I'm not quite sure why you're rewriting random Wiki pages from long ago, like Kai's and Spritanium's. Some of these pages could use some cleaning up, but I don't really see the point of doing massive reorganizations on the pages of members you never knew. -VinnyVideo 20:35, 18 November 2015 (EST)

For that reason, I try to avoid removing anything critically relevant or add any additional comments to existing information. A lot of these pages go against the general conventions I've observed among more "modern" Wiki pages, and there are often some very informal, or simply poorly written, segments of the pages. In the example of Spiritanium, most Wiki articles don't separate a user's history into different sections unless they tell history from the perspective of a different subject, such as Yoyogames or DeviantArt (A great example of this organization is Nite's page). Spiritanium's page had an independent section of every relevant year for no apparent reason, and most other pages group all that info under a singular "History" header. The only information that was removed instead of re-organized was tangential or irrelevant (such as which games are included in The Orange Box). As for Kai's page, I didn't really make a whole lot of changes. The page bothers me do to its length giving the illusion of uselessness, but I don't know a thing about the guy, and as a user, he's too old to research, so there's nothing I can do to beef up the page. That said, a good amount of the information that DID exist wasn't very significant. The specific reason WHY he left was loosely written as it was, and isn't all that important anyways, since it seems to have no direct connection to anything else in the article. The only other changes I made were the removal of some very colloquial language, as it clashed with the dialect found in most other articles. " He used to roll with Joey old school, from long ago." can be cut down to "He was a friend of Joey." with no loss in detail. -User:Willsaber 12:14, 19 November 2015 (CST)
