Dear Japo.

I am glad you liked the review of the game. To be honest, I used the Wikipedia article and the summary in MobyGames to merge with my words and knowledge about the game in question.

This game is one of those that do not deserve to be forgotten in the Abandonware museum records.

Ohhh... that is a problem. It is not allow to plagiarize reviews from other sources. I thought this was clear.

Comparing to Mobygame and Wikipedia I see some things are copied, and I also see some original content that could be used. Do you think you can rewrite a fully original review?

No problems, dear Japo.

I can rewrite the review, but as we (I and the authors of the texts) will be based on the Roman period and its characteristics, it is quite possible that there are similarities in the texts.

I honestly did not know that there would be a restriction on copying text snippets, since I had considered them very good to describe (it is like marking texts and key words).

As I am busy at the moment, as soon as I can, I will rewrite the text and send it via PM to you and marko river.

See you later.

Oh, I didn't notice this.

Yeah, please do not use exact sopies of the text snippest, we are pretty much against that.

If the new rewritten text is going to be similar to the first one, it is OK. It is understandable that you want to say the same thing, but just it shouldn't be exact wording as other source. So just try saying it in your own way, that's cool.

And once again, thank you for contributing

Thankfully I mentioned the sources of my review to Japo, if it could not be hard to re-edit the text after it was uploaded on the main site.

I suppose the game will be available for download, right?

I am willing to write more game reviews that I know and enjoy. Unfortunately I believe GOG.com has these games available on online store.

Dear Japo and marko river.

I sent a private message to you saying that I rewrote the review. I hope it is acceptable to you.

Any problem with the review, please contact me.

Thanks, we are editing it. But some plagiarized parts you've just rephrased further but kept them. However I think we can do something with the many original parts you did contribute into the text.

In the future if you want to contribute reviews, please write always original content. You may consult other websites to find out facts e.g. what year the game was released; but never take any sentences from them, no matter how much you rephrase them!

My great apologies, O great Imperial Majesty, Japo(deis) . Maybe Poke-man misunderstood the words (like a big river) of the Grand marko River . Poke-man now understands the contents of the Imperial edict .

Wow! I thought I was the only Abandonian who likes puns, jokes and nonsense expressions.

Please do not tease the Emperor Japo(deis) otherwise he will be in (S)pain. As for Capo, he may scold you digitally, pulling your ears.

Dear yoga , to calm your enthusiasm, nothing better than practicing (H)yoga...

The best kind of (H)yoga!

Gruntz got approved a few days ago, so I made review for it.

I also have the game archive - 270 MB.

Who do I send it all to?
