Administrator instructions

Welcome to the edit warring noticeboard

This page is for reporting active edit warriors and recent violations of restrictions like the three-revert rule.

You must notify any user you have reported.

You may use {{subst:An3-notice}} ~~~~ to do so.


Feed-icon.svg You can subscribe to a web feed of this page in either RSS or Atom format.

Additional notes
  • When reporting a user here, your own behavior will also be scrutinized. Be sure you understand WP:REVERT and the definitions below first.
  • Possible alternatives to filing here are dispute resolution, or a request for page protection.
  • Violations of other restrictions, like WP:1RR violations, may also be brought here. Your report should include two reverts that occurred within a 24-hour period, and a link to where the 1RR restriction was imposed.

Definition of edit warring
Edit warring is a behavior, typically exemplified by the use of repeated edits to "win" a content dispute. It is different than a bold, revert, discuss (BRD) cycle. Reverting vandalism and banned users is not edit warring; at the same time, content disputes, even egregious point of view edits and other good-faith changes do not constitute vandalism. Administrators often must make a judgment call to identify edit warring when cooling disputes. Administrators currently use several measures to determine if a user is edit warring.
Definition of the three-revert rule (3RR)
An editor must not perform more than three reverts on a single page within a 24-hour period. Undoing another editor's work—whether in whole or in part, whether involving the same or different material each time—counts as a revert. Violations of this rule normally attract blocks of at least 24 hours. Any appearance of gaming the system by reverting a fourth time just outside the 24-hour slot is likely to be treated as a 3RR violation. See here for exemptions.

Sections older than 48 hours are archived by Lowercase sigmabot III.

Comments:

Repeated blanking of sections (assuming good faith firstly, then it appeared vandalism but seems to be more not liking being reverted), doesn't seek consensus, refuse discussion, personnal attacks, doubtful justification of edits (I quote : "dumb, useless, pointless, awful, poor"), breach of policies and edit warring. Used the same behavior with User:Darkwarriorblake. Warned multiple times and blanked the warning without issue resolution. Trying at this very moment to intimidate me on my talk page by criticising my comprehension level and my level of English, as well as my past contributions.

I'm aware I'm may be borderline myself but I consider the behavior of the IP to be absolutely disgusting as it makes personnal attacks and refuses to collaborate with other members of wiki. Regards. CocoricoPolynesien (talk) 15:35, 20 October 2019 (UTC)

    • I was sent there by WP:AIV because of edit warring... And what do I do about the personnal attacks ?
The IP user made 4 reverts alone on the 14th at The Thing, and has continued to utilise a brute force approach to editing since. No-one has been hostile towards teh IP that I can see yet they have been openly hostile and/or stubborn regarding their edits. Darkwarriorblake / SEXY ACTION TALK PAGE! 17:42, 20 October 2019 (UTC)

Violation of WP:BLANKING, inexcusable for an editor has edited for 6+ years. CaradhrasAiguo (leave language) 00:41, 23 October 2019 (UTC)

  • That appears to only be two reverts, the third dif given does not appear to be a reversion. In addition CaradhrasAiguo has a history of using unfounded Administrators’ noticeboard requests to harass people he is in dispute with, I know because it happened to me and I’ve seen it happen to many since. Horse Eye Jack (talk) 01:23, 23 October 2019 (UTC)
Thanks for the support Horse Eye Jack! In any case, I don't think this is the relevant noticeboard to report me as of now if my behaviour is deemed to be disruptive, and I am pretty confident that the administrators can distinguish two from three. I was honestly tempted to revert again so that my reporter would break the 3RR rule (on 3 already), but that's too petty and doesn't contribute to making Wikipedia more civil. Yny501 (talk) 01:28, 23 October 2019 (UTC)
@Yny501:: Please understand that @CaradhrasAiguo: is expressly permitted, as a matter of policy to remove any comments whatsoever from their own user talk page. It is quite inappropriate for you to edit war to force your own comments to remain on their user page when they are expressly permitted to remove them if they please. See WP:BLANKING. I'm also frankly not sure what you meant when you referred to another user as very 'aiguo' so to speak. ST47 (talk) 01:34, 23 October 2019 (UTC)
While I understand that policy allows for it, the policy also clearly states that it is preferable to at the very least explain. This user has a long history of cleaning up their talk page (the archives look very different for the record), which is completely fine, but I think that my edits warrant at least a reply, if not an explanation. I have no further desire to edit the talk page if they do not desire it, but I do not think this report helps matters at all. Yny501 (talk) 01:37, 23 October 2019 (UTC)
You may want a response, but they are not required to provide one. The records of their talk page notices remain in their page history, and the fact that they have deleted them is considered equivalent to "acknowledging" them, should you need to rely on them for any future report about their conduct. The fact that you were honestly tempted to game WP:3RR in order to get CaradhrasAiguo blocked for edits that you knew that WP:BLANKING allows them to make is problematic, and had I seen these reverts "live" rather than an hour after the fact, it is you that I would have blocked. Given that you have agreed not to continue to reinstate your comments on their talk page against their wishes, I'm closing this with no action. ST47 (talk) 01:44, 23 October 2019 (UTC)
