|LAWS (such as copyright laws for photos and obituaries) supercede all opinions of all others and those that violate such should not refer to other site rules or suggestions when they break actual laws or the privacy of those left behind.|
If I send an edit to have an obituary truncated to at least remove the names of the living or have a photo removed and that edit is ignored or rejected I will then ask the site to remove the WHOLE obituary or photo from that memorial. In general, I will usually only (there may be exceptions) do this for memorials that are linked to or related to memorials that I have made because there is no point in me following the copyright laws and respecting the privacy of the surviving family members and friends named in the obituaries if memorials linked or related to mine violate those same laws and privacy. I do not want to be connected to breaking the law and this includes other members sneaking in obituaries in photo postings or flowers onto my memorials.
Please, Please, Please people do not assume that the locations you find on the Social Security Death Index listed with the date of death is where they actually died.
Those locations are only where the person was living when they died and is not given by the SSDI as to where the person actually died so to use those locations as to where they actually died is factually incorrect not just a matter of style of creating a memorial.
Members, who as a matter of course, post copyrighted obituaries and or photos onto memorials (in violation of copyright laws and or privacy) should not presume to tell me how to do my memorials for their creditability is tarnished and to push me on it would only result in me not accepting any edits for any part of a memorial (from top to bottom) from those types of people unless another member with untarnished creditability tells me the same edit.
Please do not post copyrighted photos (specifically, BUT NOT ONLY, those that are photos taken by professional studios-professional photographers) on my memorials UNLESS YOU are the copyright holder (YOU took the photo OR you purchased rights to it OR were given DIRECT PERMISSION from the person that really took the photo). The site forbids such postings due to copyright laws. IF NEED BE, I will ask the site to remove them. I do not want to be a party to copyright infringement. Using information found in obituaries to help you make a memorial is not a copyright violation but to copy and paste or "print-screen" a copy and post it as a photograph is a violation.
But for those that I do not send an edit about the obituary please people if you are going to be lazy enough to just copy and paste the obituary in the bio field please do not be even more lazy and not fill-in the locations in the date fields and I see certain members habitually violate copyright laws and site rules with obituaries in bio fields and then are also habitually too lazy to fill in the location fields or even post a flower! To me, that just implies that they are a "Numbers" member and or are lazy.
There are no rules restricting what goes into the nickname field.
