This page in a nutshell: Explain the changes you make in the edit summary, use the corresponding talk page, and don't fight with others. [Nutshell]

The three-revert rule prevents any editor from making more than three reverts on any one page within 24 hours. Total and partial reverts are both counted within the daily limit of three, as are reverts made to different material within the same article. This rule applies per editor, not per account.

The purpose of this policy is to prevent edit warring, which is considered disruptive to the normal editing process. It is not a license to make three reverts on a page every day, but is rather an "electric fence" to stop warring. Making four reverts to a page within a time period just longer than 24 hours can also be considered a violation of this rule. Users that provide large explanations in edit summaries may still be blocked. Disruptive warring using means other than reverting is also covered under this policy; this includes deletion, restoration, uploading, protection, and blocking.

In the following cases, exceptions can be made to this policy to permit reversion as often as needed:

  • Blatant vandalism, such as page blanking.
  • Copyright violations. Such as content taken from Supernaturalwiki.com
  • Obviously libellous material. More controversial facts should be debated on the article's talk page.
  • Personal attacks with no purpose whatsoever.

If the reverts were under good faith, the offenders should be warned before taking action against their accounts.

Notes and Advice Edit

  • Neither side of a revert war is exempt from this rule by default (the changer or the reverter).
  • If you think your edit must be made to the page, try working out a compromise.
