Welcome to the edit warring noticeboard
This page is for reporting active edit warriors and recent violations of the three-revert rule. Sections older than 48 hours are archived by Lowercase sigmabot III.
Shortcuts:
You must notify any user you report.
You may use {{subst:an3-notice}} to do so.

Additional notes: Feed-icon.svg You can subscribe to a web feed of this page in either RSS or Atom format.
  • When reporting a user here, your own behavior will also be scrutinized. Be sure you understand WP:REVERT and the definitions below first.
  • Possible alternatives to filing here are dispute resolution, or a request for page protection.
  • WP:1RR violations may also be brought here. Your report should include two reverts that occurred within a 24-hour period, and a link to where the 1RR restriction was imposed.

Definition of edit warring
Edit warring is a behavior, typically exemplified by the use of repeated edits to "win" a content dispute. It is different than a bold, revert, discuss (BRD) cycle. Reverting vandalism and banned users is not edit warring; at the same time, content disputes, even egregious point of view edits and other good-faith changes do not constitute vandalism. Administrators often must make a judgment call to identify edit warring when cooling disputes. Administrators currently use several measures to determine if a user is edit warring.
Definition of the three-revert rule (3RR)
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. Violations of the this rule normally attract blocks of at least 24 hours. Any appearance of gaming the system by reverting a fourth time just outside the 24-hour slot is likely to be treated as a 3RR violation. See here for exemptions.

Comments:
The user was just created and its only activity is the removal of sourced text from two articles.
The arguments from the revert summaries are on the level of "I don't like it." There was no attempt to initiate any discussion.
I warned MiGR25 about 3RR and suggested to start a discussion before reverting.[11] MiGR25's response was to copy and paste my warning word for word on my talk page (not only the template, but the comments I added after).[12]
The use of links to wiki policies in revert summaries indicates that this is not a genuinely new user who is not aware of the rules.
So the user is highly disruptive and it looks like someone created a SPA to remove specific text from the two articles. -YMB29 (talk) 18:10, 22 December 2014 (UTC)

"There was no attempt to initiate any discussion"
There was a dissucsion:Talk:Battle_of_Berlin#Need_to_obtain_actual_consensus_for_controversial_edits yet, you still continuing to widespreed the contested source to the webpages: Soviet_war_crimes, Rape_during_the_occupation_of_Germany; Berlin:_The_Downfall_1945 without any acknowledge to the consensus of an WP:NPOV just because (you) I don't like it
  • YMB29, please stop bickering about process. You have been edit-warring to insert your preferred text but it is disputed by every other editor who has commented or acted to revert it. You have no consensus to make the changes you want to make. Binksternet (talk) 18:24, 19 January 2014 (UTC)

  • [Y]ou have implied Beevor is the only one by your edit. I have stated valid reasons as to the problems as has PBS; it appears it is you YMB29 who "don't like it." Kierzek (talk) 18:54, 17 January 2014 (UTC)

  • I am categorically opposed to statements implying that mass rape did not happen in Berlin. A ten-minute search on Google Scholar will show multiple independent historians reporting that Red Army forces committed mass rapes. The scale of the rapes is up for contention, using scholarly or academically sound sources, but YMB29, you are warned (a) not to imply that these rapes did not take place, and (b) not to edit war. I encourage anyone to report instances of WP:3RR to me. Buckshot06 (talk) 20:15, 19 January 2014 (UTC) (User:Buckshot06)

