WikiIndex:Real names — 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 real names.
- Some basis for this is at Meatball:UseRealNames
- The WELL - an original community on the internet learned that real names were important to building trust in an emotionally context free medium, such as the internet.
3. Anonymous with some traces
No log-in needed - aka open edit. Your IP address is logged, and that may not necessarily attached directly and exclusively to you; because often there is a variable or dynamic IP address assigned for connections to the internet. Sometimes IPs are scrambled, search the web for mod-scramble-ip. This method is often termed as an IP editor.
