    Threads without a source may be deleted at any time.*
    Having to ask for a source adds unnecessary posts and wastes everyone’s time.

    Note to Posters: A link to an online source is not enough – you must write out your source (examples below).* You may also add a link, but links to sites that require a subscription or membership are not permitted.

    Note to Others: If the source is not named, report it using the triangle in the lower-left corner of each post.

    Source is required for three reasons:
    • Copyright Issues – Identifying the source helps prevent copyright problems for WordReference.
    • Better Answers – Knowing the source helps members give more focused answers.
    • Forum RuleRule 4.
