Maliciously increasing the image in question below to 1500px totally destroying any chance of reading the page. In short, being a spammy troll. -- Cheese 22:46, 29 May 2008 (BST)

Oh can I rule on this case like you and Hag do for your own cases? And if you bothered to check I'm the one that actually removed the image in the end. So shove this little report up your ass. --– Nubis NWO 22:50, 29 May 2008 (BST)

Stop being such a self-righteous bastard. You're the one that blatantly spammed the Misconduct page. We have precedent for users who vandalise then remove their vandalism getting warned. -- Cheese 22:58, 29 May 2008 (BST)

Meh, it was up there for, like, 3 minutes before the image was removed altogether by Nubis. Not vandalism, but only because it was removed so quickly... but don't do it again, please Nubis -- boxy talki 00:05 30 May 2008 (BST)

Continually editing and vandalizing my post. --– Nubis NWO 22:26, 29 May 2008 (BST)

There is a big difference between making a point and breaking someone's page. My monitor make not be as high techly awesome as yours and as a result, it totally and utterly breaks it. Keep the image, but at the very least have some consideration for us on a limited budget when it comes to computers. -- Cheese 22:29, 29 May 2008 (BST)
your post consists on an huge image with text on it. There is no need for it to be cluttering the discussion. In several other occasions images have been switched to links to the image PAGE because they served little purpose or evidence in the cases they were added to. --People's Commissar Hagnat talk - mod 22:30, 29 May 2008 (BST)
You have no right to edit my posts. Where does it say that you can change the size of an image to fit your screen? --– Nubis NWO 22:32, 29 May 2008 (BST)
And where's the rule that gives you the right to fuck up an official misconduct case by sticking a 640x480 image onto the page just purely to make us all seem like stupid fucking retards because we can't tell the difference between an image and a page. It has no bearing on the case at all, and as a result, doesn't need to be anywhere near that big. -- Cheese 22:35, 29 May 2008 (BST)
There is also no rule that says i cant make nubis image into a link... wouldnt that be me exercising my best discretion on a case-by-case basis ? Nubis image serves no purpose in an administraion discussion, therefore i simply removed it from the page while still poiting to it --People's Commissar Hagnat talk - mod 22:38, 29 May 2008 (BST)
I have more of a right to post an image than ANY of you have to edit my post! That's for goddamn sure. And 640 x 480 is hardly huge. It clearly matters since none of you can tell the difference ! Otherwise this whole thing would have been ignored! PAGES /= IMAGES! It's like talking to a fucking brick wall here! SHUT THE FUCK UP HAGNAT! --– Nubis NWO 22:40, 29 May 2008 (BST)

well, if images are not pages, than so arent categories, and templates, and special pages... OW BOY, with no governing rules to edit special pages i am free to write whatever i want in them :D --People's Commissar Hagnat talk - mod 22:43, 29 May 2008 (BST)

Large images and templates have always been removed (and resized or replaced with a link) from admin pages like A/VB and A/M. If you want to mess around like that, take it to the talk page. Not vanadalism. And please provide diff comparisons rather than simply a link to the page. The edits in question were buried in the history -- boxy talki 00:12 30 May 2008 (BST)

repeatedly censoring my guide despite my repeatedly telling him to stop. --The Grimch U! E! WAT! 15:24, 29 May 2008 (BST)

Hmmm...this is a tricky one. On one hand you have the fact that he was actively editing Grim's user page and reverting Grim's attempts to revert him. However on the other hand you have the fact that Killerzkings is virtually a complete newb on the wiki (first edit was on Tuesday) and as a result is unfamiliar with how things work. On this occasion I am going to rule Vandalism, mostly because of his reverting the revertings and continuing to do so despite being asked twice to stop. Especially considering the "You have New Messages" prompt is actually pretty noticeable. -- Cheese 15:39, 29 May 2008 (BST)

Considering the creation time was 01:36 and the entire suggestion consisted of dffd, I don't think it was going to be a serious suggestion, or even one that was going to be finished. -- Cheese 14:46, 29 May 2008 (BST)

Blanked this group page that he had not previously edited. Couldn't find an indication that he has any claim to it.--– Nubis 01:08, 28 May 2008 (BST)

I'm going to go with not vandalism. The page was last edited about a year ago so it could be he was thinking he could blank it and it would go up for deletion automatically kind of thing. :/ -- Cheese 01:11, 28 May 2008 (BST)
He has done this to a few pages that he has never edited. Actually, I'm not sure why you didn't report him for this incident. And why are you voting not on a "2nd" incident?
My concern now is are we allowed to retro actively punish him for those previous incidents since it is clearly a vandal history or if we have to give him a pass on them since "we missed" them. --– Nubis 02:46, 28 May 2008 (BST)
Hazard Genocide Radio (cur) (last) 12:45, 18 May 2008 Nitro378 (Talk | contribs | block) (Its called a deletion request.) perhaps he is affiliated with the group? I'm not sure on the others, meh.--  AHLGTG THE END IS NIGH! 02:55, 28 May 2008 (BST)
There are better ways to make deletion requests with pages that you have no ties to. Given the fact it was repeated and theres nothing to indicate he was ever a member of the group, Vandalism. --The Grimch U! E! WAT! 03:07, 28 May 2008 (BST)

