you should be somewhat great full. They found your fanon so good, good enough that they wanted to make their own for halo. That shows You know what your doing. They are learning still. --Kebath 'Holoree 00:43, 2 November 2007 (UTC)
True, BUT they didn't take permission, nor told me it was good, OR ANY FORSAKEN CREDIT. I suggest, we delete the article, and temporairily ban him.--Bugger| Bug Me| My Bugging devices| Bugged 00:52, 2 November 2007 (UTC)
Maybe delete the article, but ban? That's a little too extreme.

I say that we tell Aiden Smith that he must say that he got the idea from O'malley's fan fic or his article will be deleted. We should not ban him, because we only ban vandals, people who make personal attacks, or people that break laws in the US (Even though I live outside of the US on this site I must follow its laws).
Not only did he take the title, but the idea. Fighting in Osgiliath and minas Tirith in 1st person, only Fighting in Reach and 04 in 1st person.--Bugger| Bug Me| My Bugging devices| Bugged 02:12, 2 November 2007 (UTC)
Well he does make a point, imagine you make a wonderful piece of art called The white harbor and its about a harbor and then someone comes along takes your painting and colors everything that is white grey, and names it The grey harbor
Oh they're taking more than that! The idea of a geniric warriors thoughts in two battles that link.
They should have asked for permission first, that's just down right rude. Credit should have been given too, if permission to use the article as a base for another article was approved. Obviously the permission is most important, however the fact that they did neither is just... But never mind, at least it's been taken care of now.
Hey, just a thought on the comments above though, If the original article creator would have to ask for credit to be stated on what was based on his own article though... then that really is quite sad, that the creator them self has to go to the bother of asking - for lack of a better phrase - the "article theif" to have the credit they're entitled to. -TheLostJedi 08:27, 02 November 2007 (UTC)
I'm with O'Malley on this. Yes, O'Malley has been known to yell at people for little reason, but this is one of the instances where he is not at fault! Defend the man! No one else's property should be stolen from the owner! -- Lordofmonsterisland "Roar to me" 19:09, 2 November 2007 (UTC)
Thank you for bringing this to my attention.
Ok, there is one way to settle this. For the simpleminded dolt to give up the article, and you to delete it. In short, I win. That's the only door, so either walk it, or just stay in the hallway forever.--Bugger| Bug Me| My Bugging devices| Bugged 22:43, 2 November 2007 (UTC)
Mmhmm. We should all listen to RR with this one. How about next time, instead of creating a forum for it, we talk to a user who may or may not have stolen an idea or name?
Ahhh, but the hallway actually has two doors at the end! A peaceful ending, now if we walk through "Peaceful" we will not have a Forum full of caps and curses -- The State(Our Decrees and Law)(The State Alchemists we've enlisted) 23:43, 2 November 2007 (UTC)
*sighs* Did you guys pay any attention to what RR said? We should be finding a comprimise between O'malley and AS. If we keep going down the path we are right now, we will not be able to get anything done on this site.
Then try his talk page. Everyone deserves an equal and fair chance.
I did. But im telling you, he is not going to respond.
He responed, he said he would give it up. But he gave me a very very rude attitude. Once again I stand triumphant.
Sounds like we should be mad, with admins too lazy to take action, waiting for users to deal with something which they can't do anything about. Bottom line, this should have been dealt with ages ago. -TheLostJedi 01:34, 04 November 2007
He's got a point. Dictators!
- In the event that a compromise can't be personally reached between O'Malley and AS, thus I respectfully ask that AS change the contents of his work to a fair amount as to not parallel O'Malley's in order to avoid any future conflict. While I think this is regrettable, I think it would be an infringement of O'Malley's intellectual ideas. Cheers, RelentlessRecusant 'o the Halopedia Team TALK • MESSAGE 01:54, 4 November 2007 (UTC)
He said "I have read what RR has said and i am giving KH the Article and just going to write a new story or continue with my other story", HARDLY rude. And what's with the "Dictators!", comment? Between this and the "Omg civl war" thread, it seems to me like your just trying to cause trouble =/ . User:Tesfan 03:15, 4 November 2007 (UTC)
So...Aiden is the only person who gets punished? Even thought O Malley exploded at him and called him various things? Aiden is the only one who gets punished? -- The State(Our Decrees and Law)(The State Alchemists we've enlisted) 03:32, 4 November 2007 (UTC)
He insulted me on my talk page, ALOT.
Upon some of Rotaretilbo's investigations; this is my conclusion. Lieutenant Smith was completely unaware of O'Malley's article on Halo Fan Fiction, and thus had come up with a parallel idea on his own. The fact that Dragonclaws and I were not aware of this at the time made us to mistakenly believe that Smith was plagarizing O'Malley when in fact Smith was not.
Thus, I believe that it is unnecessary that 'control' of Smith's article be ceded to anyone else and that Smith should have full intellectual ownership and editing rights over his own article.
Comments from Rotaretilbo and Dragonclaws would be appreciated.
