Mediawiki, the software that runs Wikiversity and its sister projects, has a feature that allows importing of pages from other wikis. When a page is imported that way, the edit history is preserved and the license observed. Currently, we can import pages from Wikipedia, Wikibooks, betawikiversity, Wikiquote and Wikisource.

Request to import this wikipage into WikiJournal Preprints/Leptospirosis. The wikipage just updated into Good article status. Would like the journal to reflect the highest quality available Wiki version of the article. Thank you. Cerevisae (discusscontribs) 13:28, 23 August 2019 (UTC)

@Cerevisae:  N Not done Unfortunately, the import is failing. There are too many changes for it to import with history, and there's a database lock preventing it from importing without history. Just copy and paste and include a link in the edit summary when you update the most recent content. Sorry. -- Dave Braunschweig (discusscontribs) 21:36, 23 August 2019 (UTC)
No problem Dave Braunschweig. I am unable to update the pre-print because of this one "Error: This action has been automatically identified as harmful, and therefore disallowed. If you believe your action was constructive, please inform an administrator of what you were trying to do. A brief description of the abuse rule which your action matched is: New User Blocked Edit". I tried to request custodian action to unblock me but there is no response to my question. I actually have a complete template ready for the updated version of the pre-print. Do you mind if I ask you to copy and paste for me at one go from my sandbox? I am blocked from editing my own sandbox also. That's why I put it on Wikipedia. The coding is not compatile on wikipedia so you can see some codes here and there.Cerevisae (discusscontribs) 06:19, 24 August 2019 (UTC)
Problem resolved. After I made my tenth edit on Wikiversity, I am able to update the pre-print without being blocked. Thanks. Cerevisae (discusscontribs) 06:26, 24 August 2019 (UTC)
@Cerevisae: Sorry, our abuse filter isn't optimal, but it is blocking more vandalism than false positives. I appreciate your dedication to getting it posted. You should be good to go now. -- Dave Braunschweig (discusscontribs) 14:32, 24 August 2019 (UTC)