So MONTHS LATER when other editors are tired of your contentious, tendentious editing approach and take a break, that doesn’t mean you’ve suddenly “won.” Even after another editor who is also an admin. told you to disengage, you’re still at it using the same tired m.o.
It’s really time to add a few additional strings to the instrument you’re playing. And a good way would be to familiarize yourself with the WP policies that have been cited to you seemingly ad infinitum to no effect. "Outlasting" other editors who tire of your behavior does not mean you’ve suddenly arrived at consensus. On the contrary. Another suggestion would be to read Wikipedia:Tendentious editing, an IMO excellent essay that, although it is not black-letter WP policy, has a lot of valuable info.
MiGR25 (talk) 20:37, 22 December 2014 (UTC)
Digging up an old discussion (a lot has changed since) from another article, where you did not even participate, does not count as an attempt at discussion on your part.
For a completely new user, you sure seem to know a lot about my history... -YMB29 (talk) 21:06, 22 December 2014 (UTC)
The above is also mostly a copy-paste from a post on a talk page made in May.[13] -YMB29 (talk) 15:18, 23 December 2014 (UTC)
  • This report is ironic given YMB29 (talk · contribs) own propensity in engaging in slow burn edit wars to push dubious viewpoints while attempting to exhaust opponents with long intractable discussion on the article talk pages. For example, recently in the article Winter War (with discussion on Talk:Winter_War#Changes_to_intro):

Seems WP:Boomerang would apply here. --Nug (talk) 21:38, 22 December 2014 (UTC)
You are trying to switch attention from the issue here. What is wrong with my reverts above?
Are you wikistalking me? How do you explain your sudden interest in the Winter War article[19]?
You also followed MiGR25's reverts and made a similar revert to his in the Berlin: The Downfall 1945 article (using a similar revert summary)[20] even before MiGR25 got to the page. This leads me to think that you are working together with him/her or MiGR25 is your SPA and you signed into the wrong username to make that revert...
How am I pushing "dubious" viewpoints if the other users come in and revert well sourced text that has been in the articles for a long time? WP:BRD applies there.
The Winter War article had the same problem with a user reverting existing text that he did not like. However, he stopped reverting and decided to discuss. -YMB29 (talk) 22:04, 22 December 2014 (UTC)
Yes, extremely dubious, the source you are pushing from a Russian government website claims only 72 German women were raped in total by Soviet forces in the entire campaign to conquer Germany in 1945, that's right, seventy two. Editors strongly objected back in May, just because you were able to sneak it into other articles doesn't mean the consensus against it has changed. --Nug (talk) 06:15, 23 December 2014 (UTC)
Sneak it in? You and others have edited the articles many times since. Users have even reworded that specific text. If something was wrong with the source, it would have been reverted by now and not by this "new" user. So are you still going to claim that you only noticed this text now, when this SPA started reverting it?
The source does not claim that "only 72 German women were raped in total." This is not mentioned in the articles, so you are just repeating MiGR25's dubious statement from a revert summary.
Anyway, you are simply trying to turn this into a content dispute and divert attention from the actions of this "new" user, whom you support. I hope that admins will note this. -YMB29 (talk) 06:37, 23 December 2014 (UTC)
The source you claim is reliable [21] states:
"Я привожу цифры, характеризующие это положение по 7 армиям нашего фронта: общее количество бесчинств со стороны военнослужащих в отношении местного населения, зафиксированных по этим 7 армиям, 124, из них: изнасилований немецких женщин – 72, грабежей -38, убийств – 3, прочих незаконных действий – 11»"
which translates to:
