Administrator instructions

Welcome to the edit warring noticeboard
This page is for reporting active edit warriors and recent violations of restrictions like the three-revert rule. Sections older than 48 hours are archived by Lowercase sigmabot III.
You must notify any user you report.
You may use {{subst:an3-notice}} ~~~~ to do so.

Additional notes: Feed-icon.svg You can subscribe to a web feed of this page in either RSS or Atom format.
  • When reporting a user here, your own behavior will also be scrutinized. Be sure you understand WP:REVERT and the definitions below first.
  • Possible alternatives to filing here are dispute resolution, or a request for page protection.
  • Violations of other restrictions, like WP:1RR violations, may also be brought here. Your report should include two reverts that occurred within a 24-hour period, and a link to where the 1RR restriction was imposed.

Definition of edit warring
Edit warring is a behavior, typically exemplified by the use of repeated edits to "win" a content dispute. It is different than a bold, revert, discuss (BRD) cycle. Reverting vandalism and banned users is not edit warring; at the same time, content disputes, even egregious point of view edits and other good-faith changes do not constitute vandalism. Administrators often must make a judgment call to identify edit warring when cooling disputes. Administrators currently use several measures to determine if a user is edit warring.
Definition of the three-revert rule (3RR)
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. Violations of the this rule normally attract blocks of at least 24 hours. Any appearance of gaming the system by reverting a fourth time just outside the 24-hour slot is likely to be treated as a 3RR violation. See here for exemptions.

A couple of weeks ago this user was blocked for the exact same edit warring, however as soon as the block was listed they appear to be back to the same edit warring. Here is the previous block [20]. He asked me on my talk page about it and I recommended he take the issue to the wikiproject [21] - GalatzTalk 14:14, 18 September 2017 (UTC)

User:70.211.128.244 reported by User:Biografer (Result: Semi)[edit]

Edit warring on Jason Ybarra page with 2 different accounts:

I suggested to User:Biografer that this article is mostly unsourced and it would make sense to nominate it for AfD. Some of the IP edits look to be removal of unsourced material. (We are unlikely to block for that). EdJohnston (talk) 17:44, 19 September 2017 (UTC)
  • Result: Semiprotected one week by User:GB fan. I am considering proposing deletion via WP:PROD because most of the content is unsourced. If the unsourced material can't be used, the performer may not be notable. EdJohnston (talk) 15:37, 20 September 2017 (UTC)

It looks like my comments got swallowed up by a template. In brief, the user on their talk page admits to being the same individual as the IP address cited in one of the diffs. Therefore it's at least four reverts in close succession by a single user. Alephb (talk) 10:25, 19 September 2017 (UTC)

  • Result: Warned for edit warring. User:The scar face may be blocked if they revert again at Intelligent design without getting prior consensus on the talk page.

Comments:
Not involved in the article myself, but it's pretty clear this new editor is trying to push in content while not listening to other editors trying to correct their behavior. Based on the few talk page comments and edit summaries, it looks like this editor is WP:NOTHERE and acting in a WP:RGW manner with their edit warring. Kingofaces43 (talk) 17:12, 19 September 2017 (UTC)

