This page exists to post alerts about any incidents of vandalism that are occurring, so that other users and administrators can more promptly respond to them. Wikiquote's definition of vandalism is the same as Wikipedia's and can be seen at w:Wikipedia:Vandalism.

Care should be taken before assuming an initial contribution is vandalism unless it's blatantly obvious the user knows what they're doing.

If the vandal is known to attack more then one language, or more then one Wikimedia wiki, it is recommended they also be noted on Vandalism reports in Meta or a global block be requested on Steward requests/Global.

Adding reportsEdit

It is recommended the following be done when adding a new report. Start a new section, give it a unique title (Usually the name of the offender), then list the accounts/IPs used, and their MO. The templates {{vandal}} or {{IPvandal}} can be used to give a number of links handy for dealing with vandals. Its use is {{vandal|NameOrIPOfTheVandal}}, where the text after the | is the IP/name, without the "User:" prefix. Also, for vandalic usernames that get blocked indefinitely, there exists a template {{indefblockeduser}}.

If you are reporting spam (commercial links posted to multiple pages), post about them in the section on spam.

SpammersEdit

As spammers are one of the most common vandalisers, they have a separate section here.

    • I'm afraid all his addition is a hoax. For example,Frances Cornford. Nor the book nor the publisher the database of the Library of Congress doesn't know. A similar service in Japan, CiNii Books doesn't know them either. Can anyone in the UK ask the same query on an equivalent reliable book catalogue in the UK? --Aphaia (talk) 18:38, 14 November 2015 (UTC)

I tried, and the sources do in fact exist! I have checked to see if they really do exist, and they do. The sources showed up, and I'm a bit confused as to why you did not find them. This is a friendly IP, who hates hoaxes, but this seems legit, folks. This seems to be a case of obscure sources, not vandalism, or a hoaxer.

Well, it was a 1980 film. I do not believe this is vandalism: the user has shown good faith by including both the original 1980 film and a later reedited DVD version in the article, which you reverted[2].

My own opinion is that I can see no good reason, in an article about the notable 1980 film, to pay any attention to tweaks in re-releases at all. This should be discussed in a civil manner without crying "vandalism". ~ Ningauble (talk) 16:53, 7 November 2016 (UTC)

User:MonsterHunter32Edit

MonsterHunter32 (talk · contribs · deleted contribs · logs · edit filter log · block user · block log) This user account has repeatedly mass blanked quotes from many articles, out of apparent censorship of quotes and using very poor excuses, recently at Somnath temple (where he repeatedly removed a quote by Wilkie Collins), and more recently at Aurangzeb (where he removed quotes from Will Durant, Jadunath Sarkar, Elliot and Dowson, Arnold J. Toynbee, R. C. Majumdar, Arun Shourie, S.R. Goel, Wilkie Collins and many others). They seem to be the same user as User: 157.39.200.248 and other IPs. --Jedi3 (talk) 18:29, 5 March 2018 (UTC)

Can something please be done about MonsterHunter32 massive and repeated vandalism and blankings and censorship? I have tried to discuss the matter with him repeatedely, but he continues with his massive vandalism and refuses to find a consensus or collaborate. I would also welcome comments on the Wilkie Collins quote which is quoted in the section below and on Talk:Somnath temple from other editors. --Jedi3 (talk) 21:09, 5 March 2018 (UTC)
This guy keeps on claiming I'm vandalising and blanking but I'm only removing non-notable quotes which I said a thousand times. At the same time, I am adding notable quotes. I am not going to empty the article nor remove any notable quote. I will like it if he was warned not to edit war and commented about his non-relevance of all his many quotes on Talk:Aurangzeb. A very similar disruptive editor DanielTom too backed his edits once, DanielTom's behaviour too has been flagged for POV-pushing and disruptiveness on Wikiquote:Administrators' noticeboard.

