    Hi All,

    Just an update. Sometimes people post articles from outside sites that are of interest. This is fine (if it's not your site), but I'd ask that people limit the copy/paste to an excerpt of the original article and not copy the entire article. Also provide a link to the original article.

    thanks

    What you mean?

    Like for example:

    I review at STP (which I dont) but I post my reveiew here at TA User Review Section. But you want us to limit how much we do that?

    I'm confused...:confused::confused::confused::confused:

    this policy has been added to the official list of rules:

    http://forums.toucharcade.com/announcement.php?f=2

    offenses will result in infractions, and repeat infractions would eventually result in banning, though I don't think it would get to that. Just link to article you'd like to discuss.

    Oops. I`ve been copy pasting entire articles here. Didnt realize there was anything wrong with it :eek:
    (though I did add the original link in all the posts)

    Will make sure to cut it down from now on :)

    Is there a maximum amount of paragraphs or text that we can use as an excerpt?

    Or just what see fit as the most vital information from the original article?
