Editing

Hi! We appreciate your enthusiasm, but regarding your change here, typically going through page history to re-add passages based on the identity of the original editor isn't helpful. The original passage didn't provide vital information like dates or performers, had POV issues ("instead becoming more like the typical preschool programming of the time" needs a source or a specific basis of comparison to work), and had been removed for nearly a year. That kind of archival attempt to fix things isn't really necessary. I tried to keep part of the reinsertion by explaining what was even meant by "anthology" change (since it still applied to the shorter Wubbuloscope segments). I know you're trying to help, but this basically falls under fixing what's not broken. One of the defining aspects of Muppet Wiki is that text changes. Sometimes all of us have had passages removed, and on occasion feel it's important enough to re-add or rewrite, but if it's just phrasing rather than pertinent sourced facts, it's better to leave that to the original editor to prioritize or not (if Shane thought it mattered, he likely would have brought it up himself). This isn't meant as discouraging, but "So and so added it so it should go back" isn't a good reason in itself. There are other areas to help without digging into past contribution history.

I see. Thanks for your explanation. Now that you mention it, I somehow think I shouldn't have added it back. -Jonathan (talk) 18:07, 23 May 2022 (UTC)

Hi. It appears you're currently editing in Visual Editor. As seen here, visual edits can add unneeded formatting code. Please make sure your "Preferred editor" is set to Source editor. Thanks. โ€” Jon latest?cb=20200820192427 (talk) 13:34, 22 October 2021 (UTC)
I'll try to remember that. Thanks! -FixandHelp15 (talk) 15:20, 1 December 2021 (UTC)
Hi there. A reminder that the edits you're making in the Visual Editor are causing issues with formatting. It's not your fault, it's the software, but we're not allowed to turn it off despite the damage it does. If you could please set your preferred editor to "Source editor" in your Preferences, we'd really appreciate it. Thanks! โ€”Scott latest?cb=20200820192427 (talk) 11:38, 29 April 2022 (UTC)
I just changed my editing preferences. -Jonathan (talk) 13:03, 29 April 2022 (UTC)
Much obliged! โ€”Scott latest?cb=20200820192427 (talk) 13:05, 29 April 2022 (UTC)
