Hello everyone!
I just wanted to ask if I can create a group at vk.com (It's some kind of facebook, but russian)
This site is very popular in my contry, so creating this group may attract many people to Tuxemon project.

Great job! One thing I'd like to mention is that the source code is actually under the GNU GPL license, not Public Domain, although some users have donated some Public Domain stuff. But great job with the page and getting the word out! I'd love to see us get a page on Facebook, too.

Thanks!
Talking about "Public domain"
Did you use google translate? I'm not sure what "public domain" means, but when I wrote this in russian, I meant that everyone can read, edit and use source code.

Public Domain means a works is available for anyone to use without restriction. No person or entity has any claim to things in Public Domain, nor do they have any more rights to them than anyone else. It's an English legal concept that America has inherited and not all countries have it.

The GNU GPL is a specific Open Source License. There are certain restrictions to using things that are licensed under the GPL. Here's a link to the wiki page for the GPL: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GNU_Gener … ic_License
