Uberfuzzy behavior Edit

Why was a link to an alternate dump-creating tool removed by Uberfuzzy without any explanations (even no edit comment)? Is this because Wikia doesn't actually want people to be able to make dumps? Your Special:Statistics dumps are often out of date for months, and they do not include images and logs. ~ Edward Chernenko <edwardspec@gmail.com>MediaWikiDumper 17:51, October 29, 2010 (UTC)

the above conversation is regarding the below removed edit:
"If the database backup is not up to date, you may use MediaWikiDumper tool by Edward Chernenko."
I add it here to discuss per Xd1358's advice[1] :
"You may not modify an official help page. You should try leaving a message on the talk page, asking if you can add it. IMHO, that is not abuse of power."
This staff member has made a much more drastic change "without any explanations" last month, merging 233 help pages then protecting the pages. Anno1404 14:56, November 3, 2010 (UTC)
