When a Bad Edit Is Made in Good Faith
Sometimes new members will make bad edits, but in good faith. If this happens, remind the user in question what is good and what isn't. Please note that you may have leniency ONLY on new members. If the member says it was in good faith, be sure to determine what user bracket he/she's in to determine whether or not he/she's telling the truth. If user has been with this wiki an average or long time, be suspicious.
