[edit] Use of minor edit checkbox

Hi there. I noticed your recent edit on the Golf article, but I would just suggest to not mark these types of edits as "minor." The minor checkbox would be better suited for things like adding links to words, correcting typos, or fixing formatting mistakes. From Wikipedia: "A minor edit is one that the editor believes requires no review and could never be the subject of a dispute." In this particular case, I feel like it changes the meaning of the article enough for others to review it. --Oromë 01:34, 10 September 2021 (UTC)

Thank you for the correction. I will remember that in the future. SingingOrc 03:00, 10 September 2021 (UTC)

[edit] References in clear Text instead of templates for references

I noticed that you checked the minor edit box again eben you added references in clear text. Please use the templates for references. Please do not write references as clear text. I recommend that you look at pages, such as Template:FR, Template:TT, Template:RK, Template:App, Template:UT, Template:S, Template:PM and other Template: pages to get familiar with templates for references. --Akhorahil 06:34, 31 October 2021 (UTC)

Thank you for the notice. As for the minor checkbox, I assumed it was minor since I changed none of the content, but only added citations. As for templates, I am sorry if I caused any inconvenience, but since the results are exactly the same, I do not quite see why that matters.—SingingOrc 19:03, 2 November 2021 (UTC)
All the other editors that I am aware of use templates for references, which ensure the uniformity of the phrasing of references. In addition assigning names to references and using those names creates footnotes for references, which are not the same, because several references with the same Name will refer to the Same footnote for the reference with the same number. --Akhorahil 20:17, 2 November 2021 (UTC)
