“Also, please do not post which Creative Commons Liscense a character is using by name or link to the public deed.”

What was the reason for this rule? I advocate that we rescind it and instead actively encourage creators of new characters to specify the exact Creative Commons license. This is a new era in PDSH history; we need better rules. —ElyaqimNYC (talk) 02:46, September 16, 2016 (UTC)

I sorta remember the reason(s) why (I also remember being adamantly for it - I think it was even my idea, to be honest) but, I'm gonna try to find it before sharing what I remember. Either way, I'm open to reconsidering based on how this thread develops. One thing I really don't want to see, though, is separate categories created for each license (but, I'll hold my reasons until when/if I can find the original conversation).Cebr1979 (talk) 05:57, September 16, 2016 (UTC)
This is not the conversation I'm thinking of but, it's the closest I can find right now. Will keep looking for the original, though.Cebr1979 (talk) 06:30, September 16, 2016 (UTC)
Top of my talk page. CodeAndReload (talk) 06:39, September 16, 2016 (UTC)
Yep! I literally just stumbled upon that right now! LolCebr1979 (talk) 06:45, September 16, 2016 (UTC)
(P.S.: Long time no see, Code. Welcome back.)Cebr1979 (talk) 06:46, September 16, 2016 (UTC)
There's also this conversation.Cebr1979 (talk) 06:47, September 16, 2016 (UTC)
I think that's it. I thought there was one big conversation that covered everything but, am either wrong or it's lost to the wikia gods somewhere. As far I am seeing, however, all these mini-conversations cover everything so I'm going to stop looking.Cebr1979 (talk) 06:52, September 16, 2016 (UTC)
These conversations seem to be about categories rather than about specifying a license on a character’s page. In fact, the Creative Commons category page apparently contradicts the FAQ page by saying that specifying a license should be done in a note on a character page. —ElyaqimNYC (talk) 06:55, September 16, 2016 (UTC)
(That part of the category's page was written before the FAQ was updated and I guess we all forgot to fix the category's wording)Cebr1979 (talk) 07:38, September 16, 2016 (UTC)
Ya, then there's definitely another conversation somewhere but... I'm done looking for tonight. I know CodeAndReload was a part of that conversation so maybe he remembers?Cebr1979 (talk) 06:59, September 16, 2016 (UTC)
There's this but... At that time, I think Code and I were both more interested in fighting then making any sense so it's really not much help.Cebr1979 (talk) 07:02, September 16, 2016 (UTC)
Agreed!  CodeAndReload (talk) 07:22, September 16, 2016 (UTC)
