    Can we use info that is GFDL in content and share it openly?

    So I think I am going to make a Wheel of Time info module and I am thinking about using info off of the fandom wiki and it falls under the GNU Free Documentation License (GFDL). Can I share this on the forge?

    So... it looks like the material there on that site is actually covered by

    However a lot of the content on that site is actually copyright material belong to Robert Jordan (or his estate) or his publisher.

    If the material is truly original work not by Robert Jordan and you abide by the terms of the CC BY-SA license then I think you would be fine.
