Some 5-7 years ago (hell maybe 10 by now), most, if not all user contributions were summarily removed or poorly rewritten. It literally became pointless to contribute to the wiki as whatever you researched and added would simply be removed.
Are there any specific pages that suffered such removal/poor rewrite?
In a decade of reading arch wiki here and there there were changes, e.g. [Installation guide] and Beginners page which was huge and contained a lot of great info, which is now gone and separated to e.g. General recommendations - https://wiki.archlinux.org/title/General_recommendations https://wiki.archlinux.org/title/General_recommendations.
But in any other specific pages, AMD, specific Laptop stuff, etc, I didn't see valuable info being removed.
I only have a positive experience, figuring something out, making quick notes on the discussion page, and then discussing it on #archlinux-wiki and together choosing different wording or place.
Many example, RAID, FakeRAID, Networking, ....
My e-mail become full of notifications from the wiki that my contributions were removed. A quick search of the arch-general archive including "drankinatty wiki" will disclose a lengthy history.
