Who ever this is. I really like some of the edits you've made. But you keep leaving out important stuff like how Koopa Klaw replaces the Flying Slam or FLUDD is replaced with Mario Tornado. —Preceding unsigned comment added by GamerGuy09 (talkcontribs) 07:29, 22 October 2012‎

Using Show Preview[edit]

Hello, I see that you have made several consecutive edits to the same page. I want to point out the Show Preview button. It's right next to the Save Page button when you edit. You should use it whenever you are making a lot of experimental edits, for example when you are trying to get formatting right. Using the Show Preview button is quicker and easier than saving and clicking "edit" again, and will keep Recent Changes and page histories from being flooded.

You still don't seem to be getting it. Here's an image:

For the most part I'm not editing the same sections of the article. I'm editing several different sections, each at a time. Are you saying you want to open the whole article in the editor and only save when I'm done editing the entire thing?12.197.251.226 16:31, 22 October 2012 (EDT)
(edit conflict): In general, that is preferred, although I know from experience that it is common to think you're just going to edit one section, then spot errors in the others after saving those changes. What I would recommend is that if you've edited one section, then notice other errors, check the whole article and edit the rest in one fell swoop. That way, there are at most two edits to the same page in a row. Hope this helps, and thanks for contributing. Clarinet Hawk (talk · contributions) 16:35, 22 October 2012 (EDT)
Well, yes. But if you don't want to edit the whole thing, you could do something like edit two to three sections at once, because it's flooding RecentChanges. Air Conditioner AC.png I am the air con. 16:33, 22 October 2012 (EDT)
