User:A Man In Black reported by User:DHowell (Result:No block)[edit]

Three-revert rule violation on WEAR-TV (edit | talk | history | protect | delete | links | watch | logs | views). A Man In Black (talk · contribs · deleted contribs · logs · edit filter log · block user · block log):

Comments: This is an admin, who should know better, but seems to believe he is exempt from one policy because he is attempting to enforce another. His interpretation of fair use policy is not consensus and has repeatedly been disputed. See, e.g. Wikipedia:Fair use/Historical logos in galleries.

This is copyvio content, not a content dispute. DHowell doesn't feel that it's copyvio, but hasn't yet had any success (after many months) making any impact on policy. In the meantime, policy hasn't changed, and I've had to clean up copyvio non-free images. It's probably my mistake for not just deleting them on sight, but instead leaving them orphaned for people to write encyclopedic commentary. - A Man In Bl♟ck (conspire | past ops) 05:25, 16 March 2007 (UTC)
I agree with AMIB's position -- this is a bad-faith report that should be disregarded. I've witness reporting user Dhowell attempt to misrepresent policy to further his position, and obviously making inappropriate noticeboard complaints. /Blaxthos 22:29, 16 March 2007 (UTC)

Comments

This user did not get a 3RR warning because it is fairly certain that this user already knows about the policy. this posting to Wasted Time R is warning Wasted Time R about 3RR. The posting is by 129.132.239.8 whom is suspected of being CrystalizedAngels. A checkuser has been requested to confirm this.Ttguy 14:13, 19 March 2007 (UTC)

Page is fully protected now. Seems there is no point in blocking CrystalizedAngels at the moment, since blocking the user would just result in a delay of discussion at the talk page. Nishkid64 19:54, 19 March 2007 (UTC)

Possibly using a Sock to bypass the 3RR Greatgallsoffire is a SPA which has only being used for inserting the NPOV tag which is what User:SqueakBox is doing. DXRAW 01:17, 20 March 2007 (UTC)
  • Improperly formatted report - we need original version reverted to, actual revert diffs and diff times. You provide none. If you suspect sockpuppetry you can try WP:RFCU. No block. Crum375 02:20, 20 March 2007 (UTC)

User:El_Cubano reported by User:FeloniousMonk (Result:Warning )[edit]

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

While not particularly complex reverts, these are not purly simple reverts either; each revert was to the same passage and shows the same attempt to remove altogether or substantially weaken or discredit the comments of critics of article's subject.

Comments

El Cubano has been editing since October 2005 and so is aware of 3RR policy.

Four reverts are not within 24 hours of each other, user cautioned to cease edit warring. Seraphimblade Talk to me 05:34, 20 March 2007 (UTC)

  • I fixed the timestamps, as per the diffs linked to. Guettarda 06:05, 20 March 2007 (UTC)

Why just a warning? Guettarda fixed the times and it's clearly a violation. 151.151.73.169 21:47, 20 March 2007 (UTC)

User:69.254.29.248 reported by User:Kntrabssi (Result:Blocked)[edit]

Three-revert rule violation on Leandro Barbosa (edit | talk | history | protect | delete | links | watch | logs | views). 69.254.29.248 (talk · contribs · deleted contribs · logs · edit filter log · block user · block log):

  • Diff of 3RR warning: [6]
Comments

I have tried very hard not to report this user, for his edit warring and for his personal attacks against me, which can be read on my user page. The user even warned me for deleting content on his user page, after I ADDED a response to his reply on my page.

Additional comment — Even though Kntrabssi (talk · contribs · count) attempted to explain why the anon editor's contributions could be construed as non-NPOV, the anon editor continued to revert/re-edit their views into the article. The anon editor also deleted several warnings from their talk page. Hopefully, the {{3RR}} warning was sufficient to dissuade the anon editor from pushing the issue further.

