All articles need to be posted in accordance with copyright law. The poster must provide a link to the original article and may include no more than 4-5 paragraphs of the original article. No copyrighted photos may be posted. Please PM a moderator or administrator with any questions or concerns. Thank you.
Please do not quote pictures...doing so can eat up the bandwith for the person that is hosting the image you see (that would be your CC friends, since we don't allow hot linking) and it eats up huge chunks of the viewing page.
You should never link directly to the image on another site. That is called hotlinking and stealing bandwith and that is bad. If you have any questions, or aren't sure if what you're doing is hotlinking, please read up both here and here.
Instead of hotlinking...you will need to copy the picture to your computer, upload it to your own image hosting service (flickr, photobucket, etc.) and then load it onto CC from there. It's more work, but better karma as long as you're following copyright law Not to mention that some folks protect their images from hotlinking by having porn images load up instead of the image you *think* you downloaded.
