Per our protection policy all protect sites must be reviewed by the community. So.

  • A vandal IP was introducing incredible amounts of spam to numerous pages at a very rapid rate.
  • I enabled a semi-protection to allow registered users to edit as the vandal was an IP.
  • He/it was using a new IP the moment the old one was blocked. I am currently (but will be soon) not aware of how to do a range block (I will read how when I finish typing this).
  • When I knew Rwojy had the range block, I turned off the protect site,
  • It was enabled for about 9 minutes. Discuss away.--Degenret01 04:36, April 8, 2010 (UTC)


I was editing my potion table the whole time. I had no idea any of this was going on. I'm always on top of things. kitty.pngPsycho Robot talkSilver bar.png 04:57, April 8, 2010 (UTC)

Aren't you supposed to be part of the rc cabal? You should be ashamed and lose your cabal status. IJWSKBucket detail.pngrwojy 04:58, April 8, 2010 (UTC)
Its not a cabal, its an oligarchy! kitty.pngPsycho Robot talkSilver bar.png 05:00, April 8, 2010 (UTC)

I was playing with mah user-icon. I noticed what was happening, but was sure you, Rwojy and Charitwo could handle it, and I think the decisions made were appropriate. Chicken7 >talk 05:01, April 8, 2010 (UTC)


Well IP=Vandal anyway soo.....and 9 minutes really doesnt matter....you did the right thing :D

Are you saying all IPs are vandals? Ancient talisman.png Oil4 Talk 16:10, April 8, 2010 (UTC)
Approxamitly 80% are, yes 16:19, April 8, 2010 (UTC)

I disagree, I have seen many IPs that aren't vandals. And by the way, you committed the fallacy of hasty generalization. It's bad for arguing with anyone who knows basic logic. HaloTalk 20:53, April 8, 2010 (UTC)
You cant take a joke can you? i know alot of ips arent vandals.....however quite a few are 00:07, April 9, 2010 (UTC)
I can take a joke. But that seemed completely serious. And there are plenty of registered vandals too. HaloTalk 00:19, April 9, 2010 (UTC)

Comment - Did you sitenotice it since you seem to have not mentioned anything in the thing above. I remember it being really annoying once when it took a few mins before anyone put up a site notice as I thought that my computer must have gone spastic and locked me out from editing or something.

Yep, wasted no time on that.[1]--Degenret01 08:17, April 8, 2010 (UTC)

Comment - Sounds like it was for the best. You didn't go on a block spree (which we all know turns out horribly), and it was all in the name of defending the motherland. I see no problems with this, and don't really see how any problems arose from 9 minutes. If it was a day, that could have been risky, but 9 seems like no big deal.

Comment - Maybe we should teach sysops how to use range blocks and checkuser(for in the case they are ever given it). - TehKittyCatTalk Wikian-Book 16:08, April 8, 2010 (UTC)

Along with http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Help:Range_blocks for learning about how, http://toolserver.org/~chm/blockcalc.php the utility it mentions can be used to calc the range for you. http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Help:CheckUser is a good page for Checkuser. - TehKittyCatTalk Wikian-Book 16:49, April 8, 2010 (UTC)
In general, neither sysops nor bureaucrats have checkuser. Endasil (Talk) @  19:10, April 8, 2010 (UTC)
[2] Wink --Aburnett(Talk) 20:56, April 8, 2010 (UTC)
Exactly. In general, neither have checkuser. Those are the special cases. Though apparently Kitty said "in the case they are ever given it" so I guess my point was, well...pointless. Endasil (Talk) @  21:57, April 8, 2010 (UTC)

Comment - Looks to me like everything was done by the book. Nice job Degen. Andrew talk 20:35, April 8, 2010 (UTC)

Comment - You made the right call, good job. HaloTalk 20:53, April 8, 2010 (UTC)

Comment - When we had the last major vandal attack there was no Protect site active so why did it get activated this time? We have skilled Rollbackers/Admins who can deal with stuff as fast as it comes up. There was not really a point for it? (Just giving my 2 cents) Twig Talk 772kZGs.png 00:16, April 9, 2010 (UTC)

Actually, we were not quite keeping up. We would block the vandal, revert the vandalism, and he would ALREADY be vandalizing from a new IP. It was at about the fifth or sixth instance that I activated the protect site. How can you ask "why" something happened when the why is already listed at the top of the page? I am fully okay with some criticism but it has to make sense.--Degenret01 01:33, April 9, 2010 (UTC)
Like i said im just giving my 2 cents its not criticism im just wondering why this is one different than the vandal attack on December 13, 2009 when protect site was never activated at any time of the attack Twig Talk 772kZGs.png 01:38, April 9, 2010 (UTC)
I'm pretty sure he JUST told you that. HaloTalk 01:38, April 9, 2010 (UTC)

Comment - I took a quick look at the I.P's and the block log. Good job on the protect site...too bad you didn't know about the range protect, but it's good to know now =)

Comment He should have learned how to do range blocks when he was sysopped. Better late than never though.--Bob quest 04:47, April 9, 2010 (UTC)

The spam edits history

I think I should have listed this before, but for those wondering how much was going on, I believe this is all from the spammer vandal. One IP is a little bit different but the pattern of edits is the same.
