Hi Dan! This user has made a lot of edits on your userpage which weren't too useful, so I just told you about them. And in his/her name there is the word "BOT" which can be misleading. --BanKris (talk) 10:05, 15 April 2017 (UTC)

And User:ClitheroeBot as well. They dindn't do any useful up to now. --BanKris (talk) 10:10, 15 April 2017 (UTC)
Thanks @BanKris:, maybe we shuld have them blocked as well...Dan Koehl (talk) 10:26, 15 April 2017 (UTC)
And I have one more question: What should I do when I see vandalism during patrolling? Do we have a page for "Report vandalism" or I have to ask for somebody? And if we have not got any page for that it could be useful to make one. Thanks for the answer, BanKris (talk) 16:51, 16 April 2017 (UTC)
Hello @BanKris: My advise is to add a vandalism template to the vandal's talk page, however please chose wisely among the different templates so that it correlates to the severity of the malevolent act. For instance using the {{Uw-vandalism4}} template to hit a fairly innocent edit by a newcomer with a note in bold text shouting "This is your last warning. The next time you vandalize Wikispecies, you may be blocked from editing without further notice!" is of course over the top, and counterproductive.
The use of those templates is fairly well monitored by admins and bureaucrats, and together with the data we gather from Recent Changes (in combination with lists of unpatrolled edits) that's generally enough. In particularly severe cases of vandalism I recommend also adding a heads-up on the Administrators' Noticeboard, which is monitored 24/7 by yours truly and other admins. All the best wishes, and happy editing, Tommy Kronkvist (talk), 17:27, 16 April 2017 (UTC).
@Tommy Kronkvist:, @Dan Koehl: Thank you very much! --BanKris (talk) 17:34, 16 April 2017 (UTC)
