The sea that raged no more29 Mar 2017 3:02 a.m. PST

If I visit your blog (of war), like what I see, and decide to share it on TMP or similar sites, what is the minimum you would require from me in exchange:

A) don't use my stuff
B) state clearly who created the work, or piece of information
C) as B, and include the LINK
D) do what you want, I'm not bothered
E) something else

There is so much great stuff out there!

C is my first choice, but B would suffice.

The sea that raged no more29 Mar 2017 5:06 a.m. PST

I see …Cs. I even see 'em on the High Seas

What if you don't get that sort of recognition. Do you complain to the poster or seeth inwardly?

I always try to attribute when I repost someone's glorious work and was chuffed once when the original blogger/poster reported a significant increase in his visitor totals for the month.

It doesn't take much to treat people respectfully.

C.

B at minimum.

Not too hard, right? Common courtesy.

Stryderg29 Mar 2017 5:40 a.m. PST

It's the internet, you can't really "require" anything, unless you want to get lawyers involved. And for a blog, it's probably not worth the pound of flesh they charge.

But my answer is still C, just because it's the right thing to do.

It's the internet, you can't really "require" anything,

If someone posts my stuff with no attribution, I reserve the right to break into their apartment and drink all of their beer plus any snacks needed to aid said action.

leidang29 Mar 2017 7:12 a.m. PST

C – But please if you do a whole bunch in one day consolidate them to a single post.

yarkshire gamer29 Mar 2017 7:29 a.m. PST

C but large wads of cash are equally acceptable.

B as a minimum
C out of respect.

I've had material from my blog published elsewhere, and erroneously captioned as something that the photo did not show.

Similarly, some material a friend and I posted of one of our gams, was posted without attribution.

C, this has happened to me twice i think, and both times they did a C.
And I was honoured by it.

Bunkermeister Supporting Member of TMP29 Mar 2017 12:44 p.m. PST

C is nice, but I am not going to get too worked up over it.

A

I had someone take pictures from one of my games and posted it on his blog and took all the credit for it.

RogerC Supporting Member of TMP31 Mar 2017 9:12 a.m. PST

C ideally. But I wont get upset if you don't, well not much anyway. That said would be upset if I saw what happened to Rallynow happen to me.
