It’s interesting that you signed up...A year or two ago, I was banning members from Documenting Reality, since every time we posted something to the CPdB it would be reposted to your thread the next day. Since Documenting Reality is behind a paywall and our site isn’t, that was rather annoying.

I hope you would consider just linking to our CPdB in future rather than pulling stuff out and then basically making money out of it.

Anyhow, welcome.

And you really think they changed?

TFL is a welcome source to complete your database indeed.

Yeah but to try to screenshot each photo from 4000 entries, which have already been identified and sorted in chronological order would be utterly ridiculous, when you could just copy/paste a direct link.

Benefit of the doubt. Let's wait before we're prejudging.

@PTRACER: You wouldn't have to screenshot every entry.

I have never been to this website nor posted any picture from here. Most all of the stuff I have posted to DR I have had on my computer for 15+ years

I cant speak for any other DR members

In fact I signed up here for the discussion about motorsports as my collection of crash photos is so massive that its a shock when I ever come across something that I have never seen

I come here in good faith and im not some content thief

If you guys don't see it that way then I wont post here

Personally I’d rather we work together than work against each other. We’ve been collecting crash photos here for 15 years too now. I hope that we have something you can add to your collection and equally you can share some new stuff with us!

It was obviously not yourself, but someone who was posting in your DR thread who was copying everything over as soon as it was posted here. If DR was a free website, it would be a different story. We spend a LOT of free time collecting, identifying and documenting crashes for our database. So long as we can agree that won’t happen I’m happy and looking forward to having you here :bye:

If you have been collecting pics + vids for as long as you say you must have quite a bit of knowledge of these subjects
and could be a valued addition to this forum and maybe even fill in any unidentified's :thumbsup:
