Carlstar3 has been in an edit war for years now deleting entries that are uncomplimentary to Dr. Gupta on the Sanjay Gupta (edit | talk | history | protect | delete | links | watch | logs | views) page. He has not been discussing or working with other editors working on the page. At most he posts a short charge of bias and deletes. I'm more than happy to accommodate any legitmate concerns he has about accuracy and sources of this latest entry to the page, but he doesn't discuss either. Mike Holloway 04:27, 3 January 2010 (UTC)

I had a look at what Carlstar3 is removing and he's completely right according to WP:BLP. I strongly suggest you read WP:BLP and do not attempt to re-add the content without re-writing it with a neutral point of view and proper sourcing. --NeilN talk to me 04:35, 3 January 2010 (UTC)

Pictogram voting support.svg Page protected 3 days. I see fault on both sides of this debate. There is nothing wrong with adding well-sourced criticism of Sanjay Gupta's views, provided it is not WP:UNDUE. It fails neutrality if someone says (in Wikipedia's voice) that Gupta is 'contributing to confusion' on the subject of brain death. Please use the talk page to negotiate an appropriate wording of the criticism of Sanjay Gupta, and try to form a consensus as to whether this criticism belongs in the article. Anyone who continues to revert the criticism section without first getting consensus on the Talk page may be blocked. EdJohnston (talk) 00:05, 4 January 2010 (UTC)

User:Seraphimblade reported by User:Shshshsh (Result: Warned)[edit]

Page: Preity Zinta (edit | talk | history | protect | delete | links | watch | logs | views)
User being reported: Seraphimblade (talk · contribs · deleted contribs · logs · edit filter log · block user · block log)

A few months back, the user kept edit warring on this article saying the images do not comply with policy while this was an issue which was discussed on several other featured articles of living persons and on the article's talk page as well. Now the user is back at edit warring against consensus despite several users opposing to the removal of the images. The user started doing the same on the Cillian Murphy article, also an FA. The user was warned but keeps at the same. ShahidTalk2me 17:25, 3 January 2010 (UTC)

Comment by uninvolved administrator I see four reverts by the editor on the Preity Zinta article over the course of three days: [7], [8], [9], [10]. WP:3RR stipulates "a few narrowly defined situations" in which edit-warring may be excused, which include "Clear copyright violations or content that unquestionably violates the non-free content policy". However, given that the fair use of the images had already been explicitly reviewed by knowledgable editors at the successful featured article candidacy, and that Seraphimblade was reverted by three experienced editors, it is clear that they cannot be considered clear or unquestionable violations of policy. This was a content dispute, plain and simple. I see no mitigating factors that might justify or excuse the revert-warring. I find it disappointing that an administrator would resort to such tactics, and deplorable that they would threaten to block a constructive editor with the aim of getting their way with the article.  Skomorokh  00:54, 4 January 2010 (UTC)

Seraphimblade sees his four reverts as being covered by his admin role, in enforcing the WP:NFCC policy. I've asked him to respond here to explain his thinking. I agree this is not an open-and-shut case, so it may require a discussion. Seraphimblade might solve the problem by opening a thread at one of the image noticeboards. EdJohnston (talk) 01:18, 4 January 2010 (UTC)
Thanks for your comment Ed, but looking for and removing from articles non-compliant images is not a role particular to administrators, and even if it were it would not be a get-out-of-jail-free card for revert-warring against consensus.  Skomorokh  01:41, 4 January 2010 (UTC)
Given the controversy, I'm willing to agree to perform no further reverts at this time, but I think the issue is one that needs discussed. Having had a look around, it seems this problem is more widespread than I thought, so I think a wider discussion will be more productive in any case. I hope that will resolve this here. Seraphimblade Talk to me 04:25, 4 January 2010 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Note - Given the comments above, it would appear that any disruption to Wikipedia has ceased and therefore action is un-needed at this board. Discussion should most definitely take place if the matter is unresolved. In fact it should have taken place earlier, ie before it turned into an edit war! Experienced editors really shouldn't need reminded that multiple uses of revert on an article in a short span is only excused by clear vandalism, BLP issues, etc. I hope cool heads prevail and simple discussion leads to a consensus. If not, then make use of WP:DR or the numerous noticeboards. Cheers, NJA (t/c) 10:34, 4 January 2010 (UTC)

Eclipse Internet IP user reported by Jc3s5h (talk) (Result: No vio)[edit]

IP user repeatedly changes spelling of the unit of measure meter to "metre" in articles where the former spelling has been accepted, without making corresponding changes to use the spelling throughout the article, without changing the article to UK spelling, and with no effort to discuss the matter outside of dogmatic edit summaries. This contravenes WP:UNIT. Warnings, including final warning, have been issued on the various user talk pages.

