The footer currently has cc by-sa written in small case but it should be capitalized as CC BY-SA following the style used in the official Creative Commons page, the Help Center, and one of the announcement posts.

Also, if anyone's wondering:

  • CC stands for Creative Commons.
  • BY stand for by, as in: "All of our licenses require that users provide attribution (BY) to the creator".
  • SA stands for "ShareAlike (SA), which requires adaptations of the material be released under the same license".

    Ideally, this should be changed everywhere that it is currently lowercase. This includes, at least, the image upload dialog.

    I just noticed that the footer of SEDE is still using an older revision of the footer, and has cc by-sa in lowercase.

    Area 51 still has it in lowercase as well (though that's sort of expected at this point :P).
