As long as the intent is to improve the resource we're building together, then no-one should take issue with suggestions or questions, even if it's a 180 from what they've been doing.

Agreed. However, we are human beings (well, most of us, anyway) -- and humans are subject to "stuff."

Having been an editor, perhaps I am a tad sensitive as to how others perceive my "help." (Not that that has ever stopped me.) Just wanted to avert a mass lynching-party. :o)

And we have new folks joining who may or may not be familiar with editing of their posts.

So here is my take on it: As an editor of Flossary, I will edit my own and others' pages in the perception that my edits will make it more accurate/readable/objective/whatever/take-your-pick. I expect others to do the same with my posts and/or edits.

If I change something, and another person changes it back to the original, I will likely email that person with my thoughts on why I think mine is the better version. If I convince you to my way of thinking, wonderful! If not, then...

Off with their heads! (bwa-ha-ha-ha)

Just so we're clear. I'm a really sweet and wonderful person. Really. Honest. Trust me on this.

But the editor in me can be merciless, when in search of excellence.

Best regards,
Kathie
