No, edit wars have nothing to do with who the battling editors are
and/or their relation to the page prior to war.
There are lots of ressource on the web, describing what a _wiki_ edit

I know what an edit war is, thanks anyway.
I certainly can't understand (of course, I would understand if the first
edit restriction was justified).
The restriction was justified.

Once your edit was reverted, you should not have reverted again (see
Why? [1] is about something different (page restoration/deletion).
  Instead, you should have discussed about your changes.
BTW, writing in a wiki is like coding, it is a good idea to "split your
