Posting full Muse articles

Would you mind terribly on your article posts restricting yourselves to a lead paragraph only and asking people to click over to the source in a new window/new tab? (Just hit control before you click on a link.)

Part of how these online papers stay in business and bring you interesting articles about Muse is through advertising and page views. If you post the article in full and people do not read it on the original site, then revenue goes down. I love Muse as well, but this is a big forum and lost page views really add up.

Please think about this. Thanks!!

In 99% of the cases, I think that's exactly what people do(lead paragraph+link that is). The only time full articles are shown is when you either have to pay, register or if it is in a different language

Yep!

There's also times where there are scans from magazines (but those are usually more for the pictures because you can't really read the small text. )

Strange request. Certainly when related to your ps. It doesn't exactly pull it outside the gossip mag/gossip website category if it is reported on one. It seems a bit like you are trying to make a profit on the back of it.

When starting threads, please be aware that Muse don't like the official messageboard being used to discuss their personal lives. If you really wish to do so, go and use Muselive. And don't forget to click on a few of their advertising links to keep them going.

Please think about this. Thanks!!

I think she's just looking out for the interests of journalism as a whole. Which is fair enough but I don't think most people care enough to bother to change the way they do things.

I'm a journalist myself - I should care but I don't really
