External links added[edit]

User:205.250.123.253 added some links to the "External links section" and, per the instructions in that section, copied those links to this talk page. Below is the user's talk page post:

Dark spot on skin also know as Hyperpigmentation can begin to surface on your skin where acne pimple once resided. These are caused by condition known as "post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation" brought upon by overproduction of melanin (naturally occurring pigment in your body) in a reaction to inflammation[1]. Changes in skin color can result from outside causes. For example, skin diseases such as acne may leave dark spots after the condition clears. Other causes of dark spots are injuries to the skin, including some surgeries. [2]. .

Since those links were used as references, I converted them to web reference format and moved them in to a new "References" section. The new text, however appears to be a copyright violation of the referenced sites. The Rod 18:48, 2 February 2006 (UTC)

My appologies, I'm new to editing. I was under the impression that you could take couple of sentences directly from a site as long as you credit them with a link. Please don't shoot me..lession learned. What is the correct way of direclty quoting from a site?--Funmaan 21:09, 2 February 2006 (UTC)

Sorry if the {{copyvio}} tag seems harsh. I didn't realize the content was intended as a quotation. Quotations are usually reserved for famous quotations about the topic or for quotations from sources considered to be one of the few authorities on the topic. Otherwise, it is better not to quote the source but, instead, to rewrite the content in your own words and to cite the source. Doing so complies with copyright laws. To include a short direct quotation, however, use quotation marks ("like the ones around this phrase"). To include longer quotes (similar in length to the content you included), put them in an intented paragraph (beginning with ":" to indent). The Rod 21:35, 2 February 2006 (UTC)

AH HA....That makes perfect sense. Thank you very much. In the meantime, can i rewrite the description? how in the world do i remove the big copy wright sign that pops up? The preceding unsigned comment was added by Aujlakam (talk • contribs) 2006-02-03 00:10:18 (UTC)

Feel free to rewrite it. I rewrote it myself after discovering the additional copyright violation from here, but it's now a very short article. Also, remember to sign your talk page posts with "~~~~". The Rod (☎ Smith) 05:05, 9 March 2006 (UTC)

Powdered jet injections?[edit]

The only other references I can seem to find on this are just other sites ripping this page word-for-word. How did it end up here and what exactly is it supposed to imply? TheMaskedImprover (talk) 18:50, 22 November 2009 (UTC)