It is funny you are talking about DanielTom when he has himself been conplained on Wikiquote:Administrators' noticeboard#Unprofessional and uncivil behaviour of DanielTom. But that shows what kind of user are. You are blaming me, but you keep reverting and don't even let me edit without disrupting. That is true vandalism. MonsterHunter32 (talk) 22:43, 5 March 2018 (UTC)
I'm calling your edits vandalism because the mass blanking and mass censorship of quotes from articles, which you have explained as quotes that you believe are pov (alledgely as you claim "against Islam", but in fact only against a controversial ruler, and in "favour of Hinduism", and in "favour of Hindus"), is vandalism. Aurangzeb is probably the most controversial ruler of India, this is a fact, so it is natural that not all quotes are neutral, and indeed these quotes are also quoted in sources critical about Aurangzeb, of which there are plenty. The proper way to resolve this is to add quotes with an alternate pov. There are also critical quotes about other controversial rulers and kings on wikiquote, who were not Muslims, but who were Hindus, Christians, Communists or atheists. So this not even about Islam at all, but simply about what was said about a highly controversial and infamous ruler. But the mass censorship of such quotes which you don't want to discuss on the talkpage is censorship and will be reverted as vandalism. I have asked MonsterHunter many times to please add subsections and explantions for the quotes he wants to delete, so it can be discussed and we can find a consensus. His vandalism and edit warring seems to show a mentality that is opposed to consensus and collaboration. But wikiquote requires collaboration and consensus building and also requires respecting different views. --Jedi3 (talk) 22:51, 5 March 2018 (UTC)
No you are calling it because you have failed to prove in any way they are notable and are only adding them because you want to add Muslims and other non-Hindus doing "bad things". You can add quotes as long as they are notable. I haven't said don't add any critical quotes. But anyway you haven't added any critical quotes of Hindus, not unless the Muslim is a doing a "contoversial thing". Also you yourself stated that notability is impossible on Talk:Aurangzeb. Wikiquote also requires not disrupting it. I haven't stopped any notable edits which "criticse" anyone. Also DanielTom has been recommended for a topic ban in future. I guess in you case, there should be a total ban. MonsterHunter32 (talk) 23:00, 5 March 2018 (UTC)
You are seriously complaining because "critical" quotes are present about Aurangzeb who is probably the most controversial and most criticized ruler of ancient or medieval India? You are complaining because some quotes are present that say that he destroyed temples, but this is one of the main things that he is known (and infamous) for. This also not about Muslims "doing bad things" as you claim, there are also critical quotes about other controversial rulers and kings on wikiquote, who were not Muslims, but who were Hindus, Christians, Communists or atheists. I don't remember where I have added critical quotes, but I do remember that I did not censor, delete and blank critical sourced quotes from any article. In any case, I expect an explanation for each deleted quote on the talkpage, otherwise your edits are just blatant vandalism and censorship. --Jedi3 (talk) 00:54, 6 March 2018 (UTC)
Have I removed any "criticising" edit which I found notable? None. It's simply you "lying" as you have done many times in past. There are also many "good" quotes about Aurangzeb as well and they can easily be found. There is then also "criticism". I have added "criticism" quotes myself. That's because I don't add only positive or negative side. I add all. But in your edits there's no "criticism," only just read in a medieval text he destroyed a temple, did this etc and add it to only give an overall negative image. This is about you only adding Muslim doing "bad things". There is no "censorship" in removing edits which are not notable and are only made to further an agenda. It's "not doing what I want on a website." MonsterHunter32 (talk) 01:22, 6 March 2018 (UTC)
There is no problem in you adding "positive" about Aurangzeb to the article. After all, the article is not that large compared to some other articles and can still grow, and other controversial rulers like Pol Pot also have some positive quotes about them. It is only the mass blanking of sourced quotes you didn't like with poor excuses that was the problem. And it is not about "Muslim doing "bad things" as you claim, it is a fact that Aurangzeb is one of the most controversial rulers, so there are proportionally a lot of "critical" quotes about him compared to other Muslim rulers like Akbar (who by the way is a Muslim about whom I added some positive quotes, so your personal attack from above is wrong). --Jedi3 (talk) 01:45, 6 March 2018 (UTC)
There is no problem in you adding a 'negative" except when it is added despite being non-notable because your edits have an agenda. Removing non-notable \clutter which you didn't even properly copied is not blanking, especially when one is trying to improve the article unlike you.youir claims of adding on a few subjects like Akbar (not an orthodox Muslim), which some Hindutva ideologues still see as tolerant as compared to other Muslim rulers, though some do not, it only proves my point of you editing with Hindutva intent. Aurangzeb was at some times tolerant too. It could easily be found. If you don't make neutral edits, I will. MonsterHunter32 (talk) 07:13, 6 March 2018 (UTC)
