CC 4.0 By[edit]

Is the existence and notional use of Template:AHD-CC kosher? I was not under the impression that CC By SA 3.0 was compatible with CC By 4.0. --Izno (talk) 19:48, 13 October 2018 (UTC)

CC-BY-SA 3.0 content can be used under the terms of CC-BY-SA 4.0, but not the other way round [1]. I don't believe we allow CC-BY-SA 4.0 for text as all contributions have to be reusable under 3.0. Hut 8.5 19:59, 13 October 2018 (UTC)
  • Correct, CC-BY-SA-4.0 requires all re-use be licensed under 4.0 or later, so text under that license cannot be used here. The AHD is licensed under CC-BY-4.0, with no Share-Alike clause, and so does not have compatibility issues with BY-SA-3.0. CrowCaw 20:17, 13 October 2018 (UTC)

Per WP:ORDER hatnote should be placed above the tag policy notice. I think the shortcut in the hatnote is redundant, you can copy paste the source code for the hatnote below:

D&D images dispute[edit]

FYI: Pointer to relevant discussion elsewhere.

Please see Talk:List of Dungeons & Dragons monsters (1974–76)#Image use policy. I did not directly perform the cleanup I've called for, because it's conceivable there's a valid fair-use rationale. I'm not a US intellectual property attorney, after all, nor a copyright-policy-enforcement admin, so some consensus discussion might be in order before such a major change.  — SMcCandlish ¢ 😼  15:01, 17 November 2018 (UTC)
