Editing quotes

Do you think it's OK to edit quotes slightly? E.g. in this one, Alex actually said "He has, like, a red arm", but that looks weird. I don't know which is preferable. Spookypeanut (talk) 05:29, 5 June 2017 (PDT)

I guess it's up to us to set that standard. In general, I've been trying to keep it true to the original (not that anybody's gonna notice), or if I do some editing, I use ellipses when I cut something out, and square brackets when I need to add something in. But it's not a hard and fast rule until we say it is.--Kabutton (talk) 07:45, 5 June 2017 (PDT)

I think you're right. In this case I don't think an ellipsis is significantly better, so I added the "like" back in. Spookypeanut (talk) 08:59, 5 June 2017 (PDT)
