Editing talk pages

I think there has been a misunderstanding regarding your recent edits: [1], [2]. I think that you visited the history of those pages, found your edits and clicked edit, right? Newer edits have been done since your last edit, and those edits were undone, because you edited an old revision of the page.

This is why you should never edit an old revision, unless you know exactly what you are doing (see also Help:Style#Discussion_pages):

  1. Never remove other people's posts, unless of course removing properly closed discussion (like in [3]).
  2. Do not edit your posts if somebody has already replied.

I'll have to undo those edits, please express yourself in a regular reply. (The reference to Help:Style from [4] was meant for your future edits.)

I must first say this feels weird to have a discussion on my "User talk:Xtian" page.

While I'm sure I did not visit history, its certainly possible we edited the same page within minutes (9/16). Its very possible I edited a tab rather than reloading the page (>_<) I will be more careful in the future.
