ArbCom 2017 election voter message[edit]

The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to impose binding solutions to disputes between editors, primarily for serious conduct disputes the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the authority 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 in the 2017 election, please review the candidates and submit your choices on the voting page. MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 18:42, 3 December 2017 (UTC)

Encyclopedia, sourced to independent refs[edit]

MikroTik was not a Wikipedia article but rather a page in the encyclopedia hijacked by fans of this product. It is still awful but less so. Please do not restore content that is:

  • unsourced
  • sourced only to the company's website.

Wikipedia is not a proxy for the product webpage (see WP:PROMO which explicitly says this.

We just recently went through a bunch of drama around OPNsense and Pfsense - this page appears to suffer the same problems. Jytdog (talk) 16:56, 10 December 2017 (UTC)

Edit warring to retain policy-violating content content[edit]

Information icon Please do not add promotional material to Wikipedia, as you did to MikroTik. While objective prose about beliefs, organisations, people, products or services is acceptable, Wikipedia is not intended to be a vehicle for soapboxing, advertising or promotion. Thank you.

Please stop adding unsourced content, as you did to MikroTik. This contravenes Wikipedia's policy on verifiability. If you continue to do so, you may be blocked from editing Wikipedia. }

Your recent editing history at MikroTik 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.
