Description Raimond Spekking 2006-08-18 08:14:10 UTC
The paramter $1 in [[MediaWiki:confirmemail body]] and
[[MediaWiki:Passwordremindertext]] is HTTP-linked to the IP itself. But in most
cases (I assume > 95%) a click to this URL will fail into an error message
because it is a dynamic IP without webserver behind.

Proposal: Link $1 to a DNS information system like (or any other system the
devs like).

Benefit: A click will not fail and the user can prove easier the origin of the
