Edit summaries[edit]

Any chance of some edit summaries to help non-involved editors make sense of the current cycle of post/revert on this article? --Old Moonraker (talk) 11:54, 3 March 2010 (UTC)

It looks like a new user SamHumphrey1985 (talk · contribs) made some quite sweeping changes which added some info but removed others. Orphan Wiki (talk · contribs) reverted back. I've tried to merge the two versions but might not have got everything right.--Salix (talk): 12:52, 3 March 2010 (UTC)
Looks good—thanks. --Old Moonraker (talk) 13:04, 3 March 2010 (UTC)

Problems with the SamHumphrey1985 version.

  1. The first sentence goes against the normally practice, falling foul of Wikipedia:Avoid peacock terms. Having a more descriptive lead and giving the times credit later avoid this.
  2. The bibliography misses some of the publisher information which is helpful for locating the works
  3. You have missed off the references in the Portraits of Mabey section.
  4. Some articles are missing from the bibliogaphy.
  5. Some minor formatting problems.

As you can see there are some problems with your version. --Salix (talk): 18:46, 3 March 2010 (UTC)
