Short term alerts & new vandals[edit]

Archives: 1[edit]

  • Blocked. Polyglot 10:52, 17 Jan 2005 (UTC)

%C2%A0 etc.[edit]

It would be nice to see this person grow up, anyway it has been reported. Hopefully something will be done about it. In the mean time we'll just revert the damage he causes. Polyglot 10:18, 18 Jan 2005 (UTC) and
At the moment, it looks like his mom told him it's time to go to bed - and to turn off that computer thingy. --Connel MacKenzie 06:17, 20 Jan 2005 (UTC)

Brian Merz[edit]

Thank you Eclecticology. --Connel MacKenzie 05:46, 23 Jan 2005 (UTC)

%C2%8F etc.[edit]

Jé Goolsby etc.[edit]


  •, Reverse dns points to and respectively. (Thailand.) Apparently in the practice of cutting-n-pasting from Looks like it could become a significant cleanup effort? Or is that OK for each individual entries because they don't have copyright in Thailand and/or can't read our copyright warnings?

Also, is this better placed in Beer Parlour? Tea room? --Connel MacKenzie 07:36, 12 Feb 2005 (UTC)

El Duccio del Kyratopia[edit]

If I'm wrong, I apologize (in advance), but I still want to draw attention to the stuff that's getting submitted by [1] and [2]. They smell fishy. What do we do about them? Polyglot 17:10, 13 Feb 2005 (UTC)

This chap is vandalising articles with false Kyratopia translations. SemperBlotto 19:49, 13 Feb 2005 (UTC)
It's comforting to know that I'm not the only one who never heard of this language. I already warned him (yesterday), if he keeps it up, I'll block him. Polyglot 19:55, 13 Feb 2005 (UTC)[edit]

User: wreaked havoc with unbelievable quantities of meaningless links, such as in Table. Havoc undone but the Table demands satisfaction. --HelloMrMe 05:45, 5 Mar 2005 (UTC)

This one keeps coming back, but appears to be some kind of spambot that uses a wide range of dynamic IPs. Eclecticology 01:53, 7 Mar 2005 (UTC)


User: is spamvilizing Homo. --HelloMrMe 01:55, 7 Mar 2005 (UTC)


User: is adding nonsense involving something called Gurnig, unwarranted praise of someone infamous, and some conspiracy involving a Wikipedia Admin. Mark4011 03:01, 25 Mar 2005 (UTC)

User: seems to be the same person, but is more covertly adding false definitions involving Gurnig into random existing entries. Mark4011 03:10, 25 Mar 2005 (UTC)

Thanks. Both ips blocked for 24 hours. Not sure if I got them all (you guys did most of the cleanup.) --Connel MacKenzie 07:57, 25 Mar 2005 (UTC)[edit]

User: is vandalizing pages by advertising via links. --Mark4011 06:19, 31 Mar 2005 (UTC) and[edit]

user: appears to be dumping junk in recent entries. --Dvortygirl 07:00, 10 Apr 2005 (UTC)

Tonight it's user:


Multiple inexplicable vandalism by Ph34R etc (Leet for fear). All vandalism is bounded by html comments so doesn't show up. What is he doing? SemperBlotto 19:56, 10 Apr 2005 (UTC)

Vandalizing pages. Why do vandals spray paint walls? Testing the random page feature, perhaps? --Connel MacKenzie 20:07, 10 Apr 2005 (UTC)
Sorry for the trouble I have caused. No, I'm not testing the random page feature, and I'm not a vandal. What I'm doing is neccasary. Ph34r is eating now 20:36, 10 Apr 2005 (UTC)
No, it's not. No justification, no warning. Hundreds of edits, (certainly not a "well behaved" bot!) Stop already. --Connel MacKenzie 20:49, 10 Apr 2005 (UTC)
Fine, I shall stop my activities here. Again, I'm sorry for the trouble I have caused, but it was neccasary. By the way, I am not using a bot. Ph34r is no longer eating 20:56, 10 Apr 2005 (UTC)
"Necessary"??? Bah! \Mike


