2021 WM Eventbrite registration procedure: some snags[edit source]
Dear Lodewijk aka Effeietsanders,
I am contacting you as you are listed here as one of the organizers. (I have also noted this email route but I would rather use my WP account and enquire in the clear, also to advise other Wikipedians by linking hereto should they raise similar doubts on other wikiprojects.)
Please advise me about the T&Cs of the Eventbrite registration for 2021 WM. As a test I singed up yesterday using an anonymous email account and not providing my wikinym, for obvious reasons. However, after 24 hours I have not received a working link or password, apart from the generic confirmation "Order Confirmation for Wikimania 2021 ... The organizer will follow up with instructions on how to redeem your ticket and access the event."
Should we thus wait and keep looking up in this temp account until WM commences? Are there additional T&Cs (Eventbrite's? Organizers'?) apart from the ones published here? Is registration decided manually, e.g. based on the answers provided in the form? I have some other comments about the process itself but let me leave it at that for now.

How we will see unregistered users[edit source]
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)
