Cwobeel constantly tries to reduce the page and its content, though at some point agreed to add information which directly relates to "Arab Winter". He got a formal SCW&ISIL warning earlier this year. Today, my new additions with sources specifically referring to Arab Winter were reverted by him twice. Cwobeel refused to self-revert his second edit, claiming that i also violated 1RR (though i reverted only once, with my first edit being addition of new info).GreyShark (dibra) 16:53, 26 November 2015 (UTC)

  • I have also reported the user at WP:ANI, as I believe they are a subtle vandal, after checking their history on other articles as well. Their reverts on the article in questions are of bonafide, valid and generally useful edits. The reverts include removal of valid sourced content.

User:Unbuttered Parsnip reported by User:Mateothehistorian (Result: No violation)[edit]


I'm reporting User:Unbuttered Parsnip's edit war in Lazaro Mangubat Article for non stop edit warring and ignoring my attempt to discuss the issue on the talk page (here) Dont make any changes or jump into any statement as not true without showing any basis. I was in Lawis for a visit the structure in front of it was a memorial with its inscription that the Kota was built in year 1790. Basing from this then your 1830 edit will be untrue. on the upper hand I read book written during spanish time I found out that the structure was built in 1630 and not in 1790.... So I didn't follow the year 1790 as the founding date of the Kota which was posted by the municipality of Madridejos but the year 1630 as the founding date as narrated by fray Medina he just kept on with the edit war, again,again, and again, choosing not to heed. Please take appropriate measures.

  • Comment: I see no 3RR violation on the accused editor's part (are you aware that the reverts must be within 24h, not during the span of several days?); on the other hand, I see a very incomplete edit warring report. I also don't see a notification of this report on the editor's talk page, so I've taken the liberty of sending one myself. LjL (talk) 23:30, 26 November 2015 (UTC)
  • I made 3RR a few days ago. That editor kept complete WP:CB, kept adding parts of text which were nonsense - such as that subject built a church in 1630 and also that he made at 1870 at the age of 50. I made several additional to the article, by WP:V and WP:RS which he ignored and reverted. I was going to move to WP:DE yesterday but I thought he'd gone away. Note that his editing for the last nearly three years have been about 60 edits of Lazaro Mangubat and half a dozen of Madridejos, Cebu. That's about it, nothing else. About the same number of edits as I made the last 2 days. Maybe I shall take him to WP:ANIUnbuttered parsnip (talk) mytime= Fri 08:51, wikitime= 00:51, 27 November 2015 (UTC)

I have mentioned the instances of Krzyhorse22's edit warring on the stoning article and summarised my attempts at resolving the dispute here. Krzyhorse22 has been active on Wikipedia since the post on the article's talk page was made but has not engaged on said talk page.

