First, then why copy it?

Second, you can copy from wikipedia. Eg http://www.answers.com/StarCraft and about a zillion other sites. PsiSeveredHead 21:45, 6 July 2007 (UTC)

I'd like to say also that I'm really opposed to copying material straight from Wikipedia. Apart from the appearance of such pages being very different from the rest of this site (with the exception of this page, NOTHING on this wiki should include statements like "the best-selling computer game" or "in the StarCraft universe," not to mention links like Terran (StarCraft) and the like), copying stuff wholesale from Wikipedia is, unless you wrote it yourself, essentially plagiarism. - Dark T Zeratul 06:45, 7 July 2007 (UTC)
Its only plagiarism if you claim you wrote something that was actually written by someone else. Wikipedia content is explicitly not copyrighted, you can copy it as you wish. I generally consider it a /good/ idea to copy a relevant Wikipedia article, if it is decent and not in need of a major overhaul anyway, and using that as a starting point. Otherwise you'll have to start from scratch ... if Wikipedia already has a good start on an article, why re-invent the wheel? --Chibiabos 14:22, 7 July 2007 (UTC)

Note that, when taking stuff off of wikipedia, it is a good idea, as Dark T Zeratul suggests, to format it for this wiki. I'm ... very slowly ... going through pages and fixing stuff like that, usually at the same time I'm putting in references.

Also wikipedia is deleting articles. They even deleted Sarah Kerrigan, despite being a well-known character often referenced outside of StarCraft. PsiSeveredHead 15:31, 7 July 2007 (UTC)

About this edit

Well if you wanted to delete this article. Fine go ahead. Calling what i did was plagiarism and other crap. I dont appericate. Mind your tongue next time.

The only edit to the article itself has this comment: "18:31, 6 July 2007 210.214.40.152 (Talk | block) (Copying from wikipedia. The article is going to get deleted.)"

That's what I'm responding to. Since only one person edited this article, I'm talking to that person. Who are you talking to? (PS please sign your name next time.) PsiSeveredHead 22:49, 7 July 2007 (UTC)
