PostSubject: Copyright / Netiquette Question   Sat Jun 24, 2017 11:05 am

Is it allowed to repost contributions from another forum when I put it in quotes and name the poster and the original place?

1. It's something I wonder for quite some time.
2. I'd like to repost the old grab-bags from the Scroll of Colors


Is there general advice / netiquette?
How would you feel as an "original poster" about it?
Does it make a difference that in this case the "environment" would be similar?

I think you can repost from the old Scroll. This is basically supposed to be a continuation of that.

If you were reposting from an unrelated forum, then I'd say check with the person. But we're all the same people having all the same discussions in the same format around the same topics.. so as long as you credit the original writer, I don't think there should be any problem with that.

Thank you for your advice, Lunakat! Of course that's the answer I've hoped for. Giving credit will be self-evident. Including the original writers is as important for me as the content itself.

More input anyone?

I believe Luna is correct. Just credit the member/writer. If ever there's a problem and someone voices against it (the person whose writing you posted), we can always remove it

Thank you, Kindredsoul. I'll take it as an official permission.

Given the current state of the old SoC I'll start re-posing the old grab bags as far as I could save them.
