Revert warring[edit]

Hey there!

Thanks for your help with fighting LTAs. I noticed you got in an revert war with an LTA on DannyS712's talk page. Could you avoid this in the future for a few reasons? It was a harmless edit, reverting just encourages them, and it's an abusive username so now the history has to be revdeleted multiple times. I know you had good intentions as I have found myself doing this time and time again on my homewiki, but this LTA wants you to get in a revert war with them. By ignoring them, they go away or at least cause less of a mess. There is some good info at Meta:Admin handbook#Long-term_abuse. ~riley (talk) 06:18, 27 January 2020 (UTC)

Hi ~riley, if I still were an admin here, I would have blocked them on sight just for their user name, regardless of any edits. I didn't mean to revert them five times, but reverting them was my only option for getting attention of a Meta admin, since WM:RFH is quite useless in acute situations and I had no way of knowing how many more pages they would vandalise. I really wondered why it took so long before (in this case) Bsadowski1 turned up. By the way, my experience both as a steward and as an admin on half a dozen projects does not lead me to believe that LTAs generally go away when they're ignored. However, I do get your point, as this is a non-content wiki. Would you rather have me not patrol recent changes on Meta anymore and leave the vandals to the admins? Regards, Wutsje (talk) 07:12, 27 January 2020 (UTC)
Hey Wutsje, totally get how you would have approached it if you were still an admin or steward and I agree that RFH is useless for active vandalism. A ping on IRC, as you might know, is the fastest option for an admin or steward to intervene as we don't often patrol recent changes considering it being a non-content wiki. I am not trying to educate in any way and while I knew your experience going into leaving the above note, I think it's worth mentioning nonetheless. While they won't simply go away, we also don't need to revdelete 6 edits/12 edit summaries and make a mess out of a talk page. This specific LTA is pretty predicable and you may have just made yourself a target moving forward, although i'm sure you're no stranger to that. Appreciate you listening to my rant! :) ~riley (talk) 07:32, 27 January 2020 (UTC)


Waarom word ik geblokkeerd, terwijl de enige echte vandalen constant of voortdurend alle Wiki's maar blijven terroriseren en anderen lastigvallen, want dat is iets wat er bij mij echt niet in kan: vind jij dat nu ook niet de omgekeerde wereld of de wereld op zijn kop?

Beste Bart, het antwoord op al dit soort vragen vind je hier. Neem er overigens notie van, dat ik geen enkele behoefte heb om hierover te discussiëren, niet op Meta en niet op een ander WMF-project. Ik zie dat je hier inmiddels bent geblokkeerd, maar mocht je elders pogingen ondernemen om hierover door te gaan, dan zal ik niet aarzelen om een global lock voor je aan te vragen. Ik hoop dat ik hiermee voldoende duidelijk ben. Met vriendelijke groet, Wutsje (talk) 17:19, 14 February 2020 (UTC)
