Actually under EU rules you don't, as long as you're linking and the rightsholder has shared the picture freely on the internet. But credit is always good, from a moral point of view. Smile

Did some exploring in the Admin toolbox yesterday looking for a gallery. Got a bit distracted by all the shiny things, but I think a gallery can be added without too much trouble. Will have to take a closer look though to see how it actually looks.

Blue: It's more the actual legwork of tracing down the veggies that 'worries' me. Tractability of veggies and fruit is important you know. Wink

{{{And with the veggies being a bit on the naguhty side, it doesn't hurt to be well on the safe side of the copyright issues, with the forumotion rules in mind. Cool }}}

I thought it was more like... concerning hobbits.

Admins have been living and farming in the four Farthings of the Shire for many hundreds of years. Quite content to ignore and be ignored by the world of the Big Folk. iddle Earth being, after all, full of strange creatures beyond count. Admins must seem of little importance, being neither renowned as great warriors, nor counted amongst the very wise. ...In fact, it has been remarked by some that Admins’ only real passion is for food. A rather unfair observation as we have also developed a keen interest in the brewing of ales and the smoking of pipeweed. But where our hearts truly lie is in peace and quiet and good tilled earth. For all Admins share a love of all things that grow. And yes, no doubt to others, our ways seem quaint. But today of all days, it is brought home to me it is no bad thing to celebrate a simple life.

That "Admins have been living and farming in the four Farthings of the Shire for many hundreds of years." Shrugging

They are but a simple folk, fond of pipeweed and ale, but lovable all the same Nod

Question



The book version would be like this:

Admins are an unobtrusive but very ancient people, more numerous formerly than they are today; for they love peace and quiet and good tilled earth: a well-ordered and well-farmed countryside was their favourite haunt. They do not and did not understand or like machines more complicated than a forge-bellows, a water-mill, or a hand-loom, though they were skilful with tools. Even in ancient days they were, as a rule, shy of ‘the Big Folk’, as they call us, and now they avoid us with dismay and are becoming hard to find. They are quick of hearing and sharp-eyed, and though they are inclined to be fat and do not hurry unnecessarily, they are nonetheless nimble and deft in their movements. They possessed from the first the art of disappearing swiftly and silently, when large folk whom they do not wish to meet come blundering by; and this art they have developed until to Men it may seem magical. But Admins have never, in fact, studied magic of any kind, and their elusiveness is due solely to a professional skill that heredity and practice, and a close friendship with the earth, have rendered inimitable by bigger and clumsier races.
