From Rosetta Code

Welcome to Rosetta Code! I'm Mike, and I noticed you created an account.

Some quick things you should be aware of:

Template:Mylang Helps you show what languages you're familiar with, and helps us become aware of skills with languages we haven't seen.
Category:Unimplemented tasks by language A place to find tasks missing solutions in various languages.
Blogs, twitter, facebook... We have them, and are interested in yours.
Special:Webchat Logs you into #rosettacode on the Freenode IRC channel. Not usually the most active communications medium, but occasionally helpful. It's logged at
Rosetta Code:Village Pump A general Q/A and discussion area.
Rosetta Code:Finances For most of Rosetta Code's history, expenses have been paid out of my pocket. I can't afford that much longer, and so you can see the state of Rosetta Code's finances, and how you may help. If you enjoy or are excited about the site, please consider reading through it.

Sorry for the boilerplate; it can be a bit difficult giving an individual greeting to each person. If you post information about your technical interests and background, I'll probably read it. If you already have put that kind of information on your user page, I probably already have; I'm always interested in how people do and can benefit from Rosetta Code. --Michael Mol 21:51, 2 June 2010 (UTC)


Hi Jason and welcome.
I noted your comment "Any code I release here can be used by anyone for any purpose, but I don't recommend it.", and would just like to say that we welcome contributions, and when you edit a page you will see info at the bottom on the license it is accepted under. You had the good sense to get a user account on Rosetta Code so must be interested in programming and I suspect your code either isn't useless or will get better real soon :-)

Have fun, --Paddy3118 05:04, 3 June 2010 (UTC)

I suspect that was just there to say that their contributions are available under a more liberal license (something I value and do myself) and the usual »use at your own risk«. I doubt it was meant to subvert RC's licensing policy. —Johannes Rössel 20:35, 3 June 2010 (UTC)

That's precisely my intent --- the licensing guidelines for RC mentioned that it was okay to dual-license the code, and I intended this as an alternate license. The "but I don't recommend it" was just a tongue-in-cheek disclaimer of liability; obviously, if I'm willing to put my code up in public, I think it's unlikely to bring the whole interwebs to a screaming halt.


As I remarked in IRC:
21:35 <@shortcircuit> Wow. Looks like someone read the copyright policy. :)

I hope you don't mind if I take that as a compliment.  :) JasonFruit

I don't mind at all. :) --Michael Mol 02:16, 10 June 2010 (UTC)
