Template talk:Wikipedia-notice


Acknowledge source? [5 June 2009]

Template seems almost identical to templates on older wikis, such as Genealogy Wikia. Acknowledge source? Robin Patterson 05:47, 23 July 2008 (EDT)

Thanks for reminding me. Nice to have you back :-).--Dallan 14:30, 24 July 2008 (EDT)

Your notice is not compliant with GFDL. The proper thing would be to create a Familypedia-notice with the same text as that for the Wikipedia-notice. You acknowleged Robin. Under terms of GFDL, it is proper to acknowledge all contributors (there were about 7 for this particular template), a link to the history of content you have copied from Familypedia is proper. This principle is reflected in the text you have copied. Perhaps when copying material in the future, it would be wise to consider its content.

Good luck with your web site. -Phlox 12:51, 5 June 2009 (EDT)

I apologize for the mis-attribution. Good luck with Familypedia as well.--Dallan 10:04, 23 June 2009 (EDT)
