I believe it would help me in my quest to create wrestling and baseball articles to have the Importer tool. I'm not much for words but I hope you'll trust me with the Importer tool.

Optional questions by: fr33kman
What does importer mean? What does it allow you to do and not do, and what dangers are there in its usage? fr33kman 06:41, 18 February 2010 (UTC)
A: Import in Wikimedia's case allows a importer to import pages from another Wikimedia wiki where it is enabled. You can import pages to start a new article or you can import revisions to that wikis existing article. It can't import revisions that conflict with a revision that already exists with the same timestamp down to the second. And if I'm correct there's possible a issue of contributing revisions to the wrong editor cause one user may not be the some user on the wiki you import to.--   CR90  23:20, 18 February 2010 (UTC)

Optional questions by User:Kansan
Would you make sure that you simplified any articles that you imported instead of just leaving them as is? Kansan (talk) 03:34, 19 February 2010 (UTC)
A: I don't mean to sound arrogant but of course I would, I would be stupid not to simplify them cause then they would be deleted.--   CR90  03:42, 19 February 2010 (UTC)

  3. whynot as I said on Razor's request, I'd rather them import and simplify then copy/paste. As long as they are careful (be very very careful of including templates, i.e DONT) then I'm fine. James (T C) 01:56, 19 February 2010 (UTC)

  • Just a little side note, my rationale might have been longer but I'm fighting a cold right now and not much into really writing from the head. Hopefully tomorrow I can give you more of a rationale.--   CR90  06:37, 18 February 2010 (UTC)