Comments:

This user shows no regard for the overall brevity of sources, refuses to listen to reason and generally behaves in a completely uncivil manner in regards to editing disputes. Ibaranoff24 (talk) 21:21, 3 January 2010 (UTC)

I apologized twice for rude behavior which I admit I was very uncivil. I was still very angry and I hope I have not offended you in anyway Ibaranoff. As for the Kid rock topic I believe it still needs to be debated because there are three I clearly mentioned on his talk page that refer to him as nu metal and another is in his infobox. RG (talk) 22:35, 3 January 2010 (UTC)

 Administrator note: From the comments above, I gather that they will work together to discuss changes rather than pointlessly continue to misuse undo. If discussion proves difficult, the parties should consider dispute resolution, or page protection if needed. Regardless, they should not resume an edit war (or the offender will be blocked).

This user is also adding original research, incorrect, and duplicate information into the Prime Time Entertainment Network article. Immediately labelled my edits as "vandalism", demanded that his edits not be touched, and came *this* close to posting personal attacks on my user talk page.

Stop x nuvola with clock.svg Blocked – for a period of Indef Theaveng has six previous blocks.

Two edit-warring IP's (Result: Warned)[edit]

Can't really use the format for this case.

Has received warnings about his behaviour, [26] [27] but to no avail. Not sure of the best approach, so I'm bringing this here to see if we can resolve this here. --brewcrewer (yada, yada) 17:52, 4 January 2010 (UTC)

You deleted information without explanation including cited references. Please also see Wikipedia:Sockpuppet investigations/Mani1. Elockid (Talk·Contribs) 20:11, 3 January 2010 (UTC)
Everyone who reverts more than 3 times, says them same things. You didn't use the article's talk page and not even mine and just reverted 3 times. The case is clear enough :))--Professional Assassin (talk) 20:20, 3 January 2010 (UTC)
PS: anyone can accuse other users of sockpuppetary. It is very easy. Ain't it?--Professional Assassin (talk) 20:21, 3 January 2010 (UTC)
One of the reverts was reverting vandalism (restoring to data according to source). I made 3 reverts within a 24 hour period otherwise. Furthermore, I explained the reversions and you along with the accused socks have failed to address anything, not even a summary. Elockid (Talk·Contribs) 20:27, 3 January 2010 (UTC)
You are not allowed to revert by supposing others' edits are vandalism. By the way, I leave the rest to the Admins.--Professional Assassin (talk) 20:35, 3 January 2010 (UTC)
Let's look at the edits again. One of the revisions summarized as restoring to data from the source. This was done by an IP edit because they kept changing sourced info without any reason and in the process deleting valid references without reasons (removal of content). The 3 other reverts cited nothing about vandalism. If an admin does see this is a violation of 3RR, I'll be happy to self revert. Elockid (Talk·Contribs) 20:41, 3 January 2010 (UTC)
  • Comment, I'm not an admin, but 3RR states a user who makes more than three revert actions (of any kind) on any one page within a 24-hour period... is in violation of the rule. Also, I think admin intervention of some kind is required here. ceranthor 21:21, 3 January 2010 (UTC)
Note that I self reverted the 4th revert and am currently seeking to talk to Mani1. Elockid (Talk·Contribs) 22:21, 3 January 2010 (UTC)
In the talk page of the article, User:Ren Sydrick has stated he actually likes the page move and there's no stated opposition right now to the revert it back to the original title. Full protection might not be best at the moment since it seems as either it is going to go through PROD or AfD. I've agreed not to revert Mani's edit and discuss the issue with Mani in the meantime, who also appears to be mediator in the case. Elockid (Talk·Contribs) 17:43, 5 January 2010 (UTC)

There is an article that indicates that the CSA is being asked to sanction the league. The other editor is respectfully disagreeing by stating that since the USSF is sanctioning the league it does not need to be sanctioned by the Canadian body. That does not change the fact that the Canadian body has been asked and must make their own decision. The Canadian teams must abide by the CSA's decision. --Walter Görlitz (talk) 20

