RE: Edit Revoked

Well, let me break it down a bit for you.

"It is likely he attended Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, and was sorted into Ravenclaw house due to his expansive intelligence and high respect for the rules."

Speculation such as this is not allowed in articles.

"If Crouch had become minister instead of Cornelius Fudge, many of the issues that appeared during Fudge's leadership would have been avoided or quickly resolved."

Again, speculation.

Other than that, there were things like bolding section headings unnecessarily and unneeded duplication of wikilinks (generally, something is only linked to once in an article, not counting the infobox). There may very well have been some constructive parts to your edit, but (no offense) the majority of it was against our policies, so it's much simpler to just undo it.

However, you most certainly shouldn't be discouraged! Everyone makes mistakes when they first start out with something. For instance, I have recently started editing another wiki, and seeing other editors have to go back and fix my mistakes is a bit disheartening, but I realize that this is part of the learning process. -- 1337star (Owl Post) 21:59, March 18, 2012 (UTC)
