Hello, this is Chukonu xbow, and I am making a request to you. It would seem you copied my entire user page. However, in doing so, the userboxes at the bottom falsely state that you are Poketrainer7 and Fl4sh U Di3d in Runescape, and Chukonu xbow in Wikipedia. As for my request, if you would do this:
-Delete the userboxes that state you are Poketrainer7 and Fl4sh u Di3d in Runescape
-Delete the userbox that states you are Chukonu xbow in Wikipedia
-Change the userbox that states you are in the Abyssal Legion, unless you happen to be a A L member
-And at least give me some credit...I mean, you copied my whole userpage.
Thanks again! Chukonu xbow 20:27, 28 June 2008 (UTC)
- I'm going to follow this up with my own comment. You've also copied User:Leevclarke and replaced the name. Now, using someone's code to build your own talk page is one thing. Copying their personal information is another. I must ask that you alter the information on your userpage until it is no longer clear that it is a direct copy/paste from someone else's userpage. --Andorin (Talk) (Contribs) 22:48, 28 June 2008 (UTC)
- Yes, I have just noticed this myself. In at least one place you have even forgotten to change the name of my character (Max) to your own. You also appear to be using some ideas I posted on the forums as if they were your own (such as the bumper stickers), and claim that your picture of Varrock fountain was used in the featured article in January 2008, when in fact it was mine. This is pretty serious stuff in my book.
- Of course I don't mind you using my user page for inspiration on content or layout, but you must know that simply copying and pasting my profile onto your page is not on. I am going to assume that this is a simple oversight on your part, but please rectify this ASAP. I am going to check with other people and find out whether I can do this myself without your permission - I notice you have not updated your page or contributed since June.
Okay, I am going to put some rationale behind this.
Dear Mr webster6:
I have noticed that you are making use of a RuneScape Wiki userpage as part of your userpage, User:Mr webster6. It includes material from the RuneScape Wiki userpages User:Leevclarke and User:Chukonu xbow, which are located at https://runescape.wiki/w/User:Leevclarke and https://runescape.wiki/wiki/User:Chukonu_xbow , respectively. RuneScape Wiki encourages the redistribution of its content. However, it is necessary to comply with the terms of our license, the GNU Free Documentation License (GFDL). Failure to do so is a copyright violation. The text of the GFDL can be found at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/WP:GFDL . That is the only legally binding document. One of the most important steps is to mention the GFDL. At the bottom of every page that uses RuneScape Wiki material, you should include text similar to, "This page is based on the copyrighted RuneScape Wiki article (put article name here); it is used under the GNU Free Documentation License. You may redistribute it, verbatim or modified, providing that you comply with the terms of the GFDL." You should link the text "GNU Free Documentation License" to a copy of the text of the GFDL on your own server. Also, we strongly recommend that you link back to the original article; this is a means to comply with certain GFDL requirements.
Thank you for your cooperation.
