Announcement: posts containing a single link and empty posts

As well as being a discussion forum TRF threads contain a wealth of detailed information about royal figures and their activities, fashions, jewels, homes etc.

A valuable part of this growing historical record is the collection of tens of thousands of images, newspaper articles and links posted across the Forums which add to the sum of our knowledge and understanding.

Of concern to the moderating team, and no doubt to many members, is the increasing prevalence of links being posted with no accompanying information or detail whatsoever. Links to non-English articles or blogs are sometimes not accompanied by an explanation or short translation either.

A member who wishes to know something about a picture or article is therefore required to post questions asking for details. This is a frustrating exercise and would not be necessary if the relevant information was provided in the first place.

To enhance the quality of links posting and to minimise unnecessary irritants, members who post links or a series of links should ensure that the links are accompanied by some detail and explanation. This would include the event, date, location, and, if necessary, identification of the people in the link(s).

Please note that posts containing bare links with no accompanying information may be removed. Empty posts may continue to be removed too.

To summarize, please make sure that:
1) links are accompanied by a text that explains what the link contains
2) non-English language links are summarized in English
3) posts do not contain irrelevant short exclamations or comments only


Please contact the moderating team if you have any questions or remarks about this matter.
Thanks to those posters who already ensure their link posts provide members with all the relevant details.

Marengo
on behalf of the TRF moderating team