You're both revert warring. Seek dispute resolution. --slakrtalk / 05:34, 25 November 2015 (UTC)
Sorry about that. Krzyhorse22 kept deleting sourced text despite my repeated requests to solve the dispute first so I kept reverting him. If he deletes the sourced text again, I will not revert him but I will request a Third Opinion (3O). I hope that is okay. —Human10.0 (talk) 21:23, 25 November 2015 (UTC)
As per my observation, these two users reporting each other on ANI, SPI and now here at Edit warring board. I think admin attention is needed regarding articles in which they are involved. Maybe one of them can be topic banned to resolve this. --Human3015TALK  21:52, 25 November 2015 (UTC)
I would like to point out that I only reported Krzyhorse22 to this edit warring board, I did not report him on SPI or ANI. Saying "these two users reporting each other" implies I reported him on all those boards too, even though I did not. Krzyhorse22, on the other hand, did accuse me yesterday of being a sock here, on a page investigating whether he is using a sock (he has since heavily edited that page and also removed his accusation against me). I am not aware of anyone reporting me or him on ANI. —Human10.0 (talk) 22:19, 25 November 2015 (UTC)
ANI was this, indirectly related to you. Anyway, you both have to resolve your issues, continuous conflict with same editor makes editing unhappy. Maybe you both can ignore each other for some time. --Human3015TALK  22:38, 25 November 2015 (UTC)
Thanks for letting me know about the ANI. I am still open to resolving the issue, I do not want any animosity between me and Krzyhorse22. I wish I could ignore him but that's very hard to do when he is accusing me of POV-pushing just for restoring sourced material he deleted without giving any reason.
I also have a question: The result below says I can't make reverts on the stoning article. Does that mean I'm not allowed to make any reverts or am I just not allowed to revert the text that is disputed between me & Krzyhorse22? The thing is an IP has recently made a small edit where they messed up the grammar of a sentence on the stoning article. I would like to correct that.—Human10.0 (talk) 05:47, 26 November 2015 (UTC)
It's not a crime or a violation of Wikipedia to report someone at SPI, everyone does it and so did I because I was 100% convinced socks were unnecessarily following me. However, I have not breached any Wikipedia policy so I see no justification for reporting me here. About the article Stoning, which is about punishment. Human10.0 believes tribal leaders in Afghanistan stone people to death as punishment. He cites Emma Batha who states, "In some countries, such as Mauritania and Qatar, stoning has never been used although it remains legal. However, in other countries, such as Afghanistan and Iraq, stoning is not legal but tribal leaders, militants and others carry it out extrajudicially." [21] Emma Batha does not clarify if she's talking about tribal leaders in Iraq or Afghanistan. All the other sources say only Taliban soldiers do this but as a crime. I have not seen any report in which Afghan tribal leaders doing it or even being accused. Human10.0 is simply POV pushing in articles.--Krzyhorse22 (talk) 22:46, 25 November 2015 (UTC)
Krzyhorse22 please do not selectively quote the article. The relevant passage, as I pointed out on your talk page, is: "In some countries, such as Mauritania and Qatar, stoning has never been used although it remains legal. However, in other countries, such as Afghanistan and Iraq, stoning is not legal but tribal leaders, militants and others carry it out extrajudicially. "In Afghanistan, warlords are manipulating religion to terrorise the population for their own political ends. Stoning is one way of doing that," said Shameem, a human rights lawyer who is co-ordinating the Stop Stoning Women campaign."[22] I think it is clear now that the article was talking about Afghanistan. I would also like to point out that I wasn't the person who added the part about tribal leaders, that was someone else. When you deleted their contribution without justification, I merely re-added it because it was reliably sourced. There are many reports of Afghan tribal warlords/leaders carrying out stoning (in violation of current Afghan law), I guess I will have to add some of those reports to the wiki article to convince you that other sources also mention tribal leaders being involved in stoning incidents. One article also reports how local officials are known to blame Taliban insurgents for stonings to cover up for the actions of their tribal leaders. Please stop insulting me with accusations of POV-pushing, it is evident I am not doing that. Anyways, if you want to discuss this matter further, I would appreciate if you do so on the stoning article's talk page. We shouldn't clutter this board. —Human10.0 (talk) 05:47, 26 November 2015 (UTC)
Warlords are a class of criminals fighting against the government and people of Afghanistan, they are not tribal leaders. A tribal leader is someone who represents a tribe. The article stoning is not about the crime of stoning someone to death, it's the opposite of that. That article you posted is based on a theory. Only one woman says tribal leaders "could have" done it but the so many news reports say Taliban had issued the punishment.--Krzyhorse22 (talk) 16:28, 26 November 2015 (UTC)
  • Reports blame stoning on both "tribal warlords" and "tribal leaders" which is why I used the phrasing "Afghan tribal warlords/leaders" above.
  • What you claim is not what the stoning article is about. It is simply about a form of capital punishment which may be legal or criminal, depending upon the jurisdiction. The 'Usage today' portion of the article has numerous examples of stoning being treated as a crime (when carried out to punish people extrajudicially) and also as a legal form of punishment, depending upon the country where it occurs.
  • You are misrepresenting the news article, downplaying what it says and conveniently not mentioning what the "one woman" (i.e. Wazhma Frogh, an Afghan women's rights activist and co-founder of Research Institute for Women, Peace and Security) went on to say; please see the stoning article's talk page where I talk about the article. The reason I linked to that article wasn't to claim that 'tribal leaders stoned the woman in the video' (I did not even imply that), it was to show you that some stonings are carried out by tribal leaders but are blamed on the Taliban (who also have a reputation for stoning), a fact acknowledged even by Afghans (like Wazhma Frogh). As you are an Afghan, I can see how you would not want unpleasant facts about your homeland to be published but your objections to sources that mention those unpleasant facts are getting out of hand ( "based on a theory", really?). Anyways, there's no use in further arguing on this page; the editors here aren't going to listen to our arguments and resolve this issue for us. If you want to talk to/argue with me regarding the stoning article, go to the stoning article talk page (also on that talk page, I would like you to produce just one report that says "only Taliban soldiers do [stoning]" as you claimed above that: "All the other sources say only Taliban soldiers do [stoning]"). I am removing this page from my watchlist now. —Human10.0 (talk) 05:25, 27 November 2015 (UTC)
  • What you're saying makes no sense. Taliban, warlords and all the other Afghan criminals belong to tribes. They should be collectively called criminals, the same way we call all current Afghan rebel forces Taliban. There are good tribal leaders and bad ones. I'm not responding in the talk page of that article because it's not a big deal to me. You're doing a great job, keep posting more news reports and other information so readers are aware.--Krzyhorse22 (talk) 20:28, 27 November 2015 (UTC)
  • Result: There is a dispute on whether stoning occurs in Afghanistan. As User:Slakr stated above User:Krzyhorse22 and User:Human10.0 are both edit warring. Consider an WP:RfC or use the WP:Dispute resolution noticeboard. Further reverts by either of you on the stoning article may lead to admin action unless consensus has been previously found on the talk page. Thank you, EdJohnston (talk) 03:03, 26 November 2015 (UTC)
    EdJohnston, I made 1 revert per day and it was done just like a normal edit. I didn't know Human10.0 was starting an edit war with me, when I realized that I stopped. It's plain stupid to warn me.--Krzyhorse22 (talk) 16:36, 26 November 2015 (UTC)
One revert per day is edit warring, if you are always removing the same material. Open an WP:RFC or use some other method of WP:Dispute resolution. EdJohnston (talk) 20:49, 27 November 2015 (UTC)

