Report vandalismVotes for deletion

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 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

Please report vandalism by creating a new report by clicking one of the two buttons below. Be sure to include the username/IP address and the behavior that requires admin intervention.

Adding misinformation to pages. Ilovemydoodle (talk) 16:01, 17 May 2022 (UTC)

E.g.? Can you provide some diffs that are misinformation? —Justin (koavf)TCM 17:17, 17 May 2022 (UTC)

Blocked. I'll leave it up to you to revert as needed. —Justin (koavf)TCM 17:46, 17 May 2022 (UTC)
Already did (mostly, some couldn't be reverted). – Ilovemydoodle (talk) 17:47, 17 May 2022 (UTC)
Why did you disable his/her Talk Page access? – Ilovemydoodle (talk) 17:51, 17 May 2022 (UTC)
That's just standard for me, no particular reason. —Justin (koavf)TCM 18:00, 17 May 2022 (UTC)
Well, isn't that bad practice, because it means that anyone appealing has to go through the UTRS system? – Ilovemydoodle (talk) 18:22, 17 May 2022 (UTC)
Probably, but since most of the blocks I do are long-term abusers, then it's usually irrelevant. —Justin (koavf)TCM 18:26, 17 May 2022 (UTC)
What do you for regular users? – Ilovemydoodle (talk) 18:28, 17 May 2022 (UTC)
Allow talk page access. Sometimes I goof. —Justin (koavf)TCM 18:32, 17 May 2022 (UTC)

Deletionism and improper formatting. Ilovemydoodle (talk) 17:09, 17 May 2022 (UTC)

Not done: I just posted to his talk. Please report again if there are problems. —Justin (koavf)TCM 17:17, 17 May 2022 (UTC)

GRP. Ilovemydoodle (talk) 17:29, 17 May 2022 (UTC)

Blocked. —Justin (koavf)TCM 17:45, 17 May 2022 (UTC)
Thank you. – Ilovemydoodle (talk) 17:46, 17 May 2022 (UTC)

New report 2022-05-17, 22:16Edit

GRP sock. Ilovemydoodle (talk) 22:17, 17 May 2022 (UTC)

He has no edits yet. Is this based on other edits on other projects? —Justin (koavf)TCM 22:27, 17 May 2022 (UTC)
No, it's based on his username. – Ilovemydoodle (talk) 22:29, 17 May 2022 (UTC)
@Koavf GRP has a habit of making account with name intended to offend Antandrus, can you block the user just for the name? – Ilovemydoodle (talk) 23:01, 17 May 2022 (UTC)
I don't see how it's offensive. —Justin (koavf)TCM 23:10, 17 May 2022 (UTC)
Well, this GRP sock has a very similar name. – Ilovemydoodle (talk) 23:25, 17 May 2022 (UTC)
Antandrus just reported him to SRG. – Ilovemydoodle (talk) 23:38, 17 May 2022 (UTC)

New report 2022-05-17, 22:29Edit

Potentially GRP. Ilovemydoodle (talk) 22:53, 17 May 2022 (UTC)

No vandalism yet. —Justin (koavf)TCM 22:55, 17 May 2022 (UTC)
It could be GRP, I'll wait. – Ilovemydoodle (talk) 22:56, 17 May 2022 (UTC)
If someone has an offensive username, it's worth blocking before any edits. Otherwise, there's no action here until the user actually commits something block-worthy. —Justin (koavf)TCM 22:58, 17 May 2022 (UTC)
Antandrus said to block him. – Ilovemydoodle (talk) 00:05, 18 May 2022 (UTC)
It's ok - that's just a throwaway IP from his VPN. He's unlikely to get the same IP again soon. Antandrus (talk) 01:11, 18 May 2022 (UTC)
@Koavf Can you block though, just in case? – Ilovemydoodle (talk) 01:15, 18 May 2022 (UTC)
Brief followup - not wanting to give away too much (since he follows this page) - He made this edit five minutes later - same VPN, different IP, so he isn't going back to the previous IP. On enwiki I usually block them all for six months, but it doesn't really matter; he probably has thousands of IPs available. Antandrus (talk) 01:18, 18 May 2022 (UTC)
Ok. Also, do you what VPN(s) he uses? – Ilovemydoodle (talk) 01:20, 18 May 2022 (UTC)
I don't want to block an IP for not-vandalism. —Justin (koavf)TCM 01:25, 18 May 2022 (UTC)
