Continuous edits to Etymology section of article
I have this article on my watchlist, so I have noticed a rotating IP making small but continual changes to the Etymology section of the article. It's been going on for a long time. Sample IP roster, from just the past 5 months….
Same behavior and pattern in their edits i.e. first deleting references and using the Reflinks tool to fill them back in. Admittedly this is useful and there is no problem with this but they seem to mess around with various references i.e. adding then deleting the same ones or moving them around many times. See the Quantum mind article for an example of this. They also have an obsession with adding unneeded templates all over the place but never actually attempting to improve any articles. So yes they are making a mess on some of these articles but I think this user is doing good faith edits and they do not seem to understand that over all in some cases they are making a bit of a mess of things. Looking at some of the other articles they have edited, I guess this will take some time to fix. Goblin Face (talk) 22:32, 20 August 2014 (UTC)
I noticed they edited the etymology section of the psychokinesis article again, hopefully they can explain what they are doing because it is confusing. I will not look into this any further though. Goblin Face (talk) 21:20, 21 August 2014 (UTC)
