Not a problem, I agree, it's good to have these things. Personally, I'd rather YOU choose which of my writings (if any) are useful for the encyclopedia, because that gives it a second set of eyes looking it over and saying "Ah, yes, this is appropriate, well written, and correct" instead of relying on my own ego to decide what that I write is good enough.
For example, three or four times recently, I've written up a list of 5 or 6 points that I think every truly brand-new person to the board should know. I think that'd be very useful information to have available easily, but I feel egotistical in the extreme submitting it as "The first thing a newbie should read".
It just confused me to see something I'd posted moments before show up again, from someone else. I think, as the owner of this board, some of the plagiarism issues may not even apply. I'm not POSITIVE, but I think that a case could be made that you have at least publishing rights to anything we write here, in so far as by writing it here, we're ASKING you to publish it.
Whether that would hold true for publishing a book or something I don't know, but I don't have a problem with this use of my text. If a way could be set up so that proper attribution was given, that would be cool, but as you say, I think it's more important that we get these things available for anyone who needs them than to worry about stroking my ego.
, happy to be part of the encyclopedia.
