RGM-59 Taurus[edit]

Copyright-problem.svg

This is an automated message from CorenSearchBot. I have performed a web search with the contents of RGM-59 Taurus, and it appears to include a substantial copy of http://www.designation-systems.net/dusrm/m-59.html. For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted text or images borrowed from other web sites or printed material; such additions will be deleted. You may use external websites as a source of information, but not as a source of sentences. See our copyright policy for further details.

This message was placed automatically, and it is possible that the bot is confused and found similarity where none actually exists. If that is the case, you can remove the tag from the article and it would be appreciated if you could drop a note on the maintainer's talk page. CorenSearchBot (talk) 20:39, 24 November 2009 (UTC)

Hi. I appreciate that you made some efforts to paraphrase the text on RGM-59 Taurus so it would not be a copyright infringement. Unfortunately, adding synonyms and minor alterations in the sentences is still a plagiarism issue. As it is currently written, most of the text will need to be deleted as a copyright violation. You are welcome to rewrite the text using original language. The page on WP:Close paraphrasing can provide you with some explanations and help. In the long run, it is always better to simply write the text from scratch using your own words. If you have any questions, feel free to ask. Regards. Theleftorium 21:01, 24 November 2009 (UTC)

Instructions for changing an article name[edit]

  1. People asked for a list of the articles that had been moved, as as the guy who made the moves failed to do it, I made it at Wikipedia_talk:WikiProject Ships#List of ship class articles moved by User:Kwamikagami
  2. Select an article from the list whose name you object to. For example Trafalgar-class submarine. Go to the article in question.
  3. When I view the article on Trafalgar-class submarine there are six tabs at the top. The fifth tab is marked move. Click on move.
  4. This produces the move page. Copy the article name into the box marked "To new title:", and edit it - for example to: Trafalgar class submarine
  5. Put the reason for the move in the box marked "Reason". I would guess that the reason would be: Revert controversial move made without consensus
  6. The box marked "Move associated talk page" should be ticked. On my computer the default is ticked.
  7. The box marked "Watch source page and target page" can be ticked or not ticked. On my computer the default is ticked.
  8. Press the button marked move page.

If you do not have the move tab at the top of the page, it either means that you are not logged in, or that you have different preference settings than me.--Toddy1 (talk) 20:25, 22 April 2011 (UTC)
