I'd like to request an enhancement: it should be impossible to register a
username that is also a valid IP address.
The reason is that this leads to confusion with pages such as
Special:Contributions etc. and is thus used by some sneakier vandals to make
tracking them more difficult (compare [[en:WP:VIP]]).
This was added long, long ago.
If it's stopped working, can you please give some specific examples? I'm not able to replicate
which mentioned this issue.
There was a regression caused by changes to the checks in the
IPv6 support. It should be fixed now, and I've deleted the 50
accounts on en.wikipedia.org that were created.
