Frontierpedia:Edit warring

From Frontierpedia, the TMAFE related encyclopedia
Jump to navigation Jump to search
An example of a severe edit war on an image page.

An edit war occurs when editors who disagree about the content of a page repeatedly override each other's contributions. Editors engaged in an edit war should pursue finding a resolution rather than edit warring. Edit warring is considered unconstructive, creates animosity between editors, makes consensus harder to reach, and causes confusion for readers. Users who engage in edit wars risk being blocked or even banned. An editor who repeatedly restores their preferred version is edit warring, regardless of whether those edits are justifiable. Claiming "My edits were right, so it wasn't edit warring" is not a valid defense.

Exceptions

The following reverts are exempt from the edit-warring policy:

  • Reverting your own actions.
  • Reverting edits to pages in your own user space (talk page or user page).
  • Reverting actions performed by vandals or raiders.

What to do when you see an edit war

Leave a message on WikiSysop's talk page with the "Add topic" button explaining what is going on. Be sure to sign your message with a signature (--~~~~). Signing with just your name is not a proper way of leaving a message. Afterwards, proper edits will be done to the page to resolve the conflict.
