Welcome to the Anti-Vandalism Center!

Rules[edit]

1.Removing or improving the edit

Needy edits should be tagged according to their need (e.g. {{wikify}}), or boldly changed immediately. Bad edits should likewise be tagged or deleted. Because no wikipedians like their edits to be deleted, it is important to leave concise but clear justifications on the talk page or in the edit summary. When adding tags, please consider placing them on the article's talk page rather than in the article itself.

2.Warn the editor

In the cases of deliberate vandalism or an evident lack of knowledge on Wikipedia procedure, offending editors should be warned on their talk pages. While this is an optional step, it should be a regular part of a patroller's duties, as it minimizes conflict, educates new editors and alerts administrators of repeat offenders. For efficiency and consistency, standard warning templates can be found here. However do feel free to simply write a warning if the available templates are not appropriate. Check the user's other contributions — you'll often find more edits with similar problems. Fix those as well.

Your Faith[edit]

  • Level 1 - Assumes good faith
  • Level 2 - No faith assumption
  • Level 3 - Assumes bad faith; stern cease and desist
  • Level 4 - Assumes bad faith; strong cease and desist, last warning

Moves[edit]

What to type What it makes
{{subst:uw-move1|Article}} Information.svg Welcome to Wikipedia. Although everyone is welcome to contribute constructively to the encyclopedia, articles should not be moved, as you did to Article, without good reason. They need to have a name that is both accurate and intuitive. We have some guidelines in place to help with this. Generally, a page should only be moved to a new title if the current name doesn't follow these guidelines. Also, if a page move is being discussed, consensus needs to be reached before anybody moves the page. Take a look at the welcome page to learn more about contributing to this encyclopedia. Thank you.
{{subst:uw-move2|Article}} Information.svg Please do not move a page to a title that is harder to follow or move it unilaterally against naming conventions or consensus, as you did to Article.

Any further changes which have the effect of censoring an article, such as you did to Article, will be regarded as vandalism.

You are welcome to rephrase your comment as a civil criticism of the article. Thank you.

Neutral point of view[edit]

What to type What it makes
{{subst:uw-npov1|Article}} Information.svg Welcome to Wikipedia, and thank you for your contributions. One of the core policies of Wikipedia is that articles should always be written from a neutral point of view.

Please remember to observe this important core policy. Thank you.
{{subst:uw-npov2|Article}} Information.svg Please do not add commentary or your own personal analysis to Wikipedia articles, as you did to Article. Doing so violates Wikipedia's neutral point of view policy and breaches the formal tone expected in an encyclopedia. Thank you.
{{subst:uw-npov3|Article}} Nuvola apps important.svg Please stop. If you continue to violate Wikipedia's neutral point of view policy by adding commentary and your personal analysis into articles, as you did to Article, you may be blocked from editing Wikipedia.

What to type What it makes
{{subst:uw-own1|Article}} Information.svg Welcome to Wikipedia. Everyone is welcome to contribute constructively to Wikipedia.

External links spam[edit]

What to type What it makes
{{subst:uw-spam1|Article}} Information.svg Welcome to Wikipedia. Although everyone is welcome to contribute to the encyclopedia, one or more of the external links you added to the page Article do not comply with our guidelines for external links and have been removed. Wikipedia is not a collection of links; nor should it be used as a platform for advertising or promotion, and doing so is contrary to the goals of this project. Because Wikipedia uses nofollow tags, external links do not alter search engine rankings. If you feel the link should be added to the article, please discuss it on the article's talk page before reinserting it. Please take a look at the welcome page to learn more about contributing to this encyclopedia. Thank you.
{{subst:uw-spam2|Article}} Information.svg Please do not add inappropriate external links to Wikipedia, as you did to Article. Wikipedia is not a collection of links, nor should it be used for advertising or promotion. Inappropriate links include (but are not limited to) links to personal web sites, links to web sites with which you are affiliated, and links that attract visitors to a web site or promote a product. See the external links guideline and spam guideline for further explanations. Because Wikipedia uses the nofollow attribute value, its external links are disregarded by most search engines. If you feel the link should be added to the article, please discuss it on the article's talk page rather than re-adding it. Thank you.
{{subst:uw-spam3|Article}} Nuvola apps important.svg Please stop adding inappropriate external links to Wikipedia, as you did to Article. It is considered spamming and Wikipedia is not a vehicle for advertising or promotion. Because Wikipedia uses nofollow tags, additions of links to Wikipedia will not alter search engine rankings. If you continue spamming, you may be blocked from editing Wikipedia.
{{subst:uw-spam4|Article}} Stop hand nuvola.svg This is the final warning you will receive regarding your disruptive edits. The next time you insert a spam link, as you did to Article, you may be blocked from editing without further notice.

Administrators will look at your reasoning before deciding what to do with the page. Thank you.
{{subst:uw-speedy2|Article}} Information.svg Please do not remove speedy deletion notices from pages you have created yourself, as you did with Article. Please use the {{hangon}} template on the page instead if you disagree with the deletion, and make your case on the page's talk page. Thank you.

Specifically, your edit to Article may be offensive or unwelcome. In general, it is considered polite to avoid substantially editing others' userpages without their permission. Instead, please bring the matter to their talk page and let them edit their user page themselves if they agree on a need to do so.
