Article Contributions Advice

Koosha March 19, 2013 User blog:Koosha

Hi all,

I kinda need some opinions and suggestions. I'm having mixed feelings about this recently.

Usually, when you contribute to wikis for TV series or entertainment, e.g anime, manga,etc.; especially the character articles. Do you find it hard to be careful about over-exposing info that should be self-explored by readers themselves? I'm talking about what would possibly be contributed into articles, for e.g the character article; where parts of the contribution would touch on some plot and how the character interacts with it. But on the other hand, if we leave out how the interaction of the character and its plot, it will be difficult to explain without having to 'spoil' things. ^^"

In some cases, episode summaries would be overly elaborated; in some cases the summary could hit a very, very long write-up~which then calls to mind, the possibility of over-exposing the episode, in this case, I don't think it would be considered Fair Use or being fair to content creators any longer right? It's like making that wiki to become a host for full episodes in text form; which really is an alternative for watching an episode for a series. And if things like this continue for other media like manga, anime, tv series, etc. Would that be an additional threat to the sales of those products; as well as the livelihood of content creators in long term (putting into consideration of those free anime + manga sites out there)? 

Well, I hope to be able to find an answer to this. Anyone else wants to share their way of writing an article or suggestions?

Thx for sharing in advance! And have a great week! =)
