Oh sure after about an hour's worth of effort on my part I'm going to waste more of my valuable time waiting for editors to interrogate me. Only people with an unrealistic concept of reality would expect me to put up with this. My Wikipedia name is Abitslow, fyi. If I am not mistaken, this is the second time I've attempted to improve content and been prevented to on wikibooks (other was a different topic). It is especially galling when the content I posted was on the DISCUSSION page, not the article page! Hopefully, I will remember your restrictive software and never contribute to WB again. Just a really bad experience.

Take note that this is false positives. You were blatantly vandalizing, since the filter log is mostly accurate. --atcovi (talk) 22:16, 10 February 2015 (UTC)

KS3_Computing/RoleModels (filter log)
Description
I am trying to build a list of CS role models for the KS3 book. This is being reported as unconstructive - I do not understand why.

When you made the edit you left in the "template" that is generated from the tool bar (e.g., where the text reads "bulleted list item"). The edit filter detects this as an editing test and warns (and eventually blocks if it is repeated) the edit. QuiteUnusual (discusscontribs) 07:48, 20 April 2015 (UTC)

Trying to add a link(1) from the "IT" acronym wiki page to clarify certification terminology to the A+ certification wiki page, and error led me here. (1)http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Information_technology -- tried to add this link to A+ paragraph(related wiki page) to define the rem "IT"-- a colleague in the APA recently asked what the term "IT" meant. Added an extended resource for professionals who are nominally engaged with regard to "IT" community technical terminology. As a highly educated professional editor, I felt this liaison would enhance and expedite the exchange of accurate and timely information.

You can add the link, you just need to format it properly as a Wikilink ([[w:Information technology|information technology]]) and not as a URL. However, I must say if someone doesn't know what "IT" means it is rather unlikely they'd be reading a book on A+ Certification. QuiteUnusual (discusscontribs) 16:08, 11 June 2015 (UTC)
