Duran Duran[edit]

That editing is a wp:content dispute, not wp:vandalism even though it removed sources. As it is not vandalism, there is a "Bright Line" limit of three reversions per 24 hours (in this case). See wp:Edit warring and wp:3RR. Please stop reverting the page now. Continuing to do so may result in a wp:block Thank you Jim1138 (talk) 22:18, 10 April 2014 (UTC)

I seem to be spending way too much time undoing genre warriors' messes. Duran Duran included. Funny thing is: I have no sense of genres other than "I like" and "I don't like". Would you know of any other source that opines on Duran Duran's genre? Allmusic is there, but a couple more would help settle the current situation. Suggestion: avoid using "vandal"; it seems to activate many people. Thanks! Jim1138 (talk) 22:30, 10 April 2014 (UTC)

You have been blocked temporarily from editing for edit warring. Once the block has expired, you are welcome to make useful contributions. If you think there are good reasons why you should be unblocked, you may appeal this block by adding the following text below this notice: {{unblock|reason=Your reason here ~~~~}}. However, you should read the guide to appealing blocks first.

During a dispute, you should first try to discuss controversial changes and seek consensus. If that proves unsuccessful, you are encouraged to seek dispute resolution, and in some cases it may be appropriate to request page protection.  DP 00:04, 11 April 2014 (UTC)
