Centralized discussion of Travel + Leisure's college campus rankings[edit]

January 2014[edit]

Hi there. Regarding the edit you made here on my talk page, calling good faith edits vandalism is unfortunately considered a violation of our personal attack policy. I clearly explained that my edits to the article were in good faith, not vandalism, as it always has been since I've been here for the past 7 years. Since you are relatively new to the project, there are other ways to obtain consensus for a possible merge, like a requested merge, which I think should have been done in the first place. An AFD could be an imperfect venue for obtaining consensus. If I made a mistake though or did something to upset you, then I am deeply sorry. It was never my intention to hurt or upset you or cause any issues. Please do not feel discouraged from editing Wikipedia. Lord Sjones23 (talk - contributions) 03:07, 29 January 2014 (UTC)

Thank you for the apology. Nor was it my intention to hurt or upset you. Vandalism was a poor choice of words on my part. The reason why I wrote that this needed to go to AFD is because you were not proposing a merger at that time, but simply deleting the work of a score of editors and redirecting to a page devoid of meaningful content, without any discussion. Having commented on a previous AFD, I knew that AFD was the place where disputed redirects are supposed to go. Now that you have changed your mind and now think that a merger is in order, I will comment at the merger discussion. Banks Irk (talk) 14:30, 29 January 2014 (UTC)
