    Would those of you with Wikia accounts want to remove all the content copied word for word on our page as a copyright/license violation? TTE, please get up their admins. I notice they've removed the message about not copying us.

    I'd like to note that we respect the enforcement of our copyright, but at the same time--and this goes for all users--don't vandalize. Stuff that doesn't belong, though, feel free to take down.

    Oyy. If they haven't responded to the message I left them by tomorrow, it's all-out war. I'll go to those who oversee TPE and have them kill it if I can.

    This is fucking unbelievable.

    Something really needs to be done about this.

    "All-out war" will result in non-compliance, FYI. TTEchidna, grow up.

    Anyway, I can't even compare the articles properly because I can't even access Bulbapedia. I received a 403 Forbidden error when trying to access Archaic's link in the OP

    To follow up on Magnedeth, changing one or two words, or the order of the bullet points, doesn't insulate you from a copyright violation. If it's in substantially the same condition, it's stealing. And we intend to enforce our copyright, just as we expect you'd enforce yours.

I rather expect she didn't realize the guy running the show here teaches these kinds of business subjects at university.

    In any case, given the current conflict, obviously there's still a need for this warning to be up there, isn't it?

    Well, my opinion of vigilantes was already rising after seeing Watchmen. It's not like he's vandalizing an existing article over there either. Not one of our users as far as I know, so perhaps we have a few friends out there.
