Did I vandalize Wikipedia?!

At work today, I looked something up on Wikipedia. I was surprised to see a note that said “You have a new message.” When I clicked the link provided, I saw:

User talk:204.69.40.101

Hi, the recent edit you made to Area code 646 has been reverted, as it appears to be unconstructive. Use the sandbox for testing; if you believe the edit was constructive, ensure that you provide an informative edit summary. You may also wish to read the introduction to editing. Thanks. — lucasbfr talk 22:52, 14 February 2008 (UTC)

The recent edit you made to Karlstad, Minnesota constitutes vandalism, and has been reverted. Please do not continue to vandalize pages; use the sandbox for testing. Thank you. Alansohn (talk) 17:11, 29 January 2009 (UTC)

  1. And? Did you inquire further??

  2. No, I figured I’d leave well-enough alone.

  3. Hello. If you have a dynamic IP address at work then it’s likely that whoever had that address before you vandalised a page and that the warning was intended for them.

  4. Either that or it was someone in your workplace…
