Hi! Welcome

I have requested enforcement of the active arbitration remedy of 1RR restriction on Operation Defensive Shield per your two reverts on june 7,[edit]

I have requested enforcement of arbitration remedies for article Operation Defensive Shield as part of the israel palestine arbitration agreement. WP:AETeeTylerToe (talk) 14:42, 10 June 2014 (UTC)

It seems you have broken the WP:1RR restriction at Operation Defensive Shield on June 7. Please respond to the AE complaint and explain why you shouldn't be blocked. Thank you, EdJohnston (talk) 16:38, 10 June 2014 (UTC)

Operation Defensive Shield is covered by discretionary sanctions under WP:ARBPIA[edit]

Commons-emblem-notice.svg Please carefully read this information:

The Arbitration Committee has authorised discretionary sanctions to be used for pages regarding the Arab–Israeli conflict, a topic which you have edited. The Committee's decision is here.

Discretionary sanctions is a system of conduct regulation designed to minimize disruption to controversial topics. This means uninvolved administrators can impose sanctions for edits relating to the topic that do not adhere to the purpose of Wikipedia, our standards of behavior, or relevant policies. Administrators may impose sanctions such as editing restrictions, bans, or blocks. This message is to notify you sanctions are authorised for the topic you are editing. Before continuing to edit this topic, please familiarise yourself with the discretionary sanctions system. Don't hesitate to contact me or another editor if you have any questions.

This message is informational only and does not imply misconduct regarding your contributions to date.

If you have concerns about the neutrality of this article you are expected to participate on the talk page. Thank you, EdJohnston (talk) 02:49, 11 June 2014 (UTC)

Please self-revert[edit]

You are back again at Operation Defensive Shield with a new revert to your preferred version of the article with no evidence that anyone supports your view on the talk page. The AE was closed with no action on the assumption that you would be more careful in the future. If you don't self revert a block for the original 1RR violation may be necessary. EdJohnston (talk) 04:38, 11 June 2014 (UTC)

Hi. Actually this is the long-standing version of the paragraph before TeeTylerToe changed it. There was never a consensus on the talk page to add TeeTylerToe's POV-pushing bad-sourced version. Furthermore, I didn't break the 1RR in the first place, since this was not a revert (unlike this one), but a correction of my previous mistake when I removed the second paragraph unintentionally (fortunately Sean let me know of my error). Therefore I've never made more than one revert in a 24 hours period. Nevertheless, I'll settle the issue on the talk page of the article. Meanwhile I think the long-standing version before TeeTylerToe's changes should remain in place. I hope you'll understand. It's not my intention to break any rule or provoke an edit warring.--AmirSurfLera (talk) 08:45, 12 June 2014 (UTC)

Previous account?[edit]

May I ask if you have previously edited Wikipedia, and if so, under which account-name? Cheers, Huldra (talk) 21:45, 11 June 2014 (UTC)

No, I haven't. Thanks for asking.--AmirSurfLera (talk) 07:59, 12 June 2014 (UTC)

June 2014[edit]

You currently appear to be engaged in an edit war according to the reverts you have made on Kingdom of Israel (united monarchy). Users are expected to collaborate with others, to avoid editing disruptively, and to try to reach a consensus rather than repeatedly undoing other users' edits once it is known that there is a disagreement.

Please be particularly aware, Wikipedia's policy on edit warring states:

  1. Edit warring is disruptive regardless of how many reverts you have made; that is to say, editors are not automatically "entitled" to three reverts.
  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 engage in an edit war, you may be blocked from editing. — Malik Shabazz Talk/Stalk 17:10, 13 June 2014 (UTC)

June 2014[edit]

To enforce an arbitration decision, and for the reasons and evidence presented in this AE request, you have been blocked from editing for a period of two days. You are welcome to edit once the block expires; however, please note that the repetition of similar behavior may result in a longer block. If you believe this block is unjustified, please read the guide to appealing arbitration enforcement blocks and then appeal your block using the instructions there. Callanecc (talkcontribslogs) 12:36, 15 June 2014 (UTC)

Reminder to administrators: In March 2010, ArbCom adopted a procedure instructing administrators as follows: "No administrator may modify a sanction placed by another administrator without: (1) the explicit prior affirmative consent of the enforcing administrator; or (2) prior affirmative agreement for the modification at (a) AE or (b) AN or (c) ARCA (see "Important notes" [in the procedure]). Administrators modifying sanctions out of process may at the discretion of the committee be desysopped." Administrators who reverse this block without the clear authorisation described in that procedure will be summarily desysopped.

