"If you have a good idea, don't convince others.
Have them copy you instead!"
That is the slogan and catchphrase of this domain. It is intended to have many possible meanings, depending on how it is said.
I chose this license to enforce openness - not just of what I've created, but of all derivative content. I want this project to keep growing, even after I'm no longer capable of working on it, and BY-SA allows for that by ensuring any use of my content is a take-and-give relationship.
Under a less restrictive license such as CC BY, others would be free to use WaxVerse without opening up any additions they make for use by others. It's also an issue of consistency - if anything is labeled as part of the CDFU, it will automatically be known that the same license is in effect for the entire production, instead of just the material which inspired it.
"They want their work to be totally "free" for any type of use
whatsoever and they want other people to agree to do the same in order to use
-Clarence Simpson on BY-SA
Society seems to have forgotten that all art is derivative, and ideas are intertwined; not these discrete things that suddenly pop into existence. However, the legal system is built around that false concept, and as such, we'll have to play along. Fair Use is regarded as something that doesn't exist, and as far as I am concerned, it therefore doesn't.
In creating all CDFU content, I have employed the following principles, and I encourage you to do the same:
You may have noticed that, despite my calls for collaboration, this website is not a wiki. The reason for that is this is my personal domain, and the content on it is my personal edition of the Ultraverse. It's also coded for speed, using hand-typed PHP and HTML, and having wiki software on top of that might reduce swiftness. I also do not care to deal with community politics. Anyone who wants to create their own Waxy Ultraverse, editable or not, is welcome to, and anyone who dislikes another's version can spin it off and make it better. But, this one is mine, and I rather like it.
If you have further unanswered questions about the way I do things, or why the project turned out how it did, feel free to ask me about it.
