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.

You must notify any user you have reported.

You may use {{subst:An3-notice}} ~~~~ to do so.


Feed-icon.svg You can subscribe to a web feed of this page in either RSS or Atom format.

Additional notes
  • 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.

Sections older than 48 hours are archived by Lowercase sigmabot III.

Diff of attempt to resolve dispute on article talk page: User_talk:Saturnpilot#Bradley_International_Airport and here User_talk:Markvs88#Bradley_International_Airport, where Saturnpilot admits he's re-adding it "because he knows people so it's true." The editor did try to provide a blog as a source, which was irrelevant as it's non-authoritative.

Warning ignored. Has been blocked before. I'm filing a report mere hours after my last report on another user on the same article, but it's necessary because a WP:RPP request was denied. wumbolo ^^^ 23:35, 17 March 2019 (UTC)

You may hate the fact that song and phrase don't have origin in Serbia, but that still remains a fact. Song is from Bosnia & Herzegovina and the phrase is from English language Internet community. You and your friends should stop with obvious anti-Serb bias and with disruptive editing. Thanks. BobNesh (talk) 23:50, 17 March 2019 (UTC)

This user replaced a photo I originally put on the article three hours later with a duplicate. Such files are subject to speedy deletion on the commons. Also claims I was "lying" and that my reasoning for removing the duplicate was "nonsense" and in "bad faith". This is not the only instance of this behavior occurring between this user and others who contribute images to article of the same interest, and I can provide evidence if requested. Supportstorm (talk) 03:04, 18 March 2019 (UTC)

How can a much larger image with much more details be considered as a duplicate? I should have reported you earlier for your insults. 🐱💬 03:13, 18 March 2019 (UTC)

Update, this user overrode my file after the duplicate was deleted here. I'm really just annoyed by this whole thing. Meow you need to stop this elitism. I've never insulted you once. There was literally no issue with quality of the image since I ran it through specialized software that uses the same algorithm that NASA uses to create a lossless image, fixed shape as recommend by you here, and saved to the highest quality allowed using jpg compression. Admins, this is a common frustration I encounter with this user when uploading current tropical cyclone images. Supportstorm (talk) 07:03, 18 March 2019 (UTC)

This is incredibly silly. First, technical matter, you provided links to revisions. Provide links to diffs next time. Second, Meow's image is obviously not a duplicate, so stop saying it is. It's not scaled down either. If you can't even get right what you're edit warring over, I am definitely not inclined to take any administrative action. And I'm certainly not inclined to give you any credit simply because you uploaded first. If there is some regular pattern of bad behavior going on, you'll need to gather diffs to demonstrate that and present it at WP:ANI. But if you want to continue arguing over this bike shed, go try some dispute resolution. And @Meow:: just as an FYI, you can always use {{Keep local}} if you need to, if commons admins are deleting images for reasons that don't actually apply. Someguy1221 (talk) 08:46, 18 March 2019 (UTC)
Thank you for your time. I believe I fixed the diff misunderstanding, sorry about not having that in order this time around. The focus of the edits was around trivial differences in the image and I agree it was, however I politely disagree with your diagnoses. The images were similar enough to be duplicates and to say upload order doesn't matter in this instance is unfair. I still respect your decision regardless. I'll take your advice and move this to ANI, once I gather diffs, since attempts at dispute resolution in the past didn't come across effectively with Meow, hence why bringing the issue here was considered insulting to her.

Comments:

