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)

Hi @Johan (WMF), I think this is in general a welcome step and thanks for sharing. I haven't gone through the details and might have additional feedback when I do but masking IP addresses from public view are useful to many new users who might inadvertently reveal their identity through their edits. Also, deletion of any such edit is not straightforward, not to mention one has to convince an admin/steward to be able to do so and it is of course harder if the personal data exposure happen in an article or village pump or even a discussion page other than a user talk page.

Additionally, I hope such privacy-friendly things improve over time and even allow logged in users to even contribute while they are using VPN. Currently, logged-in users using all popular VPNs have to turn off their VPN to be able to edit. That is one repressive policy. Tor is perpetually barred. We can't have policy that suit North American and EU countries where data protection laws are well established while users face all kinds of real world consequences in the rest of the world. You'd probably agree that human life is far more valuable than "some" vandalism. Those discussions are for another day I guess.

Hey! I've noticed that you're subscribed to the Desktop Improvements newsletter. Do you think Wikipedia in Odia could become one of the "early adopter" wikis? Obviously, the community's consent is needed.

SGrabarczuk (WMF) (ଆଲୋଚନାଅବଦାନ)

Hi, have you been able to spend some time considering this?

Psubhashish (ଆଲୋଚନାଅବଦାନ)

Hi Szymon, you caught me at a rather overwhelming time. Does this require a community-level consensus? If so, then we certainly need at least 10-15 days of time considering COVID-related challenges.

SGrabarczuk (WMF) (ଆଲୋଚନାଅବଦାନ)

Yes, as I wrote, the consensus is required. Would you be able to translate this message? Or does your community feel comfortable with English?