User:TTYLyo505 blocked for 24 hrs - various suspect pages, either pseudo-agricultural or sexual. Some obvious vandalism. Please check all pages. SemperBlotto 07:15, 23 Apr 2005 (UTC)

Froogle vandal[edit]

Person with various anonymous IP addresses repeatedly changes Froogle to some sort of advert. Just a mild annoyance. SemperBlotto 09:32, 23 Apr 2005 (UTC)

Numeric rumanisation vandal[edit]

Several IPs contributing tons of numeric romanizations. See WT:RFD. IPs include:

Don't know how many more were used, but reportedly all were anon IPs. --Connel MacKenzie 04:40, 1 May 2005 (UTC)

I would like a Chinese speaker to weigh in on the conversation at WT:RFD...doesn't Chinese have one written language, but dozens or hundreds of spoken varients? These entries don't look entirely like they are entirely meaningless. I'm begining to regret blocking the one IP I did block for 24 hours. --Connel MacKenzie 05:54, 1 May 2005 (UTC)


User:24 is making archives of other users.―Gliorszio 19:24, 1 May 2005 (UTC)

Long-term alerts[edit]


  • User:Jandevries has returned to add a very explicit and disgusting picture. I'll ban him for a bit longer this time.
  • User:Jandevries created himself a new nick and came back as User:MyPecker. What are we going to do about this? I'll ban him again, but it's like carrying water to the sea. Polyglot 10:00, 25 Dec 2004 (UTC)
  • = Added goatse link to Request for deletion. Can *.cx be firewalled away? I think we can do without contributions from Christmas Island (and who knows, they may be responsible for the poor server performance recently. That's my completely unsubstantiated guess, anyhow.) --Connel MacKenzie 20:12, 10 Jan 2005 (UTC)
  • User:Mario Dinis Vandalized request pages tempates, added template "RfP" Request for pooperism. Admins please lock this starfrosch sock puppet account for ten years until he/she grows up. Added hello.jpg to templates. Can wiki ban external references? Christmas Island does not have any meaningful contributors, and due to their nature probably never will. See Special:Contributions Mario Dinis] WITH IMAGE DOWNLOADING TURNED OFF. --Connel MacKenzie 22:17, 13 Jan 2005 (UTC)
    I'm almost certain this is the same person who created Jandevries and MyPecker. I banned him for a very long time when he showed up as Jandevries. This was rather useless, since he simply created another nick and he was more visible as long as he used Jandevries.
    I tried to have banned through the effort that tries to stop recurring spamvertising. I was told that this blacklist was not meant for content we didn't 'like'. On top of that Jamesday told me he is fully aware of the content that can be found there. Apparently there are Wikimedia projects that do have valid links to this site.
    So I won't ask anymore and we simply have to keep deleting this kind of images, while at the same thime hoping no child or prude person has to be confronted/bothered by it. It's bad enough that the people who do happen to see it, have to be disgusted by it.
    I am going to ask that this be investigated further. Jamesday should be able to check from which IP-addresse(s) this guy is working. If they're not widely different, then we can ban him on a more permanent level (where it will become a lot more difficult for him to create another user account). Polyglot 07:59, 14 Jan 2005 (UTC)

Ass Pus/Pelican Shit/Bugger vandal[edit]

This vandal is a cross-project vandal, listed at m:Vandalism_reports#Pelican_Shit.2FAss_Pus.2FBugger.
  • User:Hìppietrail seems thoroughly fascinated with fecal matter and its inclusion on every page. Please block.--Alia H 08:47, 1 Feb 2005 (UTC)

User:Fuzzyballs did a mayhem of page-moves (including this one). Blocked for 24 hours and eventually undid mayhem. SemperBlotto 11:18, 27 Feb 2005 (UTC)

He returned as User:Fizzlebutt more mayhem. Blocked for 48 hours and undid mayhem. SemperBlotto 16:57, 27 Feb 2005 (UTC) Could someone else clean up next time please (there WILL be a next time)

