There is a troll named thanhnguyen21 who is making frivolous edits at a rapid rate in both Italian and Spanish articles. I reported this person several weeks and am downvoting his/her "edits," but nothing is being done apparently. Any suggestions?

If the moderators/admins won't ban him, then I think the only thing we can do is keep our eyes open and downvote then revert his changes. I'm sure after a relatively short while he'll get bored and go play something else...

I don't know what they get out of it. Do they think points are somehow useful? Do they know about some sort of exchange rate no one has mentioned to the rest of us?

I said to Aurelia yesterday that I think we should stop reverting these edits and leave them for everyone to downvote. And keep reporting it. I think there are many situations in immersion where there can be misunderstandings and different understandings about how it should be used, all exacerbated by the fact that people may be managing in a second language, but there's no misunderstanding involved in this, is there? And the downvotes will stop them from moving up tiers and being able to misuse the downvote against others.

Thanks for the comments. The only problem with not reverting is that capable translators don't get credit for their work.

I'm sure they could - after the troll comment has had its full share of feedback.

I don't think there is too much need to avoid reverting. If several of us downvote before reverting that will be enough to prevent them going up levels - remember that 95% upvotes is needed to advance, so even just 10 downvotes is enough to require a further 190 upvotes to level up. The only way these users would achieve that would be to 'sock-puppet' and vote themselves up, and if they really want to do that then there isn't much that can be done about it. As royalhalo says, it is important that those who are doing proper translations get credit for it.

He's not the only one at present, as there's also Tman94732. Nothing seems to be being done about him either.

I reported this person to abuse team as well. By now there probably enough downvotes to keep him/her at level 1, but I do not think he/she cares.
