UN & permissions: new section
It needs serious attention - thanks for your work on this! --[[User:Chriswaterguy|Chriswaterguy]] 12:14, 10 January 2010 (UTC)
 
== UN & permissions ==
 
Re [[United Nations Population Fund]], the [http://www.unfpa.org/public/pid/3802Copyrights (c) and Terms of Use for www.unfpa.org] aren't strictly compatible with our CC-BY-SA license, as they disallow commercial use. (Same goes for pretty much all UN & World Bank sites, I think.)
 
Not that I expect them to make a fuss about one page on our wiki, but thinking about our strategy here, as we make more organization pages.
 
This can be dealt with by rewriting, though that's a lot bit of work. Another thing that will help, though, is the project to make lots of stubs: [[Appropedia:Stubs from Wikipedia articles]]. (That's a lot of work too, and it's just me that's enthusiastic about it - but I figure that culling articles is quicker than writing them, and then they can have content added to fill in missing areas - even taking a sentence here and there from another website, with less concern about copyright than if we were copying whole pages.
 
How does that sound? I hope to take steps on this stub project in the next couple of weeks. --[[User:Chriswaterguy|Chriswaterguy]] 15:08, 11 January 2010 (UTC)
