Is it okay to post a Google doc? Or against the rules?
Posted by Crimm on Wednesday, May 01, 2019 7:23 AM

Morning,

Sometime in the relatively near future, I am going to start airbrushing for the first time. To practice the whole process, I was going to prime and paint some spoons. I was going to catalogue them somewhere central that could be looked at for reference, both for myself and others. I figured something like a Google doc would be ideal, because it would always be up to date when clicked on. When I do it, is it okay to post a link to the document in the forums? I didn't see anything in the Rules and Etiquette that covered this sort of thing specfically.

I think your concern might be how to segregate the doc. from anything else on any google platform you use. That's straight forward, but you need to avoid access to any other google doc.s.

Your idea would be very helpful.

Oh yeah no I know how to post just the document without giving everyone access to all my stuff, haha. I just wasn't sure if it was okay to post links to external content. Thank you.

My paint selection is certainly not as large as some folks (some of you have like 300 different bottles!) so I may try to set up permissions for people to add their own photos to the document as well, but I'm getting ahead of myself.

Every photo you see in these posts is a link to external content (image hosting) so it seems it would be ok for you to do this.  However, I would first check with one of the moderators to be sure.

Should I message one of them directly?

Yes, they may never read this thread.

I can't see any reason why this would not be acceptable. However, I'm not a moderator. Send a PM to enash (Elizabeth Nash), she is a moderator.

The idea has been moderator-approved, so hopefully soon I'll get my space set up and start figuring it all out. Thanks all.
