Hi Stefan, thanks for joining us and contributing here! Here's the official welcome:

Welcome![edit source]


Hi Stefan,

Welcome to the Appropedia wiki. Please make yourself at home! If you need a general wiki-tutorial, see the main help page (or the more in-depth one on WikiEducator).

Check your preferences and be sure you verify your email address and turn on email notification if you'd like it -- you can find out when your talk page, or any page on your watchlist, is modified. You may want to upload a photo or information about yourself to your userpage (which is at https://www.appropedia.org/User:Stefan).

If you have a particular interest or project in mind, go ahead and start it! If you have questions or suggestions, the best place to leave them is at the Village pump - you should get a fast response. Or, feel free to leave me a note on my talk page if you have further questions, need help finding your way around, have a cool idea for a project, or just want to chat.

Glad to have you here!

I was wondering whether you'd had any contact with the copyright holders of the material you added at Hydraulic Ram pump & Category:Water filters? --Chriswaterguy 21:27, 2 September 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]

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)Reply[reply]
