Finals week is such a drag. And my school had two. And then I had a major project to do. I was away from the internet for almost two weeks, can you believe that? Oh! The withdrawal! The pain of being cut off from the rest of the world! The heartbreak of not being able to instantly request information!
And the heartbreak of realizing I had abandoned my Wiki. -bows- I'm so sorry, guys. I didn't forget you. Well, maybe I did. But I remembered you again, so it's all okay, right?
Maybe not. While I was gone, I found this message on Arthur Hellsing's page, with almost all of his other biographical text deleted:

I knew about Call to Arms, one of the best Hellsing fansites ever. I admired them. They were like a Wiki, only...not. One of the primary differences between a wiki and CTA is that, well, they happen to be a fansite with a crapload of info, proving that they are awesome. They also happen to have money, which explains the epic web design.
They also have a copyright, apparently.
Unlike Wikia, which has a GNU Free Documented License (which basically is no copyright at all, you can take the info and do whatever with it without accrediting it to anyone) CTA does have a copyright: which means you can't copy info from them without asking first.
I don't think I nor other users were very aware about the copyright rules, so I'd like to take this chance to apologize to all the admins at Call to Arms: Gomen! We're sorry! We didn't mean it! We completely did not mean to infringe upon your legal rights and I, as an admin, will do my best to ensure that it doesn't happen again.
So I guess I've gotta put a notice up on the Main Page. Which would probably require formatting. -nervous glance- Um, I'll get right back to you on that...
