For some background, a lot of information added to the Huntik Wiki during 2009 was plagiarized (copied verbatim) from Huntik.com. This situation poses some problems as well as some opportunities.
In an effort to uphold the quality (and legality) of our articles, the Huntik Wiki must require that all plagiarized sections be re-written. For the purpose of definition, "rewritten" does NOT simply mean taking words and looking them up in a thesaurus. The whole plagiarized section must be rewritten from scratch. Of note, many of the final copies of Titan design history likely only need to be a single paragraph and would not need to be as long as the current sections.
However, having the actual information also grants the opportunity to expand the Huntik Wiki's archive of the original English Huntik.com website, the content of which is no longer available. I must emphasize that this archive is presented here purely for archival and reference purposes and helps prevent plagiarism on actual articles.
So, the question of all questions: What all would be involved? Probably the easiest may would be tackling it article by article by first copying the Design History information onto the Huntik.com/Secret Files page in the format of the Riderless Chariot and then rewriting the section on the Titan's article. If this is done by multiple users, it will make this project be easier (and hopefully allow me to tie up a few loose ends on an older project here). I've gone through content on the Huntik Wiki to find articles that include Design History sections. All of these were originally copied from Huntik.com. I've noted how many sections are involved as well.
Indeed. It's not too good on copyright / plagiarism, but it does make for easier references. I do recall something for Baselaird, but I'm not sure on the others.
And I know we had some concept art for Fire Kappa somewhere… I'm just hoping that wasn't one of the files that were removed by Wikia since a lot of the original files had no form of licensing info. I've tried to do a Google search but haven't had much luck yet.
I'm currently finding a few links to the old Huntik.com site that may have been the source of some of the info on the pages. The problem is that even the Wayback Machine doesn't work without an old Huntik.com account. I don't suppose anyone had one or otherwise has info from these pages?
