Project:Reusing Text From The Lost Jewel
If you want to use The Lost Jewel's text materials in your own books/articles/web sites or other publications, you can generally do so, but you must comply with one of the licenses that the site's text is licensed under. Many of the media files on The Lost Jewel are also reusable. Each media file has its own licensing statement which must be verified, and reuse of any media file must comply with its licensing.
- To re-distribute a text page in any form, provide credit to the authors either by including a) a hyperlink (where possible) or URL to the page or pages you are re-using, b) a hyperlink (where possible) or URL to an alternative, stable online copy which is freely accessible, which conforms with the license, and which provides credit to the authors in a manner equivalent to the credit given on this website, or c) a list of all authors. (Any list of authors may be filtered to exclude very small or irrelevant contributions.) This applies to text developed by the The Lost Jewel Project community. Text from external sources may attach additional attribution requirements to the work, which should be indicated on an article's face or on its talk page. For example, a page may have a banner or other notation indicating that some or all of its content was originally published somewhere else. Where such notations are visible in the page itself, they should generally be preserved by re-users.

- If you make modifications or additions, you must indicate in a reasonable fashion that the original work has been modified. If you are re-using the page in a wiki, for example, indicating this in the page history is sufficient.
