Just took a look at an article I have posted, and it has been edited by someone? What's happening?

Due to Articles moving over moving to the new database, a large portion of old articles lost their formatting and/or had many formatting errors.

These are being slowly hand-fixed by several Admins to restore the article yo as close to the original submission as possible under the new system.
This is mostly BBCode related, URL Hyperlinks have been changed to BBCode, Article and Weave links have been converted to the new BBCode, etc.
Some older BBCode has been replaced with newer alternatives, etc

Did you have any specific questions regarding your article?

weeeell really what I noticed to have changed is that now it has in larger font at the bottom, "All Rights Reversed", when originally I had written in a smaller font "All Rites Reversed", well the edited version implies the same intent but loses the reference :p

so, no big deal

Good to see you're still alive and kicking, I remember looking at your funky workings a decade ago when I started doing maille/jewellery Smile

(needless to say, that reference-question is not for you to answer, that would be just too easy Laughing)

The rites are reversed huh? Where are they reversed to? Wink And did they make a full one 180 or did they just start going backward? *grin*

there is no definition for all that is worth knowing (and a lot that is not).
