few rights reserved

the contents of track7 are copyright few rights reserved instead of all rights reserved. i don’t have much reason to impose limitations on how my work is used, so instead of reserving all rights i’m only reserving a few. note that some of the contents of track7 (mainly icons) come from other sources so it’s not up to me how other people can use them. most of what i’ve used that i didn’t create myself has a license that allows for my use, but some of it i couldn’t find license info.

linking / sharing

i put things on track7 because i want other people to have access to them. if you find something interesting or useful enough that you want to share it, please do! link to or share any page of track7 however you see fit. i do not provide quick-share links you can just click to quickly share a page from track7 on facebook or twitter or whatever, but that’s because i expect that my visitors know how to copy from the address bar and paste into the social media site of their choice and that i don’t pretend to be aware of every single such site out there. to share and image or download from track7 please link to or share my page that contains the image or file download link where possible.

linking to my pages and not directly to my files is especially important for images. track7 doesn’t see a lot of traffic, which means it doesn’t cost me a lot to keep it running. if one of my images gets linked to directly from a page that does see a lot of traffic (for example, a popular forum), that means track7 needs to serve that image every time that page on the other site gets visited. enough of that (or one instance with a busy enough page) can cost me real money. that’s not to say i don’t want my images to appear on other sites, just if a lot of people are going to see it then it may help me out if you first download my image and put it up on an image hosting site.

credit

when using something from track7, don’t make it look like it’s your own work. sharing a link to a page on track7 makes it pretty clear it’s from track7, but linking directly to a download or posting an image do not. if at all possible add a link to either the page where you found it or to the track7 home page, with a statement that it comes from track7. if you used something you learned here to create something of your own then that’s something new and i’ll leave it up to you whether mentioning track7 makes sense.

i want to know

have you used something from track7? i’d love to see what you’ve done with it! this is by no means a requirement, but if you can share with me please do because i am definitely interested. mostly it’s that i’m curious, but i’m also happy to link to what you’ve done if i like it and you want me to. check my profile for ways to contact me.

stuff i didn’t make

some of the stuff on track7 was made by other people, so i don’t control the rights. the text font is rosario, header font is monda, code font is inconsolata, and icon font is fontawesome. markdown gets parsed into html by parsedown in php. jquery makes my javascript work better and knockout helps me load lots of the same type of content onto a page.
