A good editor will:
  • respect other editors by learning from them as much as possible.
  • rename poorly named pages.
  • link related pages.
  • refactor content that doesn't match the templates or best practices
  • assimilate content that is not in the appropriate point of view.
  • amalgamate similar statements and arguments to be brief
  • bifurcate - transforming negative criticism and disputes into separate, but parallel pages that present alternatives.
  • disambiguate - confusing terms and pagenames by providing links to definitions and alternate meanings of a word.
