Caps for the abandoned match[edit]

Hello everyone. For the abandoned match Serbia v Albania (UEFA Euro 2016 qualifying) an admin. User:GiantSnowman told me on my talk page that caps are not awarded for the abandoned matches (see discussion). Now I have some problems with some users to convince them for this issue. Lately User:Lindi29 has added caps at one of the players part of the abandoned match Serbia v Albania (UEFA Euro 2016 qualifying), Taulant Xhaka, pretending that the Uefa website counts these caps (see edit). Two of the biggest sources for national teams doesn't even count this abandoned match (Taulant Xhaka | National Football Teams) (Taulant Xhaka profile - EU-Football.info) . I have discussed long with the user. Eni.Sukthi.Durres (talk) 17:42, 22 January 2015 (UTC)

This has nothing to do with vandalism,I edit with a reliable and offical source who is in charge for this matches and decides if the game counts or not,for this match he is saying that Uefa is pretending but if we see Uefa has count the game and the caps to,but he is telling the opposite and making false statement against me and the Uefa website.And we are editors we disscus this thing on the talk page and reach a consenus not being convinced by an editor who wants only to edit the page by himself and reach decision only by himself.Thank You Lindi29 (talk) 19:55, 22 January 2015 (UTC)

Ok I didn't say I'm reporting for vandalism but to make us clear and i didn't know where to direct. Thank you. Eni.Sukthi.Durres (talk) 21:30, 22 January 2015 (UTC)

AIV Help[edit]

Hello there. Can I be a clerk/ helper at AIV without actually being an admin. The tasks I would like to assist with are commenting on cases; such as not many reports, please AGF etc. I wouldn't be able to ban but I would like to decline obvious cases that do not warrant being at AIV. Thanks! TheMagikCow (talk) 19:03, 8 February 2015 (UTC)

I comment on AIV reports without being an admin myself, but do not decline them. I do like this idea though! -- Orduin Discuss 19:09, 8 February 2015 (UTC)
I see it as a good idea. Just use the non-administrative response templates. --wL<speak·check> 02:03, 9 February 2015 (UTC)
WikiLeon Thank you for you reply. Where could I find the Non Admin templates? Thanks! TheMagikCow (talk) 06:57, 9 February 2015 (UTC)

@TheMagikCow: well, if you have not found them by now, the AIV notation templates can be found here. However, I believe non-admins can use the following:

  • {{AIV|w}}-Pictogram voting wait.svg Warned user.
  • {{AIV|f}}-Pictogram voting wait red.svg No vandalism since final warning. Re-report if this user resumes vandalising.
  • {{AIV|nesw}}-Pictogram voting wait red.svg No edits since being warned. Re-report if this user continues vandalising or spamming after sufficient warnings.
  • {{AIV|4im}}-Pictogram voting oppose.svg User has been inappropriately warned. 4im warnings are appropriate for severe vandalism and defamation only.
  • {{AIV|ns}}-Pictogram voting oppose.svg User has been incorrectly or insufficiently warned. Re-report if the user resumes vandalising after being warned sufficiently.
  • {{AIV|nv}}-Pictogram voting oppose.svg Edits are not vandalism. Please ensure recent edits constitute vandalism before re-reporting.
  • {{AIV|fp}}-Pictogram voting oppose.svg False positive. Edits are not vandalism.
  • {{AIV|c}}-Pictogram voting oppose.svg Content dispute. Consider dispute resolution.
  • {{AIV|n}}-Pictogram voting comment.png Note:
  • {{AIV|s}}-Pictogram voting comment.png Appears to be a shared IP address, used by multiple users.
  • {{AIV|3rr}}-Pictogram voting move light green.png This noticeboard is for obvious vandals and spammers only. Consider taking this report to WP:ANEW.
  • {{AIV|a}}-Pictogram voting move light green.png This noticeboard is for obvious vandals and spammers only. Consider taking this report to WP:AN/I.
  • {{AIV|u}}-Pictogram voting move light green.png This noticeboard is for obvious vandals and spammers only. Consider taking this report to WP:UAA.
  • {{AIV|r}}-Pictogram voting move light green.png This noticeboard is for obvious vandals and spammers only. Consider taking this report to WP:RFPP.
  • {{AIV|spi}}-Pictogram voting move light green.png This noticeboard is for obvious vandals and spammers only. Consider taking this report to WP:SPI.
  • {{AIV|ow}}-Stalewarning.svg Stale warning.
  • {{AIV|q}}-Pictogram voting question-blue.svg Question:
  • {{AIV|e|X}}-Time2wait.svg Stale report. User has not edited in X.

@WikiLeon: does this list look acceptable for non-admin use?

Thanks! -- Orduin Discuss 21:21, 20 February 2015 (UTC)

I would consider not allowing the use of the outright decline templates, but the others seem fine enough for any sensible editor to use. Sam Walton (talk) 21:33, 20 February 2015 (UTC)
I think that using nac template before is also a good idea. TheMagikCow (talk) 09:15, 21 February 2015 (UTC)

No formatting information[edit]

In most of these Wikipedia pages, there is information on how to format a report. But when I came to file a report, there was nothing on the page or in the page's code that indicated what information was required and how to format a report. I had to go back in the page history to see how past reports had been filed. Since this is very unlike most other WP pages (like AfD, CfD, TfD, etc.), I believe this information probably was once there and has been accidentally deleted. Could someone more familiar with WP:AIV include instructions either on the page or in the page code as a comment? Thanks. Liz Read! Talk! 22:46, 17 February 2015 (UTC)

On it! TheMagikCow (talk) 14:34, 22 February 2015 (UTC)

This is what I came up with. Any changed can be made. Can I post it on the main AIV page?

 Administrator intervention against vandalism

How to File an AIV Report

  1. Remember that this page is for vandals that are such blatant and serious problems and need to be immediately blocked.
  2. Remember that the user must have edited recently.
  3. Remember that the user must have had enough warnings to constitute being blocked from Wikipedia, usually a level 4 or 4im warning, used appropriately.
  4. The vandal template should be used if you decide that a report should be filed. It must only be used for users, not IP addresses. It should look like: *{{vandal|Example user}} concise reason e.g. vandalised past 4th warning. ~~~~
  5. For an IP user it should look like: *{{IPvandal|127.0.0.1}} concise reason e.g. vandalised past 4th warning. ~~~~
  6. More information can be found at WP:GAIV
