How to report vandalism or abuse
We don't have a dedicated vandal patrol or administrator corp to chase down bad guys. At the moment, we have two administrators and a bureaucrat, and the bureaucrat is busy writing and drawing. All of us here at How to be a Werewolf are deputies in the war on vandalism. We haven't attracted any attention yet, but sure as death and taxes, the trolls will find us.
Vandalism can be construed as malicious editing for the express purpose of damaging the wiki, page blanking to destroy content, adding content for the purpose of self-promotion or promoting content unrelated to the wiki, or adding content meant to be offensive or disgusting.
Vandalism can also take the form of improper or offensive or pornographic images. We won't get into a discussion here about what pornography is simply because the only images here should be from the comic or provided by the author.
If you find vandalism, simply revert the vandalism using the undo button and leave a warning on the vandal's Wall page. More than likely it was just some random troll passing through. If it keeps happening, in the same place or others by the same user, drop a comment at the bottom of this page. If no one gets to it in a reasonable amount of time, drop me a note on my wall: Myk Streja's wall
The following are the steps for addressing a vandal:
- Three warnings from wiki editors issued less than a week apart from each other.
An administrator must be alerted at this time.
- First block comes after the three warnings and is for three days
- Second block comes if the vandalism continues after the first block is lifted and is for seven days.
- Third time is the charm. If the vandalism continues after the seven-day block, the account is blocked indefinitely, essentially banned for life.
