It means that large portions of it, if not the whole thing, are straight from the All Music Guide website.


From the AMG website:

    • While just a sophomore at the State University of New York (studying orchestra and later studio composition), Imani Coppola gained a record contract for her surrealistic, sample-laden pop vision of hip-hop, linked to Digable Planets as well as Neneh Cherry. While growing up, her entire family was musical, and Coppola began playing violin at the age of six. She began writing songs and practiced her vocals (although her recording career has featured her rapping more than singing). Her debut album, Chupacabra, featured the MTV hit "Legend of a Cowgirl."

From the Imani Coppola Wiki page:

Whoever pasted this is a total plagarist.

Yes, I see... you are correct. This has been Imani's official bio blurb, and it is indeed written by John Bush, from the All Music Guide. Whoever first set up this article apparently copied it. This entire paragraph is copied from AMG, but that's not to say the entire article is. That's what I thought you were saying. I came along and corrected incorrect information about Imani, and I believe most of the recent anonymous contributions to this (all from the same IP) are from Imani herself, as I told her about the article and what I had done to it. Only she would know how much money she made on a project... By the way, I run her web site. DavidRavenMoon 14:53, 23 August 2006 (UTC)

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help.

Steam Loco[edit]

The change at https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Steam_locomotive&curid=196788&diff=619964349&oldid=619561313 didn't improve it, laid it out a little bit better, maybe uncluttered, but now it's also unnecessarily longer. ? --Dave Rave (talk) 00:23, 6 August 2014 (UTC)