He's trying to clear the Roftwood page of inactive groups by the look of it. Seems like he just doesn't know better, and it's a pity someone hasn't had a word with him before about using the deletions page instead of just wiping them. I don't see any bad faith in it, just ignorance of the procedures... if it happens again after he's been told the right way to do things however... -- boxy talki 03:32 28 May 2008 (BST)

The only pages I request for deletion are the ones that I have personally made with this wiki account, or my former one N dG. In the future I will go about with the proper procedure that you have explained. As for removing idle/dead groups from the Roftwood page, I will let you know that I did not do so in ignorance. For the past two years I was the admin of the Roftwood Co-ordination Center forum. We have about a total of 20 or so groups participating. Many of these groups had dissappeared from both the forum and in game. Is there a process in which inactive/idle/dead groups need to go through in order to be removed from the "active" groups list that I am unaware of?--Nick Nitroz 15:16, 28 May 2008 (BST)
Removing the group's icon from the suburb page is just a matter of editing that suburb. There is no procedure for that. Our concern was you blanking pages. That is a common tactic for vandals. Is there a reason you are no longer using the N dg account? --– Nubis 22:37, 28 May 2008 (BST)
Actually, him being that user (N dG) completely absolves him of any vandalism charges. As you can see here, the page was created by him and its kind of a round about way an author blanking his own page. -- Cheese 23:03, 28 May 2008 (BST)
We don't know that he is N dG though, do we? Do we have a Check User on N dG that we can compare to this account? If that is his account (N dG) why not blank the page with that account? This would be a creative new way to get out of vandalism charges. --– Nubis 00:11, 29 May 2008 (BST)
Erm...no...we don't. Check user doesn't go back that far. All we need to do is ask him to make an edit with N dG on this page and bingo, you have confirmation. Also, maybe he didn't like the name? :/ I have to admit, N dG is a pretty lame name compared to Nick Nitroz. -- Cheese 00:17, 29 May 2008 (BST)
Here I am, Nick Nitroz on the N dG account. I apologize for the confusion and will resign from using this account ever again. I also pledge to use the proper deletion process rather than simply blanking pages. --Nick Nitroz 00:29, 29 May 2008 (BST)
There you go Nubis. Case Closed. -- Cheese 00:35, 29 May 2008 (BST)

Vandalism - What is it with people and trying to make their rival groups look stupid? It's easily fixed and at most it'll be around for a day before getting wiped of the face of the wiki and they'll more than likely get told off for it. -- Cheese 00:23, 28 May 2008 (BST)
Also, confirmed sock of User:Airheadoh. As a result, I'd like some input from my fellow sysops on this case. Is it a ban for this guy and a warning for the main or just a warning for both? -- Cheese 00:27, 28 May 2008 (BST)
meh, there is little reason to ban him... just link both accounts in vandal data. --People's Commissar Hagnat talk - mod 00:43, 28 May 2008 (BST)
Cheese - I'm with you on this one. If he is going to make sock accounts to do his dirty work then they will never be "redeemed". He should lose the sock account and get a warning or whatever level he is up to on the main account. This isn't a rookie mistake.--– Nubis 22:52, 28 May 2008 (BST)
The Detective Ice account was only used for vandalism and creating a user page (which the main account edited anyway), so I agree. The sock is banned, the main gets the warning -- boxy talki 12:01 29 May 2008 (BST)

due the great amount of users involved in this case, its asked to carry any discussion in the talk page. Thank you -- The Administration Staff


Karek (talk | contribs | logs | block | IP Check | vndl data | discuss)

On my user page under the topic of "If you're not aware...", in a talk having absolutely nothing to do with him, Karek decided to spam it with 3000+ characters of writing "TEXT" over and over again, a la Real Gamerz, followed by a little snap at me. This both was spam of my user page, as well as meant only as harassment. When a sysop (Cheeseman) told him what he was doing was wrong, he called him a hack. Karek's vandalism of my page is at the very least flamebaiting, harassment and trolling. When this is decided, I can erase this all from my user page. Thank you.--Tselita 14:10, 27 May 2008 (BST)

Being rude is not vandalism, trolling is not vandalism, or saromu and cyberbob, along with much of Redrum would have been banned long ago, and harrassment, well, since you are an active participant in this disupte, the majority of the conflicts within it being ones you started, it doesnt count as harrassment (Especially since this is the only thing you have decided to bring him here for. and everything else he says there is in response to crap you brought up rather than being antagonistic for the sake of being antagonistic). As was subsequently pointed out, he was making an object point on the hypocricy in how you call all long posts trolling, yet your long posts somehow arent. You were also informed of this repeatedly before you brought this case, yet you still went ahead. Not Vandalism. If you really want him to go away, try arbies before we get it fixed. --The Grimch U! E! WAT! 14:18, 27 May 2008 (BST)

Please explain how fixing spelling makes your comment "harder to notice". --Cyberbob DORIS CGR U! 10:08, 24 May 2008 (BST)
Actually in that example he's not fixing the spelling, he's altering it to its phonetic pronunciation. As we all know, 'pwn' is '1337' or 'leet' for 'own'. The spelling in '1337' came about from the common mistype on the standard QWERTY keyboard. By changing this spelling he's actually misspelling Finis' message in the language it was written. This could, therefore, set an unhealthy precedent. -- To know the face of God is to know madness....Praise knowledge! Mischief! Mayhem!

