Splitting edits

Hey Francoism, thank you for contributing :) I wanted to talk about a couple of edits you've just made, [1] and [2]: when moving content, each move should be done in its own edit (the same edit, not cut in one and paste in another), without changing the content; only once the content is in the new place, it can be modified in a following separate edit; this is to ensure that every diff is understandable and it's always possible to determine what is the source of every piece of information.

You may be interested in reading ArchWiki:Contributing#Do_not_make_complex_edits_at_once and Help:Procedures#Move_a_section_within_the_same_page.

Another tip: you can use [[internal links]] in edit summaries, which is often very useful to point to related pages (e.g. when moving content to or from somewhere) or discussions.

Hi Kynikos, thanks for your input. I will be moving sections as preferred from now one.
Sometimes I simple forget to click on edit in the top-navigation and simple edit the sections separately instead.
Didn't know it was possible to use internal links, will read ArchWiki:Contributing for a second time. :)

Hi, thank you as always for helping looking after this wiki! I thought I'd remind you of the possibility to link to articles in edit summaries, for example it would have been useful in [3] to show that the content comes from [4] and it's not a new addition :)
Then, well, while I'm here for the sake of fairness I have to point out that splitting that move and [5] would have made it easier to understand the diffs for the users watching those pages ;)
