  • This anon refuses to give up his quest to use BCE at Julius Caesar. He claims he made consensus at the Talk page but just made unconclusive statements.

  • The user also persists in removing his username (added by me) from his posts on the related talk page (example diff) and on my personal talk page (example diff). It's driving me crazy! aLii 23:17, 13 August 2006 (UTC)
24 hours for the anon, and 24 for you as well, alii--you too have broken 3rr, and this edit war is entirely between the two of you from what i can tell. --heah 00:35, 14 August 2006 (UTC)

Comments:Violation of 3RR

User keeps reinserting info that has been removed by myself and another editor. rootology (T) 17:02, 14 August 2006 (UTC)
User has been warned/RV'd again by another editor, but continues doing it. rootology (T) 17:05, 14 August 2006 (UTC)
I do not feel that the user has been warned sufficiently (one comment in an edit summary is not enough for someone who may be unfamiliar with Wikipedia). I will give a final warning, noting that one revert within the next 24 hours would be sufficient for a blocking. Robdurbar 18:26, 14 August 2006 (UTC)
Thank you. rootology (T) 18:32, 14 August 2006 (UTC)

Comments: User has been blocked for 3rr before and is aware of the rule. BhaiSaab talk 19:52, 14 August 2006 (UTC)

Comment - Above user never warned Subhash_bose of violation. He made only three reverts, BhaiSaab only wishes to discredit Subhash_bose.Bakaman Bakatalk 20:42, 14 August 2006 (UTC)

I don't think a notification is required - there's nothing on this page that states that. BhaiSaab talk 20:51, 14 August 2006 (UTC)

CommentWikipedia policy states prior notification for 15 hrs so that the alleged 3RR violator has the opportunity to undo his revert. Plus, I've been counting my reverts and they're less than three. The first case was an edit, not a revert. It is not even equivalent to a revert.Netaji 20:56, 14 August 2006 (UTC)

Where exactly does wikipedia policy state that? You're already aware of 3rr. BhaiSaab talk 20:59, 14 August 2006 (UTC)

Issue with first revert - The first revert is not even a revert.Bakaman Bakatalk 20:59, 14 August 2006 (UTC)

I inserted that material; he removed it, in effect partially undoing my edit, which according to WP:3rr is a revert. BhaiSaab talk 21:01, 14 August 2006 (UTC)
The first revert is an 'edit made by netaji not a revert. Bakaman Bakatalk 21:03, 14 August 2006 (UTC)
Having looked at the history, I can count at least 4 partial reverts from Subhash_bose on the Gurjat violence page, and at least 4 from BhaiSaab on the other page. 24hour block for Subhash_bose, who has been blocked before, and 8 hours for User BhaiSaab. Please work together to avoid edit wars. Robdurbar 22:21, 14 August 2006 (UTC)

Note from User:Bcorr[edit]

I have protected the page User:Subhash bose (a.k.a. Netaji) due to an edit war over a sockpuppet notce.

Time report made: 21:15, 14 August 2006 (UTC)

Comments: The 1st and 2nd diffs are reverts, but the 3rd and 4th are not. The 4th revert (which is somewhat misleading and should be showing this diff I presume) isn't a diff but a comparison of two versions which Bakaman made two edits [6] [7] in between. BhaiSaab talk 21:22, 14 August 2006 (UTC)

I hope this has nothing to do with making more noise. BhaiSaab talk 21:30, 14 August 2006 (UTC)

User:Abe.Froman reported by User:Mutant Zero (Result:Each user blocked for 12 hours)[edit]

Three revert rule violation on Crystal_Gail_Mangum (edit | talk | history | protect | delete | links | watch | logs | views). Abe.Froman (talk · contribs · deleted contribs · logs · edit filter log · block user · block log):

Time report made: 21:28, 14 August 2006 (UTC) +

User has been explained the difference between serving in the military and having the legal classification of a Veteran. It is his assumption that she is a Veteran. While no one is disputing the fact that she served in the military, that alone is not proof that she is a Veteran. There are many legal qualifications that she must meet before she is given that status. Serving in the military is just one of those qualifications, and is not the only qualification. No one has found a source, reliable or otherwise, which gives her legal status of a Veteran. We must remove this blurb of information until we do have a reliable source. Wikipedia is for facts, not assumptions or opinions.

User is well aware of the 3RR. It does not appear that he is interested in discussion, and will continue to revert edits.