Comments:

Despite having been made aware of the WP:GS/SCW&ISIL 1RR that affects this article, this editor has continued to revert changes with misleading edit summaries, and has little presence on the talk page. 1RR has clearly been broken. RGloucester 06:54, 27 November 2015 (UTC)

Per WP:RV#Exceptions: "Edits that do not contribute to edit warring are generally considered to be exceptions to the three-revert rule." I assume this also applies to the one-revert rule. Can you explain why the edit summaries are misleading? Firebrace (talk) 07:12, 27 November 2015 (UTC)
You wrote that this edit was "vandalism". Have you read the definition of "vandalism"? This edit was not "vandalism", and does not qualify for the exception to 1RR, even if the edit was wrong. What exactly was "unhelpful" about these changes? This was certainly not excepted from 1RR. The same applies for the last edit. In each case, none of the edit was vandalism. Vandalism has a specific definition. Vandalism is a "deliberate damage to Wikipedia", for which none of these qualify. You should've made one revert, then stopped. Instead, you kept reverting under the false banner of reverting "vandalism". That's inappropriate. RGloucester 16:55, 27 November 2015 (UTC)
I don't need to justify the second revert—it speaks for itself. Legacypac's edit was a poor attempt at "clarification": there is already a paragraph about the ringleader, "Bataclan theatre" doesn't need linking a sixth time, and changing "the final bomber" to "the third unidentified bomber" implies there were two other unidentified bombers at that location. It was a nonsense edit by someone who obviously hasn't read the article. In spite of many challenges, we have a good article that does justice to the victims of the attacks, and of which I, LjL, InedibleHulk, Bod, Peter and the 'team' can be proud. Firebrace (talk) 19:45, 27 November 2015 (UTC)
WP:OWNERSHIP of an article isn't appropriate, and no "team" should exist. Cliques of editors monopolising the development of articles is not beneficial to article development, and is in fact detrimental. Regardless of whether it was a "nonsense edit" or not, there is 1RR on the article, and clear vandalism is the only exception. That edit was not vandalism in the Wikipedia sense. RGloucester 20:47, 27 November 2015 (UTC)
There is no WP:OWNERSHIP and you have reported this editor for a technical violation of 1RR even though there was absolutely no harm done (in fact all the reverts were useful), and anyway I was wondering, how exactly is reporting someone for breach of sanctions that were put in place to avoid conflicts about Syria and ISIL when in fact none of the reverts involve Syria or ISIL in any way not gratuitously WP:GAMING the system to make a WP:POINT (the point presumably being that you really like these sanctions)? Wikipedia is not about application of rules for its own sake ("sorry, you may not have done anything detrimental, but the rules said you had to be reported!"). Bothersome. LjL (talk) 21:30, 27 November 2015 (UTC)
  • Comment - please let's stop being ridiculous with literal application of WP:1RR. "We" have kept being told it would be used with common sense without blocks for benign edits, yet that's exactly what seems to be attempted here. Firebrace is one of the two top contributors to November 2015 Paris attacks and his edits have generally been very positive contributions to the article. I count at least 52 talk page edits, so he's present enough there, too. The three (unrelated) reverts he's being reported for look like good reverts, and the one labelled "vandalism" does look like a revert of vandalism, since even though it's subtle, the edit arbitrarily removed part of the content and completely changed the meaning of the sentence, which is unlikely to have been done by mistake. Speaking of this sort of nonsense application of rules, though, I will point out that it's hard to complain when almost nobody who had previously objected has now actually expressed their opinion at my motion about it. Don't speak up, and this is what happens. LjL (talk) 17:03, 27 November 2015 (UTC)
  • Comment FWIW, I agree with LjL (talk. This is a Slippery slope, and WP:1RR ought to be tempered by common sense, and not a headlong rush to Procrustian interpretation and Draconian punishment. 7&6=thirteen () 17:27, 27 November 2015 (UTC)
  • Result: Firebrace is warned for violation of WP:1RR. The next admin may or may not believe in a relaxed interpretation of the rule. It is better to stay under the limit to avoid problems. Firebrace's incorrect charges of vandalism don't strengthen their case. Your citation of WP:Reverting doesn't help. That is only an essay; see WP:Edit warring for the policy.

