  • # Be able to not have default licenses
  • This is related to being able to pick a default per category, but what I'd actually like is the option to not have the License filled-in at all, and force me to explicitly pick it for each post. That is, each time I write something I want to be mindful about what permissions I want to give and what to reserve, and it may be different depending on what I'm writing about and how much effort was involved in making it. But sometimes I have forgotten to change the license before posting and ended up with the default. So if I could have the system force me to make an explicit choice I'd probably turn that on.
  • (Of course it makes perfect sense to have usage of default licenses be on by default. This is just for weirdos like me who might pick something different each time depending on what fits my fancy at the time.)

# Be able to not have default licenses

This is related to being able to pick a default per category, but what I'd actually like is the option to not have the License filled-in at all, and force me to explicitly pick it for each post. That is, each time I write something I want to be mindful about what permissions I want to give and what to reserve, and it may be different depending on what I'm writing about and how much effort was involved in making it. But sometimes I have forgotten to change the license before posting and ended up with the default. So if I could have the system force me to make an explicit choice I'd probably turn that on.