User:Eupator reported by User:Atabek (Result: No violation)[edit]

User has violated the 1RR injunction issued in the ArbCom case [7], attempting to forward the Khachkar destruction article to Khachkar destruction within Nakhichevan twice, reverting to the version by User:Artaxiad, who tried moving the article to Khachkar destruction in Nakhichevan. "Within" and "in" are the same, despite being a crafty method of making different RVs and avoiding injunctions:

Not only that it was done only once.-- Ευπάτωρ Talk!! 18:04, 20 March 2007 (UTC)
  • Comment: Any forwarding is considered a revert, and you had two of those to the article with the same name. Moreover, you also removed the big portion of text without discussion and consensus on the page, and also reverted in one of your edits to MarshalBagramyan's version [8]. Atabek 18:21, 20 March 2007 (UTC)
No it's not, it was moved to something new; hence, not a revert. Second, there was only one move along with one consecutive edit. Where is the second one? If there was a second one than it would have been the first revert which still would not justify this extremely disruptive, desperate and bad faith report.-- Ευπάτωρ Talk!! 18:27, 20 March 2007 (UTC)
Move of the page [9] is your first revert, as you practically reverted it to Artaxiad’s version, [10] and deletion of the section on Armenia is your second rv, as it repeats the same attempt by User:MarshallBagramyan [11] or User:Aivazovsky [12] Grandmaster 19:47, 20 March 2007 (UTC)
Practically is not the same as exactly. I haven't checked what others have moved it to. I know that what I moved to was a brand new name so once again it was no a revert. It was my first edit of the article and cannot be considered a revert, nor was it like anything done before especially your diff. The move and the removal of the section were one after another. It's one, not two.-- Ευπάτωρ Talk!! 20:09, 20 March 2007 (UTC)
  • Two or more consecutive edits are not considered more than one revert for the purposes of assessing 3RR violations. There is no violation here.--Domitius 20:06, 20 March 2007 (UTC)
They both know that very well.-- Ευπάτωρ Talk!! 20:09, 20 March 2007 (UTC)
No violation here. He might have gone against consensus by moving the article, but that is not considered a revert. The second edit is not technically a revert, as I don't see that entire section being added on its own by another editor recently. It just seems like a deletion of material. Nishkid64 20:48, 20 March 2007 (UTC)
He moved the page to Khachkar destruction within Nakhichevan, and it was previously moved to Khachkar destruction in Nakhichevan, so in my opinion it is a revert to the same version. And deletion of a section is also not a first time action, it was deleted before, so it should count as an rv as well. Grandmaster 21:43, 20 March 2007 (UTC)
Your edit summary after the move stated "Do not move until AfD is complete". The AfD was complete when Eupator made the move. Was there some consensus on the talk page about the page title, and did the user know about the page move situation? Nishkid64 21:50, 20 March 2007 (UTC)
There were 2 AfD’s on this article, both resulted with keep. [13] [14] This user took part in both of them. And my edit summary was: “The AfD was to keep the article, not to move it”, because no consensus was reached on AfD. The issue is currently being discussed, so the page should not be moved until a consensus is reached. Grandmaster 22:04, 20 March 2007 (UTC)

User:Akradecki reported by User:Akradecki (Result: No action)[edit]

I'd like to report myself for an inadvertent violation of 3RR, [15] [16] [17] [18]. At issue is an editor who keeps changing the lead paragraph of this article. The text of the lead was decided on by draft/discussion/consensus a while ago. Because of the concerns he's brought up, that consensus is being rediscussed in detail on the talk page. Rather than waiting for consensus to be reached, he keeps adding the material back in (in violation of the earlier consensus), and I've been reverting. My 4th edit missed the 24 hr period by about 3 hours, so I'm in violation, and thought it best to report myself. I have also directly reported this to an admin, at User talk:Chrislk02, and he is currently involved. Akradecki 18:23, 20 March 2007 (UTC)

