Dorian Collaku[edit]

I have noticed that you reverted again my editing. This is the second time that your sentence appears into the article. To avoid edit warring against each other, you may create a table of results instead of placing them in a paragraph form. That's my suggestion. Take a look at one of my articles that I created, before you add something. Someone added the results/achievements table, but I gradually accepted them. Here's an example. Sergey Pakura (contains achievements and results). Thank you. Raymarcbadz (talk) 02:49 5 January 2013 (UTC)

Could someone please help me with dealing with the above posting on my talk page by user Raymarcbadz. It feels to me like a mild form of wikibullying by a user who takes very seriously and very personally a set of wikipedia articles. In my (possibly naive) opinion:
1. My insert was a good faith edit and consistent with Wikipedia policies: neutral point of view; verifiability and no original research. It was also relevant to the article and added information that would have been of interest to anyone looking for information on Dorian Collaku.
2. The revert by Raymarcbadz was without explanation; the re-insert was with a citation in the belief that the original edit may have been reverted due to a lack of reliable source.
3. Page creation does not imply page ownership; the tone of Raymarcbadz's comments feels to me that he is insisting on a certain layout of an article he created.
4. An easier, more efficient and friendlier way for Raymarcbadz to do what he wishes would have been to create the table himself.
5. The article in question is a very seldom viewed article (39 views in the last 90 days according to with little information and it is unlikely that Dorian Collaku will perform in a manner to warrant a more complete article.
6. Consistency of layout between articles is desired but in no way does either method have a consensus.

I would appreciate any opinions on how to effectively respond to Raymarcbadz (or whether to respond at all). I have no particular interest in the article in question but would like to know how best to deal with comments like this in the future.

I have re-added the content and provided my rationale at the article's talk page. In such cases I'd suggest to explain your reasoning, and if that doesn't work (because you are ignored or because the two of you cannot agree on the best course of action) to seek wider community input, either via WP:3O or by leaving a message on a relevant, active WikiProject's talk page. I'd also like to point to WP:AGF; while I certainly don't agree with Raymarcbadz on the issue, it's better not to start out with accusations of bullying for what is ultimately a suggestion, not a command. If it turns out to actually be an attempt at bullying or page ownership, seeking wider community input becomes all the more important. Huon (talk) 01:46, 6 January 2013 (UTC)
