Wikivoyage:User ban nominations

From Wikivoyage
Jump to: navigation, search

User bans are put into practical effect by using a Mediawiki software feature to block edits to any page (except pages in that banned user's user talk namespace) by the banned user.

Add nominations for user blocks to the list below, but please do so only after reviewing Project:How to handle unwanted edits. After a nomination has been made, the nominator is responsible for ensuring that appropriate notice is given on the allegedly delinquent User's Talk page of the nomination made here.

In general the preferred way of handling problem users is through the use of soft security. In the case of automated spam attacks the Project:Spam filter can also be a valuable tool for stopping unwanted edits.

For a history of older nominations see Project:User ban nominations/Archive.

Outstanding nominations[edit]


This user is in a somewhat similar category to the Telstra vandal, except that what it does is post hotel listings without price and content, often in state-level articles, and has consistently ignored edit summaries and user talk page posts (see User talk:, and has already been blocked for 2 hours and then 1 day. I propose to block this account for 3 days this time, or whatever the usual period under the progressively longer ban is (1 week?). I fully expect to need to repeat this for a longer period of time after the suspension is over. Do I have agreement? Ikan Kekek (talk) 09:01, 31 March 2014 (UTC

Agree. I am tired of drive-by editors. Seligne (talk) 09:24, 31 March 2014 (UTC)
If I had to guess, this is a hotel marketer. Let's deal with the situation accordingly. -- AndreCarrotflower (talk) 21:06, 31 March 2014 (UTC)
Accordingly with how long a block? Ikan Kekek (talk) 02:38, 1 April 2014 (UTC)
