  • Hi, have you had any thought on adopting this wiki?

    • Why do you ask?

      P.S. Sorry for taking so long to answer, I had other things I had to deal with.

    • I was only asking considering there isn't really any active administrator on this wiki.

  • The person you were dealing with is the same one as earlier this year. It took me about 15 seconds to figure that out, so that should be an indication about how obvious he is in announcing he's back. I have the same advice for you as I did then: don't put personal comments in the edit summaries and don't bother talking to him, which includes quoting things he said.

    • He came back under a new IP address a half day after I left you this message. Stop holding conversations in the Edit Summary. You are helping him by doing so. People like this know they're committing vandalism and attempting to change their mind won't work. Even if there was a chance they would, you hold that conversation on their User Talk page or their Message wall, not in the Edit Summary.

      "He came back under a new IP address a half day after I left you this message.": What does that have to do with me? "Stop holding conversations in the Edit Summary. You are helping him by doing so.": Sorry. That was not my intention. "People like this know they're committing vandalism and attempting to change their mind won't work. Even if there was a chance they would, you hold that conversation on their User Talk page or their Message wall, not in the Edit Summary.": I did do so when he started vandalizing my profile page.

  • Edit summaries should be used to describe what was changed on the page. When dealing with an edit that was vandalism, keep it simple, such as "vandalism" or "reverting vandalism". They really shouldn't be used to hold a conversation.

    By holding a conversation in the edit summaries, you were encouraging the vandal to keep going and giving them the attention they were looking for. The less you say to them and the fewer personal comments you make, the less they get out of it and the faster it stops being fun for them.

    In this case, both of the anonymous editors you were talking to are likely the same person I've dealt with for over two years now. He's a nuisance, but nothing I can't handle.

    • Can I ask why?

    • Because he is still trying to provoke both of us. By closing this message, it will be that much less attention we are giving him.
