Hello and Thank you for taking the time to read this!
I want to preface that this is to all Temple Members, but many of you already do what is to be discussed herein! I will also be a brief as possible. The point or focus of this discussion is to be sure we are all on the same page (myself and admins included). We share many things here and I want to state a simple point:
When you post an article/discussion/blog/photo et all that is not your original work, PLEASE CITE THE AUTHOR/OWNER AND A LINK TO THE SOURCE OF YOUR INFORMATION!
I do my best and sometimes we may forget but understand that:
PHOTOS: We have already a limit to 2 that must be approved because of copyright violations a year of so back. At one time we were able to post 5. Now I know many times the URL may read a long number or if you save the photo but at least you did your best. Sometimes art or images are hard to find the artist or owner.
WRITTEN WORK: All information must now have the author's name and if possible a link to the source. If you are given the article without this information, then please do not post it. I am not wanting to sound mean, but there are laws in ever country that protect copyright material. If the work was yours-and many of you are authors-then you would want respect. Most do not mind the share WITH THEIR NAME AND LINK TO SOURCE!!! So please let us respect the written work of others as you would want respect for something of yours!
VIDEOS: Videos are pretty easy to share are they require embedded code or the like BUT be sure that the video material is not violating copyright as some youtube people make a video but do violate copyright.
If new posts should have no credit to the author or link then we may have to have discussions approved as photos and we really do not want to do that. Or delete them. This takes extra time on us and your material will not be shared.
Thank you to everyone for your help in this matter and for your time!
