Ignores talk page messages and continues to remove content backed by reliable sources such as Billboard and the NY Daily News. Has violated WP:3rr after being warned and continues to edit war after being reverted by two different users. STATic message me! 04:01, 25 January 2014 (UTC)

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Note Just to note that the user has already raised the issue with the Admin's BPL noticeboard: Wikipedia:Biographies_of_living_persons/Noticeboard#Jimmy_Henchman, and there are ongoing discussions as to whether the material is a BLP breach at Talk:Jimmy_Henchman#WP:BLP_issues.
    The user (RedPen) who has removed material, and then reverted when it has been re-included without discussion, has done so under WP:BPL which states questionable material "should be removed immediately and without waiting for discussion"; although he has also started the discussions both on the talk page and BPL noticeboard
    As, of course, removal of BPL issues are exempted from the three revert rule (see: WP:NOT3RR), it would probably be better for you to discuss with the user and the administrators at the BLP notice board or talk page. --Rushton2010 (talk) 04:11, 25 January 2014 (UTC)
The problem is the content was backed by reliable sources. Continuously removing sourced content without valid reasons after being reverted is NOT okay. Also as stated, the discussion is ongoing and in the middle of the discussion this edit war occurred. There was no consensus that the huge amount of content removed was BLP violations, so the user cannot claim that exception of the 3rr rule. Also the BLPN discussion was opened after the edit warring occurred. The user was warned about 3rr, yet the continued to revert without discussing until after this report was made, obviously fearful of block since they violated the policies we have in place. STATic message me! 04:54, 25 January 2014 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting x.svg No violation BLP removals are exempt from the 3RR. You need to resolve the discussion on the talkpage before you reinsert this material. Spartaz Humbug! 05:44, 25 January 2014 (UTC)
  • I saw this report late last night at a time when I usually don't take actions on Wikipedia, but I was disturbed by STATicVapor's behavior and misunderstanding of policy, so I want to now add some comments. First, BLP violations can be committed even when material is supported by reliable sources, but, here, the key issue was the reliability of the sources. Second, there doesn't have to be a consensus to remove a BLP violation for an editor to claim an exemption under 3RR. Third, WP:BLPREMOVE generally trumps other policies until there a strong consensus that the disputed material should be included in some form. Fourth, STATic's claim that TRPoD stopped reverting because of the filing of this report makes no sense. The last version of the article was effectively TRPoD's. He had no reason to revert again. Finally, STATic's conduct on the article talk page was not constructive. They repeatedly accused TRPoD of vandalism (STATic used some form of the word "vandal" six times in the discussion), which is obviously incorrect and undermines any productive arguments they may otherwise have.--Bbb23 (talk) 14:42, 25 January 2014 (UTC)
Thank you Bbb23; we certainly seem to be on the same page. The policy is very clear that potential BPL violations should be immediately removed, and not re-added before there is consensus that the information is not a breach of policy; a quick glance at the article's talk page shows that there is not consensus yet (I agree with Bbb23, that Static seems to be assuming bad-faith, and their comments have not been conducive to discussion and achieving consensus - rather just accusations of vandalism). Although Static may disagree with Red that it is a BPL violation, I believe Red has been acting in good faith, and his actions have been inline with the relevant policies. I'll keep an eye on the talkpage discussions and try and keep things civil and productive. --Rushton2010 (talk) 15:17, 25 January 2014 (UTC)
@Bbb23: I agree my behavior was not the best. However, in what world are LA Weekly, Billboard, NY Times, MTV, Village Voice and Baltimore Sun not reliable sources? I agree some of the content should have been removed, but the literal mass removal without due dillagence, and then the edit warring on top of that was not appropriate. STATic message me! 19:56, 25 January 2014 (UTC)

User:Franek K. reported by User:Sobiepan (Result: 72 hours)[edit]

Few days ago he broke the 3rr on Lechitic languages (and West Slavic languages)

Lechitic languages

West Slavic languages

He has been warned but not blocked.

Shortly later, he changed and reverted several times my comments on a talk page, which was highly provocative and against the rules of Wikipedia:Talk_page_guidelines#Editing_comments and Wikipedia:Civility. 1. [10], [11] I have asked him to stop [12], [13], [14] with no result, he changed it again: [15]

Today he followed me to Slavic languages and reverted twice [16] , [17] (ignoring the ongoing discussion on Talk:Silesian language).

