Talk:Seven-year old Tennessee boy chased by police

Active discussions

by reverting, which was NOT copy vio, it makes it not a news story. there is NO meaning to what the previous "article" said. I dispute your claim. Dragonfire1024

I read what was there, and I read the source cited as copyvio. There were significant sections which matched word-for-word.
That, incidentally, isn't passing comment on the quality of what is there now, you've cleaned up a lot after this contributor and their only response has been to demand you do more. --Brian McNeil / talk 22:19, 11 January 2006 (UTC)

Actually there was a user that sited it as copy vio which it was not. Copy vio is if someone is trying to take claim to the story personally. That was not the case. DragonFire1024

Unless you are claiming that the text you posted was either a) written by you or b) gathered from a public domain source or one with a compatible license, then it was indeed copyvio. I agree that the previous version is fairly unreadable. I'm at work, I don't have time to clean it up myself. -- Phyzome is Tim McCormack 22:23, 11 January 2006 (UTC)

Is this re-write any better now? DragonFire1024 6:36 PM (EST)


Do people support a rename to "7 year old chased by Tennessee police", or does anyone prefer "7 year old Tennessee boy chased by police"? Nyarlathotep 15:16, 12 January 2006 (UTC)

I'd prefer the latter. The former adds some confusion as to where the boy is from, as in "Arkansas boy chased by Tennessee police", whereas the latter lets the reader assume the police are from the same area. On another note, this title is a little misleading. Wasn't it more of a car chase? The current title makes it sound like a chase on foot. -- Phyzome is Tim McCormack 15:19, 12 January 2006 (UTC)
Yes, but the first sounded better, IMHO.. whatever. Nyarlathotep 17:24, 12 January 2006 (UTC)

I would like to say i started it and i hope you thank me someday!
