American politics 2

User was warned several times, including a direct warning on the talk page of the article during a 6 hour full protection which had been placed to allow the user time to fully review the restrictions. As soon as the page protection was lifted, they continued to edit-war... over a typo. User claimed it was vandalism, typos are not vandalism by any means and the user who instated the edit has been trusted with the rollback right. That user was also warned but is not named here as the action was not considered to require AE action at this time. Coffee // have a ☕️ // beans // 16:41, 16 January 2018 (UTC)

  • The following list of articles have talk page sanctions templates and edit notices with the 1RR and Consensus-required restrictions, but I could not find corresponding entries in this log (searched back to 2015). I am assuming the administrators who placed the sanctions and created the edit notice templates simply forgot to make a log entry here. (Easy to forget, done it myself.) I am linking the pages here for reference, along with the name of the admin who created the edit notice.
~Awilley (talk) 17:13, 18 November 2018 (UTC)
~Awilley (talk) 01:40, 16 December 2018 (UTC)
  • Discretionary sanctions (1RR and Consensus Required) are removed from the following 26 pages. Sanctions were originally placed by User:Coffee (now retired). These pages for the most part have low edit volume and no recent disputes.
Note that this is allowed per Special:Permalink/873620431#Amendment to the standard provision for appeals and modifications ~Awilley (talk) 20:50, 16 December 2018 (UTC)
  • Ryan Zinke is placed under 1RR and consensus required. TonyBallioni (talk) 18:16, 19 December 2018 (UTC)
  • Discretionary sanctions have been lightened on 53 articles originally sanctioned by User:Coffee. The rule known as "Consensus required" has been replaced by an original rule called "Enforced BRD". The current text of the new rule is as follows: Enforced BRD: If an edit you make is challenged by reversion you must discuss the issue on the article talk page and wait 24 hours (from the time of the original edit) before reinstating your edit. Partial reverts/reinstatements that reasonably address objections of other editors are preferable to wholesale reverts." This sanction is in addition to the WP:1RR already in place on the articles. Articles affected by this change are:
Note that because this is a new sanction that has never been used before I will be closely monitoring the above articles and will modify/remove the sanction or replace consensus required to articles if I see that things aren't working. ~Awilley (talk) 02:05, 27 December 2018 (UTC)

Sources without recent consensus must be presented for review first. If the user intends to work on the draft User:Colonel Warden/List of Indian castes, which has been languishing for five years, that work is to be exempted from the restrictions mentioned, i.e. Andrew Davidson is allowed while it's still in userspace to offer weaker comments and sources there, provided this work gradually leads up to acceptable quality and sourcing, before it's offered for mainspace.
