G'day. If you have got something to say, pull up a pew and say it (but please follow the rules). There are three rules here:

  1. If you post on this page, I will (usually) reply on this page, in order to stop conversations from becoming fragmented;
  2. If you are the type of editor that rarely contributes in article space, one that prefers to moan endlessly about mouseshit on article talk pages without actually editing those articles using reliable sources, you will soon find that I am not interested in encouraging what I consider to be disruptive behaviour. If I don't respond to you, and you are wondering if this might be what I think about your approach to editing, don't be surprised if I refuse to engage in discussion with you; and
  3. If you are an editor that has posted here and had your post deleted without a response, or with an edit summary telling you to go away, don't post here again. If you have a complaint against me, there are places on WP to do that, this is not one of them. If this is you, repeated postings will result in a complaint by me against you for wikihounding. If you are intent on demonstrating that you are completely delusional, especially in areas covered by Arbitration Committee rulings, then you may find that you reap the whirlwind.

This is NOT the place to ignore all rules...

Sorry for taking too long to respond on the GAN nomination page. I was away from town for a few days without internet access. I'll get to it in the next day or two.--Saxum (talk) 18:25, 12 November 2014 (UTC)

No worries, if you could just address the two major issues, I'll finish up the review. Regards, Peacemaker67 (crack... thump) 07:46, 14 November 2014 (UTC)

Request reason:

I request a review of this block. I fully accept that several of my edits regarding the ENGVAR issue on Tomb Raider contained unacceptable personal attacks on one or more IP editors, for which I unreservedly apologise to the IP/s and the community in general. I would apologise directly to the IP concerned, but given they appear to be dynamic, that seems rather pointless. I undertake not to edit the Tomb Raider article in future, and to follow WP policy regarding edit warring, which I submit means that the block is no longer necessary. I also draw the reviewing admins attention to my block history, one block in nearly three years (over 30,000 edits) of productive contributions, and that was in the early days when I was still getting used to WP policies. I submit that, given my unreserved apology and commitment to change the demonstrated behaviour, this block is effectively punitive rather than preventative. If the reviewing admin believes that some block remains necessary, I submit that the length of the block is excessive in the circumstances, considering the severity of the behaviour and my lack of past history of the behaviour in question. Sincerely, Peacemaker67 (crack... thump) 00:04, 16 November 2014 (UTC)

Accept reason:

I'm extending you good faith and accepting your apology as sincere. However, any future personal attacks may be met with a block longer than a week. Bbb23 (talk) 15:45, 16 November 2014 (UTC)

Unblocking administrator: Please check for active autoblocks on this user after accepting the unblock request.
fair enough. And thanks. Peacemaker67 (crack... thump) 02:28, 17 November 2014 (UTC)

Edit warring[edit]

Stop icon

Your recent editing history at Tomb Raider shows that you are currently engaged in an edit war. To resolve the content dispute, please do not revert or change the edits of others when you get reverted. Instead of reverting, please use the article's talk page to work toward making a version that represents consensus among editors. The best practice at this stage is to discuss, not edit-war. See BRD for how this is done. If discussions reach an impasse, you can then post a request for help at a relevant noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. In some cases, you may wish to request temporary page protection.

Being involved in an edit war can result in your being blocked from editing—especially if you violate the three-revert rule, which states that an editor must not perform more than three reverts on a single page within a 24-hour period. Undoing another editor's work—whether in whole or in part, whether involving the same or different material each time—counts as a revert. Also keep in mind that while violating the three-revert rule often leads to a block, you can still be blocked for edit warring—even if you don't violate the three-revert rule—should your behavior indicate that you intend to continue reverting repeatedly.

Fascism's European Empire: Italian Occupation during the Second World War[edit]

G'day Peacemaker!

Would you happen to have access to a copy of Fascism's European Empire: Italian Occupation during the Second World War by Davide Rodogno? Reason I ask is there is a table at the back (Table 4, p419) that covers the municipalities in Dalmatia. As part of my update to the maps of NDH I am creating a map of The Governate of Dalmatia. You can see half the table in the preview on Amazon but not the whole of it. Cheers mate! XrysD (talk) 19:07, 19 November 2014 (UTC)

I don't have a copy, but I can access both pages on Google Books. Try that, if you can't, I'll see if I can screenshot it for you. Cheers, Peacemaker67 (crack... thump) 03:32, 20 November 2014 (UTC)
Well that is odd! At home I couldn't access that page on Google Books, but here on a different machine I can! I think it must store somewhere how many pages you have accessed on a particular machine and then limit based on that. Oh well, thanks for the help! XrysD (talk) 11:18, 20 November 2014 (UTC)
Let me know if I can help, I've screenshot what you need. Cheers, Peacemaker67 (crack... thump) 11:23, 20 November 2014 (UTC)