(edit conflict) They have also left warning templates on several editors' talk pages and tried to open an arbitration case and request for comment and ignored explanations of wikipedia procedure. Natureium (talk) 17:17, 19 September 2017 (UTC)
  • It is clear upon reading the sources that there is obvious guarding of the page to fit a certain Bias. This falls against wikiepdia guidelinesCameronbrooks (talk) 17:16, 19 September 2017 (UTC)
  • The discussion has been moved to the talk page and will resolve from there.Cameronbrooks (talk) 17:18, 19 September 2017 (UTC)
  • No, Cameron, this discussion has not moved to the Talk page. it is still here and you need to deal with it. -Roxy the dog. bark 17:21, 19 September 2017 (UTC)
  • If Cameronbrooks engages in discussion about the matter at the talk page and does not revert the article further, then there is no administrative action that needs to be taken. Further, their last edit to the article was at 15:34 UTC, an hour and a half before this report was filed. I'm inclined to say no administrative action is needed right now, but I'm also going to wait and see what happens next. —C.Fred (talk) 17:24, 19 September 2017 (UTC)
  • C.Fred Thank you, we are on the exact same page. I am trying to resolve this through the proper channels and I appreciate your input in such matters and welcome any suggestions.Cameronbrooks (talk) 17:26, 19 September 2017 (UTC)
  • From what I can see, the first two reverts were an attempt to fix the issue. The content added was removed saying it wasn't properly sourced, so the revert was legit attempts to address the issue raised rather than a pure revert. If the actions continue thats a different story, but hopefully it is something fixed in the talk page now. Hard to say proof of pattern since the user is new, but a simple warning should have sufficed here to inform them of the policy. - GalatzTalk 17:40, 19 September 2017 (UTC)
  • Stop x nuvola with clock.svg Blocked Blocked 72 hours. Edit warring continued after the user was informed of the concerns. Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 17:46, 19 September 2017 (UTC)
@Doc James: the user had disengaged from the edit war before this report was opened. Their last revert of the article was at 15:34; a while later after the unusual Arbcom request was filed, another admin advised them to start a discussion, which they were trying to do. I don't think that a block for edit warring is justified here. Ivanvector (Talk/Edits) 18:26, 19 September 2017 (UTC)
Agreed, they said it to EdJohnston on their talk page per Ivan's diff, and they said it to C.Fred immediately above. Including Ivan and me, that's 4 admins who think waiting and seeing is better. I've unblocked. --Floquenbeam (talk) 18:34, 19 September 2017 (UTC)
They were warned at "15:19" and continued to edit war at "15:34"
They continued with the filling of an arbcom case at 17:16 after their last comment on their talk page at 16:54.
They continue to promote the use of a non review that do not discuss the condition in question such as this [43] at 17:31.[44] after MEDRS was explained to them at "15:40". But sure, no worries about unblocking. Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 19:14, 19 September 2017 (UTC)
  • I think there might be some confusion about how many times he was warned because his talk page originally was redirecting to another user's talk page. He was warned by me and someone else at the same time on User talk:Brmoon4267, and then multiple times on his own talk page, but he also templated Alexbrn, Roxy the dog, and myself more than once. He was told several times in edit summaries and on his talk page to stop. His reversions weren't an accident. Natureium (talk) 19:20, 19 September 2017 (UTC)
    • Yes, he clearly reverted once even after the first templated warning explaining what edit warring is, clearly violated 3RR, and was clearly being disruptive with his templates thrown at you all. But he's new, he can't really be blamed for the talk page redirect, he stopped edit warring, told two different admins he wouldn't revert anymore, hasn't reverted after those assurances, and those two admins felt a block at this time wasn't necessary. So a 3 day edit warring block over-ruling them wasn't necessary. --Floquenbeam (talk) 19:33, 19 September 2017 (UTC)
      • User has stopped the disruptive editing. So no further issues from my opinion. Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 16:25, 21 September 2017 (UTC)

Continually removing cited information from the page; claims to be the person the article is about. Also seems to have previously used the username Mike Stevens(though they are not socking) When they edited the article under that name, they briefly posted on the article talk page but did not engage in further discussion. 331dot (talk) 17:42, 19 September 2017 (UTC)

The person also edited the page on July 30th. Though they haven't breached 3RR (though at 3) they seem to indicate that they will continue to insist on their version of the page through further reverting if needed. 331dot (talk) 17:47, 19 September 2017 (UTC)

Comments:

Attempting to enforce assertion that this article is solely about this channel following its rebranding from Discovery Kids to The Hub, and changing its listed launch date to match their interpretation, despite the article having counted it as a merged history since around the time it was re-branded back under a Discovery name. ViperSnake151  Talk  23:03, 20 September 2017 (UTC)

ViperSnake151 violates Wikipedia: No original research, claiming that the Discovery Family was launched on October 7, 1996. Discovery Family was officially launched on October 13, 2014 (I added a reliable source to the article). Discovery Kids was launched on October 7, 1996, and dissolved in 2010. So Discovery Kids and Discovery Family are not the same channel. ViperSnake151 does not accept either a reliable source or my arguments. Federal Chancellor (NightShadow) (talk) 23:22, 20 September 2017 (UTC)

How are you saying that what the article explicitly says multiple times is original research? Your assertion that Discovery Kids is "dissolved" and thus persona non grata is just as much original research. ViperSnake151  Talk  00:03, 21 September 2017 (UTC)
Nope. Discovery Kids was dissolved after the Hub Network. Hub Network was registered as Hub Television Networks, LLC, not Discovery Kids, LLC. This is not rebranding, it is a reorganization. Federal Chancellor (NightShadow) (talk) 00:16, 21 September 2017 (UTC)
That is just a special-purpose entity to assign the network's IP to the joint venture. That does not mean dissolution. Did carriage contracts carry over? Yes. p.s. keep the discussion on the talk page. ViperSnake151  Talk  03:14, 21 September 2017 (UTC)
Discovery Family is not a Discovery Kids. When will you understand this? Discovery Family claims that it was launched on October 13, 2014. Federal Chancellor (NightShadow) (talk) 10:58, 21 September 2017 (UTC)

