    I am just curious, how is editing abuse of the breed pages going to be prevented? I mean, anyone now can edit the breed pages, which is both a good thing and a very bad thing.

    It seems like the system is a lot like wikipedia now. Any edit is shown in the history of the breed page, which is sort of a safety method. I can see shenanigans happening though, and false information being uploaded to the breed pages. Will a report feature be implemented if we believe someone has abused the editing power of the pages and done damage? Or should we just PM any mod or admin with the information?

    There is a report flag on every article just like the forum posts. If you feel something is off then please report it using the flag.

    An electronic history is kept of all changes so that if something happens like that it can be reset.
