This is not so much discussion for the Arkati page itself, but for the individual pages. Why are they all written in the past tense? It makes it sound like they've all gone and died or something. IRVINETOMOE 10:41, 15 February 2007 (EST)

I've wondered the same thing. I blame Railien. Perhaps he'll be willing to clear things up for us? - Andy talk 10:58, 15 February 2007 (EST)
Read the style guide. I suggest putting a watch on it so you know when it changes.  :) Oliver Talk 11:36, 15 February 2007 (EST)
Honestly, that is way too much technical speak for me, and in a similar vein, I'm only here to write articles, and while I'd like to follow the rules, I really have no interest in following things like that word for word. All I know is that those articles sound pretty crappy written in the past tense. IRVINETOMOE 12:00, 15 February 2007 (EST)
Additionally, I don't see the states of the Arkati as being something historical when being told by someone within Elanthia. They only become historical if you're talking from the perspective of someone in Dragon Realms, I understand. - Andy talk 11:59, 16 February 2007 (EST)
