Summarize edits please!

Hi,

I noticed you added some stuff to the Ermarian article, which is good. But you also made some changes to the percentages, which you should explain in the edit summary or on the discussion page. The numbers, unless otherwise noted on the discussion page, are reasonable guesses made by Drakefyre (or in some cases me), and without an explanation there really is not much reason to change them.

Talking about edit summaries, it is really vital to fill them out for any but the most trivial, self-explanatory changes (like spelling). That is the way a wiki works; if nobody can tell what you changed except by looking at the differences in the text, it is very hard to keep quality standards.

Edit: The explanation is especially important considering nobody knows who you are. Some people are considered authorities on the fan canon. That is not the way a Wiki works, admittedly, but in a fictional setting where all the facts are actually made up, you would prefer to know either why something should be a certain way, or who said so.

Thanks for contributing! Arancaytar | Send Reply! --- That is not dead which can eternal lie... 17:13, 28 December 2005 (CST)
