Vandalizing the human female light gallery page. 17:56, 20 December 2018 (UTC)
Left a message on their talk page. Sorry for doing a rollback on your proper edit. G R E E N E R 18:37, 20 December 2018 (UTC) (talkcontribslogsblock log)
Ongoing vandalism along with other IPs in Recent changes. --Cali (talk) 04:18, 12 December 2018 (UTC)
Can you please do something about that vandal that keeps editing my personal page? Thanks in advance. Inculpatus cedo (talk) 04:23, 12 December 2018 (UTC)
Firstly, thank you to both of you for being on top of the vandalism. Secondly, the person that was hopping through some open IPs appears to have tired themselves out. If they become a problem again, we can address the situation with some of our tools. Thirdly, it appears the particular IP address listed above has been a problem for quite some time according to the abuse logs, so I'll give that IP a longer time-out. G R E E N E R 05:01, 12 December 2018 (UTC)
Yeah, seems he/she has retired for the moment, thanks. Could you, perhaps, remove the edits he/she did, though? They are pretty nasty. Again, thanks in advance. Inculpatus cedo (talk) 05:05, 12 December 2018 (UTC)
I've protected both your pages for the time being. If it's the same vandal from yesterday, they're angry at being banned from the game, so they might not quit for a bit, sadly. Just keep an eye out and revert as you can. Also thank you for noticing. <3 - Doodleplex 13:30, 12 December 2018 (UTC)
Thanks for protecting the page, and could you remove the edits they posted? Anyone can read them in the History. Thanks. Inculpatus cedo (talk) 16:07, 12 December 2018 (UTC)
Done. —Ventriloquist 16:26, 12 December 2018 (UTC)
Thanks so very much. Inculpatus cedo (talk) 16:34, 12 December 2018 (UTC) (talkcontribslogsblock log)
Spambot. 16:01, 3 December 2018 (UTC)
Got it, and Alex added an abusefilter for future cases. Thanks! - Felix Omni 18:59, 3 December 2018 (UTC)
(Edit conflict) Blocked thanks. New abuseFilter rule set up too "Anonymous user creating blank page with suspiciously short title". (link only for other admins Special:AbuseFilter/34) -Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 19:00, 3 December 2018 (UTC) (talkcontribslogsblock log)
Vandalised many pages with unknown link + keeps deleting content from pages Sime (talk) 22:06, 19 February 2018 (UTC)
Got it, thanks! G R E E N E R 22:08, 19 February 2018 (UTC)

Dealt with. May want to have someone with open eyes see if the abuse filters should be adjusted or not. G R E E N E R 09:45, 4 February 2018 (UTC) (talkcontribslogsblock log)

Rather than asking for a block on this IP, I'm asking for temporary page protection for Astralaria. It's possible that the IP has already lost interest, since I missed their second edit from a few days ago which reverted my undo of their first edit. --Cali (talk) 04:17, 9 December 2017 (UTC)

Oh, Doodle, you're too fast; thanks for taking care of this while I was typing. :) --Cali (talk) 04:24, 9 December 2017 (UTC)
Heh, I was trying to fix the issue with the Stellar Weapons so I noticed your edit comment. You're right, it's entirely possible the IP just wandered off or was confused and figured it out later or. Either way, it's protected for two weeks. - Doodleplex 04:32, 9 December 2017 (UTC)
I made this request in error by misunderstanding what the IP was trying to do; see my talk page. Consequently, I don't think this page needs protection after all. --Cali (talk) 00:03, 15 December 2017 (UTC)
Done. - Doodleplex 00:15, 15 December 2017 (UTC) (talkcontribslogsblock log)

There is a vandal repeatedly deleting my edit for The Royal Terrace Pass, please ban them.

IP address :, since then they have changed ip. The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk) at 01:19, 13 September 2017‎ (UTC).

The situation has been taken care of via a temp block on editing rights to that page. Wielding the ban hammer over a one-time troll serves little purpose. G R E E N E R 01:38, 13 September 2017 (UTC)
It appears that two items got mixed up due to similar names, and the rest of the edit unfortunately wasn't relative to that item as a result, hence the back and forth. Matter resolved. - Doodleplex 02:08, 13 September 2017 (UTC)
We234 (talkcontribslogsblock log)
Could we filter out the website these two bots are promoting? Merci. G R E E N E R 09:21, 3 March 2017 (UTC)

Les spam. G R E E N E R 03:38, 3 March 2017 (UTC)

