Edit summaries[edit]

Commenting on users in edit summaries is rarely desirable. For one thing, an edit summary cannot be edited so a simple mistake might result in a permanent accusation against the wrong person. At any rate, this edit is good and has nothing to do with "vandalism", so your partial revert with an accusation is not correct. Just say the edit was mistaken, but the word vandalism has a specific meaning at Wikipedia and the term must not be used for good-faith edits; see WP:VAND. Johnuniq (talk) 00:05, 16 March 2015 (UTC)

I had debated on the intent of the edit, and reviewed it carefully before changing it. While the rest of the edits on the page appeared to be in good faith, the partial edit we were referring to could not have been in good faith, and I made this judgement based upon the link that was substituted. First, the link didn't go to any new location, but just back to the page that I linked to (which technically it shouldn't have been able to do that), second, the link had absolutely no relation to Winnie-the-Pooh whatsoever. It simply looked like a child was screwing around, which is not a good faith edit.
