Usage

This template is used to confirm that a copyright owner has granted permission for their work to be used on Wikipedia under a free license. It should be added to the top section of the article's Talk page using the following syntax:

{{ConfirmationOTRS|source=source|otrs=TicketNumber|license=license}}
{{ConfirmationOTRS|source=source|otrs=TicketNumber|note=optional comment to appear after the ticket number}}
  • source is the source of the article (which may or may not be a URL).
  • otrs is the ticket number on OTRS under which verification of permission was received.
  • license is the license under which the material is released. The following options are permitted:
    • Released into the public domain:
      • pd, cc0, Public domain, public domain
    • Attribution-required
      • attribution
    • Released under CC BY-3.0
      • cc-by-3.0
    • Released under CC BY-4.0
      • cc-by-4.0
    • Released under CC BY-SA-3.0
      • cc, cc3, cc-by-sa, cc-by-sa-3.0
    • Dual licensed under CC BY-SA.3.0 and the GFDL
      • gfdl, dual, d, both
    • Released under GFDL only prior to November 1, 2008
      • g
        • This license should not be used for text released on or after November 1, 2008, as our licensing migration forbid single licensing of text under GFDL from that date.
    • Any other value, including missing, defaults to the Creative Commons Attribution/Share-Alike license.
  • note is an additional, optional parameter which includes more information within the box. It may be useful, for example, to note if the licensing allows or does not allow importing additional information from the source. See Talk:Human Frontier Science Program for example in use.
  • removed=1 - if only old revisions of the article make use of this text because it is outdated, deemed too promotional for use, etc., then please add removed=1 to the template. (We still want to have a record of the statement of permission, but we don't want to imply that it is currently a part of the text.)

DO NOT USE THIS TEMPLATE if there is no OTRS ticket to associate with it.

This template adds pages to Category:Items with OTRS permission confirmed.