--Sobiepan (talk) 16:37, 25 January 2014 (UTC)

  1. result of edit-war from 21 January is warned for both: I and Sobiepan. Both leads edit-war, not only I.
administrator Kevin Gorman took care of us (a'la curator), former administrator Piotrus also help
  1. later - 22 January, user Sobiepan enter to discuss large pictures. First I and user JorisvS [18], reduced the size of the graphic uploaded by Sobiepan. "Editing comments" is one but Sobiepan have no right to destroy the layout of page, too large graphics and separating lines are unacceptable. Size of Sobiepan's graphics have been reduced (graphics are not removed), separating lines can not exist because it is written posts directly to that text. We both (I and JorisvS) thoroughly explained what was going on. Sobiepan reverted all edits, can not be subordinate, makes it difficult to discuss. Administrator Kevin also removed them and warned Sobiepan [19].
  2. Today reverted new change by Sobiepan, Sobiepan doing controversial changes with Silesian despite waged discussion (ignoring the ongoing discussion on Talk:Silesian language, discussion is still in progress) and introduces errors to article (Ref label|Silesian|a to Old Polish?, this ref is about Silesian). Generally, user Sobiepan still makes controversial changes, other users also reverted him but it does not help. User Sobiepan create new edit-wars, for example: [20]. His behavior is outrageous. User Sobiepan do not want to improve behavior, still working aggressively, difficult to work with other users. Please help. Franek K. (talk) 17:12, 25 January 2014 (UTC)

Franek K. already started edit wars and pushed POV in the past [21]--Sobiepan (talk) 17:50, 25 January 2014 (UTC)

...I knew you'd give some old links from months. This is pathetic, man. In this way behave users in a losing position. I can thoroughly analyze your edits, surely there will be other your edit-wars but I do not want trolling as you and I want to constructively discuss and edit Wikipedia, not as you. Sorry, I do not want to go down to such a low level of behavior. Franek K. (talk) 18:12, 25 January 2014 (UTC)
    • Stop x nuvola with clock.svg Stop x nuvola with clock.svg Both editors blocked – for a period of 72 hours Given the behavior of both Sobiepan and Franek, I've blocked both for 72 hours and strongly suggested they stay away from language related articles for a while.

Diff of attempt to resolve dispute on article talk page: [27]

Comments: I think this editor is Wikihounding me. I am not an experienced enough WP editor to know how to show that, but most recently she followed me to the Robert Spitzer (political scientist) BLP and caused me (and the subject) a great deal of grief. See Robert Spitzer (political scientist) on WP:BLP/N, and SPA on Admin Newyorkbrad's talk page. She has been trying to get me banned or blocked for months, and it nearly "boomeranged" on her in November. I just want to be able to edit in good faith.

I've never submitted one of these before; sorry if I didn't fill out the form properly. --Lightbreather (talk) 02:10, 24 January 2014 (UTC)

Note: I thought 3rr was between the parties involved and admin, but since I see another editor has commented I have asked my mentor for help. Also, Sue was never my mentor. I did seek her help once, but that is explained in my comments in the "She has been trying to get me banned or blocked" discussion linked-to above. Especially my posts there from Nov 13-16 (2013).

Absolute nonsense. I have a 1RR rule that I have held to for seven years. If you take a look at the diffs supplied by the complaintant, you will see that they are just regular edits. One is a revert, and that is all I will do for 48 hours. This is a classic SPA account (editing Gun Control articles exclusively) that has narrowly escaped a topic ban on several occassions, for example it was heavily involved with the edit war that resulted in Saltyboatr's block:
Soon after that, this account attempted to get several long standing editors topic banned here:
This last one is a "Must Read" to get an understanding of this account's activities. The result boomeranged on her, and narrowly resulted in a topic ban for the second time: "There is no consensus for a topic ban. There is, however, clear concern among editors about Lightbreather's contributions, and many who oppose a topic ban do state that Lightbreather's edits are disruptive. Word to the wise: that no topic ban is agreed on does not, of course, mean that individual administrators cannot cite this discussion as a warning of sorts if they feel a block on Lightbreather for disruption is warranted. Drmies (talk) 17:35, 8 October 2013 (UTC)"
Politically, I am on the same side as this SPA (I am Pro Gun Control), but these activities are so disruptive, and along with the ownership issues, I continually find myself siding with the pro-gun editors due to this WP:CRUSH behavior.
There is no edit war going on, the complaintant's own diffs show that. I have simply made some edits however that the complaintant doesn't happen to like, and now we are all wasting our time because of it. --Sue Rangell 05:11, 24 January 2014 (UTC)
This is completely absurd. Lightbreather has been the disruptive editor pushing an agenda and waving a POV flag from Day One. She pretends not to understand what is going on and rehashes the same tired points again and again, hoping that other editors will throw up their hands and give up. I believe Sue Rangell was originally mentoring her or trying to help her, before Sue saw her for the basket case that she is.--Mike - Μολὼν λαβέ 07:37, 24 January 2014 (UTC)
I am getting ready to leave my desk for a few hours, but I would like to say, re: Sue's saying she has a 1RR rule that she had held to for seven years. 1. She also says right on her user page that she "click[s] the revert button a lot" (emphasis mine) 2. Recently (17 JAN 2014) another editor warned her about 3RR. To which she replied: "I'm not going to argue about it. I have a 1RR rule, so if you think I've slipped-up and done three reverts in 24 hours feel free to report it, I'll deserve it." And she called it "nonsense," just as she's done here. After she reported me as an "SPA" on the talk page of the admin overseeing that page, he told her "the article looks to me to be in pretty decent shape" (same link as SPA link I cited in my notice).
I will be happy to drop this if she'll just promise to stop following me around from article to article, "fixing" my edits. Lightbreather (talk) 14:32, 24 January 2014 (UTC)
Canvassing other editors isn't going to help, especially because this noticeboard isn't a "weight of opinions" thing. Your comment here does nothing to show that there is any edit-warring taking place, which is the entire point of this noticeboard. I think now's a good time to drop the stick. A series of consecutive edits that revert material counts as a single revert as far as what defines "edit warring". - Aoidh (talk) 14:41, 24 January 2014 (UTC)
Thanks for the feedback. Are you the admin who is reviewing this? I've never done one before. I read the related pages a few times and proceeded as best I could. I thought it would be me, Sue, and an admin. I only "canvassed" as you say because I saw a comment by another editor. Also, I guessed we're supposed to comment freely, as Sue and Mike have done. I have to leave my desk now, but I will check in later. Thanks. Lightbreather (talk) 14:51, 24 January 2014 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting x.svg No violation. I see one revert at 01:20 and a series of edits, including one explicit revert, from 20:01-20:25. Consecutive edits only count as one, so I get two reverts. I don't see a 3RR, and the "1RR" seems to be self-imposed. Kuru (talk) 15:49, 24 January 2014 (UTC)

