RSC:VANDAL

Although we do not want vandalism on the Wiki, it can and will occasionally happen. It might be a bit hard to decide what counts as vandalism sometimes, and some people's definition of vandalism might be a whole lot different than another. These rules are a general acceptance for vandalism.

What is vandalism Edit

  • Using harsh language that does not contribute to the article.
  • Using personal attacks on another user.
  • Blanking pages.
  • Adding a lot of nonsense to a page.
  • Repeated offenses of minor offenses

What isn't vandalism Edit

Sometimes, a small warning is necessary for a user to prevent repeat offenses. Some of the situations that a warning is needed can be found below, and how to solve the issue.

  • Removing a small amount of information. *Can be talked about on the talk page*
  • Adding a small bit of nonsense to a page. *Warning on user talk page*
  • Incorrectly adding information. *Can just be undone, user might be informed of wrong information*
  • Adding minor language to articles. *Article can be rewritten to remove language if it isn't needed. Otherwise, leave it be. No warning*

Although all of these cases fall under non-vandalism, a user can still be blocked if repeated offenses happen, after a warning occurs.

What to do Edit

What should one's actions be when a vandal occurs? If a non-sysop user catches a vandal first, the user should notify an admin or bureaucrat of the vandal. If a sysop undid the vandal, or has been notified of the vandal, they should block the user, the length is decided by the sysop.
