Copy/paste moves: - respond to Tiddlywinks
::I have to inform you of a couple things. Firstly, the format of the page I created was specifically passed over previously for want of a better format. Therefore, it's not okay for you to put it in the mainspace.
::Secondly, just personally, it doesn't feel great that you practically stole all the work I already did on the page in my userspace. If you can't contact someone, and/or if you want to significantly ''alter'' their approach, it might be reasonable to start your own copy. But updating for the new generation is about the most straightforward thing imaginable, it probably would've been okay if you had just asked (or even just made the appropriate edits). (And if you had asked, I also could have let you know that the format was dispreferred. Perhaps we could have kept the page up to date still, but it would also have kept you from the mistake of mainspacing it, at least.) Understand also that, usually, if something is being proposed for the mainspace, it's usually okay to edit it. (If not, you'll hear about it =P , and then you can go from there.)

:::Thanks for your feedback! I'll concede I've recently been more active on github than on wikis, which I guess may have led to me being used to 'fork' someone else's efforts into my own namespace, rather than editing their original in place. It was definitely not my intention to take undue credit for your existing work -- hence I'd explicitly noted I was just merging together these two existing articles in my edit summary upon creation. In my mind efforts by others had gone inactive for quite a bit, given there had been no replies on the topic over the last few years, hence I'd figured I might as well just contribute a bit myself. On approach, I don't mind if you'd rather change it. I mostly felt just getting something just a step more comprehensive out there in the main space might increase exposure to what you'd started on and hopefully invite further improvements, while otherwise people might not have noticed as easily. My apologies if it came across differently. I hope I'll be able to prevent similar misunderstandings going forward. - [[User:Tycho|Tycho]] ([[User talk:Tycho|talk]]) 19:22, 5 September 2017 (UTC)
