Make discussion love, not edit war.

An edit war occurs when editors who disagree about the content of a page repeatedly override each other's contributions, rather than trying to resolve the disagreement by discussion on the article's talk page or in the Forums. Edit warring is unconstructive and creates animosity between editors, making it harder to reach a consensus.

An edit war is considered a "war" if you revert edits on an article 4 times within 36 hours.

Users who engage in edit wars risk being blocked. Other measures will also include the page or pages in question being fully protected to prevent any editing until the issue is resolved.

If an article is fully protected a topic will be started by the admin who protected the article on the article's talk page to discuss the edit war.

In all situations discussion is should be the norm, not an edit war or admin action (in the form of protection or blocking).
