I've replied to you on my talk page, but I just thought I would give you the standard welcome message because it has links to useful information in it...

Vandalism vs Content dispute?[edit]

There is a user User:UWTime who is going around adding links to Barefoot on pages of comic characters. At what point is something vandalism and at what point is it a content dispute? If you check his history (all just today), all of the edits are the same. Adding links to barefoot. I have seen this behavior before on the Rin (InuYasha) page by another author.

Someone certainly appears to have a barefoot fetish! My feeling is that the amendments would constitute a content dispute provided they were correct - were the editor to be making changes to a character indicating that they were going barefoot when this was patently untrue, then it would be vandalism. Presumably the editor you're referring to on the Rin (InuYasha) page is User:ManiacMikey, who (from looking at his talk page) was blocked for that behaviour.
In terms of what to do, if you disagree with the changes then revert them and open a discussion on the talk page. If you suspect that User:UWTime is the same person as User:ManiacMikey then create a report at the suspected sock puppet page outlining your concerns. If you have any questions, feel free to leave a message on my talk page. Giles Bennett (Talk, Contribs) 08:16, 5 July 2007 (UTC)
