I've deleted the page. No need to take another action for now. Matiia (talk) 02:24, 27 April 2017 (UTC)

Vandalism on Meta[edit]

This section is for reports of vandalism on this wiki. Please place reports about other wikis in the section above.

Turkisk Wikipedia might be vulnerable[edit]

I'm not sure this is the correct place to report this, but TurkeyBlocks has reported that Wikipedia is now blocked in Turkey. While this is bad for many reasons, it does also mean that most local users & sysops probably don't have access to the site right now, which leaves it vulnerable to vandalism from non-Turkish users. Might be worth keeping an eye on it. InsaneHacker (talk) 11:27, 29 April 2017 (UTC)
