Comment This may be relevant to the wiki? If we can identify vandals, we might be able to stop them? --Akthanakos camel chathead.png Karimabuseer Talk Azzanadra ghost.png 23:32, February 13, 2010 (UTC)

No, they can't be stopped. The more this wiki grows, the more vandals will appear. White partyhat old.png C Teng talk 03:24, February 14, 2010 (UTC)
The best thing we can do is to simply revert vandalism and block them as we can. More will appear like C Teng said, but we can easily match them with more players who are willing to take action and fix what they break. --HaloTalk 18:21, February 14, 2010 (UTC)

Comment - People vandalise for the same reason people laugh at videos of others being hurt. Some people just like to see others' work go to waste. Ancient talisman.png Oil4 Talk 18:17, February 14, 2010 (UTC)

Comment - This is kind of pointless. The anti-vandalism method we have now is the best, we've had years to think it over. If there was a way to stop vandals before they vandalize we would use that method. Unfortunately, no such method exists. The topic creator has had his question answered, I believe this should be closed. I won't close it myself, though, because I think my administrative judgment of closing threads has weakened over the time of my absence. — Enigma 01:27, February 15, 2010 (UTC)
