Hi Heidi, you're quite right that eBay images cannot be posted onto the board unless you receive permission to do so from the person who took the photo originally. If permission is granted to use someone's image it's normal to credit the image to the original photographer along with a note that you have their consent to repost it. Hope this helps clarify the board position. :) (Note the above also applies to images from any other website or from printed sources.)

Thanks for clarifying, Anne. I suspected this would be the position. Would it be worth spelling out in the stickies on this forum on Board policy and/ or guidance on posting pictures?

Hi Heidi, I'll take the suggestion to Committee and see what they think.

Heidi — Just reinforcing Anne's message.

I take the approach that unless I have specific permission to link to an image or web page, I always link to the home page and provide the navigation or route to follow to get to the image or page.

The reason is simple.   By linking directly you are usually bypassing whatever pays for the site, whether that is third party advertising, exposure to their shop window of tempting offerings, or something else.  You are gaining benefit from their website without paying for it.   And that is unreasonable, and could be considered theft of the website proprietor's allocation of bandwidth.   And if they discover or suspect what you have done, all they have to do is change a few filenames, and your link could be pointing to a less than appropriate image — I will leave that to your imagination!

That's why you should always link to the eBay listing rather than the specific image in it.   Oh, and if you suspect that someone is doing this to your eBay images, just revise your listing.    All the eBay-hosted image URLs will change.

BTW, Max, you mentioned 20th Century Factory Glass. Does it have much on AHW/ Sherdley/ Ravenhead? Only it's quite a hefty price tag.

Are there any other books that cover the subject (apart from McConnell and the BH leaflet)?

Thanks, David - you're a star! Can anyone tell me what year the new edition came out in - the ones I'm finding all seem to be 2000. And is the new edition substantially different/ better?

Not sure - might be best to ask in the Cafe. But normally, second editions clean up minor errors like names and dates. Mine appears to be © 2000 if that's any help.

One book that's definitely worth getting — oh, and the two pages immediately before the frontispiece are devoted to AHW tumblers!  8)

Well, I promised I'd get to grips with my digital camera (and how to post on the glass gallery) - several hours later, here's my AHW collection, with the information I've managed to glean. Apologies for beginner-level photography, and for all the urls - I couldn't figure out how to turn text into links.
