November 2015[edit]

You currently appear to be engaged in an edit war according to the reverts you have made on Electronic cigarette. Users are expected to collaborate with others, to avoid editing disruptively, and to try to reach a consensus rather than repeatedly undoing other users' edits once it is known that there is a disagreement.
Please be particularly aware that Wikipedia's policy on edit warring states:

  1. Edit warring is disruptive regardless of how many reverts you have made.
  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 controversial 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.. You previously made this change. See Talk:Electronic cigarette/Archive 23#Removal. Now you have made a similar change months later and you made this revert. QuackGuru (talk) 22:05, 19 November 2015 (UTC)

  • No, QuackGuru. One revert is not edit-warring. I fully understand why you want to put warning templates on my talk page, and so will any neutral administrator who reviews your behaviour. Please do not put inappropriate warnings on my talk page again.—S Marshall T/C 22:19, 19 November 2015 (UTC)
S Marshall, I'm afraid others might disagree with you about 1-Revert being edit warring. Please see here.[1]. Apologies for butting-in - it was just so timely in what is going on over there.DrChrissy (talk) 22:32, 19 November 2015 (UTC)
  • No, DrChrissy. My actions on that page do not constitute and have never constituted edit warring. QuackGuru's warning on my talk page is massively inappropriate and what it shows is that he's learned nothing from the lectures and censure he received at the Arbcom page. He's already returning to his characteristic pettifogging, controlling behaviour, and he really does not understand that he's drinking in the last chance saloon on Wikipedia.—S Marshall T/C 22:46, 19 November 2015 (UTC)
S Marshall, you may have misinterpreted my posting. Sorry, I should have been clearer. I do not believe for one nano-second that a single reversion should be considered as edit warring. Even 2 reverts is usually fine; we have a well established 3RR rule. I was simply highlighting what is currently going on at Arbcom - that I am probably about to receive a topic ban for edit warring, and the evidence for this is a single revert.DrChrissy (talk) 22:55, 19 November 2015 (UTC)

Amendment request[edit]

You are involved in a recently-filed request for clarification or amendment from the Arbitration Committee. Please review the request at Wikipedia:Arbitration/Requests/Clarification_and_Amendment#Amendment_request:_Editor_conduct_in_e-cigs_articles and, if you wish to do so, enter your statement and any other material you wish to submit to the Arbitration Committee. Additionally, the Wikipedia:Arbitration guide may be of use.

Thanks, QuackGuru (talk) 22:58, 19 November 2015 (UTC)

It appears QG has tried to make my request his own. I opened the section and did not include you in it S Marshall. It was simply my request to add evidence to the case about him. AlbinoFerret 00:19, 20 November 2015 (UTC)

According to this I put my request on the wrong page. It cannot be sorted out at the request for clarification page. QuackGuru (talk) 22:31, 21 November 2015 (UTC)

Ah, sorry![edit]

I forgot how long you had been around. Nonetheless: [4] and [5]. Note in particular the top talk pages:

202 Talk:Electronic cigarette
26 Talk:Syed Ahmed
583 Talk:Catholic Church
192 Talk:Muhammad/images
184 Talk:Electronic cigarette
128 Talk:Medieval art
128 Talk:Humanism
- and so on. Read some of those & you might see where I'm coming from. Johnbod (talk) 20:45, 20 November 2015 (UTC)
  • Yep, I realise you've been active in contentious areas of the encyclopaedia for a long time. In fact you began this process quite high in my esteem because I recall seeing you (if not quite meeting you) at the British Museum GLAM thing and your sterling efforts the last time our edits overlapped, which was on Holy Thorn Reliquary in 2010. This means that I'm confident that you have a British sense of humour and an advanced understanding of sarcasm, which affects how I respond to you.  ;)

    Personally I've spent a lot of my editing time in quiet backwaters of the encyclopaedia building articles about rural England and its history, which aren't contentious as long as you steer clear of the wars that involved America. I've spent a lot of my Wikipedia time at Deletion Review, which taught me a lot about the flaws and foibles of our admin corps... and I've closed about seventy RfCs, including some right corkers which taught me a lot about how we solve content disputes.—S Marshall T/C 21:17, 20 November 2015 (UTC)

I will point out, that the amount of posting in relation to other pages has been used as evidence against editors in this topic area. AlbinoFerret 00:38, 21 November 2015 (UTC)
  • Yup. It's been used as evidence against me, too. I have nearly a thousand edits to Wikipedia talk:Verifiability, which apparently makes me a dangerous obsessive.—S Marshall T/C 01:50, 21 November 2015 (UTC)
It only shows you care about something, and that is a dangerous crime to some. I just dont want to see editors who make sense attacked. Yes I can detect sarcasm also. AlbinoFerret 02:06, 21 November 2015 (UTC)
Well it's heads you're an SPA, tails you have a battleground mentality! I'd forgotten about HTR. Cheers, Johnbod (talk) 04:39, 21 November 2015 (UTC)
We should all watch out, there seems to be an editor walking around with a footgun. AlbinoFerret 23:06, 21 November 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.

Arbitration request withdrawn[edit]

The request for arbitration has been withdrawn by its filer, QuackGuru. For the Arbitration Committee, Miniapolis 20:44, 23 November 2015 (UTC)
