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.


Spambots are to be reported on this page. New reports should be added to the top. Reports may be purged after one week.

Spamming. Over 20 identical unsolicited talk messages, as per Rev precedent. When I fall, I'll weep for happiness 05:40, 2 June 2011 (BST)

I find it particularly funny that you brought this case considering you voted not vandalism on the case I linked to.--Yonnua Koponen T G P ^^^ 11:59, 2 June 2011 (BST)
I don't have to agree with it now I have zero responsibility for what happens with it. When I fall, I'll weep for happiness 13:27, 2 June 2011 (BST)
Is it of note that he didn't even sign them? -- †  talk ? f.u. 05:03, 3 June 2011 (BST)
Not really, other than it makes it obvious that they were all copy'n'paste jobs that he never even bother checking before moving on to the next page -- boxy 11:53, 3 June 2011 (BST)
This is nothing fucking like the bullshit “Rev precedent” and is everything like the Codename V and Mr. Krabs cases. (^5 Yon! And people need to learn to fucking link shit.) ᚱᛁᚹᛖᚾ 01:41, 8 June 2011 (BST)

There have been times when we've allowed some advertisement of events on group talk pages, but given the quality of the content I don't think this tends to apply. vandalism -- ϑanceϑanceevolution 08:28, 2 June 2011 (BST)

Vandalism but the Dezonus precedent case is better than the Rev one.--Yonnua Koponen T G P ^^^ 10:35, 2 June 2011 (BST)

I've just remembered that it was ruled Not Vandalism for some fucked up reason, despite the fact that it is identical to this case.--Yonnua Koponen T G P ^^^ 10:37, 2 June 2011 (BST)

Vandalism -- Cheese 10:57, 2 June 2011 (BST)

Pretty sure box has soft warned me before for trying to bring the remnants of Ghetto Cow together for an anniversary strike.

At least that idea had merit!--You rated this wiki '1'! Great job, go hog wild!||||||||||||||||||||||||||| 11:09, 2 June 2011 (BST)

Vandalism -- Spiderzed 11:47, 2 June 2011 (BST)

Warned -- boxy 11:53, 3 June 2011 (BST)

Spam reverted where applicable -- ϑanceϑanceevolution 11:58, 8 June 2011 (BST)

You missed 19 of them. :P Aichon 21:36, 10 June 2011 (BST)
I think he's got all of the ones where the groups haven't responded.--Yonnua Koponen T G P ^^^ 21:54, 10 June 2011 (BST)
More or less. Or ones like, say, the one on SoC where you added {{unsigned}} to his post, aichon -- ϑanceϑanceevolution 03:50, 11 June 2011 (BST)
:P I just figured you'd have removed them all. Aichon 04:04, 11 June 2011 (BST)
