Regular users should immediately report vandalism to an administrator via instant messaging. Do not use User Talk pages - these will not alert the user until they visit As the Bell Rings Wiki.
In the meantime, regular users should manually revert any vandalism.
Administrators should ban large-scale vandals on sight. To revert changes, go to the user's list of contributions and click the rollback links. When reverting changes, please remember to add
