My contributions

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). 66.249.82.128 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).
