    Copying and pasting articles

    Assalamu alaikum

    I hope you are all in the best state of Health and Imaan

    I have noticed alot of people usually copy and paste articles into the forum. I think this is a really good idea, and i encourage them to do so. However, most of these articles do tend to be really long subhnallah. I thought I would just make the suggestion that maybe you could copy parts of it, everyday. This would make it easier for people to read it. As it is really difficult reading some articles which tend to be up to 10-20 pages long. Especially when reading from monitor.

    I hope my brothers and sisters take this into consideration. Once again my aim is not to discourage users from pasting articles in here, on the contrary I am merely suggestion a more constructive method of implementing this.

    Barakallahu feekum

    Re: Copying and pasting articles



    How about providing a link instead which magically transports you to the article's house? Hows that, eh? Actually, it is still better to see the articles on the forum. And blah what was the point in me even posting.

    Assalamu 'alaikum

    I thought I would add this InshaAllah.

    It is obvious alot of members are copying and posting articles, there is nothing wrong with this and may Allah reward you for sharing it. However it would be good if you could share your thoughts regarding that topic also InshaAllah, this will encourage debates between members.

    Barakallah feek

    Re: Copying and pasting articles

    On our forum we paste the complete article as a form of resource. What we do on some occations is provide points or summaries. What we also like to do, and i suggest you guys do it here is format your posts.

    Quran: Bolded
    Hadeeth: Italicized
    Sayings: Italicized
    titles: bolded
    subtitles: bolded and italicized

    also add paragraph format and colour coordinated


    this makes it much easier to read

    a suggestion

    brothers and sisters.
    I don't intend on sounding rude or anything, but to all those who post up long articles, i mean the ones that go on for more than one post, or even lengthy ones in general, can u please post up a section a day, or something similar like that. maybe it;s just me, but inshallah, that way readers that have a short attention span (like me) will remain interested and motivated to read them.
    just a suggestion.
    jazakallahu khair.

    You could also insist that they divide their post out into sections or to make a general summary in the top part of the post that way those like yourself can just read the few lines to get a general idea and not have to waste an hour or so to read the whole issue.

    Re: Copying and pasting articles

    walkikum salam

    Copying and pasting is actually quite annoying when it comes to debates or actual discussions.

    As for reading an article as someone already stated a link should be sufficient maybe with a small paragraph from the article.

    Since we do have to realize that traffic is pretty much the life blood of any website. And to take their articles without permission and posting them on other sites is actuall intellectual theft. Because someone has obiviously spent a large part of their time and effort compiling an article and writing it.

    So it is actually morally wrong.
    The exception to this would of course be fatwas which could be posted up to prove a point in a debate.

    just my 2 cents

    Re: Copying and pasting articles

    i think it's a good idea to paste the first paragraph or 2 and then the link if a person wants to read further.
    i agree - long = tedious.
    there are often articles (esp. about islam) that i would find interesting if they weren't sooooo long.

    Re: Copying and pasting articles

    I agree with the previous posters.

    To be honest, I tend not to read copy-and-paste jobs ... so I am probably missing out on a lot of useful information!

    If at all possible, I prefer to read posts in people's own wording - it's just much more akin to having a 'real' face-to-face conversation.
    I think sometimes people fear that they may something that isn't 100% according to Islamic teachings ... and therefore prefer to use Q&A stuff from Islamic sites rather than their own words.

    For me it is always much more interesting to hear how people apply their faith personally in their own lives, rather than listen to some scholarly teachings.
    But that's just me ...

    Peace