Same for User:Twisted dick. Undoing mayhem now... --Connel MacKenzie 05:52, 28 Feb 2005 (UTC)

Despite User:DillyDoo's worthwhile contribution of Ass pus to the world's knowledge, perhaps he could use some time off for reflection and meditation. --HelloMrMe 07:56, 5 Mar 2005 (UTC)

Now most likely User:Dillyputty. This person is adding an offensive image to pages, and has moved Wiktionary:Vandalism in progress (this page) several times. Mark4011 21:51, 5 Mar 2005 (UTC)

Please. For the love of God. Stop Dillyputty. PERMANATELY. Oh God, my eyes...--HelloMrMe 22:03, 5 Mar 2005 (UTC)

User:Purple_Punkin appears to the same as previous. Uploaded same offensive picture again, inserting said image into pages, nonsense entries and templates, another page dealing with Hollywood Jam (which this page was moved to a few hours ago).
Please IP ban, or alternative measure. This person keeps comming back. Mark4011 05:18, 6 Mar 2005 (UTC)
To the best of my knowledge, I think everything has been cleaned up or added RFD. Though only the offending image and the Template:Gog is unchanged. Mark4011 06:20, 6 Mar 2005 (UTC)
This page was once again moved to Hollywood Jam by Yokobollo. Uploaded same image under new name Danube100.jpg. Same vandalism. Is there any measure we can take? I don't want to see that picture again. I have family who use this site, I would not like them to see that image either, ever. Mark4011 21:32, 6 Mar 2005 (UTC)
  • The only way to even attempt to stop this is to change Wiki to only allow updates from logged-on users who have provided an email address that has been verified. This has been constantly ruled out by the powers that be. SemperBlotto 22:31, 6 Mar 2005 (UTC)
  • This disturbed individual in all his incarnations is very familiar with the system. For many of these the only cure is to deal with the vandalism ASAP. If you block his user name he just makes up a new one. Eclecticology 01:53, 7 Mar 2005 (UTC)
  • If we can't block him we'll just have to bite the bullet. We can undo whatever things he does pretty much instantly. The best thing to do is quietly report him, block his new name, and undo his damage everytime he shows up. If we pay attention to him he'll keep coming back for more. Kinda pathetic actually. --HelloMrMe 01:55, 7 Mar 2005 (UTC)
  • Protected this page from moves.

Same goatse. It would be nice if wiki* would at least simply block that image that has that exact byte-size, with the same CRC, from being uploaded. (Perhaps even auto-block anyone that uploads it.) Having a one-day delay on image uploads might be another approach. --Connel MacKenzie 08:05, 10 Mar 2005 (UTC)

Same goatse. Mayhem undone. SemperBlotto 11:02, 12 Mar 2005 (UTC)

Same goatse. This is getting boring. SemperBlotto 22:32, 12 Mar 2005 (UTC)

Reincarnated as user Biggerone. The usual stuff. Mark4011 03:57, 14 Mar 2005 (UTC)
Early tonight. He must have an early flight tomorrow morning too. --Connel MacKenzie 04:10, 14 Mar 2005 (UTC)
Same goatse User:Biffiebumper - carnage cleaned up with help from User:Mike - SemperBlotto 08:09, 16 Mar 2005 (UTC)
Tonight he was called User:Guggenheinie - no image, just carnage. SemperBlotto 22:45, 20 Mar 2005 (UTC)
Then as User:Bill Ding he did more. Eclecticology 04:46, 21 Mar 2005 (UTC)
At Khaeotica he was reverted by a spammer when he put the image on User:'s spam!!! Looks like some kind of hierarchy among vandals. :-) Eclecticology 04:56, 21 Mar 2005 (UTC)
Today he was User:Turtle with wings - Happy Easter SemperBlotto 08:20, 26 Mar 2005 (UTC)
This evening he was User:Fizzlepizzle - much havoc reverted by User:Uncle G. SemperBlotto 22:39, 26 Mar 2005 (UTC)
Now MaxBlaster --Mark4011 00:37, 27 Mar 2005 (UTC)
Now User:Tiddlyblinx - will he ever get a life? SemperBlotto 16:13, 27 Mar 2005 (UTC)
Again as WaynePayne. --Mark4011 01:08, 28 Mar 2005 (UTC)
Back as Zitbutt. --Mark4011 04:35, 28 Mar 2005 (UTC)
Also Benjamin Bang --Mark4011 06:17, 28 Mar 2005 (UTC)
More vandalism from Dong Mung --Mark4011 08:52, 29 Mar 2005 (UTC)

