For Contributors

Anything that you contribute to the site (and is accepted by the site editors) will be published here under the same CC BY 4.0 license as the rest of the site. This will get your name (and optionally a link to your website) added to this site’s list of contributors.

Some content submissions result in a new page listing “submitted by” a certain contributor. Otherwise, in general, this site does not track the specific authorship of specific content in a granular way; for legal purposes the “Author” of the entire site is the full list of contributors.
