Dealing with vandalism is simple and straightforward — if you find a page that has been vandalized, all you have to do is perform the following steps:
- Revert the page to the last unvandalized version.
And that's it! It's that simple!
Caveat: Don't confuse vandalism with really badly edited pages, poor styling, and other bold edits.
Vandalism in ProgressEdit
If you believe that a vandal is in the process of defacing multiple pages, add their name to the vandalism in progress page, and list the username or IP address in the edit summary, then save the page. The username or IP address will appear in the Recent Changes page, alerting the members of the problem.
