Sri Lanka[edit]

Hey, thank you for your support in the Sri Lanka article but I would suggest that you do not get into an editwar, especially the The three-revert rule. Thanks Happy editing. :)--Blackknight12 (talk) 05:07, 9 September 2011 (UTC)

Your recent edits seem to have the appearance of edit warring after a review of the reverts you have made on Sri Lanka. Users are expected to collaborate and discuss with others and avoid editing disruptively.

Please be particularly aware, 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 the 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 without further notice.
Blackknight12 already warned you above, so consider this your last warning. Happy editing... ~ AdvertAdam talk 07:29, 9 September 2011 (UTC)

October 2013[edit]

Your recent editing history at Sri Lanka 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. 'Removing the section about human rights abuses in Sri Lanka needs a clear support on the talk page which there isn't, and WP:WPC is advisory only, so your repeated removal of the text constitutes simple edit warring. And will be treated as such.' Thomas.W talk to me 08:22, 27 October 2013 (UTC)

Notice of Edit warring noticeboard discussion[edit]

Information icon Hello. This message is being sent to inform you that there is currently a discussion involving you at Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard/Edit warring regarding a possible violation of Wikipedia's policy on edit warring. The thread is Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard/Edit warring#User:DinoGrado reported by User:Thomas.W (Result: ). Thank you. Thomas.W talk to me 09:00, 27 October 2013 (UTC)

Stop icon This is your last warning. The next time you remove or blank page content or templates from Wikipedia, as you did at Sri Lanka, you may be blocked from editing without further notice. Sam Sailor Sing 10:19, 27 October 2013 (UTC)

You have been blocked from editing for a short time for your disruption caused by edit warring and violation of the three-revert rule. 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. If you would like to be unblocked, you may appeal this block by adding the text {{unblock|reason=Your reason here ~~~~}} below this notice, but you should read the guide to appealing blocks first.

Your message[edit]

On my talk page. How do you figure I have a COI? Darkness Shines (talk) 17:55, 21 November 2013 (UTC)

Personal attacks do not help you advance your position[edit]

The last sentence in this posting to talk:Genocides in history does nothing further your potion that the section you have added should remain in the article, but instead seriously undermines it to anyone new who comes to read the conversation. I suggest that you remove it. If you choose not to do that then if you are taken to another ANI, that comment and others like it are likely to be used by those who argue that your behaviour is unacceptable. If on the other hand on reflection you do remove, and then use that in your defence at a future AMI, it that will count in your favour with those who have no axe to grind. -- PBS (talk) 13:54, 24 November 2013 (UTC)

Wikimedia Community User Group Sri Lanka[edit]

Dear DinoGrado,

Thank you for your contributions to the Wikimedia Projects. As a Sri Lankan editor, you are warmly invited to join the official Wikimedia Community User Group Sri Lanka and to subscribe to its mailing list, Wikimedia-LK.

The user group currently includes volunteers from Wikipedia and other projects, from the English, Sinhala, and Tamil speaking communities. It is the Wikimedia-approved platform for editors from Sri Lanka to enable wider collaboration, for both online and offline projects.

With your support, we hope to organize cross-project content improvement drives as part of online projects, as well as organize in-person edit-a-thons, training sessions, photowalks, and other such activities, in the near future. The ultimate goal(s) of these initiatives is to improve the overall coverage and quality of topics relating to Sri Lanka, as well as encourage new editors to join the Wikimedia community, while simultaneously empowering and retaining our existing team of editors.

There are no mandatory obligations for members who choose join the community, other than the usual editing rules for online projects, and the friendly space policy for in-person projects. You may also (or instead) subscribe to the mailing list, where any member could initiate discussions with volunteers across projects, notify members of events and meetings, stay up to date with competitions, organize your own events, and so on.

See you on board, and Happy Editing!
