I like your Manual of Style and Point of view guidelines, and I think the basics would work well on my wiki, The Hardy Boys Wiki (or any fiction wiki for that mater), so I was wondering; would it be all right if I copied those two pages to my wiki? I know you can't copyright any thing like this on Wikia but, I don't want to do it if its not all right with you guys.

Of course I would change it somewhat to work better with the Hardy Universe, so it wouldn’t be exactly the same, but the basics would stay the same (In-Universe and Real World for example).

I’ve been on a lot of wikis and this is one of the best I’ve ever seen, and even the skins cool! Keep up the good work guys!

Thanks for the complements. :) Several other Wikia wikis have already borrowed and adapted MA's layout, format help, etc., including The X-Files Wiki, Wiki 24, and The Law & Order Wiki. I don't see a problem with you doing the same. As far as attribution, it should suffice to say something to the effect of "Adapted from Memory Alpha" in the summary field when the page is created. Feel free to adapt templates, etc. as well. A number of our templates and/or help pages were adapted from other sites such as Wikipedia anyway (although many, if not most, originated here). -- Renegade54 14:56, 6 March 2008 (UTC)

Okay thanks, I'm glad it's okay. – WHLfan 21:33, 6 March 2008 (UTC)
