A local administrators blocked, though I cleaned up the residual vandalism. For future references, it's always better to report things like this on the VSTF Wiki. I was still asleep when you left me this message, though the VSTF is a rather international team, spanning a lot of different time zones, so chances are someone else would've noticed and taken care of it sooner :-)
I saw that you deleted some articles in the greek Uncyclopedia "Frikipedia". Could you just delete the following articles?

Always feel free to modify any of our blocks. Generally, we block for a generic time depending on the type of vandalism/words used while vandalizing etc. but if the local administrators feel that we've been too harsh or not harsh enough, know that you will always have the last say in these matters :-)
I've mad the experience that those trolls without an account don't come back (at least not with the same IP) after some weeks of being blocked, so your two weeks seem reasonable to me. If he or she comes back, I'll block them for longer.
My name is Denisa, but you know me by my user name Winx_Girl99. Anyway I like to discuss with you, because you block my account for spam and I really do not know what mistake I have been made and this is I think the second time when it happens. It said that a few days ago that you block me for spam, but to be honest I do not understand why, because as far as I know I haven' t been broke any rule that I know. Therefore I didn't understand why and I have been very scared to lose my account. If I had done something that is wrong please tell me what is it and maybe we could settle the problem. Anyway I work very hard on my account and I don't want to lose it, because I decided this summer to create my own wikia and I have more thing that I want to do or write.
In that message was written that my curent IP adreess is 188.8.131.52 and my block ID is 189103. The perios of blocking was first until on June and from the last time it was said until July.
Like I said I want to solve this problem without any complications that could affect my account and my person because I always have been a nice person who respect the rules and the others too. That's why please tell me how to solve this.
I'm sorry to hear that you got caught in an IP block again. I first want to assure you that you do not need to fear losing your account. You can still use it -as demonstrated just now- as it's only that one specific IP that was blocked due to someone else having misused it to spam.
To solve this, the block either needs to be lifted, or you'll have to use a different IP as you are now. I am sorry for the inconvenience you're having due to this. It's always sad when good users are caught in actions put in place to stop spam/vandalism :-/
No need to thank me for answering, it's basic courtesy, considering I'm responsible for you having this problem ^^". IPs are interchangeable, meaning that they switch from time to time - as yours did now, as you're able to edit. If you ever run into this block again, you could always try to restart your modem or something, which generally switches your IP. I'm pretty sure a quick Google search will teach you other ways to do so.
The important thing you really need to take away from all this is that it is not you that was blocked. You just happen to share an IP range with someone who has bad intention on Wikia. This just shows that it's always possible for users - no matter how good their actions are - to run into an IP block. It can literally happen to anyone, sadly enough (it has happened to me a couple of times as well).
Anyway I have read something yesterday and somehow the IP is connected somehow with the computer, but from all I had read is said that I can not change the IP, so this is might be a problem. Even though I hope that all be alright. I hope so......
Many thanks for helping out with the clean up on Star Warfare Wiki just then!
Just wondering if I can ask about how you managed to delete only the replies to Message Wall threads without deleting the entire thread itself: is that a global-level ability that local sysops can't access?
I gave that a shot earlier, but it usually redirects me to [Message Wall: Recipient] of whoever's wall the thread was on. I'll check my settings again later if given the chance, but that's the only instance I've had an issue with deletions so far. Thanks for the advice Noreplyz.
It was on Joseph's wall, who is an admin and VSTF. He'll get to it when he can. Also, when you report someone, you need to provide links to the conversation as well as the name of the user causing the problems.