"I quote figures on this position for seven armies of our front: the total number of atrocities committed by the military against the local population, recorded by these 7 armies, 124 of them: rape of German women - 72, 38 robberies, murders - 3, other illegal activities - 11."
Such a bogus claim calls into question the general reliability of the source. --Nug (talk) 08:31, 23 December 2014 (UTC)
The only thing bogus about that is your interpretation. She is talking about documented cases only for the 1st Belorussian Front in a two week span in Berlin.
A historian can't cite documents? Again, where were you before with your criticism? You need to stop trolling. This is off topic. -YMB29 (talk) 14:49, 23 December 2014 (UTC)
You are welcome to belive whatever is on your distorted mind, but keep any false accusation and personal attacks WP:NPA out of the disscusion. I'm neither an alt account, nor an advanced wikiuser and definitely not a SPA. Anyone with a objective and impartially WP:NPV would acknowledge the consensus how biased and one sided Yelena Senyavskaya scathing hypothesis is. Starting with the first source give at Battle_of_Berlin and the disscuion Talk:Battle_of_Berlin#Need_to_obtain_actual_consensus_for_controversial_edits where She not only criticise Beevor, Bellamy and Grossmann studies, but giving dubious remarks. First source: The Red Army "Rape of Germany" was Invented by Goebbels I want to qoute same figure as you: "the total number of atrocities committed by the military against the local population, recorded by these 7 armies, 124 of them: rape of German women - 72, 38 robberies, murders - 3, other illegal activities - 11" and giving following date: from 22 April to 5 May 1945.
During the last days of the downfall and the weeks after, around 2,5 Million Red Army Soldiers and Personell where involved in the occupation of Berlin.[1] How you can you receive an objective and unbiased analysis by examining solely 7 armies? For example, the 2nd Belorussian front, had 8 Armies under command filded around 319'000 mens[2], and a army per se, is given as a troop strenght of 50'000. Also, the same source indicates, that the approx. number of 2 million of all the raped womans during the whole conquer of Germany are just lies and invented by the Reichspropagandaminister Joseph Goebbels. The other source of Yelena Senyavskaya is not any better in the case, even when it consider a more analytical investigation: The Red Army in Europe in 1945 in the Context of Information War
You also contravened against the WP:3RR here: Berlin: The Downfall 1945: Revision history. Looks like a WP:BOOMERANG MiGR25 (talk) 17:08, 23 December 2014 (UTC)
If you don't agree with a source, use the talk page. There is no excuse for just reverting text you don't agree with.
As for your claim that you are not someone's alternate account, your actions speak for themselves. -YMB29 (talk) 17:28, 23 December 2014 (UTC)
Comment to YMB29:
"If you don't agree with a source, use the talk page. There is no excuse for just reverting text you don't agree with." Listen, there was already a discussion ongoing on the talk page of Battle of Berlin with the acknowledged consensus by multiple User, except you, that the cited source of Yelena Senyavskaya, is heavy biased. Yet, months after a fanatical tug of war, you decided to hoodwink the disscusion and to widespred the same contested source to the following webpages: 1 ; 2 ; 3 ; 4 This can be verified by reviewing your contributions. That's surely not in the sense of the Wiki netiquette of co-educational behavior.
Its tremendous to demand a new Talk-Page for each wikipage I numerated above, just because you did not like how the disscusion turned out for you. Yes, I did removed the content of the following pages: 1 ; 2 but I did not initiate the revert warring. It was you, because you dont like the removal of the contested scoure, even it was considered as heavy biased. MiGR25 (talk) 20:02, 23 December 2014 (UTC)
You started reverting just after registering and you accuse me of edit warring...
And again, for a new user you are too well aware of my editing history. -YMB29 (talk) 20:14, 23 December 2014 (UTC)

