Wikipedia vandalism information

Level 1

Very high level of vandalism.


7.9CVS / 9.4RPM according to DefconBot 22:00, 30 November 2015 (UTC)

Why am I here?[edit]

I created this account to help with the Tennis articles; which relate to the Tennis Portal. I am eclectic in my interests, with a few strong points here and there. (Ibid. Avicennasis) I am appalled at general vandalism as much as overzealous editors. I have been known to make updates in any of the categories listed on the right.

Wikipedian Status: Member since October, 2005. Active since January, 2006 (9 years, 333 days). What have I done? Edit Count: 3900+

Who am I?[edit]

Although some of my edits may concern my previous employers, I am not in Public Relations and my contributions do not represent the views or opinions of my employers or any of their subsidiaries.

Quinn's Tools[edit]

Tools: WP:Huggle, WP:AWB, WP:ROLLBACK, Wikipedia:WikiProject Check Wikipedia


  1. Revert first, then discuss
  2. Use the Warn function in WP:Huggle, even for IP's - so they can be blocked.

WikiProject Banners[edit]

  1. Every article should have one; usually more. The more eyes, the better the article.
    1. If more than 3; place {{WikiProjectBannerShell}}; If WPBIO then add blp=yes to the shell
  2. WP Banner Order
    1. If WPBio, then move it to first position. Take a famous tennis player; WPBio, Then Tennis, Then country of birth. Then state if US, Cities if they have a "Category:Sports people from {cityname}"
    2. if Museum: Museum, then {art|tech|natural}, then country, maybe city


  • Fix Infobox categories; add WP banners
  • Fix Navbox categories; add WP banners

Projects and Articles[edit]

I have a number of projects in which I have an interest. I have not joined them all. I am still learning about Portals, Projects, Templates and Categories; how they currently work and generally making sure that my areas of interest are up to standards and correct data-wise when possible.

List of projects: (in order of joining)

Areas in which I have an interest[edit]

Articles I'm working on in my sandbox[edit]

These are works in progress, but I would still be interested in input other wikipedians had to offer on them.

Articles I'm working on live[edit]

  1. Yes check.svg Done Make Project:Tennis talk banner like Project:France (with the "right Icon").

  • Check Wikipedia:TOTD more often
  • Yes check.svg DoneAdd {{Signpost-subscription|right}}
  • Check out usage of {{Werdnabot|inc_cur=3}}
  • Yes check.svg Donefind the ToDo thing and implement it for Tennis


  1. Adding pages to the project and the portal; Still searching/debating "rules" for which page goes where...
  2. Category:List-Class_tennis_articles - Building this list; also N/A's
  1. See why the "see also" list here: List_of_female_tennis_players does not show up under general tennis categories...
  2. Rebuild Template:WikiProject Tennis from a custom template to a WPBannerMeta standard template (see Sandbox).
  3. Assess articles: Category:Unknown-importance_tennis_articles
  4. Go for players that need an infobox. Find Category.


  1. IP:Boise State Broncos tennis; Find stats, coaches list, awards
  2. DONE:Need 'Boise State University' bottom banner (See other major universities...)

Yes check.svg Done Made it {{Boise State University}}

  1. Make Broncos a sub category of Category:College tennis teams in the United States like these guys: Category:South_Carolina_Gamecocks_tennis
  • I will work on this page also...since he lives in town...Greg Patton


  1. make a "real" company template (as a basis for new corporate articles. Some kind of reference as to what headers should exist.

Tip of the day...
Undoing edits

Anyone can revert a page to fix vandalism. All revisions of a page back to the first one are stored in the page history. To revert to an earlier version, just select and copy the text from the history, open the article for editing, paste it back in, and save it. When not dealing with obvious vandalism, reverting often is a bad strategy. It alienates other users and provokes edit wars. Stay cool, talk to the user in question directly, or try to resolve issues on the talk page.

Please do not revert the same page more than three times within 24-hours (the Three-revert rule). Doing so can lead to a temporary ban against you. Administrators and Rollbackers have a handy rollback feature that allows them to instant-revert changes from a user's contributions page. This helps to quickly revert vandalism as well. To revert only the most recent edit there is an undo link on the article history page or on the article diff page.
