Talk:Zhindel's Post

The official GemStone IV encyclopedia.
Jump to: navigation, search

By the past tense used in the article ("Zhindel's Post was...", etc), the original author portrayed Zhindel's Post as being a thing of the past. I wonder if Zhindel's Post had been temporarily shut down, at the time this article was written. But today, its shops seem to be in working order. So today, while I'm standing at Zhindel's Post, I am changing the verbs of the article to indicate present tense. It's not my intention to screw up the article so just giving my rationale behind the changes I'm making. I hope someone will revert my changes if I got this wrong, and post here if you are not certain I'm wrong BUT you know more about Zhindel's Post than I do. It is an interesting place. Thanks for the patience with me! -Soliere FIRENSIA (talk) 14:51, 31 December 2019 (CST

You're not wrong - at least not about it needing to be present tense. After looking at the history of the article, I can tell you that most of the work done by the original author was done in past tense. That work was done while it was still on krakiipedia; as such the rules may have been different. Per the style guide, articles on GSWiki are written in present tense if they still exist in game.
