If you plan on posting news that is from other sources or news sites, please keep the following in mind:

1) Please do not post entire articles from other sources. Most news organizations prohibit copy & pasting of their entire article.
It is against the "fair usage" policy set by most news outlets. They expect a paragraph posted, at most, with a link to their article's web page.

2) Make sure that you link to the original article. Not quoting a copied article is against the copyright laws of most countries.

 

3) When linking to external sources, keep thread and article titles the same.

If you have questions, please PM any staff member. Thank you for your consideration.
