Semi-protected edit request on 15 July 2016[edit]

This page under the heading of Fashion reads:

Traditionally, men's dress watches appropriate for informal (business), semi-formal, and formal attire are gold, thin, simple, and plain, but increasingly rugged, complicated, or sports watches are considered by some to be acceptable for such attire. Some dress watches have a cabochon on the crown and many women's dress watches have faceted gemstones on the face, bezel, or bracelet. Some are made entirely of faceted sapphire (corundum).[50]

Proposed replacement

Replace: Section "Things to remember" , Text "Neither will certain changes that do not affect the presentation of the page in HTML,"

with: Text "In addition, certain changes will not work if they do not affect the presentation of the page in HTML,"

because: Target text contains grammatical sentence fragment dependent upon previous sentence construction, and impedes flow of intended meaning.

What about tense changes (e.g. "product planned for launch" -> "product launched")?[edit]

When an article says "X is planned for release in May 2016" and it's now past that date and the product has in fact been released, would changing that to "X was released in May 2016" (if that was actually the case) be a minor edit? Kabutoo (talk) 20:23, 15 November 2016 (UTC)

@Kabutoo: That feels like a major edit to me. Ideally the fact of the release needs a new citation. The previous text, "X is going to be released", might have been backed up by a citation to some pre-release announcement, but that doesn't prove that X actually happened as planned. -- John of Reading (talk) 22:23, 15 November 2016 (UTC)
I also agree that that seems like a major edit. Additionally, a citation to support the product's release update would be prudent. –Matthew - (talk) 20:56, 23 February 2017 (UTC)

Adding of basic punctuation formating. Timotee 123 (talk) 17:19, 26 February 2018 (UTC)

You need to say exactly what changes you wish to be made when making a semi-protected edit request. --SarekOfVulcan (talk) 17:24, 26 February 2018 (UTC)

Need for correction[edit]

The house pictured and alleged to be the one Thomas More lived in is not POSSiBLY More’s 16th c. House! This needs to be rewritten. Alfredriggs (talk) 17:44, 16 April 2018 (UTC)

@Alfredriggs: The place to discuss that is at Talk:Thomas More, where it would be very appropriate to bring up that issue. Here, however, is for discussing the Minor edit help page. --Tryptofish (talk) 22:24, 16 April 2018 (UTC)
