How do I undo someone else's edit?:

In the Character page for "Land of Oz", I fixed a lot of edits as I described in my history page, but then Sheilak suddenly undid ALL of my edits! Why did he do that?! All I did was fix a lot of the errors, and yet Sheilak just undid all of my edits! How do I undo Sheilak's edit?

If you go back and put them all back again, you'll risk an edit war. PM Sheliak and ask him why s/he did that.

I see the Awesomeness.
This sounds like a possible edit war brewing, I suggest going to Ask The Tropers and bringing it up there. That's generally the best place to go if you think an edit war might be brewing.

I like this webcomic.
I think there was a problem with someone else's edit, then it was restored back to an earlier version by a moderator. "system" and "moderator restored to earlier version" as the edit reason.

ETA: To me, angeldeb, it looks like the revert was in your favour.

It looks like an edit conflict. You only get to check out a page for a certain length of time; after that, if someone else starts editing, the edits can collide and one can inadvertently undo the other.
Rhymes with "Protracted."

Angeldeb, please read my response to your original thread. You don't need to go making a bunch of new ones. It was an edit collision, not a deliberate act of malice. If you run into this sort of issue again, go to Ask The Tropers.

Neoclassicism, AKA the Tinkerbell school of economics.
The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
