Warning: Experienced users, especially those with many edits to make, will often use abbreviations in order to save time; for example, "rv" for "revert". Abbreviations should be used with care, although they save one editor time they may cost readers much more time to figure out what they mean, they can be confusing for inexperienced users, but they are generally fine for small edits such as formatting and grammar changes.