Once again, this is not about content dispute, but edit warring and disruptive behavior by a user who just recently registered. MiGR25 and Nug are trying to switch the topic to confuse others. -YMB29 (talk) 17:34, 23 December 2014 (UTC)

The discussion was already held at Talk:Battle_of_Berlin#Need_to_obtain_actual_consensus_for_controversial_edits and Paavo273 (talk · contribs) and PBS (talk · contribs) opposed your dubious source at the time, but you still persisted in spraying your text across multiple articles. Nothing has changed, MiGR25 and I also oppose it today, that's four editors opposing your controversial text, but you are continuing your slow burn edit war even while this case is open here [22], [23]. --Nug (talk) 19:45, 23 December 2014 (UTC)
How are discussions back from May relevant? A lot has changed since. The source was used in multiple articles since and has been there for months with other users modifying the text cited to it. If you want to change something the burden is now on you, see WP:BRD.
Again, there are a lot of questions about your involvement here. Why did you all of a sudden wake up to complain about the source now? Why did you follow me to the Winter War article? Why did you make that revert following MiGR25's lead [24]? Is MiGR25 your SPA? -YMB29 (talk) 20:04, 23 December 2014 (UTC)
Rather than abusing this board to get the upper hand in a content dispute and WP:PA claims that people are either stalking you or are some kind of SPA, perhaps you could accept that your controversial edits that give WP:UNDUE weight to a minority opinion are opposed by many editors and cease and desist in attempting to sneak it under the radar into every article tangentially associated with the topic of the rape of German women. That would help. --Nug (talk) 20:36, 23 December 2014 (UTC)
It would help if you don't try to remove valid text you simply don't like because of your specific POV. Colluding with a random "new" user (who you know is not behaving in a correct wiki way) to achieve this is especially low on your part.
The text and the source is in the articles. The view is significant, not a fringe one that can be excluded. You don't like it and want to remove it? Use the talk pages and go through dispute resolution. -YMB29 (talk) 20:47, 23 December 2014 (UTC)
"And again, for a new user you are too well aware of my editing history." You can't be serious, any User who is willing to spend time and revewing your and the contributions made at those site: 1 ; 2 ; 3 ; 4 can see, that you hoodwink the previous disscusion to widespread the contested hypothesis on these sites. My removal of the contested content is legitimate, you still dont accept the outcome of the disscusion which why you have reverted my removals - which started the edit warring. MiGR25 (talk) 20:48, 23 December 2014 (UTC)
You are still referring to an outdated discussion from May? We are not even talking about the Battle of Berlin article here. The dispute there was mostly about the wording, not that the source does not belong in the article.
Ok, so I guess you spent a long time reviewing my contributions for fun and then decided to register to revert some of them... -YMB29 (talk) 20:55, 23 December 2014 (UTC)
What ever consensus you imagined you had back in May clearly didn't exist then. Please accept that your edit which give way to much weight to a minority viewpoint has no consensus. --Nug (talk) 06:37, 24 December 2014 (UTC)
Please understand that you can't backtrack and claim that the edits I made half a year ago don't have consensus. The source and the text associated with it is present in all the mentioned articles, and no one was against it until MiGR25 started his reverting. I think you need to read WP:CONACHIEVE carefully to understand how consensus is achieved. -YMB29 (talk) 06:52, 24 December 2014 (UTC)

Comments: This user operates a single purpose account dedicated to building credibility for the "Islamic State" and its structure and leadership. Wikipedia editors have widely rejected calling the group a state, or using "Islamic State", "Caliph" and "Caliphate" without qualification, but this editor refuses to follow this consensus. The consensus is reflected in the naming of all major ISIL articles and many talk discussions. It is reflected in the name of the Active Community Sanctions as well.

I'm going to close this since nobody wants this shit on Christmas eve. Walter, you were wrong, and I will revert, since the IP gave a perfectly valid explanation and your edit summary, "revert unexplained removal of content", was thus completely incorrect. So, on the one hand, I will revert you, and on the other I will not block you so you can take the matter up on the talk page, if you feel thusly inclined. Merry Christmas to all.

Comments:

User is exhibiting issues with WP:AGF and WP:OWN, taking the reversions personally, and not listening to any explanations for the reversions. Multiple editors have tried explain on the discussion page why they did the edits they did. His behaviour so far has been to ignore everyone and keep on going. He has also narrowly avoided the 3 revert rule multiple times (which is considered gaming the system per WP:EDITWARRING). He's also been editing out other sourced material.

EDIT: While consulting the User's history I discovered he also permanently hogs and reverts on the same articles. In multiple instances he inexplicably removes sourced material.—Mentoroso (talk) 01:52, 25 December 2014 (UTC)

Please don't list edits that are consecutive.--Bbb23 (talk) 05:58, 25 December 2014 (UTC)
User reverted my edit and told me to read the sources. Reading user's sources, I found those sources tell quite the opposite of what user writes in article. When I told them so the user accused me of harassment.
Unlike user I linked sources that do not contradict my edits but support them. Then an IP reverted my edits, called them "unsourced" and "vandalism".
On the talk page the user contradicts themselves and when being told so they accuse others of misinforming.

