+:SUB:Descriptions From External Sources
- <i>TODO: Something about quoting sources in descriptions here</i>
+ It is possible to add a description or notes to visual novel, producer and release entries
+ in the database. While original descriptions are preferred, using descriptions from external
+ resources is allowed, provided the source is properly credited. The preferred form to credit
+ external resources is by adding the following template to the bottom of the description:<br />
+ [From [url=<b>URL</b>]<b>title or author</b>[/url]]<br />
+ This would result in, for example, '[From <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/Wiki/Ever17">Wikipedia</a>]'
+ for descriptions taken from Wikipedia. If the description is not literally taken from the
+ source but has some modifications, the 'From' should be replaced with something similar,
+ indicating that it's modified, e.g. 'Edited from', 'Based on'.<br />
+ As it is not allowed to provide links to websites providing or promoting illigal downloads,
+ the URL part should be left out for such descriptions.
