Hi, I see you made a lot of little changes. Many of them were helpful, but please don't mess with old talk pages or archived pages (like old community discussions, Today on Muppet Wiki, etc.) They don't need spacing adjusted for tildes or spelling corrected. Thanks.
Some more tips. Some of your formatting changes really make no difference at all, or else are counter to our established style. changing "&" to "&" isn't needed. Since <br> isn't actually bracketing (unlike center and so forth), no extra / is needed. It works without it.
Apostrophes inside a link are fine (this was discussed years ago, and I mentioned it in a previous edit summary). If other users sometimes do it the opposite, that's okay, but you don't need to change it wherever you see it (and really, links to redirects, as long as it's the correct page, aren't an actual problem, but it doesn't hurt, and you've already caught a few that did got to disambiguation pages and so forth so that's always a useful fix). Just some more things to keep in mind.
How are you editing? Which is to say, are you using visual editor? (That has a tendency to do that and cause other issues, so you might need to switch).
Also, don't change words in quotes (look at the text to see if it's a quote or quoted block text). If you feel the need to adjust the link (as I said, redirects that go to the same page are fine), okay, but don't change what the person is actually saying (if they said Piggy instead of Miss Piggy and so on).
You already did that. See MuppetZine: Meet Scott Shaw. You didn't change the redirect, you changed the whole text. (You're changing some already piped redirects back to the full name for unclear reasons, and in a couple of instances, you've had typos or piped the same term. Not often, but since you're editing quite a lot, it's a little harder for us to be sure we catch them.)
Which editor are you using then? You're still adding the unnecessary / on break tags too. Is that the editor? It's not a problem *but* it also isn't needed at all.
Your enthusiasm is appreciated but also try to keep in mind all of these guidelines and double check to be sure. Thanks!
Oh, sure. You have done a lot of good work (I especially appreciate some of the text you've added to pages, like about Oscar's newsstand) and it's clear you're trying to help (and you're communicating too, which we consider important here). It's just whenever anyone makes a lot of edits very quickly, it's easy to miss something or not catch the context of the page.
Like I said, these are basically tips, reminders, and letting you know about policy and practice (since you weren't around when we established a lot of these). So don't let this throw you!
Looking over the diffs in your contribs from Recent Changes, you're definitely using one of Wikia's two WYSIWYG editors. In some cases, it's making automatic changes of no consequence, but in others, it's breaking some of the simple code that Wikia's software isn't smart enough to comprehend.
I try to tag these pages to make them uneditable with the WYSIWYG editors, but I'm not entirely sure it always works. If you could switch over to the text editor, which is what we prefer, that would be extremely helpful for those of us who regularly go over the wiki's Recent Changes considering how many edits you're making.
This link should take you right to the place to change the setting. Select Source editor from the drop-down next to Preferred editor, then scroll down to hit Save.
