Your note at User talk:

I'm a little confused by what you said to this user and the reason you specified for blocking. The three-revert rule is invoked if an individual editor does three reverts to a page within 24 hours. It's not three reverts total, it's three by the same editor. This editor only did two. Am I missing something? We certainly have discretion to block anyway, but we can't say it's because of 3RR. --Auntof6 (talk) 00:04, 16 February 2019 (UTC)

I may have mis-quoted the 3rr policy. But I looked at the users edits xwiki, and he was engaged in an edit war of sorts. On 3 separate wikis including ours, he was vandalising pages, and had reverted those changes. So while it doesn't meet the letter of the policy, it does meet the spirit of it. That is to stop behavior that is disruptive and or damaging. Should I have just blocked them for xwiki vandalism that they brought here, sure. End result would still be the same. A block to stop the disruption. -- Enfcer (talk) 00:46, 16 February 2019 (UTC)

Oops, forgot to remove those. I've removed them. Thanks -- Enfcer (talk) 22:36, 7 April 2019 (UTC)


how do I pronounce your username? is it EN-FC-ER or EN-FCER? --Thegooduser Let's Talk!ย :) ๐Ÿ 17:10, 17 March 2020 (UTC)


Can i ask a question (not related to the one above)? --Thegooduser Let's Talk!ย :) ๐Ÿ 01:18, 27 March 2020 (UTC)

Thegooduser Whats up? and EN-FCER is how most say it, I don't really have a preference. --Enfcer (talk) 01:21, 27 March 2020 (UTC)
May have used rollback here by accident --Thegooduser Let's Talk!ย :) ๐Ÿ 01:23, 27 March 2020 (UTC)
Thegooduser I would not call that a good faith edit that you rolled back, and it otherwise would have been an inappropriate addition, so I would not give it too much thought. It is a vandalism edit, but not to the level I would have used rollback, but I would not say it is an inappropriate use of it, just make sure if you haven't already leave a warning message. -- Enfcer (talk) 01:30, 27 March 2020 (UTC)
I gave them a level 1 vandalism warning --Thegooduser Let's Talk!ย :) ๐Ÿ 01:31, 27 March 2020 (UTC)
I think we are all good then. -- Enfcer (talk) 01:31, 27 March 2020 (UTC)
Ok, thanks! --Thegooduser Let's Talk!ย :) ๐Ÿ 01:34, 27 March 2020 (UTC)

Adolf AnderssenEdit

Could you extend the length of the semiprotection of Adolf Anderssen? It has been the target of a (banned) editor who is obsessed on the topic for some time already. Thanks!

The last protection was for a month, and was not vandalized for 3 months after the end of that protection. I will keep an eye on it, and if after the week is up, it appears to be getting vandalized again, I will put a lengthy Protection on it. -- Enfcer (talk) 17:03, 2 May 2020 (UTC)

Old Alton Bridge semi-protectionEdit

Hey Enfcer! Would it be possible to semi-protect the Old Alton Bridge article from unregistered users like Donald Trump's article. The page has been getting tons of vandalizing edits with some good users reverting them (must be exhaustive. Take a look at the page's history!). --TDKR Chicago 101 (talk) 09:49, 19 May 2020 (UTC)

@TDKR Chicago 101: The amount of questionable edits are still relatively low. While the article has had excessive amounts in the past, the current amount is relativity low. I have left a message on that users talk page asking them to discuss any changes to that article on the articles talk page, and explaining that Youtube is generally not a reliable source and should not be added. I have added it to my watch list, and will watch if and if needed will apply blocks or protection at the point it becomes necessary. -- Enfcer (talk) 15:21, 19 May 2020 (UTC)
Thank you for the watch out! --TDKR Chicago 101 (talk) 15:22, 19 May 2020 (UTC)
