User talk:Glynn Young
Hello, and welcome to Wikipedia. You appear to be engaged in an edit war with one or more editors. 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 discuss the situation with the editor(s) involved and 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. -- Ed (Edgar181) 12:03, 10 April 2014 (UTC)
- I received your message on my talk page. I have reverted recent changes to the articles involved. Since this involves parties to litigation, there is a clear conflict of interest (see WP:COI for Wikipedia's related policy). No one involved in the litigation should make any edits to the related articles. If there are potential problems with the articles' content, please use the articles' talk pages to discuss it and then let other editors handle changes to the articles. Also, I have started a discussion on the administrator's noticeboard to let others know if this situation: Wikipedia:Administrators'_noticeboard/Incidents#Participants_in_litigation_edit_warring. You are welcome to contribute to that discussion if you like. -- Ed (Edgar181) 11:54, 11 April 2014 (UTC)
Your recent edits
Hello and welcome to Wikipedia. When you add content to talk pages and Wikipedia pages that have open discussion (but never when editing articles), please be sure to sign your posts. There are two ways to do this. Either:
- Add four tildes ( ~~~~ ) at the end of your comment; or
- With the cursor positioned at the end of your comment, click on the signature button ( or ) 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.
