Awesome–that's great! Thanks for letting me know! —Fishicus (talk) 00:26, 1 February 2013 (UTC)

Your recent editing history at Assange v Swedish Prosecution Authority shows that you are currently engaged in an edit war. Being involved in an edit war can result in you 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.

Serial reverts[edit]

You appear to be serially reverting constructive edits that I've made. Allow me to suggest that you take the issues to the talk page. Your behavior could be seen to be as an attempt to extend a content dispute on You didn't build that to other pages which are unrelated. aprock (talk) 16:29, 10 February 2013 (UTC)

I apologize if you've interpreted my edits to be personal or merely due to the existence of one particular content dispute. This is not my intention. However, our discussion has indicated you may not fully understand the difference between primary and secondary sources and how the relevant policies should be applied in editing. This is concerning to me because I, like many others, want Wikipedia to be the best encyclopedia and an excellent and accurate resource. Consequently, I looked into some of your prior contributions to determine if mistakes had been made elsewhere, and if any were found I attempted to correct them. Again, please recognize that my intent is not malicious. — Fishicus (talk) 01:01, 11 February 2013 (UTC)
Unfortunately, it takes a fair amount of dispute resolution to really get a solid grasp of the nuances of sourcing. I suggest you take some time reading and/or participating in WP:RSN, WP:NPOVN, and WP:BLPN to get a better sense of the nuances of sourcing. I am happy to go over any specific issues or concerns you have about any edits or contributions I've made. I generally don't take wikipedia editing personally, far too much drama on here already. aprock (talk) 01:56, 11 February 2013 (UTC)

British English changes in article[edit]

Hi Fishicus, I reverted your good faith edits on Sandifer syndrome because the article was originally written in British English. Best regards, GeneralBelly (talk) 14:06, 15 August 2014 (UTC)

February 2015[edit]

Information icon Hello and welcome to Wikipedia. When you add content to talk pages and Wikipedia pages that have open discussion (but never when editing articles), such as at Ribbon (computing), please be sure to sign your posts. There are two ways to do this. Either:

  1. Add four tildes ( ~~~~ ) at the end of your comment; or
  2. With the cursor positioned at the end of your comment, click on the signature button (Insert-signature.png or Button sig.png) located above the edit window.

This will automatically insert a signature with your username or IP address and the time you posted the comment. This information is necessary to allow other editors to easily see who wrote what and when.

Thank you. Codename Lisa (talk) 03:15, 9 February 2015 (UTC)

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

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.
