Notes: This is a complex incident, and I already reported it to WP:AIV [2] While these may not all be regarded as identical reverts, the effect of the edits has been to reinsert the user's unreferenced and undiscussed views, to the great detriment of the article.

This is a complex issue with a user refusing to axcept information given contrary to his opinion and with a history of using reverts to disrupt progress on the issue. Inge 12:21, 3 August 2006 (UTC)

  • No 3RR (31 July?), no action. El_C 12:55, 3 August 2006 (UTC)
Yes I realise that, but this user has been using the revert tactic on this and other articles for too long. He has apparently finally learned to technically avoid the 3RR, but the problems he is causing remains. Inge 02:04, 4 August 2006 (UTC)

Inge should get a punishment for this fake accuse on me. This is a part of Inge attacking tactic against me to camouflage Inge unsources and pro-Norwegian edits on history pages. Now on Normans. You should think the case here on wikipedia was very simple, that you just need citing sources before edit pages. But not for Inge. All i do is revert unsources rewrite back to old version. --Comanche cph 07:43, 4 August 2006 (UTC)

Comments:

  • The first one isn't a revert, although the other three are. No violation. Stifle (talk) 21:04, 3 August 2006 (UTC)
  • You're mistaken, the 1st one is a revert, it removed the word "creationist" 14:58, 2 August just as the version being reverted to did: 19:34, 29 July. That makes 4, and a violation. FeloniousMonk 21:19, 3 August 2006 (UTC)
  • The hell it isn't a revert -- same section of the article, same overall purpose. Which part of the following does Schlafly's edits not violate? "Reverting, in this context, means undoing the actions of another editor or other editors in whole or part. It does not necessarily mean taking a previous version from history and editing that. A revert may involve as little as adding or deleting a few words or even one word. Even if you are making other changes at the same time, continually undoing other editors' work counts as reverting." •Jim62sch• 21:55, 3 August 2006 (UTC)
  • Stifle, could you say why you feel the first edit isn't a revert? I was about to issue a block before I saw your comment, because it looks like a clear violation to me. SlimVirgin (talk) 21:57, 3 August 2006 (UTC)

  • "Previous version reverted to" is simply the old version of the page which, after the reverts were made, was reinstated. Adding a fifth revert instead means that it isn't strictly needed. Stifle (talk) 21:10, 3 August 2006 (UTC)

This was not a violation of the 3RR as the reverts are different from one another. And the changes are not subtle. One change is a full paragraph. Also, if you wish to report him again, please use diffs. What you used here are not diffs but instead are what the page looked like at that particular time. For example, for 02:31, this is the diff. And one final thing. Please use the time as we use it, not a conversion to your local time. It makes it much easier for us to track. --Woohookitty(meow) 10:15, 4 August 2006 (UTC)

Note the above editor engaged in the same pattern of repeat revisions on this page engaging in the same type of personal attack and innuendo. There appears to be a group of editors with the same p.o.v. working together here.59.14.200.242 15:38, 4 August 2006 (UTC)
I have reverted the open proxy edits to the anti-masonry page for a fourth and fifth time today and am calling attention to Wikipedia:3rr#Exceptions, expecially "Reverting banned or blocked users." There is no doubt in my mind and other frequent editors have shared this opinion that the open proxy assualt is from Lightbringer. He has used open proxies in the past. He frequently uses misleading edit summaries. This edits are carbon copies of ones he's attempted before. He has also accused that this "page is about anti-masonry not conspiracy theory" on several occasions. There is currently a request to lock the page being processed at Wikipedia:Requests_for_page_protection. Wikipedia:Requests_for_checkuser/Case/Lightbringer has further proof of Lightbringer using open proxies.
Furthermore, I have never been "3rr and found guilty of violating Wikipedia guidelines regarding personal attacks on previous occasions" Check my block log at [[11]], this is a flat out lie in an attempt to discredit me. Another common tactic of Lightbringer. Chtirrell 15:26, 4 August 2006 (UTC)
This user has a lengthy pattern of multiple 3rr and personal attack violations under multiple user names.

Comments: This is more removal of unfree images. Editors reverting unfree image cleanup attempts need to stop. Jkelly 03:55, 5 August 2006 (UTC)

I think the point is the reversions need to stop. Because it seems like this is fitting the definition of an edit war. Discussion is on going and without consensus on the policy interpretations these pages are being reverted. BCV 04:04, 5 August 2006 (UTC)

The options here are to lock the page, block the editors in violation of unlicensed image policy, or to continuously apply cleanup efforts. What do you recommend? Jkelly 04:08, 5 August 2006 (UTC)
Not to be combative but I do not subscribe to the interpretation that use of the logos violates the policy although this may not be the forum for that discussion. BCV 04:12, 5 August 2006 (UTC)
We need to not be further republishing these images until the policy matter is settled. No block. Jkelly 04:15, 5 August 2006 (UTC)
Curious how quick that decision was made. Given the involvement in [Mediation Case: Fair Use Images on Sports Page - College Football Specific] BCV 04:27, 5 August 2006 (UTC)
If you read the page, you'll notice that I was listed there to provide an opposing view, not because I've ever edited one these college football articles that the cleanup attempt is being applied to. Jkelly 04:32, 5 August 2006 (UTC)
Actually I was thinking someone not involved in the case would provide an object view on whether a violation had occurred but since that is not possible obviously a violation did not occur. BCV 04:40, 5 August 2006 (UTC)

Comments: i'm just trying to put a lid on this guy who insists on rewriting the whole article (which should be allowed to stableize lest "edit creep" move it from a reasonably good article to something much different. he's been at it for weeks. he's making wholesale changes without listening to the reservations of others. it's about time he play by the rules and i warned him about 3RR just before his last revert.

