Sigh... this is what I mean by people directly copy and pasting stuff.

Look at GTO live action

http://wiki.crunchyroll.com/Great_Teacher_Onizuka_Live_Action#Crunchyroll_Links

The plot summary is copied directly from wikipedia. And its not even of the right thing. The none of that actually happened in the live action. Is it ok if we see wrong info to just delete the wrong bits altogether and leave it for other people to fix? I'm planning to fix the GTO live action tommorw when I get time.

Yeah, go ahead and delete that summary. It's especially great if you could write up a replacement.

I strongly agree we all need to stop using Wikipedia and other popular info sources as our personal cut-and-paste playground.

If anyone knows what a drama or such is about, but isn't good at writing - don't worry about it They can PM a summary a media mod or a frequent CR wiki contributor (ask first, though!) to have it edited/rewritten and returned for them to post it to CR wiki.

Thanks.

Edited:

A rule for Drama section:

Please put the cast/crew lists (all actors/directors/writers' names) in western style: Given name first, surname last.

Example:

Cast

Hayato Ichihara - Yûichi Hasumi
Shûgo Oshinari - Shusuke Hoshino
Ayumi Ito - Yôko Kuno
Takao Osawa - Tabito Takao

Crew

Director: Shunji Iwai
Writer: Shunji Iwai

Those who ignore this rule will only produce duplicate pages, which would mean a headache and page deletions.

So, please keep names in western style. Thanks.

So the reason why people are going to start using the CR Wiki over say Wikipedia or ANN is because our plot summaries are worded different? You said we should copy the details, but paraphase the rest. So basically everything is the same as those sites except the wording on some stuff is changed...I don't really understand why you're so against copying things from other sites. In my opinion, as long as its properly sited and the information is accurate, its fine to take w/e. I've entered a lot of pages on the anime section and there are some things that AAN doesn't have that Wikipedia might. But the opposite is true too. Thats one of the reasons I think people are going to start using the CR Wiki, because its more complete. The other reason is because Basou has said there is going to be stuff add that you won't find on any other site. I don't know what thats gonna be..but those are the reasons I think people are gonna use CR Wiki, not because we paraphrase plot summaries...

I don't know about everyone else but I basically look at a few sources then copy and paste the stuff that sounds best, then reference it. A lot of anime information sites copy and paste stuff from sites like ANN, AnimeNfo and AniDB. Most descriptions you find online were meant to be spread as long as you cite where it was from.

It's no big deal to copy stuff and all, but there are people who copy WHOLE pages from wiki which is pretty ridiculous. Sure you can copy a paragraph or two, but come on a whole page?

Yeah I was just afraid I might have been doing them all wrong and that would kinda suck to change them all