Excuse me but there edits were destructive and have made it exponentially harder to use that page I've tried to reason with them no if you saw the talk page you could tell that the only reason given for splitting that page was "it would be nice" while i gave many reasons for keeping it intact most of which ware practical or involved ease of use now that page is a bigger mess than it ever was but they refuse to listen Irishfrisian (talk) 03:54, 26 January 2014 (UTC)

Three problems: 1) your definition of "reasoning with (the other editors)" revolve around edit warring and accusing them of vandalism, 2) you haven't given any reason for retaining your favorite version of the page beyond vague accusations of poor navigation and how terrible terrible it makes you feel, and 3) you keep mis-defining the term "destructive edits" as being edits that you personally disagree with and find offensive to your very soul. And it's extremely difficult to understand what you're trying to say when the only forms of communications you ever bother to do are edit-warring and personal attacks.--Mr Fink (talk) 05:30, 26 January 2014 (UTC)
and you know thats not true and also your refusal to even consider anothers point of view and simply disgard it and your constntly belittling of me and my concerns makes you a rather frustrating and how were my acusations vague in any way if you look at the importance raitings of the daughter articles is lower than the original and also it takes two to edit war Irishfrisian (talk) 15:01, 26 January 2014 (UTC)
Don't falsely accuse us of what you're doing, Irishfrisian. You're the one who belittles and attacks people by falsely accusing them of making "destructive edits" and threatening to have them blocked, you're the one who ignores everyone else's viewpoints by edit-warring and refusing to acknowledge other people's concerns beyond claiming you know what's best for the page.--Mr Fink (talk) 15:51, 26 January 2014 (UTC)
Seriously, Irishfrisian, do you honestly think that, if I "knew (my) accusations" toward you weren't true, do you honestly think I would be this sadomasochistically inclined to waste everyone's time by filing a report on the edit war noticeboard out of spite? No. I filed this report here in the vain hopes that we can get you to come to your senses and stop edit warring and get you to help collaborate in improving the page.--Mr Fink (talk) 15:56, 26 January 2014 (UTC)

Are you sure you're doing the right thing here, Mr/Mrs IP? It's you who are violating the naming conventions requirements on the English Wikipedia, and you who are edit-warring to keep those improper edits on the page? WP:BOOMERANGS are not confortable ES&L 15:40, 26 January 2014 (UTC)
I agree I have made some mistakes as I am new here but this user should be familiar with the Wikipedia's policy that clearly forbids making more than 3 reverts in such a case. (talk) 15:47, 26 January 2014 (UTC)
Once you were personally told to stop, why didn't you stop? Are you aware that this is the English Wikipedia? Did you take 30 seconds to review previous discussions about the topic before making your change even the first time? Are you aware that being "new" does not absolve you from being blocked? ES&L 15:51, 26 January 2014 (UTC)
As I said I made a mistake and I should take all responsibility for that, no matter how 'new' I am. However, you are not fair criticizing only me while this report is not against me, but other user. Can you please stick to the headline? Just because I am anon you assumed I have to be wrong and Pichpich's (whose username is offensive to me but I don't care since I don't know what policy on usernames the Wikipedia has) mistakes are not important to you. (talk) 15:57, 26 January 2014 (UTC)
You seem to miss the point: any time you file a report against another user, YOUR behavior will also be investigated. That's not optional - you are 100% to blame for this issue, and it appears that you've been aware that you should not make those changes for some time now - so it's a good time to drop the WP:STICK and back away with the repeat notice that any similar behavior will lead to an immediate block, no questions asked DP 16:19, 26 January 2014 (UTC)

