Specific wikis


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 reports[edit]

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.

Add a new report



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

This IP is flooding Wikiquote's Recent changes with vandalism and creating numerous fake user pages with sock templates. I just asked stewards at IRC to temporarily block him, but it might take a while. ~ DanielTom (talk) 11:11, 12 March 2015 (UTC)
