  • You may already know of this, but many concerns have been raised about you copying content from the other Smash Wiki. I cannot verify or deny these accusations, as I only recently returned from my brief absence. I do plan on looking further into it tomorrow, but in the meantime, I strongly encourage you to explain your actions here, as neither me, Plasmaster, nor anyone else knows more about what you did than you yourself. Plagiarism is a serious issue, and any issue concerning it needs to be dealt with.

    • A closer inspection has verified these reports. I am not banning you, as I believe you made these edits in good faith. However, I have closed your RfA because this is simply not behavior that anyone, especially admins, should be doing. Not only that, but you have ignored this and everything related to the issue, when admins need to be accountable for their actions and be ready to speak in issues concerning them.

      I understand the urge to copy content from SmashWiki, as they are ahead of us in many aspects. But not only is copying their content wrong, it also robs us of an identity. What is the purpose of us existing if we're exactly the same as something else? If we can't be ourselves, then we might as well merge with SmashWiki.

      I hope you can continue editing here to the best of your ability and that there is no bad blood between us. Don't give up on this!

    • I see and I completely understand your decision and situation. For my upcoming edits on all the playable characters in Brawl, I plan on rewriting most of the information from scratch and I will try and clean up most of the edits that I find was taken directly from SmashWiki. I do apologize for this inconvenience and will try my best to undo most of the edits I made that may seem to be plagiarized from a different source.

    • Your edits to Mario (SSBB) and Luigi (SSBB) were nearly completely identical to SmashWiki's version. Please uphold your promise to write these from scratch, as otherwise they will be undone.
