Kleinstocks

nyssane, I took a look at your profile on the Kleinstocks and I'm reluctant to approve it as is. It needs to cover all three brothers and their history from the very beginning rather than just focusing on the surviving two. Also, it should be listed under 'Kleinstock Brothers' rather than just 'Kleinstocks'. --ComiX-Fan 05:35, 4 May 2006 (EDT)

Also, could you please use the term "Unrevealed" instead of "Unknown"? Things like real names etc are known, just not to us readers :) --ComiX-Fan 11:14, 5 May 2006 (EDT)

Rewording text is still plagiarizing

nyssane, please do not plagiarize (copy) from other websites. One reason is that it can cause legal problems down the line for Marvel or the website you are copying it from. Because of that, we want the profiles here to be original text. Another reason is we cannot guarantee that the information is correct, especially from a site like Wikipedia, where people can edit without it being verified.
Taking the text from Wikipedia and rewording it to look different is just the same as copying it. We want posters to type original content as well as text. Your content was exactly the same as the Wikipedia version.
Because of this, the Anaconda profile can not be approved and again was deleted. Hope this helps you understand things a little better. If not the feel free to ask questions. --DragynWulf 16:32, 10 September 2006 (EDT)

Alright, I understand a smidgen more. But, how am I supposed to write an in-depth profile on a character with a few dozen appearances when everything is all on wikipedia? It makes it virtually impossible.nyssane 17:01, 10 September 2006 (EDT)

The Moderators talked it over and what it comes down to is we are trying to stop posters from just copying from websites and Handbooks (in other words plagiarizing). When someone take existing text and just rewords it to look like their own work, it is the same. By doing this we are only trying to protect Marvel and the original authors of such text.
However, if it is your own text that you are copying from, then it is okay. Because it doesn't come from your own website, it can be hard to tell who did what with a website like Wikipedia because anyone can add what ever and when ever. So my apology, but we are only trying to treat those that wrote the original text with respect. You just happened to get caught in the crossfire so to speak.
With that said, you are welcome to repost the first version you posted today, which I deleted again just so you know, but for other reasons. However before it can be approved (and before you repost it) you need to use a spell check program on the text because there are a lot of typos. A few examples would be annonymous is spelled anonymous, initation is spelled initiation and feauturing is spelled featuring. Once that is done, I can approve it. --DragynWulf 21:43, 10 September 2006 (EDT)

I'd like to rephrase a part of what I said above because I forgot to mention it and it is incorrect.
posters from just copying from websites and Handbooks (in other words plagiarizing).
I ment to say "posters from just copying from websites (in other words plagiarizing). It is okay to take the text from the Handbooks, but we'd prefer your to site your source of that text in order to give credit where it is due, which is to the Handbook writer." --DragynWulf 00:10, 11 September 2006 (EDT)

Princess Python

Looks like your Princess Python post from back in December was never approved. Can you post it again? If you need the text again, please reply and I can send it to you. --MikeFichera 21:43, 14 March 2007 (CDT), moderator

Yesss, could you please send the Princess Python, along with Rattler, Rock Python, and Fer-de-Lance to me? I'd really appretiate it! nyssane 22:40, 27 April 2007 (CDT)
