Toontown Rewritten Wiki does not tolerate vandalism as we aim to provide accurate, applicable, and constructive information on all of our articles. It is against the policy for a user to vandalize the wiki, and doing so will result in a caution or block.
Types of action
A verbal caution is the lowest level of action taken towards vandalism. The user will be warned about their action(s) by an administrator/moderator on their talk page. The user will not receive a block. If a user has previously received a verbal caution, they are susceptible to a block.
A caution is a block which consists of under a day. A caution can only be issued once, therefore the next level of action will be issued if the vandalism persists.
A block which usually consists of over a day may be issued. The user may be issued a block without caution in some circumstances.
An indefinite (infinite) block is the highest level of action taken by an administrator/moderator towards vandalism. They are only imposed if a user fails to comply with the policy on multiple occasions. You may contact an administrator if you wish to discuss the matter.
Types of vandalism
Vandalism will result in a block being imposed. If the user has not previously made a contribution, they are susceptible to an extended block. Vandalism may be deemed unintentional if the user was seemingly unaware of causing disruption. If the user has a history of authentic edits, only a verbal caution will be issued; but if the vandalism persists, it may be considered intentional.
Persistent vandalism will result in a block being issued. If the vandalism persists, an indefinite block will be issued. The blocking administrator/moderator will impose the appropriate block length towards the user.
Severe vandalism is a serious matter, and will result in either a length block or indefinite block being issued. The blocking administrator/moderator must determine whether the vandalism is severe.
If you notice a page being vandalized, please take the following actions:
- Undo the vandalism. If you are unsure of doing this, please read here.
- Rollback is another tool that reverts edits with one simple click. Only rollbacks, moderators, and administrators can use this tool.
- Report the user. You should either report the user to an active moderator, administrator, or VSTF.
- Warn the user. You can visit their message wall and warn them of their actions.
