Wikivoyage:Vandalism in progress
Please read Project:How to handle unwanted edits to understand what is vandalism to Wikivoyage.
Anyone can help handle unwanted edits on Wikivoyage. A couple of bad edits can be reverted quickly and easily by the first person to see them. See How to revert a page to see how to do this yourself.
However, administrators have some tools that enable them to quickly revert edits by a particular user, and also to temporarily block repeat offenders. Use this page when you need assistance from an administrator, for example when vandalism is occurring at a rapid rate or over an extended period of time. Or even if you have been managing a vandalism attack but are now going offline.
Please list the IP address or user name (use the format [[Special:Contributions/Username|Username]] or [[Special:Contributions/IP Address|IP Address]] as the header), pages touched and damage done. Sign your name using ~~~~ after your report. Put the person's IP or username in the edit summary.

- I've applied a three month block as this account is already blocked for longer than one year on Wikipedia - w:Special:Contributions/18.104.22.168. -- Ryan • (talk) • 21:16, 9 February 2014 (UTC)
The user was repeatedly trying to advertize business URL's on the WV Main Talk page as well as their own page. I blocked them already for a day, although please let me know if I should not have been too hasty in this instance. Andrewssi2 (talk) 12:55, 11 February 2014 (UTC)
- The one thing I'm wondering about is, correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't see any content in Sonika's user talk page. I think it's important to tell this user why their account is being blocked. Ikan Kekek (talk) 13:51, 11 February 2014 (UTC)
- Thanks User:Saqib for doing that. I will place a message going forward, although I'm guessing this particular user's motivation wasn't to contribute travel advise. Andrewssi2 (talk) 02:24, 12 February 2014 (UTC)
I'm fairly sure we have a commercial vandal on Seminyak: []
- Absolutely. I have a suspicion, based on circumstances and timing, that this user is User:Leticiaangeline's IP. I strongly urge everyone not to act based on any assumptions. However, if anyone can establish that beyond a reasonable doubt, User:Leticiaangeline should be blocked permanently and his/her remaining villa listing in the Canggu guide should be deleted, with its URL blocked permanently.
