April 2019Edit

Your recent editing history at Kosher wine 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 BRD 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 don't violate the three-revert rule—should your behavior indicate that you intend to continue reverting repeatedly.
I don't know which one of you is right, but you both need to stop reverting and take it to the article's talk page. shoy (reactions) 18:31, 1 April 2019 (UTC)

Yes, although the other editors have been blocked as socks, which brings 3RRNO into play. GoldenRing (talk) 10:13, 2 April 2019 (UTC)

Please comment on Wikipedia:Arbitration/Policy/Proposed amendment (April 2019)Edit

ANEdit

I’ve closed the block review you requested: we do not ordinarily do third party block reviews when an editor has talk page access and knows how to appeal their own block. If they want to appeal it again, they are free to use the normal means. TonyBallioni (talk) 20:11, 16 April 2019 (UTC)

I disagree with your close. They are basically a new editor, someone who hasn't edited in a long time and were chased away. I am bringing the block to the AN for a review/endorsement. As you said, we don't normally do it, but I think this was a case of admin overreach and should be addressed. Sir Joseph (talk) 20:24, 16 April 2019 (UTC)
They already have appealed the block themselves, another administrator reviewed it, and declined to unblock. They clearly know how the process works. I don’t have any opinion on the block itself, but except in the most unusual circumstances, we don’t consider third-party appeals, and you not liking PhilKnight’s decline isn’t really justification for skipping what would ordinarily be five more appeals by the blocked user (2 on-wiki and 3 in UTRS.) You were basically jumping to the very end of the line without any of the normal process playing out, which I think is bad for the project, even if done in good faith.
The other reason is that there’s an open ANI thread about this, and I think splitting it isn’t a great idea. Since the block came from ANI, however, it’s likely appropriate to discuss it there since the issue hasn’t been closed at ANI. I factored this into my closing, but I’ll update the comment at AN to direct people to the ANI thread if they have an opinion. TonyBallioni (talk) 20:32, 16 April 2019 (UTC)
My issue is that it was a bad block to begin with. So what is he supposed to appeal? It's a terrible thing that in order to be unblocked you need to grovel and admit wrongdoing even when you didn't do anything wrong, and in this case, it's clear, at least to me, that he did nothing wrong. Whatever, it's just another day in Wikiland. (and the ANI thread is not about him, it's about the page and it was made clear that there was not going to be an unblock. Sir Joseph (talk) 20:38, 16 April 2019 (UTC)
Agree with you Sir Joseph. The blocking admin hasn't really ever edited at ANI before, and has been nearly absent from the site for the last 6 years. The reviewing admin writes that KeithCu can't assure he will follow policy, but doesn't actually point to where any specific policies were NOT followed. How should inexperienced editors know Wikipedia's policy on Breitbart? Now Keith's in the classic trap where he has to bow down, grovel, and kiss feet for something that he probably didn't understand anyways. Pretty poor showing by our admins. Mr Ernie (talk) 15:14, 17 April 2019 (UTC)
I've been in the same boat, by ex-admin Coffee, who blocked me and incidentally turned down an unblock request, which is against policy, but I also had to grovel and basically lie, and then get unblocked, just to placate these people. It's a shame because what I end up doing is just unwatching tons of pages because I don't want to deal with the hassle. Sir Joseph (talk) 15:40, 17 April 2019 (UTC)
Here's a funny read. Mr Ernie (talk) 17:57, 17 April 2019 (UTC)
My archives is like that as well. Good times! I was also listed as a persona non grata on his take page and was one of the secret users he listed on his secret list that you could only view if you knew how to edit source a certain way. He had that for a short while until he was told to take it down or be blocked, IIRC. Sir Joseph (talk) 18:10, 17 April 2019 (UTC)
