  • Hey, I saw your post on Memory Delta and it looks like some of your other work might being used on there too? Was Frank Cole your character? There is an article there (Frank Cole article) and there may be others too. Dragonboy546 has blocked me for no good reason except for responding to your post on there, so good luck. Hope you are well! --103.242.26.244 20:48, April 10, 2018 (UTC)

    • Sorry, that was me. Somehow I got signed out. --usscantabrian (talk) 20:49, April 10, 2018 (UTC)

    • A couple of my characters are over there at the moment. I'll try to get them removed as well.

    • Dragonboy546 appears to be a serial offender with taking and using characters, ships, stories, et cetera from other series. He hasn't attempted to use any of my things -- mainly because I banned him from my wiki early on, I think, and kept telling him "no" -- but it looks like he's taken things from scripts from Star Trek: Enterprise, Star Trek Continues, Star Trek: Phase II, Star Trek: Hidden Frontier, Star Trek: Pendragon, and several other series too. I don't know what can be done to get it to stop.

      There's been a huge discussion on both Fan Film Factor and Hidden Frontier groups with him about this issue, and I believe he's been reported too. I've tried every approach with him and he's just not getting it.

      Good luck and I hope it all works out for you.

    • I know all about him. When he first "contributed" to STEU I was involved in tagging and re-tagging his articles as he would just remove the tags without dealing with what they addressed. Then my fanfic stuff started to appear in his articles, so I'm fairly convinced as to why he does it.

      As crazy as it sounds if he would just contact me first and ask about using things from my fanfic I wouldn't immediately say 'no', not even now. I wouldn't be cool with him taking my main characters and making them his main characters as he has done, but outside that I'm not all that fussy.

    • Okay, this doesn’t come as a surpise to me as I went on there and tagged the articles you mentioned in your post for deletion. He took the deletion tags off.

      You have every right to do whatever you’d like with your content, obviously, but permission / consent is a really important thing, as we both know.

      I have reported this to Wikia / Fandom as a wider issue, so we’ll see what they do about it, I guess.

    • How did you report him? Through Special:Contacts or over on Community Central?

    • I tried via Community Central although because I don't hold copyright on any of the stuff (it's other authors' things) I can't get very far. My next step is to contact the staff directly, which is what I was instructed to do.

    • Just to let you know (to carry on this conversation) that Dragonboy546 has blocked you for 1 year from Memory Delta. I've reported this to USS HERO as requested, and also Dragonboy546 reverting the article to use your material again. We'll see what happens there.

    • Disregard that. He's now unblocked you.

    • So he blocked me after someone else reverted his edit? It makes about as much sense as anything else he does.

    • I agree. I feel like every time I get a message from that wiki, it’s like entering Wonderland...
