Not complaining, just curious as to whether I erred in adding Wookiepedia citations to a too-brief answer given my edit got rolled back before the question was closed as a duplicate. I'd ask Keen directly, but Stack Exchange seems opposed to direct contact.

I'll just restate my comment:

@SeanDuggan That edit was way too drastic. You completely overhauled the answer, and that's not what edits are for.

The answer as originally posted was incorrect (I think). You completely rewrote it so that it indicated how incorrect it was.

  • Ah. Thank you. Sorry for the double-post. I made the comment, then decided that the odds were good that you would get no notification that I was asking you, since the system did not give any indication that I had tagged you. – FuzzyBoots Aug 14 '14 at 19:28
  • @SeanDuggan Yeah, I faced the same issue when I rolled it back. :3 – user1027 Aug 14 '14 at 19:37

I'll chime in here, since I brought up the edits in chat.

The original answer was posted. Personally, I think it's wrong, but that's neither here nor there.

Your additions, while full of good intentions, actually went too far trying to back up the answer with citations.

Particularly

It also was not entirely black, and glowed with a dark purple hue:

The blade took on a deep violet hue and consisted of an obsidian-colored core with blood-red flecks flashing up and down the blade's length.

Which actually contradicts their offering of the soulsaber as a black lightsaber.

By adding as much as you did, you effectively took a poor answer and turned it into an answer that contradicts itself. That's far too drastic of an edit for my taste, and I would have rejected it, had it come across the review queue.

    Improving an answer beyond recognition is still vandalism. – Valorum Aug 14 '14 at 20:22
