Good job to all, we've reached the 50 articles (lol?).

If someone had the will to edit those two, it'd be really nice:
http://www.staredit.net/starcraft2/Leaderboard
http://www.staredit.net/starcraft2/Force_effects

We're also still missing a "Jump ability" tutorial.

Notice the "Import + Credit" in the article itself.
I do not have time to import it for now... so anyone who wants to should help out.

But if we import it then we're plagiarizing, better to just rewrite it ourselves or ask the original author if we can use it.

As long as we properly cite our sources, there aren't any problems in regards of the Intellectual Property and Plagiarism. ;o

Incorrect, as we're directly copying it without using it as a quotation of a larger article. If we only used part of it and cited it, then it'd be fine. But as we're using the exact thing, we're plagiarizing.

I believe I am right and you are wrong, but I am no lawyer... so maybe you're right.

The very last point gives you reason. :/

OVERWATCH STATUS GO

I just wanted to also suggest that we go back and find all the articles liking to SC2M and rewriting them so we aren't just ripping them off. I'm all for "See also" links to SC2M, but I don't like seeing articles that are just links. This also goes for the few articles that just link to videos.

I prefer having links to sc2mapster more than having nothing for these core wikis. :/

Right, but our wiki should have articles added for our wiki. If we have a bunch of pages linking to other sites, then that defeats the purpose of what we're trying to accomplish. It would be better to read the pages those articles link to and write our own explanation. And then, we can link to the external pages if need be under a "See also" section.

Please go on. :P
I personally do not have enough motivation for this kind of job. :/

I'll probably end up doing them myself (as well as doing text articles for our video tutorials) when I have time. I'd just really prefer that in the future we don't have articles that are only links to external sources.

I must agree with Dev wholeheartedly.

If I come across a wiki... and it looks promising, if I find one article that is like 'link to this site'... I will start using 'this site' instead - since it obviously has more information than the Wiki. But for the time-being, I guess it is better than nothing.

youarenotworthy -- Does anybody know of a way to reveal just a sliver of the map? Smaller than what a map revealer would reveal? Or is there a way to block the map revealer off at a certain point? I can't use units to achieve what I'm trying to do.

I mean it could still be possible. It would just look garbage. ;)