So a moderate Muslim like Akbar is not a real Muslim for you, but only a fundamentalist like Aurangzeb counts for you? Will Durant writes about Aurangzeb that "A few Moslems worshiped him as a saint, but the mute and terrorized millions of India looked upon him as a monster", so he was clearly one of the most controversial rulers, probably the most controversial ruler of India, so there are proportionally a lot of "critical" quotes about him compared to other Muslim rulers like Akbar. I added positive quotes about Muslims like Akbar, but I also came across memorable 'negative' ones, (for example about his younger years when he also engaged in jihad), that I could have added but I didn't add them, to keep the proportion (the article was still small, if it was larger maybe I would have added it). I was also going to add more positive quotes about other moderate Muslims too, but lately have not edited in that topic area. Also please stop your personal attacks. --Jedi3 (talk) 09:36, 6 March 2018 (UTC)
Jedi3 I've seen your claims about Akbar. But it's the same problem, excpt this time instead of Akbar, it's other non-Hindus who are negatively mentioned. In one, it is about slavery under Muslim rule of India and "intolerant Jesuit" Christians mentioned in the same breadth. You talk about personal attacks, but refer me as a vandal. Look at your own actions. MonsterHunter32 (talk) 16:16, 6 March 2018 (UTC)
After the article was protected, I initiated the discussion on the deleted quotes, but MonsterHunter still continues to refuse to discuss the deleted quotes on the talkpage. Instead he continues editwarring in the exactly same manner in other articles. By refusing to start to discuss the deleted quotes and instead starting to edit war in the same manner in other articles he is showing a mentality that is opposed to consensus and collaboration. But wikiquote requires collaboration and consensus building and also requires respecting different views. --Jedi3 (talk) 17:48, 6 March 2018 (UTC)
What discussion? I already shifted the quotes and mentioned the reasons in my edit summary and summarised it in talk. If you still have a problem as I said, take a look. Consensus isn't an excuse for vandalism and edit-warring. Wikiquote requires editors to contribute, not to make it about themselves. This is not a website about "views" and it matters little unless the only view is POV-pushing without giving a hoot about notability or relevance and in some cases poor copying or joining or up your own quotes. Wikiquote requires notable quotes. If you want to collaborate, first follow the spirit of Wikiquote, don't run this website as your property. There is no scope for the massive vandalism and disruption you did. You have been given a lot of chances. MonsterHunter32 (talk) 18:36, 6 March 2018 (UTC)
The discussion (as you know very well) is at Talk:Aurangzeb#MonsterHunter32's deletion of quotes: Explanation Quote 1 (Will Durant quote). You still continue to refuse to discuss the deleted quotes there. I had to initiate the discussion but you are still refusing to discuss. Instead he continues editwarring in the exactly same manner in other articles. By refusing to start to discuss the deleted quotes and instead starting to edit war in the same manner in other articles he is showing a mentality that is opposed to consensus and collaboration. But wikiquote requires collaboration and consensus building and also requires respecting different views.--Jedi3 (talk) 20:19, 6 March 2018 (UTC)
The talk as you know very well at Talk:Aurangzeb started long before your creation of "your" separate section, it was me who created the talk page. See the first comment on the page. I already told you to look at edit summary as I don't have so much time, what's your problem? You do not want to do anything except have your edits there at every cost and are continuously being disruptive. It is ironic you are talking about cooperation. You have yourself refused cooperation with you incessant deceptive claims, bad faith editing and refused to acknowledge your mistakes.
At several places when I tried to talk to you, not just many times you didn't budge from your stand, but you started making up your own rule. What's moire you even made up false claims, like you did with the title of Moonstone, making up a quote at Sikandar Butshikan and still claiming Ferishta mentions destruction of Martand temple when he didn't, falsely accusing me of "censoring" when all I said is that your edits were biased and that is why you were adding non-notable ones.
Not to mention the continuous edit-warring started by you. You complained me because you couldn't get what you want and you talk about "censoring". I could have complained you much earlier. There is a reason why edit summaries exist. No point in your deflective statements. MonsterHunter32 (talk) 09:37, 7 March 2018 (UTC)
Discussions are done at the discussion page, not over edit summaries. There is a good reason that wikiquote has discussion pages! You now admit your refusal to discuss at the talkpage, with the poor excuse that you are using edit summaries. There is nothing wrong with the title of the moonstone, the origin of the moonstone by Wilkie Collins is Somnath, so there is a strong connection to Somnath even with the moonstone. This discussion is already elsewhere. Elliot and Dowson write that "Firishta' attributes to Sikandar the demolition of all the Kashmirian temples save one, which was dedicated to Mahadeva, and which only escaped ' in consequence of its foundation being below the surface of the neighbouring water". So whom should I believe, an outstanding scholar like Elliot or ... you? This discussion is also already elsewhere. --Jedi3 (talk) 12:08, 7 March 2018 (UTC)
Discussions are not done through edit-warring and vandalism, please remember that. As for Martanda, even if Elliot and Dowson claimed he destroyed all temples, did Ferishta mention Martand? Does talking about Ellipt & Dowson you any licence to add a made up quote? You didn't copy it from Elliot & Dowson, you copied it from Wikipedia where it was purpoted it was from Ferishta. This is not Wikipedia, but a collection of quotes. What I asked is whether Ferishta mentions Martand. Whom should you believe? The original author ie Ferishta. Discussion maybe wherever, but that you made up a quote and then made up a claim that you still believe Ferishta mentions it. That is called "lying". And those who deliberatley lie can't be allowed here. MonsterHunter32 (talk) 14:05, 7 March 2018 (UTC)

