Dear Dyxumers,

Copyright matters have always been of high importance for Dyxum - we always respected ownership and intellectual proprty rights of the pictures posted by our members. Our commitment to these matters is highlighted in separate section of our Forum Rules And Guidelines. However on our forum we not only share our photos - frequently we share our knowledge and sometimes the easiest way of sharing it is to rework somebody else's photo to show e.g. different processing or different framing or generally demonstrate what you mean. We believe that in such cases one should ask the owner of the photo for permission before publishing reworked picture. And because of this we decided to make it clear in our copyright rules linked above.

Having said that we need to note that there are two "corners" on Dyxum where such rule would be too restrictive and way too troublesome to realise, leading to a big mess in posting: Photographic Assignments and Dyxum Critic Corner.

In Photographic Assignments our "judges" from among Admins, Mods, and Alpha Eyes groups frequently have to re-process pictures posted by the members working the assignments and publish this re-processed work in order to provide feedback. Because of this we adjusted our general copyright rule expressed in Rules And Guidelines to allow modifications of photos posted in this section of Dyxum: please check Assignments Index and Rules post for details.

In Dyxum Critics Corner we have very similar situation - the member who decides to post a photo in this section of Dyxum expects getting in-depth critique, which frequently is not possible without suggesting possible improvements on a re-worked copy of the shot. Because of this we also decided "loosen" our copyright rule a tiny bit - please see the details in Critics Corner Forum Guidelines.

All our members are invited to make themselves familiar with all the above documents (especially if they have not done this so far).

We believe that the above rules are clear, fair, and acceptable for all Dyxumers. Please feel free to provide your feedback by replying to this thread.

Best regards,
MiPr (on behalf of Dyxum Admins)

Sensible rules, but you also could put 'Edit ok' or 'Edit not ok' in your profile. I know other forums do.

I agree but unfortunately we do not have any facility in our forum app to enforce this so the rules were introduced to explicitly set the "default" to "Edit not ok" for all users (with some exceptions for Assigs and Critics Corner)

New proposed rules make sense to me.
