- Thanks for the note at my talk page. Are you planning to start over on the potential article, or were you expecting me to restore it? I Can, but want to know your preference. (If it is restore, it will have to take place in the morning.)--SPhilbrickT 03:45, 12 March 2011 (UTC)
- Hello. Unfortunately the source text is still not compatibly licensed; it needs to be released under the same licenses that Wikipedia uses, CC BY-SA 3.0 (this differs from the current licence as it does not restrict commercial use), and the GNU Free Documentation License.
Wikipedia:Donating copyrighted materials#Granting us permission to copy material already online has a suggested wording for this. Thank you. January (talk) 21:46, 13 March 2011 (UTC)
