Wattpad 173 Repost

This is the text of SCP-173, reposted on Wattpad by someone named SinisterMind. I sent the following PM:

Hi! I'm a staff member on the SCP Wiki by the name of Reject. I saw that you reposted SCP-173 here on Wattpad. That's fine, but because the SCP Wiki is licensed under a Creative Commons Share-Alike 3.0 license, the text of which is contained here (http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/legalcode), you need to link the SCP Wiki (http://www.scp-wiki.net/) for proper attribution. Once you do that you'll be fine. You don't need to take anything down.

Derivatives of works under the Creative Commons Share-Alike 3.0 license also inherit the license, so your post of SCP-173 is under it as well. That doesn't mean anything to you except that you need to link the SCP Wiki. And we have a guide (http://www.scp-wiki.net/licensing-guide) that you can read at your leisure. Effectively, this doesn't change anything.



Oh! I'm so sorry! I didn't realise! I apologise

But nothing appeared to have changed, so I said,

That's fine, you're far from the first person to accidentally forget to link us back. I don't see where you put the attribution; have you done that yet? You need to link SCP-173's wiki page and put a statement about the license.
