Why doesn't everyone put a source or reference to all entrys?
This would firstly help everyone if they want to further read the article as its not alway uploaded in full here.
Secondly information on source may be updated which means we can go back to it and edit the entry in thread - more info or even an image that wasn't there in the past.
Thirdly it helps with copyright if we give the orginal source credit for info we have used plus if they have any problems with us using the info we can just delete info and leave a direct link to it instead.
If you link to photographes. Please give a copyright notation and the name of the photographer in that way (c) Photgraph by courtesy of (Name of the Photographer). The wildlife and plants photographers of the world deserve that.
I always do my best about it. Unfortunately, as most books I read come from the library (and I read lots and lots) I can't always remember where I got this or that information. If it wasn't enough, a lot of library books are no longer part of the library, because library book sales have occured once a year since the past seven years; so, there are sources I can't find anymore. I'm very, very sorry. However, I promise you my complete honesty in every post I send here.
