Is there a way to lock my own user page from being edited by any other users, with exception of an admin?

This individual has been beligerent towards myself and other users, as well as the admin. This user I believe has been banned before - under a different name. You can see in the history of my user page that this afternoon they were abusive towards me, after I had politely requested them to not edit my user page, and use the talk page and leave a message if they had a disagreement with me. They reverted my edit and put back their comment. I have left it as is - so that someone may see what I am talking about.

They have also added this as their summary for the edit

"I'd take you more seriously if you weren't such a mega bitch and also if you would get your facts straight before taunting a person. Also, you made the insult in your USER PAGE and NOT the talk page."

The facts were that he did edit my user page, and I was not taunting him by directing him to use the talk page.

What is my recourse here? how do I fix this? Aside from opening a new account under a new name? Fräulein 22:24, October 20, 2010 (UTC)

Problem fixed. Vĕģą-Ďāґķ 22:53, October 20, 2010 (UTC)

Thank you for reverting the edit. Is there a way to lock the page ? He will just put back his edit the next time he logs on. And he will continue to be abusive. What is the remedy for this? Fräulein 22:59, October 20, 2010 (UTC)

Try to contact your local admins to protect your page They are able to do that. Vĕģą-Ďāґķ 23:00, October 20, 2010 (UTC)

Is there a way to contact the Admin without the abusive user seeing that I have done so? Past experience with this user has shown me that anytime I have contacted the Admin, for little things like suggestions to the improve the wikia, have always resulted in this type of response or beligerant postings, which are then shortly removed thereafter, buy the user.Fräulein 23:52, October 20, 2010 (UTC)

If the admin has confirmed an email, then you can use Special:EmailUser to contact him. Vĕģą-Ďāґķ 23:56, October 20, 2010 (UTC)

Where would I find this "confirmed email"? is it on their user page somewhere? This is the admin for that wikia Fräulein 00:09, October 21, 2010 (UTC)

How do I use Special:EmailUser/UserName ?? There is no help page for that. Fräulein 00:18, October 21, 2010 (UTC)

In that way, "Special:EmailUser/Username" and it will show you a form similar to Special:Contact Vĕģą-Ďāґķ 00:22, October 21, 2010 (UTC)

Where "in that way"? I do not understand. Where do I type in Special:EmailUser/Username? Could you provide a link to that page or a link to the page that explains how to do that?Is it under Special Pages? Is it in the Help pages? Is it under Contact Wikia Staff? I am sorry but I do not understand.Fräulein 00:27, October 21, 2010 (UTC)

There is no a guide to this. For example, Special:EmailUser/VegaDark Vĕģą-Ďāґķ 00:30, October 21, 2010 (UTC)

Now I am even more confused - Where would I put that "special email user" thing? Would I have to open a page to do that? Do I do that from somewhere in wikia-land? Or do I do that from my own email?Fräulein 00:45, October 21, 2010 (UTC)
These three admins can receive emails from other users. Vĕģą-Ďāґķ 00:50, October 21, 2010 (UTC)

I have tried those links - but it gives me "You must be logged in and have a valid e-mail address in your preferences to send e-mail to other users. " ' I am logged in and I have set my preferences to the email other users option. ??Fräulein 02:02, October 21, 2010 (UTC) And now I am having issues with the confirmation of the email address. :/ I have sent several confrimations to my email address and nothing has appeared in any box, not even the spam folder. I had the account marked for "accept email" prior to this whole issue of the abusive user. Fräulein 02:09, October 21, 2010 (UTC)
