Edit

An edit summary only has so many characters to use. Anyways, I did not say it was copy-pasted. It does seem like it's almost word-for-word from the books, though. We don't use direct quotes, and that's certainly how it read to myself and Jaysnow. We have all been taught different ways of writing, btw. I've seen "wouldn't" instead of "won't" used plenty of times in present tense. Jayce  ( 08:24, 2/26/2018 ) ( 08:24, 2/26/2018 )


Actually you said 'we are not to directly copy from the books' which is very similar to copy-pasting. And i wasn't copying directing from the book, i was changing 'wouldn't' to 'won't', the present tense.

Tenses

Hey Sparrow. Just so you know, while we do use present tense throughout our articles, when we reiterate/paraphrase what a character has said we typically use the same tense they do. Also, if an event from the past is referenced past tense is used.

And I say this because I've seen that you have strong writing skills and we appreciate your contributions: have you maybe considered checking out Project:Books or Project:Characters? Both have lists of articles if you click around that need to be written or completed and if you do so you can nominate them for silver (aka well-written) status.

Finally, to keep things more organized when responding to messages on your talk page, we typically go to the other person's talk page, create a new heading, and leave the message there and sign with four ~'s so they know who it is. That way they receive a notification for your message. Also, to prevent edit warring in the future (users redoing and undoing edits) you might go to the article talk page and write out your reasoning there (make sure to sign with four ~'s). That way we have a more easily accessible record of the discussion as it won't be in the edit history, which gets buried easily.

And if you need any help or have any questions please feel free to message me on my talk page (which the superscript part of my signature links to) or go to the help desk. I hope this helps as we'd really like you to stick around! -Rustle it takes a leap of faith16:18 Mon Feb 26 2018

Edits

Hey, sorry for undoing those. I talked with Jayce and realized they were contributive. My bad, and I hope you continue to help the Wiki. :) JayI hope they remember you....ϟ 06:38, 2/28/2018

Thank you. I accept your apology. Of coarse i will continue to help the wiki.

Hey!

I'm so sorry for commercializing, but I just wanted to say that there is a Cats Wiki , www.cats.wikia.com that needs many editors as it is in very poor quality right now! The current admin, Da Kat Queen, is trying to simplify articles, get more people to join, and fix plagiarism, but we really need more editors! If you could consider joining, that would be great!  :-)

Tree

Hey, while I appreciate your edits, Tree was never in the Battle of the rebels (unless I missed something). While I can't explain why his leg was injured after, nor does the book frustratingly, he still doesn't appear to my knowledge. In addition, Tree is the mediator, it's his job to settle arguments, and he has never shown an interest in Clan culture or life, such as battles. I can't even recall if he's even participated in a Clan battle so far, and it seems against his character traits to participate in one in the first place. So because of that, it's an incorrect assumption to suggest that Tree participate in that battle, hence the usage of the word "after" or "following" since that part is technically still true.

You've been warned twice now not to change that, so please do not do it again. Regards, Vec I am Iron Man! 👾 01:21, April 12, 2020 (UTC)

I understand. The reason why I changed it is because I thought Tree being injured in the battle was the only logical explanation. He isn't seen actually during the battle (its told from Bristlefrost's perspective), but then, its very difficult for one POV character to see every single cat in a battle isn't it? Also, while i know perfectly well that Tree is the Clans' mediator, is usually rather laid-back and diplomatic, doesn't really care for the warrior life, and strongly prefers not to fight, he is still willing to fight if the situation seriously calls for it. This is shown when he refuses to let Violetshine face Sleekwhisker alone in River of Fire, and when he goes with the patrol to rescue Squirrelflight and Leafstar in Squirrelflight's Hope (I know both these cases didn't actually result in a fight, but the fact that he went with them shows that he was willing to join in if necessary). This is also shown in Tree's Roots where he helps fight the foxes that attack him and Pebbleshine, respectively. I won't change it again unless we find any real evidence, I just want you to know why I did it.User:Samuel sparrow April 12.

While I understand, but like you said there's no proof. We only list cats who participated in any battle if they were seen by the POV as not every cat participates in a battle; sure it's not every cat, of course, but it's a good amount honestly. And...we have proof for that, which is important. But if there's like a throwaway line in DW that Tree mentions that he was there, then that can be readded, like Mistyfoot being in the Sunningrocks battle in ITW but that was first mentioned in FoS. But thank you for letting me know.

Also, side note, it'd be more efficient if you responded to a talk page comment on the other person's page so they'd get a notification about it ^^ Vec I am Iron Man! 👾 01:56, April 12, 2020 (UTC)

Re: Impostor's eyes

Ah, thank you! That was a mistake on my part. Dunno how I got "deep" from "dark". but it's corrected now. Thanks for catching that. Unfortunately the impostor's main article is locked because at the moment, it's such a high traffic page. —Danny GVivaLaVida 03:51, April 12, 2020 (UTC)
