I know it was sometime ago, but was reading the edited "This Life" entry and no problems at all untill the last paragraph which was changed and lost all its meaning

The original -

"The final scene in the final episode saw the return of Warren from his world travels, to say just one word as he viewed the carnage that was the final episode ("Apocalyspe Wow"). A word that summarizes the entire show. "Outstanding" "

ie "Outstanding" is the word Warren uses on his return and is the last word ever in the show AND summarises the show.

Whilst, the edited entry.

"The final scene in the final episode saw the return of Warren from his world travels to say just one word as he viewed the carnage that was the final episode ('Apocalypse Wow'). The whole show itself can be summarized by one word; outstanding."

Which loses the sense that "Outstanding" was the final word spoken in the show.

A small point maybe but for true fans one that hasn't gone un-noticed.

Don't suppose you could ask for it to be changed please? (If you want to come up with some better wording then fine now you know the context)

ok, I don't think that I realized totally that fact when I was doing it. I'll pass a word along to the people in charge, and they can get it fixed. I'll post a note here if they give me an idea on when.

Cool. As it appeared you had gone on a long lunch break I also posted to Jimi X who looks after updates, so he may be the best person to talk to.

Cheers
