This seems to be very close to the written text in the CS. There are minor changes but whole sentences and phrases are lifted wholecloth from the source material. I will go through and change it today, but in general this is too close to the source material to not count as plagiarism. -- yoda8myhead 20:26, 11 July 2009 (UTC)

It is difficult for me to avoid it completely. :( Not only for the language but also because I don't want to write something different in the meaning. --Dmeta 20:35, 11 July 2009 (UTC)
I have found that it's easier for me to avoid doing the same thing when I make edits using the hardcopy instead of a pdf. I don't know if you're using one or the other, but that has been my experience. I'm not trying to point a finger at you or anything, and I understand the language barrier comes into play here, just be aware that if something is too close to the source material it risks being removed and I'd hate to see all of your hard work go to waste because of a plagiarism charge. So just keep it in mind and do your best, but it's always better to err on the side of caution. An online thesaurus might help you out. I use when I need to think of a different word with a similar meaning. -- yoda8myhead 20:51, 11 July 2009 (UTC)
I've found that it sometimes helps to leave the article for another day, think about it for a bit, and approach it from another angle. Sometimes I've even gone so far as to write an article without reference to the source, going back after its written to make corrections and citations. -- Heaven's Agent 20:54, 11 July 2009 (UTC)
Thanks. I'll see what I could do. --Dmeta 14:43, 12 July 2009 (UTC)
