New BBCode: source

Postby MUTU » Wed Jan 30, 2013 12:18 pm

When you post news and would like to include a source for a paragraph you wrote (eg some transfer news), enclose the text in a [source=url][/source]

Eg:

[source=http://www.tz-online.de/sport/fussball/fc-bayern/fc-bayern-guardiolas-berater-muenchen-2697766.html]Guardiola's agent was spotted in Munich![/source]

I tend to like the simple 'URL' feature more.
This will be useful if I quote a complete paragraph but for that I prefer to use 'Quote'.

However, if you're providing 'Source' as a different choice then I would like to suggest to change the font color/style of the quoted text or may be modify it so it appears as quoted so that it is more identifiable as a newsitem.

But it's not necessarily a quote. Someone may do an English summary of a German article.

^ But but it's still a form of news/report. I am suggesting the change so that such posts would be more identifiable and differentiated from someone's general topic related post.

I'm noticing a lot of users either not using this BBCode or else using it incorrectly. I've seen a lot of people do this:

This text is backed up by a source [source=http://www.bayernforum.com][/source]

The correct way to put it is to put in the text in between the opening and closing tags, e.g.:

[source=http://www.bayernforum.com]This text is backed up by a source[/source]

In the next post I will show how both of these examples show up.

I'm also noticing an increasing amount of incorrect use of this. It's almost irrelevant really, especially because the source and URL codes are similar in function, but it does annoy me just a tiny bit, so I decided to post it. ;)

When quoting all or part of an article, summarising/paraphrasing it, ideally one would use the [source] code.

Example:
Borusse just admitted that he is a Bayern fan on BayernForum.com [source]


When not doing so, the [URL] code is usually a better choice.

Example: I've been waiting to read this headline my whole life.

PS: Sorry Borusse :P

Yeah, I noticed as well.

But one thing, there's no facebook above this text box. We have all kind of tools, like dailymotion, formation, localtime=, source=, spoiler, tweet, youtube, but there's no facebook.

I noticed from you my friend when you recently posted Robben's FB status. I didn't know before you posted that there's an option to post that as well.
