edit·history·watch·refresh Stock post message.svg To-do list for IP address:
  • Add a section about the different types of notation (dotted decimal notation, hexadecimal, binary, etc.)
  • Some history
  • How many IP addresses are static vs. dynamic?
  • A section on IP address assignation, which mentions IANA and a short description of the hierarchy. It could probably include the information from "International IP ranges" on the Talk page.
  • Add authoritative regular expressions for IPv4 and IPv6 addresses

Requests for shared IP address notification[edit]

I'm using a shared IP and keep getting helpful Wikipedia users letting me know that "my" edits are non-contributory. Is there a way that my IP can be marked as a shared IP address? 165.214.12.76 (talk) 19:14, 14 January 2016 (UTC)

This question doesn't belong on an article talk page. That aside, the IP address talk page already contains a template identifying it as a shared address. If you don't want to see such messages, use a dedicated IP or register an account with WP. You can also complain to the system administration staff at your institution that some of your employees are vandalizing WP or being otherwise disruptive, and perhaps they can address the issue at your company so that such behaviour and the resultant messages are mitigated.
