So I'm asking this for future reference. Let's say you have a troublemaker and you ban them, but they just make a new username in response. What do you do then? Zicoihno (Talk to Me) 23:41, March 28, 2012 (UTC)


When you ban a troublemaker, check the box that says "account creation disabled". After being blocked, the user cannot make an account from the same computer. This isn't a perfect solution, as people can usually change their IP address, but most users give up after being blocked once or twice. If it really becomes a huge issue, Wikia can block a range of IP's (for example, a school or public library) so that they cannot edit. Iggyvolz 23:46, March 28, 2012 (UTC)
Thanks, that's good to know. I'll keep that in mind.Zicoihno (Talk to Me) 23:51, March 28, 2012 (UTC)