When I notified the IP of this report, they replied: "Needs to be described as an "Editing by an idiot (Kate Wishing)" report." [31] KateWishing (talk) 13:57, 27 November 2015 (UTC)

User KateWishing has a large number of complaints on her Talk page about changing or re-writing perfectly acceptable articles, although in this case, the original article was not mine; I have simply added few references over the last year or the odd grammar tidy. She has further stated that she has medical training, presumably an expert, in this subject, but refuses to provide evidence of such, or links to publications/papers, so I smell yet another false Wiki-PhD claim brewing. With that number of complaints from many users, across a number of subjects, it is clear where the common denominator is here. Looking at her edit-war history, of which she is a frequent keyboard-warrior, she has a clear modus operandi, in that she will edit without pre-talk or consultation with authors, and then enter into a 'battle' once she realizes that she has stepped too far, or unnecessarily removed perfectly valid links. She has annoyed a large number of people by reading their comments. In this case, she altered a great number of previously good reference links, that I was myself using for my own recovery from this illness, and steered the majority towards one source, which would imply a vested interest. Additionally, the original links to the two doctors credited with furthering the original research about RCVS, after whom the illness is sub-title named, were removed except one. In all KateWishings continual aggravation to a number of users should be called into question, and her intransigence to accept refs from e.g. Oxford University Press and The Lancet, on medical matters, clearly shows a huge problem with an editor who is challenging accepted and respected reference sources. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 86.28.73.170 (talk) 14:20, 27 November 2015 (UTC)

Result: Article semiprotected two months due to IP-hopping edit warrior. Use the talk page to get consensus; be aware of the requirements of WP:MEDRS. Drawing conclusions from primary sources in the medical domain is risky. EdJohnston (talk) 18:09, 27 November 2015 (UTC)
in what way is someone who uses an iPad at home and an office PC at different times of the day, a "IP hopping edit warrior"? Do you people not even understand the basics of the TCP protocol in that the office and home broadband providers obviously use different IP ranges? Crikey! To make insulting claims otherwise simply shows the maturity and knowledge of those who are, somehow, supposed to be in charge. It's no wonder Wikipedai is in the state it is, and its reputation continues to fall as nothing more than an experiment that clearly doesn't work in reality. 86.21.250.21 (talk) 20:57, 27 November 2015 (UTC)
EdJohnston please note that user KateWishing has now undone an article three times Reversible cerebral vasoconstriction syndrome and removed fully evidenced and referenced sources. I believe that this is in contradiction of Wiki Rules. Considering the number of complaints against her from a number of users across a variety of articles, I am surprised that rules are not being applied evenly. I expect to see her removal reverted back until she can disprove the existence of those links, which are fully accessible by the refs given. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 86.21.250.21 (talk) 21:38, 27 November 2015 (UTC)

