Generally speaking, you don't add a link for something every time it is mentioned, just the first. At most, you would want to do it the first time it is mentioned within a section, especially if it has been awhile since the last time it was linked. This also holds true for years. In a table, if seven entries include the year 2017, you would only include the link the first time the date is referenced.

Hello

hello hello

Ambox warning pn.png You currently appear to be engaged in an edit war according to the reverts you have made on Isaiah Burdette; that means that you are repeatedly changing content back to how you think it should be, when you have seen that other editors disagree. Users are expected to collaborate with others, to avoid editing disruptively, and to try to reach a consensus, rather than repeatedly undoing other users' edits once it is known that there is a disagreement.

Points to note:

  1. Edit warring is disruptive regardless of how many reverts you have made;
  2. Do not edit war even if you believe you are right.

If you find yourself in an editing dispute, use the article's talk page to discuss controversial changes and work towards a version that represents consensus among editors. You can post a request for help at an appropriate noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. In some cases, it may be appropriate to request temporary page protection. If you engage in an edit war, you may be blocked from editing. I stole this template off Wikipedia and used the Substitution module.. l but yeah check out the articles talk page.'-

Notes on changes you've recently made to articles

Generally speaking, you don't add a link for something every time it is mentioned, just the first. At most, you would want to do it the first time it is mentioned within a section, especially if it has been awhile since the last time it was linked. This also holds true for years. In a table, if seven entries include the year 2017, you would only include the link the first time the date is referenced.

Additionally, I've noticed you've been deleting the spaces between the separation hash marks and the words contained within, as well as after bullet asterisks. Please be aware that those changes have zero bearing on the visual presentation of the actual article. They are a move commonly made because it makes reading the source code significantly easier for editors. That is the only reason. Now what I say is not meant to be taken as gospel, but are widely accepted conventions not only in this wikia community, but across the board.

Unlike some in this community, I understand that no one person owns a single article, and I'm not going to assume any edit I dislike is vandalism. I'm going to assume you are unaware with certain conventions, and am attempting to instruct you in why certain things are done certain ways. Gnome work, in general, is often thankless. Thank you for attempting to improve the quality of MicroWiki, and I hope you will take my comments as intended: to make you a more effective Gnome/editor.

In the interest of transparency, I will be undoing the recent edit you made to the Order of the Grizzly article, as it is easier than undoing them by hand, and then will add in the year links under the more conservative use I just mentioned.