  • This is truly a candidate for WP:LAME. For the past week, a consistent edit war has taken place between IndianBio and Itsbydesign (with Begoon recently joining in) The is literally over an image and it doesn't make any sense from the outside looking in. On 3/7/2019, Itsbydesign uploaded a poster image that aligns with the tour title. 5 hours later, it was reverted by IndianBio for no reason beyond no liking the image (although I believe its more geared to WP:OWN. IndianBio then follows this with reverted every single edit made by Itsbydesign. Of course, Itsbydesign comes in few days later and reverts those edits. While he/she cites reasons for changing the image(s), IndianBio still reverts the edits. Begoon comes in and add fuel to the flames by blindly reverting edits with zero explanation. This is obviously something that is going to continue regardless of who says what. This is 3 toddlers throwing a hissy fit for control. An admin needs to step in, make a decision and make sure all 3 adhere.2601:280:C300:7A0:D0EB:CD77:6488:8A3 (talk) 11:26, 18 March 2019 (UTC)
How many bets that the IP is actually Itsbydesign? The user has been reverted number of times by me, Chrishm21, Begoon for continuously edit warring across articles by uploading images, moving article page without WP:RM. Please see the Itsbydesign (talk · contribs)'s talk page which is littered by numerous warnings over image related vandalism. Funny thing, lets consider the article Drowned World Tour. uploaded, got reverted by Chrishm21, then reverted again. Not only that, keeps on moving pages without first going through WP:RM or gaining consensus. That's where the reversion comes. The user was already warned and asked to discuss the image uploads and moves, but failed to do so and resorted to EW. Oh and I am willing to bait that the IP is a WP:DUCK. —IB [ Poke ] 11:36, 18 March 2019 (UTC)
To tbe reviewing admin, please note that not only 2601:280:C300:7A0:D0EB:CD77:6488:8A3 (talk · contribs · WHOIS) but I can also see that another IP was used to disrupt further, 2601:280:C300:7A0:5CB:838F:9AEB:A7B5 (talk · contribs · WHOIS).

  • Every edit I made, to several articles was explained in the edit summary: 'picture does not exist', which at the time they did not. The images were subsequently uploaded and my edits were reverted. -- Begoon 12:18, 18 March 2019 (UTC)
  • (talk page stalker) I am tending to agree with IndianBio on the WP:DUCK theory. Given the recent edit history, and continued edit-warring by Itsbydesign is glaring. There seems to be an underlying issue of WP:OWN on that users behalf. Their repeated page moves, despite WP:BRD, seem to be their own attempt of owning the edits. Also, a quick online search proves that both anonymous editors (as pointed out by Indianbio) belong to the same location and provider. livelikemusic talk! 13:18, 18 March 2019 (UTC)
  • I believe in following policy to the letter. All of my edits are justified and explained either with a source I included or referencing a source already within the text of the article. This "debate" is over poster art, which fails the guidelines for non-copyrighted event images. Cropping out any aspect of a non-free image is not allowed. Same goes with article titles. I always reference the policy and provided a source when I edit the article. If I feel my edits are being blindly reverted for negative reasons (which is how I feel in this situation), I will defend my edits until other sources or sound reasoning is brought to my attention. Saying things like: "It's always been this way", "This is what 'we' agreed upon", is not hepful to the conversation and shows more guise of ownership than any edit I've made. This all over images...non-free images. I didn't know a roundtable discussion was needed over which non-free image was better than others. Again, I stand by all my edits and I am than happy to engage in a conversation but I will not engage in a one sided talk with a "stan". I am very open to others editing articles but the edit has be be justified, verifiable and within policy.Itsbydesign (talk) 14:44, 18 March 2019 (UTC)
    • You kept on edit warring across multiple articles. If a change is needed its your onus to discuss when you are being reverted by multiple users across the encyclopedia. Calling other users as "stan" and all is personal attack. —IB [ Poke ] 15:12, 18 March 2019 (UTC)
      • And you did the same. Do not act all high and mighty now that you're being scolded. As discussed on the talk page, you have already shown that you do not want to have a conversation on this matter. I will not waste my time on a one-sided conversation. If you want to have a civil conversation down the line, I will be happy to engage. But, I do not feel you want to, in this matter. So, I chose to turn the other cheek and move on.Itsbydesign (talk) 02:53, 19 March 2019 (UTC)
  • Result: No admin action, but general concern. Unclear how convinced we should be by a list of seven reverts by four different people. And by the submission of an edit warring report by a dynamic IP who joins in the reverting but doesn't appear to use any talk pages for discussion. There is an underlying problem here, with the page moves and the image changes, and if it continues without waiting for consensus some admin action appears likely. The next person who changes any of these images (without prior consensus) will be in the hot seat. EdJohnston (talk) 03:54, 19 March 2019 (UTC)

Also edit warring at Patrick Moore (consultant). No posts to either talk page. Bradv🍁 15:38, 18 March 2019 (UTC)

Npsaltos62 has committed to seek sources and consensus for their edits here. It would have been nice if that commitment had been made before the 3RR report, but this can likely be closed without further action. Bradv🍁 16:06, 18 March 2019 (UTC)

