Reply from a custodian...[edit source]

Request custodian action

Hello, I got your note about needing a custodian to certify your students' accounts, but I don't understand what you mean by this. I'm sure it's something straightforward that other custodians have done before. Please let me know how I can help. --HappyCamper 20:10, 15 December 2011 (UTC)

Hi, thanks for certifying this account. this kind of certification is what i meant. once a student opens an account, s/he has to wait till a custodian like you certify it so that s/he can begin to upload files and edit articles without having to keep typing in the captcha expression. thanks for a quick certification of this new account.

No problem. I posted a followup here. I'm pretty sure there is a grace period of 4 days and 10 edits before a new account can upload files to Wikiversity, so this is something to take into account. The sandbox might be a good place for making some of these edits. Also, if you run into other issues on Wikiversity, please do let us know, we're glad to assist. --HappyCamper 05:04, 16 December 2011 (UTC)

ok, great. now i understand the process. before i associated the greeting message with the ability to upload after 4 days. but your explanation clarifies the process. i now have a better explanation to students. i also cross-post here. Egm4313.s12 11:36, 16 December 2011 (UTC)

Image uploads[edit source]

Hi Professor. You may recall I've previously tried to clear up some confusion as to the licensing status of your uploads. With reference to your two recent images (File:Iea.s12.damping.svg and File:Pea2.s12.team.structure.svg), I note that you have used the {{CC-by-sa-3.0-dual}} licence tag. I've proposed this is deleted because it creates a confusing situation.

Can you clarify whether you are releasing these files under the Creative Commons Attribution ShareAlike 3.0 OR the Creative Commons Attribution NonCommercial ShareAlike 3.0 licence. I doesn't really seem possible that you can choose both since one permits commercial reuse and the other does not so anyone wanting to reuse them commercial could ignore the more restrictive licence.

It is also unclear as to why you refer to "see also MultiLicenseWithCC-BySA-Any" since that template deals with text contributions rather than images.

If this situation cannot be resolved then these and the many other images uploaded by you and your students with similar circumstances may have to be deleted since the non-commercial restriction confusion is a problem. Adambro 16:26, 2 January 2012 (UTC)

i prefer the Creative Commons Attribution NonCommercial ShareAlike 3.0 licence for all images. please change accordingly. do inform the students before taking any action. thanks. ps: this template was put in my uploads by a bot; it was not my original licensing template; then after i just use the template that the bot put in. Egm6322.s12 23:00, 10 January 2012 (UTC)
Yes, I'm aware a bot did replace what you entered originally but I think the problem was there to begin with and still exists on your recent uploads such as File:Pea1.f11.mtg42.djvu. You've said that you prefer the Creative Commons Attribution NonCommercial ShareAlike 3.0 licence for all images but what exactly does that mean? Are you not prepared to allow commercial resuse, in which case you should only mention Attribution Share-Alike version 3.0 but in that situation the images would likely need to be deleted. If you are prepared to allow commercial reuse, then perhaps you would be better not mentioning Creative Commons Attribution NonCommercial ShareAlike 3.0. That would avoid the confusion created by the current situation where it isn't clear whether commercial use is actually permitted. Adambro 21:11, 12 January 2012 (UTC)

images and text are alike, and should be treated with the same dual license. the dual license allows one to use one license or the other license. if someone wants to make money on our work, they can select the license without NC. Egm6322.s12 15:16, 13 January 2012 (UTC)

Licensing and templates[edit source]

Hi, I did get your message that you left on my talk page and have spent the week trying to get more information on the matter. I still need more time before I get back to you on the licensing / template issue above. --HappyCamper 16:08, 19 January 2012 (UTC)

Student work should be in user space, not main space - please move[edit source]

Hi Loc, Could you please move your students' work from the main space into their user spaces? For example, most of the content found under a search for "Egm4313.s12.team" is currently located in the main space: http://en.wikiversity.org/w/index.php?title=Special%3ASearch&profile=all&search=Egm4313.s12.team&fulltext=Search Main space is for learning resources. Individual student work should be in the user space unless it has broader educational value. I have moved some content (e.g., http://en.wikiversity.org/w/index.php?title=Special%3ALog&type=move&user=Jtneill&page=&year=&month=-1&tagfilter=), but there is much more. Could you please follow up and move the rest of your students' content? Let me know if you'd like to discuss. Sincerely, James. -- Jtneill - Talk - c 09:33, 11 April 2012 (UTC)
