Sandbox/Natural wonders of India[edit]

Think should be moved, without leaving redirect, to Natural wonders of India/sandbox --Traveler100 (talk) 07:00, 6 January 2019 (UTC)

We don't want it in articlespace of any kind as long as it contains copyvio. Ikan Kekek (talk) 07:03, 6 January 2019 (UTC)
Traveler100 & Ikan Kekek Sandbox/Natural wonders of India is currently being developed for newer content for review. I will copy out origninal and put it on one of my user pages -- Matroc (talk) 07:30, 6 January 2019 (UTC)
We need to delete the Natural wonders of India article to remove the copyvio from its history. Of course we can and should await the results of the Vfd nomination. I should ask, have you done similar things (copypasta/very slight paraphrasing) in any other articles? Ikan Kekek (talk) 07:48, 6 January 2019 (UTC)
Ikan Kekek Ok - finished reworking main section of National wonders of India in a Sandbox. I know I did copy text from existing wikivoyage articles for the (UNESCO World Heritage List (India). To avoid any issues I will go through all the pages I created; copy pages to sandboxes etc., comment out all text in the pages and redo entries (readd them) one at time to insure we won't have any issues just to make sure. -- Matroc (talk) 09:03, 6 January 2019 (UTC)
Text from other Wikivoyage articles is not a copyright problem, I think, though I imagine there could be some kind of Google penalty for lack of originality (but I'm not sure that obtains within sites). Ikan Kekek (talk) 09:07, 6 January 2019 (UTC)
Actually, I misspoke (mistyped): Yes, unless the source article is mentioned, it's a problem, because all the people in the source article's history should be credited with their work. However, I don't think it would be an issue at all if you simply mentioned on the talk pages of the relevant articles that the include text from x or y Wikivoyage article.

Ikan Kekek Good thought! ... I have started working on those topics I created. Thanks! -- Matroc (talk) 09:53, 6 January 2019 (UTC)
Is it all good and OK now? @Ikan Kekek: are you okay with Matroc's changes? --Comment by Selfie City (talk | contributions) 03:09, 4 February 2019 (UTC)
I'm sorry; I don't have time to look at this now. Ikan Kekek (talk) 03:11, 4 February 2019 (UTC)
That's okay with me. Whenever you can. In the meantime, what should I do with the copy of Natural wonders of India that's currently still showing as a copyvio, as I understand? Should I delete for now? Currently the vfd discussion is still live. --Comment by Selfie City (talk | contributions) 03:16, 4 February 2019 (UTC)
Per policy, it has to be deleted, but Matroc needs to keep a record of who contributed to the article in licit ways, because the cleansed version will presumably include some of their contributions. And we will need to check to make sure the version that's said to be cleansed really is devoid of copyvio. Ikan Kekek (talk) 03:53, 4 February 2019 (UTC)
