Any of thou who might be so inclined to help may do so. If there is another wiki on Elftown about this topic, please let me know. Ophiodus help me.
2006-12-10 [Amanda Bastian]: I sure don't think there's another wiki like this...I've never run accrossed any and I'm everywhere for dragon wikis
2006-12-10 [xido]: It has to do with referencing and bibliographies of writing/media, and not just with dragons, but it is also important to making sure that Elftowners stay professional about the stuff they post around the town, and keep from plagiarising.
I have a lot of work cut out for me... XP
2006-12-10 [Amanda Bastian]: Wow O.O
2006-12-10 [xido]: You said it.
2006-12-10 [Amanda Bastian]: That's too much for one person...WAY too much
2006-12-11 [xido]: No way... You don't know how I write when I get going on here.
2006-12-11 [Amanda Bastian]: You type fast?
2006-12-11 [xido]: Not really too fast, but when I get going on a project, I typically get it done quickly.
2006-12-11 [xido]: Needed:
Quotations, Paraphrasing, and avoiding plagiarism tips
add 'and Public Emotions'

Please see that page. I will be diving into that soon enough. If you want to focus on web art material, focus on that page instead. I will make sure you get credit if you help out on this, m'lady.

2008-09-10 [xido]: APA Formatting is the referencing layout used by the APA, as well as some papers and in college, depending on the school and/or professor.
It is a simple system for documenting where you find information that you use. I made a simplified version here, and you can use it for most any form of media/writing used in your own papers. It makes sure that you're not cheating by saying where you read what you are writing about.
It is pretty much: Name (Last Name, and First & Middle Initials), (Date). Title. From Source (Details if in a magazine, publishing series, etc. - Issue, Volume, Page Numbers, etc.). (If online:) Retrieved on Date, from http://www.sit
Inside your writing, when you are using material that is not yours, right after it write in (Author, Date) like it is in your reference's beginning portion. See the examples I used here in the links, and do a Google search for APA Formatting if needed. There is a lot of information out there for it.
