The rules relating to the posting of photos and other media on the internet are tricky. While photos, scans of historical documents and from magazines and newspapers on Phoenix do not belong to us, or may not even belong to the poster, please appreciate that they are often part of a post that someone has worked on long and hard.
There are some occasions where a member has bought and paid for a photograph or document and has been kind enough to share it on Phoenix.
It’s frustrating to then see some members regularly copying and posting these images elsewhere, claiming the spotlight and without crediting the source. Unfortunately, this practice may discourage members from posting their articles and photos here.
By the same token, members posting photos and other media here, should credit the source, if possible.
While we cannot prevent anyone from copying a photo or content from this forum, and posting it on another site, we ask that: a) you do not constantly do so and b) where you occasionally do this, that you credit Phoenix as your source. This may also encourage other people to join this forum.
If you continue to regularly post content from Phoenix without due credit, we will have no other option but to impose a ban.