MonsterHunter32 is continuing his edit warring and censoring of sourced quotes on various articles, and still refusing to move deleted quotes to the Talk page with a note that they were removed from the article, giving full reasoning, as required by Template:Remove. His vandalism and edit warring seems to show a mentality that is opposed to consensus and collaboration. But wikiquote requires collaboration and consensus building and also requires respecting different views. --Jedi3 (talk) 18:04, 10 March 2018 (UTC)

Jedi3 like a typical bad-intentioned editor is falsely claiming victimsation under the guise of censorship even though I have only removed non-notable quotes or made-up ones, not quotes that are notable. Please do not use such false claims of victimisation. Also you are reverting constantly as well, so you are "edit-watring". Besides who is opposed to consensus? Is it not someone who lied about blanking, quotes, rules, false claims of "crnsorship", called me annoying, claimed I was talking about your religious beliefs etc? You are not interested in any collaboration or contribution, but only imposing your ideology here. MonsterHunter32 (talk) 21:55, 14 March 2018 (UTC)
Can something please be done about MonsterHunter32 massive and repeated vandalism and blankings and censorship which he refuses to discuss on the talkpage? I have tried to discuss the matter with him repeatedely, but he continues with his massive vandalism and refuses to find a consensus or collaborate. He also refuses to move the censored and blanked quotes to the talkpage as required by Template:Remove. I would also welcome comments on the Wilkie Collins quote which is quoted above and on Talk:Somnath temple from other editors. After numerous attempts at talkpage discussion and a protected article he continues his censorship and edit warring at numerous articles, refusing to get consensus, refusing to move the censored quotes to talk as required by Template:Remove. --Jedi3 (talk) 21:09, 5 March 2018 (UTC)
This user has been constantly making up false claims while blaming me of censorship. He's only interested in POV-pushing. He even made up a quote at Sikandar Butshikan and made up a false reason to remove a quote at Muslim conquest of the Indian subcontinent. This is not even mentioning how he keeps adding quotes not even visible beyond a single source and falsely keeps calling quotes poignant or witty or eloquent etc. Even though they are not an automatic criteria, he also doesn't even understand their definition and keeps describing quotes as eloquent, poignant, witty etc just to have his edits there at all costs. I've told him several times about this including here. This user himself doesn't care about cooperation, instead all his talks are meant for is lying and furthering his view at all costs. Please block him. MonsterHunter32 (talk) 12:49, 16 March 2018 (UTC)

User:Jedi3Edit

Jedi3 (talk · contribs · deleted contribs · logs · edit filter log · block user · block log) I've been trying to improve the articles this user has edited by but he has been making disruptive edits while adding non-notable quotes just to push his agenda of Hindutva. He has also been consistently edit-warring with me. While he is complaining of me vandalising, I have only removed non-notable quotes and left any notable quotes in place. He has done so on many numerous pages including Aurangzeb, Somnath temple and Wilkie Collins are places where he does what he wants, makes non-notable additions and edit-wars continously.

At Sikandar Butshikan, he even even indirectly admitted to verbatrim copying from Wikipedia before checking the source.

I've tried to correct his mistakes and quote what is truly relevant. But he keeps on making his own rules and doesn't listen. He uses discussion to impose what he wants and doesn't agree to the rules despite being told several times including at Talk:Somnath temple and his own talk page including here, here and [3]. He doesn't listen and has removed my advice several times from his talk page.

