Suggested change

I'd like to suggest the template be changed to include a link to the Creative Commons license as shown in the example below. Web (talk) 10:17, 30 July 2011 (MSD)

The below content is licensed according to Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike License contrary to the public domain logo at the foot of the page. It originally appeared on http://en.wikipedia.org. The original article might still be accessible here. You can find a list of the article's previous contributors on the talk page.
Good idea. Updated. Govind (talk) 02:27, 7 September 2011 (MSD)
More accurately you "MIGHT ALSO BE ABLE TO FIND a list of the article's previous contributors on the talk page." Mathewignash (talk) 03:09, 7 September 2011 (MSD)

Because this template does not always appear in top level mainspace articles and could benefit from a variable, the wikitext "[[Wikipedia:{{PAGENAME}}|here]]", parsed as "here", should instead have a variable and "FULL" prepended to PAGENAME to form "[[Wikipedia:{{{1|{{FULLPAGENAME}}}}}|here]]", parsed as "here".

More suggested changes

I'd like to get feedback on a number of suggestions I have.

  1. Use the template at the bottom of articles, rather than the top, so people don't have to scroll to the top and bottom of articles to determine the licensing.
  2. Change the wording to reflect that Wikipedia content is released under 2 different licenses since 2009 as described at wikipedia:WP:Licensing update.
  3. Change the look of the notice so it's a little easier on the eyes. See example below.
This content is released under the Creative Commons license CC-BY-SA 3.0 and the GNU license GFDL because it originated at Wikipedia and may still be accessible here. A list of previous contributors is available on the talk page.

Feedback on the proposed changes is very much welcomed. Thanks. 16:46, 9 June 2012 (MSD)
