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).
