I noticed you posted to Billlund that you updated some information on Copyrights. I think a disclosure on how the contributions will be treated by the users is very necessary for them to feel comfortable donating their time to create articles. Additionally, since the LDS project on Wikipedia is pretty active and, imho, fairly balanced presentation (although some articles provide too much credence to suspect sources) articles from there could create the seed of the articles here, as long as when they are copied, proper attribution is made to the source on wikipedia. Thus, the license here would have to comply with the GNU Free Documentation License ("GDL") in order for us to use the information here. Since I would like to do that - copy over some articles from Wikipedia and see what happens in the mormonwiki community - I am very interested in making sure the copyright here is such that I can copy over that information and be in compliance with the GDL.

Also - as a side note the proper location for your copyright information is MormonWiki:Copyrights since that page (I created it just before I left this) will be automatically linked to on the edit page (Click Edit and then click on the link: see Project:Copyrights for details). In the wiki software there is a concept of namespace - the main namespace - i.e. normal articles like Copyrights are the articles of the wiki. Project information is usually proceded by ProjectName: so that when people use the search engine they can search through just articles without any of the pages related to the rules of the community or other discussions that are not articles don't show up.

Editing at


I've try to edit on MormonWiki PT today and I could not do it.

I don't know what is happen but I think I need a Trusted status there to edit. Whatever, I saw you are a Bureaucrat and sysop (in this list) there, so, I ask you for the Trusted status there too.

I have one more doubt. For a new registred user, how is possible to editing at MormonWiki, including talk pages to ask for a autorization if that's blocked? Maybe you need a sysop looking for that there (nobody log-in there for days I think). How I can turn a sysop or Bureaucrat? Maybe I can take care of that...

Franklin: We've opened up the Portuguese wiki so anyone logged in can edit since we have enough help to moderate it. You should now be able to edit it, but I'll make you "Trusted" too. -Rmiller 20:13, 22 October 2008 (UTC)
