We are preparing to upgrade our copyright license. Part of that project is updating all pages that mention the specific license. To help streamline that change in the future, we are implementing a template {{Current CC Version}} to reduce the number of places we have to change text.

The edit-protected change we need involves replacing any occurrences of the following text:

[ Creative Commons Attribution 2.5 license]

..with {{Current CC Version}} that will transclude our current version.

The template currently renders the following; Creative Commons Attribution 2.5 License. Therefore this change can be implemented now.

Once we are ready to do the license upgrade, we can then change the text in that template to reflect the current version and that will in-turn update all pages that include {{Current CC Version}}.

We have a list of edit-protected pages that need changed here: Wikinews_talk:Copyright#Pages_to_update_when_license_is_updated_from_2.5_to_4.0 That list includes pages I've already changed, so you can see any one of those for an example.

I started to put edit-protected requests on each page, but thought posting one request here might be better.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Michael.C.Wright (Talk/Published) 14:40, 25 June 2024 (UTC)Reply

Thank you


Thank you so much for the super long and probably incredibly difficult review of On the campaign trail in the USA, May 2024 as well as keeping a great contributor around (even if it caused me to need to Gatwick a story).

If you're up for it, the review backlog is quite large still (although I'm confident that every article there combined isn't nearly the size of that behomoth) Me Da Wikipedian (talk) 23:37, 28 June 2024 (UTC)Reply

It was quite tough but worth it. I'm sure I've made some mistake somewhere in there but it needed to be published, if only so I could read about a CBD gummy 😁. At this time it has gone past midnight here. I'll try to review some of the rest tomorrow. [24Cr][talk] 23:47, 28 June 2024 (UTC)Reply
