If anyone has a problem with one of my changes, please contact me with the problem so I can avoid making that mistake again.
Another wiki using articles from this site.
The wiki (http://emulation-general.wikia.com/wiki/Emulation_General_Wiki) has many "copy and pasted" articles from this wiki. Since it is another wiki like this one I was wondering if anyone could tell me whether it is ok to use information from their wiki in this one, as sharing information would benefit both wiki's.
- According to Wikia's Talk Page the wikia version is the old/original site, but the admins had trouble with Wikia (which is run by non-reliable organization) so admins got a new server space, which is gametechwiki.com. Both wikis are run by same admin (User:Murrigan) so I don't think there are much problems of copy-paste and information sharing (unless admins say otherwise). 18.104.22.168 23:29, 18 October 2015 (EDT)
Information from Wikipedia
Is it OK for content from Wikipedia to be used here or is the a licensing issue.
- Unless the admins say otherwise, I don't think there are much problems using Wikipedia as a base or reference. If you click Edit button there is a notice saying "You are also promising us that you wrote this yourself, or copied it from a public domain or similar free resource (see Emulation General Wiki:Copyrights for details)". This Wiki doesn't have any specific Copyright guideline, but I'm sure Wikipedia counts as a "similar free resource" (GNU Free Documentation License). There are already two copy-pasted Wikipedia pages anyway.22.214.171.124 22:01, 29 November 2015 (EST)
