Hi there! Thanks for your hard work on the Nalthis page. It needed improvement, and we appreciate what you put into writing and citing everything. Unfortunately, the history section comes across as too detailed for the page. Generally on a Shardworld page we like to confine the history section to the "big picture" of events that occur on the planet. For instance, Threnody is a good example of the level of detail that's preferred. So all of that is to say, don't be too alarmed when you see it edited down. You could let some of the Keepers go through it, or if you prefer you can go through it yourself and get it to the point of being an overview of the planet's history. A lot of the content can be useful either in a culture section on the page (for the information regarding Returned in different nations, for example) or on other pages that are designed to handle more of the details. For instance, the Five Scholars article could use some of the content, as could Shashara and Hanald. If you'd like to discuss this further, you're welcome to reply here or the Nalthis talk page, or to join our Discord for Coppermind editors.

Hey Truthwatch3r, thanks for getting in touch. Apologies if the page was too indepth, may have gotten carried away making it. I can go through it myself but unfortunately I have some exams coming up and those need to take priority right now so it may take a week or two before I can properly dive into revising the section. If this doesn't work though and people want to do it themselves in the mean time that's grand as well.
Apologies again for any mess I made.

No need to apologize. Like I said, your work is very appreciated and will be useful in other places! We're happy to let you go through it yourself and totally understand that exams take priority. Good luck with them!

Hey Truthwatch3r, went through them again and cut out most of the unneeded references. I've kept some details of the novel in the sections since I feel it would be weird to exclude them as the article felt incomplete without some details. If you want to look through the new version and revise is as needed that would be a help. Thanks again for your patience.

Thank you very much! Yes I agree it definitely needs to include some of what goes on in the novel, as those are important parts of the world's history. I'll take a look at it sometime this week or the next. And thank you for taking the suggestion to pare it down gracefully!