The whole thing is fucking petty... petty vandalism. In any event, changing PWN to PAWN changes the meaning.

Tselita (talk | contribs | logs | block | IP Check | vndl data | discuss)

Didnt want to do this since she provoked a confrontation, but id like to report her for impersonation, specifically for taking one of my posts on her page (Essay length) and inserting her own responses after each paragraph. This not only breaks up the flow of my post, removing much of the intended tone, but also strips all but the last segment of my signature which, given the length of the post, means that its unlikely some of it will be attributed to me, especially if each individual section gets its own response tree (Not going to happen now, but its something that can and does happen). The comments will be divorced from me and, since they were written as a whole and intended to be read as such, placing a signature at the end will further bury the intended tone as a signature hits a comment in much the same way as a sentance hits a full stop, wheras these were inteded to be one long continuity. I tried simply moving her comments out of my response, in an attempt to resolve the issue without bringing this here, (Leaving a comment that my reply would be forthcoming and explaining that breaking upm my post strips ot of its flow) however she moved them back in. She then later had a sook and deleted our active conversation before i could reply to all the shit she was heaping on me. I guess that last is her right given her talk page, but its frustrating when you try to discuss something with someone to work out a problem when she seems to have a bee in her bonnet just because she thinks im are out to get her because of one close call that they came out on the wrong side of. Suffice it to say, the deletion of the discussion does not in any way absolve her of her conduct before this.

Also, the following sysops are not welcome to rule on this case: Conndraka. I do not trust his impartiality. AHLG. Too inexperienced.--The Grimch U! E! WAT! 01:36, 23 May 2008 (BST)

Not Vandalism - Not in bad faith, however Tselita should please stop doing that, it's really annoying and makes it hard to follow things. You can use Quotes / "Quotes" / Quotes to break up individual sections. I think I'm echoing others when I say that you need to stop doing that. There is also A/A if you're having problems with eachother. Lastly, I'm too inexperienced and inept to comprehend the last part... durrr (there are at least 10 other able sysops, quiet the feck up). --  AHLGTG THE END IS NIGH! 02:01, 23 May 2008 (BST)
First off, you don't get to specify who can and can't rule on cases, Grim, especially totally uninvolved parties. This is a thing that should be handled in arbitration really, but Tselita, seeing as you're here, you've been asked (and agreed not to) before, you should know damn well that it's not acceptable. If you'd have inserted some signatures (copies of grim's from the bottom of the post) to make it clear where grim's paragraphs stopped, and your replies began, you may well have a case for doing it, but as it is, you forced your replies into the middle of his text, orphaning chunks of them so no one could tell who wrote what. Vandalism for mine -- boxy talki 02:10 23 May 2008 (BST)
Not vandalism - it's her talk page, it's her rules for repying. She is properly identing her comments, it's not that hard to figure who is saying what, specially for those involved in the discussion. Also, kudos for grim for closing tselitas suggestion while she was typing it, using gnome's vote as an excuse... rules exist, but one must learn when they need to be enforced, and that was not the case. And, yay, you are barring gnome from ruling on a case for inexperience... then how the fuck is he supposed to get experience ? --People's Commissar Hagnat [cloned] [mod] 02:29, 23 May 2008 (BST)
In response. 1: Just because its a persons talk page doesnt give that person the right to chop up and orphan other peoples posts. Its been ruled previously that impersonation isnt allowed on your own talk page. In response to 2: Hooray, you like slander better than fact. As for 3: AHLG can get experience on many other cases present. Since he hasnt looked into the history of this case, or the users involved, he made a bad call. You made the same bad call, while boxy, whom i dont particularly like, actually saw the whole of the story and came up with a conclusion based on that (Given his comment). In that way i at least respect him, regardless of which way he would have ruled on it. --The Grimch U! E! WAT! 02:42, 23 May 2008 (BST)
I dont like slander better than facts, but i do notice how everything in this discussion could've been avoided if you had removed that stick from your ass and started acting like a human being towards other users, specially in the suggestions page, which is where most of the newbies first edits are. --People's Commissar Hagnat [cloned] [mod] 02:48, 23 May 2008 (BST)
I'm laughing. You're drawing conclusions that I don't look at the history of the user. I read Talk:Suggestions and have also read Tselita's talk page. Stop assuming I know nothing. It's a bad habit that needs to stop, and I do not feel it is necessary to officially warn someone for such a thing, at this time. Maybe I'm not a hard ass like you, but I happen to be lenient and try not to be an anal retentive user (most of the time, dam mudkipz).--  AHLGTG THE END IS NIGH! 03:02, 23 May 2008 (BST)
How many times are you going to let her do it before you officially warn her? Is there a magic number? She's been told not to do it and she did it. --– Nubis 04:06, 23 May 2008 (BST)
If she does it again. This vandal report has already served its purpose, she should get it now. I guess a soft warning, if people feel it's right. --  AHLGTG THE END IS NIGH! 04:09, 23 May 2008 (BST)
You didn't really read any of her comments in the link or follow any of her "discussions" on Talk:Suggestions do you? She invented a grudge against Grim and others because they disagreed with her suggestion. Most of the comments are people pointing out the same things over and over because she ignores them (like she did when she was told not to break up posts the first time). She doesn't seem like she is going to "pick this up" from a soft warning. Remember [this?] Did you see [this?] She needs to be told the same answers by multiple people before she gets it if she ever does.
I don't want to be a hardass on this, but I want something done that will actually help the situation.--– Nubis 22:15, 23 May 2008 (BST)
I read my own talk page, no worries. It's pretty obvious that she's in a conflict with some other users, but I don't think it is necessary to warn her for a bad editing habit. A last resort... it may take a few tries for her to stop. I don't believe she is specifically doing this just to piss Grim off (it could be a contributing factor, I don't read motives). Her justification was It's my page, and with your insanely long posts, the easiest way for me to respond to each of the thousand things you post is to take it one-by-one. My page - my rules, just like your page - your rules. , page ownership is not good justification though, but I can't say her reasoning for responding in that manor is bad faith. This is just incredibly petty, it's just annoying. Vista, Dux, boxy etc put up with me and others for be annoying tards, but we certainly shaped up fine. --  AHLGTG THE END IS NIGH! 00:29, 24 May 2008 (BST)
As a sysop, and as someone involved in the case here I'd just like to say a few things. Firstly, it is increadably close to call. Admittedly Tselita should not have broken up Grim_s argument, I think we can all agree on that, and as I pointed out to her that can be construed as vandalism. However there are some mitigating circumstances that realy make me hesitate to call this either way, firstly I beleive that Tselita was under the impression that her talk page was her area where she could enforce her rules as she saw fit, which as we all know does not stretch to altering someones posts to make it look like they said something they didn't. Now, secondly Tselita was not making a bad faith edit, she was merely (unwisely maybe) structuring her reply in a manner that she wished. Seeing as she signed the individual posts I think its safe to assume that Impersination wasn't her aim, nor misrepresentation, though of course no user should ever mess with someone elses post. While this may very well fall into the category of vandalism, seeing as Tselita was not acting in bad faith, and the entire conversation appears to have been deleted I'm going to appeal to Grim_s' better nature and ask that he either drops the thing altogether or takes it to arbitration. All that I can see happening if this is pursued is an argument between different sets of sysops over the finer points of talk page ownership/editing peoples comments that will no doubt go on for ages and more bad blood between Tselita and Grim_s. Where's the fun? I geniunely beleive that Vandal Banning is not the place to settle this dispute over what is, quite frankly a very small issue that I would quite like to see remain a small issue.--SeventythreeTalk 03:25, 23 May 2008 (BST)

