Redundant text[edit]

The two sections about copyright are redundant:

  • "Your article will be rejected if... uses copyrighted material copy-pasted from a source."
  • "Do not copy-paste material from sources. This constitutes copyright infringement, and is not allowed."

How about: "Your article will be rejected if the topic is not notable, is referenced improperly, or it uses copyrighted material copied from another source." and we delete the second redundant part about copyright. Note that I also fixed the grammar and changed "copy-pasted" to "copied" since "copied" is more easily understood and it's still a copyvio even if they copy it by manual transcription rather than pasting. Also, can we please, please try to not expand the instructions further. Every system we build for guiding people through article creation seems to inevitably evolve into a wall of text that no one reads. Kaldari (talk) 04:16, 15 July 2019 (UTC)

Template-protected edit request on 26 November 2019[edit]

Protected pages should never be inaccessible from view of anyone, since the problem is in allowing unrestricted access to editing capabilities, but those protected pages could contain content that is unfounded, biased, or logically convoluted to the content displayed in any other page under the domain of the rule. That rule goes against what Wikipedia is, which is a site where incorrect information can be refined by anyone who has the ability to refine it, however editing restrictions should at least be viewable to those who use Wikipedia.

 Not done: it's not clear what changes you want to be made. Please mention the specific changes in a "change X to Y" format and provide a reliable source if appropriate. DannyS712 (talk) 12:58, 26 November 2019 (UTC)