This edit was reverted because it goes against a long standing consensus on the title of the page. These edits are clearly disruptive and the anon user refuses to engage in discussion on the talk page. Pichpich (talk) 15:39, 26 January 2014 (UTC)

Then you ask for page protection or follow other WP:DR - it does not give you the authority to edit-war either ES&L 15:41, 26 January 2014 (UTC)
True. Blatant disruption is not outright vandalism and I should have followed a different path to resolving the issue. Pichpich (talk) 16:03, 26 January 2014 (UTC)

The "discussion" got far out of hand, resulting in a SPI by Devanampriya against me, Joshua Jonathan:

Joshua Jonathan -Let's talk! 18:53, 26 January 2014 (UTC)


This is nothing but a bad faith report and forum shopping effort based on vindictiveness.As the reporting editor joshua jonathan himself concedes, I already filed an ongoing SP/I against JJ due to evidence of his sockpuppeting. The SP/I can be found here. Via what seems to be a sockpuppet (HY), he already opened an ANI on me here (HY was rebuked by the admin for it).

There was a DRN that I filed in order to reach a civilized resolution here. Due to the apparent sock/meat-puppetry by Joshua, I filed an SP/I and followed the protocol. Because the sockpuppetry evidence is rather damning against Joshua Jonathan, he is filing this last ditch attempt (now) to avoid being banned or block for his abuse of wikipedia protocol and standards. I haven't made an edit on dharmachakra in days and have been focused on the SPI.

The irony is, Joshua Jonathan himself edit warred (as my edit summary comments here shows and diffs below) and already violated 3RR here--making his claim here laughable (pot calling kettle) and this entire report a waste of admin time. Regards, Devanampriya (talk) 19:19, 26 January 2014 (UTC)

That means that any reverts that occurred after January 22 at 16:03 count. I believe there are five of those, making the total six. I didn't even look at Devanampriya's list above.

Diff of attempt to resolve dispute on article talk page: [71]

Comments:The issue itself of Doop being a full member of the X-Men is still rather foggy, as in the comics themselves, it has never been fully stated in the text of the comic stories themselves that he's a full member, but rather left open to interpretation of the reader to assume that he's taken the membership, including the issue that the reported user is using as his source, or that he could just be working at the school, and only hinted at in solicitations and previews. I've been told in the past by other admins and users on this site that we cannot use such things as justification in edits. I've told this user such during the course of this whole thing in his talk and in edit summaries, but he has still reverted my edits right back, saying he has valid info and I'm am the one in the wrong.

The other issue here is the user has been rather uncivil and not assumed good faith in regards to my edits, rather choosing to accuse me of only using my opinion in regards to my edits, not reading the issues at all, and making things up to justify my edits, which you can see in the various edit summaries and in my talk page, the latter of which you can view here. I have also asked him to take this dispute to the talk pages, but he demanded that I do it instead, which I did, and he has yet to comment on it as of the time I am writing this report. I have tried to keep my tone civil over the course of this, not putting my opinion in any of my edit summaries and such when I first reverted the edits. I did get a little heated in his talk when asking him to keep things civil, and am close to breaking the 3RR rule myself, so I am coming here to get this resolved as talking does not seem to be working. (talk) 05:08, 26 January 2014 (UTC)

  • Pictogram voting oppose.svg Declined. Your list of diffs is misleading. You included diffs of an IP - are you accusing the named account and the IP of being the same person? Also, you listed consecutive edits separately, even though consecutive edits count only as one revert. Finally, you failed to notify the user; I've done that. I suggest you use dispute resolution if you can't resolve the issue on the article talk page.--Bbb23 (talk) 15:08, 26 January 2014 (UTC)
    • The user admitted as much that he was the IP address in his attacks on me when he said that I should not have undid "his" edits when I first undid those IP's edits. Is there not a way for admins to check and see if the IP address matches that of the user as well? Forgive me, but I am also confused in where I listed consecutive edits? I went through all the difs I listed, and they are all some form of him adding the Doop character onto the list after someone else's edit and not his own. Is it the edits from when he first added him that you are considering to be the consecutive edits? I'm just wondering so that I don't make this same mistake again in the future if need be. Thank you for your time, I'll try the dispute resolution this time. I hope I won't have to come back here again for this. (talk) 17:21, 26 January 2014 (UTC)
      • Can you please provide a diff where the user admitted they and the IP were the same person? There are two articles, and perhaps I'm missing what you're referring to.