If you read the talk, you'll see that I am seeking incremental improvements to a long wordy section that Rbj wrote, and rather than discuss it with me he reverts, goes a different direction, and calls me a dumptruck. Dicklyon 05:53, 5 August 2006 (UTC)

Doesn't look like 4R to me... as is traditional, you haven't filled in the "prev version" William M. Connolley 08:19, 5 August 2006 (UTC)

i itemized them. i never understood exactly what "prev version" is. you would think that this would be a stable article, being a fairly dry technical article, but the version changes so often, dozens of changes per day, that i actually would not be able to tell you what the "base version" is. r b-j 16:06, 5 August 2006 (UTC)
It's unlikely that the article will reach a stable version when it is still full of both not-quite-right and not-quite-logical attempts to be semi-rigorous. That's why we're working on it. If you continue to vigorously defend your big bloated section against improvements, that doesn't make it stable. And if you continue to ignore my pleas to engage in discussion, on the article talk page and your own talk page, we're not likely to find an easy way forward. Dicklyon 17:40, 5 August 2006 (UTC)
the issue here is whether or not you reverted my changes to the article more often than 3 times in a 24 hour period. content discussion is on the talk page. r b-j 20:54, 5 August 2006 (UTC)
I do hereby confess to that crime, and I apologize and won't let it happen again. I've since added lots more discussion on the talk page, and still see no responses from you there or elsewhere. Dicklyon 22:45, 5 August 2006 (UTC)

I'm just checking to make sure I didn't violate 3RR at Politicization of science.

I was making one continuous series of edits to the Examples sections about eugenics, based on Crichton's published views. Two or 3 times while making these consecutive edits I was reverted by Duncharris (2x) and Kenosis (1x).

I went ahead and finished the edit series (which I consider to be "one"), noting in the Edit Summary that I would self-revert afterwards so as not to run afoul of 3RR and offering to discuss the matter in talk.

I figured that in order to have anything to discuss, it would be good to finish the edit (which included source for a POV about Crichton). Indeed, Kenosis copied the removed text to talk, with a comment (which I answered).

So I don't think this was an edit war. --Uncle Ed 17:47, 5 August 2006 (UTC)

LOL, how do get to the point of possibly violating 3RR if you're not edit warring. I encourage everyone to take a look at Ed Poor's edit history to see any number of examples of edit warring and POV pushing at a number of articles. [29] 128.64.146.21

Relevant policy:

  • "For instance, consecutive edits by the same editor are considered to be one."

Was this a violation on my part? If so, would you please guide me so I can make sure I don't repeat it? I don't want to edit war about this. I'd prefer to talk it out on the discussion page and come to consensus. --Uncle Ed 17:18, 5 August 2006 (UTC)

Ed, you were an admin and bureaucrat, how can you possibly not know the answer to this question? I must admit that this is one of the more interesting tactics I've seen..."Your Honor, you mean going through a stop sign is illegal? I thought you could go through the ones with white around the edges." •Jim62sch• 21:59, 5 August 2006 (UTC)


Ed is being extremely upfront about all of this, the least that could be done is give him a good faith answer. Arkon 04:16, 6 August 2006 (UTC)

12h. I don't think the BLP get-out-of-jail-free card applies William M. Connolley 19:15, 5 August 2006 (UTC)

I never was in jail, and never needed such a card. Here is the policy William M. Connolley refused to abide by:
WP:BLP states:
Editors should remove any unsourced or poorly sourced negative material from biographies of living persons and their talk pages, and may do so without discussion; this is also listed as an exception to the three-revert rule. This principle also applies to biographical material about living persons found anywhere in Wikipedia. Administrators may enforce the removal of unsourced material with page protection and blocks, even if they have been editing the article themselves. Editors who re-insert the material may be warned and blocked. See the blocking policy and Wikipedia:Libel.
Administrators encountering biographies that are unsourced and negative in tone, where there is no NPOV version to revert to, should delete the article without discussion (see WP:CSD criterion A6).
Jimmy Wales has said:
"I can NOT emphasize this enough. There seems to be a terrible bias among some editors that some sort of random speculative 'I heard it somewhere' pseudo information is to be tagged with a 'needs a cite' tag. Wrong. It should be removed, aggressively, unless it can be sourced. This is true of all information, but it is particularly true of negative information about living persons." 1
He considers "no" information to be better than "speculative" information and reemphasizes the need for sensitivity:
"Real people are involved, and they can be hurt by your words. We are not tabloid journalism, we are an encyclopedia." 2

  • As a novice user and my first 3rr report I am certain I have made formatting mistakes, My apologies.--Freepsbane 20:48, 5 August 2006 (UTC)
  • the user in question may have done this on other occasions and may also be using sockpupets, he never acknowledges other users comments, and seems to be completely unwilling to compromise. Further more his relentless edit warring seems to have brought any constructive additions to a halt.--Freepsbane 20:46, 5 August 2006 (UTC)
  • Also as a junior member I am quite inept at this matter so I need an admin to take this out of my hands.--Freepsbane 20:48, 5 August 2006 (UTC)

Please note that there must be 4 reverts listed - reports with only 3 will be removed. The "previous version reverted to" is there to show that the first revert really is a revert - it should be filled in to a previous version of the page which the first revert reverts to.

Time report made: 02:17, 6 August 2006 (UTC)

Comments: User repeatedly inserts poorly worded, unencyclopedic, and disparaging "criticism" section out of apparent (as stated on talk page and numerous project pages) animosity towards biography subject. Also semi-vandalizes other section to contain rambling digressions, and plays shennanigans with NPOV and other spurious and unexplained tags. But the wild reverting to the "criticism" rejected by all other editors is the main thing.
