This page is for the reporting of vandalism within the Urban Dead wiki, as defined by vandalism policy. On this wiki, the punishment for Vandalism is temporary banning, but due to security concerns, the ability to mete out this punishment is restricted to System Operators. As such, regular users will need to lodge a report for a Vandal to be banned from the wiki. For consistency and accountability, System Operators are requested to note on this board their actions in dealing with Vandals.

Guidelines for Vandalism Reporting

In dealing with Vandalism, time is often of the essence. As such, we ask that all users include the following information in a Vandalism report:

  • A link to the pages in question.
Preferably bolded for visibility. If the Vandalism is occurring over a sufficiently large number of pages, instead include a time range of the vandalism attempt, or alternatively, a link to the first vandalised page. This allows us to quickly find the damage so we can quickly assess the situation.
  • The user name of the Vandal.
This allows us to more easily identify the culprit, and to check details.
  • A signed datestamp.
For accountability purposes, we ask that you record in your request your user name and the time you lodged the report.
  • Please report at the top.
There's conflict with where to post and a lot of the reports are missed. If it's placed at the top of the page it's probably going to be seen and dealt with.

If you see Vandalism in progress, don't wait for System Operators to deal with it, as there may be no System Operator online at the time. Lodge the report, then start reverting pages back to their original form. This can be done by going to the "History" tab at the top of the page, and finding the last edit before the Vandal's attack. When a System Operator is available, they'll assess the situation, and if the report is legitimate, we will take steps to either warn the vandal, or ban them if they are on their second warning.

If the page is long, you can add new reports by editing the top report and placing your new report above its header in the edit screen.

Before Submitting a Report

  • This page, Vandal Banning, deals with bad-faith breaches of official policy.
  • Interpersonal complaints are better sorted out at UDWiki:Administration/Arbitration.
  • As much as is practical, assume good faith and try to iron out problems with other users one to one, only using this page as a last resort.
  • Avoid submitting reports which are petty.

Vandalism Report Space

Administration Notice
Talk with the user before reporting or accusing someone of vandalism for small edits. In most cases it's simply a case of a new user that doesn't know how this wiki works. Sometimes assuming good faith and speaking with others can avoid a lot of drama, and can even help newbies feel part of this community.
Administration Notice
If you are not a System Operator, the user who made the vandal report, the user being reported, or directly involved in the case, the administration asks that you use the talk page for further discussion. Free-for-all commenting can lead to a less respectful environment.
Administration Notice
Warned users can remove one entry of their warning history every one month and 250 edits after their last warning. Remember to ask a sysop to remove them in due time. You are as responsible for keeping track of your history as the sysops are; In case of a sysop wrongly punishing you due to an outdated history, he might not be punished for his actions.

User:Zombieman 11

Blanking loads of random shit. Check his contributions. I issued a 2 hour ban to prevent him from blanking half the wiki while I cleaned up the mess and while we rule on the case.--Yonnua Koponen Talk ! Contribs 00:30, 13 August 2011 (BST)

Checkuser also confirms that HI is an alt of his, created immediately before the vandal spree. If he uses it to continue vandalising, I'll issue a perma to it.--Yonnua Koponen Talk ! Contribs 00:32, 13 August 2011 (BST)
If he does, the protocol is to perma the alt and issue a warning for it to the main, which would be his first ban coming into play. Nothing to be done! 01:25, 13 August 2011 (BST)
Nah, that only happens if the alt itself commits vandalism. Even vandals can have alts on the wiki, the only way this alt will be banned in this instance is as an extension of Zombieman's own 2 day ban. -- ϑanceϑanceevolution 01:57, 13 August 2011 (BST)
"If he uses it to continue vandalising". Put the Fosters down. Nothing to be done! 02:02, 13 August 2011 (BST)
:( -- ϑanceϑanceevolution 02:04, 13 August 2011 (BST)
Just for clarification, even if he isn't doing vandalism, if he edits with that account even in good faith it's still ban evasion and vandalism. That's why we ban the alts for the same amount of time (pretty sure we did it with corn a fair bit) -- ϑanceϑanceevolution 02:26, 13 August 2011 (BST)

Vandalism and ban this dipshit for 48 hours as next escalation. Unsurprisingly he isn't eligible for a descalation after his 24 hour ban. -- ϑanceϑanceevolution 00:46, 13 August 2011 (BST)

Really? Zombieman again? He must still be pissed that we removed his suggestion that was placed in the wrong place. Vandalism. --•▬ ▬••▬ • •••• •▬ ▬•▬• ▬•▬ #nerftemplatedsigs 01:10, 13 August 2011 (BST)

Vandalism. Even though I am so funny. Nothing to be done! 01:23, 13 August 2011 (BST)

Banned 48 Hours ~Vsig.png 01:39, 13 August 2011 (UTC)

Seriously guys... just do it, we don't need a committee meeting for obvious vandalism Tongue :P -- boxy 01:41, 13 August 2011 (BST)
Nice tag team action box. Oh and what he said. Temp ban was fine but after checking escaltion, this could have been an open/shut ban.~Vsig.png 01:45, 13 August 2011 (UTC)

Ban the alt for the 2 day period too? I'm pretty sure that's what we normally do. Thoughts? -- ϑanceϑanceevolution 01:58, 13 August 2011 (BST)

Meh. He would have used it by now if he was going to. If it edits during his ban period, shut it down. If not, you may as well leave it.--Yonnua Koponen Talk ! Contribs 13:14, 13 August 2011 (BST)

Just, ya know, perma this douche --hagnat 16:24, 13 August 2011 (BST)

Meh, trying to retroactively perma someone that has made it this far into escalation is messy. Best to just wait until his next spree. We can perma vote.then. Unless you think there was a case of vandalism that we all somehow missed. ~Vsig.png 18:11, 13 August 2011 (UTC)

This is my final post on this shitty ass wiki for a game nobody fucking plays anymore im sure you guys have enjoyed me but all good things must come to an end right with love zombieman 11.--Zombieman 11 05:09, 15 August 2011 (BST)

kthnxbai. ~Vsig.png 05:11, 15 August 2011 (UTC)

Are you done rambling? If you're gonna leave, then leave already. You don't have to keep saying you're gonna leave. I mean, you put this on yourself by ignoring our advice when we first had the impression that you were just a newbie. If you're gonna blame anyone, blame yourself. Now quit talkin' the talk and just walk the walk already. --•▬ ▬••▬ • •••• •▬ ▬•▬• ▬•▬ #nerftemplatedsigs 06:32, 15 August 2011 (BST)
