Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard/Edit warring

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 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.

  • @Iseptuelenta:, you are also edit warring; you are restoring disputed unsourced content to a WP:BLP. I've removed the BLP violations, as well as the unsourced promotional material added by Remembernowandnow833. If either of you edit the article to add or restore unsourced or poorly sourced content, it will likely lead to a block of your account. And no, IMDb is not a reliable source.-- Jezebel's Ponyobons mots 22:35, 12 September 2019 (UTC)
  • @Ponyo: I added relevant info about Bella Dayne, including references, to her Talk page. Iseptuelenta (talk) 09:07, 13 September 2019 (UTC)

@Iseptuelenta: You are now edit warring with me, the administrator reviewing your report, to restore the disputed content that was remove per WP:BLP. I left clear instructions on the article talk page as to how to proceed; please don't continue reverting.-- Jezebel's Ponyobons mots 18:35, 13 September 2019 (UTC)

I am pleased to see the quick action taken here, but would just like to add something to the discussion. On the user's Talk page I politely drew their attention to the relevant part of our MOS, Wikipedia:Naming conventions (Football in Australia), and received the following reply - "Are you drunk or jut stupid? Please read my comments on the actual page sometimes it takes a person bold enough to break conventions to deal with thi stupidity. As I said above this is not the page for this discussion. Take me to ANI. I dare you." Apart from wondering if a 24 hour block will solve the problem, I don't think I need to make further comment. HiLo48 (talk) 04:34, 13 September 2019 (UTC)

HiLo48, that was one of several examples of incivility by this IP. I trust that if this editor returns after the 24 hours are up this will not continue. If it does, feel free to ping me or report it to AIV. No one should have to be subjected to that. – bradv🍁 04:38, 13 September 2019 (UTC)

It looks like the IP has been at it[23] for a while when it comes to their disruptive editing. Lupin VII (talk) 23:12, 13 September 2019 (UTC)

WP:BOOMERANG; I don't think the IP is being disruptive in this case. User:BigDwiki is editing against two editors (myself and the IP). The sections BigDwiki insists on reinstating violate several policies, including WP:NOTNEWS, WP:UNDUE, and WP:SYNTH (e.g.; " [24] "The university was widely criticized for the arrests and subsequent publicity" - No sources to support "widely criticized," just one opinion column.

This will be a special case, I actually want to report two users if I can, who I strongly believe are the same person. The reason for the report of the accounts is, edit warring, removing sourced material and adding POV. To the article Gulen Movement. I initially reported them as an sock poppet[39], but since the one of the accounts started to edit war I felt the urge to contact the administrators on this board. Thanks.

The two users are: User:Frank Bright and User:Gardendr who had been inactive since 2017, and started making the same changes on the same article on the same day... Bill497 (talk) 10:41, 14 September 2019 (UTC)

Looks like the user asked me to post here in his last revert. As per WP:3RR: "An editor must not perform more than three reverts on a single page—whether involving the same or different material—within a 24-hour period. An edit or a series of consecutive edits that undoes other editors' actions—whether in whole or in part—counts as a revert." and he undid my work four times and then explicitly called out WP:3RR in the fourth edit. Kind of a head-scratcher as he's also posting to my talk at the same time about this but it's clearly him undoing edits I made on this page four times in 24 hours and then evidently asking me to post here. ―Justin (koavf)TCM 00:15, 15 September 2019 (UTC)

This is dumb. How about just redirecting the talk page like we do for all other redirects? In any case, Pictogram voting x.svg No violationbradv🍁 02:12, 15 September 2019 (UTC)
Bradv, Many talk pages are not redirected. See Category:Redirect-Class articles and the tens of thousands of articles there. Seems like it's four instances of undoing my work in 24 hours--what am I missing? ―Justin (koavf)TCM 03:38, 15 September 2019 (UTC)
As Bradv, says this argument is just dumb. Koafv showed that he was not interested in anything but making a point, rather than serving any useful purpose at WP with this edit. He wanted to add a redundant tag, but didn't 'approve' of my assessment of that tag.
For the record, I am editing these redirects in the same way for a number of years and and have only had one person who so adamently beleives I am wrong, Koafv. Go figure! Maybe I should have raised the complaint. It was certainly my right to do so. --Richhoncho (talk) 09:51, 15 September 2019 (UTC)

Comments:
The problem started with Special:Contributions/66.235.26.174 edit warring against myself and Ianmacm to remove a very relevant and prominent study from the lead section. IP 66.235.26.174 soon found his old username Dharmabumstead and resumed edit warring under that account. A talk page discussion raised worthy points but the consensus remained in place. Dharmabumstead kept edit warring, racking up five reverts in one day despite many warnings. Binksternet (talk) 00:41, 15 September 2019 (UTC)

Binksternet racked up nearly as many reverts in the same period of time. His reason for specifically including a reference to that study in the lead of the article seems to be based entirely on his own opinion. After I supplied sources indicating that the study in question was indeed flawed and non-conclusive in the talk page, per his demands, he went ahead and reverted my changes (without comment, initially) without any further discussion or consensus as soon as the page became unlocked. I've asked for dispute resolution on this.Dharmabumstead (talk) 01:10, 15 September 2019 (UTC)

Comments:
The lead of the Super Audio CD page has a reference to a study (discussed at length elsewhere in the article) that I believe should not be in the lead, for reasons discussed extensively in both my edit comments and in the talk page. I tried simply removing the reference from the lead, but one editor in particular seems quite intent on leaving the reference in because he insists it's "CRITICALLY IMPORTANT" to the history of SACD and is engaging in edit warring to get his way. There's a healthy discussion going on on the talk page, but he's not added anything to it and simply reverted my changes again today without comment as soon as the page was unlocked. I've requested WP:DRN on this.

