< report >Yes, I did. Thank you. Look at my edit history, I only did the "upd" today once and that was before I realized my mistake.

< report >But now you are writing "char details" and "char info" to everything, which are almost as useless as writing "upd". We can already see from the edit history you edited a character information.Last modified on 2023-03-15 at 16:25

< report >But it is character details/info? Bio, traits, all that stuff. I didn't think it's useless, I thought yall would understand what I meant. I'll be more thorough now lool

< report >As one example, in c74651.5 you could put "desc and traits"; nothing to complicated. However, if you want to be even more thorough than that I won't stop you, I actually welcome the extra effort. :)Last modified on 2023-03-15 at 16:32

< report >Is it okay to just type that in one and add the edit link to everything else I do in the same series? I was just doing the same thing for different characters

< report >I'm not sure what do you mean by edit link.

For new entries it's ok to write "new entry" or "new char". Sometimes a lot information is added when creating a new entry, so it's fine you add a generic description in the edit summary in these cases.

If you want to add a reference, copying the link (or links) in the edit summary after stating what field you edited is enough.

If you are suggesting in copying the ID of an edit you made instead of writing an edit summary, then no. We only do that for cases when the edit summaries tend to be long and similar between them or if you want to link to a thread or discussion.
Edit: And also when we copy the information from other entry.Last modified on 2023-03-15 at 17:12
