A WikiTroll is a person who purposefully defaces a document on a wiki. This is a very bad thing to do. There are a few methods in place for dealing with WikiTrolls.
How to revert a page
Any page can be reverted back to a previous version. Here's how: Simply click "history" at the top of the page you wish to roll back. Then click on the time and date of the archived version you want to revert back to. The page will appear with the version indicated at the top of the page, just underneath the page title. Next, click "edit" at the top of the page. Add a note in the Summary box that you are reverting the page because of a troll, and then click "Save page". Report the IP or username to this page.
After repeated defacings, an offender's IP address can be blocked.
If you see any suspicious, defamatory, or objectionable behavior by any individuals on our wiki, please add their IP address or username to the list following the same format as the example shown below. For our purposes, an "offense" is defined as the defacement of a single document of our wiki.
This table format might be a bit confusing, if you don't understand how the table works, just put the offender's IP or username, the date, and what he or she did at the bottom of the page.
Copy this and paste it when editing for adding a new troll to the list. Replace anything in the square brackets - [ ] - with what it says to put.
