What caused the edit problem on U.S. Route 14 in Wyoming?Edit

NASCARfan0548  00:47, 9 January 2020 (UTC)

I haven't got a clue. I thought it might've been something you did, but then I looked back through the history, and considered that it might've been one of 420Traveler's edits. Now I doubt it's even that. ---------User:DanTD (talk) 00:49, 9 January 2020 (UTC)

I never started an edit war. I added the map then fixed it, then Nascarfan0548 readded it. So how can you even suggest its my fault? i cant control what other users do. 420Traveler (talk) 01:57, 9 January 2020 (UTC)

All I was doing was importing a Wikidata short description. NASCARfan0548  02:26, 9 January 2020 (UTC)

And I never said anything about an edit war. I just saw some malfunctions caused by some of the most recent edits, tried to fix them, and failed I didn't know who or what was causing them. -------User:DanTD (talk) 03:05, 9 January 2020 (UTC)

The Chick tract LisaEdit

So far we have no reliable source as to whether the purported Chick tract Lisa actually exists, or whether what you found is a mere parody/imitation of a Chick tract, possibly inspired by the song. The source you provided looks like somebody's blog, so I reverted your edit. --Orange Mike | Talk 15:51, 17 May 2020 (UTC)

I wish I could believe that, but sadly that's not the case. Should I take it up on the talk page there, or would you mind taking the links from here? ---------User:DanTD (talk) 15:59, 17 May 2020 (UTC)
Okay, the first link (even if it is a self-published source) tells us that he did something called Lisa (presumably a tract) linking child sexual abuse and porn. The second, though, is a link to an anonymous Wordpress blog by somebody who despises Chick, and can't remotely be treated as a reliable source. I'd say you could probably re-write the entry, as long as there are no unsourced assertions like "Chick himself repudiated this one." --Orange Mike | Talk 19:20, 17 May 2020 (UTC)
Obviously the WordPress blogger despises Chick. But it actually shows the tract. So we've got the bias on one part, and the evidence on the other. ---------User:DanTD (talk) 11:12, 19 May 2020 (UTC)

Nomination of Canopy express for deletionEdit

 

A discussion is taking place as to whether the article Canopy express is suitable for inclusion in Wikipedia according to Wikipedia's policies and guidelines or whether it should be deleted.

The article will be discussed at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Canopy express until a consensus is reached, and anyone, including you, is welcome to contribute to the discussion. The nomination will explain the policies and guidelines which are of concern. The discussion focuses on high-quality evidence and our policies and guidelines.

Users may edit the article during the discussion, including to improve the article to address concerns raised in the discussion. However, do not remove the article-for-deletion notice from the top of the article. Guy (help! - typo?) 07:45, 8 September 2020 (UTC)

September 2020Edit

Your recent editing history at Canopy express shows that you are currently engaged in an edit war; that means that you are repeatedly changing content back to how you think it should be, when you have seen that other editors disagree. To resolve the content dispute, please do not revert or change the edits of others when you are reverted. Instead of reverting, please use the talk page to work toward making a version that represents consensus among editors. The best practice at this stage is to discuss, not edit-war. See the bold, revert, discuss cycle for how this is done. If discussions reach an impasse, you can then post a request for help at a relevant noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. In some cases, you may wish to request temporary page protection.

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 do not violate the three-revert rule—should your behavior indicate that you intend to continue reverting repeatedly. --Guy Macon (talk) 17:47, 19 September 2020 (UTC)

That was an arrogant thing to do, Guy. Using two of your own user pages to dupe me into an edit war. The first problem is that you're ignoring the content of those links. The second is that you ignore the fact that I didn't use them as reference links. I tried to explain the benefit of those links to you in a peaceful manner, and instead, you snuck another user page to invalidate my efforts. From this point on, remember this is a problem that you created, not I.
Also for the record, I agree with your invalidation of many of the other sources you mentioned on your administrator's page. ---------User:DanTD (talk) 19:15, 19 September 2020 (UTC)
DanTD, you know there are two Guys here, right? Me (JzG) and Guy Macon? We are different people. Guy (help! - typo?) 21:19, 19 September 2020 (UTC)
Originally I thought so, but I started to suspect the two of you might be one in the same and using the other as WP:Sockpuppetry, and possibly using administrator's status to flaunt that rule. I apologize for this, but not the edits. I still believe them to be valid. ---------User:DanTD (talk) 21:32, 19 September 2020 (UTC)
Here is the edit where the WMF listed my name as being one of the users who have proven their identity.[1] (I needed to prove my ID because I was on the commission that monitors Arbcom elections and looks for cheating that year.)
Also, there is no "I am allowed to edit war because I am right" rule. I'm just saying. --Guy Macon (talk) 22:38, 19 September 2020 (UTC)
Well, you and JzG are applying reference rules towards external links, and I've been trying to avoid an edit war. -------User:DanTD (talk) 12:20, 20 September 2020 (UTC)
Try harder.[2][3][4] --Guy Macon (talk) 12:50, 20 September 2020 (UTC)
