F-35 category[edit]

I guess I could have just put my comment from the edit description here. But, oh well... I listed my reasoning, and if you still disagree I'd really like to hear yours (since you didn't make it clear when you removed the heading). I know its a really minor detail. But seems like a good enough time as any to learn more about a fellow editor. You seem to be a constructive regular on the current events portal. I can think of at least one time we've butted heads in the portal (i suspect we may be on different sides of the political spectrum, which is totally fine btw). But I'd like to make sure I'm a constructive editor as well. Just dropping a line to be friendly, and get to know the other editors.Spoonlesscorey (talk) 23:06, 22 May 2018 (UTC)

Edit: I just looked at your profile and realized I confused you with another editorSpoonlesscorey (talk) 23:11, 22 May 2018 (UTC)
Hi @Spoonlesscorey:,the F-35 article is already linked in the event sentence so duplicating it adds nothing other than redundancy. Headings are generally used for ongoing Events or Categories that a story if "Part of", like putting a battle under the heading of the War it is part of. If you look at the other heading in "Current Events" none of them are physical objects (like a fighter jet) they are events or categories. Murchison-Eye (talk) 23:17, 22 May 2018 (UTC)
Cool! Good to know. This editing stuff seemed simple when I first jumped into it, but there is a lot to learn. Thanks.Spoonlesscorey (talk) 23:20, 22 May 2018 (UTC)
No problem @Spoonlesscorey:, Some things like this you just have to pick up as you go :) Murchison-Eye (talk) 23:34, 22 May 2018 (UTC)

September 2018[edit]

Your recent editing history at Millennium Challenge 2002 shows that you are currently engaged in an edit war. To resolve the content dispute, please do not revert or change the edits of others when you are reverted. Instead of reverting, please use the talk page to work toward making a version that represents consensus among editors. The best practice at this stage is to discuss, not edit-war. See BRD for how this is done. If discussions reach an impasse, you can then post a request for help at a relevant noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. In some cases, you may wish to request temporary page protection.

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.

Hi @Toddst1:, thanks for your interest, if you see here I'm actually tring to resolve this properly. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Murchison-Eye (talkcontribs) 21:34, 5 September 2018 (UTC)
That's good, but it is not a licence to continue reverting. Toddst1 (talk) 22:19, 5 September 2018 (UTC)
