Information.svg Welcome to Wikipedia, and thank you for your contributions. One of the core policies of Wikipedia is that articles should always be written from a neutral point of view. A contribution you made to Grandique Ferry, Nova Scotia appears to carry a non-neutral point of view, and your edit may have been changed or reverted to correct the problem.

Grandique Ferry, Nova Scotia[edit]

Hi Bill, I left you a note on Talk: Grandique Ferry, Nova Scotia. I'm not sure I followed your comment about permission to use the sources. If you're copying text verbatim from a source, it can be a copyright issue unless the information is in the public domain. If you have permission to use the text verbatim from the copyright holder, then there's a special process to follow: Wikipedia:Requesting_copyright_permission#For_text. Then, you'd be granted an ORTS ticket and can post the material verbatim.

All that being said, I'm not sure that applies here because the shipwreck info didn't appear to be a copyright violation that I saw.

I did make some substantial edits to the page, converting your external links into footnotes. You can take a look and see how they work. Happy editing. Toddst1 (talk) 19:25, 15 January 2008 (UTC)
