User talk:BlackMustangInc

Blackmustanginc, in a biography, take the perspective as if you are writing from someone within the Marvel Universe. Do not refer to the comics as actual books (i.e. "In the last adventure of her comic book") or to titles of story arcs. See the Guidelines on the Main Page. --MikeFichera 13:46, 5 June 2006 (EDT), Moderator

Since the notes on Recent Changes don't allow enough space for me to spell this out clearly there, I'm posting to your User Talk page. DO NOT plagiarise other sites, as you did with the Spike entry lifted word for word from the Marvel Appendix. Please note that while plagiarism is wrong, plagiarising THAT site is also unwise, as most of the moderators are connected to it, will soon spot what you have done, and WILL NOT be impressed. Likewise, DO NOT lift images from other people's sites without getting their permission. It is ill-mannered to do so. If you persist in doing either of these things, I will request that the Sysop ban you. Stuart Vandal 14:21, 6 June 2006 (EDT)

Your latest addition, to Nick Fury's profile, is taken from Wikipedia's SHIELD entry (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/S.H.I.E.L.D.). Care to explain what appears to be yet another case of plagiarism? Stuart Vandal 16:58, 6 June 2006 (EDT), Moderator

Other cases of plagery: Spider-Woman (Witter) and Hank Pym. Please write your own work or use the Handbooks.--MikeFichera 12:20, 7 June 2006 (EDT)

I apologize all. It won't happen again. but how would I go about going permission from website for the Pics? I downloaded those pics from google. and If I rewrote what the articles I've posted would they be accepted? --BlackMustangInc

"how would I go about going permission from website for the Pics? I downloaded those pics from google" Either scan images yourself, or else, having located an image on google, go to the website it is on AND ASK the site owner if you can repost the image. "and If I rewrote what the articles I've posted would they be accepted?" No. Contrary to what some people online think, doing a superficial rewrite to rearrange the words of someone else's work remains plagiarism. Also, as per Marvel.com policy, we don't use information from websites because the accuracy can't be guaranteed. There are many websites out there full of erroneous information we'd like to ensure Marvel.com isn't one of them, and that means going first and foremost to Marvel's own comics and Handbooks.

Ok Thankyou for the input. For right now I'll just be using Marvel Encyclopedia. considering how it's kinda old I'll just add prudent information.
