Start at Problems with Members.
An emergency block is necessary if you see:
- a spammer or non-genealogist vandal, or
- a genealogist making serious mistakes that will be very hard to fix later (see Problems with Members for how to know).
Step One: Request a Block or Badge Removal
Step Two: File a Mentor Intervention Request
If the person is or was a legitimate member of our community (not a spammer or non-genealogist vandal) immediately after requesting or placing an emergency block or badge removal, file a Mentor Intervention Request and select option 3A.1.a.
The MIR is a necessary part of the "paper trail." It helps keep our problem escalation procedure organized, fair, and transparent.
Thank you for taking responsibility and helping.
