Scope of vandalism reporting[edit]

Are we supposed to report each and every incidence of vandalism? I've only bothered to list them here if they are especially obnoxious repeat offenders, because we can get many incidents in any given week of one-time vandalisms from different IPs. Reporting every one seems like it would fill up the VIP page without any real benefit, and also adds to the complexity of the anti-vandalism work. — Jeff Q (talk) 13:14, 12 July 2005 (UTC)

Sorry for delay, I missed your proposal somehow ;( I don't think all of use need to report all vandalism. In my opinion vandalism which would be reported here are

  1. all vandalism reported by non-sysop users, when they would like a sysop to pay attention.
  2. oscinating and therefore attention needed vandalism. Like AP in early days - to grasp his or her edit pattern.
  3. vandalism a sysop need community voice or he or she would like to the community aware in advance, like the latest Kalki's submission (in other words, "I'll block user:XX unless he doesn't stop his activity" type note")

By the way this page is grown - we need to create an archive or could remove the former entries? --Aphaia 20:30, 16 September 2005 (UTC)

I've done some work, however I want to get opinions (I'm asking on the general discussion page so more people'll see it) about archiving. 06:37, 26 February 2006 (UTC)


In a fit of archival, I've archived off everything from 2005 into it's own archive, and everything through August 2006 into it's own archive. Essjay (Talk) 03:41, 25 November 2006 (UTC)

Bug in the Vandal template[edit]

It looks like there is a problem if the username has a space in it, as in Major minor (talkcontribscentralauthpage movesblock userblock log), where the links to the page moves and the block log are wrong.--Collingwood (talk) 23:15, 14 March 2012 (UTC)

Yes check.svgY Fixed URL encoding in the template to accommodate names with spaces.[1] I can't do anything about miscapitalized names. (Cf. User:Major Minor.) ~ Ningauble (talk) 13:11, 15 March 2012 (UTC)


Hello. Can the old reports be archived so it's kept clean for users and administrators to report new incidents? Thanks! -- MarcoAurelio (talk) 11:06, 20 August 2019 (UTC)
