In particular, the three-revert rule states that:
- Making more than three reversions on a single page within a 24-hour period is almost always grounds for an immediate block.
- 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 continue to edit war, you may be blocked from editing without further notice. Jasper Deng (talk) 00:43, 25 June 2011 (UTC)
- Be aware that the "eight-generation" issue is not as simple as it seems. I don't try to get too much involved with it, but I believe that there are talks about renaming the 8th generation article. TheStickMan[✆Talk] 00:54, 25 June 2011 (UTC)
- Well, yes, but from the discussion there, the majority are in favor of keeping the name as is. Isn't that enough? VinLAURiA (talk) 01:04, 25 June 2011 (UTC)
I'd just like to point out that edit summaries are there to describe your edits. They're not a place to express opinion largely irrelevent to the actual change you're making, like you're doing here. They're not a soapbox for your personal opinions. Thanks. Sergecross73 msg me 01:31, 10 November 2011 (UTC)
- Yeah, I know. I just wanted to vent a little. Sorry, the whole issue had me frustrated. VinLAURiA (talk) 05:00, 10 November 2011 (UTC)
Your recent editing history at History of video game consoles (eighth generation) shows that you are currently engaged in an edit war. Being involved in an edit war can result in you 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.
To avoid being blocked, instead of reverting please consider using the article's talk page to work toward making a version that represents consensus among editors. See BRD for how this is done. You can post a request for help at a relevant noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. In some cases, you may wish to request temporary page protection. NFCC 10c indicates that each non-free media file must have "a specific non-free use rationale for each use of the item" (emphasis mine). The image in question only has a fair use rationale for use on Xbox One as identification of the hardware and its design, which is adequately discussed in the article itself.
Additionally, WP:NFC (the guideline) says that "The use of non-free images arranged in a gallery or tabular format is usually unacceptable," 06:35, 28 May 2013 (UTC)
- What? Three-revert rule? I only made two reverts. And besides, the rule says "on a case-by-case basis." I think we may have to take this to the article's talk page. VinLAURiA (talk) 13:00, 28 May 2013 (UTC)
There is a consensus that it is okay to use non-free media in most cases to represent the subject of the article itself if it significantly increases the reader's understanding. You claim that logos in the table "are an essential bit of identification for the console, as they are often used to denote what system a game is for." Actually no; since the logos do not belong to the subject of the article (which is the entire generation, not just one of them), the table would have to contain critical, sourced commentary on the logos themselves to justify their presence. But, they are only decorative in this article because the table is discussing the hardware and software of the consoles, not their branding.
This is also why we cannot use the non-free image of the Xbox One itself right now either. The Xbox One is not the subject of the entire article, plus, there is not enough sufficient justification to include it right there because the image of the console itself is not discussed.18:04, 28 May 2013 (UTC)
Ryzen cooler listing
Hello VinLAURiA, I notice you have added back the stock cooler listing on the Template:AMD Ryzen template. I have begun a discussion on the talk page there to try and find a consensus on this issue. I hope you will join in. Dbsseven (talk) 14:59, 28 July 2017 (UTC)
Orphaned non-free image File:Super Smash Bros 4 merged logo, no subtitle.png
Thanks for uploading File:Super Smash Bros 4 merged logo, no subtitle.png. The image description page currently specifies that the image is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, the image is currently not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the image was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that images for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).
Note that any non-free images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described in section F5 of the criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. --B-bot (talk) 17:22, 12 March 2018 (UTC)
