May 2011[edit]

You currently appear to be engaged in an edit war according to the reverts you have made on List of IIHF World Championship medalists. Users are expected to collaborate with others and avoid editing disruptively.

In particular, the three-revert rule states that:

  1. Making more than three reversions on a single page within a 24-hour period is almost always grounds for an immediate block.
  2. Do not edit war even if you believe you are right.

If you find yourself in an editing dispute, use the article's talk page to discuss controversial changes; work towards a version that represents consensus among editors. You can post a request for help at an appropriate noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. In some cases it may be appropriate to request temporary page protection. If you continue to edit war, you may be blocked from editing without further notice. Resolute 19:24, 14 May 2011 (UTC)


Hello, this issue has already been discussed to death. A few years ago, we used to list every nation seperately, including the Soviet Union and Czechoslovakia. Then, in 2008, Russia won the gold medal. Suddenly, users realized that when combined with the Soviet Union, this put them ahead of Canada, so there was a big edit war and discussion. There was another one the following year, here (although the discussion mainly focuses on Russia, it applies to the Czech Republic too). It was decided that since the IIHF officially recognizes the Russia and the Czech Republic as the sole successors to the Soviet Union and Czechoslovakia and considers them one and the same we should as well. Yes, it really makes no sense to combine the totals of teams made up of different nations with one successor, but that is how the IIHF does it. -- Scorpion0422 19:31, 14 May 2011 (UTC)
