Articles on PvXwiki contain both facts and opinions. This is a good thing, as our goal is to be a guide for the game and often both kinds of information are useful to the reader. For example, we have not only raw data on a skill, but also best practices for using that skill, good combinations with other skills, commentary about why the skill is better or worse than another, and builds that incorporate that skill. Such a comprehensive treatment of a subject is one of the strengths of PvXwiki.

We encourage editors to be bold in editing pages, but not all edits are of equal value. An edit may introduce erroneous data, or give poor advice, and these should be removed. We highly value the quality of information in articles, so, by tradition, editors are allowed the freedom to revert a good faith edit of another editor if they believe that edit to be incorrect.

If you find your edit was reverted, take your case to the article's talk page. Explain why you believe your edit was good and belongs in the article. Complete agreement is not necessary: as long as there is a general consensus in favor of your edits, they will eventually be returned to the page. Note that they may not return in precisely the manner you desire, nor will your contributions be immune from being edited mercilessly by others. Strategy and opinions change over time, and new contributors to the PvXwiki bring with them new perspectives.

Breaking the "only revert once" rule can subject the user to banning. This is not an automatic ban: an administrator will examine the user's actions and justification.
