Break links to external websites like you can observe being done sometimes here or in the girls article. This is so that someone can copy the text of a page and have all the links without clicking "edit". You can follow the links later or pretend that you found the information by searching the web so as to not reveal your chain of discovery. Web browsing leaves tracks I shall/have call(ed) "chains of discovery".
Youtube doesn't show you the name of the video in the url. Pretty snakey, Sis. That means you have to click on the link to find out the name. Instead we should put the name by the link so that the reader can look up the video wherever they want.
Reddit has a bot that (sometimes?) shows you the name of Youtube videos (as a comment) when someone posts a link to Youtube. Thank you to spirit of (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aaron_Swartz Aaron). Defending privacy freedom from the likes of Googal from beyond the grave. Lumeniki extends out to Reddit, but someday should be (MOAR!!1!!l!!) decentralized.
At present 17:08, October 12, 2016 (EDT) I have made some edits to lumenikiRef whilst using torbutton on the highest security setting. Fregan sweet.
Unlike your government and your IAP, Lumenos cares about your informed consent. This is clearly evident when noting the amount of time ey put into writing this page, that will likely be read by no one.
If you are reading this at http://lumeniki.referata.com/ , than Referata is this wikifarm (host) (although other wikifarms may get your IP address also). Currently, Lumenos doesn't know or interact with these people, any more than what is revealed on this page. (Getting a wiki like this is easier than getting a free email box, that is if you already have an email box to get your wiki.)
"Anonymous" reading or editing
"I was able to edit Lumeniki at Referata, without logging on, through the Tor network
Editing a lumenikiRef
If you attempt to edit a MediaWiki wiki without logging on (last time Lumenos checked) you will get a warning and the CAPTCHA, so it is pretty difficult to do by accident, so long as the software requires this. If you do edit the wiki without logging on, your IP address will appear publicly, in the history tab (located near the top of the article). If create an account and you log on, your username will appear instead.
If you are not using an anonymous proxy, Lumenos or other admins (who may be appointed later), can probably see your IP address, no matter if you are logged on or not. You should probably assume that your IP will remain in the wiki logs forever.
Lumenos can be quite tolerant in eir perception, and will almost always try rationalist consequism with someone first (especially now, since Lumenos has time for these things) but, if they are continually and intentionally decreasing the lumenotability or lumevolence of articles in LumenikiLu, in spite of explanations of why iz bad, Lumenos (or admins appointed by em) may ban their IP address from editing the wiki (for a time). Then they'll be sorry, but Lumenos must enforce liberty as best ey is able and in eir perception, they were making it unnecessarily less pleasant for the other sentients of Earth.
What an IP address can reveal
What else could be done with an IP address? Oh maybe learn anything else you been doing on the Internet and tell everybody or (if you're lucky) just blackmail you.
It may additionally provide hackers with your location.
Reading a MediaWiki wiki
Referata (the wikifarm host) probably can see your IP address when you view any page in their domain.
Lumenos copies backups to other wikifarms. Ey thinks these will have eir username ("Lumenos") instead of your's, even if you are the last editor of an article (but ey's not certain of this even), so long as ey is only copying the most recent version, but now that ey thinks about it, if there are other people editing this wiki, ey will probably be backing up the entire history, in which case ey will also probably want to test restoring the entire history to the other wiki farms. So assume that any current or future wiki farm could get your IP address (even real scary Illuminati fortresses, such as Wikia, where Lumeniki may have to go if Referata, Wikinfo, Wiki-site, and EditThis.info become unsuitable. That'd mean probably changing the license to G"F"DL which is not out of the question if this is what the people want).