        • Sorry, I should have specified, he admitted to it in my talk page actually, not on the actual articles. Going through the edit histories, you can see that I first undid the edits of the IP at 2:10 ([72]), and the user undid those edits at 3:30 ([73]), and then proceeded to send me the comment at 3:32 that I should not have undid the edit due to an issue listed "as I indicated in my edit".[74] Thank you. (talk) 17:58, 26 January 2014 (UTC)
          • You pieced that together very well, thanks. I've left a request on the named user's talk page and asked them to respond.--Bbb23 (talk) 18:32, 26 January 2014 (UTC)

Wolverine and the X-Men #1 & 17 both clearly state that Doop has joined the X-Men. I noted that in my edits, but this other just went ahead and undid them without saying any reason as to why, and then accused me of removing other info I never removed. If he or she feels the issue is "foggy" that's fine, he is entitled to his opinion, and I can see that he puts a lot of work into those pages and perhaps feels like he is their moderator but, he is not. To undo my edits when I listed where the info is from because of his personal interpretations is wrong. If you would like scans that prove my edits are valid, I would happy to provide them.

I also rarely make edits and did not know that wikipedia logs you out after so many days.Cebr1979 (talk) 23:51, 26 January 2014 (UTC)

I would also like to point out that this other user's undoing of my valid edits without explanation and then making false accusations about me removing other info which I did not do would have been the beginning of the war (not notifying me beforehand being something you specifically mentioned to him above). There seems to be some "ownership" of the pages going on on his or her part, and that's not fair to other users (like myself) when wikipedia is a collaborative project. As I said, if you would like scans, I can provide them.Cebr1979 (talk) 23:56, 26 January 2014 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by Cebr1979 (talkcontribs) 23:55, 26 January 2014 (UTC)

  • As my defense to the points raised, I'm going to start off pointing out that in my very first revert of anything you did, I quite clearly stated in my edit summary why we've kept Doop in the Allies section instead of being a full member.[75] On the various re-undoings of the edits I asked you to please take it to a talk page before continuing the edit war [76][77], which you then refused to do and demanded that I take it there instead, [78], which I did, [79], and you have yet to comment on it while at least one other person has come in to agree with me. As for me accusing of removal of info, this is likely in reference to the Doop page itself. When I looked at that page's edit history, I noticed another user in the past had removed the entire power section without explanation[80], so in the process of removing the X-Men listing by Cebr, I also restored that section and noted as such in my edit summary, never claiming that cebr had removed it himself.[81] When the user came back and continually reverted that edit, he was removing the powers section once again, [82][83], while accusing me of making it up,[84][85][86]. And as far as the "ownership" accusation, up above I did say "we kept Doop there" because there are others than just myself who have talked about this and similar issues in the past. Also as stated before, I have started a talk section on this issue, and already had one agreement with me, and I have asked another member here who has probably been just as active as I have with keeping these pages up to date.[87] I have never claimed ownership of these pages, I just don't go to alot of them outside of X-Men related articles because there is just too much out there, so I've wanted to make this niche as good as I can because I am a fan. I have discussed many more issues on the talk page as well which can be seen throughout it's history and archives. If I was taking ownership, I wouldn't even bother with it. I have lost as many issues as I have probably won. But the fact at the end of the day with this one is, there was never a definitive yes from Doop, and it was left open to interpretation to the reader, which I have been told by many an admin and longtime user that we don't base edits on those kinds of things. This is not my opinion, this is what I've been told by those who run things around here. (talk) 00:51, 27 January 2014 (UTC)

That was too long. You did say that I removed the info from the Doop page. You said it more than once, you even said that I was continuously removing it and when I told you it was still there and I was looking it at right then and there, you even insinuated that I was wrong and looking at the wrong thing. You now claiming you noticed another user had done it previously and you were merely fixing that user's mistake is, quite literally, a lie. This is the first time you have ever mentioned any other user. As I said, I can provide scans of Doop joining the team... Can you provide scans of him declining?

Lastly, who are these "other admins" that have told you what classifies as valid documents? How come they were never mentioned before? How come your policies of previews not being allowed aren't mentioned anywhere in wikipedia's guidelines? Are you positive you were told this by admins or are you simply looking for justification now because, again, this is the first time you've mentioned this information. Information, I might add, that can't be verified.

