You really want some sort of tacit assent though. Like a checkbox or simlar that people have to check to indicate that their post is licensed under a specific license. Implicit assent is pretty weak.
You also may consider having some sort of form where users who have a login can mark their previous posts as being licensed under the MIT/X11 license in adition to whatever license they were using previously.
Thankyou. Your hint brought me to the following solution: I've modified the forums source so that theres a additional field in the users profile page where he/she can select the license under which he/she is posting his/her comments. Next to every posting there is a note regarding the license under which the posting is licensed. You can see it here: Create a user / edit profile page: http://devel.debianforum.de/forum/profile.php?mode=register&agreed=true Sample users profile information page: http://devel.debianforum.de/forum/profile.php?mode=viewprofile&u=2 Sample view posting page: http://devel.debianforum.de/forum/viewtopic.php?t=1 I think this solution is clear and so I (as the webmaster) dont have to decide which license to use; the user has to decide instead.
