Wiktionary:Vandalism in progress

Definition from Wiktionary, the free dictionary
Jump to: navigation, search

This page is intended to get administrator attention quickly when dealing with current instances of vandalism. List new alerts at the top of the list in the following manner:

* {{vandal|username or IP}} Brief reason why, preferably a link to a vandalized page. ~~~~

Don’t include the User: prefix in the template!

Please do not add cases older than two to three hours. Denied requests will have an explanation added here, and be kept for one to seven days before being removed. Thank you for helping us keep an organized Wiktionary!

Admins: Please remove performed blocks.

New alerts[edit]

  • Tanzil bajwa like shaking (talkcontribsglobal account infodeleted contribsnukeedit filter logpage movesblockblock logactive blocks) From the looks of the description, the new user page seems like an act of vandalism trying to insult someone: User:Tanzil_bajwa_like_shaking --Trickycow (talk) 20:00, 20 November 2014 (UTC)
    • Blocked. User:Trickycow, {{vandal}} already links to the user page, you need not do it twice. (It defeats ping prevention, by the way.) Keφr 20:13, 20 November 2014 (UTC)
      • Thanks! I included the User page in the text since the alert instructions say to link to the vandalized page, which in this case was a User page rather than a regular page. Perhaps it would make sense to revise the vandalism instructions for this case? (or is this what the "Don't include the User: prefix in the template" comment is referring to?). --Trickycow (talk) 00:17, 21 November 2014 (UTC)
        • Maybe, but this is such a rare case we might as well not bother (spammy userspace pages are watched for really stringently; other userspace pages are not a concern usually). You could have pointed to the main namespace vandalism they committed as well. Whatever, case closed. Keφr 10:57, 21 November 2014 (UTC)
