Your recent changes to MechaniQue

The text you've added here looks like it's been copied from somewhere else, although I can't find the source. Please bear in mind that 'all contributions to Esolang are considered to be released under the Public Domain dedication'; where's the original source? Did you write the original source yourself, and if not, is it public domain? ais523 10:24, 22 March 2007 (UTC)

changes to MechaniQue

The text is GPL licensed AND written by myself. I am the creator of MechaniQue (Gabor). Sorry for posting without being logged in properly. I created the text both for this WIKI and my personal website on MechaniQue/J.

The problem is that all content on Esolang is licenced as public domain; the GPL places (minor) restrictions on redistribution and relicensing, and so is incompatible with a public domain dedication (which doesn't place any restrictions at all, not even on relicensing or incorporation into a commercial work without credit). See Esolang:Copyrights for more detail. --ais523 13:03, 23 March 2007 (UTC)


Then I'll license it public domain.. I don't care. I wrote the text myself, So the texts are free, you may do with it whatever you want. MechaniQue is licensed GPL to protect it somehow and keep it open. Is it not allowed to have MechaniQue in the language list because of it's GPL license? I thought this only applied to the texts.

Don't worry, the current version's fine, and you can have the language in the language list (the descriptions have to be public-domain, but the language itself can be under any licence). Hope that helps! (I'll copy this to both your IP and username talk pages.) --ais523 17:32, 24 March 2007 (UTC)
