Dealing with vandalism is simple and straightforward — if you find a page that has been vandalized, all you have to do is perform the following steps:

  1. Revert the page to the last unvandalized version.

And that's it! It's that simple!

Caveat: Don't confuse vandalism with really badly edited pages and poor styling.

Vandalism in ProgressEdit

If you believe that a vandal is in the process of defacing multiple pages, add their name to the vandalism in progress page, and list the username or IP address in the edit summary, then save the page. The username or IP address will appear in the Recent changes page, alerting the members of the problem.


The administrators have the ability to block vandals, either by username or by IP address. See bans and blocks for more details.
