FOURTH THING: Linking/sharing copyrighted material. If you want to share information you've found on another site, please abide by the following rules:
Picture - put a link to the article where the picture originally appeared.
Article - please only post a snippet of the article; do not post the article in it's entirely. Always provide a link to the original article, whether you are quoting a snippet (and that's all you want/need) or whether you wish to discuss the entire article.
In a companion piece to this one, what I've hoped to show is that the defining fit characteristics of bikes are no longer solely contained in the frame. A "56cm" bike is no longer adequate or even an applicable description of the size of bike you ride. At least, not in triathlon.
Material which violates copyright law - if you post a link to files/videos/downloads/etc. that represent a copyright violation (such as a YouTube video or Torrent file of the IM Hawaii NBC broadcast) or request such material, you're account will be terminated.
EXAMPLE: "Check out the Ironman broadcast on YouTube..." OR "Any links to Kona torrent file?"
FOURTH-AND-A-HALF THING: Linking/sharing material that you created - e.g., linking to a blog post of YOURS. Please do NOT use this forum strictly as a source of traffic for your website, blog, etc. If you want to link to your blog, please do so in your signature ONLY; please do not start posts of the form, "hey check out this article that I wrote over here..." If you wish to engender discussion on this forum about something that you wrote elsewhere (your blog, your high school newspaper, whatever), please be aware that it will be allowed to stand or not at our discretion. A lot of this will be totally subjective, based on how long you've been a member, how often you link to your own outside content, etc. There's no hard-and-fast rule for what's allowed and what's not. Basically, if it seems that the primary reason for posting is to direct traffic away from this site and to yours, we will pull it. If it seems the primary reason for you posting it is to talk about it here, we'll probably leave it.
FIFTH THING: in order to prevent spam via private message, we have restricted the outgoing private messaging capabilities of users. In order to SEND private messages, you must have been registered for 10 days and have made five undeleted posts (i.e., if someone clicks on the "Show user's posts" button in your profile, there needs to be at least five entries there).
SIXTH THING: The First Amendment reads as follows, "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances." Slowtwitch is not the federal government. You don't have a right to free speech here. We don't preemptively monitor what you write, but we do reserve the right to delete anything you write and to delete/ban/disable your account because of it. If we remove something that you've written and you wonder why, please ask us via email. Please don't start a new thread that simply rehashes what you wrote that got deleted and also complains about it being deleted.
