I must say a huge thank you Mike for all your hard work on the wiki.. It's been quite a steep old learning curve..

The Wiki Visual Editor is a real improvement and makes the creation and editing of pages a real breeze...

Try it and love it :-D

Hi Mike, just wanted to add that I've only just looked at this thread, but have already added a few bits to the C5 section. Apart from my own project under 'Interior', I created a table under 'Safety' to list all the C5 VOSA recalls to date. Would things like that in the public domain for the public be Ok to replicate? Thinking is it would be helpful to have all these useful resources in one place. Can you let me know.

Thanks for that, great idea for the glasses case.

We welcome any relevant additions to the wiki. Copyright does require some care, we have put the wiki (and these forums) under a Creative Commons copyright, so anything that is under a compatible copyright may be replicated there, or anything that is already "in the public domain". For borderline cases where compatibility of copyright is uncertain, it would be best to include the original copyright notice (or a link) so that we can check.

It is also worth noting that in most cases it is the text, not the underlying information, that is copyright, so useful data can be "rewritten in your own words" to avoid copyright issues.
