Keep in mind that these policies are ultimately guidelines. If it's found that a policy restricts something that the reason the policy was created didn't intend to restrict, then the policy should be changed.

The Three-revert rule (or 3RR) is an official policy which applies to all members of Narutopedia.


This policy applies to editing, uploading images, repeatedly moving, renaming, deleting, undeleting, or recreating a page.

The policy states that an editor must not perform more than three reversions of another specific user on a single Narutopedia article within 12 hours of their first reversion of a specific user. Any reversions beyond this limit should be performed by somebody else, to serve the vital purpose of showing that the community at large is in agreement over which of two competing versions is correct. Violations of the three-revert policy may be met with a block of up to 24 hours.

Chronic offenders may be subject to longer bans from administrators. Remember, this situation can be avoided by sticking with the pre-revert war revision of the page and discussing it on the talk page.


The fact that users may be blocked for excessive reverting does not imply that they will be blocked. The admins are under no obligation to block a user for breaking the 3RR, for instance if they see that the problem has been resolved in another manner. This policy does NOT apply to the reversion of indisputable vandalism, blatant speculation or Wikia TOU violations.

  • Indisputable vandalism is any combination of either the removal of valid content or the insertion of invalid content with the intent to compromise the content of the article.

Edit Summary

When reverting an edit, please do not use the edit summary to discuss the reverted content. If someone reverts your edit and gives an explanation as to why they reverted it, the next step should be to take it to the talk page of the article.