Result -- Both warned. Both parties are over 3RR, but the IP has not continued to revert since getting a 3RR warning. The IP's edits don't appear justified by the sources provided. It is possible he has some inside knowledge and believes he is correct. Nonetheless, this pattern must not continue or blocks will follow. EdJohnston (talk) 06:49, 6 January 2010 (UTC)
I don't need to be warned since I didn't break WP:3RR. There is no warning on my page or the article's talk page addressed to me. I warned the IP. The IP has not provided any verifiable source to back claims. The article should be locked to anonymous editing. --Walter Görlitz (talk) 14:55, 6 January 2010 (UTC)
Result - Fully protected one week. Since you reported a 3RR case here, you obviously know about the 3RR policy, and you don't need a warning. I count at least four reverts by each of you. The protection can be lifted early if you find at least one other person to support you on the article Talk page or at Wikipedia:WikiProject Football. EdJohnston (talk) 16:00, 6 January 2010 (UTC)
Thanks. I did make four reverts, but not over a twenty-four hour period. I also finally modified the article to attempt to appease the other editor.

Comments:

StevenMario has been blocked twice in the last week for editwarring on cartoon related articles - he apparently has not learned his lesson - the 3rr report diffs are a mess, as both he and Coffe5binky are only reverting tiny portions of each others edits. Coffe5binky has started a series of borderline personal attacks on StevenMario in his edit summaries, and both editors are escalating this much too far over a content dispute.

Diff of edit warring / 3RR warning: [55]

Diff of attempt to resolve dispute on article talk page: Informed the user in the above warning to start a discussion on the article Talk page, but user reverted without doing so.

Comments:

This anonymous user continues to add unsourced, non-notable POV material despite being warned that it violates Wikipedia rules and after being asked to discuss the material in question on the article Talk page and seek consensus for its inclusion. User wants to use terms like "loser", "inept" and include alleged fan chants of "limpdick" that cannot be sourced in the section of an encyclopedic article that deals with the history of the subject. Focus on individual player performance and single unremarkable games is not notable for inclusion in this section which summarizes over 100 years of sports history, but the anonymous user refuses to seek consensus for the edits they wish to make and continues to revert without discussion, making minor tweaks in an attempt to skirt policy violation. I'm admittedly new to this whole process, so I hope I've filled out the form correctly and provided the needed info. If any further details are required, please let me know and I'll attempt to provide them. I don't know if this user has violated 3RR blatantly, but I think it's clear that the user is edit-warring without any attempt to discuss contentious changes or seek consensus. Any help you can provide would be appreciated. Thanks! GarnetAndBlack (talk) 23:32, 7 January 2010 (UTC)

Multiple IPs are now making unconstructive edits to this article, I'd like to ask for some sort of temporary protection in addition to a decision about the anonymous user reported here. Thanks again. GarnetAndBlack (talk) 02:14, 8 January 2010 (UTC)

This is a WP:BLP issue. -- Heptor talk 14:18, 7 January 2010 (UTC)


I disagree. I have brought a valid reference to the article this one, discussed it in the talk page, and Heptor has been removing it many times without discussion. I assume Heptor was of good faith however: I think he made the confusion with another previous non-valid reference. The reference is a conference held by activists, and the article just says he (the author, subject of the article) participated in it. No WP:BLP, and the ref is valid. So no need to edit-warring as Heptor did. TwoHorned (talk) 14:29, 7 January 2010 (UTC)

The content was disputed and removed by multiple editors, nothing gives you the right to continually repeatedly reinsert it in an edit warring way. Off2riorob (talk) 14:48, 7 January 2010 (UTC)
You mix up different things. Explain why the new ref I brought is non-valid. You are referring to older discussions. And nothing is "fixed", as his qualification as an "historian" is very poorly sourced. TwoHorned (talk) 15:07, 7 January 2010 (UTC)
And, BTW, others have removed without discussion stuff brought by Severino. I just sourced Severino's edits. And correctly. So, everything is very much about content here, not WP:BLP. TwoHorned (talk) 15:11, 7 January 2010 (UTC)
I am not mixing up anything, you have been edit warring to keep your desired content in the article, its correctness,value, the quality of the citation was disputed by multiple editors requesting you move to discussion but you just kept on stuffing it in anyway. Content disputes as I told you are decided by discussion not edit warring. Off2riorob (talk) 15:12, 7 January 2010 (UTC)
There was a lot of "previous discussion" on the talk page, both with and without my involvement. I also posted a warning on an earlier 3RR violation on TwoHorned's talk page.
TwoHorned: if you are serious about doing constructive contributions, please familiarize yourself with WP:BLP. You keep claiming that this article is not a BLP issue. Pardon me if I am wrong, but this strongly suggests that you are not familiar with this policy. Generally, when writing biographies of living persons, extra care must be taken both about sourcing and discussion of the content that is to be inserted. Also, please refrain from violating the WP:3RR in the future. -- Heptor talk 16:21, 7 January 2010 (UTC)

