    Admin has made a ruling that any photos with a copyright or watermark are not to be posted on this forum unless the photographer is a 'paid' advertiser. He has allowed some existing photos to remain. I am sure you would agree that a photographer (hobbiest or professional) could do well from promoting their photos on our forums.


    So the rules are:
    NO PHOTOGRAPHY WEBSITE LINKS ARE TO BE POSTED ON THE FORUM
    NO PHOTO'S WITH COPYRIGHT OR WATERMARKS ARE TO BE POSTED ON THE FORUM

    Please realise that if you post photo's on the internet then you always run the risk that someone will 'steal' your photo. If you wish to post photo's then this is the risk that you take.

    If you wish to post photo's with watermarks then you need to become a paid advertiser on Stockyard.net and then it won't be a problem. Murray only charges $50 per year to be an advertiser on here, which, if you do a bit of research, is very very cheap!!

    FROM NOW ON ALL PHOTO'S WITH WATERMARKS THAT ARE NOT OWNED BY A PAID ADVERTISER WILL BE DELETED IMMEDIATELY... NO EXCEPTIONS!!
