Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

Stack Exchange Data Explorer queries are licensed under cc-wiki with attribution required, like user contributions on normal sites. Yet query pages on SEDE do not have any user attribution whatsoever. Queries should link to their author's profile, like posts and post histories do. At the moment, SE displaying SEDE queries is technically illegal.

I know what you mean in that they aren't displayed when viewing the queries themselves, but you know they are visible in the list of queries? – Jason Plank Dec 11 '11 at 1:04
@JasonPlank I know they are, and also from authors' profiles. But that meets neither the letter nor the spirit of the license. – Gilles Dec 11 '11 at 1:16
We're not ignoring this, it's just that Waffles is out on vacation for a bit, I'll ping him to take a look at this when he gets settled back in. – Nick Craver Dec 11 '11 at 11:27

This is now complete ... you get plenty of attribution.

The query show page shows who created the query and who last edited it.

The edit query page shows who created each revision.
