My Apologies

I have been informed that a couple post that I did this morning were removed because this site does not allow to share cut and paste messages. I am truly sorry about that because I didn't know and I completely understand having it removed because of the rules. I just find that sometimes there are things we come upon that may be an inspiration to others and I thought that as long as I posted the original author it would be all right. So now that I know that is not allowed... what about images with inspirational messages. Are those allowed?

I did read the guidelines but I'm not always able to remember everything.

@MistyckMoon maybe if you acknowledge the post as from its original author, i don't think there will be a problem at all. if we copy and paste an article, then we may be committing a crime on intellectual property.

@ridingbet I did that, I made sure that the author and her profession were properly mentioned. I did everything I was suppose to do including introducing the the writing and making it clear what it was and who it was by.

Better you mention them in the post itself and add it as image. provided they are free images

I usually use my own images as I am a photographer and an artist. But the post was removed anyway. It's not a big deal to me because I shared it on another site that does allow cut and paste as long as we credit the author and it is a site that also pays you to post. So I'm not really losing out on anything anyway. I am also a writer and was just sharing something from an inspirational speaker and doesn't mind the shares as long as she is credited.

As long as they are posted with a discussion, and the images are not copyright, there's no issue with them

Thanks JJ. I'll just play it safe since this forum is much stricter than another website where I write articles and where we are allowed to share the works of others as long as we credit the author and artist and mention the website. It is also a paying site so i'll just share inspirational messages there.
