Editing at Project Robotica

To grow the commons of free knowledge and free culture, all users editing or otherwise contributing to Project Robotica agree to grant broad permissions to the general public to re-distribute and re-use their contributions freely for any purpose, including commercial use, in accordance with the CC BY-SA license. Such use is allowed where attribution is given and the same freedom to re-use and re-distribute applies to any derivative works of the contributions.

Discussions and Chat

Content submitted to discussions or chat are not licensed under the CC BY-SA licenses. As set forth in our Terms of Use that content is subject to a separate license grant to Project Robotica (only) which allows Project Robotica to utilize such content as it sees fit.

Importing Text

If you want to provide contributions in which you do not own or control the copyright, you may only do so if you originally received such contributions under terms that are compatible with the license used on Project Robotica.

If you import text under a compatible license which requires attribution, you must, in a reasonable fashion (including by one of the attribution methods described below), credit the author(s). Where such credit is commonly given through page histories (such as copying within Project Robotica), it is sufficient to give attribution in the edit summary, which is recorded in the page history, when importing the text.


As a contributor, you agree that being attributed in any of the following fashions satisfies the attribution requirements of the license applicable to your contribution: a) attribution through a hyperlink (where possible) or URL to the article or articles you contributed to, b) attribution through 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) attribution through a list of all authors. Any list of authors may be filtered to exclude very small or irrelevant contributions.

Non-text Files

Freely licensed or public domain images are strongly preferred on Project Robotica.

Non-text media on Project Robotica should not be assumed to be available under the same license as the text. Please view the media description page for details about the license of any specific media file. If you are uploading files to Project Robotica, you should cite the source of the file, attribute the authors, and note any copyright information, where applicable.

Using Project Robotica Content

It is your responsibility to understand and adhere to that license that applies to your use of text. Text from external sources may attach additional attribution requirements to the work beyond what is described on this page.

When re-using Project Robotica text that has been posted subject to a Creative Commons license, you must provide attribution to the authors using one of the attribution methods described in the section above titled “Attribution.”

This article uses material from the “FTC:About” article at Project Robotica and is licensed under the Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike License.

Off-wiki content (for example, emails, IRC chats, off-wiki forums, etc) should not be assumed to be released under this license if this is not explicitly stated.


These licensing terms are not to be modified. If there is any inconsistency between these terms and any translation into other languages, the English language version takes precedence. Links will be added above to any unofficial translations.