Constant edit-warring, POV-pushing, adding unsourced or poorly-sourced content, accompanied by gross PAs. Dr. K. 06:57, 21 September 2017 (UTC) --- In Defense of Lord Aseem:-

This is just a clear biased attempt to malign me when both Khirurg and I have come at a stalemate where will not do anything to each other except without sourced edits. I have told him that he can edit any edit which is not mine and I shall review them and vice versa. We are not edit-warring here except for the first 2 edits. This is a synchronized series of reviews and reversions though aggressive but scholastic. As such this is a false report by Dr. K who has never come on board for discussions or contributed anything to the page except reversions of my Edits. These:-

  1. Consecutive edits made from 14:27, 20 September 2017 (UTC) to 14:34, 20 September 2017 (UTC)
    1. 14:27, 20 September 2017 (UTC) "corrected a edit (not part of contention) with Kansas Bear 's suggestions"
    2. 14:28, 20 September 2017 (UTC) "/* Battle */ formatting"
    3. 14:29, 20 September 2017 (UTC) "/* Battle */ tweaked a sentence position to suit a fluid narrative."
    4. 14:34, 20 September 2017 (UTC) "/* Aftermath and legacy */ he was a emperor not king and chariots played marginal role as stated before."

Are not tendentious or part of any of Edit-Warring but new info added after discussions at Talk page, which the adminstrator here may review as well. Out of Context edits are being brought up merely to give substance to this opportunistic exploitation of the 3-Revert rule.

- ^ Above is not a slanderous remark against the User Khirurg but his edit nature (Although Uncivil is not Personal Attack), which came as a reaction to my sourced edits, molesting original undisputed edits. I later gave sources backing them which were further contended. So I finished the dispute by giving Peter Green as the source.

I hope I have made my stand clear here so far. Rest, Judge wisely. Lord Aseem (talk) 13:52, 21 September 2017 (UTC)

User continues to add information to the article despite being challenged by many users. He has made no attempt at discussing the issue at hand. — nihlus kryik  (talk) 14:41, 21 September 2017 (UTC)

A paragraph dealing with main arguments opposing and supporting euthanasia should of course include the main arguments against euthanasia that are supported by well reliable sources there included. Those users erasing it and truncating the statment that briefly summarize the arguments against euthanasia are instead not claiming anything about letting the larger statement with the main arguments supporting euthanasia. So it is clear the bias that it is being used to revert my edits. Attempts from those users to discuss the edit came AFTER they reverted my changes. And each one of my changes are different as they included the spurces that were initially claimed as lacking to support my change. Claiming that a statement that summarizes arguments against euthanasia is activism is absurd and an assumption of bad faith, as the very paragraph is preciselly dealing with arguments against and pro euthanasia.ClaudioSantos¿? 15:27, 21 September 2017 (UTC)
Claudio, you might avoid a block if you agree to stop reverting and wait for consensus. What's your decision on that? EdJohnston (talk) 15:30, 21 September 2017 (UTC)
Surely you missed that I agreed with the other users in the talk page with the new version that took out both arguments -against and supporting euthanasia- out of the lead, since also those users recognized the previous version was POV balanced pro-euthanasia as I preciselly stated. ClaudioSantos¿? 15:38, 21 September 2017 (UTC)
I want to make it clear to you that you are not permitted to edit war, even if you believe you are right. An editor who repeatedly restores his or her preferred version is edit warring, regardless of whether their edits were justifiable: "but my edits were right, so it wasn't edit warring" is no defense. — nihlus kryik  (talk) 16:12, 21 September 2017 (UTC)
Claudio, I had also friendly warned you here to stop your activism. You are showing the same behaviour that gave you blocks in the past. The Banner talk 16:27, 21 September 2017 (UTC)
If there was a war and if I could agree and also disagree with nemo auditur propriam turpitudinem allegans then at any rate certainly here the casus belli was not other foolness but the very euthanasia. ClaudioSantos¿? 16:38, 21 September 2017 (UTC)

Note to administrators: This can be closed as it seems to have resolved somewhat amicably. Will reopen if necessary. — nihlus kryik  (talk) 16:29, 21 September 2017 (UTC)

Result: User:ClaudioSantos is warned they may be blocked if they continue to revert at Euthanasia unless their change is backed by consensus. Most people who get reported here are sure they are right; this is not a defence. EdJohnston (talk) 16:46, 21 September 2017 (UTC)

Diff of edit warring / 3RR warning:

Diff of attempt to resolve dispute on article talk page: I have made the following comment/update to the article talk page [64]; there was no reply.

