The vandalism only account's modus operandi seems to be vandalize high traffic pages on Miraheze wikis, namely by vandalizing the [[Main Page]] directly or by uploading new versions of unprotected images shown on said [[Main Page]]. I've reverted and deleted, as appropriate, the vandalism; however, I have also increased your [[Main Page]] protection level to <code>[[m:Meta:Autoconfirmed users|autoconfirmed]]</code> and upload protected two images at <code>[[m:Meta:Administrators|sysop]]</code> shown on said [[Main Page]]. In addition, the user's account(s) have been globally locked on the Miraheze farm.

Steward notification regarding recent CVT actions taken[edit | edit source]

Dear Electowiki Bureaucrats,

I just wanted to advise you of some interim vandalism prevention actions I've taken as a Steward as part of recent vandalism by a crosswiki vandalism only account, Chairman. The vandalism only account's modus operandi seems to be vandalize high traffic pages on Miraheze wikis, namely by vandalizing the Main Page directly or by uploading new versions of unprotected images shown on said Main Page. I've reverted and deleted, as appropriate, the vandalism; however, I have also increased your Main Page protection level to autoconfirmed and upload protected two images at sysop shown on said Main Page. In addition, the user's account(s) have been globally locked on the Miraheze farm.

As Electowiki:Bureaucrats' noticeboard hadn't yet been created, I'm providing this notice here. Please feel free to change the temporary measures put in place by Stewards.

Thanks,

Thanks for being on top of this and fixing things up, meta:User:Dmehus, and thanks User:Kristomun and User:Dr. Edmonds for raising the alarm. The elevated permission levels that meta:User:Dmehus put in place for the Main Page and the logos (File:Electowiki.svg and File:Electowiki-rectangle.svg) seem appropriate to me and probably good long-term solutions. -- RobLa (talk) 04:25, 17 February 2021 (UTC)

2020 and earlier[edit | edit source]

We didn't have a noticeboard last year. The Electowiki:Administrators and Electowiki:Bureaucrats would mainly just keep an eye on the Special:Recent_changes page and react to weird changes that happened there. -- RobLa (talk) 08:35, 18 February 2021 (UTC)
