Wikipedia talk:AutoWikiBrowser[edit]

I noticed your edits at Wikipedia talk:AutoWikiBrowser today, and had a look at your contributions. This edit did lose text, but I have no idea how it happened. It certainly wasn't a fault with AWB, since that tool can only be used by named accounts listed on the permission page, and it runs as a separate Windows application, not as part of your browser.

Also, edits like this one do not fix a "waste of bytes", since the software keeps a log of every revision to every page. Saving another revision can only use bytes, not save them. As far as I can see, before your edit the equals signs lined up neatly and were easy to follow, and after your edit they don't. That's a matter of taste, I guess. -- John of Reading (talk) 17:39, 28 March 2013 (UTC)
