April 2012[edit]

Welcome to Wikipedia, and thank you for your contributions. Although everyone is welcome to contribute constructively to the encyclopedia, please note that there is a Manual of Style that should be followed to maintain a consistent, encyclopedic appearance. Deviating from this style, as you did in Template:Eurovision Song Contest 2012 and Macedonia in the Eurovision Song Contest 2012, makes articles harder to read. Please take a look at the welcome page to learn more about contributing to this encyclopedia. Thank you. Please read the guidelines at Wikipedia:Naming conventions (Macedonia) for further details on how the Republic of Macedonia, needs to be listed on articles and templates. According to the arbitration decision, this guideline is meant to be binding and enforceable for the time being. Editors are reminded that all contentious edits touching upon Macedonia naming practices also continue to be subject to a 1RR restriction. In cases covered by this guideline, editors reinstating the version conforming to it are not subject to this restriction. WesleyMouse 23:27, 10 April 2012 (UTC)

Information.svgThank you for your contributions to Wikipedia. Please do not edit-war over the terminology used to refer to Macedonia, as you did at Macedonia in the Eurovision Song Contest. Wikipedia editors have developed a binding consensus guideline on how to refer to the country, outlined at WP:NCMAC. This is based on the policy of using the most common name generally used in English to refer a country, and/or the name that a country chooses to use for itself, no matter if these names are politically acceptable to third parties (see the naming-conflict guideline). The Arbitration Committee has decided that all edits affecting the Macedonia naming issue are subject to a one-revert restriction: no editor is allowed to undo another editor's action more than once within 24 hours. In cases covered by the binding guideline, editors restoring the consensus version are not subject to this restriction.

Thanks! ~~~~

Report at Admin Noticeboard[edit]

Hello. This message is being sent to inform you that there is currently a discussion at Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard regarding an issue with which you may have been involved. Thank you. WesleyMouse 10:47, 11 April 2012 (UTC)

Edit warring about the name of Macedonia can be sanctioned under WP:ARBMAC[edit]

The Arbitration Committee has permitted administrators to impose discretionary sanctions (information on which is at Wikipedia:Arbitration Committee/Discretionary sanctions) on any editor who is active on pages broadly related to the Balkans. Discretionary sanctions can be used against an editor who repeatedly or seriously fails to adhere to the purpose of Wikipedia, any expected standards of behavior, or any normal editorial process. If you engage in further inappropriate behavior in this area, you may be placed under sanctions, which can include blocks, a revert limitation, or an article ban. The Committee's full decision can be read in the Wikipedia:Requests for arbitration/Macedonia#Final decision section of the decision page.

Please familiarise yourself with the information page at Wikipedia:Arbitration Committee/Discretionary sanctions, with the appropriate sections of Wikipedia:Arbitration Committee/Procedures, and with the case decision page.

The community has agreed on a set of naming rules about Macedonia which are set forth at WP:NCMAC. You appear to be trying to violate that convention. You would not be the first. See the list of editors sanctioned in WP:ARBMAC#Log of blocks and bans before continuing on this crusade. Since you have broken the one revert per day restriction regarding the name of Macedonia at Macedonia in the Eurovision Song Contest 2012, you are already eligible for a block without further notice.
