&binggaling Rephrasing is still plagiarizing, however in that case, you don't need to quote. Instead, you can say, "According to xyz.com...".

You can put tags within the posts or even use the URL of another Bubblews post, if it is appropriate. Just keep in mind that if it isn't appropriate, it can distract from the content of the post, which can lessen it's value. I prefer to tag at the end, because it doesn't break up the post needlessly.

what i'm learning is provide what they need to make it easy for bubblews to trace and verify everything when they review our posts.

about plagiarism, if you've read or researched from 2 or 3 sources and rewrote what they say to come up with your own article, do you quote those sources too?

about tags, i guess it means we can't put them within the post anymore. but what about linking two posts together that are related to each other?
what about putting links or tags in your comments?

&Bookworm It is a really good idea, John, to prevent possible misunderstandings.

That's a good tip about crediting one's own photos - I haven't done so to date, but will now do so.

Great list of reminders. I hope that newbies will read this helpful post.

&clewand550 The tags haven't changed, but the are listed in "Tags" only when they are entered in the first field. Note that I still put mine in at the bottom.

&Deepak2J Because Bubblews has no way of knowing that they are your images, if you don't. It is never safe for a site like Bubblews to assume that no attribution means that the writer took the picture themselves, or own the rights to the image.

&dparwaugh5755 I also take many of my own pictures, though I don't take them all.

Good information you posted here. I don't use photo's that I did not take with my own camera. I am learning as I go. Thank you for sharing.

Why I should attribute myself for my own images ???

Have you figured out how to put in the tags? I haven't been able to figure that out with the new update. Thank you for sharing these great tips.
