    Default Because of vandalism?

    I find myself unable to edit Bulbapedia because "administrators are in bed". Why is this bad? Why are so many user names created? When will normal editing resume?

    Bulbapedia's been having a major vandal problem lately. They just locked down the server in order to try and regain order.

    Can we disable account creation instead? I would like to edit again. ;_;

    I've seen this vandalism ever since it started, and boy is this guy insane. Normal people would have gotten bored by now. I've also heard he vandalized Wikipedia as well. Is there any way to find his ISP and contact it? That's my suggestion on how to deal with it.

    Well, he is obviously using a proxy otherwise the administrators would have been able to block him by now. There are ways to prevent proxy vandals, for example, vBulletin has a modification that can be added to it that detects proxies and blocks their access to the boards. I've never administered a wiki, so I'm not sure if their are any similar add-ins like that which can be used, however, the individuals will get bored after a while, I'm sure.

    EDIT: Also, this is my first post here. Hello everyone :)

    Welcome Great Snorlax. And yes, this guy is a real asshole. He makes accounts that insult the admins. (e.g. Maverick Nate is a serial rapist, Kenji-girl's vagina is soaking wet after contact with Grawp's massive cock, and SKETCH'S ANUS IS WIDENED BY GRAWP'S MASSIVE COCK, and so on...) and he's just being a total asshole.

    Well, I'm just glad to see that the server is unlocked. Let's just hope it never comes to this again.

    It'll probably happen again in two years. But for now, let's just relax.
    Did I mention that one of the billion socks the little ass created was "Alpha Totodile is a fucking furfag"?

    He's not slowing down. However, we essentially have it under control, since we can block his accounts faster than he can create them. Late at night, we'll probably lock the database since few administrators are online, but we'll reopen it early in the morning and keep it unlocked through the day, unless the problem gets really bad. We're doing all we can, so bear with us.\

    And yes, Grawp did vandalize Wikipedia. Along with a host of other wikis. He's pretty notorious, actually, for a lonely kid sitting in his basement.

    That wouldn't be fair to the people who want to join Bulbapedia that aren't intending to vandalize the place.

    Surprised he never insulted me. However, by looking at the names, it is definitely Grawp. I just thought: possibly Grawp is related to Poryhack and Fenzo666?

    Unless they go to ED, I doubt it.

    He could at least make more creative names like Ph34r did...:PP
