Heads up

As much as I appreciate it, please don't edit the Malinovian page without first checking with me. (Article in question is here) I noticed that you removed some of the dead links, which is fine most of the time. But the {{WIP}} tag was at the top, which meant those red links were going to be made blue eventually. Though I do appreciate your contributions!

President Aydan, I appreciate you taking the time to message me. The WIP banner itself says that it should be removed after a few days without an edit. This article had seen more than 7 months without a change, so I don't see it as a factor here. At that point I removed the dead links, as plenty of time to take a planned article live had passed. I'm not looking to clean up every dead link on the site, mainly those on articles that haven't been touched in awhile (as they're often abandoned).
Also, while I appreciate that certain parties have a vested interest in the contents of an article, no page belongs to any one person on here. They're all publicly editable, and belong to everyone (who isn't the Emperor of Austenasia) equally. Respectfully, unless you become an admin, I have no need to check in with you before making good faith edits aimed at cleaning up the database. If you have any issues with anything I've said in my reply, please feel free to take it up with an admin. Have a good one.--DukeBearPeninsula (talk) 02:18, 17 May 2020 (UTC)
