Rule Violations Reports - 68

Please report any rule violations in this thread. Notifying us of such incidents is highly appreciated.

Additionally, kindly report any sockpuppets that you come across.

Only report violations regarding the wiki rules. False reports due to personal vendettas are unacceptable.

Also, this thread should be for reporting actual rule-breaking, not every single little disagreement.

In cases of extreme vandalism or trolling, you can report the accounts at the VSTF wiki.

If blocked members create sockpuppet accounts to circumvent their block repetitively, or several are created at almost the same time, you may contact the Fandom Staff, to politely request permanent range IP blocks.

You can also find specific users with the Search Function by typing with the format: "User:Username"

Here is a useful page for discovering sockpuppet accounts: https://vsbattles.fandom.com/wiki/Special:Log/newusers

Notes:

All staff members, kindly follow and bookmark this thread.

Remember to inform members via their message walls if that you have reported them here, in case they have performed severe enough rule-violations to risk being blocked. However, this should only be used in uncertain cases, not if they have done something instantly ban worthy, or if their offenses are minor.

It is against the Fandom rules to upload any offensive images to the wiki, so in order to show screencapture evidence of extremely bad behaviour, you must use external sites, such as Gyazo or Imgur, in order to not get globally banned yourself by the higher-ups:

https://gyazo.com

https://imgur.com/

https://pasteboard.co

Do not derail the Rule Violation Threads with irrelevant nonsense or internal disputes. It is solely for making serious, warranted reports of violations of the Site, Discussio, and Editing Rules, and not for discussion or side comments. Such posts should preferably be removed by the staff, and if a member continues to derail after being repeatedly told to stop, this will result in a temporary ban.

Given the extreme levels of systematic harrassment towards this community, kindly remember to not share/post any evidence of malware or child abuse publicly in order to prevent unwillful distribution. Submit any evidence of child abuse and severe systematic threats to the police.

If something goes outside the jurisdiction of the VS Battles wiki bureaucrats, or even the global Fandom staff, you need to report it personally to the authorities.

Also, absolutely do not click on any random links from suspicious users. You could potentially access content that contains dangerous malware or illegal types of pornography, alternately tracks your IP address and location. If you are uncertain, please use this page to verify that the links are not dangerous.

However, do not feed the trolls by discussing their behaviour here, as they get excited and motivated by any form of attention. Strictly report them to the staff, who then block them and mass-delete their contributions.

If there are genuine serious problems with the behaviour of certain staff members, do not cause drama by extensively arguing about it here, but rather contact the Human Resources Group.

We should never take a troll's word as fact on these matters.

If they say "I'm a troll sockpuppet of this guy", and we take them seriously, we are basing our entire argument (one which may have major consequences) entirely on someone who's actively trying to stir up drama and controversy.

Absolutely no reason to consider it reliable.

I recently created a character page called Yang Guo, it was deleted by AKM sama.

Please may I know the reason why?

Also how am I allowed to create a character page?

The character I want to introduce is a canon character.

I'm going to ask that this user be banned permanently on the ground of impersonation. For some reason the original post was completely ignored, but he originally named himself after Blaze in order to bait his attention. He's now changed his name to the name I use on Discord, you can check my profile for the fact that's my listed tag and can ask others because they'd back him up. It seems it's somebody who knows our Discord usernames trying to claim they're us on this wiki. I think we all know why that is a no no.

Wait do you have the account link? That seems really weird for him to do, his account name doesn't have 2 ps and his account says he's inactive. Might be an impersonation.

I also agree that an permaban might be too much, and he is apparently friendly with DarkDragonMedeus. However I'm not entirely sure if he should be immediately brought back.

I dont think that ImagineBreaker turned out to be an alternative account of his, but I do not remember so well.

Could you ask if it was actually him who pulled that stunt last night? If it wasn't him, I think I'd be personally fine with letting him back.

Edit: I read what he said. Probs should've done that first. Yeah, I'm fine with him back.

Well, a permanent ban seems too harsh in any case, and I think that it seemed uncertain if he really was ImagineBreaker.

ZaStando has already requested multiple times to be unbanned that were all rejected, what's different now? Letting him back in sets a bad precedent that any banned user can just beg and pester the staff as many times as they want until they get their way. ZaStando was already given chances before to improve, he didn't and that resulted in his permaban, worst yet he created socks to circumvent them. That's something we have given permabans for.

Okay. I assumed it was another troll account since their first edit was vandalising a profile by making them tier 1, and we're having a non-stop influx of trolls at the moment.

In that case, I can simply give him a warning and see if they comply.

EDIT: I unblocked them and left a warning message. Should keep an eye out for now.

