Guidelines For Referencing Articles From Another Site

If you reference an article from another site, please do not post the entire article within your post. Simply quote a small segment of it, along with a link to the source.

Use our quote function to help make it clear that the words are not yours.

Example: A quoted section would look like the following.

"The difference between a handyman and a licensed contractor isn’t about who can do a better job – it is about who can handle more of the responsibilities each job entails. Some of the best cabinetmakers in the country have never had a license, but in most states you’ll need a contractor’s license if you want to build the kitchen that will hold those cabinets." Do You Need a General Contractor’s License?
We should NOT share pictures from another site without permission to do so.

Please do not just post a link or article without adding your own thoughts regarding the information you are sharing.

This is an FAQ tutorial thread. If you have additional questions or need help, please start a new thread in our Site Feedback and Suggestions section.
"Show respect even to people who donít deserve it, not as a reflection of their character, but as a reflection of yours."
