I don't want to reveal my real User nameEdit
I am a regular user who can't log in from where I am. I don't want to reveal my real User name because I don't want my location checked based on the anon IP I'm using. 126.96.36.199 (talk) 17:01, 23 September 2009 (UTC)
- Question: I know this is going to fall into the category of “questions whose answers are intuitively obvious”, but I thought that one could log in from anywhere in the world, so why would one ever have to edit anonymously? Plus, there is now a disconnect between your two sets of edits making your Wikipedia world harder for you to keep track of. — Spike (talk) 17:49, 23 September 2009 (UTC)
- Another silly question, and please forgive me, but is this allowed? The reason I ask is that just the other day I was advising another editor that, once he has a Wikipedia account for making logged-in edits, he runs the risk of being accused of sock puppetting if he makes any not logged-in, anonymous edits. If, however, what you are saying is true/correct, then I incorrectly advised this fellow and need to rectify that. Thanks! — Spike (talk) 19:02, 23 September 2009 (UTC)
This is the discussion page for an IP user, identified by the user's IP address. Many IP addresses change periodically, and are often shared by several users. If you are an IP user, you may create an account or log in to avoid future confusion with other IP users. Registering also hides your IP address.
