I'd like to preface this by saying that there's no reason this should even be a thing. The fact that this has already been caught TWICE is extremely disappointing to me, and the fact that I have to make a thread about it is even more disappointing.
We've amassed a gigantic cache of information on-site for Generation 4 over the past couple years, and most or all of it is extremely well-written. Because of this, SOME users have decided that it's a good idea to simply lift prose from these articles or analyses word for word instead of writing their own. This first happened in a series of LC Analyses, but has now been done in a large-scale guide which actually went on-site before it was noticed. (It has subsequently been taken down.)
I shouldn't have to say why this is so ridiculously unacceptable. We give privileges like Pre-Contributor and Contributor, as well as just being well-known for quality analyses on the forum. It's because of this that the theft of prose from analyses is such a problem. I personally find it extremely important that people not receive credit for lifting other people's work from OUR OWN SITE, and this goes double for articles, since they're weighted more when the time comes for rewards and the like.
I was lenient the first time this happened, but I'm done being lenient. If I have to hear from one more person that they noticed a "suspicious similarity" that turned out to be prose lifted directly from our own fourth generation pages, heads will roll.
