Please, keep in mind that Talk pages are used exclusively to discuss the improvement of a particular article.
Casual comments, questions never provided in official sources, or requests for other people to perform edits, do not belong to the Talk page, instead, you can use the discussions feature to do it, or approach a Content Moderator at his respective Message Wall.
Thanks... my talk posts were meant to generate discussion on whether those pages were in the right place, and potentially improve the article. Thanks for making the switch though, on the Pro Golfer article.

Discussing a page is literally what a Talk Page is for... I apologize for not saying "My proposal is:..." ... As you say though, "Assume good faith! We're all just trying to help the wiki", "There is always work to be done on the wiki", "[There is] no limitation to space", "Be bold! Go ahead and edit", and "[The Admin's] opinions are not worth more or less than yours".
Maybe it is just because it is online and in text, so it is hard to gather context, but you came across as a little hostile... just so you know. "Talk pages are for actual proposals", as if my input was just vandalism, or a waste of time.
If that was not your intention, then, thank you again for making the edit. And I apologize for taking it that way.
I just figured it was worthing discussing, in case I misread the magazine titles; I didn't want to make an executive decison on the matter, in case I was missing some information that the article creator had.

No, it is not, it is to make actual, concise and firm proposals. What you wrote was nothing like it, even if you wrote it.
As you say though, "Assume good faith! We're all just trying to help the wiki"
If I didn't assume your good faith, you would have received a warning/block, instead of an explanation of what you did wrong.
"Be bold! Go ahead and edit"
That doesn't mean at all that all edits are going to be correct and/or accepted
"[The Admin's] opinions are not worth more or less than yours".
Telling you what you did wrong is not an opinion, doesn't make me more or less worth. Wrong edits are fact, and facts are not a matter or opinion.
but you came across as a little hostile... just so you know. "Talk pages are for actual proposals", as if my input was just vandalism, or a waste of time.
That is an automatic message, so what can I say, "hostility" or any intentions are a matter of your own interpretation...
I'm sorry I didn't write it the way you wanted it. I did not realize there was a proper format to using the talk pages... I believed the topic of the microscopic page was incorrect, and I was just trying to bring it to attention in the relevant talk page (like, from my previous experiences, how any other wiki or wikia would function )
And it wasn't the automatic reply that I took exception to, it was your second reply, implying my edits were illegitimate. Again, if that was not your intention then I would be happy to hear and accept that, but it is just text on a website, without context or intonation, so my own interpretation is literally all I have for putting a voice to your words.
Make sure to change your default editor to Source Mode in the Special:Preferences page, Editing tab. Source Mode is the only editing mode allowed in this wiki, as Visual Mode is not allowed due to the high number of glitches and problems it has caused.
