Name of license is wrong[edit]

Name of license is wrong. Should be "Attribution-ShareAlike", not "Attribution/Share-Alike". Jason Quinn (talk) 20:50, 9 April 2014 (UTC)

Hmm. The default MediaWiki:Wikimedia-copyright uses "Attribution/Share-Alike". The name of the license used to be like that in the past? If it was changed, then we need to update it, imo. --Glaisher [talk] 05:01, 10 April 2014 (UTC)

Siebrand and PiRSquared17, thanks!. --Glaisher [talk] 16:48, 10 April 2014 (UTC)
@Glaisher, PiRSquared17: Hi. I am not fully sure of the scope of the fixes made by the changes to TWN mentioned in the bug thread, or how long they will take to propagate. Anyhow, I noticed this problem still exists for the copyright warning on Wikidata. It presumably still exists on a number of other WikiMedia projects as well. Is the only way to fix this globally to go to each wiki and do it manually? Seems like an appropriate task for a WMF employee to do. Getting the copyright message right should surely be a high-priority issue. It also raises the question how the mistake was not noticed before. Surely WikiMedia Legal has scrutinized these messages before? If not, seems like a big oversight. Should I try to raise the issue at the Wikimedia Foundation wiki or is there a better way?

That is because Wikidata uses a custom license. If needed I or someone else can run a bot to fix all of these. PiRSquared17 (talk) 23:16, 16 April 2014 (UTC)
I've updated the message at WD and posted edit requests at enWB, enWS, enWQ (updated), enWIKT & specieswiki. --Glaisher [talk] 05:24, 17 April 2014 (UTC)
All wikis above has been updated. Also requested on Wikiversity and Wikivoyage now. --Glaisher [talk] 08:52, 17 April 2014 (UTC)
