Hi Stefan, thanks for joining us and contributing here! Here's the official welcome:
I work for this organization as a volunteer.
- Ah, very cool.
- It's very easy to have misunderstandings over the license, so could we ask a favor? Please find out who in the organization has authority to give permission to use the content (i.e. to release some of the usual rights of copyright). Show them the license, as stated in these two places:
- Then have them email us (e.g. chriswaterguy at appropedia dot org) to say that that they are releasing the work under Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike 3.0. An even better way is to put the license mark on the site - see http://creativecommons.org/choose/ and let us know if you need help.
- I'm sorry that's it's not as easy as just asking if it's okay to use the content. Sometimes people are happy for Appropedia to use the work, but don't realize that this means anyone else can also use the work for any purpose. We think this is a good thing, but we need to make sure the copyright owner also thinks it's a good thing :-). This makes sure everything goes smoothly later on.
- We do want to support your and your organization, so don't hesitate to be in touch by email or on the wiki. --Chriswaterguy 08:52, 22 September 2009 (UTC)
