    New forum rules regarding posting of links

    I photograph players at pool tournaments and store the images on my hosting site. Would people be interested in seeing these images? Presumably, it would be ok to share these links (one gallery per tournament) provided there's some descriptive text explaining a bit about the tournament and...

    Copyright Question : AZBilliards News Articles

    Thanks, Ryan. Perhaps I wasn't clear but AZBilliards uses two watermarks. One is their logo that they appear to add to every news image. The other is their copyright which, as far as I can tell, they only add to certain images (including mine). I'm ok with the first. It's the latter that I'm...

    Copyright Question : AZBilliards News Articles

    Silly question that I'm not sure where to post. I'm sure there's a perfectly good explanation. I just can't find the right person to enlighten me. Here goes : Why does AZBilliards claim the copyright on my already copyrighted images when used for news articles? This has happened on several...

    Is the APA still making a decent profit?

    Interesting. In our area, any greens fees are paid by the teams directly to the bar, pool hall, etc.

    What warrants negative iTrader feedback?

    Agreed. No feedback is a fine option. This begs the question about how you and the seller attempted to resolve this issue.

    An ethical question

    I've been a captain for six or eight years now. Forgive me for saying this but I think your focus is entirely too narrow. It sounds like you just realized that this might be a problem and are wondering what to do. I look at this all year long. I work with my players the entire year and know...

    An ethical question

    And to answer the original question, sitting a player out for a week or three is team management.

    An ethical question

    Just to be a little more technically correct, you enter LTC as the higher of your current SL or your SL when your team qualified. This is to keep a team from qualifying in summer or fall and then lowering a player's skill level before LTC. Also, in order to participate in LTC (same as...
