How, pray tell, did Wikipedia give you such permission? --SVTCobra 17:29, 28 March 2008 (UTC)

All the copyrightable changes were by one user. --Anonymous101 (talk · contribs) 18:41, 28 March 2008 (UTC)

I'm not convinced. Can you provide proof? Until you can, I think this should be flagged as a potential copyvio. There are also the issues of formatting style, and the fact that WP is not, to my knowledge, considered a reliable source. --GW_SimulationsUser Page | Talk 18:55, 28 March 2008 (UTC)
I am working on the issues you describe by checking the facts and correcting formatting. Here is a diff comparing the ervision of the article I used to the last revision not edited by him (although he had written morst of the original version anyway.)

All the copyrightable changes were by one user (w:User:Everyking). In addition to giving me clear permission here, he releases all is edits into the public domain (http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=User:Everyking&oldid=185594404) --Anonymous101 (talk · contribs) 18:41, 28 March 2008 (UTC)

Hi,

I have noticed that many users have, reasonably, been doubtful of my claims that this is public domain. I accept this was entirely my fault as I should have backed up my claims with more evidence, and I did not do so as I was short on time. I apologize to the editors who have had to se their time asking me to back up my claims. I should have backed this up instantly. My failure to do so was a mistake which I hope not to repeat.

Wikipedia is not the osurce. The source articles are. --Anonymous101 (talk · contribs) 19:04, 28 March 2008 (UTC)

(And even f I weren't checking the source, I'd trust the edits of an experienced Wikipedia admin who has edited for five years)--Anonymous101 (talk · contribs) 19:13, 28 March 2008 (UTC)
