Edit warring and disrespect to other users

The next time someone tells you to read the trivia guidelines, it's a good idea to do so instead of trying to fight it out because of something that only you believe. You wanted to discuss the trivia on the talk page, and were given two very lengthy counter-arguments, yet somehow you decided that returning to edit-warring rather than offering your own argument was the right decision, and then demanding that that user be blocked on top of that.

You can take the next week to reconsider your actions. --User LordKelvin Signature.png LordKelvin 14:57, 30 April 2018 (UTC)

I first want to know the reason in which I was blocked. LordKelvinblocked me without giving a reason. He also stated that I did not give a reason why I made edits to the article Syringe Gun, but I did (Talk: Syringe Gun). I followed the trivia guidelines, which every other user does. This is a sign that the admins on this wiki are incompetent, blocking people for no reason. Sausagea1000 (talk) 20:19, 1 May 2018 (UTC)

I can't speak for the admins' reasons for blocking, but what I personally believe is that hostility may be a main issue. Outright demanding that someone be blocked and constantly reverting edits without attempting to understand the viewpoint of the other editor can be grounds for blocking. From what I saw, your edits on the Syringe Gun page, even if there was reason behind the edit, were based on a speculative idea that the syringes were filled with poison. It's never been officially stated what they were filled with, at least not to my knowledge. ClockworkSpirit2343 Talk Page 23:49, 1 May 2018 (UTC)
{{Unblock|I have taken time out of my day to make an edit to make this wiki better and someone reverted it. What if you uploaded something like a scientfic work to the internet, someone said it was wrong and changed it. The Syringes are filled with poision or they would not be effective. This is not a fair block}}The preceding unsigned comment was added by Sausagea1000 (talk) • (contribs) 21:26, 2 May 2018‎ (UTC)
Remember, Sausagea1000, you were not blocked not the content of your trivia. You were blocked for edit warring. The accepted pattern is Bold, Revert, Discuss. The moment you reposted a reverted edit without accomplishing consensus in discussion, you broke that rule and you were warring. Blocking is normal for edit warring. You were, at the time, only blocked for a week, so, you had no need to request an unblock.
Look, my first edit was reverted. (Reason: "What terrible trivia."). It was a learning experience. The contract of the wiki is that any edit you make may be edited by anyone else.
Except for sincere tributes, Trivia is about the least important part of the wiki. "Nothing to get hung about, ... (1967)" MIKADO282 oOOOOo oo oo (talk) (To Do) 01:00, 3 May 2018 (UTC)
