Kirby Wikia[edit]

This was partially copied from the wikia; is copying stuff from there allowed now that we're going to merge?--Vellidragon 18:22, 16 October 2010 (CDT)

??? I was not aware of this. --Stupid Name Guy, Remino52 18:46, 16 October 2010 (CDT)
Wait, what?! It was copied?! O_o Well, we have not moved yet, so I am not sure if it is okay to copy another person's hard work, even if they are affiliates. --Gamefreak75
No I mean the Wikia affiliation thing, I never knew about this. --Stupid Name Guy, Remino52 18:54, 16 October 2010 (CDT)
@Gamefreak75: If it matters, the parts that were copied are part of the introduction ("Keke has scraggly gray hair, small cat-like ears, a flowing black robe, and rides on a magical broom" says the Wikia; the name was replaced with a pronoun in this article, the rest is intact) & the Trivia section (the "Etymology" section on Kirby Wikia's article). The rest appears to be different, though, so only those two bits would have to be rewritten if it's not acceptable.

That's another good reason to get some movement on that discussion. Wikia is implementing Oasis entirely this month or next, and I fear we won't hear anything from the rest of the Kirby Wikia people until its implemented. Also, there's new articles being created every day. If Kirby Wikia people are concerned for their edit counts, the delay will leave less to be imported. Axiomist (talk) 19:14, 16 October 2010 (CDT)
Well, until the merge takes place (if at all), I suppose we best combat plagiarism as normal. I hate that I don't have this game and wouldn't be too hot at a rewrite, so if anyone can do it, you have my gratitude. Axiomist (talk) 21:46, 17 October 2010 (CDT)
Well, seeing how the merge appears to be cancelled, I've rewritten the parts that were copied so there should be no plagiarism anymore.--Vellidragon 16:58, 15 November 2010 (CST)
