Copy and pastes off Wikipedia

9 posts in this topic

Do you think we should do it for some pages?

Personally, I think if we are going to copy and paste then it should be from other Rangers sites so it's written from a Rangers perspective, if you get what I mean.

Don't like copying straight off it, only the Rangers related bits I sometimes take. Think it looks stupid on Rangers Pedia when it says "Bobby Brown was a Scottish footballer who played for Rangers". That's what the wiki articles start like.

I don't know which pages are from Wiki but I just went on Scot Symon's and William Wilton's page and you can tell they are from there because it says: (born Largs, Ayrshire, 9 June 1865; died 2 May 1920). :BELM:

I suppose we had to get something up when we first started. All the copy and pastes off Wiki will change once RP gets more built up. :)

Forgot to say, if you can find articles about players from other sources such as The Herald, The Times etc... then that's better than Wiki because it gives you an insight instead of basic info. :)
