    No problem, but you should still feel free to report duplicates when you see them by RBPing all the links to the mods.

    Folks, just a reminder of the guidelines as per the opening post, especially this part:

    5) When posting News Articles from other sites and major news outlets, please do not quote the entire article as this will most probably be a violation of copyright. Rather just post the link and then quote two or three of the most relevant paragraphs. We do not want people to steal the MyBB articles in their entirety so we wish to show the same respect to other sites. Quoting entire articles also steals advertising revenue from other sites. See below for an example of how to quote articles from other news sites.

    May as well get rid of this guideline, since rpm totally ignores it, meaning there is not much incentive for anyone else to comply....

    You are confused.

    MyBB subscribes to News24wire that allows rpm, Gary, myself and the mybb journos to legally use their content in full. And that is the condition..... we may NOT edit their content if we copy it and we post the source, which you will see is a link to the news24 article.

    So yes, you and others will still need to comply. Thank you.

    I always do comply, it was drilled into me at university but I've noticed others, like orbitaldawn and Hamster do not comply but never seem to get called out for it, even if reported

    Please note that OrbitalDawn and schumi also have access to the news24wire service, so please do not report their posts when they quote articles from that service.

    Mods need to clarify. Are we not allowed to critically analyse news and raise issues that we have with topics, even if those issues are racial in nature?
