Wiki Vandalism And Reporting It

A wiki I help out has been dealing with a lone individual going through every article and rewriting everything and basically removing all the information.  Unfortunately, I don't have admin rights there, so I can't do anything myself.  So, is there a report system or anything in place I can utilize?


I don't have copies of everything, so the repair work I can do is minimal.


The vandal in question uses the name Darkstar665.

I have submitted a report on the vandalism to a 'volunteer' group that works across the wiki network as a whole on such matters.

Well you should message who ever is in charge of that wikia, the founder.

The volunteer group has now blocked the vandal's account.

Congratulations, then. So then, are you going to join this wikia? As I said I'd look forward towards writing fanfic with you and others you might bring with you from former SM. like I told Icey, he should try to get you FS and the others from SM here.

I've not written fanfiction in years, but we'll see how that goes.

Though, of course, *sigh*, I have to do some work on restoring and unvandalizing a wiki now.

I could help of course if you'd want.

But like I said, I would very much enjoy a co-run project with you.

Ugh, now have to figure out how to do moved pages and URL renames.  Fun.

Seems like the guy who blocked him is using his cross-wiki admin powers to roll-back and/or undo the edits.
