Just remember that now you will have to go through whoever originally 
submitted the data for this tower, or it won't be accepted. I can see the 
point where something is being disputed, but it also applies if you are 
adding data (e.g. presence or otherwise of canons) which wasn't previously 
there. Personally, I cannot be bothered to go through the original 
contributor in order to add data which they clearly don't have or they would 
have submitted it themselves.
