Why two non-identical English language "Copyleft" pages?

Any reason not to merge en:Wikitravel:Copyleft into Shared:Copyleft then redirect the former to the latter? ~ 203.189.134.3 08:48, 10 October 2007 (EDT)

Nope, go ahead. Jpatokal 11:36, 11 October 2007 (EDT)

Compatible licences

I just added a "Compatible licences" section. Should anything else be listed? ~ 203.189.134.3 09:47, 10 October 2007 (EDT)

What about "PD" - Public Domain - ? ~ 202.71.45.37 08:02, 11 October 2007 (EDT)

PD isn't really a "license", because it's entirely unconditional. But yes, we should mention that PD works are allowed. Jpatokal 11:36, 11 October 2007 (EDT)

asking permission to use forum reply at Wikitravel

I have received a valuable knowledge from other person on a forum/blog outside Wikitravel. Does someone have a template for a message asking whether pieces of that text can be used at Wikitravel? And I think this a good question for our FAQ here. --DenisYurkin 08:31, 26 January 2008 (EST)

I have the following text--how good is it for the above purpose?
Hi (person name).
Do you mind if I use some pieces of your post (its URL) to contribute to an article on Rome at Wikitravel, a free online travel guide written and edited entirely by travelers from around the globe?
The current edition of the article I am going to update is here: http://wikitravel.org/en/Rome#Eat.
