    That can often be a copyright violation. And while it poses a risk for legal action, more importantly it infringes on the author's right to benefit from their intellectual property.

    If you want to quote an article, put the title of the article in the post, credit the author, quote 1 or 2 or maybe 3 paragraphs, then hyperlink to the source. DO NOT POST THE WHOLE THING.

    Hyperlinking is really easy, you just type a phrase like "Read more here..." and hyperlink it. To hyperlink, highlight the "Read more" text, click on this guy [​IMG]
    and paste the URL to it.

    Example of how to do it:

    Whiz Talks Texans
    Posted by Darren Urban on August 12, 2010 – 12:16 pm

    There was no practice this morning (and sorry, I’ll miss the afternoon workout with my brother getting married). So there wasn’t any action to speak of as coach Ken Whisenhunt had his final talk with the media before the preseason opener against Houston.

    Why does this not seem to be a problem on the P&R board where full articles are posted several times a day it seems?

    Yeah, Nidan posted a sticky at the top of the P&R forum as well as the Cards forum.

    We also need to be vigilant about enforcing fair-use laws here.

    All articles MUST be linked, and only 3-4 paragraphs, max should be copied.

    I will try to edit any paragraphs beyond that, and edit completely any unlinked articles

    What does the ASFN logo represent?

    I figured this is the best place to ask.

    What do the components of the ASFN logo represent?

    And are we ready for what?

    Thanks, Mods.

    Kinda looks like a guy reaching for a roll of toilet paper on one of those modern universal logos.
