This is against basic Wikimedia projects principles and won't be executed.
Wrong edits will need to be handled as usual, you may want to seek help to learn counter-vandalism and cleanup tricks if needed.

I would suggest that you seek at advice at [[oldwikisource:WS:Scriptorium]] about some of the methodologies for improving contributors input.
