Dear Tibetan Blogstation, I noticed you are copying entire articles from my blog http://www.mountainphoenixovertibet.blogspot.com to your website. I appreciate your interest in my blog. Nevertheless, please refrain from copying entire posts onto yours. All my essays are copyrighted. They are my my work and my intellectual property. It is ok for you to extract a few a lines and then link to the original, but taking the whole content is not acceptable. Thank you for the understanding. Mountain Phoenix over Tibet
I wrote a longer reply here but am not sure if I pressed ‘approve and reply’. Anyway, please have a look at the extractions from your blog and let me know if you’re fine with the lengths. Gyatso
Dear Gyatso-la, thank you for showing willingness to compromise. There already is a good extract of my essays on your homepage. The link from your homepage should go directly to the posts on my website, not to an interim page even when it’s shortened. There is no value in duplicating content. But there is value in the homepage where you give an overview of new articles on Tibet. Thukje ché. Mountain Phoenix
What you are suggesting would save me a lot of time and I’m all for it, but I’m not sure if it’s feasible with the format I’m using. I upload content for a new post and it automatically chooses the first few lines to go on the homepage, and so I will need to put the hyperlink exactly in the right place etc. I’ll try it later today and if it doesn’t work, I’ll be happy to delete your essays. Thanks.
I am unable to put a hyperlink to your site on the words ‘continue reading’ that appears automatically on Tibetan Blog Station’s homepage. The extract length on the homepage is set by the them design and it adds the words’ continue reading’. Let me know if you would like me to delete all your posts. I think it would be a shame, but it’s your call. My intention for TBS was it to be a hub that had the potential to create some sort of tipping point that would greatly increase exposure for individual blogs with intelligent and interesting Tibetan perspectives. Blogs like yours add complexity and texture to Tibetan issues, and should be read by more than just your blog followers. Your call.
Dear Gyatso-la, thank you for trying. In this case, when the format is technically not changeable, I’m afraid we have to leave things as they are. You shortened the extracts, so I think that’s fair. Thank you. Mountain Phoenix
I’m very glad you’ve decided to leave it this way. Thanks. It does make for an awkward two step reading experience, but I can understand your concerns. I was originally assuming that the hyperlink to the source blog served to both cite and introduce it to new readers. Best wishes. Valley Field Mouse.
I am little taken aback to see some of my notes on facebook here. Though I appreciate what you are trying to do here, creating a ”hub”, which I think is a wonderful thing. I didn’t realize my notes were up for posting elsewhere without my knowledge. It would have been nice if I was notified, because the notes are more or less something that I scribble or type away at one sitting. I would like to know if such notes are ready to be posted elsewhere. That is my concern here. Thank you. And I agree with Mountain over phoenix suggestions also.