In regards to "good faith" and whathaveyou, was claiming I deleted info I did not delete (more than once) and then backtracking a day later and claiming you were fixing someone else's mistake (which is not what you said yesterday), a display of good faith? I would think not.Cebr1979 (talk) 03:08, 27 January 2014 (UTC)

"In the process of removing the X-Men listing..." I originally made three edits yesterday. I explained why I made those edits. You reverted all three edits WITHOUT explanation or acknowledgement that you had even seen my explanation. You simply reverted. Again. And again. And again. This talk page of yours was only mentioned AFTER you had reverted my edits without explanation. I told you to take it there yourself 'cause, quite frankly, I think you're the one that needs to talk about it. I would have discussed it with you but, was never given that respect. Instead, I simply got three e-mails saying my edits had been "reverted." You reverted my edits first and you did so more than three times. At least I tried talking to you. You just did it. And added in false accusations for good measure.Cebr1979 (talk) 03:16, 27 January 2014 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by Cebr1979 (talkcontribs) 03:15, 27 January 2014 (UTC)

I would now like everyone involved to go check-out the Doop (comics) page edit history (where this started). User: violated the 3-edit revert rule before I did. The very rule that he's saying I violated and is the reason for his complaint which led to an edit war... He broke. First. Do I need to file a separate complaint against him or can we put this to rest now? Him breaking a rule and then getting all upset about it is pretty juvenile.Cebr1979 (talk) 03:41, 27 January 2014 (UTC)

  • And now you're twisting things around. I never said Doop declined, I said it was never clear that he accepted. I gave you an explanation on the very first revert about it which I showed above. It's not "my policy", it's what I've been told by other users over my years around here. I can't go back and pull up every single one because it's been a long time. Don't tell me I never gave you a chance to talk about it, I asked you several times to start a talk section because it was YOUR edit that was the issue here, and I explained things about the Doop page at length on your talk page [88], while you only addressed me with accusations of bias and making things up [89]. And lastly, the 3RR is when someone reverts stuff on a page MORE than three times, which I have not done because I could see that this was going nowhere with you, so I came here. I'm done explaining my side of this stuff here. I've done so several times now, with links to back up why it was done and showing it in what I hope is a clear manner. I'll let the admins handle this now. (talk) 04:07, 27 January 2014 (UTC)

You DID do it three times! Go check the Doop page! I (as because I didn't realise I wasn't logged in) added X-Men as a team he had joined.

You REVERTED IT (and did some other stuff).

I (now going as Cebr1979) re-added it.

You REVERTED IT again.

I re-added it.


Just because your first revert was masked behind an edit you did to some other section of the page, still makes it a revert!

Like I said, go check! It's all right there!

Cebr1979 (talk) 04:31, 27 January 2014 (UTC)

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Note. Okay, we've now straightened out that Cebr1979 was editing as Please don't edit again without logging in first. There's no rule against it, but it looks bad, especially when you're in the middle of a dispute because it looks like you're trying to escape detection. As for WP:3RR, is correct. It requires four reverts in a 24-hour window, not three. As far as I can tell, neither of you violated 3RR, although you came close. However, not violating WP:3RR doesn't mean you can't be sanctioned for edit warring. So, consider yourselves warned. No more battling in the articles, and Cebr1979, stop screaming so much in your posts; it's not helpful. If you can't resolve your content disputes, then use the methods described in WP:DR to reach a consensus. If I see either of you resuming the battles on the article pages, you may be blocked without notice, even if you don't violate 3RR.--Bbb23 (talk) 04:58, 27 January 2014 (UTC)

Diff of attempt to resolve dispute on article talk page: [105]


The user seems to be bent on adding POV edits to this article, as well as removing sourced content and not engaging in trying to reach consensus on talk page (saying, quote, "I seek no consensus but the truth") and has been repeatedly warned by others for the behavior. Every edit the user has ever made has been engaging in behavior like this, mostly on this page and others. I apologize for engaging in his edit war; I will do so no longer after finding this noticeboard.

Furthermore, the user's idea of discussion on the talk page seems to be personal attack edits such as these: [106]

  • I endorse this report. As mentioned by himself, Ithinkicahn also came to violate 3RR, but he was defending a stable version that seems to have consensus and I don't think it would benefit Wikipedia to block him for this, even though he ideally should have handled the sitation differently, as he also states himself. Alien Sojourner has in addition to edit warring also made very serious personal attacks at Ithinkicahn as this diff shows. Iselilja (talk) 08:46, 27 January 2014 (UTC)
  • Stop x nuvola with clock.svg Stop x nuvola with clock.svg Both editors blocked – for a period of 24 hours Given the number of reverts on both sides both users have come out with 24 hour blocks and would do well to learn what to do in disputes. Primarily, ask for the editor who broke 3RR to be blocked or the page protected WITHOUT reverting for a 4th time. Callanecc (talkcontribslogs) 11:04, 27 January 2014 (UTC)