Reverting vandalism does not fall under 3RR. See the talk page of the article Mutant Zero and his sockpuppets were defacing. Have a look at Mutant Zero's love notes to me on my User Talk Page as well. [8] [9] Abe Froman 22:07, 14 August 2006 (UTC)
I admit, the kid got me upset, but what he's not mentioning is that I removed that comment myself just minutes later once I cooled down. As a Veteran I have a vested interest in educating people on what makes someone a Veteran. Removing unverifiable claims that this woman is a Veteran is not vandalism. It's keeping Wikipedia free from assumptions and unverified facts. Mutant Zero 22:28, 14 August 2006 (UTC)
An admin has since rewritten & reinserted the content users such as Mutant Zero [10]. were repeatedly removing. This 3RR complaint does not fall under 3RR because reversion of vandalism is not covered under 3RR. Abe Froman 22:36, 14 August 2006 (UTC)
Blocked both users for 12 hours for 3RR vios. --Woohookitty(meow) 10:42, 15 August 2006 (UTC)

  • User is a sysop, sould know. Also had a prior 3RR report in July.


Time report made: 08:03, 15 August 2006 (UTC)

Comments: User does not understand the fact that removing the tag causes disruption to hundreds of pages, user also a sysop and making block threats towards me! Matthew Fenton (Talk | Contribs) 08:03, 15 August 2006 (UTC)

MatthewFenton is staging a one-man revert war to force his color functionality into that article, including reverting four times 24 hours and 7 minutes and edit warring using popups. He's ignored all suggestions that he not insert this code into the template, to the point where he counted comments that said "No, please stop doing this" as "Support" votes, then cited that vote tally as a reason that he should be able to ignore all criticism of his lousy color idea.

Users ed g2s (talk · contribs), Combination (talk · contribs), myself, and freakofnurture (talk · contribs) have all removed this code from the template, whereas the only ones to insert it are Fenton and a relatively new user named Insanity13 (talk · contribs).

I may have violated the 3RR, but who is carrying out a revert war here? - A Man In Bl♟ck (conspire | past ops) 08:26, 15 August 2006 (UTC)

You dont seem to realise this var. is being used, you removing it causes disruption. If you plan on removing all instances go ahead. But it should be left there till THEN! The concensous seems to all be support at the moment. Matthew Fenton (Talk | Contribs) 08:40, 15 August 2006 (UTC)

Additional notes:

  • An additional warning was given on an earlier occasion by User:Mavarin (diff), so he should have been aware of the rule.
  • Warnings placed on User talk:Marky48 were subsequently deleted, following the brief addition of a personal attack.
  • A warning about removing warnings was subsequently removed along with the 3RR warning.

You have had plenty of chances to read this policy and have been told that it is no more than three times in twenty four hours. As it is your first offence, but not your first warning, a block is appropriate. --Robdurbar 19:29, 15 August 2006 (UTC)

Is it just me? I do not see any differences in the diffs provided. Also, warning was given after last revert, according to timestamps? -- Avi 15:53, 16 August 2006 (UTC)
No, there aren't any differences, thus proving that they are indeed pure reverts. My understanding is that this is the point of the diffs - am I mistaken? Jakew 16:25, 16 August 2006 (UTC)
You are supposed to show what has changed, meaning the actual reversion from what was, to what is, so we can see what was changed. For example: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Administrators%27_noticeboard/3RR#User:Kingdom_hearts_lll_reported_by_User:Pentasyllabic_.28Result:24_hour_block.29 Also, it should be in chronological order, but that isn't such a big deal. -- Avi 16:28, 16 August 2006 (UTC)
Hmm. Seems less useful for immediately verifying reverts, but to paraphrase, never meddle in the affairs of admins... :) Here are the 'changes' diffs:

Three revert rule warning diff from before this report was filed here (if applicable) :

  • No warning given, user is aware of 3RR and has broken it purposefully on earlier occasions ([20]).

