A little more and the editing feature will be gone for good.

I remember when someone edited "Nintendo sucks" onto their page. And I had an embarrassing experience in which someone put a picture of a penis in the Yoshi page.

This reminds me of the time when RAB modified the Captain Falcon page to show some of Infernal's artwork.

He got banned from Wikipedia as a result (i think), but it was worth it.