To enforce an arbitration decision, for violating WP:1RR at Mandatory Palestine, you have been blocked from editing for a period of one month. You are welcome to edit once the block expires; however, please note that the repetition of similar behavior may result in a longer block. If you believe this block is unjustified, please read the guide to appealing arbitration enforcement blocks and then appeal your block using the instructions there.

Arbitration Enforcement[edit]

Commons-emblem-hand.svg The following sanction now applies to you:

You are banned indefinitely from all articles, discussions, and other content related to the Arab-Israeli conflict, broadly construed across all namespaces. You may appeal this after six months.

You have been sanctioned for the reasons provided in response to this arbitration enforcement request.

This sanction is imposed in my capacity as an uninvolved administrator under the authority of the Arbitration Committee's decision at Wikipedia:Requests for arbitration/Palestine-Israel articles#Final decision and, if applicable, the procedure described at Wikipedia:Arbitration Committee/Discretionary sanctions. This sanction has been recorded in the log of sanctions for that decision. If the sanction includes a ban, please read the banning policy to ensure you understand what this means. If you do not comply with this sanction, you may be blocked for an extended period, by way of enforcement of this sanction—and you may also be made subject to further sanctions.

You may appeal this sanction using the process described here. I recommend that you use the arbitration enforcement appeals template if you wish to submit an appeal to the arbitration enforcement noticeboard. You may also appeal directly to me (on my talk page), before or instead of appealing to the noticeboard. Even if you appeal this sanction, you remain bound by it until you are notified by an uninvolved administrator that the appeal has been successful. You are also free to contact me on my talk page if anything of the above is unclear to you. Lord Roem ~ (talk) 06:27, 8 July 2014 (UTC)

Activity[edit]

Six months of inactivity since the ban does not in any way help. All I can really advise you is that there are a huge number of reference sources, public domain and otherwise, on the internet which between them have a scary number of articles which we don't yet have covered. Honestly, it wouldn't be hard to find one public domain encyclopedic source out there and put together articles here related to topics covered individually there. I know personally wikisource and wikimedia commons have several PD reference sources containing articles that don't yet have coverage here. And there are untold numbers of others at archive.org, open library, and other sources. And that isn't counting all the more current reference sources accessible at google books. But, yeah, unfortunately, disappearing for six months after a specific topic ban can't really be seen as being an indicator of your ability to work with others improving, and that is what is generally sought before a restriction can be lifted. John Carter (talk) 22:52, 12 January 2015 (UTC)

AE appeal declined[edit]

I'm sorry to inform you that the appeal of your topic ban from the topic area of the Arab-Israeli conflict has been declined. The consensus of uninvolved administrators was that a track record of constructive contributions to other topic areas is a prerequisite to the vacating of the topic ban. You may appeal again in six months, or you may make a final appeal to the arbitration committee as described at WP:ACDS#Appeals. I will also commend Callanecc's suggestion in the appeal of places to find things to do on Wikipedia that aren't connected to the Arab-Israeli conflict. Regards, HJ Mitchell | Penny for your thoughts? 21:40, 14 January 2015 (UTC)

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

Hi,
You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page. For the Election committee, MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 17:06, 24 November 2015 (UTC)

Topic ban violations[edit]

Since you returned yesterday you have made 16 edits, 5 of which violated your ARBPIA topic ban because they are related to the "Arab-Israeli conflict, broadly construed".[1][2][3][4][5] If you make another edit that violates the topic ban I will file an AE report. This could result in your account being blocked. It's easy to decide whether an edit is related to the "Arab-Israeli conflict, broadly construed" and it's easy to not make those edits and stay out of trouble. Sean.hoyland - talk 16:07, 2 May 2016 (UTC)

