I had gone and tried to improve some Tag Wikis here on AU. Here are my suggested edits (all of these tags did not have an existing Wiki). All of these I wrote myself - they weren't copy-pasted from anywhere
du is a command that can get the size of folders/partitions on Linux
L2TP refers to the Layer 2 Tunneling Protocol, which is a protocol for VPNs
NumPy is a numerical computing library for Python
Except... one user did
Reject and Edit on them, with this message:
This edit did not correct critical issues with the post - view the revision history to see what should have been changed.
Ok, I'll go through and look at what they got changed to:
du is a Unix command to measure disk usage.
Fair enough, that's a better description. Although it was copied from to du Tag Wiki on SO
In computer networking, Layer 2 Tunneling Protocol (L2TP) is a tunneling protocol used to support virtual private networks or as part of the delivery of services by ISPs. To ensure security and privacy, L2TP must rely on an encryption protocol to pass within the tunnel.
Not completely, but the first part of that Wiki is taken from Wikipedia
This Wiki is taken from the one on SO
NumPy is an extension of the Python language that adds support to large multidimensional arrays and matrices, along with a large library of high-level mathematical functions for operations with these arrays.
The first part of this one is taken from the Tag Wiki on SO
Here's my question:
What exactly was incorrect/wrong with the ones I proposed that lead to them getting rejected? Also, is it acceptable to take text from Wikipedia and/or SO Tag Wikis and use it for our Tag Wikis here on AU?