I've tried to improve the articles by adding non-notable quotes but he keeps reverting and doesn't let me add quotes without being disrupted. This is vandalism. Please block him. Thank you. MonsterHunter32 (talk) 18:53, 5 March 2018 (UTC)

Please stop your personal attacks. You have been censoring quotes on a huge scale from wikiquote on very poor excuses. I have discussed at Talk:Somnath temple about your repeated removal of this quote:
  • At that date, the Mohammedan conqueror, Mahmoud of Ghizni, crossed India; seized on the holy city of Somnauth; and stripped of its treasures the famous temple, which had stood for centuries--the shrine of Hindoo pilgrimage, and the wonder of the Eastern world. Of all the deities worshipped in the temple, the moon-god alone escaped the rapacity of the conquering Mohammedans. Preserved by three Brahmins, the inviolate deity, bearing the Yellow Diamond in its forehead, was removed by night, and was transported to the second of the sacred cities of India--the city of Benares.
but you fail to show any convincing reason why the quote is not relevant to the article on Somnnath (and since the quote calls Somnath the "wonder of the Eastern World" it is highly memorable). Now he is repeating his tendentious blankings, censorship and edit-warring at the Aurangzeb article. --Jedi3 (talk) 19:06, 5 March 2018 (UTC)
That's easy, you earlier removed the last part when I pointed to you that it was actually about "The Moonstone". Also something that is not relevant and not really much quoted by others is not "notable" in any sense. Now please show me how it is notable? You yourself proved my point. There is no "censoring". I have not touched any relevant and notable quotes I've seen. MonsterHunter32 (talk) 19:11, 5 March 2018 (UTC)
The full quote is entirerly correct, notable and relevant, as it still has descriptions of Somnath (it implicitly describes Somnath as the most sacred of cities of India, before Benares). I have made the quote shorter as part of the consensus building with you, but you still continued your edit warring and blankings. --Jedi3 (talk) 19:20, 5 March 2018 (UTC)
The full quote is nit relevant as the main topic was always Moonstone, and even you removed about it. The actual topic of the article was Somnath. You have yourself proved that when you added it, you never checked whether what you added was actually focusing on the topic. Merely describing something sacred isn't part of notability. The whole book is about the Moonstone diamond btw. Please be careful and at least make relevant quotes. This isn't a problem on one page. MonsterHunter32 (talk) 19:41, 5 March 2018 (UTC)
The topic of the book may be the Moonstone (and the origin of the moonstone is Somnath by the way), but the topic of the full quote is also Somnath. An influential English novel describing an exotic place (for English people) like Somnath in vivid detail means the quote is memorable. --Jedi3 (talk) 19:47, 5 March 2018 (UTC)
We can all read the quote. It's mentioned as the place where the Moonstone was located and some details added about it. There can be no dispute the passage was actually about the Moonstone. But regardless you have never checked its notability. You never proved once any notability nor checked it beforehand. Now you are making up stuff. Also as I said earlier, I have already started adding notable quotes on Aurangzeb. If you didn't disrupt, it would be much easier and the article a lot better. MonsterHunter32 (talk) 20:13, 5 March 2018 (UTC)
Have you read the quote in the context of the book also? It is available online, and after many discussion I expect that you did. Then you would perhaps more clearly see that an influential English novel describing an exotic place (for English people) like Somnath in vivid detail is memorable. --Jedi3 (talk) 20:32, 5 March 2018 (UTC)
I read the other statements of the page too. Somnath was the place where it was located before being looted. From there some words are added. The focus however is still Moonstone. We can all read it. Regardless you are not proving notability. MonsterHunter32 (talk) 20:47, 5 March 2018 (UTC)
I would welcome comments on the Wilkie Collins quote from other editors. I believe that the quote is memorable and relevant, after all it calls Somnath "the wonder of the Eastern World". I'm pinging those editors that have already previously commented about MonsterHunter32 (on his deletion nominations): @UDScott: @Kalki: @DanielTom: --Jedi3 (talk) 22:38, 5 March 2018 (UTC)
@DanielTom: has himself been complained about at Wikiquote:Administrators' noticeboard#Unprofessional and uncivil behaviour of DanielTom has been recommended for a topic ban. While you are blaming me, it is ironic that you wanted to use another accused editor with similar biased views towards subjects like Barack Obama. How is just calling it a wonder make it notable? I also invite @Prinsgezinde: to comment. I am calling @UDScott:, @CensoredScribe:, @Ningauble: to comment and take action against Jedi3. MonsterHunter32 (talk) 22:53, 5 March 2018 (UTC)
That thread about me which you keep linking to is from 2016 and was started by someone with an ax to grind who was actually found to be "in the wrong" in that dispute. Having said that, I am of course biased and will refrain from commenting on this particular dispute other than stating that I believe MonsterHunter32 is being extremely annoying and disruptive. ~ DanielTom (talk) 10:29, 6 March 2018 (UTC)
DanielTom That thread has only been linked to show that you have been yourself a disruptive user in past. Please don't call someone as annoying, that's an insultive term. MonsterHunter32 (talk) 13:41, 6 March 2018 (UTC)
Annoying is not a personal attack, but MonsterHunters continued abusive comments about other's people supposed religious or political beliefs are. --Jedi3 (talk) 15:19, 7 March 2018 (UTC)
Jedi3 Pick up a dictionary. Annoying means irritating and harassing or making angry. If you are being "annoyed", then perhaps you need a control on your self. MonsterHunter32 (talk) 16:18, 7 March 2018 (UTC)
DanielTom, if I had an axe to grind, wouldn't I have pursued it a bit further than not at all? For the record, I'm not concerned with who "won", it appeared to be the only way at the time to highlight your behaviour and possibly get a response from you and the others involved. Did I go about it the wrong way? Probably - it would have been much more believable if I hadn't restored that disputed content first. Anyway, enough about a discussion from 2 years back. I'm not active on Wikiquote at all so I also don't think I should be involved. I don't know what DanielTom's editing behaviour is like now and I'm not going to go through any edits to find out. Anything I thought I knew about him only applied to the editor 2 years ago. Prinsgezinde (talk) 18:15, 6 March 2018 (UTC)
Can something please be done about MonsterHunter32 massive and repeated vandalism and blankings and censorship which he refuses to discuss on the talkpage? I have tried to discuss the matter with him repeatedely, but he continues with his massive vandalism and refuses to find a consensus or collaborate. He also refuses to move the censored and blanked quotes to the talkpage as required by Template:Remove. I would also welcome comments on the Wilkie Collins quote which is quoted above and on Talk:Somnath temple from other editors. After numerous attempts at talkpage discussion and a protected article he continues his censorship and edit warring at numerous articles, refusing to get consensus, refusing to move the censored quotes to talk as required by Template:Remove. --Jedi3 (talk) 21:09, 5 March 2018 (UTC)