I have looked at this. The final revert was inadvertantly over the WP:3RR. In this situation, being it was inadvertant, a block is unecessary. Should another admin disagree with me, please feel free to over-turn my decision. -- Chrislk02 (Chris Kreider) 18:25, 20 March 2007 (UTC)
(edit conflict) No action taken. Please read up on the rule, and more importantly focus on the policy behind it, so there are no further problems. Newyorkbrad 18:26, 20 March 2007 (UTC)
In the future, please use the appropriate format for reporting 3RR violations. Nishkid64 20:38, 20 March 2007 (UTC)

User:Lordknowle reported by User:Elonka (Result: no violation / page protected)[edit]

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

Comments
Over the last three weeks, Lordknowle (talk · contribs) has been repeatedly inserting a link to his own website.[19][20][21][22][23][24][25][26][27][28][29][30] Consensus on the talkpage has confirmed that this is inappropriate, but he persists, and is now rapidly reverting other users who attempt to remove the link. A block for violating 3RR is requested. --Elonka 21:24, 20 March 2007 (UTC)
  • The user has not yet violated WP:3RR because there are not yet four reverts within 24 hours. The 1st and 2nd revert link is considered as one revert only, so therefore, there have only been 3 total reverts. Nishkid64 21:30, 20 March 2007 (UTC)
    • For the sake of completeness, this was also reported on WP:ANI (in a request to have LK blocked for several weeks for disruption). As a result of that discussion, the page was protected. >Radiant< 10:00, 21 March 2007 (UTC)

User:Elonka reported by User:Lordknowle (Result: No report)[edit]

Comments
Elonka (talk · contribs) has been posting messages on my Talk page threatening me with suspension over the 3RR issue when she clearly has no authority to do so. She is arbitrarily removing links and edits on the Knights Templar articles and then claiming consensus of the Talk page when none actually exists. The three people who have concurred with her arguments are users who are clearly friends of hers, as they have all contributed to her personal self-glorification Wiki entry, which is my opinion as to what it actually is. She has reverted the link on several occasions now, and claims to have Wiki authority to do so in both her comments and follow-ups to the Talk pages. In addition she has labelled my account with the SPA tag in Talk pages (I've since removed it as defamatory and childish), when I have clearly been contributing over the last 14 months to different articles - this is a clear breach of Wikipedia policy on defamatory SPA tagging. In all, she tries to make out that she is some type of super-user with these constant threats, which I understand is in breach of Wikipedia's rules impersonating Sysops.

A suspension for violating 3RR, SPA and Sysop policy is requested. Lord Knowle 22:29, 20 March 2007 (UTC)

This is the 3RR noticeboard, if you'd like to make a general request for admin intervention, you may post at WP:ANI. Seraphimblade Talk to me 22:41, 20 March 2007 (UTC)

Three-revert rule violation on World War II casualties (edit | talk | history | protect | delete | links | watch | logs | views). Woogie10w (talk · contribs · deleted contribs · logs · edit filter log · block user · block log):

I provide the verifiable sources for the chines casualties,and the User:Woogie10w even didn't want to give a reasonable talk for her or his revert.--Ksyrie 22:59, 20 March 2007 (UTC)

Even if the third edit is a revert (which is questionable), that would only make one edit and three reverts. However, both editors are encouraged to engage in discussion or dispute resolution rather than an edit war. Seraphimblade Talk to me 23:10, 20 March 2007 (UTC)

  • Page has been protected by Shanes (talk · contribs · blocks · protections · deletions · page moves · rights · RfA). No need to block at the moment. Get the dispute resolved at the talk page now, and request unprotection at WP:RFPP once the dispute has been resolved. Nishkid64 23:11, 20 March 2007 (UTC)
    • The third edit is not a revert? I don't see any reason for it not being a revert. See the article history. It looks like four reverts. Nishkid64 23:44, 20 March 2007 (UTC)
      • Am I missing something? The first one looks like just an edit to me, unless there's a previous same version I'm missing, then a revert to that, then another edit (though that could likely be called a partial revert), then another exact revert to it. Seraphimblade Talk to me 23:58, 20 March 2007 (UTC)
        • My mistake, I mistook the first link as a revert, when there was no previous version. However, the third edit looks like a revert, or a partial revert. Nishkid64 00:49, 21 March 2007 (UTC)