You were advised by me using the standard 3RR template last night. For the record, so was Koncorde, but from what I can see you are the protagonist. You need to stick by the rules. So until a talk page agreement is reached please stop adding the same disputed content. FWIW, Wikiprojects are not the arbiter of acceptable article content. No matter how much they attempt to enforce their narrowly established policy objectives, it cannot trump the established content policies. Leaky caldron (talk) 11:57, 15 September 2019 (UTC)
I have explained multiple times why the content is not appropriate, and have assisted the user in correctly formatting the information into new sections and correcting grammatical errors and / or improving its encyclopedic quality both on Sunderland AFC and associated articles to try and demonstrate what should or could be included. The user is only concerned with circumventing the outcome of an RfC that was started explicitly because he was adding such sections.
Per the RfC that was held over on the Football talk page it was made abundantly clear that the inclusion of named individuals on an article should only be done when their support has had a material impact on the fortunes of that club, in which case their name should appear in a prose section discussing their impact on the club rather than as part of a list. Maxim has ignored this consensus and continues to push pointy edits. Per Leaky Cauldron, the RfC is not the 'arbiter' but it is there to establish a consensus on what is appropriate, necessary. Our decision making is founded in the principles of WP:TRIVIA and other established basics of Wikipedia editing and always has been. Koncorde (talk) 12:09, 15 September 2019 (UTC)
Additional comment, I didn't add the 3RR. Leaky did, although I was about to also. My edits were collaborative in making adjustments to the changed content on occasions. It is not about "frightening" anyone, if I was going to do that I would have come here first or gone to the Admin Noticeboard for sockpuppet investigation. Koncorde (talk) 12:11, 15 September 2019 (UTC)
Reviewing the edits in question, I believe it will be clear to any reviewing that I have left clear edit summaries, and that the edits were to distinct areas about distinct information until the last revert, and that also the attempts to resolve the "dispute" existed only subsequent to Leaky applying the warning. Koncorde (talk) 12:34, 15 September 2019 (UTC)
  • Result: User:Maxim.il89 is warned they may blocked if they revert again unless they first get consensus on a talk page. The RfC at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Football#RFC: Celebrity fans shows that 16 of those voting are in favor of "Only significant supporters in prose". This is against including the kind of fan information that Maimil89 has been reverting to include. The text that the 16 people favor is "Supporters should only be mentioned in the article on the club when their support has had a material impact on the fortunes of that club, in which case their name should appear in a prose section discussing their impact on the club rather than as part of a list." EdJohnston (talk) 16:24, 15 September 2019 (UTC)
What kind of "result" is that? You are correct in saying that those in the consensus said that "Only significant supporters in prose" should be added, and that's what I'm doing now. I'm not adding Stewart from Eurythmics, even though his a fan, but only those who helped establish the Sunderland AFC charity. That's pretty significant!
It's not just a list of names. I mean, the guy didn't even bother entering the talk page, whereas I did.
I was told Wikipedia discriminates against new users, but this is a joke. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Maxim.il89 (talkcontribs) 18:23, 15 September 2019 (UTC)
If your changes have consensus, it should be easy to find at least one person who will express agreement with you at Talk:Sunderland A.F.C.. It's good that you are participating there, but nobody supports you yet. EdJohnston (talk) 19:56, 15 September 2019 (UTC)

The user is moving the page without get consensus and he is edit warring to keep his version. The name Uruguayan Portuguese is the name used by authors in the cited sources, while Portuñol is the name used by some locals. Also, 'Riverense' is not the only variation of the dialect.--Luizdl Talk 18:12, 15 September 2019 (UTC)

The user does not take into account that the term Riverense Portuñol is also used by the same sources. He does not take into account either that the article was moved by the same user in 2015 with no consensus at all; I was simply getting the old name back, but he started edit warring and trying to impose his will like he did four years ago. --Bankster (talk) 18:17, 15 September 2019 (UTC)

The page has undergone several "undid revisions" in a period of 24 hours as performed by the recently registered user IvatanWiki in several sections of the same article, but with special attention to the part relevant to the interpretation of the Carolyn Brewer source. I have stopped engaging with the edits after many of my modifications were undone by IvatanWiki. I'd like to know what measures can be done to prevent the edit warring. I am also attempting to reason with the newly-registered contributor in his talk page but his reply is more or less the same as in the summary of his edits. Stricnina (talk) 21:57, 15 September 2019 (UTC)

Response:
The revision history for Philippine mythology will show that the revisions I made were appropriate and without personal connotations. Stricnina's actions of reverting properly sourced materials is against Wikipedia's policy. Despite this, Stricnina reported my account for the properly sourced edits I made, which Stricnina tried to replace with statements that are not accurate and have personal connotations instead of facts sourced from respected sources. Additionally, there is no need for an 'interpretation' on the Carolyn Brewer source, as the statements used from the source and inputted in the article were exactly what the source stated. No personal connotations, no personal interpretation. Plain language from the source itself. Also, this "response" section, for some reason, is being deleted in this page. IvatanWiki (talk) —Preceding undated comment added 22:28, 15 September 2019 (UTC)

@IvatanWiki: Which of the specific exemptions to WP:3RR do you think applies to your edits? It appears that you and Stricnina have a content disupte, not that either of you is editing in bad faith. —C.Fred (talk) 22:38, 15 September 2019 (UTC)
