COPYING AND POSTING WORK BY OTHERS
As a reminder to all posters to this forum, here are some notes:

Work published or posted by someone on another web-site that you think this forum would benefit from should NOT be copied and pasted into a message and posted to this forum without the express permission of the author. That's what we call plagarism or copyright infringement.

The problem may be considered even more offensive if the material being reposted here was either from a private correspondence or private email. No one should ever post the contents of a private email correspondence to a public forum without the express permission of the author.

Before you can repost original works here, you can take one of several courses of action:

If you find information posted publicly somewhere that you think might be worth posting to this forum, then by all means post a link or reference to that item. But, DO NOT cut and paste the text or photo into a forum message. That will be deleted without question and without notification.

You can obtain the permission of the original author to repost his work or correspondence to this forum. The reposted work should include a notice that permission has been granted with a link or reference back to the original source.

Always request permission from an author to make public any private correspondence.

This type of consideration by our members will help to keep this forum at the top of the ethical pyramid. Thanks in advance for your co-operation.

although you should at least consider the bandwidth demands you are putting on some poor soul

Providing links to other websites is OK.

Copying information after receiving permission would be OK.

Posting an email conversation after receiving permission is OK.

Photocopying anything out of a book and posting it is NOT OK.

Obtaining permission from the author to post a copy is OK.

Quoting passages from a book with proper credits is OK.

I'm sure this does not cover it all.

Use good ethical judgement.
Thank you

PHOTOS - POSTING GUIDELINES AND LIMITATIONS
In amateur astronomy, image is everything, and so it comes as no surprise that we frequently want to share images with fellow Cloudy Nights members. This is a fine thing, especially with the number of excellent photographers and astro-imagers within our virtual community. However, for members using dial up connections, these images can come at the price of long waits while a thread downloads. As a courtesy to those using slower connection speeds, Cloudy Nights will now implement the following image posting policy: Cloudy Nights Image Posting Guidelines.

If you want to post an image larger than the CN forum limits allow, please post them to the members gallery, where size limits for pictures in threads do not apply.
A link to the image in the gallery can be easily placed in your post, directing the reader to you photograph or sketch, allowing them to view it if they so desire. Doing so is a courtesy to members on dial up connection, as it allows them to chose whether or not to wait for a picture to load. This is actually the preferred method of posting photos here on Cloudy nights. Please make sure that you post "your" photo to your own gallery, not someone else’s. Then any time you want to refer to your photo from a post, you simply link to it. This is a much more efficient way of posting.

Once you post your own photos to your gallery, you can address that photo to appear in either just your gallery or any other gallery, such as the "members photos" gallery or the "equipment gallery". But more importantly, once you have posted your photo to your personal gallery, anytime you want to use that photo again, from anywhere on the internet, all you need to do is link to it.

Thanks,

Cloudy Nights Staff

Many CN members have posted their self taken photos in the "Member Galleries". The galleries can be accessed just like any other forum. See the bottom of the main index for the link to Member galleries. There are hundreds of photos in the equipment gallery. Only a few show binoculars.

Actually, the preferred method of posting photos here to the binocular forum is to post "your" photo to your own gallery. Then any time you want to refer to your photo from a post, you simply link to it. Much more efficient way of posting.

Once you post your own photos to your gallery, you can address that photo to appear in either just your gallery or any other gallery, such as the "members photos" gallery or the "equipment gallery".

I set up a gallery titled Binoculars. You may create your own personal gallery and link your photos to appear in the Binocular gallery. Or you may post your photos directly to the binocular gallery. All photos posted to your personal gallery will always appear in your gallery, regardless of where else your provide a link for them to appear. Personal Gallery is recommended.