The following minimum has been agreed to and must be observed:

Regarding your second point, I have attempted discussion with him many times, as you can read on the talkpages. But a bare minimum should be that the above point from Template:Remove is observed, which should then be the basis for further discussion. Otherwise he will just continue his edit warring, with poor excuses like that his edit summaries are already "enough" discussion, and continuing his uncivil behavior, as just now observed when he ignored your warnings. --Jedi3 (talk) 13:48, 16 March 2018 (UTC)

I have been trying to implement the minimum point that was agreed to. But MonsterHunter just keeps on reverting and edit-warring, hoping that by his behaviuor I will also get blocked. But MonsterHunter refuses to even discuss, claiming that the mass blanking of different quotes from different authors from different articles is justified because he "already gave the reasons in the edit summary", refusing to give full reasoning for each quote on the talkpage. Something must be done about this user. --Jedi3 (talk) 14:04, 16 March 2018 (UTC)
You haven't even implemented the most important bare-minimum: No edit-warring or vandalism. All you've tried to implement since day one is only your agenda. At User talk:UDScott#User:MonsterHunter32, you have been faulted as well. You have been told that you are POV-pushing and your quotes are not memorable. It is your job that quotes are notable, but others have to make sure they are.
Just recently, this user Jedi3 edit-warred at 6 different articles and he's talking about "bare minimum". He still hasn't stopped lying including his claims about censorships including above comment, at UDScott's talk page.
These are all just recent actions of his. And I'm not even listing everything wrong he has done. He has repeated this behaviour in the past. It is clear he has no intention at all to contribute to Wikiquote. There is no choice but to block him as he has no real intention of cooperation. MonsterHunter32 (talk) 14:54, 16 March 2018 (UTC)

MonsterHunter32 mass-censoring pages againEdit

MonsterHunter32 (talk · contribs · deleted contribs · logs · edit filter log · block user · block log) is mass-censoring pages again, without even discussion on the talkpage. Can someone please stop him? --Jedi3 (talk) 11:33, 19 April 2018 (UTC)

I'm only removing his non-notable and non-related quotes. Besides Jedi3 can discuss anytime when I'm free. Do remeber that this user while talking about discussion is still edit-warring at Somnath temple until a few days ago, where he still hasn't finished the argument at Talk:Somnath temple. MonsterHunter32 (talk) 11:37, 19 April 2018 (UTC)
Also I'm not even removing every non=notable quote. Even though I decided to stay away on admin advice, Jedi3 again reverted me with false claims. Despise the argument over even one of his quotes never being resolved, he used the false reason "see talk" to add back his non-notable content. He could only add it back, because I decided to let it go. However, he used false claims like he had some victory in the argument over the quotes.