Comments:
There is pre-history to this case. It all started when I added the COI and Original Research tags to the article Angelique Rockas last July (and previously in the Greek-language WP article el:Ανζελίκ Ρόκας; the same applies to the article Internationalist Theatre, the company founded and run by Rockas). The result was that an army of users having COI appeared: first the "original" puppet Johanprof (of Amfithea), and then the newcomers Kyrilo36, and Sliverug (all now blocked/locked globally). Their aim was the removal of the COI and Original Research tags I had placeed in the Rockas articles in English-language WP and the Greek-language WP. The cases may be reviewed @ "User:Kyrilo36 reported by User:Chalk19", and "Sockpuppet investigations/Amfithea". User Chlorissima, is a "resurrected" account with global edits only on Rockas and on subjects related to her, and finally started removing the two tags (like the other newcomers, user Kyrilo36 and user Sliverug, have done before) in both English-language WP (from articles Angelique Rockas and Internationalist Theatre), and the Greek-language WP (the edit war there, related as well to additions of more primal sources by user Chlorissima, came to an end -at least for the time being- after sysop Kalogeropoulos reverted the last edit of Chlorissima). The fact that user Chlorissima has COI with her/his subjects need no more proof than her/his global edits; removing the COI tag means COI². Furthermore, the Rockas and Internationalist Theatre articles suffer of lack of secondary sources and of many references to primary sources: correspondence, telegrams, invitations, notes, memos, broadcast transcripts, documents on typewriters etc., unpublished material uploaded on internet (original research), by Rockas probably. User Chlorissima has added even more references to such soucses ([65], [66] ...); her/his claim that the article is not (to a great extent) the product of original research is not true. ——Chalk19 (talk) 18:45, 21 September 2017 (UTC)

PS. Account Chlorissima was created @ Commons on January 5, 2017 but was "sleeping" in all projects till lately. Her/his initial two edits at Commons was the uploading of two photos, right afterwards edited by user Angeliquerock, sockmaster Amfithea, and its master puppet Johanprof: [67], [68]. User Angeliquerock claims that she is Angelique Rockas in person. ——Chalk19 (talk) 20:03, 21 September 2017 (UTC)
Stop x nuvola with clock.svg Blocked – 1 week for warring on article tags placed for reasons of COI. It is reasonable to assume this is one of the socks/meats that have been troubling the articles about Angelique Rockas and the Internationalist Theatre.

The edits were per WP:STACKING. The policy WP:STACKING does not support my edits of reverting obvious stack-ups? The article is at its limit of images without restoring to a gallery. Sufficient images of prominent examples for the subsection are already given, but Pinkbeast insists on adding superfluous images that result in stack-ups. I suggested proposing adding a gallery in the talk section and placing the image there. Tarook97 (talk) 01:07, 22 September 2017 (UTC)

Comments:
This editor may not have violated 3RR, but they seem to have a massive edit-warring complex and attitude across a multitude of articles. At first, I was only involved with them on the Doctor Who article, before I noticed that their issues with warring with other editors instead of discussing was varied across the multiple pages linked. They then posted an attack on my user talk page, where I noted to them that they had been warned by another editor to seek some form of dispute resolution. See that most recent link for further attacks from the editor. These are only attacks directed towards me; I know not what other attacks they have directed towards other editors that they've been involved with. Pinging Number 57 and NZ Footballs Conscience as interested editors as well. -- AlexTW 01:43, 22 September 2017 (UTC)

Comment IP User just didn't agree with my revert of their first edit on the kidnapping page and admittedly I only said the revert was for "removal of content" which is normally fine but they wanted an explanation of why, so I gave links to Wikipedia pages. I do find the users message to be on the attack from what they have left on my talk page and looking at their edit history it appears they are quite combative if someone disagrees with them. Personally I'm ok with the user, but they just need to speak to other users in a more polite way rather than assume offence for something another user has done. NZ Footballs Conscience(talk) 01:50, 22 September 2017 (UTC)

