    DefaultPetguide.com

    So, is JL owned by this site now? I checked out the site - they have a large number of forums linked but not much actual content. And - they have a bit on Labradoodles that strikes me as providing legitimacy to these mixed breed dogs.

    And nothing that I could find on who is behind the site.

    Anyone else check it out?

    I think Colin said they (it?) is our new administrator. As long as we don't have to go island hopping again...

    I checked it out. It was strange. When I clicked the Labradors.com one it took me to a forum site. I clicked the tab for Labrador photos & it has pictures of labs from the forum. My labs picture was on the first page but it is an old one because Molly was in it too. Then when I clicked on forums it brought me to the JL forum site. Not sure what Petguide.com is.

    I thought it might be a bit fishy, a "commercial" site as our administrator. I thought our administrator was an individual, with an "Asian" sounding name. Could this be a scam of some sort?

    I'd really like to be informed if our posts or pictures are going to wind up being used on this site. I realize that they do appear in the Just Labradors newsletter and page, but they seem to be a little more in line with the philosophy of this board.

    I thought the pics were our siggy pics, or ones we submited for calendars.
    I guess if we submit them for calendars they can use them in another album. Click on the pic and says calendar.

    There is a pic of Sandys Tank and Georgie another of yours is a few pages in. I enjoyed seeing the pics.

    No scam I'm afraid . petguide.com now have control of the site apparently although neither myself or Garth have been officially informed.

    We are no longer in private ownership as far as I can make out so Yung may no longer be on the scene.

    OK....I'm sure I'll be told if I'm wrong here, but I was under the impression that anything without a copy right that is put on the internet is pretty much fair game. Pictures as well as text. I'm not saying it's right or moral, I'm just saying I was under that impression. One of the reasons I am careful about what pictures I put on line.

    True. It's called the "public domain" & anything you put out there about yourself is fair game no matter how private you think it is. I think it was Instagram? that was embroiled in a controversy recently when peoples personal photos were being used commercially without their permission. They used the same argument. I never heard how it ended though. This is why my facebook profile is such a brilliant work of fiction.

    I have emailed Yung asking for an explanation. Col, see your mail.

    I have petguide on my phone. It is basically an app that smart phone users can use to get on pet forums they are on. You can post pictures and stuff from your phone and it is much easier then using the actual internet button on the phones. I don't see jl on there though just one for labradoodles. It has fish rats German shepherds and a few other breed forums that you can click on and it takes you to the forum. It isn't the same set up but same forums ect...
