  • I still think what you did was wrong and should not be encouraged.

    • Trust me making that blog wasn't something I enjoyed doing. I don't usually like to go into wiki politics.

      But after considering the situation over a long time, I found there were a lot of things wrong with what was going on, and I think it is necessary to address this issue. I think discussion should be encouraged, because there are inconsistent messages sent out about plagiarism acceptability. As such, I don't think what I did was wrong.

      If you disagree with the way the admins reacted to my message, that is more of their resort than mine. Note I did't particularly ask to have pages deleted.

      Yes but they still deleted the pages and they are too inexperienced.

  • Hey there, at the behest of your blog, I deleted many pages from the Pixar wiki that have no real relevance here (like background characters etc).

    A little later I can go through the pages we have here to see how much content is from the Pixar wiki, and I can see what I can do to change them.

    Have a Magical Day! (Talk)

    • Hello, thanks a lot for your efforts!

      I was wondering if any additional measures that have been taken, and if so what they are? Just trying to keep track of what's hapenning...

      I know it can be challenging to find how much is copied since the history of it is pretty long; what I do usually is look through the page history for abnormally large edits from particular users, and compare it with Pixar Wiki's state at the same time... If ever you need help, I would be happy to help.

      I should mention that to uniformize them one user has been copying some content from Disney Wiki to Pixar Wiki, which makes the picture less clear for some big pages. It's an issue I will try to address on Pixar Wiki. He has also being adding original content to both wikis at the same time but I am not sure to what extent.

      One thing I would like to mention; I see that you deleted the page Huge Warrior... I don't know what were the reasons for its deletion, but I know that that page wasn't taken from Pixar Wiki (its equivalent there is quite different). Just thought I'd let you know.

      Thanks!

    • Right now, the Disney wiki has a lot to do in the way of editing, so we can get to the Pixar pages when we can.

      If there are any pages you see that are copied, list em, and we can get to them when we can.

      I can totally understand that. I am not expecting the whole thing to change overnight. This wiki is huge, must be a lot of work...

      If there are any pages you see that are copied, list em, and we can get to them when we can.

      Ok, I'll do what you propose if it happens. I guess I will now "wait and see", see how things evolve from now on.

      Thanks,

      Gray Catbird

  • Hey would you like to affiliate Pixar Wiki with Lucasfilm Wiki?

    • Good news! The other admin is fine with having Lucasfilm Wiki affiliated, and I guess I have no problem with it either.

  • Hi!

    I have another question for you. You know I'm kind of new to Wikia, so I don't know how to solve this one. I'm trying to make an article in the Dreamworks Wiki about the Doris (the ugly stepsister) in Shrek. The thing is, I want to add one of those tables that they place under the character pictures in some articles. I've seen that here in the Disney Wiki, and in some others.

    Thank You in Advance

    • Hi Juanmaseta, I have never edited the Dreamworks Wiki, but I think I see what is your problem. If I understand well, you're trying to include and infobox like wikis commonly place at the top right of pages, right ? Usually this is done via a template.

      Hum, if you don't know what is a template, then I can try to explain: in essence, it is a page whose content can be included into another page. So if you give the name of the template on a page (in this form: {{name of template here}}) it will be included on it. I see that on Dreamworks Wiki the template for characters is called {{Infobox character}}. In the visual editor, a template will take the form of a green puzzle piece. If you hover on it, you will see a preview of the resulting infobox, as well as a "edit" button at the bottom. If you click on it, you can edit the parameters that control what the template displays...

      I might've been too confusing here... If so, and for further information, you can always check out Help:Templates and Help:Infobox... I hope that helps a bit!
