However, we do want to give credit where credit is due. If you find an article, post, or anything created by someone else and want to copy it to us instead of paraphrase, here is what we ask you to do.
You may copy the content to our site if you do the following things:
- Include the link to the original content in this format: Source: http://whatever the link is this can be at the bottom or top of the post, but MUST be there.
- Make sure the title is front page acceptable. (nothing NSFW and nothing too long and non descriptive) Using the title of the game it is for or the subject of the content is encouraged: I.E. World of Warcraft Releases 726361th patch!
- Try to include any pictures and or video that is relevant, especially any that is in the original content itself. This helps us promote the post on the front page, and its just prettier. Single links to resources are hard to have conversations about, since we have to go back and forth without the ability to quote and use forum functionality.
- Make sure the formatting is right or it is just a waste of space.
- Make sure to write tags in the box below the submit button to the left. Tags help Google find the article and anyone searching on this forum. Tags are separated by commas I.E. sourced content, cool, awesome pics,
- Feel free to add your take on the article, post, news, whatever, in your post. Your opinion counts too.