Time report made: 22:06, 16 August 2006 (UTC)

Comments:

Complex reverts; constant reverted element across all four instances is the re-insertion of the phrase "Albanian-speaking Greek settlers" instead of "Albanian settlers" in the first sentence of the "History" section (a hotly contentious POV detail discussed on talk page). Otherwise various additions and re-insertions into a text that was substantially rewritten in the meantime by other users. Deucalionite had previously inserted the same phrase and some other changes 7 times within 10 days in a slow edit-war below the 3RR threshold (3 Aug, 5 Aug, 8 Aug, 9 Aug, 11 Aug, 12 Aug, 12 Aug). User has announced that he will continue to revert irrespective of other editors' opinions ([21]). Was earlier blocked for 48 hours as a repeat offender in a similar case, revert-warring over a similar topic, on Souliotes. Fut.Perf. 22:06, 16 August 2006 (UTC)

May I speak freely in my defense? Future Perfect does not realize (after explaining to him in the discussion page; see "False Judgments" section) that I engaged in the "slow edit-war" (without breaking 3RR of course) in order to help speed up the process in seeing corrections made to the Arvanites history section. Though such actions may be seen as questionable, I was only focused on trying to stimulate anyone capable of refining the article that was in dire need of revisions. Future Perfect, indeed, did a fine job making the corrections in the history section.
Yes, I am aware of 3RR. However, Future Perfect does not want to admit that I did not revert the article three times in one day. Also, I did not say exactly that I would disregard other editors' statements. In fact, I explicitly stated the following: "I will continue to make any necessary additions to the article irrespective if you (or Aldux or Telex) revert the article continuously." Aldux, Future Perfect, and Telex kept reverting my sourced edits and really did not provide much encouragement for me to discuss what I provided since they were "set in their ways." I felt that discussing about what I contributed would have been largely ignored and so I actively placed my sourced contributions on the article in the hopes that they would be noticed by other users who would take the evidence I provided into consideration.
Also, I do care about what other editors have to contribute. Case in point, I never reverted the major corrections Future Perfect made to the history section. I made some changes to the section after Future Perfect placed his significant edits. Moreover, Future Perfect's critiques (see "Deucalionite's proposals") of some of my edits did not go unnoticed by me. To an extent, I improved upon the mistakes I made so as to provide readers with sourced and comprehensible text. Though the improvements upon my mistakes might not seem like much, they are an indication that I do acknowlegde criticism (though I'd much prefer constructive criticism).
I do not think that I should be banned this time since I did not revert the article three times in one day. It would be unfair to anyone if users were banned because they were marginalized while struggling to make an article better. Though the phrases I had to re-insert were the same and were deemed as POV, I still did not violate 3RR and all of the statements I provided in the article were sourced.
I await honorably for my punishment anyway, but I'd much prefer not to be banned for the reasons stated above. Thank you and I hope you understand where I am coming from. Deucalionite 00:11, 17 August 2006 (UTC)
I acknowledge that much in Deucalionite's changes at first constituted a good-faith attempt at improving an article which was in dire need of revision; that in his later re-statements of his edits he made some attempts at constructively taking certain criticism into account; and that he tried to deal constructively with my rewrite proposal. However, the continued insertion of the contentious "Albanian-speaking Greek" phrase still constitutes a controversial revert, which he knowingly upheld against strong talkpage objections, and technically it was done exactly four times within 24 hours as the diffs show.

User:Netscott reported by User:Deuterium (Result: no block)[edit]

Three revert rule violation on Islamophobia (edit | talk | history | protect | delete | links | watch | logs | views). Netscott (talk · contribs · deleted contribs · logs · edit filter log · block user · block log):

Time report made: 11:47, 16 August 2006 (UTC)

Comments: The reversions are slightly different to evade 3RR and game the system, but they all amount to inserting OR tags or commenting out a widely accepted section, which is absolutely against the consensus on the talk page and have all been reverted by many other people. This is a long-time user with many archives of his talk page, not a new user or anon, so I assumed a warning was unnecessary. Deuterium 11:47, 16 August 2006 (UTC)

It seems to me that Netscott was attempting to remove unverified claims from Wikipedia, which break WP:V in his opinion. This would not be a violation of 3RR. I just looked at the claims myself, and I am personally not convinced that this is a "widely accepted section". I think that the best solution is not to block Netscott, but to resolve this issue on the talk page (using protection of the page if the edit warring continues). jacoplane 15:44, 16 August 2006 (UTC)
This individual has tried to cite 5 diffs by citing the 1st diff twice. [fixed - Deuterium] What we have here is two indepedent reverts. The last two diffs cover different parts of the section of content. These edits were done towards meeting neutral point of view and to avoid original research. For the article to blanket refer to the given content as exemplary of "islamophobia" without citing a source stating as much puts Wikipedia out of neutrality for Wikipedia becomes the entity describing the information as demonstrative of "islamophobia".

