Scoutwikis were unavailable since Tuesday 29th July 2014 because of hardware failure in our server. We have now installed a new server, that will be much more powerful. FI, EN, and NL wikies were restored from backups dated 2014-07-27. However there are still some things that aren't working correctly – sorry about that. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact admins via email at Thanks!

Help:Importing articles under GFDL

From ScoutWiki, For Everyone, Everywhere involved with Scouting and Guiding...
Jump to: navigation, search
This document describes the process of importing articles from Wikipedia to ScoutWiki. Please adhere to the process or question the correctness of it.

Wikipedia is a good source also for scouting-related articles. Sometimes it's useful to import these to ScoutWiki instead of linking to Wikipedia. This can be done because both Wikipedia and ScoutWiki use the GNU Free Documentation License, ”GFDL”. However, in order to comply with the license terms and thus not be in a direct violation of the license, the authors of the article must be given appropriate credit.

The easiest way to do this is to add {{From Wikipedia}} to EITHER the article's talk page, OR the bottom of the article.

More information about the conditions of material re-usage is available at Wikipedia.
