Talk:The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time/Walkthrough
Did anybody contact Alex about copying this guide? Somebody needs to ask about whether we can change the guide (just for format reasons, keeping all of the main content) or remove attribution. I don't think this walkthrough is license-compatible. --Dslamngu 08:07, 6 January 2006 (PST)
No one asked, in fact I've been contact by more than four separate Wiki sites almost identical to this one and each time I've made it quite clear that the entire idea of just freely screwing around with someone else's work as you please is just wrong. Pretty much any author you contact will say the same thing, you don't work hard on something for it to be butchered by other people. I don't know who the admin is, or how the hell to contact them, but I can see in big bold print at the bottom "DO NO SUBMIT COPYRIGHTED WORK" and it looks like someone has done exactly that.
- Apparently, someone anonymous tried to screw up this site's reputation by posting your work here without your express permission. It's vandalism, it's outright copyright infringement, and it happens a lot on newborn wikis like this. As a workaround, the administration has disabled editing by anonymous users to exercise some control over who edits what... I hope you won't feel so bad about this site after what happened, for as a community we'll do whatever we can to prevent crap like that from occuring again. --Aeon17x 23:23, 6 January 2006 (PST)
- As the founder of this website, you have my sincere apology. The theft of your work was entirely an act of vandalism, and we have since dealt with it accordingly. Our future actions will not be different for any other act of copyright infringement. --Echelon 02:44, 8 January 2006 (PST)
I'm not sure if this will cause a massive annoyance considering all of the Zelda: Ocarina of Time/[insert title here] related pages, but the corrects title of the game is The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, and it should probably be fixed sooner rather than later. Same goes for Majora's Mask. - Ashandarei 09:12, 8 January 2006 (PST)
- Should this be done? It makes for an awfully long URL. Should we keep with the full legal name, though? (I think you may be right.) --Echelon 03:23, 11 January 2006 (PST)
