Creative Commons Licensing[edit]

Regarding [1], CC-BY-SA and CC-BY-NC-SA are not compatible. See https://wiki.creativecommons.org/wiki/Wiki/cc_license_compatibility for an explanation from Creative Commons. The contribution / edit box on any main space page (or any other page) indicates that contributions are made under the CC-BY-SA license. It is not possible to convert CC-BY-NC-SA to CC-BY-SA unless you are the copyright holder, and it is not possible to license any Wikimedia wiki page as anything other than CC-BY-SA. -- Dave Braunschweig (discusscontribs) 17:23, 8 October 2019 (UTC)

FYI, my "proposal" was that on certain pages the CC-BY-SA be 'replaced' by CC-BY-NC-SA as per the "other conditions may apply" mentioned at the bottom of the page. Keep in mind two things:
  1. It is not reasonable to approach the WMF with such a complicated proposal in order to marginally improve one resource.
  2. My main point was that administrators should not be second guessing each other's decisions without good reason.
But thanks for you effort to explain your decision (even though your effort was largely futile ;-)--Guy vandegrift (discusscontribs) 20:27, 8 October 2019 (UTC).

LongPages[edit]

FYI, I was looking at Special:LongPages and noticed that there were a few that you created (like Quizbank/HTW/FE) that are very close to the MediWiki maximum page size of 2MB. --mikeu talk 20:11, 26 October 2019 (UTC)

Mu301 Thanks for pointing this out. I noted that you did not ask me to delete the pages, but went ahead and looked at them anyway.
  1. If you look at this log you will see that I deleted a number of low quality and largely unviewed pages.
  2. It would also be possible to delete these-two pages since the same information is available elsewhere.
More deletions could be made, but only if I reorganize the pages. Some of these pages are long because they involve numerical problems with 20 or so random number inputs. While this might take a bit more space than software with an equation for the answer, I find it easier to program the questions this way.--Guy vandegrift (discusscontribs) 21:50, 26 October 2019 (UTC)
It looks fine. I just wanted to give you a heads up that you were getting close to the limit. It is probably better to create new content that is that large in pages that are split in 2 or 4. That makes it easier/faster for smaller/older devices to render the page. --mikeu talk 22:05, 26 October 2019 (UTC)

Email[edit]

I've sent you an email, FYI. Thanks. —Atcovi (Talk - Contribs) 19:48, 30 October 2019 (UTC)

I Got the email but am too busy this week. We have a 3-day weekend coming up.--Guy vandegrift (discusscontribs) 17:27, 6 November 2019 (UTC)


I love your Quantum Mechanics page. It is a great way to explain Physics without the mathematical underpinnings that so many people have a difficult time understanding.