What the user does not say is that consensus had been achieved among 3 editors that we would make Kyrgyzstan (country in question) an "acceding member". Support for this by everyone but Knisfo had been achieved. He instead decided to vandalize and revert every possible edit to render the article incapable of any improvement—Mentoroso (talk) 13:12, 25 December 2014 (UTC)
  • Result: Article protected three days. More than one person seems to be edit warring. Why not get an agreement on the talk page? EdJohnston (talk) 16:27, 25 December 2014 (UTC)
An agreement was achieved on the talk page. That the country in question would be considered an acceding state. However Knisfo keeps reverting edits. Also a very highly reliable source, the Financial Times, recently stated that the country IS a member now although its treaty comes fully into force in May. [43]. I still think Knisfo's history of edit warring needs to be considered as he has not been held accountable for any of it.—Mentoroso (talk) 17:07, 25 December 2014 (UTC)

Several IPs who may or may not be the same user keep on reverting two sections of the article: One is about what triggered the protests (it eventually turned out different sources actually make different claims about this), the other is a sentence about counterprotests.

User is displaying issues with WP:AGF and pedantry, making draconian reversions, and not listening to any reasoning or explanations for the reversions. I have tried patiently to explain things, but he clearly has no interest in cooperation or collaboration and, keeps deleting statements that are obvious reasoning, while he refers to WP:OR, without understanding that WP allows deductive reasoning within an article such as stating the obvious and, that reliable sources were provided directly supporting the material being presented according to WP:OR, so there is no original research, and what the sources implied was explained using basic logic and common sense and, not by combining material from multiple sources to reach or imply a conclusion according to WP:ORIGINALSYN, so there is no synthesis of published material as he accuses me of. The point is that there is no need to verify statements that are patently obvious, as explained here. Thank you 98.217.155.45 (talk) 06:31, 26 December 2014 (UTC)

Comments:
This user operates a single purpose account focusing on historical subject matter to contrive an All-Russian nation rendering of Eastern Slavic history. The user has broken the 3 Revert Rule immediately after his previous block (regarding the same article) expired.

Editor refuses to accept the consensus at the talk page. Multiple users, including myself, have patiently reasoned with him on the talk page for days. Discussion there falls on deaf ears, as he ignores the sources agreed upon by the consensus, reverting them to his own. The sources have been continuously refuted, which he as cherry picked to follow his WP:POV. Several of his sources actually confirm the majority consensus. Ignores WP:MOS for the WP:Lede. The user has been warned routinely on the article talk page, edit summarizes, as well as his user talk page.--BoguSlav 22:31, 26 December 2014 (UTC)

Im not sure why, but this user seems to be making it his/her business to revert all my edits. And for tiny little reasons too. I feel that my edits are constructive edits, yet this person seems to think that destroying other peoples work is the best way for him to deal with things.

Adlhgeo1990 (talk) 02:32, 27 December 2014 (UTC)

Adlhgeo1990, lacks understanding of WP:BLP policy about adding contentious material. What this User has been adding here[71][72][73][74] (the first instance is I believe when not logged in) is their interpretation of raw source material. It is not stated explicitly in the cited reference. If my interpretation is wrong, I am more than willing to apologize, but given that it involves a BLP article, I was erring on the side of caution and on behalf of the site and the subject. I am claiming a 3RR BLP exception. --Scalhotrod (Talk) ☮ღ☺ 02:38, 27 December 2014 (UTC)
  • May I just point out that, at first blush, this seems like the pot calling the kettle black? Your user history shows that your very first edit was to revert Scalhotrod. In fact, of your 9 edits, 44% of them have been to revert Scalhotrod. Can you say that 44% of Scalhotrod's edits have been to revert you? I think not. Jsharpminor (talk) 02:40, 27 December 2014 (UTC)

The relevant policies here, and I would strongly suggest both parties review them, can be found here: WP:PS, WP:BLPPRIMARY Jsharpminor (talk) 02:54, 27 December 2014 (UTC)

