Eleanor FarjeonEdit

Extensively vandalised by an account and an IP (presumably the same person). Neither has any other edits.--Abramsky (talk) 12:49, 29 January 2013 (UTC)

I reverted subsequent vandalism and sent user warnings. If this continues there will be blocks. ~ Ningauble (talk) 14:21, 29 January 2013 (UTC)
The IP is still at it! [1]--Abramsky (talk) 13:14, 25 February 2013 (UTC)

Nonsense articlesEdit

Several nonsense articles have been created by IPs and I have flagged them.--Abramsky (talk) 12:44, 12 February 2013 (UTC)

Yes check.svgY Done - I've deleted said articles. ~ UDScott (talk) 14:09, 12 February 2013 (UTC)

Vandal Mukburger 3Edit

Mukburger 3 (talkcontribscentralauthpage movesblock userblock log) really needs to be banned. ~ Daniel Tomé (talk) 00:03, 25 February 2013 (UTC)

Yes check.svgY Globally locked by the steward User:Tegel. Sock locked, IP globally blocked (also by Tegel). PiRSquared17 (talk) 00:35, 25 February 2013 (UTC)

IP keeps creating nonsense pages and stated that he just wants to "vandalize wiki quote". His IP needs to be blocked. ~ Daniel Tomé (talk) 23:02, 25 February 2013 (UTC)

Yes check.svgY Globally locked by the steward PeterSymonds, see also here. -- Mdd (talk) 00:03, 26 February 2013 (UTC)
FYI, there are significant technical and practical differences between a "global lock" on an named account and a "global block" on an IP address. ~ Ningauble (talk) 15:10, 26 February 2013 (UTC)
Thanks my mistake, there is a global block on the ip-adress (for 31 hours, see also here). -- Mdd (talk) 15:23, 26 February 2013 (UTC)


Repeatedly replaces pages with nonsense.--Abramsky (talk) 20:47, 8 April 2013 (UTC)

Thanks, I gave a last warning -- Mdd (talk) 20:50, 8 April 2013 (UTC) PS On 5 April 2013 I already blocked this anonymous users for 3 days.
This is a recuring pattern of vandalism that has been going on for a couple years. I generally block the IP for a month, on sight and without warning. This "Broadway vandal" seldom uses the same IP address for very long, but blocks do seem to give temporary relief. ~ Ningauble (talk) 23:05, 8 April 2013 (UTC)
Yes check.svgY Done Ok thanks. after new vandalism I have blocked this ip adress for a month. -- Mdd (talk) 10:39, 9 April 2013 (UTC)



Yes check.svgY Done - sorry I had stepped away for a bit for work. ~ UDScott (talk) 20:48, 21 January 2014 (UTC)
please disable talk page access. --~~Goldenburg111 21:18, 21 January 2014 (UTC)

IP (talkcontribsdeleted contribsWHOISGUCstalktoyRBLsblock userblock log) This user keeps removing the lines I added on the Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back page. AdamDeanHall (talk) 15:34, 23 February 2014 (UTC)

I could be mistaken, but this appears to be no ordinary vandalism, but a difference of opinion. In this case you should first try to discuss these things. -- Mdd (talk) 16:49, 23 February 2014 (UTC)
Actually, I believe that AdamDeanHall is correct - the changing (or sometimes removal) of lines of dialogue from the film appear to be incorrect. I believe that the version of the lines that AdamDeanHall is trying to preserve are the right ones. ~ UDScott (talk) 16:59, 24 February 2014 (UTC)
I've undone the changes and semi-protected the page. ~ UDScott (talk) 17:01, 24 February 2014 (UTC)
Thanks UDScott, could you check the other contributions as well, which might be just as doubtful. -- Mdd (talk) 19:11, 24 February 2014 (UTC) (talkcontribsdeleted contribsWHOISGUCstalktoyRBLsblock userblock log) This user has also removed the lines I added on the Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace page and replaced them with new unapproved quotes. AdamDeanHall (talk) 21:23, 24 February 2014 (UTC)

He has also vandalized the Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith page by removing the Galactic Empire dialogue. AdamDeanHall (talk) 22:10, 27 February 2014 (UTC)
Yes check.svgY Done ip address blocked for 1 month. -- Mdd (talk) 23:30, 27 February 2014 (UTC)

IP (talkcontribsdeleted contribsWHOISGUCstalktoyRBLsblock userblock log)

Adding nonsense onto talk pages and ignoring warnings. --Mr Wiki Pro (talk) 00:32, 15 March 2014 (UTC)

Yes check.svgY Done ip address blocked for 1 month. -- Mdd (talk) 00:35, 15 March 2014 (UTC)

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

 Y Blocked. ~ Ningauble (talk) 12:56, 18 March 2014 (UTC)

User: Steve Hand JobsEdit

Steve Hand Jobs (talkcontribscentralauthpage movesblock userblock log) He's vandalizing several pages or removing content --Nastoshka (talk) 12:33, 17 April 2014 (UTC)

Repeated vandalism to Chinese proverbs. --Ixfd64 (talk) 17:26, 25 August 2014 (UTC)

 Y Done. It appears to have been a one-day spree, so I just placed a short term block on the IP. ~ Ningauble (talk) 16:43, 26 August 2014 (UTC)
 Y Blocked. ~ Ningauble (talk) 12:50, 23 September 2014 (UTC)

The Real Pope Francis (talk · contributions)Edit

This appears to be a persistent and recurring vandal, who has used various names and IPs and should be blocked rapidly. Kalki··

 Y Done Thanks, I've blocked them. Pmlineditor (t · c · l) 16:41, 19 November 2014 (UTC)
