 Administrator intervention against vandalism
This page is intended for reports about obvious and persistent vandals and spammers only. Before posting here, please read the spam and vandalism pages, as well as the AIV guide. To submit a report, edit this page and follow the instructions at the top of the "User-reported" section. For other issues that require administrators, file an external request for administrator attention.

Important! Please remember the following:
  1. The edits of the reported user must be obvious vandalism or obvious spam.
  2. The user must have been given enough warnings to stop their disruptive behavior.
  3. The warnings must have been given recently and the users must be active now, especially for unregistered users.
  4. The appropriate vandal template should be used if you decide that a report should be filed.
    • For logged-in users only: It should look like: *{{vandal|Example user}} concise reason e.g. vandalised past 4th warning. ~~~~
    • For IP users only: it should look like: *{{IPvandal|127.0.0.1}} concise reason e.g. vandalised past 4th warning. ~~~~
  5. Requests for further sanctions against a blocked user (e.g., talk page, e-mail blocks) should go to Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard/Incidents, as a bot automatically removes accounts here that are blocked.
  6. Reports of sockpuppetry should be made at Wikipedia:Sockpuppet investigations unless the connection between the accounts is obvious and disruption is recent and ongoing.