I see that the use who made the spurious RFPP to try to "win" a content dispute is trying to game the system via different means now. 95.145.130.78 (talk) 02:07, 22 September 2017 (UTC)
As can be seen, the anonymous editor has no defense for their actions of edit-warring, and would rather attack the contributions and attempts of dispute resolution from other editors. They are clearly unaware of the WP:EW policy. -- AlexTW 02:08, 22 September 2017 (UTC)
Even after this report, they continue to revert, now having reverted 4 times on the same article. -- AlexTW 02:12, 22 September 2017 (UTC)
No, they reverted three times--as many times as you. And your "however" was, I'm afraid, still improper. Drmies (talk) 02:16, 22 September 2017 (UTC)
The discussion for that is on the talk page, if you disagree with it, not here. That does not excuse the edit-warring. The initial edit is typically included, so four is correct. -- AlexTW 02:18, 22 September 2017 (UTC)
Yeah, what do I know. Remember, Alex, edit warring is edit warring even if you're right. Good luck. Drmies (talk) 02:39, 22 September 2017 (UTC)
If you view the history of the articles, the editor still have a chronic edit-warring complex, no matter if their edits were correct or not. They would rather war then start a civil discussion themselves. -- AlexTW 02:18, 22 September 2017 (UTC)
I would rather people did not undo my basic common sense edits for no reason, and did not make a series of personal attacks against me and edit war to force them into talk pages, and did not repeatedly post messages to my talk page after being asked not to, and did not game the system by make spurious RFPPs. There is no chance of civil discussion with an editor who has an attitude like this.95.145.130.78 (talk) 02:36, 22 September 2017 (UTC)
I dunno about the rest, but the attitude there - that you don't edit other people's talk page comments - is ubiquitous. Please don't do it. Pinkbeast (talk) 02:42, 22 September 2017 (UTC)
If someone reverts your edit, it's up to you to find out why and start a talk page discussion on it. Even if you believe it's basic common sense, you may not have used an edit summary to explain this. Notices on your talk page such as the edit-warring one, {{Please see}}, and the template alerting you of this discussion, they are all necessary. I requested page protection because I believed you were disruptive. You did not provide any discussions or solid reasoning. And you have now been warned by multiple editors against edit-warring, modifying other's comments and your attitude. Perhaps that's a hint. -- AlexTW 02:49, 22 September 2017 (UTC)
If someone reverts your edit, it's up to you to find out why - no. See WP:REVEXP. Edit summaries, always a good practice, are particularly important when reverting. Provide a valid and informative explanation including, if possible, a link to the Wikipedia principle you believe justifies the reversion. Try to remain available for dialogue, especially in the half-day or so after reverting. A reversion is a complete rejection of the work of another editor and if the reversion is not adequately supported then the reverted editor may find it difficult to assume good faith.
I requested page protection because I believed you were disruptive. - then you must lack the judgement to discriminate between productive edits and disruptive edits. Or, you knew the request was spurious and you were trying to game the system. Either way, it's not good.
You did not provide any discussions or solid reasoning. except I did. Why lie? After your gaming of the system, personal attacks against me, refusal to leave my talk page alone and aggressive responses here, I think this is making it ever clearer who is acting with disruptive intent here. 95.145.130.78 (talk) 03:00, 22 September 2017 (UTC)
I'm sitting here, enjoying my holiday. I have no time for attackers and edit-warring kids with attitude. I'll leave it up to the admins. Do try to defend your warring on the other half-dozen pages too. -- AlexTW
Well, the admin says "If someone reverts your edit, it's up to you to find out why" is nonsense. Your first revert was unexplained and unwarranted (your argument is lousy), and since I don't see anyone going over 3R, I'm going to close this. Next time, please remember that a. TW and rollback edits need to be explained in an edit summary and b. editors can be blocked for edit warring even if they're not at 3R. Enjoy. Drmies (talk) 03:30, 22 September 2017 (UTC)
No, they want to be right. Crazy, I know, I don't have that at all, and neither do you, I hope. But then, in some of those cases they are right, and I don't see where they've broken 3RR. But if you want to make this case stick, you shouldn't be the first to revert using TW, which functions like rollback and is guided by the same principles: "Anti-vandalism tools, such as Twinkle, Huggle, and rollback, should not be used to undo good-faith changes unless an appropriate edit summary is used." Drmies (talk) 02:39, 22 September 2017 (UTC)
Given that their edit was solely a removal of content without an edit-summary, I believed that there was no legitimate reason for the edit. Hence the legit revert using Twinkle. -- AlexTW 02:49, 22 September 2017 (UTC)
Perhaps you should have asked why I made the edit, if you didn't understand it. And where, then, was the appropriate edit summary? Why did you not feel like being courteous enough to explain what you were doing? 95.145.130.78 (talk) 03:02, 22 September 2017 (UTC)
I gave a reason for my revert. Read up on Twinkle. You did not give a reason for your edit, or for your edit-warring. -- AlexTW 03:09, 22 September 2017 (UTC)
AlexTheWhovian, that explanation is not acceptable. IP, please mind your manners; your antagonism is going to get you blocked. Drmies (talk) 03:30, 22 September 2017 (UTC)
