A couple things that are NOT vandalism.
- New users who don't know what they're doing.
- Incomplete pages that are poorly-written because the editor is placing the information in chunks, and not all in the same paragraph.
- Disrupting articles on purpose.
- Completely translating a page into another language (for example, Portuguese, Chinese, Spanish, etc.)
- Adding nonexistent, redundant, and/or pointless categories to pages.
- Image Spamming.
- Inserting nonsense/gibberish into pages.
- Adding personal opinions. Saying "I think Burpy is the best" instead of "Burpy is thought to be the best Slug", even though the latter should not be added to articles either.
How to Block Vandals
If you are unsure if it's vandalism, ask the user to stop whatever activity is disrupting the article.. If that user continues to do it, block him/her for (3 days, 1 week, 2 weeks, etc.)
If it's clearly vandalism, block for amounted time shown.
