Recent edits[edit]

Hi Genealogyinterest, many thanks for your recent work on the peerage. Just a couple of things though, if you don't mind. Whilst it's not a problem adding IPM detail to such articles as you did here (in fact it's a very good idea- thankk you!), there is a format we follow for things like that- in a separate section below the main text; a bit like "Further reading," perhaps. See my edt after yours for what I mean. Also, things like this are a big no-no in the middle of the article- as an encyclopaedia, we very much discourage conversation of any kind in the article intself. Such discussions (as long as they focus on improving the subject) are for the talk pages. Hope you understand! Feel free to ask any questions at my own talk page, or ping me here! cheers, — fortunavelut lunaRarely receiving (many) pings. Bizarre. 13:05, 25 November 2017 (UTC)

In making a good-faith effort at responding to this feedback, you have often used a 'See Also' heading for the IPMs. This is incorrect. See Also is specifically used to point to other relevant Wikipedia pages. Links off-site should be under an 'External links' section heading. Agricolae (talk) 21:42, 13 March 2018 (UTC)

Minor edits that aren't minor[edit]

I noted that you have been marking almost all of your edits as minor, even when you have added substantive material to articles. Things like adding references or whole sentences (or even several words) of text are not considered minor. 'Minor' edits involve fixing typos, correcting punctuation and grammatical errors and similar uncontroversial clerical alterations, not adding (or removing) content. See Help:Minor edit.
