Rules for Posting Articles and Other Media Releases

1. All posted articles and other media releases must respect the fair use rule. Unless you have explicit permission from the author(s) or the work is in public domain, it is not ok to post full articles or other media releases. The correct way is to post a short summary of or excerpt from the article which you can usually find in the headlines or the first paragraph. You can also choose to summarize it yourself in which case you can write as much as you like, as long as you do not copy anything from the article.

Below is an example of a correctly posted article:
(Title of thread):
How Vikings Might Have Navigated on Cloudy Days

Vikings navigated the oceans with sundials aboard their Norse ships. But on an overcast day, sundials would have been useless. Many researchers have suggested that the on foggy days, Vikings looked toward the sky through rock crystals called sunstones to give them direction.

2. Posting simply a link without any comment is not acceptable, we like to know what we are going to read about.

3. Where possible and when time permits, add your own comment, for example your opinion, a poll or a question. This also stimulates discussion.

4. Lastly, the source must be credited, preferably with a link to the article in question. If you cannot remember the link but you can remember the name of the publication, mention just the name of the publication. If you cannot remember where you have the information from, state that the source is unknown.

Posts that do not abide by these rules will be edited accordingly by the Staff.
