Hey all, big fan of the site. I just wanted to let all of you who work so hard on this site that someone is using wookiepedia articles and not citing. Since I couldnt post a link...the site is swtorstrategies.com. It looks like all of their lore pages are taken directly from here.
Infact it may very well be all of their lore pieces are stolen from you guys. And I do mean stolen. If you look at the top of each article is says "Author: mmorpgguide"
Yeah, not only does Wookieepedia need to be cited as the source, but the history page of every article they take content from needs to be linked to in order to meet the guidelines of CC-BY-SA 3.0. As for the "Author: mmorpgguide" part, though, I'd assume good faith on that one. That's just what their blog website's software does when someone posts a blog entry. I don't think it's meant to suggest that they actually wrote the entire thing. =) - Brandon Rhea(talk) 04:16, April 16, 2010 (UTC)
I sent an e-mail to the contact address. We'll see how it goes from here. --Imperialles 16:00, April 19, 2010 (UTC)
Technically the history page would need to be linked to in order to fully and properly attribute the authors (i.e. everyone who has edited the article), but it's not really a big deal if you guys don't want to make an issue out of it. - Brandon Rhea(talk) 15:10, April 20, 2010 (UTC)
Right, well, we tend to look the other way when Lucasfilm pulls stuff like this. Seeing as they own the Star Wars license on which our entire site is based, and all that. --Imperialles 00:53, April 23, 2010 (UTC)
Haha, well you can't claim they didn't reference us. It's got the . Maybe we just can't see the ship's computer's references section :) —Xwing328(Talk) 05:24, April 23, 2010 (UTC)