Here are his reverts, [4], [5], [6], [7], [8].

Not withstanding most of my edits aren't about Islam, they are mostly about Muslim rulers, Jedi3's disruptive edits have also extended to European Christian rulers and ancient India.

He actually made 6 reverts, another one without any reason : [9]. Why don;t you do anything? he has lied multiple times, but I don't want to edit-war.

This is not his first time making false claims, his made-up and unrelated quotes: [10], [11], [12]. Despite me pointing out with original sources and teh quotes themselves about his false claims in these edits, he still refuses to accept it, see his denials despite being exposed: [13], [14]

Some false claims of "massive blanking" despite only one quote being removed: [15], [16], [17].

It is also clear, that Jedi3 hasn't bothered to verify his quotes from the original sources, and is just adding based on whjetevr he reads especially from hindutva-leaning authors. just recently he showed thew truth of his edit process, when at Babur, I couldn't find the quote Jedi3 added I simply shifted it to disputed before it could be verified. Only after I said so, Jedi3 bothered to verify it, however it isn't exactly the book of the Hindutva-leaning SR Goel claimed: [18]. He has shown the same behavior of not verifying his claims: In the last part of my comment here, I pointed out with the original sources he used for a quote that it is not about Muhammad bin Qasim. He however has refused to accept his wrongdoings about it: [19], [20]. Similarly, at Talk:Sikandar Butshikan, he indirectly admitted to copying quotes from Wikipedia without checking if they're true when I pointed out his quote doesn't exist in the orignal source.

Action needs to be taken against this disruptive person otherwise it's a mockery of moderation and the Wiki policies. I have't edit-warred with jedi3 and reported him to Kalki too. Please take action against this disruptive user. MonsterHunter32 (talk) 13:25, 19 April 2018 (UTC)

Thomas and Friends disruptive IPsEdit

MonsterHunter32 should be blockedEdit

MonsterHunter32 (talk · contribs · deleted contribs · logs · edit filter log · block user · block log) should be blocked for his massive vandalism and mass blanking of quotes without even discussion on the talkpage, which other editors have also called a massive and almost indiscriminate removals and which as disruptive vandalism are surely a blockable offence.

He has been warned enough already.

He has been told enough times already that he should at the very least observe this rule:

All quotes removed by User:MonsterHunter32 must always be moved by him to the article talkpage with a note that they were removed from the article, giving full reasoning (for each removed quote), as required by Template:Remove. Otherwise, the status quo (uncensored) version should be kept and/or restored.

Other editors have noticed the same, see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User_talk:Bishonen#Need_your_help_again and https://en.wikiquote.org/wiki/User_talk:UDScott#MonsterHunter32 and other places.

Also see Daniels' latest comment here https://en.wikiquote.org/w/index.php?title=Wikiquote:Administrators%27_noticeboard&diff=prev&oldid=2391342

Do the admins think that the editors’ time is so worthless that users like MH32 will continue creating problems one by one, and each time others will take the pain to go to various noticeboards to seek a justice only to find that MH32 is back again with his problematic behavior? How many times do we have to come back here before we decide that this is a net negative to the project? How much time does he have to waste before enough is enough?

I will also gladly respond to any editor about any questions regarding the invalid and poor excuses that MH32 is giving for his massive censorship, most of which are deliberate misrepresentations or worse, including his most recent one at Babar (where he claimed that he couldn't find it in the source, even though the page of the source he linked does discuss the very issue MH32 is complaining about in the footnote). And what is needed, after the pages are protected and MH32 is blocked, is some input and comments from other editors about the deleted quotes, which I have already asked for many times, since the discussion with someone like MH32 who refuses to make the slightest concession that others might have a different opinion on any issue is unproductive and third party opinons are needed. --Jedi3 (talk) 13:41, 19 April 2018 (UTC)


Please block disruptive Jedi3Edit

User:Jedi3 keeps on falsely claiming I am "censoring him" despite me leaving intact many of his notable quotes no matter what they are. I've already explained to him that I won't remove any notable quotes. He must stop with his false bad-faith accusations

Jedi3 has been constantly edit-warring despite being warned by admins and told plainly some of his quotes aren't memorable and seem to be only meant for POV-pushing. While criticising me, Kalki criticised Jedi3 as well tating the biases are leading to "lapses of both logic and fairness".

