Help:Reverting Content to Previous Version
When you revert an article to a previous version, you are eliminating the edits of one or more contributors. It's a good idea to give your reasons on the Talk Page and explain what you are going to do. You might also contact those contributors and discuss it with them directly. Then, let some time go by, giving others a chance to reply to your ideas. In the long run it is better to negotiate agreement before hand, thus smoothing over possible hurt feelings and preventing a "revert war".

Also, consider the Three-revert rule [1] if doing extensive editing.

When you are ready to revert, do the following:

  • Step 1 Navigate to the article that you wish to revert.
  • Step 2 Go to its History page and find the latest preferred version and click on (undo). The article will be rolled back to that date and should now open in the Edit Window.
  • Step 3 At the bottom of the page under the Edit Window, fill in the Summary. Then Click on the Save page button.

The current version of the article will now have been reverted to the previous version that you chose.

  1. Do not revert any page or any part of a page more than 3 times in 24 hours. Doing so may lead to action being taken against your account by an administrator.

Salteaux Indian editing notes[edit | edit source]

Indian Names in Michigan By Virgil J. Vogel Copyright 1986, University of Michigan, University of Michigan Press [1]

Smith is thought to have died at the age of 137. You'll notice he looks very ancient. I suspect he may have been chief Peguis. Chief Peguis had his nose injured in a fight in 1802. You'll notice that John Smith had something wrong with his nose. I also suspect that John Smith, is the same John Smith who led many Saulteaux Ojibway's to the James Smith and Muskoday Reserves in Saskatchewan. If John Smith was chief Peguis, he was not 137 when he died in 1922. He was 148. Chief Peguis was born in 1774. Smith knew things we don't know about. There are links to a wikipedia page about chief Peguis and John Smith leading Saulteaux Ojibway's, from the St. Peters Reserve in southern Manitoba, to Saskatchewan. Around 1907, the closed St. Peters Reserve and the Saulteaux Ojibway's were relocated to the Peguis Reserve in Manitoba. Chief Peguis was originally from Minnesota.
