You're very welcome :) I think this is a situation that might be best addressed by disabling anonymous IP edits on the wiki, at least for the time being. The vandalism bot is far and away the most prolific anonymous editor of the past few months. Maybe the operator of the bot will get bored and go do something else if anonymous edits are disabled.
I make Let's Play videos of FOSS games. You can find them on DTube and VidLii. I have also made a few small Free Software games, available on my GitHub page.
