Welcome to my talk page!

Read through the following text BEFORE you write your comments:

  • Have I commented on your talk page, I will monitor it for your reply. This so we keep the discussion together in one place. Don't reply here. If I have commented on your talk page and you reply here, I will in most cases move your reply to your talk page anyway.
  • Always sign your comments with four tilde (~~~~).
  • Put new comments under a ==Describing headline== at the bottom of the page.
  • If I have deleted a page that you have written, I'm sure there is more information on your talk page about the reason. Read it through before asking for the reason here.
  • If you would like to complain about a block that affect your account or want to ask for a block, use Steward requests/Global instead of my talk page. It's often quicker and it can be handled by all Stewards.
  • If you would like to request a global block, place the request at Steward requests/Global.
  • If you leave a message here, I will reply here. In normal case I will not reply by e-mail.
  • Vandalism and nonsense will be deleted.

Have you read all the text above?? OK, then you can continue.

How we will see unregistered usersEdit


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 Tegel, I was wondering how these IPs [1][2] could still edit even though the IP-Range was already globally blocked? -- Johannnes89 (talk) 16:53, 10 February 2022 (UTC)

Meta is not covered by the global block. This is so users can come to Meta and ask to be unblocked. -- Tegel (Talk) 16:56, 10 February 2022 (UTC)
Ahh ok that makes sense, thanks for explaining! Johannnes89 (talk) 17:04, 10 February 2022 (UTC)


I’ve been blocked for long term abuse but I’m honestly confused for what said abuse is? I swear I didn’t do anything to harm Wikipedia I would like to know why I’m blocked in Wikipedia and if it was a mistake or not. I Am Hunted (talk) 22:08, 15 February 2022 (UTC)

Okay so I didn’t do anything wrong per day but the ip I use is the one blocked. Is there anyway for regular users to bypass it or do I have to wait? I Am Hunted (talk) 22:44, 15 February 2022 (UTC)

Hi. Good recommendation by 1234qwer1234qwer4. And I noticed that you edited Wikipedia in English just a few hours ago, so the problem seems to be solved. -- Tegel (Talk) 23:36, 16 February 2022 (UTC)

Greetings.. I have a complaint Nominate me a Wikipedia administrator who can help me take legal action To preserve page from vandalism and remove the quick scan templateEditعلاءمستخدم:HitomiAkaneعلاء&action=viewعلاء&action=view

Greetings.. I have a complaint against an Egyptian administrator. Please look into it in all honesty.. the administrator Name is “HitomiAkane” he send false information about Mirette El Hariri And he agreed with an administrator Alaa from the Arabic Wikipedia to support him and help him sabotage Mirette El Hariri's page and delete her information from Wikidata. .. Someone is stubborn about downloading the creation of the Egyptian Wikipedia page and He has an irrational stubbornness ،And he has friends who support him Kiro Bassem and Alaa . Mirette El Hariri She won the Best Actress award in the movie Hawi, directed by Ibrahim Al-Batout, and there is evidence!! And She is also a beautician and ran two branches of beauty center in the highest quality, and she studied in the largest cosmetic schools in Europe, and she is a very important person. Either the page will remain or will be deleted Mirette El Hariri From a well-known political family It is not desirable that a person has stubbornness to make it a war and send false information just because he does not want to create a page even though all the criteria are available!!

I know that Wikipedia is a respectable and large encyclopedia, and all the two administrators in it are moral and fair. I hope for your help and take a decision to stop HitomiAkane and his friend who supports him in sabotaging Alaa nd Kiro Bassem .. ( please help me to action thank u )
