NEWLY ADDED COMMENTS WILL BE REMOVED

  • Anthony, I know you love changing links as soon as a new page is added, but it doesn't hurt to wait a few minutes sometimes, for the person who added the page and may already be working on it. I just lost my entire reworking of Adam Barr because you changed it after I started.

    Please keep that in mind (most of the time it results in a conflict but the text is still saved; this time it wasn't.)

    • Also, and this one may be your editor, but if you're doing it intentionally, there's no need to remove spaces between text and the categories. It's easier to edit with a space between.

    • I promise to wait a little to see if someone is already adding links.

      I think that's the editor. It's not intentional on my part.

      Is there a diff link example I can look at for the space removal bug?

    • There's the Parker Lewis page mentioned, here, and a couple months back there was this.

      This happens periodically, but since some of the same editors also remove other spaces in the article (like between info boxes and article text), it's not always clear to me how many of them are bugs and how many just someone's editing habits. This one and a few others by User:Tinyirnfist0 might be on purpose.

    • Oh, yeah. That happens for everybody unless they've checked "Disable Category module" in here. That's a secondary reason why __NOWYSIWYG__ is helpful at the bottom of edit pages: it helps with the spacing.

    • Just a reminder, please pause at least a few minutes after I've created a page. We're edit conflicting again, since you usually just want to fix a link and I like to correct or add anything else needed on a given page. (Otherwise I'll just have to start laying all the redlinks first to avoid it.) Thanks!

    • Alright.

    • And another reminder on context. Please read the sentences you're adding links to. Jamaica Bay is a US national park, no relation to the country.

    • My bad.

    • You did wait seven minutes from my last action this time, but please, wait longer. I managed to save it this time at least, but a lot can be lost for the sake of a period or a letter. I know you like to be helpful and most of the time you are, but please remember you don't have to make those edits the instant someone else starts a page, or while they're still on the Wiki. I'd honestly suggest twenty minutes to a half hour as a pause time unless it's clear they're done for the moment.

    • I'll try to remember that.

    • And it almost happened again. Fortunately you made a change before I added the images, but please, Anthony. Listen when I ask you to wait. *Now* I'm done with that page.

      Fixing disambigs, adding links, spaces, and the other stuff you do is useful but not when it gets in the way of larger page building. I know you usually make quick small edits. If you really feel you'll miss the change if you wait later, bookmark the page for yourself to get back to.

      And if I leave a message saying "Wait before working on this page I'm working on," after saying you'll try, don't make your next edit on that very page. (Checking the time stamps, one minute after you replied to my suggestion of a 20 to 30 minute wait if the editor is still active.)

    • I'm sorry. I promise I'll be more cautious from now on.
