Hello, please use the Discussion pages before making major changes to an article, if the issue has not been discussed beforehand on the Officials or somewhere like Discord. You should also be familiar with the Style Guide. I was immediately contacted by another player after you changed the experience table, and that person uses the GS3 part of the table all of the time. I am working out a way to make both displays happen. You are also welcome to use the Village Pump to discuss major changes to the site. Thank you. VANKRASN39 (talk) 13:43, 27 June 2018 (CDT)

Response to your comment: I have no problem with people making small fixes or major changes post-GM update without using the discussion pages, but asking for consideration outside of that when making major changes should not be too much to ask for. This wiki is used by the entire community and you must keep that in mind. Like I said, I was contacted almost immediately. VANKRASN39 (talk) 15:23, 3 July 2018 (CDT)

@VANKRASN39: I'm not saying that it's too much to ask for or anything like that. It makes some sense. But my aside is simply my most honest evaluation of whether I am ever likely to want to edit something other than correcting a lich room or something. And that evaluation is that I will not. I very much respect the work you've put into the wiki, and my needs aren't greater than yours or anyone else's, but if I'm going to get resistance from making a clarity change on something that cannot possibly be relevant to anyone except as a historical document (Yes, I understand you were contacted by someone who claimed otherwise), I'm just going to do something else. Again, this isn't me saying you should do anything differently. It's me expressing why it's unlikely I'll participate. Thanks again for your hard work. PODMASTER (talk) 16:17, 3 July 2018 (CDT)
