To prevent abuse in the countervandalism channels, users must confirm a legitimate Wikipedia account before they can talk or give bot commands in #cvn-wp-en and #cvn-wp-en-newusers. This policy is intended to prevent abuse, not restrict access by legitimate Wikipedians.
Note that very new Wikipedia accounts (often those with fewer than 300 edits) may be refused to prevent abuse. Also note that all users are welcome to idle in any channel at anytime. This procedure is entirely optional! These channels are not owned by the Counter Vandalism Unit or Wikipedia, and the policies and procedures set in the channel are set by the channel owner.
