Hi Nick! Thanks for helping to clean up the vandalism. Please don't leave taunting messages for him -- it just encourages him to come back and keep "playing" with us. Best thing is just to revert and forget.
I guess that's true, in retrospect. Does Wikia not have the feature where, when blocking, you can check a box and block the IP address that the person is using? It works quite well on Wikipedia in stopping most sockpuppets.
Yeah, we do. Unfortunately, sometimes folks have floating IPs, because they sign in from a service like AOL, so it's not a perfect system. You can also get around it by going to a friend's house, or the library, or whatever. So we block IPs for persistent people like the guy yesterday, but it's still possible to slip through once in a while.