In any case, this is a WP:3RR violation dispute, not a content dispute. TwoHorned, do you admit that you violated the 3RR, and if so, will you promise to edit less aggressively in the futre? Thanks. -- Heptor talk 16:44, 7 January 2010 (UTC)

TwoHorned is over 3RR, but there is some useful discussion happening on the article's talk page. I suggest we wait a few hours to be sure that reverting has stopped. If TwoHorned continues to revert, he should be blocked. EdJohnston (talk) 17:52, 7 January 2010 (UTC)

Result - No action. Peace and harmony have broken out, since the contending parties have agreed on an AfD. EdJohnston (talk) 01:31, 8 January 2010 (UTC)

User:TwoHorned is edit warring again adding content that is coatracking and has nothing to do with this living person, I have given him two more warnings to no avail, the last one was, please don't add it again or I will report you, he ignored that and added it back again. this is the tagging on he is inserting.. and which features Vlaams Belang, among others entities, as a "counter jihad" organisation. the detail has nothing to do with the subject at all it is simple coatracking. Here you'll see the two warning I have given him tonight. Off2riorob (talk) 23:30, 8 January 2010 (UTC)

It's completely related to the subject as Vlaams Belang is one of the organization mentionned in the web site and conf in question in the article. The truth is that Off2riorob is discarding properly sourced information, and discusses poorly and badly in the talk page, with insults directed at me : here.

Diff of edit warring / 3RR warning: warned in edit summary when I undid his 4th revert

Comments:
Sorry, I thought the revert rule only applied to the same material being reverted, not different material. I'll be more careful in the future.--John Foxe (talk) 19:20, 7 January 2010 (UTC)

It is worth noting that this incident is not unique, and this editor in particular has a history of repeatedly rapidly reverting any changes made to the this article and those of the Latter Day Saint topic in particular, that he inclines to agree with. Although he denies claims of "owning" the article, he enjoys to make changes to his reflected opinion/style and then aggressively defend the articles from changes, whether they be minor or major. Its quite disruptive, and works to disregard and discredit the opinions of others. He's been doing this for quite a while, and his editing behaviour has indeed drew attention from professional external sources. Routerone (talk) 20:48, 7 January 2010 (UTC)

Result - Warned. John Foxe has stopped reverting, and many others have edited the article since. Open a new report if the problem continues. EdJohnston (talk) 15:47, 8 January 2010 (UTC)

User:GSP-Rush reported by User:Bubba73 (Result: Warned)[edit]

Please comment on changes to the article Samuel Sevian and its talk page by this user. It hasn't gotten to 3RR yet. Please note his uncivil comments on the article's talk page. I think the user is probably a child. Bubba73 (Who's attacking me now?), 02:41, 8 January 2010 (UTC)

First off stating that someone is child is discrimination witch i strongly doubt that wikipedia support it. Second, if you would of look at wat i did instead just the fact that did something... You would of notice that the change made were your personally recommendation. So basically i did exactly wat you ask me to do then you turn around and report me and call me a child.

It not very hard to understand who is child here. GSP-RuSh| <class="autosigned">—Preceding undated comment added 06:51, 8 January 2010 (UTC).

Result - Warned. EdJohnston (talk) 15:50, 8 January 2010 (UTC)
I stated that I believed that the user was a child so that could be taken into account and a warning would not be tooharsh. Bubba73 (Who's attacking me now?), 15:58, 8 January 2010 (UTC)

Comments:

I have reverted the reverts to the original editors revert but do not want to fall foul of 3RR The main problem is the usage of edit comments to accuse me of vandalism and ignoring edit comments i have included to try and deflame the situation I have contaced the editor that made the first revert, but no answer as yet. It seems that the user is using different ip adresses or there are more than one user Chaosdruid (talk) 13:41, 8 January 2010 (UTC)

I concur with Chaosdruid's report. These IPs are adding unsourced POV material to the article and are not discussing on Talk Page. Page should be semi-protected. (Taivo (talk) 14:00, 8 January 2010 (UTC))
