GPL textEdit

"Confusing the licenses" says "You may:

...Include images under any of the following licenses: public domain, GFDL, CC-BY, CC-BY-SA, BSD, GPL, LGPL. ..."

How about text from a GPL html page? The ones I have in mind are all part of http://www.freecol.org/docs/FreeCol.html, a very detailed user guide for the strategy game FreeCol. I would love to have it on the Civ wiki so that its pages could be easily linked to and from, to a greater extent than the guide links them.

I'll pass this on, but I suggest using Special:Contact for legal-style questions - easier to get it to the right people that way :) Kirkburn (talk) @Wikia 16:19, 23 January 2009 (UTC)
Thank you. I've now used the contact form and got a reply; see [Wikia Support Request #10039]. — Robin Patterson (Talk) 00:44, 27 January 2009 (UTC)

Ownership Edit

It says, "The wikis are owned by the communities..." It seems more factual that the wikis are owned by Wikia, Inc. -- ResearchBiz 13:18, March 7, 2010 (UTC)

The idea is no one person (such as the founder or an administrator) is absolutely in charge of the wiki; they don't own it. The community makes the majority of the decisions on the wiki. Wikia usually doesn't make the decisions for a specific wiki, seldom do they make a decision for the wiki, and usually the community is there to think for itself.

Redlink Edit

There's a redlink to Help:Licenses in the second section of this page. Wasn't sure if it's supposed to be Help:Licensing or Help:Image copyright tags or something else, so I'll just point it out here. Elseweyr  @Wikia  talkstalk 21:02:01, March 19, 2014 (UTC)
