August 2013[edit]

Stop icon

Your recent editing history at Lehi (group) 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. RolandR (talk) 15:47, 25 August 2013 (UTC)

You should note that this article, like all others relating to the Israel-Palestine conflict, is under a specific one revert rule. Ne editor may revert an edit more than once in 24 hours. You are already in breach of this, and if you continue with your pointless edit-war you are almost certain to find yourself blocked from editing. RolandR (talk) 15:49, 25 August 2013 (UTC)

You have been blocked from editing for a period of 24 hours for edit warring, as you did at Lehi (group). Once the block has expired, you are welcome to make useful contributions. If you think there are good reasons why you should be unblocked, you may appeal this block by adding the following text below this notice: {{unblock|reason=Your reason here ~~~~}}. However, you should read the guide to appealing blocks first.

During a dispute, you should first try to discuss controversial changes and seek consensus. If that proves unsuccessful, you are encouraged to seek dispute resolution, and in some cases it may be appropriate to request page protection.  Seraphimblade Talk to me 13:30, 26 August 2013 (UTC)

{{unblock|reason=I've done nothing wrong but try to correct a typographical error on this page. I felt that my change being reverted back to what it was had to have been some sort of error because what I wrote was more accurate than what was previously written. "Integrate" implies joining something that already exists. The IDF did not exist until 1948, the same year Lehi disbanded. Lehi could not join something that did not exist, therefore it is more accurate to say they became the IDF. I suppose one could argue that there were others including the Irgun group that became part of the IDF as well, but even so it would still be much more accurate to say "became part of" the IDF than to say "integrated into". I trust you'll take the appropriate action on this matter. Thank you. -SJ [[Special:Contributions/|]] ([[User talk:|talk]]) 22:07, 28 August 2013 (UTC)}}

  • I have de-activated this request as your block had already expired before you filed it. However, had I seen this when you were blocked, I would have declined it with this message:
  • I'm sorry to see that you are blocked for edit warring. Many users find themselves confused as to why they were blocked in such a situation as they believed they were acting in the best interest of Wikipedia. What it is important for you to understand is that as far as the edit warring policy is concerned there is no right and wrong in an edit war. Anyone who edit wars is wrong and is blocked to prevent the disruption from continuing. There are very few exceptions, such as reverting blatant vandalism, which is not the case here. We don't allow edit warring because it never helps resolve an issue, and it always makes it worse.

Start hand.svg What to do instead:

  • Mark disputed statements or, if needed, the entire page with appropriate tags
  • Initiate discussion on the talk page (note that edit summaries are not a substitute for actual discussion)
  • If that does not rectify the issue seek page protection and/or dispute resolution as needed.
  • If you follow these simple steps instead of edit warring you will find it is actually relatively easy to avoid edit warring and getting blocked for it.
