Hey, a user has started adding birth years in the descriptions to some characters. I disagree with this since the added information is much more narrow than the estimated age in the info boxes. I believe the descriptions should be facutal, so since we have no idea what year these people were born it just shouldn't be mentioned in the description. What's your opinion?
Some characters already had years guesses on their pre section. I was just fixing the grammar and formating so it looks better on those that were missing. Bedises, its based on the ages which are also guesses. I don't see the problem.
No, you are adding it to a bunch of characters. They did not have information on birth year before. Birth years are not canon therefore I disagree they should be there. Since it's not canon information it shouldn't be there until an admin approves it (which in my opinion it shouldn't be since it's so much more narrow than the estimated ages, and those are just estimates to begin with).
The informaiton you keep adding is not canon and it's changing the esimate ages that have already been agreed on. I asked in the undo that you wait until an admin answers yet you keep adding it. The information doesn't even match the esimated ages. For example, you're claiming that Carol is born in the 60's and that Daryl is born in the 70's, yet their estimated ages overlap which makes it an impossible cialm that they were born in different decades. I ask you again to stop adding non-canon information, especially without admin approval! Why can't you wait until they speak on this since you're adding things that don't even make sense based on age spans that thye have agreed on?
Like I said, several other characters have estimated years of birth and are a match withe their estimated ages. Its always been done like that, I don't see the problem. Besides, its not the only edit Im doing on the pages and still you're undoing everything. You wait if you don't agree, In only continuing an edit that was established before.
Thanks for the info, it can wait until Mistertrouble is back imo. :) I just wish this user wouldn't keep adding the info back since it's false information. Sigh. I'm not gonna remove it again, I asked the person to stop and wait until we get an answer, they refuse to and I don't want an edit war.
Im continuing on an established edit that is adding an estimated year of birth to some characters (several pages from both shows have already done this) based on their ages and also fixing some grammar to make the text more polished and readable.

What's the problem here?
Oh hey! Nice! Posted the above message before I saw this. Thanks! The problen is a user is adding birth years to characters with estimated ages. The info box says one age span, the user is adding a more narrow span in the character description, so for example for Daryl and Carol who's age spans overlap, they're saying one is born in one decade and one is born in another, which makes no sense. And since ages are estimated to begin with, adding guessed birth years as well shouldn't be done anyway since it's adding non-canon information in a way that makes it look like a fact.
And like I said its has been done (other characters have this) before so I dont understand the issue and its all based on their ages which are an estimated guess aswell. Also, its not the only edit I've made, read the info. Its more polished and readable. :)

It's not "an established edit". The vast majority of main characters, especially those with estimated age spans do not have this information in the description and you've spent the past hour adding it. You can edit the grammar, no one has an issue with that, the issue is you're adding factually incorrect information as well.
