I'm curious about the Gaslight summary. You completely rewrote my entry. While I understand that people can feel proprietary about their wikis, was there something wrong with the way I wrote it? I'm happy to contribute, but if you have some specific style or format you only want used, is there a guide posted somewhere?
Actually, the summary is one that I wrote for TVRage.com. I'm a site moderator there under the name Gadfly. I posted it last night at 12:44 a.m. Other summaries have been taken from TVRage as well.
So we'd really appreciate it if you not copy our recaps without our express permission. If you want to credit TVRage and myself when you post them, in a manner we find satisfactory, and link to our site in a way we specify, that would be fine. We've worked out similar arrangements in the past with other wikis. If that's not acceptable, please remove our copyrighted work from the site.
Obviously someone posting our recaps here as summaries and saying that they did them themselves isn't acceptable.
If our ownership is contested, next week I will post my recap at TVRage, check here to confirm that there is no summary here at the time, and post the time I did it here. That should establish that it is ours if the summary here appears at a later time.
From what you said on my wall, "How about you take them done, don't ever edit the summaries.... and ah, call it a day? " So I will go ahead and do that
You did say, "And thanks, but if you do edit in that section you will be blocked." I have already made a few contributions to this wiki: are you saying I will be locked if I make more? Or only if I edit summaries?
I'm sorry, but I'm knd of confused. I thought we had it worked it out. You told me to take down the summaries here that were taken from TVRage. You've now put them back, but then credited TVRage. However, you have only done so for one recap, the most recent one.
If you'd like to use our recaps, that's fine, but as I noted, they would have to be credited to our satisfaction. That would certainly include crediting each recap.
I'd be glad to put them in for you, simply copying the existing link you created for Alphaville and adding my name as author (as I also said would have to be done to our satisfaction). But since you've alternated between telling me I'll be blocked if I edit the summaries, and telling me to edit/remove the summary, it's kind of unclear what you want done. Thanks!
"wouldn't it be simpler and faster for me". Not MK. :)
Why do you object to me posting my own recaps on this wiki? I can do it faster than anyone else, including yourself, since... well, I'll put them here two split seconds after I finish writing them. And since as I've mentioned, I usually do a second pass on them at TVRage, any spelling and grammar errors that I make the first time, I can come here and correct them here as well.
In fact, I can make the recaps a bit more "wiki friendly." For instance, when I'm writing narratively at TVRage, I tend not to name characters until they are named onscreen. But for a Wiki, I understand it's better to name the character as soon as they appear so you can get the link there first thing.
Otherwise... if I put a recap up, you're going to take it down and then put the exact same recap up yourself? That seems kinda odd.
Why not? Who knows what the future may hold. Any future ones will be the same quality as the current ones. If you don't like them, that's fine: I'll go ahead and remove them. TVRage is permitting them here as a courtesy, to yourself and to your users. Courtesy in return would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
The special thing about the Kern page is it previously had been a double-redirect and should have been fixed earlier, that happened because of the moving around.
The "Issac" link should have been fixed earlier too.
