How to claim the editing and hide my ip on the pcgw history page that i forgot to login?


Recommended Posts

While we can't attribute or merge edits performed from an IP address to a specific user account, we can however change the edits made through an IP address to essentially protect the publicity of the IP address itself.

When an editor visits the history page they'll only see "(username removed)" instead of the IP address.

I hope this is a satisfactory solution. Sadly MediaWiki (the system the wiki runs on) is sorta mindbogglingly frustrating when it comes to these sorts of things, as per its design everything is meant to be tracked and non-modifiable by default, so this seems to be the simplest solution that resulted in the same end result of the IP address not being visible to guests/users.
