My talk page. Formerly known as 43.224 on Fandom.--MCpillager - remember, a build list is just a lot of numbers. 09:13, 10 April 2019 (BST)

Moving pages

Microsoft/Part Numbers isn't needed. Please that only for builds; the previous case should just be Microsoft Part Numbers. Categories are a better way to group non-builds. X010 (talk) 18:00, 18 April 2019 (BST)


Please do not plagarise content from BetaWiki, like the templates. (I have left it anyways, as it's not a good place for me). If I see any of your contibs taken from BetaWiki, they will be undone or deleted,. Thank you. --SebOno (Let's have a talk!) (Sandbox) elcomeWay otay etaArchiveBay ikiWay! 18:41, 22 April 2019 (BST)

@SebOno and @WILSON2bGg There isn't any set rule that prevents taking ideas from other wikis. In fact, I would not prohibit taking templates from other sites (I've done it myself; see Template:Quote), but they must be imported instead (so that the contribution history from the other wiki must be preserved).

Please do not delete pages that are not for technical or maintenance reasons - please report them to me instead. Movers should not delete them. X010 (talk) 18:55, 22 April 2019 (BST)
@X010 This user did a direct copy+paste of BetaWiki templates, with no attempt to modify them for this wiki. If that’s not the definition of plagiarism, I don’t know what is. If we let this behavior continue, we’re going to be the ultimate copy+paste wiki. WILSON2bGg (talk) 18:58, 22 April 2019 (BST)
@WILSON2bGg I just wanted to improve the wiki, and I did NOT copypaste the box template from BetaWiki, I took it from Wikimedia Commons.--MCpillager - remember, a build list is just a lot of numbers. 07:41, 23 April 2019 (BST)

User:MCpillager, I appreciate your intention to help, but we have our own policies - some of them which are already in BetaArchive Wiki:Wiki Guidelines - and some of them which will be formed when appropriate. In general, please do not take policies from other wikis, and do not copy-paste content directly from other sources (including templates unless imported), as we need to satisfy attribution requirements. If you need anything to be imported, please let me know instead, and I encourage you to discuss your plans with the community. Thanks in advance. X010 (talk) 19:06, 22 April 2019 (BST)
