Hello there, EYanyo. With regards to [http://www.hrwiki.org/index.php?title=Rumble_Red&diff=441400&oldid=438906 this edit]: editing this wiki is teamwork. We work ''with'' each other, not against each other. Please don't ignore discussions like this one: [[Talk:Rumble Red#Great Gazoo]]. If you are convinced that this is a reference, and there is no consensus on the talk page (in this case, not even a majority), then don't just change the article. Post your opinion on the talk page first and see what other editors think about it. Also, don't ever use an edit summary like "Screw all y'all." This is not acceptable. Thanks.{{User:Loafing/sig}} 20:42, 9 April 2007 (UTC)

:Hi Loafing.  Sorry, I guess I got a bit carried away.  However, I think you aren't considering the revision just because of the edit summary (I saw your talk page, so I'm sure that from personal experience, cleanliness of edit eummaries is very important to you).  I don't know what's considered consensus, but in the talk page article you pointed out, there is a majority that agree (2-1 is a majority, right?  Or does it have to be by a bigger margin?).  As it is, there appeared to be a consensus at the time the Fun Fact was added, and no arguments against it when it was.  So doesn't the door swing both ways?  Shouldn't something be added to the talk discussion before something is removed?  It seems to me that other "semi-plausible" facts have been put onto the wiki with as much, or less, consent.  I'll try posting something on the discussion page, maybe later.  Sorry again for offending you with the mildly profane summary (Er, The Cheat made me say it).  Believe me, I am trying my hardest to be a team player here, although it's sometimes difficult.  I truly respect you as an editor, and really didn't mean to get on your bad side.  Thanks.  [[User:EYanyo|EYanyo]] 23:29, 9 April 2007 (UTC)

[edit] Teamwork

Hello there, EYanyo. With regards to this edit: editing this wiki is teamwork. We work with each other, not against each other. Please don't ignore discussions like this one: Talk:Rumble Red#Great Gazoo. If you are convinced that this is a reference, and there is no consensus on the talk page (in this case, not even a majority), then don't just change the article. Post your opinion on the talk page first and see what other editors think about it. Also, don't ever use an edit summary like "Screw all y'all." This is not acceptable. Thanks. Loafing 20:42, 9 April 2007 (UTC)

Hi Loafing. Sorry, I guess I got a bit carried away. However, I think you aren't considering the revision just because of the edit summary (I saw your talk page, so I'm sure that from personal experience, cleanliness of edit eummaries is very important to you). I don't know what's considered consensus, but in the talk page article you pointed out, there is a majority that agree (2-1 is a majority, right? Or does it have to be by a bigger margin?). As it is, there appeared to be a consensus at the time the Fun Fact was added, and no arguments against it when it was. So doesn't the door swing both ways? Shouldn't something be added to the talk discussion before something is removed? It seems to me that other "semi-plausible" facts have been put onto the wiki with as much, or less, consent. I'll try posting something on the discussion page, maybe later. Sorry again for offending you with the mildly profane summary (Er, The Cheat made me say it).