User:Fuzzbuster vandalised the main page and various other major pages of Wiktionary, including the Beer Parlour, with "Ass Pus" added or replacing the pages in some cases. Banned for 28 days. — Paul G 08:49, 31 Mar 2005 (UTC)

Today he was User:Highpee - we really need to find his HiPee address. SemperBlotto 09:36, 2 Apr 2005 (UTC)
Today he was User:Lopee but he didn't get far. SemperBlotto 07:14, 3 Apr 2005 (UTC)
This afternoon he was User:Sidepee got him quick again SemperBlotto 14:38, 3 Apr 2005 (UTC)
and then he was User:Dooby SemperBlotto 15:33, 3 Apr 2005 (UTC)
I blocked (but did not delete the user page - previous "contributions") user: for posting to User:Dooby for 10 days. Reverse DNS shows --Connel MacKenzie 15:55, 3 Apr 2005 (UTC)
More "AP" junk from Mepooee. This time included 2 part recursive redirect, or in other words, had two pages redirecting to each other. Also used previous incarnations, Highpee and Lopee user pages. --Mark4011 03:04, 4 Apr 2005 (UTC)
Connel, I really think you were wrong to zap for that. All he did was cover up my AP note on "Dooby". His contribution was nonsense, but he was probably not trying to make trouble. And unlike me, he probably can't dance around your blocks. Just saying. Gottapee 13:36, 4 Apr 2005 (UTC)
Oh my. Mr. Goatse/AP himself vouching for the honor of an anonymous IP? Aparently a dial-up dynamic IP at that. OK, this is the first time you really have me scratching my head. I think I'll leave that block up for the next 8 1/2 days nevertheless. If another sysop/admin agrees with you, they can remove the block sooner. --Connel MacKenzie 17:15, 4 Apr 2005 (UTC)
This afternoon he was User:Gottapee SemperBlotto 13:45, 4 Apr 2005 (UTC)
This evening he was User:Cowpie SemperBlotto 21:11, 5 Apr 2005 (UTC)
And tonight User:Moogblat. \Mike 01:13, 7 Apr 2005 (UTC)
Also User:Beano64. - Eclecticology 08:18, 7 Apr 2005 (UTC)
Tonight he was User:Beansoup - but not for long. SemperBlotto 21:34, 7 Apr 2005 (UTC)
And later User:Lugnut \Mike 10:04, 8 Apr 2005 (UTC) - Is it possible for a dev. or so to create a "block" which forbids any new titel containing these two words which are so popular with this individual? (*please?...*) \Mike
Today user:Gumba gumba (different pattern of vandalism - probably some other nutter) SemperBlotto 18:54, 8 Apr 2005 (UTC)
And user:Zottro - seems to be the usual weirdo. \Mike 19:48, 8 Apr 2005 (UTC)
user:Hatman and all his edits need to go! --Dvortygirl 08:43, 9 Apr 2005 (UTC)
"Ass pus" at it again as user:Chiggerz --Dvortygirl 20:04, 9 Apr 2005 (UTC)
And again as user:Blukko. This is getting old. --Dvortygirl 05:24, 10 Apr 2005 (UTC)
Blocked...reverting. --Connel MacKenzie 05:42, 10 Apr 2005 (UTC)

This morning Ass Pus was User:Biddle SemperBlotto 07:07, 11 Apr 2005 (UTC)

