Look, the guidelines of creating the article stated that I was supposed to quote the entire article on the section labelled article, and I thought I gave credit by listing the source of the article. I wasn't really sure how to implement it. If you wish to delete it, and you overrule my wish of it being kept in, fine. But at least explain how I'm supposed to write in the article section in such a way that doesn't indicate that I'm supposed to post the entire article on there.

This, in most cases, will be the lead sentence or sentences of the article. These sentences should give the most important and relevant information of the article. In journalism/inverted pyramid style, this information is generally the who/what/where/when/why/how angle.

Example: According to a Media Create weekly rating, Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of the Sky sold 141,771 in its first day on shelves. The game ranked above Sengoku Basara Battle Heroes and Mario & Luigi RPG 3.
Example: The Secret Key will be available over Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection and at Toys "R" Us stores in the US, Canada, and Puerto Rico. It will be available via Wi-Fi from April 20 to May 12 and at Toys "R" Us stores from April 19-26.
Article text
The article itself, with the blurb text first.

Alright. First, if you were to use the exact text with stating the source, make sure to add {{verbatim}} to it. However, lately we've been trying to phase out the use of the verbatim tag due to, well, people not knowing what verbatim is. -_-
When the guidelines mention article, it means the article written by the user, not the original source. Otherwise, the contents can be seen as plagiarism.
Basically, the blurb section is for a short summary of the article the user wrote, the article section the full article that the user wrote. The source is to be stated at the end of the article.
tl;dr - Whenever "article" is shown, it is meant to be of the Bulbanews-written article. The "source" is where the info came from.--immewnitythemew 02:37, 19 December 2010 (UTC)
