Someone, apparently a priest in the Vatican is active in the Internet under the name of, "Angelic Man". There is an article about him at Angelic Man. His website has changed but I once found hate speech there. That was why I restored an article I had previously deleted. I can't confirm whether "Angelic Man" has been threatening people but Liberapedia editors have threatened him. I deleted the worst material.
There are unstable people who provoke each other online and make each other worse and we can't prevent such material appearing at YouTube, Reddit, 4Chan and other similar websites. Still I hope Wikia is a place where users are safe from intimidation. The user who repeatedly downloaded that video is blocked till January at Liberapedia and Atheism Wiki which I hope will solve the problem. Still you may feel a need to ensure nothing goes wrong at other Wikia Wikis. Also if "Angelic Man" starts an account you may need to check how he edits and take appropriate action if needed.
Hello, Sannse. Over on GTA Wiki, we have a user who initially caused major vandalism, so we warranted him a permanent block. Unfortunately, despite his IP address was blocked, he's continuously made new accounts with the same name, just another number on the end.
As of now, he's created 25 accounts. here is just one of the 25 accounts he's created. Here's the original account. We've blocked all from chat, and blocked all from Wiki permanently, blocking IP and talk page edits, but he's still making accounts constantly. Could you please do something, if possible? I suggest a global ban, but it says on his original account he's already been globally blocked. Not sure what you can do, but at all costs, this needs to stop. Thank you
Hi Monkeypolice. Can you send this to us via Special:Contact so we can talk about it in private? Please include my name in the message, so it comes to me. It's going to take a while to do the checks so I'll start now, and I don't want my collegues to duplicate the work!
I explained to Monkeypolice in chat, but just to add it here: we generally recommend that IPs are not blocked for more than 3 months. By that time, it's very likely that the person's IP will have changed and so the block won't be affecting them any more. And it's possible that someone innocent is useing that IP instead.
There are rare situations where an IP needs to be blocked for longer (for example, the stable IP of a school where students are repeatedly coming here to vandalize) but most IPs are not assigned to the same person long-term, so usually 3 months is best.
This is especially true when blocking a range of IPs. These are more likely to affect innocent people, because you are blocking many IPs at once. It's more iikely the bad editor is going to stay within that range, but it's worth trying out removing it after a while to see if it can be left off.
Of course, in all of this, it's the admin and their community's decision
Dank (the guy you blocked yesterday) is started to bug me and sent his sock in to my wiki a minute ago,and said he is going to try to get my wiki closed for "threatening Trollpasta" even though those pages were deleted. None of the pages were even threatening!
