Platform: Website (today Chromium on Manjaro Linux)
new to the site, mostly to be able to discuss/contribute the occasional ID I suppose, but uploaded two observations with an image just to earn credit to be able to message an observer who’s email address I lost.
Anyway: On upload, no questions about licensing were asked. Turns out the default license is CC-NC-ND or some such. ND sucks big time for a default license, but that’s beside the point. So I’m off into my account settings to see if I can change the license settings. Sure enough, so changed everything to CC0 - the only license that actually truly allows other people to do useful stuff with your work.
Ticked all the boxes for “update license on existing images/obs/whatever” and saved the settings
No such luck. Observations and images are still presented as CC-NC-ND or whatever.
Tried again. Same (non) result.
So there it is: The tick boxes for “update existing” under the licenses seem to be disfunctional.
P.S. Hmmm … on review, licenses now show CC-BY-NC … pretty sure I read ND in it before (as it upset me). Issue might be that the requested CC0 is substituted by BY-NC ?? Confused …
