Please read this, in particular the last point.
FYI, I moved the last version of HPW:CANON policy page that you worked on to the Canon article. That way all the helpful clarifications you made are still easily available as the policy page was reverted and is locked for now (I was surprised you were able to edit a policy page as it was). Comparing the two pages should make suggesting changes to the Canon Policy easier than digging through the page history IMO. Cheers --Ironyak1 (talk) 18:40, January 17, 2017 (UTC)
Ok no problem, thank you very much! FrenchPygmyPuff (talk) 19:19, January 17, 2017 (UTC)
- It's pretty much universal on wikis to place policy pages under semi-protection or full protection. Unfortunately, we don't have the eyeballs on this wiki at the moment to keep a close watch on policy pages. Stuff can slip under the radar. Especially if there's lots of article edits happening and filling recent changes. Most of those edits are probably helpful or well-intended, but it can be difficult sorting the good from the not-good if enough edits build up. And, somehow, it went unnoticed that the Canon policy page had undergone an overhaul over the last couple of months. I'm not really in a position of being able to review those edits with a fine-tooth comb. And I shouldn't be the only one weighing in on them. Policy changes effect the wiki as a whole, so they should ideally come about as the product of consensus. So the only feasible solution was to hit the reset button and put the changes on the table for discussion. The good thing about wikis is that nothing is lost, even when it's undone. So we can easily review the changes in the page history. ★ Starstuff (Owl me!) 03:33, January 18, 2017 (UTC)
