Greetings. After much consideration and still no response on my mail to Blizzard, I decided that I didn't want the work spent on the article to go unjustified. Therefore as a last resort I'm putting up the earlier posted content. Letting the content stay in the unedited form, enabling users and administrators to do all adjustments and modifications they find useful on the article. Good luck! Vermin 12:20, 13 June 2009 (UTC)


Because the contributor's effort to obtain permission from the copyright holder is a tacit acknowledgement that the article exceeds the bounds of fair use, and because that effort was unsuccessful, I have therefore tagged the article as a copyvio. ~ Ningauble 12:22, 13 June 2009 (UTC)

I don't wish to fight neither the administrators nor the rule system here at Wikiquote. But its still holds that 85-90% of the Quotes used in the article is already provided from the wiki-based project, Wikia. What is your responds to that? Vermin 20:05, 13 June 2009 (UTC)

Short answer: This is not Wikia.
Long answer: Although Wikia, Inc. uses WikiMedia software, it is not run by the Mediawiki Foundation. The two organizations have different policies.

Hm. It sounds logical that the wiki-based organizations uses different policies a.k.a regulation system. But I find it awkward that one of the wiki-based sites allows more "copyrighted" material to be displayed then others. Even if Blizzard under the circumstances has made a sort of arrangement with Wikia, it still sounds weird to me that so a high amount of quoted material is allowed and visible on Wikia but not on Wikiqutote.
