Sudden Death Draft Loser:

--- Quote from: scouser102002 on August 10, 2018, 12:53:50 pm ---It shouldn't be about the publication/paper but more about the author/journalist.

For e.g. a Dominic King article in the Daily Mail is going to be far more reliable that a random journalist's article in the Mirror.

Author/journalist not the publication.

It's not about the reliability of an article in the case of the Daily Mail, it's the fact that it is a fascist rag

Sudden Death Draft Loser:

--- Quote from: Sudden Death Draft Loser on August 11, 2018, 08:17:37 pm ---Still seeing far too many links to Daily Mail articles.

--- Quote from: Hinesy on September  4, 2012, 06:11:34 pm ---RAWK has a policy of accepting certain media sources when starting threads on news heard or written about the club.

This list is not exhaustive but gives clear guidence to what's allowed and not.

Twitter sources are not allowed unless from an official site and really, unless its the madness of the Transfer Forum, you shouldn't be starting a new thread based on a tweet anyway.

Clearly as Jon Hall's thread in this board states, quoting from the Sun will get you banned/muted at least and is just a no-no.

This is the list as posted in the Transfer Forum when open:

I'd like to add
Talksport Radio to that list.

Also the Times has a paywall so quoting reports from there is likely to infringe copyright and get us into trouble.

What about, and/or anything by Melissa Reddy? Are they acceptable sources?

John C:
Melissa Reddy is a highly credible and respected journalist so using her as a source on this site is fine.
