Wikiversity has not had a large amount of vandalism.

Amount of blocked users in Wikiversity (August 2006 until August 2007)












  • August 2007- 19 blocks
  • July 12 blocks
  • June 39 blocks
  • May 29 blocks
  • April 29 blocks
  • March 9 blocks -Wikiversity:Open Proxies completed
  • February 9 blocks
  • January 2007- 19 blocks
  • December 2006- 9 blocks -Wikiversity:Open Proxies started
  • November 15 blocks
  • October 5 blocks
  • September 24 blocks
  • August 2006- 17 blocks (half a month only)

Back in April we started discussing the idea of CheckUser policy for Wikiversity. We are asking all Wikiversity custodians to participate at Nominations for CheckUser.

After "March -Wikiversity:Open Proxies completed" the number of blocked user accounts is higher than before. Is this due to that Wikiversity attracts now the "real" h.ck.rs - seeking a challenge - after introducing Wikiversity:Open Proxies ? Or some other reasons (like press news increased, existing users tell their friends about to join WV, ...) ? ----Erkan Yilmaz (evaluate me!, discussion) 08:05, 1 September 2007 (UTC)
My guess is that one or two persistent vandals discovered Wikiversity at about the same time (April). --JWSchmidt 16:28, 1 September 2007 (UTC)
