Forums: Index Narutopedia Discussion Our content on other wikia
Note: This topic has been unedited for 1069 days. It is considered archived - the discussion is over. Do not add to unless it really needs a response.

So I have been recently looking around at the other naruto related wiki's on wikia, and noticed they use our content without credit (and one even ripped off leafninja). I have left a message on two of the active wiki's that use our but they believe a single disclaimer on the front page is sufficient to copy our content. For the narutofanon wiki, I understand that is has over 17k pages, and we regularly redirect our users there, so I guess I am fine with a single notice there and future additions to be given credit. I know we have had a couple problems in the past with other wikis copying our content and they have been since shut down. Anyways, any thoughts on the adequacies of a single disclaimer for copyright? — SimAnt 22:55, May 21, 2013 (UTC)

so is what your saying that other naruto wikias cannot have similar jutsu pages on it.--TrueShinobi (talk) 23:07, May 21, 2013 (UTC)

No, I'm saying word for word copies without credit are in violation of CC-BY-SA License. — SimAnt 23:11, May 21, 2013 (UTC)

Ah ok i was just wondering what you meant--TrueShinobi (talk) 23:15, May 21, 2013 (UTC)

I think we work too darn hard to have people create other Naruto-related wikis and just copy and paste our content. I mean it doesn't hurt us any, but it's the principle behind it. I had over 10 edits on one and had never been there before. I believe it's all right for fanon wikias since most of them (the 2 I vaguely remember) actually redirected to our wikia. Disclaimers are fine. I would prefer that it was in the articles themselves with maybe a link to the wikia/canon content but for the ones doing the same thing we are, I say we follow the protocol we were given in the past when this issue came up and have them closed down if they fail to adhere to Wiki's guidelines to doing stuff like that.--Cerez365Hyūga Symbol(talk) 01:07, May 22, 2013 (UTC)
I contacted wikia and asked if a sole disclaimer on the home page is sufficient, and was told that attribution is needed on every article. A few wiki's I have concerns with are: which kept copying articles after I asked them to attribute, and which describes itself as an archive of narutopedia for a online game. As for narutofanon, they agreed to encourage users to credit our content which is a satisfactory sentiment given their size. — SimAnt 18:29, May 22, 2013 (UTC)
I'm also on Naruto Fandom wikia and how can we ask for permission to use Information from you what links do we put? --ROOT 根 (talk) 18:34, May 22, 2013 (UTC)
Asking to use content is not required, you are allowed to copy it as long as it follows the license. I tried to discuss it with your founder, yet your wiki admins have continued adding content without attribution beyond a insufficient main page notice after I asked. — SimAnt 18:57, May 22, 2013 (UTC)
A template linking to the original article (like the {{wikipedia}} that we use) should suffice.--~ UltimateSupreme 12:06, May 26, 2013 (UTC)
I see a representative from one of the wikis you linked is here and willing to work something out. I've always found that people respond to action when they don't heed words. If we can't get a response from them, then we escalate the issue.--Cerez365Hyūga Symbol(talk) 12:24, May 26, 2013 (UTC)
