    Default Reposts welcome ... or not

    The idea of being able to express your view on reposts of your images was a great one when it was introduced, but there are still many members, some of whom post regularly, who do not have this info in their signatures.

    I was wondering if it was possible to make "Editing of Photos" a field in our profile, like location, that appears at the top of each of our posts. I think it would then be clearer whether or not reposting was okay. I know of a few photography forums that have this field, and it seems to work well on them.

    Cheers,
    Ashwin

    It might be something that we could implement but that doesn't mean people would use it (just like with the signature thing). It is in the forum rules that permission needs to be obtained from the user which I must admit I don't do all that often (I just sometimes assume sometimes that the poster would appreciate any time taken to try any PP options) so perhaps that is something that needs changing so people feel freer to do it (repost).
    Then we could have people saying in their signatures "no reposts" instead of the what we have now (reposts welcome etc). That might make more sense.

    Definitely something we could implement on the forum and a great suggestion, Ashwin.

    This is a common addition on many photography related forums I visit. As long as the default is set to No, I think it's a great idea. Opt in.
