=====================================================

Greetings Aschlafly,

I'm not sure this is where you expect me to "explain myself"...but here goes....

I must admit posting any information on Conservapetia is perhaps more than I know how to do. I was excited in learning of Conservapedia, but shocked at the lack of information on the site. So, as a life long radio broadcasters of legendary status I first began by posting some information on myself. Only to find it has not been accepted.

As the creator and owner of the Hit Parade Hall of Fame, I assumed adding bio's on the artists that I wrote myself and use on that site, would be helpful to Conservapedia visitors since the information on most all of the nominees and inductees of the Hit Parade Hall of Fame are not posted here.

I'm wrong again, since you now inform me of my last chance to explain myself before I'm blocked.

Look, I'm trying to be of help. If you don't what to take advantage of my vast knowledge and personal experiences with many, many celebrities in both radio and recorded music. Then so be it. Block me if you want. If you instead understand that I personally have written everything I have posted here and decide that it is of value to visitors to this site, then let me know.

Thank you for the clarification. Your pages are being restored. DanH 23:49, 28 December 2007 (EST)
Thanks for explaining. Of course your own work is welcome here, and you might understand our policy against copying others' work. Sorry for the misunderstanding.--Aschlafly 00:14, 29 December 2007 (EST)
Please don't take offense for being questioned. In a perfect world it wouldn't happen, but most people copying information and not replying aren't doing it to help our site, but to hinder our efforts. I hope you understand it's not personal and your positive contributions are always welcome. Learn together 05:09, 29 December 2007 (EST)
In order to avoid this sort of issue (which could arise again in the future if someone hasn't seen this conversation yet realises that your articles are copied from elsewhere), you need to put a notice on the talk page of such articles. I created the {{Copied from}} template for this just recently. Just put {{Copied from|site=Hitparadehalloffame.org|user=~~~~|site user=John Rook}} on the talk page of each article. (At least that's what I think you should put, from reading your post above.) That template was designed with other Wikis in mind (hence the name you use on the other site). We can modify it if necessary. I hope that's all clear; feel free to ask for clarification if not.
And of course even though you've copied your own work here, others are free to add to it, amend it, etc., just like any other article here.
