One of our users was looking on the "Villains" wiki which you are an administrator on and pointed out that some of the pages have been copied and pasted from our wiki to yours, because you had not contributed to the pages on the wiki, and created the pages on your wiki: by that you aren't a joint author to the pages, you have performed plagiarism which your wiki clearly states in the rules it is against. Our wiki in general is copy-left, meaning if you had contributed to the pages then legally you are allowed to use them as your own, and what I mean is, actual contribution not just say adding an extra line, punctuation then removing it.
Plagiarism (Whenever possible only post original content - copying directly from other wikis or online sources is plagiarism and is frowned upon by the community as it gives a bad name not only to yourself but to us and can cause copyright dileemas. Just because something is on the internet doesn't mean its right (or even legal) to claim it as your own - Articles that are obviously taken from other wikis will be deleted as a matter of principle.)
Look we know plagiarism is a terrible thing and if it happened, we weren't aware and are sorry for it. It's not like we just pretended we didn't realize pages were plagiarized. If you'll just tell me which pages are plagiarized, I'll mark them as such and they'll be fixed.
