today I blocked Minky Steve due to abusive sockpuppetry (and creation of abusive pages), I also blocked Nerevar Indoril and re-blocked Bob Bobertson due to abusive sockpuppetry. All three accounts are confirmed sockpuppets of [[User:Total Rune|Total Rune]] (already blocked before), who was – in addition – also responsible for the vandalism accounts I Love Sodomy and Buck 4. All these accounts were editing as anons too, quite often in an aggressive and obviously "trolling" manner.

Note: Wikia – in general – does not accept such behaviour on any of its projects, see [[Wikia:Terms of use#Use_of_the_Wikia_sites|terms of use]].

There is definitely no point in believing those claims regarding "brothers and sisters" and "I didn't note that they vandalized". CheckUser results are pretty clear (logged in as A, logged out, logged in as B, logged out, logged in as A again … all within minutes).

If there are any questions regarding this issue, please leave me a note, also if there are further problems with vandalism or supposable sockpuppets. I hope the problematic situation settles down a bit now. Admins, please do not unblock any of these accounts without talking to Wikia staff before. If one of the users wants to get unblocked, he can use the contact form and explain his position. Well, we may consider unblocking under some circumstances later, but this will depend on how he behaves in the near future (especially if he stops vandalizing pages immediately from now on).
