Concerning Proper Referencing[edit]

No, I do not believe that you made a mistake by removing my changes to the Ocarina page. You are correct in the fact that I did not properly reference any of the information I added. This is because there are not many books on the ocarina, and perhaps only one or two actually concerning its history. There also aren't any Internet articles that can be very much relied upon (such as the citations for ocarinaforest.com, a site that has been created by a somewhat knowledgeable but rather uninformed individual). The information I had posted was obtained from years of experience and study - I'd like to point out that I more than doubled the section on the ocarina's history. As I will not cite myself as a source, it seems that you've got me beat. While I can personally guarantee that the information was all true, that won't count for proper verification. In all honesty, I was just trying to be helpful and perhaps correct some misguided notions. But I will not attempt it again. If you and this site are willing to pass up the information I've offered, then it's your loss. I understand your concerns over information that has not been cited properly. For all you know, I could be a crazy person who made all that up. And, though I might tell you it was true, there is no way to definitively convince you otherwise. I might have spent my entire night on that page. I might have been proud of the wrongs I had righted. I might have been disappointed when I checked my email this morning. But I understand and accept your decision (despite being somewhat of a disservice to anyone interested in the ocarina). No hard feelings.
