Under what license do users make their contributions on LE?

On StackExchange they use:

At this time we don't have an explicit license for user contributions. If it's something the community is interested in, we'd be happy to look into it further.

I guess it is important to define these legalese. Following into the footsteps of StackExchange or Wikipedia would seem sensible to me..

I think the type of site has a large impact on that. We already use CC by-sa at the LQ Wiki (and have for over a decade). There are pros and cons to adding a mandated license in this context.
