Strikethroughs:

These serve a specific purpose, in letting readers now that a situation that existed has now changed and is no longer applicable. Without the strikethrough, how is one to know that something in the index has been errata'd? I propose that we use strikethroughs to signify these changes and make them clear, we can remove them after a few weeks if necessary, but in the case of FAQ or Errata documents overruling current books I'd prefer to keep the original rules mentioned in with the changes listed after. Thoughts on this are welcome.

we don't do that here, it's practically a site policy. You can easily refer to the old information without using a strikethrough at all. --Dark Angel 2020 (talk) 14:08, 3 July 2017 (UTC)
Okay, that's fine. Just make sure you don't just remove something but keep the text up-to-date. This time your removal also undid the new Errata information but left the old outdated info in place. I'm fairly new to this editing thing, so just keep helping me out if I make some mistakes alright ;-). Couldn't find a policy on the strikethroughs though, and I've seen plenty of those in other places so I thought it was fine. --Caladai (talk) 14:21, 3 July 2017 (UTC)
Just because you found it elsewhere doesn't make it acceptable now, it just means that the regular contributors can't keep up with anons. I'm trying to find the discussion where it was hashed out but can't remember right now and don't have the time. But if you look back far enough through the change log you'll see lots of strikethrough reverts. If something is incorrect, change it, if you need to reference, even better.

Might be worth adding to the Formatting Guidelines page. Just a general, "Don't use this." Acherousia (talk) 17:40, 3 July 2017 (UTC)
