    your writeup could simply consist of three equal length quotes from three different sources and this would be okay These figures are reckoned in total over the length of your article Weird cases Translations In order to node a translation you will need to get the permission of both the original author AND the translator In the case of Public Domain works such as the Bible you will find that specific translations such as the New International Version still fall under copyright In the case of a translation you made yourself you will still need to get the permission of the author whose work you translated Press releases On E2 we count press releases as copyrighted content Public speeches Quotes from public addresses or speeches by public figures are usually Public Domain although specific instantiations such as a newspaper transcript of a public speech may be copyrighted Musical notation chords chord progressions If you quote some music and the music is copyrighted then this should be considered a quote from the copyrighted source For the purposes of word counts we reckon one chord one word in chord progressions and one bar one word in tabulature Illegal sources e g lyric quotes from an illegal bootleg concert recording illegal documents These aren t allowed Lists and statistics e g a list of an actor s film roles from the Internet Movie Database Straightforward lists of facts such as filmographies discographies or the list of a performer s roles are not considered copyright protected However more complex material such as derived sports statistics may represent intellectual property and thus be copyrighted For example the schedule of this year s football games isn t protected but a compilation of the longest touchdown passes in history would probably be unless you compiled it yourself Citations from multiple versions of the same work e g lyrics from various cover versions of the same song Different copyright registration different work Each separately published song gets its own 250 word limit Recipes Under U S copyright law Mere listings of ingredients as in recipes formulas compounds or prescriptions are not subject to copyright protection However when a recipe or formula is accompanied by substantial literary expression in the form of an explanation or directions or when there is a combination of recipes as in a cookbook there may be a basis for copyright protection Copyright Salvage Team CST Group is a usergroup formed in August 2003 to vet new and existing writeups for copyright compliance You can request a CST review on any writeup of yours by sending a msg to Content Salvage If your writeup doesn t meet E2 s requirements the CST will offer advice to help you get there If this process fails your writeup will be deleted If the process succeeds you ll be allowed to add a CST Approved tag to your writeup You can also request CST review on any other writeup old or new I followed all of these guidelines

  • Adding Public Domain Materials to Everything2 - Everything2.com
    titles that might be used in other texts If a chapter proves too long for a node Opinions vary on how long is too long We advise using sensible judgement break them up but title these sections as simply or contructively as possible ie There she blows 1 and there she blows 1 part 2 When noding plays it is advised to break Acts and scenes down using a Upper Case Roman Numeral for an Act and lower case roman numeral for a scene Navigation Each sectioned node or chapter must have a link to the previous and next node in the series and the title page A citation of source or explanation of what the chapter is is also encouraged When putting navigation in a node consider having these at both the bottom and top to facilitate readers moving around Remember readers may come across individual chapters randomly or from a softlink so point them in the right direction You might also want to warn readers of long chapters or if you are still in the process of noding or explicating a work I usually sort my navigation with pipe link s at the top and bottom of writeup On the title page I might first link to the author then to another work by them and finally to the first chapter Following I link to the previous chapter then the title page then to the next chapter For example this node might be part of the Everything2 Help as part of the More section so a navigation might help previous help document back to the help next document I would put a Hard Rule after the navigation if at the top of the node or one before if at the bottom of a node See The Scarecrow of Oz or The Book of the Damned for more navigation examples When noding collections of poetry it would be best to apply the same methods of navigation reproduce in the same order as in the collection and provide navigation from each poem to the next in the series Formatting and linking When formatting sections chapters or poems take care to use proper E2 HTML don t just dump raw text Use paragraph tags Consider using BLOCKQUOTE for white space which adds to ease of reading large chunks of text Check for EMphasis Italics and STRONG Bold in the text Also check for songs poetry and quotations and format accordingly Look for elements to explicate by footnote or under another node or at the least hardlinked These may include Epigrams a turn of phrase themes influence on later works or other artists famous characters quotations in jokes plot dynamics obscure words The pipe link is a useful E2 feature for translating or commenting on these elements A main motive for including E texts here is integration with the rest of the database how it connects how people find it where else it takes them Public Domain works noded with no links

  • Uses for Empty Nodes or Nodeshells - Everything2.com
    of course the shells were particularily useless windows error codes etc or offensive but hasn t that always been the guideline I don t think the signal to noise ratio has anything to do with it nodeshells don t improve your numbers or damage the functionality of the database so why does nodeshell creation vs writeup creation enter into it Maybe I m just in full on pacifist hippie mode but nodeshells strike me as the least useful thing in the database to be expending time and thought eradicating or culling There are exceptions but I don t think nodeshells are the non content that they re purported to be Potential content is more accurate but don t you ever run across a nodeshell and go No one could possibly fill this to any degree of satisfaction It stays as is Which is why I disagree with the nodeshelling as art being a dead link a casual observer may be interested and sign up to fill the shell or nodeshelling as commentary being vandalism especially since e2 offers no form of rebuttal outside of nodeshells and soft links Bah I m ranting I think my point is nodeshells are as valid contentwise as writeups From an editorial standpoint they should be treated as such Does this offer content Does this inspire content Does this detract from the functionality and readability of the database Does this facilitate my e2 experience If your answer is yes yes no or yes respectively then why delete it Oftentimes I will find a node through a nodeshell that I wouldn t have found except through random nodes And that s a great thing To me it s like nodeshells are the pieces of thoughts I have before having a complete thought Without them my thought
