 What is the license agreement on the contents of WikiQueer?
- WikiQueer articles are all open content and are covered by the Creative Commons Attribution-Sharealike 3.0 Unported License (CC-BY-SA) and in most cases the GNU Free Documentation License (GFDL). See WikiQueer:Copyrights.
 May I mirror entire sections of the WikiQueer to my site? How much may I quote?
- You may mirror or quote as much as you wish, as long as you maintain the text under the CC-BY-SA or GNU Free Documentation License. See WikiQueer:Copyrights.
 If I link a word from my site to WikiQueer, am I required to use the GNU FDL for my site?
- No. Linking is not an act regulated by copyright, so the CC-BY-SA and GNU FDL does not apply.
 What if I use a small quote (three or four sentences)?
- No, since it is covered by the fair use doctrine.
 What if I quote entire articles?
- Check with your lawyer, or just put the site under the CC-BY-SA or GNU FDL. However, WikiQueerians try to assume good faith, so minor copyright violations are unlikely to result in a lawsuit.
 How do I cite a WikiQueer article in a paper?
- Cite it as you would any other web page in accordance with the normal citation practice the publication you are submitting the paper to follows. Citing the individual authors is not necessary, but you should at least include the date on which you retrieved the article (and ideally the full timestamp from the history).
- Automatically generated citations in several standard styles are available through the "Cite this article" link in the toolbox.
- See WikiQueer:Citing WikiQueer
 What should I do when I find a factual error in WikiQueer?
- You should correct it. (See WikiQueer:Contributing FAQ.) WikiQueer is written by volunteers who believe knowledge should be free for everyone, and the community is always ready to welcome new volunteers.
- Because WikiQueer is an all-volunteer project that anyone can edit, errors or omissions can and do creep in. This should be kept in mind when reading; the very nature of WikiQueer means it should not be trusted completely. Articles frequently contain citations of authoritative works where a reader can verify the information found.
 Why do I see commercial ads at WikiQueer?
- WikiQueer is funded by donations and does not display advertisements on articles. If you see ads then something at your end must be placing them. Some browser extensions or plugins may do it. A plugin called Codec-C is known to do it although it is marketed as needed to play videos. Your computer may be infected with malware. Consider anti-malware software.
