I don't really know what forum to put this in, but this wiki page is completely plagarized from Wikipedia.org.
This Wiki Page is Plagarized...
This topic is locked from further discussion.
"Well, I can live edit...but I didn't know if there was something that needed to be done about plagarism other than editing it. I mean, despite whether it's edited or not, whoever found their Ctrl+C combo is still going to have points for being unoriginal."
I'm pretty sure you're supposed to report it. It's not complaining, you did the right thing.
Ok I'm not getting at anyone here personally, rather just using this topic as an example.
If you believe a page may have been the victim of plagiarism then please do contact a Wiki Moderator. They will deal with the page and any culprits who have abused the Wiki system we have here. Abuse of the Wiki in any form should be reported to a Wiki Mod, much like abuse of the Forum should be reported to a Form Mod. For a list of Wiki Mods check out the Wiki FAQ here. I know some of you may not know all or who is a Wiki Mod, but never hesitate to contact them with Wiki related issues. They might not post much but they are always doing work behind the scenes here and are a lot more friendly than the Forum Mods :P
I've notified a Wiki Mod of this topic.
Gotcha, Hamz. I know Bodega is a Wiki Mod, so I'll just spam his inbox with that shit next time. I just didn't know if there was, like, a forum for this kind of thing, or if it was strictly just a "contact a mod" kind of thing...

"Even though it's a blatant copy from the wikipedia page I don't think it counts a plagiarism as wikipedia don't really have authorship over their content as it's entirely editable. Still wrong though."The issue is we here at GiantBomb do NOT want to see information in our database lifted directly from an outside source ;)
Anyway locking this now!
