No change to Author:Jeff Berryman[edit]

I'm copying an exchange from my (Jeff Ogden, W163) talk page to make it more likely that others interested in the Author:Jeff Berryman page or The Paging Game page will see it. --Jeff Ogden, W163 (talk) 04:03, 13 November 2012 (UTC)

quoted from William Maury Morris II's talk page:

Earlier today you made a change to the Author:Jeff Berryman page that I created earlier in the day. The edit summary for your change read, "1974 = LEGAL ? ????????????????????". That is a little too cryptic for me. What are you asking or what point are you trying to make? --Jeff Ogden, W163 (talk) 03:15, 13 November 2012 (UTC)

quoted from my (Jeff Ogden, W163) talk page:

Hello, W163. 1st, the only "change" I made was add a space. I wrote nothing and did nothing to the contents. Because we have many vandals, and some I have spotted, I wondered about the date of 1974 being okay for material posted. It's usually around 1923 that works are allowed. I posted about "Legal" with question marks so that administrators would see that and they would remove the material if it was not legal. I am familiar with most names on en.ws and was not familiar with the W163 when I saw the work posted. —William Maury Morris IITalk 03:37, 13 November 2012 (UTC)
I've been contributing to Wikipedia since 2010, but this is my first contribution to Wikisource. The Paging Game article was written by Author:Jeff Berryman in 1974, but that shouldn't pose a problem because he has placed the article into the Public Domain. --Jeff Ogden, W163 (talk) 03:51, 13 November 2012 (UTC)

Complete textinfo, demonstrate that the work is in the public domain[edit]

To be able to host this work, we need evidence that the work is in the public domain. Means of doing this are to point to a source on the web, where it clearly demonstrates that the author put the work onto the web AND put the work into the public domain, OR, if this is not possible, then we are going to need to have the author follow the OTRS process (see Commons:Commons:OTRS) and adapt the links to point to the work at English Wikisource. — billinghurst sDrewth 11:24, 13 November 2012 (UTC)

I will fill in the Textinfo template. The Annotations section at the end of The Paging Game includes the following statements:
Jeff Berryman has said that he considers the article to be in the public domain and so, as far as he is concerned, anybody can publish it anywhere they want. A discussion in the MTS Archive web site includes more information about the article, where and why it was written.
Following the link to the MTS Archive Web site will bring you to an e-mail message from Jeff Berryman, the author of the article, in which he says that the article is in the Public Domain. Please, let me know if there is something more I need to do. --Jeff Ogden (W163) (talk) 16:23, 13 November 2012 (UTC)