Spam bot. - Doodleplex 09:03, 26 January 2017 (UTC)
He's banned Jim - Felix Omni 16:42, 26 January 2017 (UTC) (talkcontribslogsblock log)
This user has repeatedly defaced profession pages. I have not found one of his edits which were not destruction of content or misleading information. -Darqam (talk) 17:10, 18 March 2016 (UTC) (talkcontribslogsblock log)
They add things to the wiki that aren't true or useless. Nearly every single one of their edits was undone, removed or is questionable. - Doodleplex 03:35, 4 March 2016 (UTC)
That person is a handful. They've been editing (incorrect) information for, what, a year now, on different IPs and usernames. They come and go, often leaving chaos, but nothing worthy of a month ban. I'm keeping my eye on them, but for now, it can be excused as "misguided editing". —Ventriloquist 19:36, 4 March 2016 (UTC)
They're back. They made that lovely "TRASH" page which got deleted and today's edit is about the same: [1] along with a whole bunch of tags to delete npc still in game...sigh. (5 bucks says it's a highschooler on their last fling before school starts up again lol) - Doodleplex 01:25, 25 August 2016 (UTC)
This wiki has had problems with that IP since 2014. I left a note on their talk page, and if they keep doing similar harmful edits, I won't hesitate to ban them. —Ventriloquist 15:24, 25 August 2016 (UTC)
He's been warned multiple times, and has made yet another spam page "TRASH". Might be time for a swift boot to the posterior.-Darqam (talk) 01:48, 2 September 2016 (UTC)

Keeps removing event timer from Verdant Brink page for some inexplicable reason. Seylan (talk) 12:22, 5 March 2016 (UTC)
Appears to have stopped for now. Will issue a ban if they come back. —Ventriloquist 12:58, 5 March 2016 (UTC)
He/she's baaaaack
^I feel like the above has been resolved, it wasn't intentional vandalism, and as a result something got fixed. So case closed ish? (talkcontribslogsblock log) and (talkcontribslogsblock log)
I'm pretty sure it's the same person, the IP's are too close, and they consistently like to vandalize the Mawdrey Page with misinformation...and apparently are getting nasty about being wrong. Perhaps the page itself be semi-protected to avoid this from continuing, as I feel like they're just very lost/confused. - Doodleplex 16:41, 11 May 2016 (UTC)
They are likely the same user yes, however I don't really think the edits are malicious - for example the talk page comment was fairly neutral (granted it was probably rubbish and non-fact, but hey, talk page). The first response is naturally to post on their talk page and see if they answer or continue. I will however watch out, so thanks for the prompt. -Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 19:17, 11 May 2016 (UTC)
In general, it might not hurt to have Mawdrey semi-protected to prevent anons who are confused (looking at the history, seems like this user wasn't the only one, and to be honest, I got confused when I made it, I thought I only had to do what was on that page lol) from adding misinformation? - Doodleplex 19:26, 11 May 2016 (UTC)
They're at it again, profanity on the talk page, which Darqam removed as it really wasn't appropriate. While they may be extremely confused, right now they're being extremely immature. - Doodleplex 15:56, 12 May 2016 (UTC)
You don't teach wiki-infidels the way by curb-stomping them. -Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 17:15, 12 May 2016 (UTC)

Refuses to stop reverting edits on the Use Scepter page. - Doodleplex 17:49, 14 July 2016 (UTC)

To be fair, his methods were bad but he was correct. Most other stolen items have an acquisition section. His way of approaching it and formatting were not ok, but the end result is now proper (I think). -Darqam (talk) 17:56, 14 July 2016 (UTC)
Adding to this. Ok the info is good, but methods are not. Will try to mention it on the talk page. -Darqam (talk) 18:01, 14 July 2016 (UTC)
‎ (talkcontribslogsblock log)

Has made the page "Stronk" twice, the contents of which are vandalism. I can't check the deletion log for who made it yesterday, but I'd be willing to bet it's the same guy. - Doodleplex 22:11, 18 July 2016 (UTC)

The page has been protected, and yes, it was the same IP. —Ventriloquist 22:43, 18 July 2016 (UTC) (talkcontribslogsblock log)

Has made crazy spam on all major races pages. -Darqam 00:17, 6 November 2016 (UTC)

IP has been banned by Tanetris. Everything is well with the world once again. -Darqam 00:23, 6 November 2016 (UTC) (talkcontribslogsblock log)

Related to the below section about Elize Fairchild‎, this IP has done nothing but revert. Attempts to contact them for dialogue have been made, but they have not responded. To note, they appear to have the same location as For (talkcontribslogsblock log) so I'm not sure if it's the same user being wishy-washy or not, but all the actions of this particular IP have not been productive. - Doodleplex 18:00, 9 November 2016 (UTC)

I would not presently consider this vandalism, but we're keeping an eye on the situation. - Felix Omni 19:38, 9 November 2016 (UTC)
Thank you. Hopefully we can get an official answer soon so the revert party on that poor NPC page can be put to rest. - Doodleplex 19:48, 9 November 2016 (UTC)
