Who put "Subject to disclaimers in here"? It's an unannounced an retrospective variation to the licensing conditions. I specifically moved my pictures from Wikipedia because I disagreed with the disclaimers it added to the GNU FDL. The FDL explicitly says no extra conditions (a disclaimer is an extra condition). As a copyright holder I'm not happy that someone has varied the license.

It's not good enough to make a new "no disclaimer template" and tell people to use that. Who ever did this should have made a "with disclaimer" template and convinced copyright holders to opt in. It's not acceptable, rude (and illegal) to simply change a license without the permission of the copyright holder. John Dalton 03:12, 20 September 2007 (UTC)

It had to be done because someone added disclaimers to the en wiki standard GFDL template and many images were moved to Commons without replicating the disclaimers (with may have caused licensing problems). Please use {{GFDL-user-en-no-disclaimers}} instead or our standard {{GFDL}}/{{GFDL-self}} template if you are the author. --Denniss 18:06, 21 September 2007 (UTC)
The disclaimers were originally added on the en Wikipedia tag. Contrary to what you suggest, GFDL does allow disclaimers. It says, " The Document may include Warranty Disclaimers next to the notice which states that this License applies to the Document. These Warranty Disclaimers are considered to be included by reference in this License, but only as regards disclaiming warranties [...]" and the disclaimers can not be removed, because of 4. O "Preserve any Warranty Disclaimers." Thus, the solution you see was undertaken. Superm401 - Talk 05:53, 25 March 2008 (UTC)

Why does {{GFDL-user-en}} still redirect here, even though en:Template:GFDL-self and en:Template:GFDL-user no longer include disclaimers - someone should fix this (after first fixing all calls to this redirect). 21:33, 19 January 2008 (UTC)

This is no longer a simple redirect, though it still says "Subject to disclaimers" (ironically with a disclaimer on the disclaimer, "NOTE: "subject to disclaimers" below may not actually apply"). The best solution is obviously to directly specify the appropriate tag. Superm401 - Talk 05:53, 25 March 2008 (UTC)

One "is" to much[edit]

“This tag is is intended ...”

--Aconcagua 20:42, 30 May 2008 (UTC) {{editprotected}} Please remove the second "is." « Gonzo fan2007 (talkcontribs) 21:12, 7 July 2008 (UTC)

✓ Done; thanks.  — Mike.lifeguard | @en.wb 02:48, 8 July 2008 (UTC)

Big red notice[edit]

Maybe not so big and red? It's only likely to end up with this licence if from Wikipedia anyway, so I don't think it's that huge a message for all the pages it is on. Ian13 (talk) 18:40, 10 July 2008 (UTC) {{editprotected}}

✓ Done I just took it out. It really doesn't have anything to do with the license itself—more of a note to editors, not reusers. Rocket000 (talk) 06:44, 21 July 2008 (UTC)


{{Edit protected}} Doesn't look like this template pass the "migration" parameter though to the transcluded GFDL-en template, might want to fix that. --Sherool (talk) 19:08, 24 June 2009 (UTC)

I've just spotted something which is related to this template and which might interest people who follow this page. See COM:VPC#"Subject to disclaimers" for more information. --Stefan4 (talk) 14:51, 25 January 2012 (UTC)

documentation is missing[edit]

After my upload of an image from en:wiki to commons with the Upload Bot (Rich Smith) the license information topic look like this:

[[:en:User:{{{1}}}|{{{1}}}]] at the English language Wikipedia, the copyright holder of this work, hereby publishes it under the following license:

Cause there were no doc-page to this template and i have no idea about programming it needs some time for me to find out that the bot-generated code has to changed this way. (hope thats correct?)
So dear admin, maybe you can add a doc-page to this template source. Thanks a lot.!!
ps.: I started allready a little little doc-page. --W like wiki (talk) 13:56, 5 February 2012 (UTC)
