Talk:Kingdom of Drakkar

From Codex Gamicus
Jump to: navigation, search

I am commenting here as directed. I am a sysop for Kingdom of Drakkar and all the information I posted in Wiki Gaming for Kingdom of Drakkar comes directly from its own Story page http://www.kingdomofdrakkar.com/story.php with the full permission and knowledge of the creator/owner of said game, Brad Lineberger. You are welcome to contact him at help@drakkarzone.com to verify this.

This same information and more are also found at http://kingdomofdrakkar.gamepedia.com/Kingdom_of_Drakkar_Wiki as the Home page.

I am grateful that http://www.freemmorpglist.com/Kingdom_of_Drakkar-mmorpg.html has added Kingdom of Drakkar to their list of MMORPGs

I respect the challenge made to make certain we are authentic.

I'm not sure if the page contents are allowed or not (eg. I'm not sure if Brad agreed to license the text under the Creative Commons BY-SA license, a requirement for nearly all Wiki wikis and I haven't emailed him as you suggested), but there's another matter to consider as well.
That is this: we can't use this text as-is as it's too much like advertising. The entire article would need to be rewritten to conform to the neutral point-of-view policy in place on Wiki Gaming.
It seems to me that it would be best to sidestep the potential licensing/legal issues and just create a new article from scratch. - Adan Aileron (talk) 01:19, December 25, 2010 (UTC)
Though I am authorized to use all the content, I see your point on neutrality. I will redo this in a more broad and general manner. InfinitySYSOP 01:59, December 29, 2010 (UTC)
I have redone this page, removing everything. I no longer see the notice about Deletion Review and I'm not sure if you removed it or I may have when I removed the contents. I never touched the Category tags at the bottom. InfinitySYSOP 14:07, December 29, 2010 (UTC)
Thanks again for the guidance, it's much appreciated. Obviously this is all new to me. I wouldn't mind an objective analysis of the Wiki page I created Kingdom of Drakkar Wiki. I utilized both help pages and category pages for different methods of access and got mixed reactions from the players (and no contributions!). I do intend to replace the Home page that what I used here but hope from some advice on how to better it.
Anyway, thanks again, this is a much better look and very simple. InfinitySYSOP 00:11, December 31, 2010 (UTC)
