Hey, awhile ago we had a very, very bad user on our wiki, and he was blocked. But he keeps finding ways around the IP blocking, so I was wondering if there was any other way to prevent him from creating accounts again. Drewlzoo(talk)

The autoblock only lasts 3 days, I've looked into the user and blocked his IP -- RandomTime 17:33, December 12, 2011 (UTC)
And remember be thoughtful.

There's really not much you can do about it. Special:Block should nuke 'em, but if he just creates new accounts over and over again... don't block anons for too long though, since another anon might have the same IP address and be affected as well.Catuse16703:03, January 1, 2012 (UTC)
