On the 1st January, the User:Realjamesh account on Wikipedia was listed on his Verified Handles, a service made by James to list social media handles. The link to the user talk page was then shared on Discord.
Wikipedia is well known for being editable by anyone so fans saw the link and began to pour edits on the page with over 20 edits from fans appearing in minuets with some even using it as a chat room and others asking questions directed at James.
The talk page for realjamesh did display a banner saying that the page is not monitored by James or JEM Media, his company. However, after around 10 minutes of vandalism and nonsense type edits including massive blank tables filling the page, James must have noticed and taken action as the page was given Wikipedia’s semi-protection meaning new and unregistered users could no longer edit the page, preventing the vandalism.
This wasn’t even vandalism on an actual Wikipedia article, instead fans saw the opportunity or perhaps chance at contacting James despite the disclaimer and the edits poured in.
The protection is set to last a week after which the page will become freely editable again so we’ll have to wait and see if realjamesh’s clearly determined fans come back to the page and begin the spamming again in the hope of contacting him, or just using the talk page as some kind of social network.
For realjamesh, this isn’t the first time he’s had to deal with issues online, in the past James has had accounts hacked and an account deleted.
Update: A week later and as expected the moment the protection was removed vandals poured in again, although this time they were prepared with extra permissions to bypass the semi protection and as a result the talk page is now under extended-confirmed protection which has put a stop to the vandalism, for now.
