Meta:Anonymous editing

Anonymous editing allows people without a account, or users not logged in, to edit pages in the wiki.

This has two side effects:

  1. It is much easier for people to edit (and hopefully, improve) the content of the wiki.
  2. It is possible for people with accounts to make changes anonymously, when they intended to be logged in; and therefore lose any karma benefits.

The policy on anonymous editing in the wiki is under discussion. Currently, anonymous users are disallowed from creating pages, but may edit any existing pages.
