Anglo-Norman Albina story[edit]

The "Anglo-Norman Albina story" section looks quite plagiarized from my edit in Albion. Arent you supposed to attribute this sort of thing to the source wiki article? Anyway I dont think it is a good idea having fully elaborate content on the same material in two places like this. --Kiyoweap (talk) 06:45, 15 July 2016 (UTC)

Nothing should be sourced to another Wikipedia article - see Wikipedia:Wikipedia is not a reliable source. It should be cited to reliable secondary sources. If it is relevant to include the story in two places, there is no reason not to do so - although usually you would find one article with all the detail, and the other with a summary that is linked to the article section with the main detail.

@Simon Burchell:, perhaps I didnt make it clear enough, but I didnt mean an attribution should be made to me within the article itself. I meant that attribution should be made to the "source wiki article" in the edit summary. It falls under the guideline WP:COPYWITHIN, which you should familiarize yourself with if you're thinking it's okay to casually engage in copy and paste jobs from one wikiarticle to another. --Kiyoweap (talk) 17:33, 12 August 2016 (UTC)
