I have serious concerns about some of the edits that you are currently making on the FS Wiki.
(1) The introductory text at the top of each article is necessary for SEO (search engine optimisation) purposes. It is gradually being added to *all* FS Wiki pages. This text contains specific keywords which will be used by search engines such as Google. The SEO introduction on FS Wiki pages also has a finite character count and so the wording has been carefully constructed and should not be merged with any other text from the page.
(2) It is important that a general description about the topic be given. We cannot simply rely on outdated historic information.
(3) Where an historic quote is used on a page from a specific source, such as "A Topographical Dictionary of Wales", editors should not change the wording of that quote from the original text.
Therefore I feel that I have to reverse your recent edits to the FS Wiki. --Bromaelor 17:29, 24 October 2013 (UTC)
