A reminder to members posting pictures that - to the best of their abilities - you need to credit the source of those pictures. This can be done by including a link and/or indicating the source in your post. In cases where the photographer owning the pictures asks that you link to his/her website, you MUST also do so.

We realise that it may not be possible to know the original source of the photo - but you still need to make the effort to show where you found it. If it's from Facebook for example, indicate this and copy the link. We need to be as open and transparent as possible about WHERE the pictures came from AND to make the effort to document this.

Staff thank you in advance for your cooperation!

2. Please note that if links/or other clear indication are not included, you will receive a PM to add them. If you do not respond and comply within a reasonable time, the picture will be removed and you will receive a warning.

Can I just ask (and this is just an honest question, not me arguing with authority!) why is it that we have to credit the source and provide the link too? Why isn't giving the name of the site enough? Legalities I'm guessing, perhaps?

^ It's fine to credit via a link or to indicate the source, provided it's a direct source (as opposed to a vague "From Facebook" statement). For example, it's OK to say "This is from XYZ's Facebook page" as this is a clear source. Hope this helps? :)

So if I name the exact location as I have been doing (for example, last.fm and Rammstein-Network FB page) I don't need to actually include the link, right?
