I also tought in that, but I think that we would need to contact the admin, as I didn't saw that in edit page ;(

So far, I've found 2 different IPs that erased stuff.

216.52.223.131 - The second one to do it, located in or near Los Angles, CA.

174.50.237.12 - The one who did it first. Located in or near Nashville, TN.

EDIT: Compman99 lives in Nashville. I could imagine him doing something like this too. I just wish I had his IP...
Also, I compared the other IP with the only person I know who lives near Los Angeles, but they are totally different.

Looks like someone else is also restoring the wiki.

And DB, Revisited is back in wiki, someone restored it (good news ;) )

Bad that happened this thing. Agree with RacingFreak, the creator of this Wiki has to be the only to accept or deny submitted contents for the publishing, and if possible, someone else has too. Good that the restoring has been possible, and had to be so.
Dummiesboy, none of those two IP addresses are present in this website and forum.

Since that I know Tuppence870 is an admin there, I'll have to tell him about this through YouTube. (since it looks like he's active there)

Hey guys, I just wanted to know a thing. Is MM2X a "cheating" community?

Here's an idea for the admin of that site. Ban 174.50.237.12
from making edits, he keeps doing it. Either that, or make it so that only members can edit.

Also, I just noticed the "cheating" thing. That IP is from compman, no doubt. The Nashville location confirms it.

And talking about Tuppence,

You know when the guy's getting too far? When he deletes all the content of the admin (Tuppence) page. Yeah. It went erased. Someone needs to find out who's this guy.

Anyone knows how to contact Tuppence to tell him about this?

I already know who it is. He (or rather him and his sons) have been responsible for causing issues in the MM2 community for years. As I said, his main nickname is "compman99", although he goes by so many others that you could never keep track of them all. He makes cheating mods (most famous for hyperve2), and targets people who he doesn't like. John McArthur, of Nashville TN. I could get more specific if I wanted, but I won't bother going further, lol.

Well it seems like Slendar got the message somehow. He restored the pages and put "yo compman, enjoy your future ban" and things along those lines on the summaries. At least that guy is out of the picture now, lol.

Guys banning one IP barely has an effect, what if he's on Wi-Fi with dynamic IP? Or he could just use proxy. It's easy to bypass, unless you deny editing for guests or unregistered people. Or just... make a proper wiki, like wiki.mm2x.com

And lol making notes about him on the actual wiki... very very bad idea.
