Vandalism[edit]

Hey there. The account that you just posted to is a known vandal on Wikipedia - the so called "Wikipedia is Communism" vandal. I've blocked him/her indefinitely already. Check out this page if you are interested in helping to deal with vandalism on Wikipedia :-) --HappyCamper 01:46, 25 October 2005 (UTC)

Thanks[edit]

Thank you, glad to be welcome here! ;] The guys in #wikipedia-en-vandalism have been great about helping me learn to rvv! I actually came to it by accident, went to #wikipedia , to ask a question, and was turned off immediately, was about to leave, and someone mentioned the vandalism channel -- soon as I joined, I was hooked ;] Not a bad first day so far, 130+ rvv's in my first 24h ;] (Finally got a msg in my talk! ;] Next ,milestone I'm waiting for is an irritated vandal defacing my user page ;] ) --VileRage (Talk|Cont) 01:58, 25 October 2005 (UTC)

Awesome![edit]

Wow, not only did not not have a welcome from an admin here, but you even were bold enough to start reverting vandalism from the start! Here's a nice warm welcome from me:

Thanks for reverting the united states deletion-and later blanking guy. :) - Mgm|(talk) 11:46, 25 October 2005 (UTC)

Hi, I'd like to thank you for reverting vandalism of my user page. The individual's edits to Maximilian von Spee under the IP address 203.36.44.13 seem to be vandalism (looking at his/her previous edits). Anyway, thanks again!

Hi Vilerage,

Thank you very much for your support on my RfA. I was both surprised and delighted about the amount of support votes and all the kind words! If I can ever help with anything or if you have any comments about my actions as an admin, please let me know! Regards, JoanneB 13:22, 21 November 2005 (UTC)

Speedy delete tags[edit]

Thanks for your great work in adding speedy delete tags. Just be careful about one thing -- a couple of the pages that you tagged actually had been victims of blanking-vandalism, so make sure that the pages that you tag shouldn't be actually reverted to something meaningful. (I'm as guilty of this sometimes.) Thanks! --Nlu 08:45, 23 November 2005 (UTC)

Thanks for letting me know ;] Yeah, i was halfway thru cleaning up Special:Shortpages and I thought to myself 'gee, I should be checking the histories, shouldn't I?'. I don't know why I didn't go back thru and fix any of the pages I'd previously tagged. Hope it didn't cause you any major inconvienience! ;]. Slightly off this topic, it looks like Special:Shortpages is not updating. Page is exactly the same as it was when I walked away 5 hours ago. Know anything about that? On another sidenote, congrats on passing your RfA the other day ;] --VileRage (Reply|C|Spam Me!*) 14:32, 23 November 2005 (UTC)
No problem at all. As I (and GraemeL) said, it's an easy mistake to make, and I've made them plenty of times myself in the past. --Nlu 16:22, 23 November 2005 (UTC)

I was actually coming to let you know that I'd reverted Oxley Wild Rivers National Park to a previous stub rather than deleting it. Seems like Nlu beat me to it and you're going to check the history in future. :-)

I also fixed the broken RFA thanks above. --GraemeL (talk) 14:39, 23 November 2005 (UTC)

Waitasec ;] I'm a touch confused here ;] The stub, while it *was* a stub, seemed relevant. Shouldn't I revert vandalism? IMHO, it seems like speedying it (I have no Delete button ;]) would worsen the problem. I could also be thinking of the wrong article, as I think I reverted 50 pages, and speedied 85 last night ;] As always, appreciate the tip however. --VileRage (Reply|C|Spam Me!*) 14:44, 23 November 2005 (UTC)
It was a valid stub which was blanked by a vandal. You tagged the blanked version for speedy delete and I reverted it to a stub. Don't worry about it, I've made the same mistake before myself. --GraemeL (talk) 14:52, 23 November 2005 (UTC)
Oh, I see now, I had what you were saying backwards (I must have still been half asleep) I thought you were saying i should have deleted it, instead of reverting it! ;] I get you now, thanks for letting me know ;] --VileRage (Reply|C|Spam Me!*) 21:25, 23 November 2005 (UTC)
