Not sure if that's the problem - aren't they only hosting public domain or at least, grey area stuff themselves? I mean they can't really hold copyright to most of the stuff on their website, right.

If you don't give them credits they'll sue you. They have some kind of copyright.

Also, I don't know how good are you people in English, but even I can find a lot of bollocks and mistakes in those texts. You can't publish books with mistakes and typos and bad grammar...

As I said, publishing books is serious business.

lol "some kind of copyright"! They can sue me all they want but I kind of doubt they can make any legitimate claims. No expert of course, but I don't think putting stuff on a website constitutes copyright entitlement. I'm thinking of public domain movies here, for example. If I upload such a movie somewhere, I can't claim copyright on it.

At least that's how I also think it (doesn't) work(s) with text conversion (OCR, html formatting etc).

But maybe someone else around here knows something concrete...

I find bollocks in texts all the time, but that's an issue with the text not any typos LOL!

We should definately not spend money on vbulletin atm. That **** is way to expensive, but if the site grows then it would be a cool idea.

I hereby grant RedMarx the rights to publish an anthology of my cartoons I've posted on here, all two of them. I look forward to The Best of Wunderbar pamphlet.

I don't think the upgrade points translate directly to 1 USD

Also, just poking around in the upgrades tab revealed this humorous mass PM I could send out.

"Dear forum members,

Thank you for participating in our forum. I've spent a lot of time making this forum the best I can, and looking to make it even better by purchasing some upgrades. If you could help out with a donation, as other members have done, that would be awesome. I'm looking to buy a domain (ourforum.com) and also remove the ads, which will make viewing our forum much better for current and future members.

To make a donation please go to our donation page and follow the steps. Even $10 will go a long way! If you donate even $10 you won't ever see ads on this forum again!

Thank you!
-Forum Management"

Sorry to revive a deadish thread, but just wanted to say I'd pay at least the $15 to renew the domain name for that **** Australia shirt.
