Wikipedia Listing

Post by Tachyon » Tue Feb 08, 2005 2:43 pm

Woohoo! Wikipedia links to the Gears Online FSS pages!
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Five_Star_Stories

The thing is, their entry copies lots of text from Gears Online and they didn't ask permission. Ah, well. Could be worse.

Congrats for getting listed on Wikipedia!
Maybe you should email them about it.
You might get listed as the author. :D

If you go to that entry, you'll notice Nagano Mamoru's name is underlined. It leads to a description that is copied from the Gears Online Designers Page. The only difference is one sentence is tacked on the end that I didn't write.

It looks like I've got 2 listings on Wikipedia.

Gratz ~!! :D

Actually I've also juz discovered the FSS pages in Wikipedia just one day before, not sure how long it's been there....

If the text that they copied from Gears are your own, then I think you deserve some form of acknowledgement! I must say I am very disappointed at how they get their contents, and look at their Copyright section and claims! Now THEY OPENINGLY GRANT your work to be used by anybody else - without your knowledge! I'm shocked@!! :shock: :x
Looking for:
- FSS Eng Vol 1(Black cover)

You know... The idea behind Wikipedia is that anyone can edit any page of it, right?

Therefore, I popped in and edited the FSS page, and BAM! Credit given.

Cool. Thanks, Astray. :D

Maybe we'll get more FSS fans visiting here as a result.
