- It's a spambot. Sometimes they post the gibberish first, then add the links in in an additional edit. Just you wait. --Ross Less Ness Enter Stranger... 14:54, 17 December 2012 (UTC)
Deleted - I'd ban it too, but there's a chance to prove Ross wrong (it's gotta happen someday) -- boxy 08:07, 19 December 2012 (BST)
Crit 1 & pseudo-crit 5/13, but not based of a previous deletion. User:K4Anarky created a one-line talk page to the nonexistent page The Gingerbrea. If this isn't speedy, my apologies. Bob Moncrief EBD•W! 17:28, 2 December 2012 (UTC)
- C1 - thought it was my userspace... PB&J 20:52, 23 November 2012 (UTC)
C1 and C3. Stupid mistake I made. PB&J 19:04, 23 November 2012 (UTC)
Crit 7 by proxy. User does not exist and original creator has blanked the page. Gordon 13:06, 22 November 2012 (UTC)
- Slightly existed, but only remaining contrib was pageblank. Took out (blanked) talk page too. 13:16, 22 November 2012 (UTC)
Detritus after A/RE archive cleanup
Crit 1 as duplicated content that serves no purpose. None of these pages are linked from anywhere, so they've never been well-maintained or updated. Moreover, their sole purpose was to consolidate the A/RE links for each sysop in a single place, but that purpose is now being handled by the new archive, so they're now duplicate content. —Aichon— 21:22, 19 November 2012 (UTC)
- I'd furthermore say that it is redundant to the existing R/E categories. Done. -- Spiderzed█ 21:48, 19 November 2012 (UTC)
Additional note: I have an A/MR to move pages to these names, so if the links suddenly turn blue, it doesn't mean that Spider's work was undone by someone or that this still needs to be processed. ;) —Aichon— 21:54, 19 November 2012 (UTC)
Crit 1,7... Not gonna need it anytime soon, etc... --Obi + 20:50, 18 November 2012 (UTC)
I'm cleaning up my profile, is it possible to get my userpage removed (as well as the discussions attached to it ?). – SadYear 19:53, 18 November 2012 (UTC)
- Why not just redirect it to the proper page? I'm sure some people would type this in looking for Samhain Slaughter 6(66). Bob Moncrief EBD•W! 20:09, 3 November 2012 (UTC)
- Verwijderd voor Kriterium Acht (gebruiker-plats kant). Tot ziens. -- Spiderzed█ 18:48, 27 October 2012 (BST)
Has has been blanked by one of the contributors who states the group has been dead for some time. Gordon 14:40, 27 October 2012 (BST)
Apparently an unused redirect, has had the speedy deletions tag on it for almost a month. Gordon 14:56, 27 October 2012 (BST)
The last three edits on that page contained personal information about an user. The compromised user had asked offsite to delete it. (The nature of the information is such that the user couldn't ask himself on-site without giving away that information.) Unfortunately I couldn't reach Aichon or Ross, so I had to come up with a quick decision of my own. I decided to rule in favour of privacy and against Aichon's talk page ownership, so here I am. The user in question has promised me to email Aichon ASAP, and I hope Aichon will share my decision. Please hold back with A/M until Aichon has been able to chime in. If he doesn't share my decision, I am as always open to the judgement on A/M. -- Spiderzed█ 16:57, 16 October 2012 (BST)
- I knee-jerk undid it, but I've since re-deleted the edits until we discuss here (actually, I botched re-deleting them, then did it properly). As per what Spider said, I've received a PM from user X on a third-party forum, as well as a few e-mails from X. They provide an IRC chat log of the request that Spider was acting on, as well as a rationale for why X asked that the edits be deleted. I'd be happy to provide a redacted version of the IRC chat log if anyone seriously doubts that Spider was acting on an actual request.
- On the surface, this seems like Spider abusing his power to remove something that is not personally identifiable, since it's just X's screen name. As a rule, we don't remove those, which is why I knee-jerk undid the deletion. That said, when I talked to X yesterday, X made it abundantly clear that they did not want their screen name associated with what was going on, specifically because they had reason to believe that The Smiths may target them IRL and that The Smiths would be capable of working out who they are IRL if they had X's screen name. That concern was clearly re-stated in the e-mails I received after Ross posted the name on my talk page, and was also evident in the IRC chat logs as well.
- To be honest, I'm inclined to consider the threat a credible one, since I've seen evidence that The Smiths have in the past both personally identified other players by their real life names and threatened physical violence against those players in real life. I also saw evidence of The Smiths threatening violence against X if they ever figured out who X was. As such, I'm inclined to let Spider's deletions stand.
- I'd also like to ask that, should any other sysops disagree, that they refrain from undoing the deletions until we can at least come to a decision, based on the nature of the problem at hand. —Aichon— 18:02, 16 October 2012 (BST)
Yeah, this sounds like a very reasonable thing. Keep on truckin, boys.14:59, 27 October 2012 (BST)

Criterion 1. The change from monthly to quarterly admin archive is effective since third quartal 2012. That make the July VB archive page unnecessary. All content that should have gone to that page has been moved to UDWiki:Administration/Vandal_Banning/Archive/2012_Q3, so no administrative records get lost. -- Spiderzed█ 18:43, 4 October 2012 (BST)
Created this one but I realized Im not really gonna need it. --Obi + 14:18, 2 October 2012 (BST)