User:Jacoplane commented on the lack of citations (paraphase here: "it's wrong") regarding the addition of Gallup poll content to the article. (Netscott) 16:16, 16 August 2006 (UTC)

This is a page with many reverts from many users. It seems that none have broken the 3RR as of now, but that many have come close. --Robdurbar 22:00, 16 August 2006 (UTC)

No I'm afraid you don't understand the concept of a "revert" - See WP:3RR. It says "undoing the actions of another editor or other editors in whole or part", which Netscott hsa clearly done at least 4 times within a 24 hour time frame. I'm changing this to open because you have failed to properly address this. Deuterium 00:34, 17 August 2006 (UTC)
Thank you of informing me of what policy I am aware of. However, can I sugest that if you have a complaint about my actions, taking it directly elsewhere on the administrator's noticeboard, rather than reverting (ironic under the circumstances) my edits. Or alternativedly, questioning me on my justifications, rather than presuming that I don't understand policy?
In my opinion, by commenting out the original research, Nescott had avoided reverting your edits - he had not undone your work or actions, merely sidelined it until he, or the community as a whole, could be convinced that it wasn't original research. By not removing the content, the editor was not 'undoing the actions' of anybody. I did not interpret these as reverts. --Robdurbar 20:39, 17 August 2006 (UTC)
That's ridiculous, many others had specifically removed the OR tag because it obviously wasn't OR and Netscott repeatedly put it back in. So, according to you people can revert as much as long as they are adding tags or commenting out material?
Secondly, by referring to the material as original research you are obviously taking a side in this debate, which places your actions and motivations under suspicion.
PS I'm relisting this on the 3RR noticeboard, because it was an obvious violation. Deuterium 23:20, 17 August 2006 (UTC)

Comments: Repeatedly removes casualty numbers provided by official sources, and replaces them with other numbers from marginal and possibly non-WP:RS web sites.

First violation and a user summary warning using jargon is insufficient for an IP editor who may be unfamiliar with Wikipedia. Robdurbar 20:49, 17 August 2006 (UTC)

Time report made: 00:55, 17 August 2006 (UTC)

Comments: Asked user to discuss his edit on his Talk Page, but he reverted the article again in violation of 3RR to contain his original edit that wasn't cited and is speculative in nature. He was warned by another user about prohibitions against OR on Wiki. He's also reverted reverts of his uncited edits on The Suite Life of Zack and Cody (though not in violation of the 3RR) and I warned him about the 3RR on his Talk page. He then reverted the article a fifth time in 24 hours, and I warned him about the 3RR, which you can see in a diff here: 1:19, August 16, 2006.

NOTE: The above report does not appear to have been done correctly, as it uses oldIDs, reports times in an unspecified timezone, and is chronologically backward. Here is the diff-based version with UTC times and in forward order, including a sixth reversion from the same anonymous editor in 12 hours:

I have not issued a third warning, as it seems counterproductive unless someone takes action on the first two.

User:64.231.199.31 and User:69.197.208.3 reported by User:TomTheHand (Result: sprotect)[edit]

Three revert rule violation on Iran-Iraq War (edit | talk | history | protect | delete | links | watch | logs | views). 64.231.199.31 (talk · contribs · deleted contribs · logs · edit filter log · block user · block log) and 69.197.208.3 (talk · contribs · deleted contribs · logs · edit filter log · block user · block log):

First of all, this diff shows where 69.197.208.3 admits to being the same user as 64.231.199.31. 69.197.208.3 says as I said before "We can only quote them about what they ACTUALLY DID to confirm that they accept the obvious truth...". 64.231.199.31 is the one who made that quote, here.

At that point, I warned the user. This is an OLDID, not a diff, because it was the first post on his user page: 17:19, August 16, 2006

The user's IP then changed, but he admitted (as shown above) that they were the same user. Another anon, User:65.190.135.228, came by and completely removed the disputed paragraph, stating that "The source is not correctly summarized":

69.197.208.3 then came in and inserted a revised paragraph:

This may or may not be a revert. User:Jonearles then removed the revised paragraph, stating that "The paragraph still doesn't accurately summarize the source." 69.197.208.3 reverted:

This is a definite revert, the 6th within 24 hours, after being warned about the 3RR. Note that these last edits come with summaries stating that the user is editing in accordance with the talk page. This implies consensus, when in fact he simply stated "this is what I'm going to do" and then posted it.

For actual diffs I recommend this WP:ANI post. From looking at the diffs there one can see that there's only one individual who's been reverting here (I even warned Deuterium (talk · contribs) against 3RR on this very page). As well the only editor interefering here is again Deuterium by altering User:Robdurbar's original edit commentary. (Netscott) 03:19, 17 August 2006 (UTC)
