Urgent: Don't starve wikia is currently being vandalized

Recommended Posts

minespatch    74510

I'm not a admin so I can't remove created pages by the jerk. I'm trying to revert some pages back to how they were.

https://dontstarve.fandom.com/wiki/Special:RecentChanges?limit=500

If you want to help, check any pages with the recurring troll's name and press history. Find a reliable name among the edits and chose that page to revert. Just press minor edit and you'll save the page.

god and it's the same low effort transphobic jokes as always, huh? like it's not even an actual meme or whatever related to ds, i cant count how many times ive been spammed with that pic

took a look around and it seems theyve been consistently doing this for maybe a day or two now, seems like they're vandalizing other wikis as well

Never trust a Wiki page.. DST needs an official cellphone app from the actual Klei dev’s that can’t be altered and edited by some common Joe or Jane.

At least all the information in the App would be Legit and provided ONLY by the dev team, hey who knows perhaps they might even sneak some lore tidbits in through the App!

But good luck in fixing this I guess?? I mean, it’s a Wiki page.. anyone’s going to be able to edit it and make it Inaccurate.

Guy, the man has been adding pages with racist intent. IT's horrible.

I hate how those peoples are always the same like "haha, pepe frog funny", and show how crappy they are instead of making cool things with depleted meme material. This one guy is good at showcasing how boring they are to folks with common senses.

Also I didn't paid attention if the wiki is often vandalized but I just hope this kind of attacks are not so frequent for the admins. :disturbed:

I check the wiki image uploads daily. So I haven;t seen this happen before until yesterday. It got worse today.

I'm confused; I thought the edited wiki pages had to be run past an admin for confirmation before the edit goes through. That's what happened when I tried editing the cooked stone fruit rot timer from the previous 3 days to the current 2 days a while back. Are there specific wiki pages that ANYONE can edit freely without oversight? Also, is it possible to impose an IP address ban?

That's exactly what happening right now.

Gotcha. Well, according to the notification I got, it seems to be resolved. I hope they make it so that EVERY edit on the wiki has to be verified by an admin or mod; as great as it is that anyone can contribute to a Wiki page, it makes no sense that any anonymous user can INSTANTLY make changes without any oversight.

DS Wiki being vandalized? In that case you just need to do the same thing as with every other griefer ingame:

Page griefed? -> Kick + Rollback

If it's too much work for you then you can only hope that some admin locks the wiki for a few days to avoid any pages being griefed.
Practice makes perfect.

What about making suggestions to article? You could still suggest, that something is wrong + it would have day limit (you can add one per day) and first time can be month from making an account.

Perhaps it's not funny in terms of that others are posting racism and homophobia on the wiki,
but it's funny in terms of the whole drama which occurs right now in the Forum & the Don't Starve game Wiki.

I don't get what is funny about wasting peoples efforts on documenting a game who really needs a conform wiki for beginners such as Don't Starve, (and we should consider us lucky that players are actively improving it). :wilsondisapproving: Especially knowing the guy behind this is obviously not doing it in the interest of the game or its community, in fact the hole opposite, it's also certainly not someone playing the game or if it is... well, it should get into modding to make its funny pepe frog meme instead of forcing peoples to face something with no good intention if not just personal entertainment.

As for drama, it would just fit better to have fun together on forums more than polluting wiki platforms, that's what we're blaming, I believe.

Normally, we don't get stuff like this on the wiki. At most, it's just an anon inserting gibberish/removing stuff once or twice before stopping, which can be easily removed. This one is particularly dedicated, as in, there are 50 accounts we had to ban. Fifty.

In other words: "Where's the fun in bullying other peoples? There's no fun in there because other peoples might become sad. The bullies should stop doing that because it's not fun at all!"

I see you are trying to encourage the forumers here to fight against the griefers in the Don't Starve game Wiki who vandalize the whole wiki with wrong data or with racism and homophobia.

And while doing that, you're also lovely supporting the griefers in their work!

A quick question for everyone here: What's the griefers main goal here? (Hint: It's not only to be evil and to ruin other human's life.)

Spoiler

Answer: It is also to make as much attention as possible and to see the whole drama happening everywhere!

Bullies or griefers do not only want to ruin other peoples life, they also want to get as much attention as possible for their work.
Bullying a pet rock might be fun too: You can punch it or smash it, but it won't show any reaction at all. Forumers on the other hand start screaming once the see something new. And right now, you all are making such a giant mountain out of a tiny molehill.

 

You might be a Lawful Good person, but there is some lack of experience in you:
Just because you are Lawful Good doesn't mean that you can stop a Chaotic Evil person from doing his work.

If you really want to stop the bullies work, then you either need to get rid of the bully, or to make their task as boring as possible.
But the first case appears not to be possible since they can always just make new accounts and keep doing their work.
The second case also appears not to be possible because you all are encouraging the griefers to carry on like that.

You all need to learn how to ignore bullies and how to rollback things without giving any single reaction to their work.
Lock the wiki for a few days might also help since you won't be able to complain about his work and they won't be able to do their work.

But right now, the griefer is just like: gg ez

I think that was supposed to mean "don't feed the trolls".

Oh...this reminds me of that thing years back where people from the U.S. CONGRESS were messing with Wiki pages...mainly to take out trans-people-have-a-right-to-exist content!  Like, this one guy kept messing with the character pages from "Orange is the New Black" and saying things like how the trans-woman character was "a real man pretending to be a woman".

It got so bad that a group got formed of saner people to WATCH for this and de-edit their edits, called "Congress Edits".

...I wish I was kidding...

(EDIT:  There's a swear in the first line, in case anybody worries about that kind of thing.)

Spoiler

Do you remember, back when the idea of finding out that somebody in the government itself was just as DUMB of a sloppy misspelling racist of a troll as any rando 4channer WAS still surprising?

I miss those days.

I mean, I guess we should be glad they probably ARE just random idiots without real power over people this time...

I'm almost thinking that this guy read a guide on internet troll stereotypes before starting.

Racism, check. Anti-Semitism, check. Homophobia, check. Transphobia, check. Graphic porn/gorn pics, check.
 

(Personally, I think the graphic genital/rectum pictures are the worst.)
