August 2014[edit]

Information icon Hello, I'm BusterD. I noticed that you recently removed some content from Manhattan without explaining why. In the future, it would be helpful to others if you described your changes to Wikipedia with an accurate edit summary. If this was a mistake, don't worry; I restored the removed content. If you would like to experiment, please use the sandbox. If you think I made a mistake, or if you have any questions, you can leave me a message on my talk page. Thanks!

If this is a shared IP address, and you did not make the edits, consider creating an account for yourself so you can avoid further irrelevant notices.
  • I apologize for reverting your changes on the Manhattan article. Despite the judgement of my action as stated in your edit summary, I did indeed read the change, and what I saw was a first time ip account blank a source and change the meaning of a section of a high visibility page. I'll confess that I reacted in the way I did partially because you'd made what appeared to be a significant change, yet you'd declined to use an edit summary describing your action. When I see any first time editor or ip make a significant change with no edit summary, I suspect mucking about. However, your reversion caused me to reread your change, and I see now that you'd deleted a raw hyperlink, leaving the same source already fully formatted. Your content change also seems appropriate, based on the sourcing. A belated thanks for your contribution. However, generally it is helpful if editors use an edit summary to signal their intention when making a significant change to a frequently viewed pagespace. An edit summary allows a pagewatcher to see the intention behind the edit. I strongly suggest you use an edit summary when editing, as you did when reverting my mistaken but well-intentioned effort. If in the future I can assist you, please feel invited to contact me on my talk page. BusterD (talk) 03:25, 18 August 2014 (UTC)