Diff of attempt to resolve dispute on article talk page: [68]

Comments:

I'm not involved in this edit war, and don't take sides in the conflict, but the edit warring has to stop. I'm particularly worried that after NeilN warned the user,[69], they acknowledged they had "had my 3" [70] and then waited some hours before reverting again. That's not the right attitude, 3RR does not give permission to edit war at will as long as one spread it out a bit, so continuing the edit war after both receiving and acknowledging NeilN's warning is not a good sign. Jeppiz (talk) 17:01, 27 November 2015 (UTC)

I have made substantial improvements to the lead, to the historical views section, and to the Gospels section. If this time I went too far, it's because making progress is a struggle. For regular edits, I have a history of being reverted and then taking it up in the talk page. I thought a POV tag was different from a regular edit because it says not to take the tag down while the dispute is in progress. Two editors took the tag down anyway. I wouldn't have been pushed the 3RR limit except that taking down a dispute tag seems like a bad faith move. Before putting up the tag, I tried to deal with this issue for weeks on the talk page and got nowhere. I am using the POV tag to draw more attention to the dispute. Any progress I have made in making the Jesus page conform better to RSs has been a struggle against editors who want to promote the canonical Gospel view. The Jesus page deviates dramatically from how neutral RSs cover the topic. I'd love to get more eyes on it. Jonathan Tweet (talk) 15:58, 28 November 2015 (UTC)

  • Result: User:Jonathan Tweet is warned that repeatedly adding or removing the POV tag counts as edit warring for purposes of this noticeboard. In his edit summary he has stated "I'll stop fighting over the POV tag", which allows this report to be closed with no block. It is elementary that someone losing an article dispute (and afraid of breaking 3RR) would wish to put up a POV tag, which results in continuing the edit war in another form. The POV tag should remain if and only if consensus supports keeping it in place. EdJohnston (talk) 20:07, 28 November 2015 (UTC)

Meanwhile, User:Mai-Sachme has reverted one more time, that is 5 times in less than 24 hours.

For a better understanding of the case, I'd like to point out this notice and that discussion on an admin's talk page.

For a better understanding of the case, you should have specified that I've already answerer all of your points, but since you didn't I'll have to do it again here. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 151.20.0.48 (talkcontribs)

We are dealing here with a user, who appears under various IPs (5 or 6, I've lost the count...) and doesn't do anything (!) else than changing the order of German/Italian names, exchanging German town names with Italian ones and so on (despite the fact that both of them are official). That is clearly disruptive editing.

My IP always starts with 151.20.0-1-2-3. It's called "dynamic IP". And, again, the first IP you met, 5.101.99.101, was_NOT_me. HE made such changes, not me. There's one only edit I've ever done regarding South Tyrol with the other IP I used, 46.252.205.187, and you know. Anyway, changing a German name which has to be kept in German to Italian is disruptive, but changing a German name which has to be kept in Italian to Italian is constructive. If it wasn't so, then everybody would be free to change every single Bolzano name to Bozen in all the articles where it's written.— Preceding unsigned comment added by 151.20.0.48 (talkcontribs)
  • On principle, WP:NOTBROKEN should be a user's guideline. The user behind the IPs isn't interested at all in the articles' subjects, not one single edit was a clear improvement of an article. How on earth is that an improvement? Sorry, but that kind of behaviour falls perfectly into the pattern of an nationalistic edit warrior...
Aren't you talking again about the first IP, which wasn't me, are you? You're talking about that single Meran(o) problem, aren't you? How on Earth is your revert an improvement? Face it: the name is Merano, period. If you disagree, you should go to Talk:Merano and create a new discussion, proposing to change the name from Merano to Meran. Otherwise, you're wrong. And a nationalist... Pardon, if you were "nationalist" you would change all German names to Italian, since your nation is Italy! — Preceding unsigned comment added by 151.20.0.48 (talkcontribs)
  • Here the IP even falsified a book title, just in order to exchange a German town name with an Italian town name.
Oh my God... Again? This is the 3rd time I repeat! a) It_was_NOT_me. b) I know your edit is correct, I'll repeat, your_edit_is_correct, that's why I didn't revert it, never ever. c) I'm not going to revert correct edits, just wrong ones such as your changing from Merano to Meran. d) Let's hope you won't make me repeat it one more time... — Preceding unsigned comment added by 151.20.0.48 (talkcontribs)
  • Here his edit (wrong name corrected, sic!) introduced a clear anachronism. I explained that on Talk:Silvius Magnago, obviusly whithout a response of the other involved user.
An anachronism? So, if you're right, considering that Italy was born in 1861 and Italian was made the official language in that year, every time an Italian town name appears in an article we must use the name it had in that particular moment (in Latin, in ancient Italian, in the local dialect, in the foreign conquerors' language, etc...). Please... And you're not even honest: you refused also the sentence "...Merano, which was then...named Meran...". — Preceding unsigned comment added by 151.20.0.48 (talkcontribs)

