Account deletion[edit]

I want to delete my account, it's possible, thanks —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Evangelicos Castilla (talk)

No, it's not possible to delete accounts. You can just stop using it or rename it to another name. --Stryn (talk) 18:18, 27 January 2017 (UTC)

Cookie blocks[edit]

To prevent innocent users from being blocked, the first resort for those sysops should be to cookie blocks. 95.49.114.22 21:34, 19 February 2017 (UTC)

@95.49.114.22: Please explain what problem this solution is to solve. —Justin (koavf)TCM 23:48, 19 February 2017 (UTC)
many users wont know that the block is in cookies! 95.49.34.116 10:18, 20 February 2017 (UTC)

revoking read permission when violation Terms of Use[edit]

when somebody violates project's or meta's policies, they get tecnically blocked (canot edit). my proposal is to add tecnical bans, witch under violation Terms of Use revoke users' read privileges. 95.49.33.87 19:53, 26 February 2017 (UTC)

  • @95.49.33.87: Why? I don't want everyone vandalizing our projects but I do want everyone to be able to read them. —Justin (koavf)TCM 01:44, 27 February 2017 (UTC)
  • We try to be as least restrictive as possible, blocking someone from using an account or making edits is because it is disruptive to others. As far as reading goes, their reading is not disruptive (and they could just log out to read anyway). — xaosflux Talk 02:01, 8 May 2018 (UTC)

Possible to see which address uses my Wikipedia login?[edit]

In seeing someone attempting to use my Wikipedia login, I would like to know which IP address the attempt came from. Is this possible with the current user access?

--Vectrexer (talk) 01:21, 8 May 2018 (UTC)

@Vectrexer: that type of information is not available at this time. We are looking in to it for the future, you can follow this task for updates: phab:T174388. — xaosflux Talk 01:59, 8 May 2018 (UTC)

SecurePoll[edit]

My apology when I am at the wrong place but I am looking for info about SecurePoll. I have asked a question here Talk:SecurePoll but there is no response (yet). What is the best place to get more info about the use of SecurePoll on other Wikipedias? The Banner (talk) 12:32, 28 August 2018 (UTC)

Maybe at mw:Extension:SecurePoll, where you can find the technical details of the extension. I see some replies already at Talk:SecurePoll. Regards, —MarcoAurelio (talk) 15:23, 28 August 2018 (UTC)
