((AIV|n)) Note: ((UAA|n)) Note: ((RFPP|n)) Note:
((AIV|q)) Question: ((UAA|q)) Question: ((RFPP|q)) Question:
((AIV|chk)) Checking: ((UAA|wt)) Wait until the user edits. ((RFPP|ch)) Checking to see if protection is necessary.
((AIV|w)) Warned user. ((UAA|m)) Keep monitoring the user, until their username is more clear. ((RFPP|s)) Semi-protected
((AIV|i)) Insufficient recent activity to warrant a block. ((UAA|d)) Being discussed with the user. ((RFPP|pd)) Pending-changes protected
((AIV|f)) No vandalism since final warning. Re-report if this user resumes vandalising. ((UAA|dc)) Being discussed with the user, since they have edited constructively. ((RFPP|p)) Fully protected
((AIV|ow)) Stale warning. ((UAA|v)) User has vandalized. ((RFPP|m)) Move protected
((AIV|m)) Will actively monitor user. ((UAA|ep)) User has edited promotionally. ((RFPP|t)) Creation protected
((AIV|3rr)) This noticeboard is for obvious vandals and spammers only. Consider taking this report to Administrators' noticeboard/Edit warring. ((UAA|csd)) User has created a page which has been deleted (or is tagged for deletion) per one or more speedy deletion criteria. ((RFPP|tp)) Template protected
((AIV|a)) This noticeboard is for obvious vandals and spammers only. Consider taking this report to Administrators' noticeboard/Incidents. ((UAA|rc)) User has requested a username change. ((RFPP|ec)) Extended confirmed protected
((AIV|u)) This noticeboard is for obvious vandals and spammers only. Consider taking this report to Usernames for administrator attention. ((UAA|ch)) User has changed their username. ((RFPP|do)) Done
((AIV|r)) This noticeboard is for obvious vandals and spammers only. Consider taking this report to Requests for page protection. ((UAA|p)) Problem: This account does not exist or may be hidden. ((RFPP|no)) Not done
((AIV|sp)) This noticeboard is for obvious vandals and spammers only. Consider taking this report to Sockpuppet investigations. ((UAA|s)) Stale: This account has not been used in the last 2–3 weeks. ((RFPP|d)) Declined
((AIV|in)) Note: IP addresses are generally not blocked indefinitely. Please see the blocking policy for more information. ((UAA|rn)) Not a violation of the username policy. Stage names and pen names are permitted except when they imply that the editor is a specific living person they are not. Consider filing a report at the conflict of interest noticeboard. ((RFPP|pf)) Declined – No changes to the current protection level are required at this point in time.
((AIV|s)) Appears to be a shared IP address, used by multiple users. ((UAA|no)) Not a blatant violation of the username policy. ((RFPP|nea)) Declined – Not enough recent disruptive activity to justify protection.
((AIV|4im)) User has been inappropriately warned. 4im warnings are appropriate for severe vandalism and defamation only. ((UAA|e)) Not a blatant violation of the username policy, but it's worth keeping an eye on their edits. ((RFPP|co)) Declined – Likely collateral damage as one or several users who are making improvements would be affected by the requested protection.
((AIV|c)) Content dispute. Consider dispute resolution. ((UAA|ci)) Not a blatant violation of the username policy. Consider filing a report at the conflict of interest noticeboard. ((RFPP|aiv)) DeclinedWarn the user appropriately then report them to AIV or ANI if they continue.
((AIV|ns)) User has been incorrectly or insufficiently warned. Re-report if the user resumes vandalising after being warned sufficiently. ((UAA|r)) Not a blatant violation of the username policy. Please discuss this with the user first, and consider opening a community discussion at Requests for comment/User names if they disagree with your concerns. ((RFPP|np)) DeclinedPages are not protected preemptively.
((AIV|np)) Blocks are preventative, not intended to be used as punishment. ((UAA|np)) Not a blatant violation of the username policy. For a username to be blatantly promotional, there must be a link between the username and the user's edits. Consider re-reporting if a connection becomes clear through the user's edits. ((RFPP|nhr)) Declined – This template is not used widely enough to be considered a high-risk template.
((AIV|nv)) Edits are not vandalism. Please ensure recent edits constitute vandalism before re-reporting. ((UAA|su)) Not a blatant violation of the username policy. Usernames which only imply shared use are not serious enough to warrant being blocked immediately. ((RFPP|dr)) Declined – Content dispute. Please use the article's talk page or other forms of dispute resolution.
((AIV|d)) Page deleted. ((UAA|fp)) False positive: Username is not a blatant violation of the username policy. ((RFPP|ut)) Declined – User talk pages are not protected except in response to severe or continued vandalism.
((AIV|e)) Stale report. ((UAA|c)) Comment: ((RFPP|her)) Declined – Pending changes protection should not be used on pages with a high edit rate.
((AIV|sn)) Report was good at the time, but is now stale. Re-report if this user resumes vandalising. ((RFPP|b)) User(s) blocked.
((RFPP|tb)) User(s) re-blocked with talk page editing disallowed.
