Copied text in article[edit]

I saw notice that there is copied text in this article, copied from 1 or 2 websites that may be State of Georgia sites. State government sites, unlike Federal ones, are usually NOT public domain, so that may imply there is copyright violation on top of plagiarism. I just added two new sources to the article, which could be used to develop the article better now. These are good sources, the NHL website and especially the NRHP text document. Hope this helps. doncram (talk) 00:49, 20 February 2008 (UTC)

The section "Tomb raiders" seems too similar to this. (It was even more similar before I moved the link to External Links.) Other parts (especially the facilities and activities) seems like it may be copied from this. Bubba73 (talk), 15:46, 20 February 2008 (UTC)

Unilateral undiscussed page move[edit]

Why was this page just moved[1]? And with no discussion here about the reasons for it? I would support a move back to its official name immediately, until a consensus and a rational for its movement can be made here. Heiro 02:18, 9 September 2011 (UTC)

Hello. I moved it back to its original name for two reasons. Mostly because the article is primarily about the ancient mound complex itself, not the state park that was created to protect most of it (the entire complex is not contained within the park). Secondly because the editor who originally moved it just said "thats the name", but "Kolomoki Mounds Historic Park" does not appear to be the correct name. Although that does appear in a source, "Kolomoki Mounds State Historic Park" appears to be more correct. I've also seen "Kolomoki Mounds State Park" and "Kolomoki Indian Mounds State Historic Park". I hope that explains it. Station1 (talk) 02:34, 9 September 2011 (UTC)
P.S. The NPS also calls the complex simply Kolomoki Mounds,[2] as does the New Georgia Encyclopedia. Station1 (talk) 02:50, 9 September 2011 (UTC)
