Continuing the conversation of the article here as it would be easier with the syntax highlighting.
For example, DBS has been changed. But there is no flag anywhere to say this.
Agree. It would be easier for Friends to see all the edits too. I have added a new page here.
There is also this phantom change
Which has been “approved”, but has no data in it.
This is a “deletion” change. Agree. We should also request reasoning for deletion changes (currently only adding requires). Done. Going forward, deletion also requires reasoning/source.
It looks like I can now globally remove or edit any of the historic dividends. I didn’t try, as I am not sure if I would be able to reinstate the original data.
Nope. Approved dividends cannot be remove or edit. You can at most add. And I can always revert to the previous state.
How do I know it has been deleted?
The new page highlighting all the changes by users.
How can I retrieve my actual yield on cost, which has presumably been reduced as an actual distribution was wiped from the system?
I will only approve edits that are official or on projected dividends and rejects/remove all other edits. So, all edits should eventually become system edits anyway. This feature is mostly to fixed the lag in upstream and the fact that I cannot go read every company announcements personally.