Vandalism. She has been doing that very thing (breaking up replies) for a while on the talk:suggestions and has been told not to do it. She acknowledged it and said she wouldn't do it again and now she is. That first incident was the "good faith" freebie. This is clearly vandalism. And given the drama of the topic and the profile of Grim I don't want to see people posting her words and using them against Grim later on because they couldn't tell they weren't his.
There are cases brought up against people for impersonation on the talk pages. So you are wrong Conndraka when you say it's your talk page and you are free to do whatever you want. --– Nubis 03:44, 23 May 2008 (BST)

They wouldn't be posting her words and attributing them to Grim, because she signed all her posts. There is a case where people may mistakenly think that what Grim said could be attributed to her (because she failed to insert anything indicating that Grim had posted the first few paragraphs below her sig), but not the other way around. There may be a case for her being allowed to split up posts (on her own talk page), but she's got to make it clear who said what -- boxy talki 03:54 23 May 2008 (BST)
Ah, her being mistaken for Grim is almost punishment enough! I agree that she needs to acknowledge what are his words and what are hers, but if she copied his signature that would CLEARLY be impersonation. The point is she has been told not to do this before, she did it again, that means an official warning is needed. --– Nubis 04:06, 23 May 2008 (BST)
I disagree, copying someone's signature and placing it on part of what they said if it gets split up isn't impersonation. It is attributing something that they actually said at that actual time (I've done it when people forget to sign when they make multiple replies on a page)... but the more I think on it, the more I see the problems with splitting up posts and replying in the middle. Like Grim said, it has the real potential to throw what was said down the bottom out of context. I don't know that she did it in bad faith, but it's got to be made clear that this is unacceptable, even if she doesn't get an official warning this time. Use quotes Tes -- boxy talki 04:17 23 May 2008 (BST)
Normally I'd agree, but this isn't exactly a wiki-life threatening habit, is it? --  AHLGTG THE END IS NIGH! 04:07, 23 May 2008 (BST)
Well neither is blanking pages but we warn/punish people for that all the time. That's not a good argument. So, what do you consider "wiki-life threatening"? Which rules do you want to follow? I'm curious so I can tell the goons it is open season because AHLG won't vote them vandalism because he doesn't like that rule.--– Nubis 22:15, 23 May 2008 (BST)
Don't take wiki-life threatening too literally, a bad faith edit doesn't need to asplode the wiki for it to be vandalism. See above. --  AHLGTG THE END IS NIGH! 00:29, 24 May 2008 (BST)

Not vandalism She indented each paragraph to make it obvious that it was of a different source than what had been posted. I've done the same myself (although not on the wiki that I can recall) but I normally Italicize the original script. Two more points: 1 Her talk page, 2 assuming good faith as is mandated somewhere along the lines. Now show me where you have the authority to prevent me from ruling on a subject that falls under my responsibility as a sysop. Note to Sysops other than Grim, if such a designated power does exist, consider this an amicus curiæ rather than an official ruling. Conndrakamod TDHPD CFT 04:57, 23 May 2008 (BST)

