If you check the [history of the page on General Grievous (2008), you will see that there currently is an edit war going on, of which I am a part. You will also see the four similarly-named accounts used by the same person.
The situation is that this person feels General Grievous is a hero and has created several wikis and at least one other website in order to tell his view of the character. That would be fine except he is also going to other wikis that have information on Grievous, such as this one, and attempting to force his viewpoint on those wiki.
Prior attempts to talk with him have failed and to ask him to at least be open to the possibility that others might not see the character as he does. His response is typically to say "Grievous is hero. Fact." and "It's the truth." In addition, he has stated several times on other wikis that he will continue to create new accounts so he can keep making edits.
Please check into this. I will hold off making any further edits to that page so you have time to look into it. Thanks.
Update on my request. The account he was using before, GeneralGrievousHero4Life16, is now globally blocked. Within five hours, he had created a new account, GeneralGrievousHero4Life17, in order to get around the block and to continue forcing his agenda on this wiki. It's been necessary for me to continue with the edit war in order to revert what I now consider deliberate vandalism.
Here are statements made within the past day on the Vader: A Star Wars Theory Fan Series wiki:
"I know I will never stop coming back until the Grievous Hero facts are safel."
"Grievous is a hero fact and I can spread the truth around and people will enjoy..."
in discussing some videos he made with another person: "That's why Grievous kills you and tortures you in my videos. More comming soon! :D"
"Grievous is a portrayed as a hero but Dave filioni's stupid bias tries to portrayl wrong". (Dave Filoni was the showrunner for The Clone Wars TV series.)
"I hate you know.I really do you hope you die slow because you need a wakeup call. My channel will grow and I will become great my with FACTS vs your biased opinions. I will be soon doing something to where you cannot disliking my videos so have fun with that!" "So yeah, I pretty wish you stop and all is God's hands as usual you pathetic little piece of crap." "DIE SLOW MOTHERF*CKER!"
"HAAHAHAH! You're pathetic. Grievous is a hero and you're just biased and can't accept facts! HAHAHAAHAHHA!"
If nothing else, please fully protect the page on the version without his edits. Whether that's permanent or for a shorter amount of time like a year, I leave to you judgement.
Actually, no. This is a case where a person came up with a different point of view about a characters than most other people have. "Headcanon", as it's typically called. And as I said before, that's fine. He's a part of a couple of wikis and has his own website where he talks about that point of view. That can be good because it shows creativity and I wrote a series of blogs about why we need things like this and fan fiction in general.
This isn't an issue of me disliking someone who make a mistake. It's an issue of he's convinced that only he sees The Truth about this character, so it is his mission to force others to see The Truth as well.
To that end, he has done the following:
Created about 20 accounts in order to keep making the edits he feels he must make.
Stated that he will not stop creating new accounts, in order to do this.
Been argumentative and stubborn, to the point of saying that he wants to see other people die and is making videos that depict killing them.
So what I've been asking is for you to take a look at the situation and determine if a block on this person and/or protecting the pages about General Grievous is warranted to prevent further disruption from new accounts that this person has repeatedly stated they will create. I believe that I have presented enough reasons in a calm and respectful manner to show that it is.
I found two of his accounts not blocked already for arguments on wanting to see life threatening deaths of people and banned them from here for it. Of course nobody likes to see gore, stabbings, murderings, nothing against anyone and to depict such violence. Thanks for telling me about him.