Comments:The editor has taken an aggressive style against me and other editors. They have previously been warned about this by an administrator ([[24]]). They have failed to engage in talk on the latest point which is to insist on the inclusion of the word "false" - even though this is not supported by the wider evidence (which has been repeatedly removed, and is bad grammar - violating the 3RR to do so. Contaldo80 (talk) 01:26, 19 March 2019 (UTC)

Pictogram voting x.svg No violation – there must be four or more reverts within a 24 hour period for the 3-Revert Rule to apply; the links you have provided do not meet these criteria. If I had to pick which one of you had been the least civil in the dispute, it would be you, Contaldo. Play nice. Ritchie333 (talk) (cont) 11:25, 19 March 2019 (UTC)
Hang on - here there is an editor who repeatedly insults a number of other editors and an administrator, who fails to engage constructively in discussions on the talk page, removes sourced material with no explanation, rejects any attempts at compromise, and is determined to push a non-neutral agenda. I am sure you are right that the confusingly names three-revert rule requires four reverts. But to then rap me over the knuckles for being uncivil is somewhat disappointing. Why do I bother I ask myself. Contaldo80 (talk) 00:14, 21 March 2019 (UTC)

Long-term persistent edit warring — removal of links against consensus. User removed warning from their talk page. Nowak Kowalski (talk) 17:49, 19 March 2019 (UTC)

@Nowak Kowalski: Where and when was this consensus reached?--Bbb23 (talk) 20:15, 19 March 2019 (UTC)
  • Comment. Entry was added by IP with this diff, and I had a general cleanup with this diff clearing out all sorts of inappropriate content, including the link in question. IP then got incredibly hostile with this diff and this diff, and refused to enter into WP:BRD discussions, with this entry on the talk page when it was suggested it was taken there. The template was then protected, with the above user adding it back in the minute it was unprotected, and slapping me with a edit war template without any attempt to discuss first at the template talk page. Per WP:BRD disputed additions should be discussed. --woodensuperman 09:07, 20 March 2019 (UTC)
User:Woodensuperman, you are constantly removing James Marsh (artist) from this template, as the six diffs provided above will attest. You even advised the IP to use talk back on March 4. Have you ever used the talk page yourself? EdJohnston (talk) 14:29, 20 March 2019 (UTC)
Hi Ed, per WP:BRD the onus is on the person making the controversial edit (in this case the addition of a cover artist, see this edit) to instigate the discussion. When this was suggested to the IP, this was the response, not to mention the two previous "fuck you"s from the edit summary, so they clearly did not want to discuss. The template was protected for this reason, to stop the IP continually adding without discussion. I would also like to address the disingenuous nomination here. There has not been "long-term persistent edit warring", neither has there been "removal of links against consensus". This is a recent addition, made without consensus. However, I have now started a discussion on the talk page, and would suggest that the entry is not re-added until a case for inclusion has been made and consensus has been reached. --woodensuperman 14:55, 20 March 2019 (UTC)

User is reverting poorly-sourced negative information into the biography of a living person, has blanked warnings and refuses to comply with clear policy mandates relating to claims about living people. NorthBySouthBaranof (talk) 03:28, 20 March 2019 (UTC)

What's the proper way to source the official court documents when they can't be directly linked? BLDM (talk) 03:31, 20 March 2019 (UTC)
Again, unless there's a reliable secondary source reporting on this lawsuit, it cannot be included, period, end of sentence. Please read WP:BLPPRIMARY, as I posted on your talk page (which you just blanked), Do not use trial transcripts and other court records, or other public documents, to support assertions about a living person. That's it. End of story. NorthBySouthBaranof (talk) 03:33, 20 March 2019 (UTC)
Specifically, the edit is a reference to a purported lawsuit against the article subject, supported only by a press release by the law firm which filed the lawsuit and a link to the lawsuit itself. This is clearly insufficient sourcing per WP:BLP and specifically WP:BLPPRIMARY; absent any reliable secondary source discussing the issue, it does not belong in Wheeler's biography. BLDM has not responded to queries, but appears to reject this basic foundational policy. NorthBySouthBaranof (talk) 03:33, 20 March 2019 (UTC)

  • After a review, I've blocked both editors 48 hours for edit warring on multiple articles, while simultaneously reporting the other editor for edit warring (a pet peeve of mine). Both are also misusing the term "vandalism". No talk page posts by either editor. If the edit warring resumes after the block expires, the next block will be for much longer.