You are ignoring the facts that 1. [Precedent] was set here that you can't alter things or impersonate people on your talk page even in jest. 2. She was told not to do it before. Doing something again that you were told not to do is clear cut BAD FAITH. You can't defend that. You can not claim good faith or "she didn't know any better". --– Nubis 22:15, 23 May 2008 (BST)
What I am saying is that unlike some people, I can actually tell where she broke up the post to reply to it. Had she not indented the replies then Yes it would be impersonation/vandalism, but she made a clear effort to differentiate between her and Grims text. And as far as Precedent is concerned.. I'm tired of hearing about precedent. Sometimes a wrong decision of the past needs to be reevaluated on its own merits. Even the Supreme Court of the US has made major changes by setting aside precedent and reevaluating a circumstance/case. Several instances come to mind readily. Conndrakamod TTBA CFT 01:28, 24 May 2008 (BST)
Furthermore in your [Precedent] The individuals in question purposefully put another users signature in place of their own. Tselita did not, she simply inserted her own comments into the statement. Again, she could have done a better job of it, but she did make the effort. Conndrakamod TTBA CFT 01:35, 24 May 2008 (BST)
The precedent was against your claim that "your talk page is yours to do what you want with". Which includes rearranging people's posts which is what happens when you break up someone's post. It's like trying to talk to Tselita here. It's all going in circles because you selectively ignore the facts.--– Nubis 00:15, 25 May 2008 (BST)
That precedent is a pretty good example of "do what you like on your own talk page"... the dead guys actually got let off for signing with someone else's name because it was their talk page -- boxy talki 01:50 25 May 2008 (BST)
Let off because Kid Sinister was taking Vista to arby with Karek as the mediator, Vista was going to step down soon anyway, there were 3+ pages of discussion on it, they were never given the 1 week to change the "violation" and it was a very petty case in the first place. Just to clarify - there is a 1 week window allowed on accidental/good faith impersonation. The only reason I voted this case vandalism in spite of the 1 week to change it is that she had been told not to do it before which for me removed the good faith. If she hadn't have been told before don't do this, then I would have said "give her the week to put it all back" (or delete it). I do hope someone links this on her talk page so she knows her next time won't be forgiven. Ironically, this is becoming a Grim/Tselita sized wall of text on its' own. --– Nubis 02:18, 25 May 2008 (BST)

Not Vandalism, unless maybe by User:Grim_s - who state's in his own essay that he's intentionally creating a "wall of text", IE making a post that is needlessly difficult to reply to. That's border line trolling, and seems close to a bad faith edit, as it goes against the entire intent of a "talk" page. The fact that she replied in irregular form to what she likely (and perhaps reasonably) would have seen as a bad faith troll posting on her own talk page, should hardly itself amount to vandalism.
Nor does "breaking up" the flow of logic matter much to what is essentially a private talk where, in own User:Grim_s's text, he states that the main purpose of the "flow" was to cause a flood. This is not a precious Gutenberg text she hit with crayons; it was a argumentative personal message she dealt with in a less time consuming manner than the OP would have wished for. SIM Core Map.png Swiers 08:24, 23 May 2008 (BST)

Sweirs, you have no idea how happy i am that you have decided to equate being wordy with trolling. So, whats the upper limit on how wordy a person can be without being a troll? 10,000 char max? 9,000? 8,000? 7,000? Id really like to know that line so i can avoid it in future. In defense of the long post, i had a lot to talk about and a lot to respond to. combine the two and you invariably end up with a mini novel. If i had wanted to pad that up, i could have hit 50,000 characters quite easily. My post was broken up into paragraphs which made it readable. If you want unreadable, check out her posts on talk:suggestions in her nailgun suggestion, specifically the one where she simply went in one long unbroken line of text (Wrapped automatically by the software) alternating between quotes from me and responses from her, the only difference being italics on the quotes. That was nigh unreadable. The intention of that post was not to flood, and i was genuinely suprised it ended up as long as it did. Of course, i dont really expect you to believe me. After all, as with tselita, your assumptions of my motives simply must be more accurate than anything i say about the issue, because im a mean person and all, and i say bad things about people and argue forcefully until weak posters cry and run away. *rolleyes*--The Grimch U! E! WAT! 11:06, 23 May 2008 (BST)
If Tselita feels she is being trolled she can delete Grim's message altogether as it is her talk page. However breaking it up and creating ambiguity as to what was written by whom is impersonation. Ruling this as NV would create a total double standard as to what is impersonation. You are basically saying that as long as the person who left the message had bad intentions you can do what you like to their post.--xoxo 08:28, 23 May 2008 (BST)
The post she replied to is more than a page long on my 900 x 1440 px monitor with a small font setting. I can't see his sig from its top even BEFORE she inserted he replies. Thus, the ambiguity exists in the original post.
I'm not saying "anything goes", but when the reply itself is less offensive than the original post, its hard for me to support the OPs claims of vandalism, especially when they rest more on technicalities and form than on intent, and have no impact on the wiki at large.
But yes, I AM saying that if you act an asshat, you can't expect me to support vandalism claims on those actions when the person doesn't follow every nicety in response.