The user has been around since 2019 on other wikis with singular edits, it's more likely that they are just an inexperienced editor rather than a troll.

I looked at them on other wikis, they aren't doing anything bad on other sites and they have had a fandom account for a couple months. I don't think they're a troll.

I trust our many prior re-evaluations where we agreed that he should stay banned. I don't like users repeatedly asking for unbans until they happen to ask at a time where the usual presenters of evidence aren't there to argue against it.

If he can dig up all the other times he's asked for an unban, so that we can contact the people who argued against it before, and look at what arguments they made, I'd be more willing to consider it. But his current actions where he just asks to be unbanned, while only providing counterarguments to vague ideas in his head or to recent posts in this thread isn't sufficient for me.

Good Point @Agnaa

I believe constantly asking to be unbanned is immature and not a good signal. Maybe not infinite time, but at least a couple more months.

I read ZaStando's stuff, he seems to have a couple good points. Does he want to be unbanned or get his ban time shortened? However, others have brought up good points against him, such as the standard it would set.

Even in ZaStando's unban pleas, he comes off as being unreasonably aggressive and notice how he attempts to shift the conversation away from himself to bring up his irrelevant beef with people off-site. It only shows ZaStando has learned nothing from what got him banned in the first place and bringing him back will only lead to more drama being instigated by him. With that being said, ZaStando should remain banned and we should stop entertaining his demands, it is a waste of our time.

What's scummy about this is the way he's going about this. He could approach a staff member on their message wall on another wiki or on Discord and ask to have his message relayed to other administrators, but he instead deliberately chose to instead create at least two (maybe more) sockpuppets and clog up the RVT with his ban appeal instead, which he knows full well is against the rules.

Hard no. He can go to BeyonderGod's wiki or something.

No one deserves the displeasure of FictionalBattleOmniverse. I remember that guy used to beef with Ant on Factpile, he even kept on changing the Kami-Tenchi page with Ant back and forth.

I blocked the troll, but too bad my Wham script hasn't registered yet. I created the application, but need to wait for a Fandom staff to activate it or something.

Once again, I'm fine with less time. To those that want him banned forever (which I do understand), IF he was going to be unbanned, how long should he still be banned for? And don't say 99 years or something.

I still don't think we should unban period. I said this on his direct post and I'll say it again, his responses feel more like him trying to rip at people who went against him rather than good defenses. He keeps mentioning my name, Blaze, Shadow, Myhero, etc. in very negative manners because we all had some part in getting either him or his socks banned. Even IF we did unban him, he's showing right now he's wanting to be aggressive rather than making an attempt to reconcile things. He's very likely to continue this behavior if he gets unbanned. And he's outright excluding information and lying in regard to what he's saying. He tried to say he's never said anything about Imagine, but he's completely being untruthful. There was entire discussion where Imagine posted screenshots of what ZaStando was saying in regard to the accusations, it was evaluated and they were both still banned. Unbanning him just because he's been under one for a long time isn't a good reason. That's literally like letting a serial killer back into society after 20 years when they had a life long sentence. They were placed under that restriction for a good reason. It completely defeats the purpose of an infinite block and sets a bad precedent for the future regarding these type of bans.

Hm, it's based off of a fictional book, but it is religous. We have pages for fictional characters based off the devil, would this be a similar scenario?

It is a much more sensitive issue to use a religious work for a deity that the 2 biggest world religions consider extremely important.

Those seem less serious. This is a very prominent classic text that is close to the source material. I am very uncertain about this.

I suppose that is a valid point. I just want us to avoid great controversy with religious people.

I think that, as long as we don't make a profile of the actual Jesus from the Bible, we should be fine. It was specified to be from "Paradise Lost".

It's not page it self, but the kind of shit that can happen if people use the character of jesus, or one very close image, in Vs Debates.

Aside from that, the statistics were kinda of questionable, Massively FTL+ cus "moving from the farthers reaches of reality to earth" and universal "creating the whole universe" needed elaboration.

We also have countless Satan profiles, and there are also people who worship Satan, and few other incarnations of controversial dudes

If that was a real Jesus profile, of course it would be offensive if there were matches, but this is just incarnation in other media

I agree with Newendigo. It is an unnecessary risk, and there isn't enough material to properly base the statistics on anyway.

@Antvasima

Wouldn't that be their fault for believing a depiction of Jesus from a poem that is widely understood as "non-canon" to the Bible is offensive in some way? Simply explain the profile to them and if they don't like it, tell them to ignore the profile. If they cause problems, report it and take corrective action.

Also, has there ever been a case of someone being offended over a somewhat ""close"" depiction of Jesus on the wiki before?

As well there can be nazis offended by Hitler losing to some character or Satanists offended by any incarnation Satan losing.
