Other similar websites have been closed down for having links on them, and the various rightsholders and authorities are likely watching this place and others ready to shut these sites down if they go too far.
I think you may not be using the word “literally” correctly there. Also “there’s no risk” - the whole site would indeed be at risk. I apologize if that appears harsh.
I mean, are there other public sites like this one out there that have links to thousands of projects out in the open?
Though I will defer to the mods, other people who run the place, and those who have contributed to the site for many years such as Chainsaw and CatBus.
If other renowned editors put links up on their sites or facebook that is the risk they take on there. I am very happy that no links are allowed on here. We want this place, this creative community, this library of information to be around for a long long time to come, not taken down due to people wanting it easy and wanting links everywhere, I think?
