When editing a profile you will notice a field near the center of the page labeled "explain your changes."

This is an optional field but it's highly recommended that you consider using it. It can help other members quickly understand your changes and can facilitate friendly collaboration.

Examples:

  • Minor edits. Fixing typos.
  • Clean-up after merge of duplicate.
  • Adding source for birth location.
  • Moving middle name to Middle Name field.

Also see Communication Before Editing and this G2G discussion on it.
