-Please, make the actual changes. While you made your changes, I can merge changes from somebody else and your changes can conflict with `master` branch content. Please rebase on master every time before you're going to push your changes and check that your branch doesn't conflict with `master`.

+Please, don't forget to update your fork. While you made your changes, the content of the `master` branch can change because other pull requests were merged and it can create conflicts. This is why you have to rebase on `master` every time before pushing your changes and check that your branch doesn't have any conflicts with `master`.
