Hello, I'm BracketBot. I have automatically detected that your edit to Élie Metchnikoff may have broken the syntax by modifying 1 "()"s. If you have, don't worry: just edit the page again to fix it. If I misunderstood what happened, or if you have any questions, you can leave a message on my operator's talk page.

List of unpaired brackets remaining on the page:
  • | birth_place = Ivanovka, [[Kharkiv Oblast]], [[Ukraine]])

As you probably expected. this IP address has been blocked from editing, because it has been used to evade a block on another IP address, and to continue exactly the same disruptive editing. You were given instructions on how to request an unblock, and ignoring the block and trying to get round it by using a different IP address is not how to do it. Naturally, this time the block is for a substantially longer time than previously. Another method of dealing with disruptive editors who evade blocks in this way is to protect the articles they have edited, to prevent them from doing so again. That is undesirable, as it also inconveniences other editors, who may have legitimate editing to do, so please don't make that necessary. JamesBWatson (talk) 13:38, 25 January 2014 (UTC)
