I was looking at the review queue and I got to vote on this suggested edit. The author of the edit removed noise and fixed the uppercase of acronyms like "HP" (great modifications) but also included 3 links to Wikipedia pages related to the hardware the OP is using.
Now I feel a bit confused and I don't really know what to do. Peter has a very positive history of very valuable contributions on the network, especially on SU where he was also editor in chief. There is clearly a case of good faith and desire to provide a contribution, no doubts on that.
What confuses me is whether three links pointing to Wikipedia are really needed. This user is also a very active participant in the Wikipedia community, so it might be that his love for the project has lead him to add a bit too much links to it.
My points are:
- This is definitely not spam. But could it be considered a bit too much "affection" for Wikipedia by adding links that might not be relevant?
- Are those links actually relevant? Do they improve the post?
- Should these kinds of edits be:
- accepted without caring too much about them?
- encouraged because they provide useful background?
- rather rejected to avoid cluttering the post?
For Peter: I hope you don't feel bad at me for pointing out your edit, I am just trying to understand the rationale. Nothing personal here.
