Quote from: M. J. YoungOn the other hand, if blonde hair is likely to be mentioned, I'm going to have to mention it now, before you form a conflicting image of some red-head who doesn't work for me at all
Quote from: Jack Spencer JrThis quote illustrates the big "why" for the TMI the fear of, or just vigilance against contridiction. I mean lord knows they if someone images red hair instead of blond the game will come to a screeching halt and everyone will go home dissatisfied and refuse to play ever again.
QuoteFor the life of me I can't see why this sort of editing can't work just as well. In fact, it probably does, especially for such trivial details as hair color, but probably also for more important details.
Quote from: contracycleBecause it grossly undermines the credibility and value of the piece. The author looks as if they don't know what they are doing or as if just plain lazy. It is a continuity ERROR. IMO.
