A summary of some important site policies and guidelinesEdit

Oh, one other thing:
I noticed that your draft copied from one of the sources you cited. Never copy text, always summarize and paraphrase, even if you wrote the original text. The reason is that while you aren't necessarily violating copyright, you are causing anyone else who edits the page to violate copyright. Ian.thomson (talk) 02:32, 3 January 2020 (UTC)
The exception to that is if the original includes a statement releasing it under a compatible license, such as CC-BY-SA 3.0. However, such a release allows anyone in the world to use the text for any purpose at all, including commercial purposes, and including creating modified versions and distributing them, all with no obligation to pay any fees or royalties, but merely to provide attribution to the original source. Even then, copied content is discouraged, because it is rarely suitable without significant editing. DES (talk)DESiegel Contribs 03:52, 3 January 2020 (UTC)
Oh and, short quotations, properly attributed and cited, are allowed. See WP:QUOTE. DES (talk)DESiegel Contribs 03:52, 3 January 2020 (UTC)
