None changed content with CC-BY-SA 3.0


If I create the context under CC-BY-SA 3.0, so the identical content (none change[1]) You don't can share under CC-BY-SA 4.0.

Ok, maybe, You can use the fair-use, but what, when the country is not fair-use?

Are you storing the data in none-fair-use legislative countries?

@Dušan Kreheľ: FYI: m:Terms of use/Creative Commons 4.0/Legal note#Mechanism for the upgrade. SCP-2000 (talk) 16:47, 9 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@SCP-2000: I know. My last edit of page m:User:Dušan_Kreheľ was under CC BY-SA 3.0. So why m:User:Dušan_Kreheľ?export=raw is under CC BY-SA 4.0? That would be under CC BY-SA 3.0. Why not so? You look u de:Wikipedia:Kurier and section "Wenn CC BY-SA 3.0 → CC BY-SA 4.0 verboten ist".
You link write about adaptations, but about none original unchanges pages. Dušan Kreheľ (talk) 17:47, 9 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

See m:Terms of use/Creative Commons 4.0/FAQ#How can we "upgrade" the license?: Revisions of pages before the upgrade to the 4.0 version will continue to be available under the version 3.0 of the license. Tranminh360 (talk) 13:20, 13 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Tranminh360: It is not stated anywhere in writing with the licensed content as far as I know. Dušan Kreheľ (talk) 13:44, 15 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Broken link

I think the link for Robot policy should point to wikitech:Robot policy, wikitech:Robot Policy does not exist. --Ameisenigel (talk) 20:03, 12 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Good catch! Thank you! Link updated. --Gregory Varnum (Wikimedia Foundation) [he/him] (talk) 21:36, 14 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

[Article] Fixing violations of CC BY-SA 3.0 and GFDL licenses" (Slovak)

A new document was created, which is less "legal" and more "practical". It is about "Fixing violations of CC BY-SA 3.0 and GFDL licenses" (Slovak). Dušan Kreheľ (talk) 07:34, 14 July 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Can we get (or is there already) a redirect to Policy:Terms of Use#paid-contrib-disclosure, which could be handled as an interwiki link from project:Conflict of interest (Q4663309)? Please ping me if replying, I don't maintain a watchlist on this wiki. - Jmabel (talk) 01:53, 10 August 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Jmabel: Apologies for the delay. I have created the redirect: Policy:PAID. However, I am unable to link it to d:Q4663309 as I get an error about the page the redirect is pointing to already being linked. I am not sure that you can link redirects to Wikidata - but I am not an expert on that - so open to input or others finishing the task. --Gregory Varnum (Wikimedia Foundation) [he/him] (talk) 19:04, 5 December 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@GVarnum-WMF: yeah, seems you now can't link redirects from Wikidata. I think that's a change from a couple of years ago. - Jmabel (talk) 20:54, 5 December 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Jmabel: Hmmm - what do you think of a Disambig page? Something like Legal:Digital Millennium Copyright Act but specific to paid editing? Probably house it at Policy:Paid editing. Alternatively, go in "Conflict of interest" wording to match the Wikidata entry? ----Gregory Varnum (Wikimedia Foundation) [he/him] (talk) 21:19, 5 December 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@GVarnum-WMF: I'm open to any reasonable solution. Just to be clear what the actual problem is that I was trying to solve: the global policy expressed here is currently not linked in the obvious manner to the item that covers the policies for each individual Wikipedia or other wiki. - Jmabel (talk) 21:41, 5 December 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Jmabel: How about these two edits - do those work for achieving this goal? --Gregory Varnum (Wikimedia Foundation) [he/him] (talk) 23:31, 5 December 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@GVarnum-WMF: Looks good to me. - Jmabel (talk) 23:38, 5 December 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Jmabel: Great - thank you for the feedback and suggestion! --Gregory Varnum (Wikimedia Foundation) [he/him] (talk) 23:47, 5 December 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Terms not displaying correctly on mobile

On the mobile version of the wiki, the sections in yellow are displayed only if the section 13 is opened, as if they were its subsections. I don't know if this is a bug in Mediawiki, but the terms should be fixed immediately, as the sections which are supposed to be more visible are actually made less visible.

@Janhrach: Thank you for reporting this issue. I believe it should now be fixed, but please let me know if you are still experiencing issues. Thank you! --Gregory Varnum (Wikimedia Foundation) [he/him] (talk) 03:26, 6 December 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
