Correcting Little Things

Sometimes I see a letter missing or something like that, is this okay for you, if I correct such things?

That is indeed a good thing for people to do :) when writing large articles, it is inevitable that spelling mistakes are made --Joe ST (talk) 07:12, 10 January 2013 (UTC)

Your general awesomeness

Hey Meg, I just wanted to let you know your edits are really good, and I'm glad you're here editing :D As such, on the main 17th Shard forums, I gave you a Coppermind award! Seriously, thank you for all that you're doing. -- Chaos2651 (talk) 04:38, 7 February 2013 (UTC)

Indeed, your help has been excellent over the past month or so, thank you :D --Joe ST (talk) 18:34, 7 February 2013 (UTC)

twok or sa1

@Joe: I'm prone of using twok in my references but I saw (extreme-idling on the wiki because the forum seems down) that you changed twok in sa1. So I see that both of them don't really work on the same page now my question: should I better use sa1 than twok? Don't want you to be forced to edit all my references :P. --Meg (talk) 16:20, 17 February 2013 (UTC)

Unless I'm mistaken, either or should be fine, every editor has his or her preference. Like I like using "tfe" instead of "mistborn 1" for example.
Also, on a side note, the transcription is done! I'll send you the link when the site's back up, or when I have time to make it to chat

Hey Meg. You may have noticed that when you have two refs to chapter 7 (say), but each has a different book identifier (sa1/twok, mb1/tfe, e/elantris, etc) they get shown as two different references. I just had an idea how to fix this... XD but I prefer sa1/mb1/etc as they may lead to less ambiguity in the future; in cases where we have books with similar initialisms, we might as well use the series as the id. That's the reasoning behind 'sa1', and its my preference only. I do usually go through and convert them if I spot them, because I'm strange :D and I enjoy editing :P --Joe ST (talk) 17:44, 17 February 2013 (UTC)
EDIT: done, mix and match as you like :)
Thanks :) So I didn't mix them up, but mostly used twok
@Windrunner: fine :) I'm curious. Meg (talk) 18:51, 17 February 2013 (UTC)
No worries, you should be able to mix and match now --Joe ST (talk) 19:00, 17 February 2013 (UTC)

I know! :P

Hey, I knew it was the epilogue :P I just wasn't sure how to cite the Endnote. -- Chaos2651 (talk) 00:42, 26 February 2013 (UTC)

*adds a section to {c} for 'endnote'

You see, it took me nearly half an hour to 'create' this endnote reference ... :P (Nonetheless thanks for the new "c" section :)) Meg (talk) 07:55, 26 February 2013 (UTC)

I'm such an insensitive guy <3 --Joe ST (talk) 09:32, 26 February 2013 (UTC)

Dashes

I back-changed my dashes :). I did use them because they are used in English books. So I searched one and c&p'd it into my texts :). But I will not do this again; "--" is quite easier. And I hoped I didn't use a dash <–> but an em dash em dash <—> (the difference is nearly not visible, the em dash is a bit longer :/). Meg (talk) 19:31, 27 February 2013 (UTC)

Em dashes are fine if you'd like; I wouldn't worry about that much at all :) -- Chaos2651 (talk) 01:09, 28 February 2013 (UTC)

Whitespace

Would you like more whitespace between paragraphs? Does anyone else have any opinions? It doesn't need to be a full lines worth --Joe ST (talk) 10:29, 7 April 2013 (UTC)

Whitespace -> yes. For more clarity and more readability (for myopic or other not good seeing people), especially when the footnote numbers ([1]) are in the text (because they stretch the gap between the lines). That's a thing of all wikis, that the paragraphs "change" their style from single line spacing to a bigger spacing when notes are made.
What means the third sentence? Sorry, I don't understand. :( Meg (talk) 16:53, 7 April 2013 (UTC)

Ahh ok, I can see that that might be a problem. And I meant that if I do change it, it wont have to be as big as two lines. --Joe ST (talk) 17:26, 7 April 2013 (UTC)

Ah, I see. But my issue is that the gaps between such a "new line" and text with notes is exact the same. So it doesn't really contrast with the text itself. But please don't bother with my special preferences about this. :) Meg (talk) 17:50, 7 April 2013 (UTC)

I know I increased the line spacing once, but it could be a bit more if you want. Not MUCH more, but just a little bit. I think it's all right now. Two lines is too much. I don't really understand the issue with footnotes at the moment. -- Chaos2651 (talk) 18:52, 7 April 2013 (UTC)

Okay, now I do :) The new line amount should be longer than the space with the text with notes. But I do think it shouldn't be a big change. -- Chaos2651 (talk) 18:55, 7 April 2013 (UTC)
Is this rather than upping the paragraph spacing? As that's what I was gonna do XD --Joe ST (talk) 19:10, 7 April 2013 (UTC)
No no, we're talking about the same thing lol. Just a bit more to that paragraph spacing :) -- Chaos2651 (talk) 20:07, 7 April 2013 (UTC)

Joe, now you "killed" my answer. :) Thanks to you both. And thanks for 'un-attentioning' the Hearthstone article. Meg (talk) 19:19, 7 April 2013 (UTC)


Revision articles Tranquiline Halls and Damnation

May I point at my question here: http://coppermind.net/wiki/Talk:Tranquiline_Halls :) Meg (talk) 19:11, 19 April 2013 (UTC)

Thanks for the help (Sincerely):D

Thank you much for simplifying my wordiness on "the highstorm and the dun spheres" issue. I reread it like 300 times before finally walking away, and by that point I was too involved with it to notice the error. I knew what I was trying to convey, and my mind was telling me it was right. Even though now, after the fact, it is obvious your revision is much clearer and condensed compared to mine. Also, the events in the barrack after the storm were events that should have been included, so thank you for that addition as well. I do honestly appreciate it. I apologize for my grammatical crapitude. I have better intention than writing skill I'm afraid. So, by all means feel free to edit or change anything I might happen to edit in the future. I listen to the audiobook exclusively, so the spellings the book uses on a lot of things escapes me. I try to search the site for the reference, but don't always realize it's a different spelling, like "dun" for instance. I assumed it was "done" but had forgotten the term altogether when writing originally. So, long story short (something I'm not good at doing obviously, :P ) Thank you, very much! - Corey

Hey Corey, I'm glad you don't feel bad about my edits :). I was curious and then stumbled over these spheres. I added the healing process for completeness and because I thought that's what you had in mind. :) I'm more the one to look over something and (trying to) check for typos and missing references as for I'm not native English. But I see if one article is not consistent in tense for example. :) But you surely don't have to apologize at my place. You're welcome! **Meg (talk) 19:29, 7 May 2013 (UTC)**

Tense changes are something I am always doing. It always sounds right in my head, and will change from past,present, or future from sentence to sentence. So, by all means fix it, if you like. I did another edit on the Teft page, but it wasn't for any reason other than clarity and condensation and to keep the same "voice" throughout the section. I'll let you do the final revision. I was just tweaking a bit. It wasn't done with any disrespect intended.

You're doing great work here! As Windrunner pointed out to you already. I'm only one like you, helping to make the Coppermind wiki better but I'm not instrumental in doing that wiki. :) I'm glad helping and I surely need much tweaking as for I myself think my writings sometimes kind of halting. :) And I do my edits too without any disrespect intended! **Meg (talk) 20:16, 7 May 2013 (UTC)**
