Provided that you keep the byline of the original author untouched.

@David: Provided that you keep the byline of the original author untouched.

@Ed Jones: For an experienced GS member, you should be able to understand that I was addressing the person who started the thread. Next time, I will be more careful about such details.

That's if the rewrite is minimal. If it is wholly incorrect, then inserting your name is acceptable.

I am sorry to hear that. That's your opinion and your rule.

IMDb specifically states that bylines should be left unchanged, regardless of the correction.

Again, you should know that.

That was a direct quote from an Employee on Get Satisfaction.
It's not my opinion nor a published rule.
It is not in the Help Topics.

Read what I said and what Will said.
Wholly incorrect. WHOLLY. Nothing in the plot is correct. NOTHING.

Not a single word by the author was correct. It was replaced by correct wording and grammar. I am talking about a plot that is so bad as to be unreadable and usable.

Taking that quote out of context is misleading. The original thread was about reverting a wrongly changed byline.
