There's a candy bar in space, but I think that's a strange place. It seems they should have saved it for a little boy's face. My teacher says that it is stars, but I still go with candy bars...Me Age 8 C9.25, Skywatcher 200N, AT6RC, Nexstar 5SE and 102GT, ETX90, C80ED, WO ZS66SD, Orion 15 X 70s, EQ5P, Meade LX-80, Nexguide, Olympus E410, Modified Canon 300D
Quote:Well... it appears that my belief in the admins on addressing the concerns of sourcing in this article were too high. I will make a mental note of lowering them. Too bad too since I know y'all are better then this.
My problem with the article was that it couldn't follow the same basic rules of a forum post. I actually did hear back from an admin, and after apparently much discussion (really?) off the boards, they have decided that articles shouldn't have to follow any sort of listing of sources or giving image credits. I think it sad for the website who holds itself up to being better then the rest of the Internet that they would be so lazy when it comes to this. The reason for this is that they don't want people to be intimidated in submitting articles.
Anyway, I am done with this now.
