Hi all, I've enabled protectsite to prevent account creations by a vandal who likes page-move vandalism, and keeps on coming back for more. Since all of the accounts are created here, disabling anonymous creation of accounts for 12 hours is a good idea, in my mind, and others. Please also note that this only effects account creations. ajr 22:01, December 12, 2010 (UTC)

Oh, ya, for those curious, the vandal is using proxies, and a different one each time. I've rangeblocked all the proxies that he has used up to this point. ajr 22:02, December 12, 2010 (UTC)

Why make this topic? If anyone feels the need to start heavy drama over the lock, they'll just designate your talk page as Ground Zero.

(Also, no heavy drama over the lock, please.) --Andorin (Talk) (Contribs) 22:04, December 12, 2010 (UTC)

I only made this because the policy says that I need to, for whatever reason. Otherwise I wouldn't have, as this might just be fuelling the fire. ajr 22:05, December 12, 2010 (UTC)

Comment - 'kay. What are we supposed to discuss on this thread? svco4bY.png3Gf5N2F.png 22:15, December 12, 2010 (UTC)

If you think that I am crazy, and or if the protection should be removed. ajr 22:25, December 12, 2010 (UTC)
Oh, well..... you are kinda crazy (you have a wikimedia cloak :O), but I think it was an okay move. svco4bY.png3Gf5N2F.png 22:27, December 12, 2010 (UTC)

Update: Because the vandal found a way to circumvent the protection and create accounts, sysop-only move protection was put into place for 12 hours. Use speedy move if you need a page moved or ask an admin. --Andorin (Talk) (Contribs) 23:23, December 12, 2010 (UTC)

Update - Account creation has been re-enabled. Pages can still only be moved by sysops. --Aburnett(Talk) 23:50, December 12, 2010 (UTC)

[18:53] <joeyaa> OK it's all set up
[18:53] <joeyaa> If you have anymore issues drop into #wikia-vstf
[18:54] <joeyaa> Users can't move subpages without autoconfirmed

Protectsite has been removed accordingly. --Aburnett(Talk) 23:58, December 12, 2010 (UTC)

Unarchived Gotta leave it up for a few days so people can discuss it if they like, not just while it is enabled. Also, it would not hurt to list some of the IPs that were being used so people can easily see what was being done.--Degenret01 00:05, December 13, 2010 (UTC)

It's all in the block log. ajr 00:06, December 13, 2010 (UTC)
Yes, it is. And when people review this in 3, 5, 10, and 180 days, they will know which part of that log is related to this thread how? It just makes sense to list it here at this time. I speak from experience. Forum:Protect_site_enabled_by_Degenret01_on_8_April_2010 Some people kept questioning exactly why I needed to enable the protect site the last time I did. Listing the IPs and events put an end to it.--Degenret01 00:20, December 13, 2010 (UTC)
List of accounts blocked by Ajraddatz moved to the above. -Stelercus 01:33, December 13, 2010 (UTC)
