Forums: Index Watercooler Smashpedia is using our information

I know our information is not copyrighted, but look at this. Someone has done it more than once. Shouldn't they put a notice on there, telling people that it came from another source? We do that if we take information from Wikipedia, as seen here, for example. John John3637881 Signature.png PK SMAAAASH!! 11:18, 18 January 2016 (EST)

This is nothing new. We really don't have control over that, and honestly, I don't really think we collectively care. Serpent SKSig.png King 11:21, 18 January 2016 (EST)

Wholesale copying of templates, images, and paragraphs in bulk is most certainly not okay if attribution is not provided. I'm going to stir the pot on this one. Toomai Glittershine ??? The Obfuscating 11:26, 18 January 2016 (EST)

What exactly can we do though? Serpent SKSig.png King 11:27, 18 January 2016 (EST)
Upon further research, it looks like it's all just one guy. I think reporting him to the admins should be a good first step. Toomai Glittershine ??? The Zesty 11:52, 18 January 2016 (EST)
Agreed. Ganonmew, The Evil Clone 11:59, 18 January 2016 (EST)

I hate to bring it up again, but...[edit]

Some Smashpedia pages still have information that is identical to ours, such as this. I specifically remember writing some of the information on that page. This is another page to have information directly taken from our wiki. Someone needs to go over there and make sure all of this stuff is removed.

I just let Toomai know, since he dealt with this last time. Looking over it, it seems that it's the same guy. Serpent SKSig.png King 13:24, 10 February 2016 (EST)
K I just let the admins know again. Looked into it and they directly copied both Template:Victory/SSBM and Template:Crowd as well as several images/files that I have uploaded. We'll see what happens from here. Serpent SKSig.png King 04:15, 12 February 2016 (EST)
