I wanted to port the oldWelcomeHome Ace3 tutorial over to Wowpedia.. which I did, partially.
I'm still a wiki noob, and went ahead and created that page .. but I actually completely f*cked up with with the licenses.
Considering that Curse own's both sites... i don't think it's a problem.
Also who evertold you the 2 are incompatible is prolly messing with you.
In the Human-Readable versions you linked, the only real difference is the "Noncommercial You may not use this work for commercial purposes." clause and ... well your not using it as a source of profit or commercial operations there shouldn't be a problem.
Considering that it's a wiki, and by use of said wiki (Registration TOS) all contributions are licenced to "WoWAce" (Now owned by Curse Inc) under the 2.5 version and that information is being translated to another resource with in the Curse Inc domain of authority under the 3.0 version. Really all you need is a Curse Level Admin to bless the transition, IMO.
However i'd hop on IRC and ask the blessing of the origional author of that page and a curse level admin.
Try to get permission from all of the editors of that WowAce page, which'd sidestep the wiki's license (CC BY-NC-SA 2.5)
Just write a new tutorial for getting started with Ace3
If the work is properly attributed, and it's not used for commercial purposes, I'd just need to make sure that Wowpedia is not re-using the content in a way that violates the first two, and also fill the "share alike clause."
To get permission for copying the content, as long as "they" are okay with relicensing it by "CC BY-SA 3.0"
I found out that Kaelten is the original author of the Ace2/3 tutorial
So, I decided to just follow OrionShock's advice, and requested Kaelten's permission on IRC,
and he granted it, but requested that the Wowpedia page would link/attribute to the original WowAce wiki
So, I asked for help on #wowpedia, and pcj copied/imported the edit history over, from:
Ace2 has been dead for longer than Wowpedia has existed. I'd recommend deleting it, or at least adding a large warning to the top stating that the entire page is referring to libraries that do not work and will never work again.
