5e SRD talk:Feats

How can you claim all those feats are released under the SRD? Quoting WotC's site http://dnd.wizards.com/articles/features/systems-reference-document-srd

  • Why does the SRD only have one background and one feat? Why do the PC races not include all of the subraces? The goal of the SRD is to allow users to create new content, not to replicate the text of the whole game.

Also the UA feats are mixed in with the PHB feats with no way to tell them apart. These are not of equal quality or officialness.

There used to be the {{needsadmin}} template here. --WeirdoWhoever (talk) 11:41, 13 April 2017 (UTC)

Sorry about the template, but I thought this would be the fastest way to get if fixed. --WeirdoWhoever (talk) 13:04, 12 April 2017 (UTC)

Which ones? This page is not protected, so please take the initiative to clear it up. Then, we can lock it. UA feats are feats that we can list here, so please do not remove those feats. --Green Dragon (talk) 18:27, 12 April 2017 (UTC)
Actually this page is protected, it says I don't have permission to edit it. Otherwise I would've edited it myself. That's why I added the {{needsadmin}} template. Luckily UA feats are marked as (UA), so it would be easier to leave them.
Oh, and by the way, Grappler feat is released under the SRD, presumably as an example. So that can stay. --WeirdoWhoever (talk) 22:32, 12 April 2017 (UTC)
I'm the user who added the Unearthed Arcana feats and marked them as such, in case you wanted to know. I thought it would be beneficial to players who wanted easy access these extra feats created by Wizards of the Coast. I can try to make it more clear they are playtest material if you'd like. --Carcabob (talk) 22:41, 12 April 2017 (UTC)
UA feats are not the concern here, I'm concerned of PHB feats that are not supposed to be in the SRD in the first place. That's a serious copyright violation. I know that you are not the one who added them, but if you can edit this page (unlike myself), can you do me a favor of deleting those PHB feats except for Grappler? --WeirdoWhoever (talk) 22:45, 12 April 2017 (UTC)
Looks' like the changed the permissions since then. I can't edit it either. :-( --Carcabob (talk) 23:29, 12 April 2017 (UTC)
Oof, that's bad. Guess we'll just sit down and wait for admins to take care of this. --WeirdoWhoever (talk) 23:34, 12 April 2017 (UTC)
Okay, I just deleted the copyright violations. (I left the Grappler feat because that one is on the SRD.) Now you can lock up the document. --WeirdoWhoever (talk) 11:41, 13 April 2017 (UTC)

You know, we can't print the UA feats either, they are under copyright. Marasmusine (talk) 12:59, 13 April 2017 (UTC)

Oof, didn't know that. I thought we can print that one since that one's open to public via Unearthed Arcana. Thanks for reminding me. --WeirdoWhoever (talk) 14:02, 13 April 2017 (UTC)
Actually, I guess we should assume that you are right. Content that it (normally) view-able and download-able by anyone on WotC's website is normally OGC, but I cannot find this exact text so I guess its better to err on the side of caution. Lets remove those feats for now, and also anything from UA then. --Green Dragon (talk) 17:51, 13 April 2017 (UTC)
Gotcha...Sorry about that then. Marasmusine (talk) also pointed out UA isn't SRD, so it shouldn't be displayed under SRD anyway. --Carcabob (talk) 04:44, 16 April 2017 (UTC)
