Our policy is to avoid disabling anonymous editing on our wikis. The philosophy behind wikis is that of free and open collaboration, so removing the ability to edit from anonymous users runs counter to this basic tenet.

Circumstances under which this is allowed[edit | edit source]

If a wiki is experiencing excessive vandalism from anonymous sources (simple IP addresses), then temporarily removing the ability for anonymous users to edit the wiki is an acceptable measure. That said, a dozen or so edits in a day does not qualify as "excessive."
