Do you inform others when deleting or making fundamental content changes?

When it comes to making significant alterations or deletions to someone else's content, it's a good practice to inform them and document it, by sending an "as per our conversation email" as a safety step.

Clear communication helps maintain transparency and respect for the original author's work.

This is especially important in collaborative environments, where changes can impact the overall project or its documentation. Keeping others informed allows for discussions or adjustments if needed.

Understanding the history of content is essential for context, accuracy, and informed decision-making.

Being diligent about content deletion not only respects contributions but also mitigates risks and fosters a culture of understanding and problem-solving.