Comments:Over 3 reverts in the past 24 hours by Inayity and anytime I edit the lead of the article, he freaks out and reverts. He'll claim it's a 'radical change' or 'disruptive editing' even though my editorial has changed and some of my edits have been accepted. His reason for reversion is generally one not advised by Wikipedia and is usually: 'no consensus has been made on the talk page so revert', like on #2 and #3. He has awful punctuation and grammar, it can be hard to understand him at times. ShawntheGod (talk) 15:28, 27 January 2014 (UTC)

In your example you have demonstrated an edit war between you and me, the content is not identical and the issues are also not identical [111]rmv of spanish-web as a RS. rmv a POV discussed by all editors as not helpful, I could go on.--Inayity (talk) 16:19, 27 January 2014 (UTC)
Please be aware who this person reporting is For Months you being pushing this POV, first under the WP:SPA Ip and and now under the new name ShawntheGod, Shawn or 70.126 has been told by numerous editors that his contributions are a problem.[112] He insist on inserting one line over and over again. This is not the first time he has reported me. As for Grammar maybe his is referring to the talk page, as for horrible sentence construction the prize goes to him. just one example. Mixing controversial edits with minor edits is an old trick, so apologies for wasting one minor picture update in the process.--Inayity (talk) 15:49, 27 January 2014 (UTC)
Also Shawn you forgot to fill in the section where you attempted to resolve the issue. B/c his approach is to disregard the talk page and go ahead anyway. [113] Editors have told him this is not a good edit, yet he comes back and reinsert it. dec 2013 and for the New Year the POV edit. BTW, the source says nothing of the sort. --Inayity (talk) 15:52, 27 January 2014 (UTC)
For some reason Inayity keeps linking diffs to edits I supposedly made weeks ago, not any new editorial from thyself. We're discussing edits in late January of 2014, not ones from supposedly I made that far back. I already discussed my edit plans on the talk page and he even acknowledged that himself. Here: [114] and I let him know my changes here: [115] he also mentioned "pushing this POV" but what is my POV? Is it to make it seem like the Moors were a group of dolphins from the Pacific Ocean? I'm not understanding this supposed "POV" of mine. Perhaps he can enlighten me? ShawntheGod (talk) 16:42, 27 January 2014 (UTC)
And what's with taking the discussion else where? Fortuna Imperatrix Mundi 16:54, 27 January 2014 (UTC)
Just responding to him, that's all. ShawntheGod (talk) 17:04, 27 January 2014 (UTC)
Sorry, meant the other user as it happens Fortuna Imperatrix Mundi 17:08, 27 January 2014 (UTC)
At Fortuna WP:3RRNO try and be specific. you are throwing comments around and I dont follow the rationale. --Inayity (talk) 17:22, 27 January 2014 (UTC)
No, I expect not. Fortuna Imperatrix Mundi 17:25, 27 January 2014 (UTC)

───────────────────────── I was asked by Inayity to take a look at the issue. From the editing history, both users appear to have past 3RR, so I don't think any unilateral action is warranted. It's better instead to issue a simple warning/slap on the wrist to both parties, and allow the discussion to continue on the talk page in a civil manner. Middayexpress (talk) 17:08, 27 January 2014 (UTC)

Both parties in the dispute have agreed to cease any edit warring and work it out on Talk Page first.--Inayity (talk) 17:46, 27 January 2014 (UTC)
We have agreed to discuss the article in a civil manner and start clean, no more edit warring and all edits get discussed thoroughly or at least decently on the talk page. I don't think our views differ that much, but when we get into the moment it feels like we're completely on a different level. ShawntheGod (talk) 17:50, 27 January 2014 (UTC)

Diff of edit warring / 3RR warning: User talk:Johan92

Diff of attempt to resolve dispute on article talk page:[130]

I explained to Johan92 in many ways that his editions are wrong but the user tendentiously don't want to understand to keep in his edit warring see and keeps making wrong editions in the article. First he added the wrong data that corresponds to provinces and in his last edition he added wrong data correspond to cities and not to metropolitan areas of Peru. I request protection of the article because Johan92 keeps making his wrong editions. --Mastpolo (talk) 05:14, 27 January 2014 (UTC)

