How to deal with vandalism Edit

Normal Users Edit

If you notice someone vandalize a page, firstly remove the vandalism. We do not want readers finding a vandalized article, especially if it uses swear words as there are young readers out there. Then, notify an administrator. Alternatively, you can report it. There is a link at the bottom of each article. explain the problem there.

Rollback and Admins Edit

Administrators and users with rollback are allowed to place the vandalism template on the user talk page of the vandal. To do this, type {{subst:Vandalism|Article name}}

If you have rollback and you notice a user vandalize after receiving a warning, please notify an administrator and they will deal with it from there.
