    Hi guys, I’ve just seen your presentation in the Pecha Kucha event. loved the illustrations, but i do have a question, if I may – don’t you think that by adding illustrations to the different articles, you will then prevent the option of editing and changing that article? I mean, if there is an artwork related to the article as it is now, and someone will want to edit it and make it better, than won’t the artwork will lose the thing that connected it with the article? the article won’t be the same as it was when the artwork was made, so the artwork now has no meaning to that article, no?
