# What's the proper course of action here?

There has been some dispute in the revisions on this answer. First, someone edited it to add the word positive, then somebody made it bold, the somebody reverted that, I reverted back to the bold (which was approved) then somebody reverted to it without the word positive at all.

What is the proper course of action here? Which edit makes the most sense?

• I would say that the latest edit is the best, perfect square are square of integers. – user99914 Jan 23 '17 at 2:29
• @JohnMa, but $-1$ is an integer, so just saying it's reserved for integers makes the answer conflict with itself saying $-1$ is a perfect square, then explaining why it usually isn't – Travis Jan 23 '17 at 2:34
• @Travis Well and $3$ is a positive integer. The addition of positive misses the point. It is reserved for integers in the sense that it is reserved for numbers that are squares of integers (positive or not, though it does not really matter, except, for a nit-pick, I'd say $0$ is a perfect square so positive is somewhat false even. – quid Mod Jan 23 '17 at 2:36
