Thank you John and Bob! I deleted the memory in question and agree completely with the comments!

Sorry Paul, I've only just seen the comment below. I'd just re-iterate what I have written before and agree with Bob, that Wikipedia articles shouldn't be copied in their entirety. This article also appears to have been copied, and although the copyright states that it can be, it seems better to use it as a source of information and put a link to the entire article for people to find out more information. And again biographies aren't the same as memories.

thanks Bob,

John, do you have additional thoughts?

posted by Paul Lee
Paul/John - I agree. Info should not be copied from WikiPedia, and biography info does not belong in memories. I doubt there are any memories from a Roman Emperor. If I transcribe info from Wikipedia, I include genealogically relevant information and sources only, with at most a VERY brief summary of the person's achievements/significance. The rest should be links to other online information.

Managers... the following message was sent to me as a private message and appears to have merit; I would like to know the consensus about how to approach the recommended changes

I'm wondering if you can edit or remove the information in the Memories section of this profile. It really looks like it belongs in the Biography section rather than being a memory of this person. It also looks like it might contain a number of copies from other sites such as Wikipedia which is an infringement of the copyright held by those sites. Thank you John Atkinson co-leader European Aristocrats project.
