About the Attributes section...[edit]

Similar to the Ganondorf page, there's an issue here on how the Attributes section should be worded. In order to avoid an edit conflict, I will bring the discussion here. My initial edit to the Attributes section was done here. I worked on tone, redundancy, and unnecessary info. The edit was undone and I'm not sure why. I asked my friend about this edit and he agreed with me that my edit was encyclopedic and improved the page.

Just a few minutes ago, I undid an edit which I felt did not improve the page, and it was promptly undone.

This is not about "my edit VS. that edit", it's about making pages more encyclopedic. John John3637881 Signature.png PK SMAAAASH!! 18:53, 3 November 2015 (EST)

Haven't you done enough trouble for now? Also, I did not undo your edit. - Drilly the Hedgehog 18:54, 3 November 2015 (EST)
I have to admit this whole tone thing is becoming a problem. Nobody can seem to agree on what would be good tone for articles. Disaster Flare (talk) 18:55, 3 November 2015 (EST)
Note that I don't wanna cause any trouble here, and I know you understand. - Drilly the Hedgehog 18:57, 3 November 2015 (EST)
Yeah I understand, I just wanted to point out that the whole tone concept is starting to become the main source of disputes and something has to be done. Disaster Flare (talk) 18:58, 3 November 2015 (EST)
Changing something back to the way it was while not using the undo button is the same thing as undoing an edit. As for tone, I think Drilly needs to read the tone article. Please see what exactly I'm changing. You were right to change the word amazing, and that's my bad for not fixing that, but the other two changes did not improve the page.John John3637881 Signature.png PK SMAAAASH!! 19:01, 3 November 2015 (EST)
Seriously, these debates are getting out-of-hand. How is me changing something that big of a deal? - Drilly the Hedgehog 19:09, 3 November 2015 (EST)
It is because your edits are making pages less encyclopedic. Again, you have to be open to people improving on what you started. John John3637881 Signature.png PK SMAAAASH!! 19:11, 3 November 2015 (EST)
Let's end this discussion now before it gets ugly like those previous times: forget all about this, leave it be, and continue editing, alright? - Drilly the Hedgehog 19:13, 3 November 2015 (EST)
I would be more than willing to do that, but it still leaves the problem of the pages being less encyclopedic than before. John John3637881 Signature.png PK SMAAAASH!! 19:15, 3 November 2015 (EST)

Drilly, you have to understand that a disagreement about the content of a mainspace edit is not a personal attack. I encourage you to work with John to find a compromise that addresses both of your concerns and SW:TONE at the same time. Miles (talk) 19:55, 3 November 2015 (EST)

When did I say that? - Drilly the Hedgehog 20:36, 3 November 2015 (EST)
That's what I believe to be the problem; SW:TONE = what John wants ≠ what Drilly wants. AidanzapunkSig1.pngAidan, the Wandering Space WarriorAidanzapunkSig2.png 20:03, 3 November 2015 (EST)
