Multiple IPs on multiple wikis[edit]

Probably others, as well. I started to tag some contributions for deletion before I came to my senses: this is the same ever-changing-IP, number/letter/year-loving, article-count-milestone-jonesing, cross-wiki vandal we've seen all over the place, for years (Decker). - dcljr (talk) 05:26, 14 August 2017 (UTC)

Added a 4th IP. - dcljr (talk) 19:31, 14 August 2017 (UTC)
Hi, I've deleted the pages created by the vandal from wikis with no active admins and also blocked the IPs in those wikis. Regards.--Syum90 (talk) 07:45, 15 August 2017 (UTC)
Thanks, Syum90. Note that hawwiki doesn't have any admins, and there are still page creations by 2600:387:A:5:0:0:0:77 on there. - dcljr (talk) 00:21, 16 August 2017 (UTC)
Hi, the pages on hawwiki have been already deleted by Matiia. Thanks and regards.--Syum90 (talk) 08:36, 16 August 2017 (UTC)[edit]

Please rollback all edits made by at and apply a block - they added deliberately wrong flag images to articles. --XXN (talk) 13:59, 18 August 2017 (UTC)
