User:Planeswalker1 also identifies as en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Hamtechperson. The second one has engaged in some rather antisocial admin actions per this log, including blocking Juliancolton twice in violation of local Testing policy: Blocks, the first time commenting "I R SYSOP!: Blocking my Admin Coach", which appears to refer to a dispute near the end of http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Hamtechperson/Admin_coaching. My response was to unblock Julian, who appeared to have done nothing wrong, and notify his IRC channel. Others on that channel reminded me that Julian could have unblocked himself. The second time that user blocked Julian (again, in violation of local policy), they commented "I GOT THE POWAH!!!: And Juliancolton should get a laugh out of this one, especially when they see who blocked them." So I blocked them there. Once I found that same person starting to play around on this wiki, I blocked them here, too for cross-wiki vandalism (although I neglected to explain that in my comment). Perhaps I was too hasty in that block here. I have just reversed it and offered some explanations on both user talk pages. Sorry for any inconvenience. — Jeff G. ツ 03:26, 8 May 2010 (UTC)
- No inconvenience. That said, blocking someone for their actions on a non-wikimedia foundation wiki is frowned upon (generally). I would say hold off on blocking until they do something disruptive. That said, this is only the test wiki...there is not a whole lot of "disruption" they can cause. ;-) Tiptoety (talk) 07:24, 9 May 2010 (UTC)
IP block exemption
Hello, do you need the IP block exemption flag?02:30, 16 July 2011 (UTC)
How we will see unregistered users
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)
