From Rosetta Code

Welcome to Rosetta Code. A few of your changes have been on pages I include in my watchlist, and I noticed you aren't using the Summary option when making changes. This is very useful for other editors so we can know what you've added/removed/cleaned up and whether it's a major or minor edit. It also seems that you're cleaning up indentation on a number of submissions in some of your edits (notably on the Arbitrary-precision integers (included) page). This can be a useful thing, but please be careful. Your edits to the clojure example, for instance, removed useful formatting conventions. Note how, prior to your edit, expressions line up neatly with the scope in which they belong, now they don't. This is conventional in clojure (and other lisps) so if the issue is replacing tabs with spaces or similar, please ensure that the modified examples retain the same structure.--Rabuf (talk) 03:41, 14 November 2013 (UTC)

Thank you for cluing me in to the Summary field. About the white space, I think my text editor might be automatically changing tabs to spaces, so I'll be more careful about that in the future.

When I went back and checked it again I suspected that might be the case. Something I like to do when adding a new entry, click edit on a solution above or below where your solution will be placed, it minimizes the amount of the page that ends up being edited. For that Arbitrary-precision issue, you could undo your changes (I've had to do that myself) and edit the page again being careful to only add the part you want (rather than leave it as-is or manually correct everything). --Rabuf (talk) 04:35, 14 November 2013 (UTC)
I undid that edit and then added back in the changes I wanted to make. Thanks again --Bfad (talk) 04:40, 14 November 2013 (UTC)
