I'd say 4
At the end of the month, hopefully RU will have taken some definitive action on older content not under the normal license. If not, then 1 seems best.


No later than the end of this month. SCP-RU is very nearly compliant and we should take our next step if those final moves towards compliance are not taken.

Whether you like it or not, history is on our side. We will bury you!

1. We move RU from the official branches lists on the main page and link pages to unofficial branches, remove their hub and move their content to the Others Hub.

At some point there will be a more detailed post from our licensing team, but as we've detailed here SCP-RU has some of its content labeled as CC-by-NC. All content which is derivative or related to the SCP Foundation and the surrounding universe is CC-by-SA.

These licenses are not compatible. Half of the branches have already delisted SCP-RU. Until the incorrectly labeled content is fixed we should not be linking to their site in an official capacity.

Previously to this, SCP-RU had been using the CC-by-NC license on their site. We had several of our community members discover this individually over the years and try to work with SCP-RU to fix the problem over the years, but this never went anywhere.

Then the SCP-RU administration asked the SCP-EN staff to enforce their incorrect license on people making YouTube videos. This alerted the entirety of the SCP-EN staff to this licensing problem.

This caused the issue to come to a head. Since we have been enforcing the license of the SCP Foundation to make sure online shops and content creators are correctly attributing their materials, we were obligated to take immediate action or risk losing the legitimacy to enforce our license entirely.

SCP-RU has almost solved the problem. They have fixed the license of their site, and not allowed for any future content to use the CC-by-NC license. However, they seem to be unsure about changing the license on the older material. What needs to be done is for the license to be corrected, not changed, since all of the content was always CC-by-SA.

I don't think we need to delete their hub, we can blank it and restore the content once the SCP-RU no longer has license violations, whenever that may be.

Whether you like it or not, history is on our side. We will bury you!

I already though of this, but as you said, it doesn't check wether the page exists in other branches. As lots of pages will not exist in other branches, users would stop using it, because they usually end up on a non existing page.

Here's a thingy built on pure Wikidot. Dumb as bricks, doesn't check whether this page exists, just assumes it's there. Since we tend to keep URLs intact for compatibility, it works fine with translated articles.
Basically, it takes the current page name and appends it to the site URL.

[[module ListPages range="." limit="1" pagetype="*"]]
[[a href="*"]]en[[/a]]


But 1. seems to be the proper choice. I hate to see this happening but licence breaching is a really serious concern.

My main vote is 4, but in case we had to make some action, im for 1.

As you may have noticed, the EN wiki doesn't regard the Russian branch official anymore, for licensing issues.

We now have to decide how the International Translation Archive handles this issue.

I see the following possibilities:

  1. We move RU from the official branches lists on the main page and link pages to unofficial branches, remove their hub and move their content to the Others Hub.
  2. Like 1. but we keep their hub.
  3. We do nothing.
  4. We wait for some time and decide then.

Everybody may discuss, but as this is a sensitive matter, I think only Primary Contacts should vote.

Weeklong on next incident imo.

I'm totally in favour of preventive ban in case the guy shows up. He clearly doesn't care, so yeah, no mercy.

Today, user "The OG Jack Boyo - EN" (jackthegameking#1597) has been officially warned for the following: Show image

The user remained silent for a few hours until this (highlighted more importand sections):

tl;dr: The user was warned first, than kicked. No further action taken so far.

Suggesting ban in case of misbehaviour in the near future, without giving them the chance to fool anybody.
