March 2013[edit]

Hello, and welcome to Wikipedia. You appear to be engaged in an edit war with one or more editors according to your reverts at Free Territory of Trieste. Although repeatedly reverting or undoing another editor's contributions may seem necessary to protect your preferred version of a page, on Wikipedia this is usually seen as obstructing the normal editing process, and often creates animosity between editors. Instead of edit warring, please try to reach a consensus on the talk page.

If editors continue to revert to their preferred version they are likely to be blocked from editing. This isn't done to punish an editor, but to prevent the disruption caused by edit warring. In particular, editors should be aware of the three-revert rule, which says that an editor must not perform more than three reverts on a single page within a 24-hour period. While edit warring on Wikipedia is not acceptable in any amount, breaking the three-revert rule is very likely to lead to a block. Thank you. Dawn Bard (talk) 23:32, 7 March 2013 (UTC)

I don't see how I'd be responsible for any of that, as I (together with many more collaborating users) have been adding LOTS of content to the page, while the other (anonymous) user is simply vandalizing it, without replying or discussing anything. I was wondering if he/she'd be allowed to continue indefinitely... (and wasn't myself aware of the 3-revert rule, so thanks for letting me know) Aarska (talk) 07:03, 8 March 2013 (UTC)
