FANDOM


Nuvola apps important You currently appear to be engaged in an edit war. Users are expected to collaborate with others, to avoid editing disruptively, and to try to reach a consensus rather than repeatedly undoing other users' edits once it is known that there is a disagreement.
Please be particularly aware that:

  1. Edit warring is disruptive regardless of how many reverts you have made.
  2. You should not edit war even if you believe you are right.

If you find yourself in an editing dispute, use the article's talk page to discuss controversial changes; work towards a version that represents consensus among editors. You can post a request for help at the administrators' noticeboard. In some cases it may be appropriate to request temporary page protection. If you engage in an edit war, you may be blocked from editing.

Template documentation (for the above template, sometimes hidden or invisible)

Description

This is a pre-written warning message intended for users who are engaged in an edit war. Before issuing this warning, consider using {{Uw-3rr}}, which has softer wording for those who may not be aware that edit warring is a blockable offense.

Usage

First, before using this template, read the warning message carefully to make sure that you are using the correct template for the job. If the template doesn't seem quite suited for the current situation, either find another warning template to use, or leave a handwritten message rather than using a template.

If you have decided to use this warning template, edit the user talk page of the user. Create a Level 2 heading with the current month, followed by the current year. If one already exists, do not create a new heading, and instead file all additional warnings under that heading.

If your calendar is broken, here's the current month and year: April 2020. (Update)

If you're using the source editor, here's the wikitext (Update):

==April 2020==

Then, substitute the template. You substitute a template by adding subst: between the initial curly brackets and the template name. For example, to substitute this template, do the following:

{{subst:Template:Uw-ew}}

If you want to reference a specific page the user edited, you can add the full page title of the the page in question to the first optional parameter. For example, to reference the page Foo:

{{subst:Template:Uw-ew | Foo }}

Do not wikilink; this template will do it for you.

If the template message isn't enough, you can also append an additional optional comment.

{{subst:Template:Uw-ew | Foo | Your custom message here }}

Important
Do not insert characters used in template parameter usage, such as = (equal signs) or | (pipes). This includes URLs, such as the URLs of diffs. Doing so will break the template, and your custom message may not appear. Use Special:Diff to link to diffs, or replace = and | with {{=}} and {{!}}, respectively.

If you want to leave a custom message without linking to a page, do the following:

{{subst:Template:Uw-ew | 2 = Your custom message here}}

You may now save your edit. You do not need to insert your signature, as this template will do it for you.
