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 and patrollers have the rollback tool that enable them to quickly revert edits by a particular user, and admins 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.

See also Project:User ban nominations. Archived threads are at Wikivoyage:Vandalism in progress/Archive.

@SHB2000, I see you're online, they're adding more articles Tai123.123 (talk) 05:43, 28 November 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Yes Done Was doing some things on Commons, and so wasn't checking RC. Thanks for notifying :) SHB2000 (talk | contribs | meta.wikimedia) 05:48, 28 November 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Thanks for doing the admin actions I can't do. Tai123.123 (talk) 05:51, 28 November 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Keep in mind that if an admin is not around, you can always ask a global sysop to do it at m:GSR. They'll usually do any non-controversial admin actions. SHB2000 (talk | contribs | meta.wikimedia) 05:56, 28 November 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@SHB2000 Thanks for the tip, I hope to one day become admin so I can do these actions myself Tai123.123 (talk) 06:04, 28 November 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Telstra? I can’t tell. --Comment by Selfie City (talk) (contributions) 00:23, 3 May 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

No. This is not his type of edit. Ikan Kekek (talk) 02:01, 3 May 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
He never does copyediting and the only time where I've seen him do that is in Special:Diff/4403623. SHB2000 (talk | contribs | meta.wikimedia) 10:14, 3 May 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
OK, that’s what I figured. Thanks guys for confirming. --Comment by Selfie City (talk) (contributions) 10:47, 3 May 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Nonsense page creator

Blocked and deleted his articles. Thanks for bringing this to our attention before he did more damage. Ground Zero (talk) 04:06, 15 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
You're welcome! Roovinn (talk) 05:56, 15 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]


  • Special:Contributions/Camp Lejeune doesn't appear to be here for positive reasons. Roovinn (talk)
    • No. They could be blocked, but I assume it is a throw-away account, whose owner never memorised the password. I don't know whether it is better to block it for the record or not to block it to keep blocking less frequent. Blocking it could block their IP address, which might be useful (if it is their own), useless (if they'll get a new one for their next edits) or harmful (if it is one of a public computer). –LPfi (talk) 10:21, 15 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