I wasn't aware it served any other purpose :P . I'm just concerned that should this be ruled NV it opens up new opportunities regarding what people can do on their own talk page. And while yes, grim's post was far from the correct way to do things Tselita had the total right to delete it altogether, it's not like Grim would be convinced or change his ways from what she said. It was a pointless argument and i feel this could result in people thinking they have even more rights on their own talk page, allowing them to break up and move people's posts around.--xoxo 08:48, 23 May 2008 (BST)
Those ruling have made it clear that they're ruling according to the specific circumstances of this case, so it's not as if some inviolable precedent is being set, and anyway the entire idea of precedent ruling future cases is nothing but an argument that is used sometimes - it's not enshrined in any policy. Each case unto its own merits. Those ruling may want to note that this sort of wiki-lawyering approach to undermining and attacking a disliked user (and abusing A/VB in the process) has been used in the past by Grim when he tried to have Nalikill thrown off the wiki for using his personal template. --Funt Solo QT Scotland flag.JPG 10:52, 23 May 2008 (BST)
Tselita frequently argues positions that cannot be defendable so instead, he throws up huge blocks of text in an attempt to browbeat his position on things. Grim at first replied nicely, I read it Funt. I also read that you need to get off your white horse, apparently you have some issues with Grim. This is not the first time I have read you bitching about Nalikill. I suppose if the situation was reversed and Grim was facing VB, you would be all for it. So what is your take on Tselita's repeated wall of text spam? Is it ok 'cause you think she's female? Those ruling may want to note that this sort of wiki-lawyering approach to undermining and attacking a disliked user (and abusing A/VB in the process) has been used in the past by Grim * Your hypocrisy is amazing.

Summary - this has been going on long enough. The ruling is Not vandalism (with 2v, 4nv rulings), with most (all?) sysops agree that while this was not bad faith, it was bad formatting of a reply, and that this ruling in no way legitimises the splitting up of other peoples post and replying in the middle of them.

Damn...:( I missed all the fun. Not Vandalism - It is her talk page and, as a result, is free to reply to comments as she wishes. It is not impersonation because no changes were made to Grim's post bar the dividing up of it. She clearly indented each reply to show that it was a separate comment and one needs only to look at each section to tell its from Grim. However, due to Tselita being warned before about it on Talk:Suggestions, I will rule Vandalism on the next occasion of this occurring and ask that she doesn't do it again. The only reasons I'm not on this one is because it is her talk page and because it was a huge essay worth of post from Grim.

Not Vandalism - No, he's been silly. There isn't any humorous policy vandalism thing either, and he isn't being all the disruptive of administration process. The policy is a paradox, it ignores itself, thus it won't do anything if it passes... or fails. --  AHLGTG THE END IS NIGH! 03:18, 20 May 2008 (BST)
So any user can make any "silly" policy for fun? Why is the suggestions pages stricter than the administration policy pages? --Amanu Jaku 03:20, 20 May 2008 (BST)
If they start abusing it to the point of absurdity, then no they cannot. There's a rule on the suggestion page and not on the administration page, just how it is, I guess. --  AHLGTG THE END IS NIGH! 03:40, 20 May 2008 (BST)
Properly developed, such a policy would not be stupid. Id like to leave it and see what happens.

Vandalism - the same way silly suggestions are treated as vandalism, silly policies are also treated as vandalism. Silly vandalism reports are also vandalism per se, the same wat silly deletion requests are also called as vandalism... you are NOT supposed to joke in administration pages, as it's a waste of time and jorm knows this well... --People's Commissar Hagnat [cloned] [mod] 03:45, 20 May 2008 (BST)
Since I've even said as much in the policy - that people making stupid policies should be punished - I am more than willing to take a bullet for this. I shall be the martyr of the stupids. However, I believe I shall only be required take punishment if the policy passes.--Jorm 04:01, 20 May 2008 (BST)
If you made it a serious policy preventing those policies along the lines of what Grim was talking about, it'd make sense. It's just that recent change shoved it firmly into the realm of a waste of time. --Amanu Jaku 04:07, 20 May 2008 (BST)

Not Vandalism It's a discussion. It doesn't violate anything on [here]. You can't seriously be suggesting punishing him for a rough draft of a policy that he has 3 days to change and discuss? Seriously? Are you trying to punish him because he suggested something you don't like? --– Nubis 10:02, 20 May 2008 (BST)

this is not a discussion in the open discussion section, it's a policy discussion, therefore anything there should be taken seriously, and if we had to define this policy, serious it wouldn't... stupid policies are already forbidden, therefore his should be considered an act of vandalism... please, use some good ol'common sense... i have spoken with jorm and he agreed to be punished... and how can i dislike this policy ? it's a fricking joke! I would have took part of it if i wasnt so busy here at work :( and the fact that i enjoyed it doesnt change the fact that i must do my job once it had been reported for vandalism --People's Commissar Hagnat [cloned] [mod] 12:39, 20 May 2008 (BST)

Not Vandalism on the following grounds. IF properly refined it could actually form the framework of a policy that could (if used properly) prevent future policies from being suggested that are either over the top bad, or simply as a matter of fact out of the ballpark for this particular wiki even if the proposed "stupid" policy is accepted protocol on other wiki's. I know that wasn't Jorm's intent, but we live in a post modern world now. Go figure. Conndrakamod TDHPD CFT 06:51, 21 May 2008 (BST)