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

Here is the block log for User:Smeelgova (now User:Smee) showing the prior blocks. http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Special:Log&type=block&page=User:Smeelgova


These are five (5) diffs showing changes away from the word "states" to "claims" or "asserts" both of which are synonyms. This is a violation of the spirit of the 3RR policy, but not the letter. User:Smee was known as User:Smeelgova until about a month ago and has an exensive 3RR blocking history for edit warring on this article (Landmark Educaiton) and immediately related articles as shown in the block log for User:Smeelgova.

  • This is a non-issue. User:AJackl and I had discussed this on the talk page, and I changed it to what he had requested. After that, I don't believe I had changed it back. If so, it is a miscommunication between myself and AJackl, nothing more, and I will voluntarily change back - I have no problem utilizing the word "states" in that particular section. Smee 03:48, 21 March 2007 (UTC).
    • In fact, you will note that in my last version, DIFF, the word "claims" is not used within that section, but "asserts", which is the same as "states" - I was complying with AJackl's request in that respect. Smee 03:50, 21 March 2007 (UTC).
      • DISAGREE! Both "claims" and "asserts" are statements that cast doubt. "States" is neutral language. This was an intentional effort on your behalf to avoid 3RR. If this was not a 3RR, you could simply leave the language alone without changing five times (5) within 24 hours. You should be held to account for the edit warring. You have done many of the after-the-fact courtesy reverts when other editors take the time to file the 3RR report. Sm1969 03:55, 21 March 2007 (UTC)
  • Here is the DIFF where I was trying to compromise and implement AJackl's suggestion, changing "claims" to "asserts". You will note that my edit summary stated: Charter, change "claims" to "asserts" ... - This was a good faith effort here, well before this 3RR was filed. After that, I did not change it back again, and was not intending to do so. The issue was already over at this point and the conflict with that point had ceased, this was a done deal, I would even have been fine with "states", I had thought that "asserts", was stronger language for AJackl actually, and I was trying to assume good faith here and implement Wikipedia:Writing for the enemy. Smee 03:58, 21 March 2007 (UTC).
    • DISAGREE! Your issue is not just with Ajackl, but all the other editors on this page. "states" is the neutral language of an encyclopedia, but your personal POV insists on changing "states" to "claims" or "asserts" both of which cast doubt. Three of your reversions were after your "good faith" compromise. Sm1969 04:04, 21 March 2007 (UTC)
  • Please stop with the usage of CAPS and the personal attacks and assumptions as to what you think is my "personal POV". That is not appropriate. We are going back and forth here. The fact of the matter is, if others view "asserts" different than "claims", that is a miscommunication, I was actually trying to go with AJackl's intention. If that is viewed differently be him than he could have commented on the talk page as such, and I would have voluntarily changed accordingly. I think the Admins can see from Sm1969's usage of "DISAGREE!", and responding immediately to my posts that this is more of an issue of something other than a simple report. I am going to take this particlular article off of my watchlist in order to avoid conflict with this individual. Smee 04:08, 21 March 2007 (UTC).
    • Done. Off my watchlist. Regardless of what happens here, I am tired of the bull-baiting and attacks, legal threats, and such from this user. I am simply going to try to avoid him for the time being. Thanks. Smee 04:09, 21 March 2007 (UTC).
      • I only have 10 edits so far this year and administrators have specifically disagreed with your assertion that I have used legal threats. Sm1969 04:15, 21 March 2007 (UTC)
  • The user has a long-held grudge against me for some reason, but that is irrelevant. As stated above, I am going to avoid any future conflicts and the article is staying off of my watchlist. 3RR is not meant to be punitive. The issue is over here. Thanks for your time. Smee 04:17, 21 March 2007 (UTC).

