Copying from WikipediaEdit

Please do not copy pages entirely from Wikipedia. Our licenses are not compatible, and as such, it is something of a copyright violation to paste their articles here. In addition to that, their page layout and style does not match the style used on Memory Alpha. -- Sulfur 17:27, 1 December 2007 (UTC)

To clarify, Wikipedia uses the "GFDL", while Memory Alpha uses one of the "Creative Commons" licenses. Both basically are what one would call a "free" license, but there are some differences between the two. This means that it is generally not possible to simply copy content between the two projects, whether it's from WP to us, or from us to them.
However, if you are the sole author of the content, you can of course add your writing to both projects, thereby "dual-licensing" it. If you do that, it would be nice if you could add a small comment to the talk page here, stating that you are the author of the WP version (and eventually adding a link to the diff of the WP article that shows what you added there).
Still, please don't outright replace existing content here with complete article text from WP. -- Cid Highwind 12:53, 2 December 2007 (UTC)

Linking and Captain ProtonEdit

Please do not link to a copy of books, etc for sale. Link to their internal wiki page. That page will link to a version for sale. This applies especially to your edits to the Captain Proton articles. Also, do not bother mentioning fan fiction stories, as that information will be removed. -- sulfur 17:01, February 2, 2010 (UTC)

Regarding Captain Proton, you added information about the other characters to the page about the character of Proton. This information should be at The Adventures of Captain Proton, if it isn't already.--31dot 09:21, August 18, 2010 (UTC)

Redirects Edit

It's been our policy not to have redirects with titles (Captain Janeway, Gul Dukat, Admiral Ross, etc.), which is why it was deleted.--31dot 09:16, August 18, 2010 (UTC)

POVEdit

Please read the point of view policy, as your additions to The Adventures of Captain Proton are from a real world perspective, and need to be reformatted. - Archduk3 09:26, August 18, 2010 (UTC)

...or not. Never mind, I guess. - Archduk3 09:29, August 18, 2010 (UTC)
