- I don't know why you change the populations on the page in second time, can you explain this, please check your sources before you make changes, if you don't have source material on hand talk to us, thanks.--Doneve 13:25, 9 February 2012 (PST)
- 22.214.171.124, if you're serious about your changes to Terra, please respond on the link above. We will not have edit wars on BTW, but if you can state your case for a static population (backed by canon references), we'd be glad to have your input. Interaction with your colleagues regarding dis-agreements is an expectation for participation. If you're just having a laugh, then we're well prepared for that as well, too. Thank you. --Revanche (talk|contribs) 15:04, 9 February 2012 (PST)
126.96.36.199, this wiki does require edits to be cited and while we don't often enforce it (just encourage), we do when the facts seem to be strange and self-generated. I understand you indicated that the Republic's population was 250 billion and that your summary line indicated it came from the addition of the populations of some of the planets within it. However, the number itself must be derived directly from a primary & canon source. Also, to give your edits validity, it is best to do your best to make the edit as professional as possible. For ex, you added:
- the estimated population of the republic of the sphere is 250 billion
You chose to not use basic rules of grammar, such as punctuation or periods, which is one reason Doneve paid attention and was concerned. A properly stated edit would look like this:
- The estimated population of the Republic of the Sphere is 250 billion.<ref>''Canon source'', p. 47, "Population of Republic of the Sphere."</ref>
