    You probably noticed I flagged a ton of articles as plagiarism yesterday/this morning. The majority of AthlonX2s stuff was just copy pasted from wikipedia. I don't really want to be a party pooper or anything...

    Don't know what procedure you want to follow on that W1z; whether to leave them intact for now with disputed marker, or just delete the contents. I've started rewriting a few of them (eVGA & Seagate), but there are still tons that are blatant copies.

    Oh, and I want to thank DanTheBanjoman for replying to my discussions and answering my questions! I really appreciate it, makes this feel like a community.

    So any points we earn today still counts toward this month's competition or next? And who's the winner :p?

    Yeah, being back in school has pretty much consumed all my spare time since last week.

    If I'm still in the running, I'll want to donate my winnings (though I'm not sure to whom yet), since I don't have a paypal account and don't really want one :)

    You're always welcome to write in the wiki, competition or not.


    And thank you mr W1zzard, it'll go towards my Xeon fundings :p

    Or perhaps I'll blow it on a whore...

    Bank transfer can be done as well. Will just take a bit longer to transfer. If is too lazy that I could forward it via Paypal to my bank to your bank, omg that's complicated but works.
    Or if you insist on donating, I'd say think of something TPU related to spend it on.

    considering the number of updates this sounds just fair to me .. not many people are participating in this

    Maybe starting a new thread would attract more attention to the new contest. I'm not sure people are aware that this contest is a reoccuring event. And how do you report spam on the wiki?