Disturbingly, that is my intent. However, I enjoy leaving the details of such things to other people. I just want everyone to use common sense.--Jorm 07:23, 21 May 2008 (BST)
Would you mind then reverting the current edit and work toward making a serious anti-stupidity policy? Mainly I would hate to have people start seriously creating policies that would add stipulations should they fail. --Amanu Jaku 08:47, 21 May 2008 (BST)

A lot of discussion has been moved to the talk page (way to long, even if some of it was relevant). Not vandalism, but pushing the limits with that last "if this fails" addition. If you are going to make a serious policy out of it, please fix it up asap -- boxy talki 11:42 21 May 2008 (BST)

Both sides have had very good points and its taken me a while to come to a decision, but with precidents already established, namely, that people who dick around with administration pages get warned/banned (It happened in deletions for deletions, it happened a fair bit to Nalikill). Given the latter part of the policy, which stated that it would impede the creation of new policies in the event of a failed vote (Though policies do not get implimented if they fail, so it was kinda pointless) indicate an attempt to dick with the administration of this wiki, and is thus vandalism under all existing precidents we have regarding the issue. This sucks, because i really really like Jorm (This was why i didnt rule earlier, and gave myself some time to come to a conclusion, FYI). Id really like for you to turn it into a serious policy Jorm, but if you are just going to come here to pop one liners to antagonise other users and screw with the system, then you may as well not come here at all. The system is broken, WE GET IT ALREADY. People are morons, WE KNOW. Change doesnt happen just because you decide to throw a wrench into the works, all that does is break the machine without providing for a new one. --The Grimch U! E! WAT! 02:24, 22 May 2008 (BST)

My main concern about ruling this Vandalism before the 3 days were up was that I wanted to give him the benefit of good faith and (probably naively) believed that the policy could be worked into something decent like I and others suggested. His behavior has shown that he isn't interested in that. I had hoped that the discussion wouldn't get too derailed and I believed making him a martyr would have done just that.
On the other hand, I don't think a warning for vandalism for this will really do anything to change him. (not that I think you shouldn't punish the incorrigibles, but since there isn't a clear cut policy on this like there is on the suggestions page, for example, I think trying to quickly rule vandalism and whipping up a precedent is a bad idea.)
I think we should build on [this] idea so that we have a clear policy and punishment in place (with more than a slap on the wrist) so we aren't going through this again. I don't want the wiki to "take itself too seriously" and act like not treating policy discussion with the utmost respect is forbidden. Or have it try to control the users beyond maintaining a semblance of order. But I don't want to wade through any more policies and discussions like the last ones that caused this. --– Nubis 12:05, 22 May 2008 (BST)
Are you seriously calling me an "incorrigible"? Seriously? You say, and I quote, I don't want the wiki to "take itself too seriously" and act like not treating policy discussion with the utmost respect is forbidden and write that?--Jorm 22:56, 22 May 2008 (BST)

Altered [this] policy discussion page during the discussion instead of submitting a new policy. The new policy is very different from what was originally on the page and not just a "minor" edit. If this isn't vandalism then the current discussion should be closed at least and the idea resubmitted since it has radically changed. I think it is a "bad faith" edit set up to be used as a weapon to attack other users. Especially since he changed the policy to fit the "examples" he provided. --The Malton Globetrotters #99 DCC SNACK STRONG 19:56, 18 May 2008 (BST)

The aim of the policy is the same as it was originally: to promote tolerance by outlawing intolerance. The entire point of policy discussion is to shape a policy into something the community may find acceptable, and that is all I've done. The majority of the new wording is that of another contributer to the discussion and therefore cannot have been "changed ... to fit" by me, as DCC is spuriously suggesting here. --Funt Solo QT Scotland flag.JPG 20:47, 18 May 2008 (BST)
Since this case was brought, it's been changed again, by the way.

Not Vandalism - Policies can be completely rewritten if necessary and discussion can take place on the rewrite. The whole point is to reach a consensus that will be accepted by the community. -- Cheese 22:19, 18 May 2008 (BST)

Zombie, thanks for blocking this guy, but I don't do these kinds of these things. I use AOL and the ip is from AOL. I wouldn't wory about changing it back anyways, as this is New York City (or the AOL browser just gave him an NYC ip to use or w.e) and a million people can use proxyauthority.org or order dynamic ip to get on.

You started doing minor edits that were heading toward vandalism, and then suddenly after you are on the vandalism page "someone from your exact same IP" came on and started doing vandalism while you were nowhere to be found? I doubt it. Can we get another sysop to help out here before we have another vandal "pop up on the same IP"? --Amanu Jaku 06:02, 12 May 2008 (BST)
Ummmm, no, I occasionally did stupid things, almost negligible, a while ago. It was over a month ago. Is it too much to believe what I've told you? The only bad faith edit I've had was the one below in this whole month. Look, zombie didn't ban me. He might have his reasons. I was nowhere to be found? I told you I was reading the whole thing! Dude, I quit vandals in late February when I got a 24-hour ban and then I got another one a month later for some stupid thing with my CTRL+V and sandbox malfunction or w.e. It's a long story, kinda.

