A 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!

Dwindling Gravitas29 Mar 2017 3:56 a.m. PST

C … definitely C

Personal logo Bashytubits Supporting Member of TMP29 Mar 2017 4:04 a.m. PST

The Cs have spoken.

blacksoilbill29 Mar 2017 4:38 a.m. PST

C. Courteous, considerate!

arthur181529 Mar 2017 5:05 a.m. PST

C is my first choice, but B would suffice.

A 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.

Personal logo Dentatus Sponsoring Member of TMP Fezian29 Mar 2017 5:16 a.m. PST


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.

vtsaogames29 Mar 2017 6:25 a.m. PST

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.

nazrat29 Mar 2017 7:02 a.m. PST

D. Grey box with no info. 8)=

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.

Regards Ken

wrgmr129 Mar 2017 8:45 a.m. PST

C it's the honerable thing to do.

GarrisonMiniatures29 Mar 2017 9:22 a.m. PST


Weasel29 Mar 2017 9:58 a.m. PST

Link back to the source and make it clear its not your stuff.

Jakar Nilson29 Mar 2017 11:13 a.m. PST


Giles the Zog29 Mar 2017 11:19 a.m. PST

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.

Personal logo etotheipi Sponsoring Member of TMP29 Mar 2017 11:31 a.m. PST

C + guinness

John Leahy29 Mar 2017 11:51 a.m. PST

Yep C.

Gunfreak Supporting Member of TMP29 Mar 2017 12:36 p.m. PST

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.

B or C or E – a link at least

Legion 429 Mar 2017 3:25 p.m. PST

C … please …

KSmyth29 Mar 2017 4:29 p.m. PST

C, thanks very much

Oiler7229 Mar 2017 7:44 p.m. PST

I would say B or C…I try as much as possible to give credit when I'm referencing a google pic or another persons work…

War Panda30 Mar 2017 7:53 p.m. PST

C…if 'c' stands for a "Crap load of Cash"

Old Contemptibles Supporting Member of TMP30 Mar 2017 11:20 p.m. PST


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

RogerC31 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.

Only share a portion of what is in the post so people still have a reason to visit the site and provide a link.

von Schwartz27 Aug 2020 6:21 p.m. PST

Just a nice Laurel, and hearty handshake.

Mad Guru Supporting Member of TMP29 Aug 2020 1:45 p.m. PST

C is good.
