User claimed it was vandalism, typos are not vandalism by any means and the user who instated the edit has been trusted with the rollback right.

Sources without recent consensus must be presented for review first. If the user intends to work on the draft User:Colonel Warden/List of Indian castes, which has been languishing for five years, that work is to be exempted from the restrictions mentioned, i.e. Andrew Davidson is allowed while it's still in userspace to offer weaker comments and sources there, provided this work gradually leads up to acceptable quality and sourcing, before it's offered for mainspace.

Modified Sept 2016: 1RR restriction removed and a first revert does not need to be explained on the talk page.): Modified January 2018: Civility restriction removed though editors are reminded that WP:CIVIL is a core policy on Wikipedia:
    A 1 RR restriction. Any attempt, even if made in good faith, to do more than one revert in a 24 hour period will lead to an immediate block.
    A second revert without discussion restriction. A second revert of any edit, however minor, that is done without an explanation on the talk page will lead to an immediate block.
    A civility restriction. Any suggestion that any editor is not editing in good faith will lead to an immediate block.
    An ethnicity claim restriction Any attempt to bring the purported or deduced or imagined ethnic or nationality identities of any users will lead to an immediate block. This includes an editor's own stated ethnic identity or nationality. Wikipedia uses reliable sources and the weighting of those sources to decide what to include, what not to include, and how the content should be stated in an article. Please stick to arguments based on those factors.
