On the IP

The editing patterns of the IP appeared to show it to be an unauthorized bot, as its edits often flooded the queue in Huggle. I had no idea how to report this elsewhere from Huggle, so I reported it to AIV. I apologize for handling it incorrectly, I should’ve reported it to ANI. InvalidOS (talk) 01:37, 17 June 2019 (UTC)

No worries, thanks for the clarification. That can be the challenge with Huggle, when you're faced with something that's not quite run-of-the-mill. Best, SpencerT•C 02:06, 17 June 2019 (UTC)
Yeah, it’s not really designed for that. It’s meant to be used to fight vandalism, not report unauthorized bots. InvalidOS (talk) 12:03, 17 June 2019 (UTC)

Possible blockEdit

Bringing this up to you first since you blocked them in the past. This user has been a consistent problem when it comes to adding unsourced content (usually their own interpretations and speculation) to articles. In this edit and this one today, they added unsourced content and then yesterday on Chad Gable (diff) they added "Originally a heel tag team, their fighting spirit, and resiliency against their larger opponents won them many fans and began a gradual face turn". This is entirely their own personal analysis of a storyline. They also remove thousands of bytes of content without leaving edit summaries like they did at List of former Impact Wrestling personnel. After a quick check they removed some names without giving any reason. They have been blocked twice and have been left multiple talk page messages. StaticVapor message me! 22:00, 18 June 2019 (UTC)

About users with repeated vandalismEdit

I am new to Wikipedia as a registered user, especially to English Wikipedia. I saw on the page of a country an obvious vandalism and checked the user who did it. I saw in his Contributions history that he used his user exclusively for vandalism. What is the best approach regarding this issue? Thank you! Teutorigos (talk) 17:30, 19 June 2019 (UTC)Teutorigos
