Help:Based on work by

From Appropedia
Jump to: navigation, search

This is a technical guideline.

The notice at the bottom of every page has a notice of this form:

"This page was last modified [time, date]. Based on work by [User1 - most recent editor], [User2 - next most recent editor], [User 3, User4, User5...] of Appropedia.

When a page is created by an anonymous user who later creates an account, the account holder will not be credited in the footer unless they then edit the page again.

Changing the attribution notice[edit]

When moving a page (for whatever reason) be sure and leave a clear edit summary. And if doing it manually in order to change how the "Based on work by" notice displays at the bottom, note this in the edit summary, and be sure and replace the old page with a redirect.

If a spammer or vandal edits a page, they also show up in the footer, unless their account is blocked and merged.
