Vandalism in the Motu Patlu Wiki can be defined as an intentional placement of spam, or obvious false information within any of the pages of the wiki. Vandals can often vandalize one select page, or many pages before they get caught. Due to previous cases of outrageous vandalism, the Motu Patlu Wiki has little to no tolerance for vandals.
Less Severe Vandalism
Admins are encouraged to assume good faith for users that may have inserted a small amount of not so outrageous vandalism. Giving the user that inserted said false information a warning explaining why what they did was wrong will suffice. If said vandalism continues, just blocking the user is a good idea.
Severe Vandalism can be defined as the vandalism of an entire page/section of a page, or just a small edit with really outrageous statements, or even just widespread vandalism on multiple pages, big or small. Examples of severe vandalism can be found below. Users who vandalize a page severely will often end up being blocked for a long period of time (10 years or above) or indefinitely. Their userpages are usually protected indefinitely as well. While giving them a warning is acceptable, it is usually best to immediately block them.
Any users that were blocked due to vandalism will be given a message telling them that they were blocked. Their userpage will contain the template below.
|Sorry! The user you are currently looking for is blocked until (or) indefinetly/long period of time because of their violation of the rules of the Motu Patlu Wiki. This user will therefore not be able to edit this wiki until the block is lifted. Please see the Rules and Regulations of the Motu Patlu Wiki.|
Additionally, the blocked user's userpage will be protected.
