I gave an IP a warning (seen here) after five nonsense edits to talk pages. However than a different [IP] arrived and removed my warning. I honestly do not know what is the appropriate action at this point is so I'll rely on the administrators experience in this situation. I'll ignore this issue as I've already voiced my opinion on giving the warning. --AKB Talk Contribs Email 18:35, 13 March 2011 (UTC)

Since the edits seem to have been made in good faith, just with a lack of understanding of what a wiki is about, I've changed the official warning to a friendly warning that's more specific to the anon's edits. Robin Hoodtalk 22:27, 13 March 2011 (UTC)
I chose to wait and see if any more trouble came our way from the anon, and it died out, as usual. I agree with RH70 at the same time; the additions may have triggered all the "nonsense"-alerts, but in theory it was more experimental than anything else. Just remember this; when you are at the beginning of an edit war it is sometimes useful to take a deep breath and wait - simply because anons like that tend to lose interest fairly quickly - and then you can revert everything in peace, without them even knowing it. --Krusty 22:52, 13 March 2011 (UTC)
Yeah I should of assumed good faith. I need to spend more times on the forums to get used to there style (which is what this was closer to on reflection). Sorry for bringing this up here, I'll try to use the notices more often. --AKB Talk Contribs Email 23:00, 13 March 2011 (UTC)
