Would you mind checking out the Community Noticeboard? I have a couple things cooking there. And I'd like your opinion on this. Should we have a Hall of Fame or something like that? I don't know, I've just been thinking about it.
I'll head over now. As for a Hall of Fame that's a great idea! Since we all will eventully retire from editing one day it would be good for future users to know how the wiki was buit and what users had the biggest impact. We'll have to come up with a system on how we will induct users though. Great idea.
It's really unfortunate that Wikia doesn't protect the content on wikis so people like this can't steal our work. There is really nothing we can do besides contacting the uploader which you've already done. I wonder if YouTube would do anything about it.
Jim I just saw the video and it really isn't stealing any info fron us. The creator of the video my have read about the myth here and was inspired to make this video, but threre is no word for word copyright infringment I see.
Alright so he referenced junkyard killer and didn't give credit to the wiki. There will be people like this who are fans of the wiki and try and spread what they read here to a third part audience. I don't think it's worth the trouble with YouTube to file a complaint. Plus I saw how you told him in the comments that he did not give proper credit. I doubt he will do this again.
"I didn't copy the exact words I actually typed it out all of it If it looks the same Im sorry! not my problem and you have no rights to delete this video because ...
1. This is a myth investigation 2. The words used in that info paragraph aren't owned by anyone. 3.Why Don't U dare go on other myth hunters that are probably way bigger than me and rant about that there...
Hope you understand !"
So, apparently, he's allowed to copy info because he typed it out instead of copy and pasting, just because it's a myth investigation he can get off scot free, that Wikia's info doesn't belong to anybody and that we should attack large myth hunters, and not him just because of size.
Yeah, this guy's pretty dumb. Let's go through the copyright process.
Hey Rob, KingRhem created an Arabic version of the Wiki, as seen on the homepage. This will allow us to grow huge, becuase we used to be able to reach 1 foreign country (Poland,) but now we reach 28 non-Anglosphere countries.
Hey Sasquatch, someone made this Freddy Kreuger page, and the page mentions one of the serial killer poems written by the Infinity Killer. Seeing how the poem is the only "evidence" for Freddy Krueger, should we just delete the Freddy page? Then we can just add that info into the Serial Killer poem page.

Hey there, the only reason I wanted to delete it is because the Serial Killer Nursery Rhyme page is very similar. But I'll acknowledge the fact that the poem is very similar to Freddy Kreuger's. So, I guess the page can stay.
Think of it like Google Maps. You don't search "Beirut" in the Google Chrome search bar, you type it in the Maps GUI. Same thing here. You don't do anything to the maps that isn't part of the GUI. To add a waypoint, and some other stuff, it's in the lower right hand side.
Sorry for late reply, accidentally posted this in the main thread
Myth hunter has been pointsgaming this morning and messing up pages by bolding words and just adding unneeded info. I've left him a messsage informing him on this but I still think you should check his edits out if you're around.
I was shifting through some of the old RfPs and CNB posts and I noticed a disturbing trend - bureaucrat only votes always fail. The winner becomes whoever edits the page first rather than the democratic way it should be. We should probably get rid of B'crat only votes until we get a 3rd bureacrat so that votes are actually viable and not you or me edit warring over yes and no.
The reason why Bureaucrats are only allowed to vote is because everyone else has a vested interest in being promoted. Besides we don't need 3 bureaucrats on a wiki of this size. Furthermore, the GTA Wiki has the same Policy on promoting other bureaucrats.
Rather than having specialty made videos just for the channel, I think we should host videos from myth hunters that seek more views or just want to share videos with us. Of course, we'll need some sort of quality level and an application forum for videos.
Come on! It was my idea and I also made the logo and back ground picture and I am a master in youtube and I know how to make subscribers and a ot of views at least please give me a part in the channel.
