I noticed that you seem to have trouble editing (vendor links, adding new patterns while maintaining the pre-formatting).
Recently, wikia made VisualEditor a default, and many users appear to have trouble properly using it.
You can change your preferences back to the way you used to see the edits by following these steps:
Place your mouse or cursor over your user name in the upper right hand corner of the any pages(in the dark green area on the very top). You shiould see a drop-down menu including "My preferences". *Select "MyPreferences" *On that page, select the "Editing" tab *In the section "Editing Experience", select "Wikia's classic rich-text editor" *Make sure to click the tiny "Save" button at the bottom, and you should be all set.
