"Please note that any contributions you make to this site immediately belong to datacrystal.org" - does this not seem to conflict with the FDL? --{{User:Labmaster/Signature}} 03:30, 20 Oct 2005 (EDT)

Should some standards be laid out for the site? I'm seeing a few empty game pages, it has no rom hacks, or ROM/RAM submissions. I'd really like to delete the ones that have nothing in them.
:I think the intention of that comment was to state that submissions cannot be withdawl. Then again, [[User:Gau|Gau]] wrote it, not me. --[[User:AnyoneEB|AnyoneEB]] 06:08, 20 Oct 2005 (EDT)
 
::Indeed, that was the intention, and furthermore, my original text did not say "belong to datacrystal.org", but rather "become associated with" datacrystal.org.--[[User:Gau|Gau]] 07:29, 20 Oct 2005 (EDT)
 
  
There's no denying that this needs a major revision, however I'm unsure about the direction in which we should take this. On one hand, it is important that we make our information accessible. On the other hand, it is also important that we protect the site from those who would claim information on datacrystal as "theirs". (Datacrystal has dealt with this in the past, thus the language of the disclaimer; it was created as somewhat of a reactionary statement.) Furthermore, I'm inclined to wonder whether the FDL is actually fully compatible with the nature of our site; more input and discussion on this subject is certianly warranted. --[[User:Gau|Gau]] 07:57, 20 Oct 2005 (EDT)

:I'm not exactly sure what rights the creator does retain under the FDL. In reference to those ''copying'' a work, it states: "You may not use technical measures to obstruct or control the reading or further copying of the copies you make or distribute." but whether this applies to the original creator is unclear. There's an interesting article entitled 'Why You Shouldn't Use The GNU FDL' [http://home.twcny.rr.com/nerode/neroden/fdl.html here]. Another possible option is the [http://creativecommons.org/licenses/publicdomain Creative Commons license]. My understanding is that the original creator retains no rights whatsoever under a public domain dedication. --{{User:Labmaster/Signature}} 16:44, 21 Oct 2005 (EDT)

That is one example. I can find more if they are needed. Basically it just has a tiny bit of header info, but that's not relating at all to what this site is about.--[[User:Hiro1112|Hiro1112]] 04:09, 8 January 2007 (EST)

Should some standards be laid out for the site? I'm seeing a few empty game pages, it has no rom hacks, or ROM/RAM submissions. I'd really like to delete the ones that have nothing in them.
