GNU Free Documentation License[edit source]
The GNU Free Documentation License (GFDL) is a copyleft license for free content, designed by the Free Software Foundation (FSF).
The GFDL is a "copyleft" license, meaning the content can be copied, modified, and redistributed so long as the new version grants the same freedoms to others and acknowledges the authors of the Chrono Wiki page. Chrono Wiki content will, therefore, remain free forever and can be used by anybody subject to certain restrictions, most of which serve to ensure that freedom.
Wikipedia, one of the web's most popular reference works, uses the GFDL, as well as Wikia. Using the same license as that site makes it easy for Chrono Wiki users to reuse the content from Wikipedia or Wikia. You must adhere to the GFDL when using Wikipedia content.
Image guidelines[edit source]
GFDL or public domain images are strongly preferred on Chrono Wiki. Copyright-violating images are subject to deletion. Copyright information must be added to the image description page of every uploaded image. Images and other uploaded files may be available under an alternative free license, or used under fair use guidelines. Wikimedia Commons and Flickr are excellent places to search for public domain and GFDL images. Do not assume that an image found on Google, Facebook, or other forms of search engines and social media sites are free to use. 90% of the time, they are not.
