Talk pages Edit
When posting on talk pages, please indent your posts, if you are not the first poster on a talk page(or section of a talk page), with a colon at the start of your posts. If you were the second poster, put one colon. If you were the third poster, put two colons, and so on. This makes it easier to keep track of who wrote what. Thanks 31dot 16:44, April 11, 2012 (UTC)
Removing valid information Edit
Please check information before you're removing them. You've recently removed information from the remastered version from three articles. Second, please use the "Preview" button when editing an article instead of making multiple changes to an article in a short time. Thanks. Tom (talk) 14:58, January 15, 2016 (UTC)
- No, I won't. Your (Wikia's) "Preview" is compeltely Illegible. I don't even know where the "Preview" Is!! Oh wait... I think I found it. Is it the link "Show Changes"? In Correct (talk) 16:50, January 15, 2016 (UTC)
- And that information was not even sourced which is why I questioned it. (Uh-Oh, I quickly made an edit after I just made an edit!) In Correct (talk) 16:51, January 15, 2016 (UTC)
When you're editing an article there are three buttons, "Save", "Preview", and "Show Changes". I don't know which skin you're using? When you think there is information which is maybe not correct there are other ways to get attention instead of removing information. For example check this and this page. Please read the instructions how to edit and about the etiquette linked on this talk page at the beginning. Sarcasm is not the best way. Tom (talk) 17:07, January 15, 2016 (UTC)
- I cannot POSSIBLY create the perfect edit, even using Preview! I am not sure what you mean by Skin. Everything looks dark grey and there is no "Preview" link. But under "Preview" there is "Mobile" "Desktop" "Show Changes" and "Save". Quite Complicated. I prefer old Wikipedia's "Monobook" skin, with the Plain Text editing. (I have Plain Text Editing set up here too, but it only applies to editing, not links.) What I mean by Plain Text editing is typing == == To get page headers. and when together ~ ~ ~ ~ creates the signature and typing [[ ]] to create a link. .... Okay so thanks for letting me know how to create the links for adding Citations. But what about that very badly written paragraph I tried to delete? It was not properly referenced so I thought it was a Hoax. And There are still a few discrepancies which I pointed out in the Talk Page. Why is nobody replying? If Nobody replies, may I remove the discrepencies? In Correct (talk) 17:39, January 15, 2016 (UTC)
