March 2011[edit]

Welcome to Wikipedia. The recent edit you made to Myanmar Army has been reverted, as it appears to be unconstructive. Use the sandbox for testing; if you believe the edit was constructive, ensure that you provide an informative edit summary. You may also wish to read the introduction to editing. Thank you. Nsaa (talk) 15:43, 6 March 2011 (UTC)

I suspect that Nsaa was as concerned as I was about your last edit, the deletion of a section. Perhaps you could clarify that. -- SEWilco (talk) 15:47, 6 March 2011 (UTC)
As Nsaa's tip at the top of his Talk page points out, it's better to continue the discussion here rather than scattering it across three user talk pages. To move a section, it's better to not delete material because readers don't see the missing info while you are editing. It would be better to edit the entire article, cutting and pasting the entire section from one place to the new place. -- SEWilco (talk) 15:57, 6 March 2011 (UTC)
I just did that! thanks for pointing out! --78.33.164.25 (talk) 16:02, 6 March 2011 (UTC)
It looks like Nsaa was doing Recent Changes patrol and noticed your section blanking, but he probably didn't notice your preceding flurry of improvements. -- SEWilco (talk) 16:04, 6 March 2011 (UTC)
I have been spending all afternoon cleaning and tidying up the article as well as cross referencing to improve it. I'm not that familiar with wikipedia rules and regulations, but i'm just trying to help. --78.33.164.25 (talk) 16:06, 6 March 2011 (UTC)
Sorry for that reversal. As pointed out by SEWilco I just saw the removal of a complete section without any explanation. Hope you bear over with my reversal. Nsaa (talk) 16:29, 6 March 2011 (UTC)
Its ok, it was just misunderstanding. --78.33.164.25 (talk) 16:41, 6 March 2011 (UTC)
I don't think there is a rule or regulation against temporarily deleting a section, but it is a risk to readers and particularly open to misinterpretation when there isn't an edit summary which describes what you are doing. You can see in the history that an unexplained section blanking triggered an automatic emphasis of the action. If you look at the History of some popular articles, you'll see how using a summary makes it easier to see what is being done to an article. We now resume our regularly disorganized editing activities. -- SEWilco (talk) 18:09, 6 March 2011 (UTC)

Burma[edit]

Before you suggest moving more of the Burma pages to Myanmar, please look at some of the previous discussion. See items cited by me at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Burma (Myanmar)#Requested move 2. --Bejnar (talk) 23:28, 8 March 2011 (UTC)
