Talk:History of the Capellan Confederation

Cleanup[edit]

This article was not (originally) written for BTW and is written in-character, with opinions. It also needs to be sourced and updated, to bring it up to the standards expected on BTW. --Revanche (talk|contribs) 15:45, 21 April 2010 (UTC)

Worse, pretty much everything from 3050 Update down was directly copied from 20-Year Update, pages 58 to 62 specifically, and the other history files like this are the same. Cyc 21:18, 21 April 2010 (UTC)
Thank you, Cyc. --Revanche (talk|contribs) 21:51, 21 April 2010 (UTC)
I think it may be time for us to finally get rid of these. It may have been acceptable when the wiki was brand new, but it's hypocritical of us to remove new content that has had some work done to it, while keeping the copy-and-pasted text of these history articles. --Scaletail 01:44, 22 April 2010 (UTC)
Seconded. --Revanche (talk|contribs) 01:57, 23 April 2010 (UTC)
Would proper referencing save this and similar pages? I have the 1st ed MechWarrior and the 20 year update, but this week is heavy at work and I am commited to the Taurian Concordat Bios. If these pages can be saved, should they? If so, I will commit to that project after the Bios and units of the Concordat are done, though I can not say how long either project may take me.Deeppockets 03:39, 9 July 2010 (UTC)
No, issue isn't references, as indicated above we know where it comes from, its the fact its taken whole and verbatem from the existing sources is the problem, needs to be re-written whole to enlarge and improve it beyond just being a copy-paste. Cyc 06:17, 9 July 2010 (UTC)
Understood then. I see no reason to keep these if this information is present in correct form elsewhere. I concur withScaletail and recommend deletion.Deeppockets 11:49, 9 July 2010 (UTC)
