Crown n Stem Groups diagramEdit

Hi, I don't want to keep uploading different versions which may not be used, so I've put a revised version here (which will be removed in a few days).

The colours could usefully be checked by someone into accessibility issues.

How we will see unregistered usersEdit

Hi!

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)

Thanks for the notice, Johan. For the suggestions for which you would like feedback, you're linking to a page with over 9000 words. That's a reading time of over an hour, and the TOC doesn't list a basic explanation of the “two suggested ways”. Do we have to read it all, or can you narrow down what we have to read (at least the core text; of course it can use terms that are explained elsewhere and are linked to the appropriate places; that's the beauty of hypertexts) in order to be able to give you the feedback you're asking for? ◅ Sebastian 19:02, 4 January 2022 (UTC)
Reposted at meta, but received no reply from WMF there, either. ◅ Sebastian 07:03, 9 January 2022 (UTC)