I'm sorry, but the only thing I see here is massive trolling by a user, who even threatened me with "uno stolching perenne, a tempo indeterminato, da parte mia su di te.", that means "an eternal stalking, for an indefinite period of time, from me at your expense". I'd be thankful for a semi-protection of the concerned pages. --Mai-Sachme (talk) 13:17, 28 November 2015 (UTC)

You know what it means, I've told you twice already. It doesn't mean that I'll undo you edits every time you do them. It means that I'll take an eye on you to avoid that you change again to German Italian names which according to consensus have to be Italian in this encyclopedia. I won't do anything different than an administrator who keeps an eye on a known troll. In this case, you're the troll. My edits are correct, maybe not fundamental but correct. And you're the only one behaving nationalistically here, since there's a consensus about Merano which you keep ignoring, pursuing your crusade against the Italic invaders... — Preceding unsigned comment added by 151.20.0.48 (talkcontribs)

This IP's recent IPs:

It does seem to me the IP editor is changing the articles to his/her favoured national version, against the status quo without any argument carrying weight. I take the view that the IP should do something more constructive, and would support semi-protection for the two most affected articles to give the IP editor the opportunity to argue their case if they wish to pursue these changes. -- zzuuzz (talk) 13:46, 28 November 2015 (UTC)

I've already answered in your talk page, zzuuzz, why are you ignoring that?
the IP editor is changing the articles to his/her favoured national version false: it's not "my favourite national version", it's English Wiki consensus version, or else Bozen and Meran wouldn't be redirects, I've never changed and will never change, for example, Waidbruck to Ponte Gardena.
against the status quo without any argument carrying weight false: the status quo is to use the Italian names for Bolzano and Merano, it's Mai-Sachme who's going against status quo and consensus, if you disagree you're free to propose to change them in the related talk pages, if you succeed in that I won't change Bozen/Meran to Bolzano/Merano any more.
the IP should do something more constructive it's your opinion, and I agree: in fact I'm also doing other constructive edits which have nothing to do with South Tyrol, as I've always done, but now I'm also controlling his edits, not to vandalise anything but to prevent him from keeping changing geographical names from consensus version to "deutsch" version.
I'm neither a vandal nor a nationalist, if you consider objectively what happened. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 151.20.0.48 (talkcontribs)
Yes, I am not blocking you for being a nationalist edit warrior, or a vandal. I am not even going to protect the pages. But I would like to strongly discourage you from thinking about "stolching perenne". I find this fiddling from the status quo - the existing text - rather pointless. I am referring to strong policy-based arguments to justify fiddling: Let's take the example of Morano/Meran, "According to the 2011 census, 50.47% of the resident population spoke German". According to the guidelines, this actually suggests the article is titled incorrectly. Perhaps you'd like to argue in favour of renaming it. Also, 5.101.99.101 and by definition 46.252.205.187, is the only reason we've met. I will not believe this is not you. -- zzuuzz (talk) 18:52, 28 November 2015 (UTC)
Thanks for understanding. That "stolchingh perenne" was a hyperbole, I'm not going to waste my life after him, I'll just control every now and then that he won't make uncorrect edits such as the 2 we're talking about. If you want to change the name of the town you can ask for it in the talk page, but as I can see somebody already tried and failed, also because the most common name used in English is Merano; obviously I'm not interested in changing the name of a town that until 1961 had a strong Italian majority. And the only reason we've met is Mai-Sachme: if he didn't report 46.252.205.187 I would have never known you even existed. I don't care if you think I'm 5.101.99.101 too, but I'm not, and I know. 1 last thing: if the three reverts rule isn't applied to Mai-Sachme or to this case for some reasons, we should close this report... — Preceding unsigned comment added by 151.20.2.95 (talk) 19:49, 28 November 2015 (UTC)


