WikiIndex:RealNames — there are three ways to be identified when editing a wiki:
1. Use Real Name
WikiIndex as a community prefers that people participate using the style of RealNames.
- Some basis for this is at Meatball:UseRealNames
- The WELL - an original community on the internet learned that RealNames were important to building trust in an emotionally context free medium, such as the internet.
3. Anonymous with some traces
No login needed - aka OpenEdit. Your IP address is logged, and that is not necessarily attached to you, because often there is a variable or dynamic IP address assigned for connections to the internet. Sometimes IPs are scrambled, look for mod-scramble-ip. This method is often termed as an IP editor.
