Project idea[edit]

What is the problem you're trying to solve?[edit]

With this it will make anyone that edits a page to create an account in order to edit the page. When you do this it will prevent IP bans and which IP bans effects schools and when someone is being a troll there IP is gonna get banned and that IP is on the School Network System and that will effect everyone from being able to get on any Wikimedia Projects.

What is your solution?[edit]

Like I said above you will be required to login to edit so that away you ban the account and the email address so they cant create another account with that same email address.

Project goals[edit]

Prevent IP Bans to Allow School Systems to still be allowed access on Wikimedia Projects.
