Please use summaries[edit]

Information icon Hi there! Thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia.

When editing an article on Wikipedia, there is a small field labeled "Edit summary" shown under the main edit box. It looks like this:

Edit summary (Briefly describe your changes)


Please make sure to provide a summary of every edit you make, even if you write only the briefest of summaries. The summaries are very helpful to people browsing an article's history.

The edit summary appears in:

Please use the edit summary to explain your reasoning for the edit, or a summary of what the edit changes. Thanks! Timothy Titus Talk To TT 22:04, 24 September 2014 (UTC)

Relative clause[edit]

Hi. I have reverted your edit at Caffeinated drink, as your grammar was flawed. The original sentence contained the word "which" in two places, and in both cases you changed it to the word "that". Whilst it is true that the earlier example could be altered, there was no good reason to do so. The word "which" was introducing a restrictive relative clause, meaning that the words "which" and "that" are fully interchangeable, and you need to establish a good reason for altering the existing text. In the second case, the word "which" is used to introduce a non-restrictive relative clause, meaning that only the word "which" may be used, and your alteration to "that" was grammatically erroneous. For a third-party explanation of the grammatical rules involved, you may like to see this page at Oxford Dictionaries. Timothy Titus Talk To TT 22:22, 24 September 2014 (UTC)
