Forums > Senate Hall archive > Copying Wikipedia articles to Wikias

I've been trying to find the rules on this, but I haven't had any luck. So what's the rules on copying an article from Wikipedia to a Wikia? For instance say you wanted to copy the Wikipedia article for Lex Luthor onto the Superman Wikia. How would one go about doing this, or is it completely disallowed?

  • Feel free to copy any text from any GFDL-licensed wiki. As long as you make sure to give Wikipedia credit for the article, you should be OK. --Imperialles 13:09, 4 October 2007 (UTC)
  • Per Imp. We have Template:Wikipedia. You can copy it to your wiki and slap it on articles copied from Wikipedia. - Sikon 13:16, 4 October 2007 (UTC)
