Default Reposts of News Stories


Please don't repost news stories verbatim on the web site - either in news stories or posts. Instead use the first paragraph and provide a link to the story, or write your own summary and provide a link to the story.

If you see someone doing this - please moderate their posts and explain that reposting verbatim is a copyright issue and causes problems for us.

This rule has been updated. Please see below for more detail and clarification to the original rule above.

This is effective site-wide immediately: All new threads posted which provide links to external news stories must include a link to the story and a snippet of the beginning of the article. Just the link will not comply. Provide at the most the first paragraph or enough to summarize the article. The thread subject should also effectively title the article being linked to.

Full articles, link(s) or not, are not permitted unless the author or site owner has provided permission to copy copyrighted material. Assume any content taken from someone else's website is copyrighted and not re-publishable in full. Any thread not following these guidelines will be deleted, with or without question, upon discovery.

If you have any questions please post a thread in the Forums Administration forum.
To contact me please use the forum email function as I do not accept Private Messages unless you're on my contact list.

All rules and guidelines are covered in this forum. These are required reading for new members and all existing should follow for any updates.
