October 2013[edit]

Your recent editing history at Scott Joplin shows that you are currently engaged in an edit war. 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.

To avoid being blocked, instead of reverting please consider using the article's talk page to work toward making a version that represents consensus among editors. See BRD for how this is done. You can post a request for help at a relevant noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. In some cases, you may wish to request temporary page protection.

This should be discussed on the article's talk page, not a dispute resolution board. Please discuss any changes you wish to make to Scott Joplin on the article's talk page first. Since you are the one who is altering the original content of the article, it is your responsibility to provide some solid proof for why your changes are correct. This is a Wikipedia policy. Also, please revert your current edits on Scott Joplin so that I do not violate the 3 revert rule. Thank you.Hoops gza (talk) 23:53, 28 October 2013 (UTC)

  • I notice that despite warnings on this page, plus discussions on the Scott Joplin page, that you have reverted the recent reversions by Hoops gza. Please stop reverting and discuss your changes on the talk page. Your user page indicates that you are a "grammar nerd" and certainly the Scott Joplin page could benefit from your input as it failed a GAN review because of dodgy grammar back in 2011. Please do become a valued member of the community. Ben (Major Bloodnok) (talk) 15:30, 29 October 2013 (UTC)
