IP Vandals?[edit]

Hello! Thanks for welcoming me earlier, I've only just signed up with a formal account here. I have a quick question- what is the Wikiquote policy on somebody vandalising from an IP address? I just noticed Drawn Together had been blanked, and reverted it, but I'm not sure what is supposed to happen next. *scratches head* With a named user I'd guess hunting for vandal templates, but I'm not sure if that works if the person doesn't actually have an account.

The typical practice for warning vandals, whether they're registered or IP, is to add one of the appropriate user warning templates to their user talk page. Typically, for the first warning of vandalism, {{test}} (or {{test-n}}, which takes the vandalized page's name as a parameter) or {{test2}} (or {{test2-n}}) are appropriate, depending on the severity of the vandalism. I usually use {{test}} only when it seems like the edit was only a test edit (e.g., something like "can I add stuff here?") and use {{test2}}. If they continue to vandalize, go up to {{test3}} or {{test4}}, and if the vandalism is widespread and/or persistent, you can post it to the Administrators' noticeboard for further action. —LrdChaos (talk) 15:52, 28 October 2006 (UTC)