The data that the user Mastpolo puts in article have no reference, however if I put that, I rely on figures extracted pages as INEI[1] and UN [2], should be noted that there is no exact figure of the metropolitan population but we rely on the existing population in the city. Johan92 (talk) 05:50, 27 January 2014 (UTC)
Read this article Arequipa metropolitan area and tell us if some data is incorrect in it.--Mastpolo (talk) 06:17, 27 January 2014 (UTC)
Item that you have created just now, perhaps you want to make fun of us Johan92 (talk) 06:57, 27 January 2014 (UTC)
No matter when it has been created neither who has created the article. Just tell us if some data in that article is incorrect. Why don't you want to answer that? don't avoid the question.--Mastpolo (talk) 07:04, 27 January 2014 (UTC)
In references placed on the article in mention does not define the metropolitan population only indicates the population of the department of the provinces and districts, in addition to their references are old, however the references I put in my edits are July 2013 that is more accurate and current data Johan92 (talk) 07:21, 27 January 2014 (UTC)
So you can't tell that some data in the article is incorrect, and it is because all data in the article is correct. And once again understand that the data you want to add correspond to cities not to metropolitan areas.--Mastpolo (talk) 07:25, 27 January 2014 (UTC)
You also understand that the information you provide correspond to cities, not to metropolitan areas. Then tell me what is the difference between their data and my data?. Both we rely on the population of the city, the difference is that my references are more recent and are given by the National Institute of Statistics and Informatics Johan92 (talk) 07:41, 27 January 2014 (UTC)
You understand the population that is in the article Arequipa metropolitan area is correct and correspond to Arequipa metropolitan area the data you want to add correspond to the article of the city Arequipa there put your data and source for 2013 not in List of metropolitan areas of Peru. The article has information with sources for year 2014. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Mastpolo (talkcontribs) 07:46, 27 January 2014 (UTC)
and I understand that the information is correct just because you say so? Please sustaint your responses, and in your sources the metropolitan population no is indicated. Johan92 (talk) 07:59, 27 January 2014 (UTC)
Understand it is correct not because I say but you have to understand because the references that have support the article.--Mastpolo (talk) 08:01, 27 January 2014 (UTC)
stop spinning the issue and indicate the references to which it refers, that apparently no exist. Here is the link of the page from which I'm extracting my data: INEI[3] p36 Johan92 (talk) 13:49, 27 January 2014 (UTC)
You stop adding incorrect information that belongs to citie articles, don't add it to article List of metropolitan areas of Peru. You can add your data and source in the article List of cities in Peru. Understand the article is of metropolitan areas not of cities.--Mastpolo (talk) 14:08, 27 January 2014 (UTC)
  • Stop x nuvola with clock.svg Blocked – 24 hours.

Persistent edit-warring and ignored a (cautionary) warning- to the extent of deleting it from his TP. Fortuna Imperatrix Mundi 15:24, 27 January 2014 (UTC)

A user can delete a notice from their talk page once they have read it. --Inayity (talk) 16:24, 27 January 2014 (UTC)
Irrelevant. The significance of the comment was the user's ignoring of the notice rather than the deleting of it.Fortuna Imperatrix Mundi 16:31, 27 January 2014 (UTC)
"To the extent of deleting it" is the part that is irrelevant, as removing the notice is taken as acknowledgement of seeing the notice. You're also right at 3 reversions; stopping just short of breaking 3RR just to ensure that the other editor breaks it so that you can report him here can be seen as WP:GAMING, especially when the other editor has started a talk page discussion, which you have ignored. Given the time difference between you posting the warning to their talk page, when they next reverted, and when they removed it from their talk page, it's also entirely possible that they didn't see the notice until after they had already reverted. - Aoidh (talk) 16:37, 27 January 2014 (UTC)
It would be a shame if you showed as little faith as that, surely. The one undeniable fact is that the user has had plenty of opportunity to discuss the issue and stop warring, and done neither. As for my edits, do you suggest I edit a fourth time? And having watched someone (an editor of over two years standing I believe) breach 3RR, do you suggest I ignore it? It's also worth pointing that- as you say- they have probably by now read the notice, yet they have not commented here. Cheers. Fortuna Imperatrix Mundi 16:52, 27 January 2014 (UTC)
However, it takes 2 to edit-war. Whenever you see one brewing, you're supposed to stop your actions, and follow WP:DR - if you allow yourself to edit-war (whether or not you cross the 3RR threshold) you risk being blocked ES&L 17:50, 27 January 2014 (UTC)

Pictogram voting oppose.svg DeclinedAt this point, the user has no excuse for not communicating as reasonable attempts at discussion have been initiated. Further edit warring will result in a block. There is, however, no need for admin intervention at this time -- John Reaves 17:53, 27 January 2014 (UTC)

John, can I just point out that the "reasonable attempts at discussion" were indeed initiated... two days ago, which he never responded to! I agree it "take[s] two to edit war;" it also takes two to communicate! He- not me- has now warred with three' other editors, and although of course I hate to say "I told you so"... he's now on his FIFTH revert of the day on that page. Six in fact, if you count the self-rv. See what I mean. Cheers. Fortuna Imperatrix Mundi 18:42, 27 January 2014 (UTC)
Please read WP:EDITWAR: a self-revert is in no way a sixth revert, and self-reverting in the way he did doesn't really make that a fifth revert at all since they reverted their own edit and ceased edit-warring, so not only was that comment unnecessary, the duplicate report your filed below (really?) this one was as well. You were both edit warring, you both need to stop and use the talk page, and yes that includes you. - Aoidh (talk) 00:27, 28 January 2014 (UTC)
