    Hello everyone!

    Just a reminder to please be sure and always give proper attribution when copying and pasting the work of another person or news organization. Copyright laws and regulations regarding fair use and open source documentation must be obeyed. Please do not copy entire articles unless permission is granted from the author and or the parent site.

    List the entire URL and if using "imbeds" please also go ahead and separately list the URL anyway (in case the imbed fails we still have the proper attribution in place).

    Thanks!

    John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

    Psalm 19:14 Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O LORD, my strength, and my redeemer.

      Too many articles still being put up without proper attribution folks. Please use full URL's when posting the work of another. Fair use does not always apply and we must give credit especially where copyrighted material is used.

          The work of having to verify imbedded links is time consuming and frankly folks, this is becoming a major problem for some posters.

              Having to bump this thread - again.

              Looking up URL's takes more time than y'all may think. Original postings to the web sometimes get buried under an avalanche of links upon links to who knows where. If we can't find a proper attribution to copied text within the body of a post, the post (or thread) may be deleted without explanation.

              Hopefully you know who you are .............and the rest of you fine folks, carry on! You're doing great!

                  Imbeds only do not qualify as proper attribution.

                  Folks, posts with quotes and links to other sites are being deleted that don't have the full URL listed.

                  We welcome everyone's input, but we are insisting that adherence to the policy of proper attribution be complied with completely.

                    Folks we have been experiencing another resurgence of posts with "imbeds" being used instead of full URL's.

                    This is no small matter. Imbeds don't always work and improperly attributed posts can put the board in jeopardy for a host of legal reasons.

                    At the discretion of the Mod Team, any post utilizing only an imbed as attribution will be edited for lack of proper content or deleted altogether.

                    Please don't put the Mod Team in the position of having to carve up posts to keep us out of legal trouble.

                    This is what we're looking for - http://rr-bb.com/showthread.php?1704...27#post2417327

                    This is not what we're wanting to see all by itself - here
