Talk:Bremer Freimarkt, oldest fair in Germany, reaches its climax

Original reportingEdit

I am visiting this event regularly since many years. --House1630 (talk) 18:46, 19 October 2012 (UTC) The whole German version was written be myself and is based on the German sources. The translation was also done only by me - using my own language knowledge and dictionary. I live in Bremen and I have observed the described events. --House1630 (talk) 21:38, 19 October 2012 (UTC)

I have taken three photos - two of them only today and published here for the first time. It's a document with the picture of the last group no. 146 from today - now the first picture on the left - and you can't find this fact elsewhere till now. Also some background informations are the result of my own research. The German sources are rather similar to the English sources - though they are newer. It is original reporting, because I am an eye witness and have been at the events for several times, so that most of the information is really trustworthy. --House1630 (talk) 15:14, 27 October 2012 (UTC)

If some of the background information is not in the sources, you need to specify here exactly which background information that is, and how you got it. Otherwise the reviewer would have to try and fail to find the information in the sources —a slow and painful process for the reviewer— and either
(a) remove it or
(b) find the article not-ready, requiring the writer to document it or remove it.

Copyright issuesEdit

  • Of course the licensor is not bound to the license he granted. He is free to use his work without any condition. That's basic knowledge.
  • And it doesn't matter if he says he translated his own work or 'just wrote' it.

--Itu (talk) 23:22, 19 October 2012 (UTC)

Of course. Supposing there is a sole licensor. --Pi zero (talk) 23:25, 19 October 2012 (UTC)
He is. Other edits are below ToO. --Itu (talk) 23:29, 19 October 2012 (UTC)
Yup. --Pi zero (talk) 23:42, 19 October 2012 (UTC)

Furthermore to say: en-wikinews as well as de-wikinews Terms of use both are about attributing just "wikinews", without specifying language. So theres no special problem with interchanging texts between de-WN and en-WN.... --Itu (talk) 14:26, 20 October 2012 (UTC)

Hm. Giving credit where due isn't just a legal issue, it's a social and moral one as well. Nor is credit (let alone copyright) the only issue involved with documenting the origins of the material. There's legal, and then there's desirable. --Pi zero (talk) 15:33, 20 October 2012 (UTC)
So the wikinews-license smashs with social and moral issues. One may think so. But, since this license isn't new, that's a common thing; its better to discuss this at 'higher Place'. In this case the author would have to credit himself, and he did ;) Regarding 'documenting the origins' read the second item in my first statement. Regards. --Itu (talk) 17:01, 20 October 2012 (UTC)
Huh? What one does to acknowledge the de.wn article was never a major issue for this article. --Pi zero (talk) 13:02, 23 October 2012 (UTC)

Review of revision 1665867 [Not ready]Edit

The third source is an English report! And I hope, you'll be able to read and understand it. I did NO automatic translation! --House1630 (talk) 17:33, 25 October 2012 (UTC)

No-one has suggested you did automatic translation. The translation difficulty was the need for a reviewer to examine the sources. --Pi zero (talk) 18:29, 25 October 2012 (UTC)