This is a second 3RR report on User:Smee. (I only have 10 edits so far this year, but have been watching this page and Smee's conduct.)

  • Please see above. I am done with this. The article is off my watchlist and is staying that way. I am done here, there is no conflict, I will not be editing that article. This is simply an issue of this particular user having it out against me and trying to get me blocked. This is highly inappropriate behaviour, 3RR is not supposed to be meant as punitive, and I am done editing this article. Through. I have had it. Thanks for your time. Smee 04:15, 21 March 2007 (UTC).
    • You are always polite and contrite when you are called on it. We have gone through this cycle numerous times. Sm1969 04:24, 21 March 2007 (UTC)
      • Indeed, as I always try to be most polite, whilst enduring personal attacks from others, and always. In any event, this discussion is pointless now, I am not going to edit that article again, at least, not for a long while. Let us stop going back and forth and see what the Admin has to say about this, and regardless of the outcome, I am taking a good long break from that article. Thanks. Smee 04:35, 21 March 2007 (UTC).
    • This really is not about what you think are personal attacks, but rather about violations of the 3RR policy. Your fingers pushed the keys on four and five separate instances in the last 24 hours reverting the same or substantially the same language. You have done this several times in the past, and usually ask for forgiveness after the fact. It's up to the Admins to enforce the letter and the spirit of the 3RR policy as they have done before you as shown in your previous block log before changing your identity from Smeelgova to Smee. Sm1969 04:50, 21 March 2007 (UTC)
  • As opposed to Sm1969, I am going to avoid further comment here, so as not to take up space on this page. Thank you for your time and please inform me of your decision on my talk page. Regardless of the decision, I will not be editing that particular article anymore. Thank you. Yours, Smee 04:52, 21 March 2007 (UTC).

Article has frequently been spammed with blog content and tabloid-style WP:OR in the past two months by fourteen user/IPs, all but one of them - Chulcoop (talk · contribs) - unregistered. — Athænara 11:44, 21 March 2007 (UTC)

User:DavidYork71 reported by User:Aminz (Result: 24 hours)[edit]

Three-revert rule violation on Islam and slavery (edit | talk | history | protect | delete | links | watch | logs | views).

Note, Aminz changed this diff after DY had responded. Arrow740 06:13, 22 March 2007 (UTC)
The original diff that was reverted was corrected[32]. It is clearly a revert anyways. --Aminz 06:18, 22 March 2007 (UTC)

Here the user self-reverts with the edit summary Possible 3RR self-revert [33].

but later David York makes another revert:

