Greetings My Lady,

I am sure your fingers must be well stained in ink from all the edits you have made to Cunnan. It is nice to see a new face here. How about you tell us a bit about yourself on your biog page.

I am curious about your edit to the Nun page though. Do you feel the comments about celibacy and pets were incorrect or inappropriate?

  • I'm not sure how to post a reply, and maybe this is the wrong way to do it. I felt that the comments about celibacy and pets were just weird in the contexts in question. If you were interested in information about medieval nuns (or nuns in the SCA), would you want 50% of that information to be that they sometimes killed babies and had pets?
    • That's okay. This is as good a way as any other to reply. If you put ~~~~ after text it will insert your username and the time & date you entered it.

      I suspect that the nun article is a classic example of the original author not being an expert about the subject, but feeling very sure about what they do know. So they put it down. I have done that in many-a-case. For me, those lines indicate the type of restrictions/rules a medieval nun would be under and that they didn't always follow them. More details would be nice, but at least it was an attempt to tell us something.

      BTW there are lots of empty links in Cunnan simply because no-one has got around to writing them from a recreationist's point-of-view in Cunnan. I am just afraid that you are linking lots of them to Wikipedia, Atlantia or your site because you think we don't know an appropriate webpage for the topic. The beauty of wikis is that they link to lots of topics within themselves, so one article can lead you to another. We generally try to then list the key external pages on the Cunnan page about the same topic.

      By all means continue editing pages. Just don't be surprised if others change/undo your edits. It is the nature of the wiki. :^)

      • Yeah, I know. The nice thing about the Atlantian links is that they are also user-edited -- plus, they direct the user to other related links areas. So instead of directing someone to every link I know of for, say, blackwork, I can link 'em up to one place that has a lot of links. KarenLarsdatter 00:40, 11 September 2007 (EST)