Also after he failed to prove his quotes as notable, he keeps on falsely calling them eloquent, poignant, witty, pithy etc despite me already explaining to him at Talk:Somnath temple as well as Talk:Aurangzeb that his quotes don't even fit within the dictionary definition of what he keeos calling them.

Also persistent history of Jedi3's edit-warring from the history of these articles: [21], [22], [23], [24], [25], [26], [27], [28].

Jedi3 again reverted me with false claims. Despise the argument over even one of his quotes never being resolved, he used the false reason "see talk" to add back his non-notable content. He could only add it back, because I decided to let it go. However, he used false claims like he had some victory in the argument over the quotes.

Here are his reverts, [29], [30], [31], [32], [33].

In some of these cases there were only one quote or the quotes were not as Jedi3 had added them. Despite pointing out so, he doesn't accept it.

He has edit-warred even after being warned and blocked in the past. Right after UDScott warned him, he still kept edit-warring at multiple articles: [34], [35], [36], [37], [38], [39].

Jedi3 was blocked by UDScott for a week. But he resumed edit-warring: [40], [41], [42].

This is not his first time making false claims, his made-up and unrelated quotes: [43], [44], [45]. Despite me pointing out with original sources and teh quotes themselves about his false claims in these edits, he still refuses to accept it, see his denials despite being exposed: [46], [47]

His vandalism has caused a lot of disruotion especially as it prevents me from adding quotes and making useful contribution. :Here are the quotes I added at Aurangzeb: [48], [49], [50] and [51]. Also at the same time, Jedi3 kept edit-warring, sapping most of my time in dealing with his constant edit-warring. I told him not to edit-war while calling for cooperation. He didn't listen. See [52], [53], [54], [55], [56], [57], [58], [59]. Also same thing has happened at Noakhali riots. He kept edit-warring over one non-notable quote that i removed and in the process also kept removing the notable quotes I added. these are my additions: [60], [61] and [62]. I went away for some time as I can't keep editing forever. Then Jedi3 tried to edit-war here as well, impacting my quotes in the process as well.: [63] and [64]. This despite his removed quote only being one in number.

Also Jedi3 keeps claiming Template:Remove: "Quotes should never be removed without a comment in the edit summary, and should almost always be moved to the Talk page with a note that they were removed from the article, giving full reasoning."

It is also clear, that Jedi3 hasn't bothered to verify his quotes from the original sources, and is just adding based on whjetevr he reads especially from hindutva-leaning authors. just recently he showed thew truth of his edit process, when at Babur, I couldn't find the quote Jedi3 added I simply shifted it to disputed before it could be verified. Only after I said so, Jedi3 bothered to verify it, however it isn't exactly the book of the Hindutva-leaning SR Goel claimed: [65]. He has shown the same behavior of not verifying his claims: In the last part of my comment here, I pointed out with the original sources he used for a quote that it is not about Muhammad bin Qasim. He however has refused to accept his wrongdoings about it: [66], [67]. Similarly, at Talk:Sikandar Butshikan, he indirectly admitted to copying quotes from Wikipedia without checking if they're true when I pointed out his quote doesn't exist in the orignal source.

It says almost always should be moved. Regardless I tried to move and discuss in the past but there was no result. He even abruptly stops discussion in the middle. Notice the time difference between his subsequent comments at Talk:Somnath temple (24 days), Talk: Aurangzeb (6 days), Talk:India (4 days). The last article India wasn't even related to our dispute, yet he started repeating the same claims he made at the noticeboards and other talk pages there.

Please block this disruptive edit-warring vandal immediately. MonsterHunter32 (talk) 16:48, 19 April 2018 (UTC)

Someone should also tell Jedi3 Wikiquote is not Wikipedia. You should not link a Wikipedia policy like Maintain WP:STATUSQUO during discussion. Only add link of a Wikiquote policy here.

I suggest he also read from the same Wikipedia policy of STATUSQUO says that if your edit is reverted you should discuss instead of reverting - "Similarly, if you make an edit which is good-faith reverted, do not simply reinstate your edit – leave the status quo up, or try an alternative way to make the change that includes feedback from the other editor."

If Jedi3 can disprove what I said about his quotes, then no problem. But he won't stop edit-warring and keeps making bad-faith disruptive edits. I can't do anything anymore about it. His latest edit-warring reverts: [68], [69]. It seems he is hell-bent on getting either of us blocked. MonsterHunter32 (talk) 19:46, 20 April 2018 (UTC)
