Hi Forerunner, thanks for all your work on this wiki! I see that most of what you've done has been in copying over pages from Wikipedia. That's great, Wikipedia is a great source, and uses the same license as us. But that licence does require attribution, for example with the template Template:Wikipedia. All you need to do to use this, is to add it to the bottom of the article, in the form: {{Template:Wikipedia|Name of article}}, where "name of article" is the name of the Wikipedia article you used.

Another important aspect of using content from Wikipedia, is removing excess links and image links. We will never have an article on Butterflies, so if there were a link to that on a page here, it needs to be removed. The same with images that don't exist.

Remember, Wikipedia articles are a starting point, hopefully they will develop here to be more specific and more detailed. So transferring them cleanly is a good way to start on that. Thanks again for your work! -- sannse (talk) 18:39, 29 December 2006 (UTC)

Hi, you are still adding Wikipedia articles without attribution, which is a copyright violation. Please read the message above and make sure you add articles correctly. Your work is very much apreciated, but it must be done in the right way. -- sannse (talk) 12:05, 3 January 2007 (UTC) (Wikia community support)
