Category talk:Based on Wikipedia

How do we work actually on articles in this category? What do we do with all these references-links, wikipedia links that are empty and/or non related to trashwiki, "red" categories, and such? Right now these articles do not impress me since they are such a mess, despite all the good information provided. --Sigurdas 21:01, 15 December 2008 (UTC)

yep - I agree that it is a bit problematic and I also really dislike all those red-links we will never use. We have several options here; what I have been doing so far in our wikis is just re-editing the articles & taking out what is not-relevant (including links) and to also provide the link to the original wikipedia-article --Robino 14:18, 17 December 2008 (UTC)
I also think the best way would be to link to wikipedia and only copy relevant information from articles. if links are not necessary, remove them. wikipedia is a great tool, we should't try to replace it. to only copy articles doesn't make sense as they never would be as actual as their originals. --Kardan 19:29, 17 December 2008 (UTC)
