Hi, plagiarism is not allowed. It is nice that you found some information that might be helpful/informative to other people. However, in that case it is best to give a short description of it instead of paste the entire text here.

Edit: I see you have added the link now. Though still you cannot copy the entire text here. So you'll either have to edit your post or I'll have to remove it.

Edit 2: Thank you for editing your post.


That's a bit unfair considering that 50% of the people that see it wouldn't press the link if there is a link and if the whole thing is posted here then they will read it. As long as you put the link in I'm sure it doesn't matter.

Lingots: I can't check my Lingots so can someone please tell me how much I have


There's nothing unfair about it. You cannot just copy large amounts of text, even if you put in a reference. It's similar to placing the entire text of a book on your own website to conclude that someone else wrote it. It's called copyright for a reason.


How do you put "copyright" like that. and thanks again


Search for “Markdown” in the discussions.


Thank you so much


Thank you for the advice


If I can reach C2 in italian, id like to start learning Japanese or Hindi
