Scum: The Masquerade[edit]

This is an automated message from MadmanBot. I have performed a web search with the contents of Scum: The Masquerade, and it appears to include material copied directly from

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. The article will be reviewed to determine if there are any copyright issues.

If substantial content is duplicated and it is not public domain or available under a compatible license, it will be deleted. For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted text or images borrowed from other web sites or printed material. You may use such publications as a source of information, but not as a source of sentences. See our copyright policy for further details.

Speedy deletion nomination of Scum: The Masquerade[edit]

Hello Irc.limerick,

I wanted to let you know that I just tagged Scum: The Masquerade for deletion, because it seems to be copied from another source.

If you feel that the article shouldn't be deleted and want more time to rewrite it in your own words, you can contest this deletion, but please don't remove the speedy deletion tag from the top.

You can leave a note on my talk page if you have questions. Thanks, Dewritech (talk) 11:15, 14 March 2013 (UTC)

You wrote on the talk page that this "is licensed under a compatible license, in fact, licensed under Wikipedia's own licensing terms", but nowhere on the page you linked to, or on any of the general pages of, is there a formal copyright release such as the "Text is available under the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike License" at the bottom of every Wikipedia page. In the absence of an explicit copyright release, we have to treat this as copyrighted - see WP:Copy-paste.

In fact, even if the copyright issue were resolved, this material would not be suitable for Wikipedia - see WP:NOTGUIDE.
