The license used by a wiki is made clear in the footer and/or on the edit page. The information below refers only to wikis which are released under CC-BY-SA.
Editing at Constructed Worlds Wiki[edit source]
To grow the commons of free knowledge and free culture, all users contributing to Constructed Worlds Wiki projects agree to grant broad permissions to the general public to re-distribute and re-use their contributions freely for any purpose including commercial use. Such use is allowed where attribution is given and the same freedom to re-use and re-distribute applies to any derivative works. By editing Constructed Worlds Wiki, you agree to license any text you add under the Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike License 4.0 (Unported).
As an author, you agree to be attributed in any of the following fashions: a) through a hyperlink (where possible) or URL to the article or articles you contributed to, b) through a hyperlink (where possible) or URL to an alternative, stable online copy which is freely accessible, which conforms with the license, and which provides credit to the authors in a manner equivalent to the credit given on this website, or c) through a list of all authors. (Any list of authors may be filtered to exclude very small or irrelevant contributions.)
Importing text[edit source]
If you want to import text that you have found elsewhere or that you have co-authored with others, you can only do so if it is available under terms that are compatible with the CC-BY-SA license.
Work which you do not hold the copyright to, or which is not available under this license, should not be added to Constructed Worlds Wiki.
If you import text under a compatible license which requires attribution, you must, in a reasonable fashion, credit the author(s). Where such credit is commonly given through page histories (such as copying within Constructed Worlds Wiki), it is sufficient to give attribution in the edit summary, which is recorded in the page history, when importing the text.
Non-text files[edit source]
Freely licensed or public domain images are strongly preferred on Constructed Worlds Wiki.
Non-text media on Constructed Worlds Wiki should not be assumed to be available under the same license as the text. Please view the media description page for details about the license of any specific media file.
If you are uploading files to Constructed Worlds Wiki, you should cite the source of the file, attribute the authors, and note any copyright information, where applicable. Copyright-violating images are subject to deletion. Copyright information must be added to the image description page of every uploaded image. Images and other uploaded files may be available under an alternative free license, or used under fair use guidelines.
Failure to comply[edit source]
Failure to comply with this policy may result in an editing ban, as the administrators see fit.
