An edit war occurs when a pair of editors repeatedly undo one another's edits. You don't need to ask permission to change an article in Wikipedia, but if you make a change and another editor undoes the change, you should never re-submit that change without discussion. Undoing changes without discussion constitutes edit warring, which can get you blocked from editing Wikipedia.
