March 2014

User:Raining Fire

Blanked The Burchell Arms, The Burchell Arms Regulars and associated talk pages of both. Twice. ~Vsig.png 06:50, 12 March 2014 (UTC)

Warned -- boxy 04:17, 13 March 2014 (BST)
Dangit, boxy, I was in the middle of typing up a snarky warning when I refreshed the page and saw you beat me to it by a few minutes. Aichon 04:19, 13 March 2014 (UTC)

February 2014


That fucking string of ass piss again

For having, just, like the biggest scrotum. It's ungainly. It's probably the number-four reason why there is zero fun to be had any more, because its light-bending bulk is blocking out all of the available funlight. I recommend public frogmarching and/or solitary confinement with Kendra James. Throw the book at that silly motherfucker. We're coming to get you, Barbara 06:09, 15 February 2014 (UTC)

Jesus man. Just have it reduced. --Rosslessness 15:45, 18 February 2014 (UTC)
Hi. Aichon 16:11, 18 February 2014 (UTC)
hee hee. this is what I stick around for. lol-- HEY! HANDS OFF MAH BOOBS!   bitch   COBRA!  אמת03:53, 19 February 2014

He should get a soft warning for shitting up admin pages -- boxy 04:24, 13 March 2014 (BST)

Works for me, and seems suitable. I'll leave that one to you. Aichon 04:28, 13 March 2014 (UTC)

January 2014

User:Reddit survivors

Blanked the Reddit Survivors page. M.O. very, very similar to this 2011 case. Technically not a 3EV, but user was banned back then based on impersonation. -- Spiderzed 22:50, 29 January 2014 (UTC)

Definitely vandalism. Bob Moncrief EBDW! 23:09, 29 January 2014 (UTC)

Vandalism, worth a warning - Also worth noting, that previous case had quite a few misstatements. For instance, proxy use, in and of itself, is not a valid grounds for an escalation. It's merely cause for banning an IP address, and it's only if they're later discovered to be a banned user that we can escalate them for circumventing a ban. And banning him for impersonation seems a bit shady, to be honest. Aichon 23:49, 29 January 2014 (UTC)

While proxy use may not be vandalism in itself, when it is used by accounts like these (who do nothing but vandalism/impersonation), it can be considered as further evidence that the account is created with only the intent to vandalise the wiki. I wouldn't have a problem with either of them being deemed 3ER accounts, despite them (intentionally?) only posting twice. They violate the spirit of the rule, if not the letter -- boxy 10:08, 31 January 2014 (BST)
I'm not in favor of a 3ev ruling, as that's a rule that's very explicit and not really open to a "spirit, not letter" interpretation. Bob Moncrief EBDW! 01:44, 1 February 2014 (UTC)
Heh, that was a bit of a long stretch looking back. It probably should have been handled as ban/escalation evasion by Leo Decroix. The result would have been the same. Ban the alt, escalate the user if I'm not mistaken. Point is, someone (very likely Leo Decroix) created an account with the express intent to vandalize a group page. We've banned alt users under similar circumstances before (Cornholioo, Izumi, etc.) ~Vsig.png 20:32, 1 February 2014 (UTC)

Bump. Warning is still my thought, particularly since this guy seems to be a really infrequent vandal. Aichon 16:13, 18 February 2014 (UTC)

It would be really silly not to consider this ban evasion. Just my two cents. ~Vsig.png 07:35, 19 February 2014 (UTC)
This is a clear perma. Impersonation, ban evasion - pick your poison. Anything softer than that would be ridiculous. -- Spiderzed 14:35, 22 February 2014 (UTC)
Seems like I could go either way, but favor warning; boxy could go either way, but favors banning; you strongly favor banning; and Bob strongly favors warning. Where's Ross? Aichon 04:21, 23 February 2014 (UTC)
Use his talk page? ~Vsig.png 15:47, 23 February 2014 (UTC)

Warned -- boxy 04:42, 13 March 2014 (BST)


Spamming of multiple pages, including the News Template. Multiple other pages are listed under user contribs. I'll try revert some of these but this user needs to be dealt with. --Wez 19:52, 22 January 2014 (UTC)

And just as we were getting cozy... I have pre-emtively perma'd that one and all known wiki alts and IPs as obvious 3 edit vandal. Go and misconduct me. -- Spiderzed 20:02, 22 January 2014 (UTC)
Thank you Spiderzed, a quick response indeed! No argument here, that was blatant vandalism. Some people are just bad losers after all. --Wez 20:10, 22 January 2014 (UTC)
Hello, my name is Aichon, and I would vote Not Misconduct. Aichon 21:20, 22 January 2014 (UTC)
I now see how voting works, thanks Aichon. Excuse my ignorance. --Wez 21:31, 22 January 2014 (UTC)
Hmm? You're fine. I don't see anything here that could be construed as a vote on your part, and even if there was, we'd simply un-bold it and ignore it for the purpose of deciding what course of action we pursued. Aichon 22:25, 22 January 2014 (UTC)
Same, not misconduct. Oh, also vandalism on NOTREDNAG and alts. Bob Moncrief EBDW! 21:57, 22 January 2014 (UTC)


Has repeatedly vandalised the ZHU page by changing the appeal tinyURL from a link to the Resensitized forums to one to Something Awful. I request a perma as a 3-edit-vandal. -- Spiderzed 20:12, 8 January 2014 (UTC)

Perma - Seems pretty clear to me, but I'd rather not pull the trigger, due to past mistakes on my part. Any objections? Aichon 20:47, 8 January 2014 (UTC)
Perma'd as a 3ev. Bob Moncrief EBDW! 17:17, 9 January 2014 (UTC)
