Implementation Issues

Licence agreement on the web site

The Website should allow users to voluntarily agree to new license. Design allows you to click yes, or if you disagree a further page explaining the position and asking to reconsider as there may be a requirement to ultimately remove the users data. This will help stop people accidentally clicking 'no'. Sign up page now states you agree to license your changes under both CCBYSA and also ODbL.

  • As much as I think more “yes” answers would be beneficial, in the interest of reducing bias, if the “no” vote gets an “are you sure?” page, the “yes” vote should too. The page should summarise again what is being agreed to, and give the chance to back out of it. —Sward 13:32, 28 February 2009 (UTC)
    • Why are you interested in "reducing bias"? We need it to be biased. The cost of people not signing is huge portions of OSM having to be deleted. --Rjmunro 12:47, 17 March 2009 (UTC)
