Reverting[edit source]

Hi. I noticed you reverted my edits on “a”. Why is the case? ~ mi jan pilin pona ~ (talk) 22:21, 3 April 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Sorry, I should have taken the effort to explain why in the edit summary.
But anyway, you put multiple different example sentences into one {{Example}} template, saying that it's better for the reader. However, there is a reason why we put different sentences in different blockquotes, and I'd say that putting them together is actually worse for the reader. That way it's much harder for readers to see whether it's one long example or multiple shorter ones, and it takes more effort to find which English phrase corresponds to which phrase in Toki Pona. Putting them in separate blockquotes does take up a lot more space, but the information is also much more conveniently organized that way and easier to parse.
We could perhaps search for a way to make the {{Example}} templates a bit more compact when we use multiple in a row, though.