The actual relevant question here is this: is Adlhgeo drawing his own conclusions? It's a fact that these emails exist, and have been credited to Evan Spiegel. The only remaining question is if Adlhgeo is doing OR by stating succinctly what is contained in them. I tend to think that, upon reviewing the content and comparing it with PS and BLPPRIMARY, it's probably a tough call. Even so, Adlhgeo, there is no cause to continually restore this material time and again. Take it to the talk page, and no, edit summaries don't count as talk pages. Jsharpminor (talk) 03:00, 27 December 2014 (UTC)

Jsharpminor, I appreciate your comments and analysis. What I was going by is the usage of "contentious" used in WP:BLP. Its bad enough that there is a "Controversy" section in the subject's article, but I've seen far lesser claims not only deleted, but blocks handed out for their repeated addition when the source does not explicitly or directly support a claim. This is far from an instance of Wikipedia:You don't need to cite that the sky is blue. --Scalhotrod (Talk) ☮ღ☺ 03:17, 27 December 2014 (UTC)
Scalhotrod: Indeed. Jsharpminor (talk) 03:21, 27 December 2014 (UTC)
  • Adlhgeo1990, you are Pictogram voting wait.svg Warned that if you violate WP:BLP in any article in the future, you risk being blocked without notice. Scalhotrod is correct in their assessment that you are interpreting primary sources (the e-mails) and then characterizing them. This is impermissible, particularly in an article about a living person. I might add that it doesn't help that the section is sourced to a blog in the first instance. @Scalhotrod, in the future, it is best to claim the BLP exemption in your edit summaries when you get into this kind of battle.--Bbb23 (talk) 06:12, 27 December 2014 (UTC)
Thank you for your assistance and time, and sorry to have wasted everyone's time here. The BLP exemption was only added by the user after he was busy trying to figure out a way to avoid being blocked. Parts of the article regarding the blog were already there and sourced as such, so I simply expanded by informing people as to the contents of the email without them needing to read the entire article. Best regards to everyone. Adlhgeo1990 (talk) 07:17, 27 December 2014 (UTC)

This report is merely to supplement the report above on the same user re the article Cossack Hetmanate. Jsharpminor (talk) 03:37, 27 December 2014 (UTC)

Comments:


This is a clear case when one editor adds controversial content, is opposed by editors, and then with a help of a friend edit-wars intensively in order to win the edit. The edit summary directing opposing editors like myself to the talk-page is clearly provocative as per BRD he is the one that added content and against any consensus is edit-warring to keep it in the article. I know he didn't made 4 reverts in less than 24 hours but it is not a new editor, and he is well aware of the rules, and he just abuses the revert button. I already saw that in that same article they bullied one senior editor, and I decided to intervene and they just keep on pushing the revert button, so I am asking here please here to block the user in order to show him that such behavior is not tolerated here. FkpCascais (talk) 05:11, 27 December 2014 (UTC)

Please note that the user needs to make "more than three reverts within a 24 hour period", meaning 4 or more edits....did the user only make three edits? Adlhgeo1990 (talk) 05:23, 27 December 2014 (UTC)
@Adlhgeo1990 - That's not necessarily true. 3RR is a bright-line rule. It's like a barrier that's a few meters down a forbidden path. You don't have to break through the barrier to be on the path, but it's clear that if you have, you're indisputably where you should not be. The correct procedure is bold, revert, discuss. You boldly make an edit, and when someone reverts your edit you don't revert it back — you go to the talk page. Jsharpminor (talk) 06:24, 27 December 2014 (UTC)
Pincrete is repeatedly adding synthesized material, stating that "positive responses to the film have largely come from Serbian sources," and that "other reviews have largely been negative." Jsharpminor (talk) 06:09, 27 December 2014 (UTC)
I've dropped an "official" DS warning ({{alert}}) on a few talk pages just in case they didn't get the memo the first time around (also because it adds an edit-filter tag so that other admins know down the line without having to dig into page history :P). --slakrtalk / 09:29, 27 December 2014 (UTC)
