When Copy + Pasting Entry Lists...

Post by Cynon on Tue Mar 19, 2013 7:17 pm

When copy+pasting an entry list or article from Jayski, NASCAR.com, or wherever, it would be nice to give those folks a bit of a friendly thank you nod by providing a link to their site. Jayski, for example, gets money from advertising revenue, so I feel that we, as users of a free service, should give him a friendly thank you nod in return (by increasing his page views and thus making it more appealing for advertisers to support the site and keep it running).

In short, it would be nice to see links to entry lists instead of huge copy+pastes, or if you MUST copy+paste an article's content, add this (or something close to it) at the bottom...

Using Jayski.com as an example...

Code:
Source: [url="http://www.jayski.com"]Jayski[/url].

Any questions about this should be directed to my PM box.