Tonight he was User:Bizzi SemperBlotto 21:25, 11 Apr 2005 (UTC)

And User:Nux --Connel MacKenzie 07:48, 12 Apr 2005 (UTC)

User:Beedy today. Banned. — Paul G 09:04, 13 Apr 2005 (UTC)

Tonight he was User:Beek3w1 - we used to call him Guano Boy. A possible solution is only to allow edits from logged-in users who have a verified email address - but then it wouldn't be the Wiki we know and love. Maybe one-day he'll get a life. SemperBlotto 21:21, 13 Apr 2005 (UTC)

  • Perhaps that should be required for blocked addresses? Or for new users from a blocked IP, require a sysop/admin to patrol the new user's e-mail address before they can post? Max 10 new users per day per blocked IP? Anyone have an active account on meta to pass this suggestion/feature request on to the devs? --Connel MacKenzie 07:48, 14 Apr 2005 (UTC)
      • The problem with this guy is that he knows quite a bit of networking and he is very good at highjacking other people's/universities IP-adressess. Even if we know one IP-address he uses and we are able to block that, he will come back very quickly from another IP-address and apparently he can keep this up with over 20 places. Frankly, I don't see what we can do about it. When he was posting obnoxious pictures on Christmas day, I asked a developer/sysadmin for the possibility to ban links to The answer I got was that blocking sites was something that was only done as a measure against spammers and some wiki projects apparently used content from I can't imagine what that would be, but OK, I had to accept that answer. So it seems like this guy has found a weak spot and he is taking full advantage of it. One day I questioned him about his motives and he claims to be doing it 'just for fun'. Kind of pathetic, but I guess people come in all kinds.
      • Judging by his sophistication in being able to hop IP-adresses, I am afraid he is an adult, so hoping that it is a phase he will outgrow sooner rather than later is probably in vain.
      • What the Wikimedia foundation should do, if he keeps this up, is to take steps with law enforcement. To make that successful each and every thing that smells like it might be coming from him should be noted somewhere centrally. That shouldn't be too hard. We know his style by now. Then it should be correlated with the records from the DB and all the IP adresses used. By weaving a web of all he does and the cooperation of the police and the university accounts he is using, it should be possible to come to a conclusion about who he is. It involves a lot of different parties to work together though and it is improbable that the offence is serious enough to warrant it.
      • Maybe if one of use sysops gets a cardiac arrest and dies from seeing his vandalism again, we can claim he killed somebody and CSI Miami can get into action. I'd sure be interested in seeing that episode... Polyglot 13:10, 14 Apr 2005 (UTC)
I'm very impressed with your analysis, though that last statement is a bit silly. If you really want to waste your time tracing my IPs, you'll find that all are public, guest, or otherwise "open" accounts. Most universities and libraries have them. (This one is in Russia). I'm quite careful not to leave footprints on the remote system, so I'm not concerned about tracing attempts. By the way, the number of systems I can use is more like 150, though I have a "favorite" set that are faster and more reliable. Oh, and verified email?? Come on! That wouldn't be a problem for a preschooler these days. Nevermind, this is just an amusing game to me. I'll eventually get tired of it. 20:38, 14 Apr 2005 (UTC)
The idea of requesting a verified e-mail is the same as requesting users create an account...your recent usernames tend to follow a theme. --Connel MacKenzie 23:28, 16 Apr 2005 (UTC)
Thank you! --Connel MacKenzie 23:28, 16 Apr 2005 (UTC)

And again - User:Fizzybotham SemperBlotto 21:33, 13 Apr 2005 (UTC)

And again again - User:Doit2it \Mike 08:42, 15 Apr 2005 (UTC)
As a side note, I also saw only one edit when I went for the block button. I do not have my rss feed working to my liking - so it's still just random. By the time I blocked, three pages were created. (And most rss feeds throttle down to once every 5 minutes anyhow... :-( so it may remain random.) --Connel MacKenzie 23:20, 1 May 2005 (UTC)
