Don't care, it's the QD template. Griffinofwales (talk) 19:49, 10 July 2010 (UTC)

What do you mean? Please start signing your name also. Griffinofwales (talk) 19:59, 10 July 2010 (UTC)

I used {{non}} but you said you don't care. Do I have to do the actual reverting??? Polymathsj (talk) 20:06, 10 July 2010 (UTC)

Non = QD. You need around 100 reverts before I can re-consider. Griffinofwales (talk) 20:08, 10 July 2010 (UTC)

Comment: Basically marking articles for speedy deletion (quick deletion) do not count as revert for fighting vandalism. You need to actually revert the vandalism (with an edit summary), and then warn the user on their talk page. PopMusicBuff talk to me 20:16, 10 July 2010 (UTC)

Reverting vandalism means getting rid of it. Here is an example. You can do this by using the [undo] button, or by simply fixing it using the regular change box. Because you are new, it will take a few days of practice before you will know how to use Wikipedia correctly. Please be patient about getting special tools. The reason we don't give it out to everyone is because it is easy to break things with it. For that reason, we would like you to practice editing first and then come back and ask for it. Thanks!

I am in the process of creating/editing/improving several Madonna related articles, as Simple is lax in this category. However, based on the English-Wiki patterns related to these articles, they are extremely prone to vandalism, IP-vandalism, and unsourced info added. PopMusicBuff talk to me 18:24, 10 July 2010 (UTC)
File:X mark.svg Not done Not so here, the vandals like Bieber, not Madonna. I see no vandalism reversion in your contribs, so no evidence of need. If you do come across a lot of it, we can re-consider. Griffinofwales (talk) 18:26, 10 July 2010 (UTC)
