Changes since first iteration[edit]

Diff between first iteration draft and current one. --MarioGom (talk) 17:07, 22 September 2019 (UTC)[reply]


I object to the word "living". A document is not a biological organism. If you mean "changeable/adaptable to input", then why not use the word "dynamic", which means these things with a nice positive connotation? Casliber (talk) 13:50, 8 October 2019 (UTC)[reply]

Thank you Casliber for your opinion ... the use of 'living' in this context is as in ... to remain alive, relevant, and up-to-the-moment. The word 'dynamic' is a great one, that denotes change, but not necessarily updated relevancy. Islahaddow (talk) 16:19, 11 October 2019 (UTC)[reply]
Ummm, definitions on google of 'dynamic' include "(of a process or system) characterized by constant change, activity, or progress" and "(of a person) positive in attitude and full of energy and new ideas.", so I (and the dictionary) would disagree with that interpretation of updated relevancy. Ultimately is trifling - it bothers me as I think the current adjective is misapplied but probably won't bother anyone else. Casliber (talk) 18:54, 11 October 2019 (UTC)[reply]
