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

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.

Filing a false report and feeble excuses in an attempt to evade an inevitable block. DawgDeputy (talk) 20:00, 10 January 2021 (UTC)

Seems like he did a dumb joke but I don't think this is indicative of future vandalism. Seems fairly one-off. I say let sleeping dogs lie. —Justin (koavf)TCM 02:20, 12 January 2021 (UTC)

They made a page called Our law is your law which just has a YouTube link and no quotes in general. I say let them off with a warning and if anything bad happens subsequently, you block 'em! 17:58, 28 January 2021 (UTC)

Just said welcome. I don't think more action is needed but that page was obviously inappropriate. Thanks. —Justin (koavf)TCM 18:31, 28 January 2021 (UTC)

Trolling. See the IP's edits to random IPs' talk pages for details. DawgDeputy (talk) 23:11, 29 January 2021 (UTC)

@Saroj Uprety:

In its feeble attempts to assist everyone here against vandalism, it only adds to the problem by redoing vandalism, re-adding quotes in direct violation of quote limits, making a mockery out of me, unruly calling akko a bot without any evidence, false (and somehow personal) threats against another vandal (even sending such threats to a vandal is vandalism), etc. It has learned nothing from its previous block. I request immediate action be taken against this IP before it strikes again. DawgDeputy (talk) 23:17, 17 February 2021 (UTC)

Update: A sockpuppet IP is attempting to make true editors look foolish. (talkcontribsdeleted contribsWHOISGUCstalktoyRBLsblock userblock log)

Persistent vandalism. Hasley (talk) 02:22, 24 February 2021 (UTC)

@Saroj Uprety:

A long history of problematic edits and ignoring rules, and in trying to undo vandalism (or so he egregiously claims), he continuously adds to the problem, and mocks those who undo his edits. He constantly claims he would never add unnecessary emphasis to quotes again, but he constantly breaks that promise without any remorse (besides, he should never have vandalized to begin with). And fellow user Eaglestorm (a longtime model editor) will back me up on this one. I request this user be blocked for good and is denied access to talk pages.

Repeated vandalism. Daniuu (talk) 21:18, 6 March 2021 (UTC)

This is a content dispute but not vandalism. It's valid to write "NOOOO!" versus "No!". This should be discussed on talk and only constitutes admin action to the extent that it's edit-warring. That said, if you're going to submit his actions as edit-warring, I would think twice if I were you because edit wars generally involve more than one editor... —Justin (koavf)TCM 04:21, 7 March 2021 (UTC)

Changing "monster" to "monkey" in articles such as Monsters, Inc., Monsters University, Sesame Street, etc. all without explanation to boot. Not only do I request that the user be blocked for a long period of time, but that the articles it vandalized be protected indefinitely. DawgDeputy (talk) 23:43, 27 March 2021 (UTC)

I have blocked the anon IP for a month, at this point, but would block it longer if it resumes vandalism, and page protections could be for several months to a year, if vandalism to them resumes. ~ ♌︎Kalki ⚓︎ 01:13, 28 March 2021 (UTC)

Blatantly and inexplicably spreading misinformation (example: Changing debut years to mislead readers). DawgDeputy (talk) 23:28, 25 April 2021 (UTC)

The IP is at it again, spreading misinformation and refusing to explain its edits. Requesting long-term blocking and indefinite protection of all articles the IP vandalized. DawgDeputy (talk) 22:52, 1 May 2021 (UTC)
I have blocked this particular IP for a month — as clearly an iteration of a vandal manifesting a pattern of long term abuse with multiple IPs. I have not at this point placed protections on all the various pages vandalized. ~ ♌︎Kalki ⚓︎ 01:11, 2 May 2021 (UTC)

New report 2021-04-28, 01:17Edit

 N Not Done /16 is a huge range to block (the largest allowed by the software configuration) and there isn't enough editing from the range to warrant such a block --DannyS712 (talk) 08:57, 8 May 2021 (UTC)

Blatant misinformation on Shrek, Moon, and Toy Story, among other articles, and constantly tries to hide the fact that it is a vandal by trying to remove warnings. This IP needs to be blocked from editing (and denied talk page access) for a long period of time, and the pages it vandalized be protected for no less than that amount of time.
