Disabling Anonymous Editing Trial for September

It has come to my attention that excluding myself, more than half of this wikia's edits are made by malicious anonymous editiors who just want to vandalise it. While some of it is from the JonTron subreddit brigading us, a lot of it is just idiots vandalising pages, especially the Jacques and Malkovich pages, as well as scripts.

So, as a trial period for the entire of September, I will be turning anonymous editing off. If people want to make any edits, they will be forced into making an account. I've been thinking about this for a while, but it seems that every weekend now, I have to clean up after vandals, and I'm sick of it. I will re-enable anonymous editing again in October, and depending on how those two months compare, I'll make a decision on whether or not to leave it off.

I'm sorry for the anonymous contributors who have contributed well, but you guys are a very small minority. If anyone wants to ask questions or share their thoughts or give other solutions on how to tackle the issue, feel free to leave it here. I want to give as much warning as possible before I switch anonymous editing off. I didn't want it to come to this, but I see no other way. Once again, I'm sorry.

I'm not one of those people, and I even told you one of the edits made by the Reddit people.

Don't worry. It's no longer in effect, and achieved what it was supposed to. The vandals left at the same time as this came in, and they never came back when it was removed. It wasn't just one IP address that was causing the issue, there were many different people vandalising, only one was confirmed to be from Reddit. This is old news now, and you've done nothing wrong. It's just that AWC's tend to gain a bad reputation sadly.