This user inserts OR to the articles. Please see [35],[36], [37], [38] --Aminz 04:56, 22 March 2007 (UTC)
This user and User:Netscott were attempting to find which images were fair use and correctly captioned. Some of this seems like edit-warring, but in fact the "reverts" were responses to the constructive criticism of Netscott, in the form of finding citations, verifying context, etc. They appear to have worked it out, as one can read on Netscott's talk page. Arrow740 05:21, 22 March 2007 (UTC)
Netscott just expressed something to the contrary after seeing this. Arrow740 05:29, 22 March 2007 (UTC)
I asked Netscott to comment here and his reply was this [39]. I could find this diff [40] saying a different thing("The article is so riddled with original research right now (particularly surrounding the images") . --Aminz 05:37, 22 March 2007 (UTC)
Also, please see this diff regarding Arrow's comment :[41] --Aminz 05:48, 22 March 2007 (UTC)
Netscott has his biases: his analysis should not be viewed as objective. Arrow740 06:01, 22 March 2007 (UTC)
The user himself self-reverted saying "Possible 3RR self-revert" and then later made a new revert. It is clear that the user has made more than 3RRs (5 reverts infact). Even the self-revert is first removing "totallydisputed" tag and then adding back the "neutrality" tag. It is a partial self-revert. --Aminz 06:08, 22 March 2007 (UTC)
1st: this is supplying a picture totally different to the one claimed reverted back in by the complainant
2nd: this is supplying the picture with its cite when it was taken out because Netscott said it lacked one (see his edit summary)
3rd: this is supplying the picture with an altered caption in response to captioning complaint by Netscott who had complained
4th: this is supplying a picture with altered captioning and additional citing in response to complaint by Netscott about the caption not establishing relevance and not reliably source. The source provided is the British Naval Museum.
5th: this is removing the dispute tag after dealing with the substance of the dispute (picture sourcing and captioning)
then Netscott claims 3RR on my talk page so my response is to resupply the POV dispute tag
6th: this is commenting out the introduction and drafting my own version, with invitation to comment on talk. The reason for this is recent GA-review (see talk) strongly criticising the lead the lead and offering it as a reason for the article to fail GA.
In short, what's alleged as reverts are supplying information with revisions in response to other editor's specific complaints (sourcing, captioning) in justification of their removal action.
I can't write more than this because I have to go soon.DavidYork71 06:04, 22 March 2007 (UTC)
There are various reasons for the images being OR [42], [43].--Aminz 06:26, 22 March 2007 (UTC)
  • DavidYork has been found persistently undoing the edits of others and engaging in unencyclopedic tendentious editing. he had previously violated 3RR[44], though i offered him to self revert, which he failed to fully comply with. ITAQALLAH 07:13, 22 March 2007 (UTC)
  • Itaqallah was kind enough to fully explain the 3RR at that time. Prior to that, DY had thought it forbade doing the same revert 4 times. Arrow740 09:00, 22 March 2007 (UTC)

  • The user has been informed of the 3RR rule right after his 3rd revert. Instead, he reverted again with taunts in edit summaries. Upon being informed of this 3RR report, he has reverted it two more times. --Ragib 07:24, 22 March 2007 (UTC)

Sorted Astrotrain 16:34, 22 March 2007 (UTC)
Frivolus report, I haven't broken 3RR. First two reverts were reverting vandalism, including one instance where Astrotrain vandalised the article. One Night In Hackney303 16:34, 22 March 2007 (UTC)
The edit you refer was not simple vandalism- and I didn't vandalise the article. Astrotrain 16:43, 22 March 2007 (UTC)

As the first edit was from an anonymous editor with no previous contributions, I will presume that its misidentification as vandalism was in good faith. Disagreeable edits are not vandalism, please use more caution in the future. If the two of you cannot agree, please seek dispute resolution rather than edit warring. Seraphimblade Talk to me 16:45, 22 March 2007 (UTC)

Thanks, but to be fair, it wasn't misidentification. The IP editor changed a sourced claim of non-sectarian to sectarian, which falls under the sneaky vandalism criterion in my opinion. One Night In Hackney303 16:48, 22 March 2007 (UTC)

User:Corticopia reported by User:Serg!oo (Result: user warned)[edit]

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

(From 1st to 3rd: 12 hours)

  • ¡Good days! I am writing to report to report this user because s/he is completely intransigent and because his/her unjustified rv's criteria of info with references.

Despite his/her contributions shows a extese list of similar actuations I am telling, now I refer concretly the user's actuation in the article of continent, where s/he constantly reverts the map of the traditional POV and its references. In addition, in every rv s/he restaure the word "scattered", too.

I hope would not matter I am not an habitual contributor of en:.
Yours faithfully

  • The user has now been warned per 3RR not to let this happen again. In the future, warn the user for 3RR violations. Also, it seems to me that there are only 3 reverts, not four. Nishkid64 00:27, 23 March 2007 (UTC)
Noted. The reporter added a redundant, incorrect, partial map to that article, and edit summaries removing it clearly justified why it was redundant with the content already in that article. Garbage in, garbage out. And as I have not violated 3RR in this instance, this report is rather moot and whiny. Corticopia 14:49, 23 March 2007 (UTC)
