This template attempts to warn an offender on BTW's Vandalism policy and is intended where the providing Editor can easily assume bad faith, in regards to the warned edit. In other words, for this third level warning, the Editor is certain the offender is aware that his/her post could be considered in poor form and needs to be warned of the BTW policy.

The four levels of warning are:

1. Assumes good faith
2. No faith assumption
3. Assumes bad faith; stern cease and desist
4. Assumes bad faith; strong cease and desist, last warning