Sorry, but I'm sick and tired now of the other user's behaviour. Let's take the article Silvius Magnago as an example. The IPs failed to make any useful contribution there. The user behind the IPs has just one goal: nationalistic fuss about German/Italian town names. What follows, is a complete list of the IPs' edits.

  • 1st edit: useless change from German-Italian town names to Italian-German town names
  • 2nd edit: useless change from German-Italian town names to Italian-German town names
  • 3rd edit: exchange of a German name with an Italian name (and that is an anachronism, as I explained on the talk page)
  • 4th edit: exchange of a German name with an Italian name
  • 5th edit: exchange of a German name with an Italian name
  • 6th edit: exchange of a German name with an Italian name
  • 7th edit: jumbling the German and Italian town names introducing a factually wrong implication (as I explained on the talk page)
  • 8th edit: jumbling the German and Italian town names introducing a factually wrong implication

Sorry, but what the heck? In the meantime I tried to expand the article and added a bibliography. You are welcome to compare [my humble contribution to the article's benefit with the extremely stubborn attitude of the IPs. I'm quite used to revert nationalistic bollocks in the area of South Tyrol (no matter if coming from the German or Italian side), but this doggedness as shown by the IPs is new to me. Given the threats and insults I received, I really think that we are dealing with an obsessive behaviour here. And since the IPs seem to continue their annoying activities in the article Silvius Magnago, I would like to ask again for a semi-protection of the page. --Mai-Sachme (talk) 20:30, 29 November 2015 (UTC)

Well. Let's end this. You have broken the so called three reverts rule. You have reverted 5 time in less than 24 hours. This was the original reason of this topic. You know that I'm just going to prevent you to change Italian names to German and nothing more. Don't try shifting attention to something else honestly risible. And about Merano as I said dozens of times the consensus is to use the most used name in English. Which is Merano. This is the status quo that you're trying to change without even proposing anything in Talk:Merano. You are wrong. Both in your opinion and in the way you've chosen to impose it. We are right. It's not strongly necessary to change every Meran to Merano. But it's not uncorrect. On the contrary changing Merano to Meran is against en.wikipedia consensus. There's no reason your will to call it Meran is more correct than our will to call it Merano. There's no way you're being right in what you do. Just face it.
  • Result: Semiprotected Silvius Magnago and History of South Tyrol two months each. If IP editors have concerns about which names to use in the article they can try to get consensus on the talk page. When editors engage in nationalist edit warring in the South Tyrol it may fall under WP:ARBEE. Note that according to WP:Article titles the criterion is which name is most commonly used in English. The ethnic makeup of the town's population does not decide the issue. EdJohnston (talk) 04:06, 30 November 2015 (UTC)

Comments:
The article on which the edit warring occurred is subject to Wikipedia:General sanctions/Syrian Civil War and Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant. And the user being reported had been placed on notice of the remedies in place. There was a discussion of the issue on the module's talk page (as i linked above) and the reported user knew that if he reverted, he would break 1RR, since he wrote in this discussion: "Please revert them, I cannot without breaking 1RR". However, 12 hours later, he decided to go ahead and edit war by reverting and breaking 1RR. This user has been blocked 4 times already for edit warring on this same module, but he doesn't seem to care as this looks like an WP:SPA whos only objective is to do POV pushing and bias the map. 90.44.195.188 (talk) 10:50, 28 November 2015 (UTC)

Hello. I was hardly edit warring. D'SuperHero made many many changes during the last 48 hours, I was just reverting small pieces that I objected to, one by one in order to put proper edit summaries. Thanks, Biwom (talk) 10:50, 28 November 2015 (UTC)
Maybe WP:Sockpuppet investigations/TekkenJinKazama should be brought to the reviewer's attention, so that he/she does not lose as much time on WP:AGF as I have. Silly me. Thanks, Biwom (talk) 13:57, 28 November 2015 (UTC)