I was coming to state exactly the same.
Sean.hoyland is too kind -> if you don't self-revert, I will report you ; not just if you stop. Pluto2012 (talk) 16:49, 2 May 2016 (UTC)
There is no need to be rude. I made a mistake on Barghouti, but my edit was already reverted. I didn't violate my topic ban with the rest of the edits, since they are related to Nazism, antisemitism and the Holocaust, not the Arab-Israeli conflict. I wasn't banned from all Jewish-related articles.--AmirSurfLera (talk) 21:49, 2 May 2016 (UTC)
Your response is unsatisfactory (see [6]) Sean.hoyland - talk 08:17, 3 May 2016 (UTC)

May 2016[edit]

Stop icon with clock
You have been blocked for a period of three months from editing for multiple violations of your topic ban. 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 first reading the guide to appealing blocks, then adding the following text to the bottom of your talk page: {{unblock|reason=Your reason here ~~~~}}.  Seraphimblade Talk to me 12:49, 7 May 2016 (UTC)
To add to the above, you've got to stay away from the boundary of your topic ban. You said you "don't know" about any other areas, but actually, that's just fine! We shouldn't be writing from our personal knowledge anyway, but from reliable source material. To write about anything, all you have to know is how to find and read the references. If antisemitism, in particular, interests you, might I suggest that, rather than writing about modern antisemitism (which will often tangle up with Israeli conflicts), that upon your return, you do some work on historical antisemitism? The Middle Ages, in particular, were full of blatant, virulent, and often state-approved or state-mandated antisemitism. See Statute of the Jewry, blood libel, and Jewish deicide (that one's the "Christ killer" bit) for some examples. We certainly could do with some better coverage on that type of historical antisemitism, and a lot of reference material is available about it.
And of course, in editing those, you're not much at risk of crossing wires with the modern Israel-Palestine conflict. You'll find that if you can do good work outside the area of your topic ban, and can show you've grown as an editor and won't cause further problems, a future request to ease or lift the topic ban may well succeed. But violating it or just not editing at all won't get you there. That will get you here, and if there's another incident, it may well get you blocked indefinitely. That's never a good outcome. If you're unclear in the future about whether something might violate your topic ban, you can ask the admin who imposed it, and if they're unavailable, you're certainly welcome to ask me as well.

Copying from other Wikipedias requires proper attribution[edit]

Information icon Thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia. It appears that you copied or moved text from Antisemitism in Europe into Antisemitism. While you are welcome to re-use Wikipedia's content, here or elsewhere, Wikipedia's licensing does require that you provide attribution to the original contributor(s). When copying within Wikipedia, this is supplied at minimum in an edit summary at the page into which you've copied content. It is good practice, especially if copying is extensive, to also place a properly formatted {{copied}} template on the talk pages of the source and destination. The attribution has been provided for this situation, but if you have copied material between pages before, even if it was a long time ago, please provide attribution for that duplication. You can read more about the procedure and the reasons at Wikipedia:Copying within Wikipedia. Thank you. — Diannaa (talk) 17:18, 7 May 2016 (UTC)

Notification[edit]

I have reported you for yet another breach of your topic ban, immediately following your latest block. RolandR (talk) 11:31, 12 August 2016 (UTC)

August 2016[edit]

To enforce an arbitration decision and for a repeat violation of your topic ban, you have been blocked from editing for a period of 6 months. You are welcome to edit once the block expires; however, please note that the repetition of similar behavior may result in a longer block or other sanctions.

If you believe this block is unjustified, please read the guide to appealing blocks (specifically this section) before appealing. Place the following on your talk page: {{unblock|reason=Please copy my appeal to the [[WP:AE|arbitration enforcement noticeboard]] or [[WP:AN|administrators' noticeboard]]. Your reason here OR place the reason below this template. ~~~~}}. If you intend to appeal on the arbitration enforcement noticeboard I suggest you use the arbitration enforcement appeals template on your talk page so it can be copied over easily. You may also appeal directly to me (by email), before or instead of appealing on your talk page. Seraphimblade Talk to me 21:12, 15 August 2016 (UTC)


Reminder to administrators: In May 2014, ArbCom adopted the following procedure instructing administrators regarding Arbitration Enforcement blocks: "No administrator may modify a sanction placed by another administrator without: (1) the explicit prior affirmative consent of the enforcing administrator; or (2) prior affirmative agreement for the modification at (a) AE or (b) AN or (c) ARCA (see "Important notes" [in the procedure]). Administrators modifying sanctions out of process may at the discretion of the committee be desysopped."
