August 2011[edit]

You currently appear to be engaged in an edit war according to the reverts you have made on Breast self-exam. 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.

I don't want you to end up blocked, so please come talk to the other editors at Talk:Breast self-examination. Tell us what you think, what you'd like to see, what you think the best sources say, and why it matters. I think that everyone wants to see the article improved.

You have been blocked from editing for a period of 24 hours for abuse of editing privileges. Once the block has expired, you are welcome to make useful contributions. If you would like to be unblocked, you may appeal this block by adding the text {{unblock|reason=Your reason here ~~~~}}, but you should read the guide to appealing blocks first.

We welcome discussion but continuing to revert peoples edits is not okay. Please discuss. Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 19:55, 9 August 2011 (UTC)
Just a note to remind you that the block expired last week, and you are free to edit.
Your best course of action is to talk to me, not to just keep putting up your preferred version repeatedly without talking to the other people who are interested in this.
We all want the article to be better than it is now, and I don't think that anyone believes that its current form is perfect. (For example, it probably puts too little emphasis on the importance of BSEs for high-risk women.) It's just not clear to anyone else why you think a laundry list of individual studies is actually an improvement or the sort of thing that you'd find in a regular encyclopedia. When I look at professionally written, patient-oriented encyclopedias like this one, I don't see a list of individual studies. That suggests to me that a list of individual studies is probably not appropriate for an encyclopedia. So if you have a different opinion, then perhaps you will click on Talk:Breast self-examination, read what other people have said, and share your opinion.
