SmashWiki:Administrators' noticeboard/Archive 8

From SmashWiki, the Super Smash Bros. wiki
Archive.png This page is an archive. Do not edit the contents of this page. Direct any additional comments to the current talk page.

The Administrators' noticeboard is intended to be a page to quickly alert the administrators to issues that need their attention.

To make a request or statement, create a new section and provide a neutral, precise summary of events with thought-out reasoning, and, if possible, links to any pages with relevant discussions. It is also a good idea to notify any users involved with the request with a link to the section on this page. Make sure to add new sections to the bottom.

Report vandals and sockpuppets at the top of the appropriate section labeled for such reports at the using {{IP|Username}}, where Username is the name of the user or the IP vandal's IP address.

For reporting similar and unacceptable usernames, report them here instead of on this page. This is done to keep the reports in one place, and because unacceptable usernames can be more subjective (unlike vandal/spam accounts), which may necessitate discussion (which the linked page will be more suited to handle).

Vandal/Spam account reports[edit]

Admin note: Please adhere to SW:QDV. Keep discussion to a minimum; an obvious bad-faith editor's record will speak for itself.

Suspicious username yes, but with a decently different IP address. I'm going to let this one slide for now, with the knowledge that if it is indeed a sock, its behaviour will be blatantly obvious. Toomai Glittershine ??? The Non-Toxic 14:06, 11 November 2015 (EST)

On User talk:Disaster Flare, a bunch of accounts that have not made any edits except arguing the exact same point within little time of each other are trying to stir up drama.

Seems to be good faith, though. SerpentKing (talk) 00:19, 1 November 2015 (EDT)
Ehhh... I mean, they made what appears to be a vanity article, got unacceptably irritated when questioned, made several accounts to argue their own point, and then backpedaled when they were called out on it. I wouldn't call that good faith. ---Preceding unsigned comment added by BOO! Or maybe Nutta. 00:22, 1 November 2015 (EDT)
Although, they do appear to be sticking around despite the article being deleted. Who knows. ---Preceding unsigned comment added by BOO! Or maybe Nutta. 00:24, 1 November 2015 (EDT)
I deleted what appeared to be the page of contention. If they demonstrate bad faith more blatantly, I'll take action. Miles (talk) 00:25, 1 November 2015 (EDT)
Are you at least going to look into the sockpuppet thing? At the very least he's a good-faith user that we can just tell "hey that's against the rules" and he won't do it again in the future. ---Preceding unsigned comment added by BOO! Or maybe Nutta. 00:27, 1 November 2015 (EDT)
Let's see. Those four are indeed all the same IP, as are "Suno", "P0lka", "Hhggjghfgdudh", "Pikmintho", "Scorpionmasterxd", and notably, "Ness sucks" (blocked for vandalizing Jamal's talk page by spamming {{notable}}). I think it's time to permablock all of those but J7paul, who is on his last chance. Miles (talk) 00:31, 1 November 2015 (EDT)

I wondered if it was Ness Sucks. I saw him lurking. SerpentKing (talk) 00:36, 1 November 2015 (EDT)

Thought I just say something random about the recent vandalism on this wiki.[edit]

So it appears that most of the recent IP vandals that I've searched up are from the United Kingdom or Puerto Rico. It sure seems like we're having two different repeating vandals. :P Dots (talk) Mega Man X SNES sprite.png The Engineer 19:17, 20 October 2015 (EDT)

Huh... Ganonmew, The Evil Clone 19:23, 20 October 2015 (EDT)
@Ganonmew: Sorry if I had bad grammar on my last sentence but what I mean is that I used this website to find out where the recent IP vandals' world locations are. Dots (talk) Mega Man X SNES sprite.png The Marine 19:37, 20 October 2015 (EDT)
That's not what I meant. I meant that you could be on to something. Ganonmew, The Evil Clone 19:50, 20 October 2015 (EDT)
What do you mean by I'm on to something? I was only stating a random fact to note about the recent vandalism that has been going around. Dots (talk) Mega Man X SNES sprite.png The Sandvich 20:08, 20 October 2015 (EDT)
Eh, idk, but there is definitely sockpuppetry going on. It reminds me of a vandal that had to be dealt with a few years ago named Mr. Curious. (Go ask someone like OT or ToastUltimatum: I don't really know) The difference is that there is two instead of one. Ganonmew, The Evil Clone 20:18, 20 October 2015 (EDT)
Yeah I remember the Mr. Curious user. Other than finding the locations of the IP vandals, I don't think I could find anything more about them, particularly I'm talking about the said British and Puerto Rican IPs. Dots (talk) Mega Man X SNES sprite.png The Smiley 20:26, 20 October 2015 (EDT)

Obviously, we can't block entire territories. How closely grouped are these IPs? Nyargleblargle (Talk · Contribs) 20:49, 20 October 2015 (EDT)

I'm not sure if they're working on the same side against the wiki or not but its something to note on. The vandal usernames on the other hand, I have no idea if they're connected with the IPs as well. Dots (talk) Mega Man X SNES sprite.png The EarthBound 21:11, 20 October 2015 (EDT)
Great. now my british life has worked AGAINST me. INoMedssig.png INoMed (Talk • Contribs) 03:23, 21 October 2015 (EDT)

On this note, why did we open up page creation again? I don't think I've seen many good new pages by IPs and Unconfirmed users, and, to be honest, the wait time is so low that I think legit editors would rather wait anyway... ScoreCounter 04:35, 21 October 2015 (EDT)

That...actually sounds like a good idea. ---Preceding unsigned comment added by BOO! Or maybe Nutta. 14:25, 21 October 2015 (EDT)

Re-raising the point after what just happened. ScoreCounter 12:01, 22 October 2015 (EDT)
Y'know, creating new pages with absurd titles is not a very effective form of vandalism. It's annoying to us, but anyone coming here to look up information isn't going to be hindered at all. I'd rather have vandals doing that than messing with actual articles. Zyrac (talk) 12:05, 22 October 2015 (EDT)
Exactly. Nyargleblargle (Talk · Contribs) 12:06, 22 October 2015 (EDT)
That's also true. ---Preceding unsigned comment added by BOO! Or maybe Nutta. 12:09, 22 October 2015 (EDT)
Conversley, it's an invisible mess that's much more of a pain to clean up afterwards. You can argue it both ways, I guess. I personally would sooner have a more visible mess that no-one ends up seeing because it get's RB'ed within seconds, rather than a slightly less apparent mess that takes ages to get rid of. ScoreCounter 12:12, 22 October 2015 (EDT)

I think that we should let them do this. It is easier to clean up, as we just add d tags. It won't effect casual surfing. Don't make it harder to vandalize, as then it is also harder to check for real changes in rec changes and history. What do you think? DekZek, The creature of your nightmares Dekzeksig-Oct.png 12:16, 22 October 2015 (EDT)

DekZek's got a point, we can't treat vandals like it's a problem we can permanently solve. It's a problem we will always face on any Wiki. The best thing we can do is add d tags and revert when necessary. Disaster Flare (talk) 12:18, 22 October 2015 (EDT)

I didn't really think that this section was to do with how to get rid of the vandals. We simply can't, but just blocking them and reverting their edits. If we get attacked daily, then we just have to prevent the vandals from doing damage. Dots (talk) Mega Man X SNES sprite.png The Smiley 13:25, 22 October 2015 (EDT)
