Hm! I'd say you are right about that. It's quite redundant. I shall remove that at once! --"You know why he's here? Why he's investigating the broken rules? He's not paid or anything. He likes it. He gets off on it" (talk) 13:54, January 15, 2016 (UTC)
- Corrected it, good eye. Keep up the good work. EmpyrealInvective (talk) 00:12, January 16, 2016 (UTC)

I suck at introductions by the way ;-; You can obviously tell :p
Okie Imma leave you alone now...Ta ta! :p
No problem, I researched it too. I even came across a few people who were using my stories without citing them so that's a plus.
Yeah, we kind of assumed he was trolling with the lack of evidence and his refusal to show proof of any kind. It is possible he had his stories removed (as in Little Pink Backpack) for copyright claims, but it seems incredibly unlikely that all traces of him would be removed (like user pages and messages on Reddit, Wattlpad, etc.). We decided to leave it be a while ago, but I do find it necessary to defend claims of plagiarism as it is a serious offense and can ruin someone's reputation.
As someone who's got a few books waiting in the dark pits of a publishers' submission box for review, it is important to make sure everything is on the up-and-up. Thanks for the research, I'm just going to chalk it up to someone trying to get my goat after this blog came up. (Likely ruffling the banned person's feathers or someone in the past who's been banned or had their stories deleted.) EmpyrealInvective (talk) 05:15, February 12, 2016 (UTC)
- Yup, I think he was hoping to bluff me into making me delete my stories ("All I ask is that you please remove it from CP Wikia."), which would have made me look like I had in fact copied him, when he really should have been attacking my stories on the grounds of quality standards. (Looks like they were typed out by a dyslexic chimpanzee who was intoxicated at the time.) Jokes aside, he's likely grasping at straws in retribution for a previous justified banning and will magically find some 'evidence' in a few days or so to continue wasting our time.

Re: Public Domain
As long as it's within public domain (I believe it's 75 years after the author's death and the license hasn't been re-upped) and it's in the realm of horror literature, it can be uploaded to the site. That being said, make sure you cite the original author and I would also read over the story and decide whether or not it's noteworthy or interesting enough to be added to the site. There is a lot of horror literature from the past that could be added here that technically fit the criterion, but we do have to cherry-pick a bit so the site isn't a bunch of older stories that might fail to hold readers' attentions.

Hey there, I noticed you recently marked a page for deletion. I just wanted to let you know that when you mark a page for deletion/review, it's intended that you remove all other categories on that page, so that the only category left is either "Delete Now" or "Marked for Review". You can remove a category by clicking the garbage can icon to the right when highlighting a category in the "Categories" section when editing a page. And also thank you for trying to improve the overall quality of the wiki; deleting old, lower quality stories certainly helps with that. Anyways, just wanted to let you know that, not a big deal. Thanks.
Marking for review out of nowhere
Why did you suddenly decide to mark for review my original story (one that has been here for around 3 years now)? As for "context", are you acquainted with the term "minifiction" as a literary form?
