igloo is a browser-based, JavaScript tool for handling vandalism on Wikipedia. It doesn't just add links to the interface; instead, it implements a full in-browser GUI for watching recent changes, finding and reverting vandalism, warning users and reporting or blocking them. You can find details about igloo changes and development here.

igloo is in an alpha test. You are responsible for any actions your account performs with it, even if the action reveals a bug or is otherwise unexpected.





igloo has the following operating requirements:



igloo is designed for, and compatible with, the monobook and vector skins — other skins are not guaranteed to work and your success may vary.

  • Add importScript('Wikipedia:Igloo/gloo.js'); // [[Wikipedia:Igloo]] to your skin.js page
  • Clear your browser cache. Bypassing the cache is occasionally ineffective, and may result in the igloo modules failing to communicate.
  • Be sure to add exceptions to any script blocking add-ons such as NoScript.
  • Reload this page, and click 'launch igloo'.
