Sasukepedia definition of vandalism

This is the definition of vandalism for the purposes of this policy:

  1. Removing valid content without explanation or an explanation that makes no sense.
  2. Items listed in the Do not post policy.
  3. Pretending to remove other vandalism content in order to prevent cleaning. This includes minor edits or minor removals while leaving a bulk of unwanted content ("spam"), but making a comment as if you removed the unwanted content.

Cleaning vandalism

An act of vandalism can be removed or reverted with only a comment in the edit summary identifying the type of vandalism (usually spam, unexplained deletes, etc.). Disagreement with the edit should be posted in the related discussion page.

Record of vandals

Vandals should have their user name added to the known vandals list with a some note on the type or level of vandalism and optionally any cleaning information.

Blocking vandals

Warning templates
PageName is optional

Blocking by an admin will occur after a certain number of acts of vandalism, the length of time will depend on the number of acts, and a note to that effect will be added to known vandals list:

  • If the user is seen to be posting with non-malicious intent, they should get a warning from the admin before a block occurs.
  • If the vandalizing user is obviously controlled by a bot (user), the block will be indefinite.
# of Acts Vandalism Block Time
1 act 7 days (168 hours)
5 acts 1 - 3 months
10 acts 1 year
20+ acts ∞ (permanent)

Note that the above list is a guide and the length will also depend on the style and severity of the vandalism.

For reference you can look at the list of currently blocked users or the log of users who have been blocked.
