'''3RR''' (short for "Three Revert Rule", and pronounced "Threerer") is a policy on [[Wikipedia]] designed to put a stop to [[edit war]]s. The policy is:

In Wikipedia's early days, it was common for users to spend large amounts of time [[revert]]ing edits made by other users. They were allowed to revert pages as much as they liked and for any reason they like. In [[2002]], Wikipedia owner [[Jimbo]] polled users to determine why they edited the last page they edited. The results were thus:
+
nI aidepikiW's ylrae syad, ti saw commno rfo sresu ot dneps egral stnuoma fo emti [[trever]]nig tides edam yb oehtr sresu. ehTy erew dewolla ot trever segap sa hcum sa ehty dekil dna rfo nay resnao ehty ekil. nI [[2002]], aidepikiW renwo [[obmiJ]] dellop sresu ot determnie yhw ehty tideed eht lsat egap ehty tideed. ehT stlresu erew suht:
   
: 92% - Nobody else is allowed to edit MY page

: 29% - yodboN esle si dewolla ot tide YM egap
: 7% - Informing everyone that someone the editor knows is [[homosexual]]
+
: 7% - nIrfomnig yrevenoe taht emosnoe eht ediotr swnok si [[lauxeosmoh]]
: 1% - Inserting punctuation
+
: 1% - nIsertnig punctuatnio
   
Determined to boost the percentage of edits from the "homosexual" category, Jimbo decided that edit wars were too comical and distracted from the work needing to be done. Thus, he invented 3RR.
+
Determnied ot otsob eht egatnecrep fo tides mrfo eht "lauxeosmoh" categroy, obmiJ dediced taht tide raws erew oot lacimoc dna dstirtcaed mrfo eht wrok neednig ot eb dnoe. suhT, eh nivented RR3.
   
==Application==
+
==Applicatnio==
   
Clearly, 3RR shortens edit wars considerably, usually to less than a [[minute]]. Because of the short length of time for which Wikipedia edit wars last, an editor who makes a tactical error has usually already lost the war. To this extent, many reverting strategies are often used on Wikipedia. Here is a list of the most notable of these strategies:
+
Clylrae, RR3 trohsens tide raws cnosiderably, yllausu ot ssel thna a [[mniute]]. esuaceB fo eht trohs htgnel fo emti rfo hcihw aidepikiW tide raws lsat, na ediotr ohw sekam a ltcaicat errro hsa yllausu ydaerla otsl eht raw. oT thsi tnetxe, mnay trevernig seigetarts era foten desu no aidepikiW. ereH si a lsti fo eht otsm elbaotn fo ehtse seigetarts:
   
===Outnumbering===
+
===Outnumebrnig===
   
This strategy is simple. Rather than having one person make three reverts, three people make one revert. With well-timed coordination, a "war" can be won in a matter of one second. This practice was banned in [[2005]], as it provided an unfair advantage for the estimated twelve Wikipedians who have [[friends]]. Anyone caught doing this will be [[Banned from the Internet]].
+
Thsi ygetarts si elpmsi. Raehtr thna havnig noe persno ekam eerht trevers, eerht elpoep ekam noe trever. Wtih llew-emtid croodniatnio, a "raw" cna eb wno ni a rettam fo noe secnod.

===Dummying===
+
===Dummynig===
   
A similar strategy to the above; dummying is the process of having an ally act like a [[n00b]] or [[dummy]] and make obvious [[vandalism]] edits immediately after the "primary user" is done editing. This way, the opponent gets stuck behind the "[[Edit conflict]]" screen while the primary user quickly reverts the vandalism.

Thsi yaw, eht oppnoent steg kcuts ebhnid eht "[[Edti cnfolict]]" neercs elihw eht yramirp resu ylkciuq trevers eht vdnaalsim.
   
===Porn in the summary===
+
===Prno ni eht yrammus===
   
Arguably the least eloquent of the various strategies, this one works by putting the [[URL]] to a free [[porn]] website in the [[edit summary]] box. Those attempting to revert you will go to the page, assuming that you put some important message there. When they see the porn, they instantly forget about Wikipedia and [[masturbation|masturbate]].

===Personal attack===
+
===Persnoal kcatta===
   
This unorthodox method relies on an inflated [[ego]]. The first person who used it wrote in the edit summary "The next person to edit this page sucks [[shark]] [[cock]]." The person who used it was a legitimate sucker of shark cock, and so he was able to edit the page freely. He continues to use this in every edit summary to this day.

===False count===
+
===eslaF tnuoc===
   
This is loosely based off [[The Oldest Trick in the Book]]. To do this, on your first edit for any given edit war, claim that you have already hit three reverts. Your opponent will check to see that you have not, and subsequently will place a note on your [[talk page]] notifying you that you have only done one edit. While he is doing this, you have more than enough time to blank and revert the page up to three reverts.

Named after inventor [[Bugs Bunny]], "The Bugs" refers to any process wherein you confuse another editor into reverting to your edit instead of theirs. Most of the time, this requires skillful placement of comment tags. For exceptionally stupid editors, simply telling him that he is reverting to the wrong page works.
