  • vBulletin Copyright Question

    I have a question:
    Can I use the below image to satisfy the attribution requirements of vBulletin?

    wait for a staff answer, but I am pretty sure no because the "text" is readable by Google and such..

      If that was the problem, I could just slice it and put the text where it needs to go

        I don't think having the text in a picture is a problem.

        The only thing that anyone could have to say against it is the number format, but that's for staff to decide.

          You need the copyright symbol: ©

          Otherwise it's fine.

          Also there'sd no nned to post on the forums when you have a support ticket with the same question.

                  You could also add the text contained in the image as part of the ALT tag for those who have images turned off.

                    and just to be the Grammar Nazi, it's "its", not "it's" as you have.

                      Actually, I think you'll find it's "it's".

                        No, wrong.

                        As per http://www.stormloader.com/garyes/its/#top

                        The It's vs. Its page
                        If you're confused by these two little words, you've come to the right place. (Not that there aren't other right places.)

                        It's is a contraction for it is or it has.

                        Its is a possessive pronoun meaning, more or less, of it or belonging to it.

                        And there is absolutely, positively, no such word as its'.
                        A simple test

                        If you can replace it[']s in your sentence with it is or it has, then your word is it's; otherwise, your word is its.
                        Another test

                        Its is the neuter version of his and her. Try plugging her into your sentence where you think its belongs. (It's better to use her for reasons I may explain someday.) If the sentence still works grammatically (if not logically) then your word is indeed its.
                        Examples

                        It's been good to know you. Contraction: it has
                        It's a bird! It's a plane! Contraction: it is

                        The dodo bird is known for its inability to fly. Possessive pronoun: its inability = the dodo bird's inability
                        I will accept your apology whenever you are ready to give it.

                          I'd agree with kall, but I'm interested in how the other two backup their comments

                            Apology? I don't think so.
                            And in my opinion, you are wrong.

                              One would expect somebody who lists North Yorkshire as their location to have a better command of...

                              Oh, North Yorkshire?

                              Right you are then. You obviously live in an area that pays little or no heed to the 'rules of grammar' that the rest of the English-speaking world uses.
