Avatar & Signature - Pictures, Photos, Images - 03/01/08 01:49 AM

Has everyone checked their avatars & signature images please?
~ That they are within the rules ~ re sizes, etc ~ and that they don't break copyright law?

See:
http://www.wineintro.com/forum/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=264116#Post264116


Copyright:
Photos must be have been taken by you and be owned by you.
Artwork must be your own work & property.
Alternatively, you must have been given express permission to use the images on this forum.
This is the law!

Size:
Please keep any custom avatars at or below 100 x 100 pixels.
However, as members with multiple keets need a slightly larger image size there is a hard upper limit of size at 320 wide by 240 high.
Signature images must be under 200 pixels in height.

To check sizes, right click on imagrs & go to 'properties'.

My avatar dimensions are 300x240 and most of the avatars I make for people on the forums are this size. That is just barely under the limit and I apologize.


Also, Nancy30 kindly edited and tagged my signature for me and I'm just checking to be sure that it doesn't break any copyright rules.

Thank you,
3bud

Sorry ~ I don't understand this. confused

What does 'marked r' mean?
What rules are extreme?
Nancy, have you given a photo that you have taken to another member ~ if so, then they have your permission, so that's OK.

The law is that you cannot post a photo, drawing, etc, made by someone else, without their express permission.

Thank you for checking, 3budgies ~ copyright is a very serious matter; not 'rules' but 'law'.

If someone has taken a photo, then it belongs to them ~ regardless of whether or not someone else has edited it ~ and it cannot be posted on the forum unless the owner of the picture ~ usually the photographer unless s/he has waived rights ~ has given permission.

Even then, if the image has been altered, they may wish to withdraw that permission, since agreement would have been for the original image.

While I appreciate that some people may turn a blind eye to this sort of thing, it is breaking the law and Lisa, who has to pay for this forum out of her own pocket, does not want the worry of such an eventuality.

Lisa allows us the privilege of enjoying this forum ~ I try to ensure that it cannot cause her any legal problems. I'm sure that all members will feel the same way.

Ok, so neither me nor Nancy took the photo in my signature, but this is the website I got the picture from. http://www.redjumpsuit.com/banners/ The owner of this site definitely seems to be okay with people usuing his/her pictures because they seem to be promoting the USE of their pictures smile Just let me know what you think, PDM.

Re: Avatar & Signature - Pictures, Photos, Images - 03/05/08 10:08 PM

Also, the two little "quotes" on the right hand side of my signature are from www.photobucket.com and that is an image sharing site, so I am fairly sure that people on that site are willing to let their pictures be used by others.

Re: Avatar & Signature - Pictures, Photos, Images - 03/06/08 12:59 AM

Just because photos are on Photobucket doesn't mean that they aren't copyrighted. I have photos on there, but I own the copyright & have not given permission for anyone to use them.

This is from their site:
Quote:

a. Post, upload, email, or otherwise transmit (i) any Content that you do not have the lawful right to copy, transmit and display (including any Content that would violate any confidentiality or fiduciary obligations that you might have with respect to the Content); (ii) any Content for which you do not have the consent or permission of each identifiable person in the Content to use the name, voice, signature, photograph, or likeness of each such person (to the extent each is implicated by the Content); or (iii) any Content that infringes the intellectual property rights or violates the privacy rights of any third party (including without limitation copyright, trademark, patent, trade secret, or other intellectual property right, or moral right or right of publicity); ..'

I agree that it does look as if they are happy with the banner being used. Lisa or I will let you know if there is ever a problem with it.

Re: Avatar & Signature - Pictures, Photos, Images - 03/06/08 01:42 AM

PDM- I will remove the two quotes from photobucket on the right hand side of my signature just to be safe. I'll admit that I had not read the Restrictions, so thank you once again.

PDM- I do believe that I need to make mine smaller. Would it be better to put the slideshow in the avatar spot and the meez thing in the signature spot? It is 320 X 320
I need to make them smaller but I am not sure how to make the slideshow smaller.

I can delete both if I need too.

Re: Avatar & Signature - Pictures, Photos, Images - 03/06/08 03:55 AM

Val- I made you that avatar, so I can resize it for you.
Posted By: Stephen

Re: Avatar & Signature - Pictures, Photos, Images - 03/06/08 04:02 AM

Here you go. I resized it for you, Val. smile



http://i118.photobucket.com/albums/o117/3budgies/val-1.gif

EDIT: For some reason, even though I resized it on photobucket, it didn't seem to resize here ... try right clicking on the image, saving it to your computer and upoading it to your account.

EDIT: NEVER MIND! JUST IGNORE THE LARGE SLIDE ABOVE AND JUST COPY AND PASTE THE LINK INTO YOUR AVATAR SECTION. smile SORRY!

Re: Avatar & Signature - Pictures, Photos, Images - 03/11/08 11:01 PM

what i meant was marked restricted....and the rules i meant were for posting pics.....i mean if they put them online they know anyone can copy them and save them...i didnt mean the forum rules lol.

Re: Avatar & Signature - Pictures, Photos, Images - 03/13/08 01:53 AM

If you put a photo online, yes, there is always the risk that someone will take it ~ however, that is still illegal.

Would it be against the rules to take band's banner that they put on their myspace so they can be advertised and put it in your sig? What about a presidential banner?
Posted By: PDM

Re: Avatar & Signature - Pictures, Photos, Images - 03/13/08 09:15 PM

I suppose it depends on the banner.

I don't think Lisa wants 'advertising' per se on her site, but I think you just mean that the band would allow the use of the image this way.

Provided we have proof that the copyright holder has given permission, this should be OK.

3budgies,

Thanks for the offer to help with my Avatar. I was having trouble posting a photo from my regular website. After see the photobucket site mentioned I went there and viola! I now have a photo of my bird up.

I resized it to approx 100 pixels but it looks so small. Am I missing something?

Thanks,

Re: Avatar & Signature - Pictures, Photos, Images - 05/09/08 01:21 PM

Hi all!

It is very important that people are taking note of copyright law, when posting images.

Please could everyone check that thee's conform to copyright law.

Thank you.

*

Please ensure that you have read all rules & guidellines on this matter.

And do remember copyright comes under national & international laws ~ we are not just talking about forum rules.
If we break the law, Lisa could be in trouble ~ and we would lose the site.

Thank you!

Re: Avatar & Signature - Pictures, Photos, Images - 08/16/09 12:44 AM

My signature is exactly 201 pixels high, Do I have to make a new one?

**EDIT**
Actually, it appears that my signature has been squished to fit in. I'm assuming this is a standard thing to keep out oversized signatures? I believe I will just drop it then...

hi not sure if you mean unsubscribe from any forum or this one...each forum has a system where you can do that...and also there are options in each forum i believe where you can check off that you dont want to receive any emails...under options or preferences things like that if that is the only issue...

under your profile even ...just in those areas do not supply your email address.