This is unacceptable: ProofIoncannon11 20:55, 9 May 2008 (BST)

Not Vandalism - in the summary he says Any groups feeling they have been wronged should reaffirm their presence by replacing their link,,, which is what you should've done, instead of bringing him here. --People's Commissar Hagnat [cloned] [mod] 21:01, 9 May 2008 (BST)

He has no right to remove things. Would you like me to remove status updates for every suburb and ask those believe they were wronged to repost? That's absurd. He should NOT have done this. Ioncannon11 22:35, 9 May 2008 (BST)

Status updates are reviewed in a weekly basis (once a month in the worst case sceneario), while group listings... well, i have seen some burb's list group i've known to have been disbanded for almost a year already.... so that tells a little about how often this lists get updated. I can agree that his doing can be considered poor form (he could've contacted the groups before removing them from the list), but still not bad faith, thus not vandalism. --People's Commissar Hagnat [cloned] [mod] 23:36, 9 May 2008 (BST)
Indeed, those suckers get WAY out of date, and they are also placed on the page with no timestamp and in a spot that makes them hard to locate and remove. I'd like to see that whole bit overhauled, although I'm not personally sure what would make an improvement. SIM Core Map.png Swiers 00:42, 10 May 2008 (BST)

I disagree, this is bad faith. Good faith would be checking to see if group wiki pages have been updated regularly then if no, posting a message on the talk page then clearing. Bad faith would be removing all groups but two (even those that were updated 2 days ago) and not even telling them on their talk pages.--xoxo 01:07, 10 May 2008 (BST)

Poor form != Bad Faith... did you even read what i wrote above ? --People's Commissar Hagnat [cloned] [mod] 01:49, 10 May 2008 (BST)
yeah i did and i agree sometimes they sit for the ages. But its very very easy to look to see when a groups wiki page was last updated and make a judgment for that, if you're wrong thats fine but to delete a very active group...now that is bad faith. Anyway maybe a warning and a message explaining the correct procedure will discourage him from it in the future.--xoxo 01:53, 10 May 2008 (BST)
  • Extractor Hacked -Disbanded
  • Luelinks Survivors -Not seen in ages, likely disbanded
  • Scarletwood Police Department -Not seen in ages, likely disbanded
  • Evil Avatar -Believed to have moved on from Scarletwood
  • MFD -According to the other resident groups of Scarletwood that are still around, they only come by once in a while to spraypaint their group name in the Fire Stations.
  • CMS -Again, they haven't been seen recently in Scarletwood

In fact, the only group I felt unsure about was Ioncannons group, but they have not been see, I have not seen them, nor have the other residents. Just making a wiki update does not mean you have an active group in the suburb. I would have liked to have written all the above in the summary, but there is not space for that, which is why I wrote for groups to reaffirm their presence if I was wrong. - W 16:20, 11 May 2008 (BST)

Striking of votes here for no good reason. Until there is something permitting the removal of votes from such things, all votes must be considered of equal weighting.

Grim, use some common sense. If a user's first edit to the wiki is on a Policy Vote, then it could be one of two things: a) A user who has been lurking without editing for a while, as some do. b) A user account that has been created just purely to make that vote and then abandoned. As all three of the votes I struck were made by users possibly created today (the day the policy just happens to go under voting) then there is a rather high chance of that being b). It is possible to see the account creation time on wiki software as account creation does show up in Recent Changes on Wikipedia. I stand by my vote striking as I believe that those accounts were created for the sole purpose of that vote and will barely be used again. -- Cheese 20:03, 8 May 2008 (BST)

As has already been clarified in the Karek/Hagnat case, no user should be striking for meatpuppetry. How can this therefore be used as a justification for striking votes to advance your own side? --Grarr 23:37, 8 May 2008 (BST)
Please do not assume that I am ruling to advance my own side. Opinions differ, just because some user thinks that meatpuppetry should not be a valid reason for striking does not mean that I share this opinion. Striking a suspected meatpuppet vote should be treated with caution and I think that Krazy Monkey made a foolish decision doing so, I don't however, believe this was done in bad faith. --  AHLGTG THE END IS NIGH! 04:19, 10 May 2008 (BST)

Not Vandalism - given the lack of any policy, or precedence on the issue, I feel that it was simply a mistaken view that this type of striking was allowed, and the unstriking of a couple of votes when some of the users concerned put a case forward showed that there was no ill will in it -- boxy talki 04:44 9 May 2008 (BST)

As far as i can see he didn't deliberately continue after becoming aware that people didn't agree with his actions. A soft warning and offical if he does it again would seem sufficient.

Not vandalism This is an edit conflict. If it belongs anywhere it belongs in arbitration. Loosermass thinks that some of the pages would be more aestheticly pleasing, and more open to imagination without some of the images. He may well be right in some cases, though I don't think he should have removed all the images he did. Apart from the fact that editing pages in the way he has been is not vandalsim I would much rather work this out with him either in arbitration or on my talkpage than ban a user for editing the wiki! --SeventythreeTalk 10:22, 5 May 2008 (BST)
Not vandalism It's an edit conflict, and i'm inclined to agree with the reported user. These images only pollute that page, as they don't follow a similar aesthetical pattern, nor have their copyrights defined... and seeing this a community owned page, copyright is an issue there.
