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.

^That. What do you think, guys? Perma? Seems to me it's the same guy from July below. --•▬ ▬••▬ • •••• •▬ ▬•▬• ▬•▬ #nerftemplatedsigs 00:54, 30 September 2012 (BST)

IP isn't a proxy. Geographically close to the July vandal, but with a different ISP. Fairly sure that it is the same vandal evading the July ban. Adding to that the naming pattern, we could alternatively bust him on the grounds of impersonation. -- Spiderzed 01:07, 30 September 2012 (BST)
I've added the other accounts detected by the checkusering. Will perma all of them. -- Spiderzed 01:13, 30 September 2012 (BST)
Can we add "AXE HACK" (all caps) to the Mediawikiblacklist? Or is that too far? Bob Moncrief EBDW! 02:36, 30 September 2012 (BST)
Yeah, I'm thinking we'll do that, as well as this ABIDEEN stuff. Aichon 02:55, 30 September 2012 (BST)
Welp, we almost made it one month without vandalism on UDWiki. Would have been the first. ~Vsig.png 02:43, 30 September 2012 (UTC)

Guess who's back... back again... --THE Godfather of Яesensitized, Anime Sucks Yalk | W! U! WMM| CC CPFOAS DORISFlag.jpg LOE ZHU | Яezzens 00:49, 10 August 2012 (BST)

Well you ops have less to revert now. You can thank me by putting Aichon in a sysop seat. ~Vsig.png 01:19, 10 August 2012 (UTC)

Sigh. What's a guy gotta do to cook dinner in peace? Actually, better question. WHY THE HELL AM I THE ONLY SYSOPS WHO IS BOTH EASY TO CONTACT AND IS ACTIVE AT THIS ONE MOMENT IN TIME?!?!? O.O --•▬ ▬••▬ • •••• •▬ ▬•▬• ▬•▬ #nerftemplatedsigs 01:24, 10 August 2012 (BST)
east coast bitch.--User:Sexualharrison01:27, 10 August 2012
Either someone's had a lot of spare time, Axe, or a lot of vandals are gay for you. You stud.--RadicalWhig 02:10, 10 August 2012 (BST)

Zombieman11paidtovandal, Bitchzombiemanhear, Zombieman11onlyvandalleft to add to this list as well. --RossWHO????ness 18:39, 10 August 2012 (BST)

About a billion more of these. I love rollback. One click banning and reverting is awesome. --RossWHO????ness 12:05, 11 August 2012 (BST)


Obvious vandal alt is obvious. --•▬ ▬••▬ • •••• •▬ ▬•▬• ▬•▬ #nerftemplatedsigs 01:41, 25 July 2012 (BST)


Please stop this monster. --Klexur 06:47, 21 July 2012 (BST)

Damn! --Klexur 07:10, 21 July 2012 (BST)

Someone likes you, evidently.--RadicalWhig 06:56, 21 July 2012 (BST)

Thanks Gentlemen, you did an excellent job of clearing up today's example of attention whoring. Permas all round.--RossWHO????ness 07:40, 21 July 2012 (BST)

I go away for one day... <_< --•▬ ▬••▬ • •••• •▬ ▬•▬• ▬•▬ #nerftemplatedsigs 19:43, 21 July 2012 (BST)


Seems someone doesn't like me. Got 'em all before they can do any real damage. --•▬ ▬••▬ • •••• •▬ ▬•▬• ▬•▬ #nerftemplatedsigs 23:37, 17 July 2012 (BST)

Plus 19, 20, 21, and 22... --•▬ ▬••▬ • •••• •▬ ▬•▬• ▬•▬ #nerftemplatedsigs 23:41, 17 July 2012 (BST)
Plus 23 - 40. Plus Ross fakes 0, 00, 1 - 40. Plus obvious vandal alt I PRAY TO GOD DO NOT BLOCK ME 1 - 16. Ross has suggested blocking the entire range of proxies this guy is using. All in favor? --•▬ ▬••▬ • •••• •▬ ▬•▬• ▬•▬ #nerftemplatedsigs 06:34, 20 July 2012 (BST)
Totes. --RossWHO????ness 12:33, 20 July 2012 (BST)
Do it.--Shortround }.{ My Contributions 16:06, 20 July 2012 (BST)
Only if you're absolutely 100% possitive you're familiar with range blocks. Maybe have Karek do it if you're not. If you're not careful, you can unitentionally block larger ranges than you intend. ~Vsig.png 16:50, 20 July 2012 (UTC)
^This --RossWHO????ness 18:21, 20 July 2012 (BST)
Also, so semi protections might be of help. --RossWHO????ness 07:41, 21 July 2012 (BST)
I've added the following CIDRs to the block list:, These are the net ranges owned by look.ca, a liquidated former ISP and webhost. They shouldn't be functional for home use at current since their actual ISP services have already been previously acquired by a separate company. This should stop this guy for the time being. --Karekmaps 2.0?! 17:29, 21 July 2012 (BST)
I am SO glad not to be the only one who understands CIDR any more. ᚱᛁᚹᛖᚾ 02:15, 1 October 2012 (BST)
When were you ever? You've had Karek or me around this entire time. :P Aichon 05:11, 1 October 2012 (BST)
On the sysop team, I mean. For a while both of you were resigned. Sad times. Sad ᚱᛁᚹᛖᚾ 05:55, 1 October 2012 (BST)


Page blanker, 3 edit rule. How adorable. Perma --RossWHO????ness 20:51, 16 July 2012 (BST)

User:Heecfyahoo.ca. Same vandal edits. Perma. And IP as well. And all those other accounts linked to the same IPs. --•▬ ▬••▬ • •••• •▬ ▬•▬• ▬•▬ #nerftemplatedsigs 03:13, 17 July 2012 (BST)


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