I am trying to understand how my name was removed from the contributors of this page. Is there a system in place? I noticed that after mimicx35 made an update I was removed from the post. This seems kind of weird to me.--ohitsme 23:53, 15 October 2007 (CDT)

It happens from time to time. Personally i have no idea what it could be. But it does happen.--mimicx35 12:58, 16 October 2007 (EDT)

It happens because those contributors edits were not approved. They will stay as editors until someone comes and makes new edit and approves it. Those that were not approved before that one are deleted and so no contribution to them. --Wezqu 16:07, 16 October 2007 (EDT)

OK, I think we are of the same understanding correct me if I am wrong. So when the profile is posted and approved. I will be listed as the a contributor, correct? Then some one else comes along and makes an edit or update, they too are listed as contributor. This means that both names are listed, right?--ohitsme 18:39, 16 October 2007 (CDT)

Well you are right and wrong. You get listed as a contributor even if the edit doesn't get approved and if after that someone comes and edits the profile and his edit gets approved. You get deleted from the contributor list as your edit was not approved but his was. Only those who has self-approving rights gets them listed as contributor even if they don't approve own edits (as they don't really even need approving, but they should approve them anyway) and doesn't get deleted after someone elses edit is approved. There is also some time limit when the history file will get erazed so the contributors will vanish from the list anyway after some time has lapsed. --Wezqu 13:47, 17 October 2007 (EDT)
