  1. Clarification about the website linked above: The owner of the site does make mention on her site that the original patterns are public domain. Since she has made this claim, I am going to assume she has done her homework and has verified that. Should a copyright holder come to me with information that some of the patterns are indeed still under copyright, I'll at that point remove the link to this site.
  2. I have had to remove the screenshots of images from the blog as well as the link to the blog in question, as it does appear to be one of those questionable blogs that posts copyrighted photos and pattern charts without permission from the copyright holders. (At the very least, I was unable to find any claims they made that they had permission to do so.) We are very happy to provide assistance with patterns, but we must do so while respecting copyright law. That means please only post photos that you have taken yourself. Don't upload photos or screenshots from other sites. Provide us with a link to the page or pattern in question. If it's on a legitimate site, there's no problem. Unfortunately, if it's on something posted on a site like the one in question, we may not be able to allow the link. And don't worry: Most sites are legitimate.
  3. Since the original poster's question has been answered, I am going to close this thread. If anyone wants additional information on why we do not allow links to patterns in the Wayback Machine, you can consult our Terms of Use for more information. You're also welcome to send us a message, and we'll talk with you privately about our site policies.
  4. Lydia, welcome to Crochetville! I'm sorry for the late response, but I need to address your comment about sharing patterns. We encourage all our members to share links to patterns or information to where they were published. However, we cannot allow sharing of copies of patterns, as that would be copyright infringement, which is both against the law and a violation of our forum policies. Hopefully, you meant that you like to share information about patterns, and your wording just wasn't quite clear. i hope you have fun looking through all the information on our site.
  5. As Kathy stated, sites like this genially do not have permission from copyright holders to distribute all of those patterns. I have edited the original post to remove the links to the site in question.
  6. I have had to remove the symbol chart of the pattern included in the original final post to check mplynwith our forum copyright policies. These policies state members can only post patterns or pattern charts if they are the copyright owner (generally the designer or publisher). These policies help keep our site and members clear of any legal issues related to copyright infringement.
  7. I am going to close this thread, since we keep getting requests for the pattern (many of which I gave already deleted), despite all the information several of us have shared about why we can't help with a pattern source.
  8. The patterns should all still be here in the forum. These links just no longer redirect. I will need to take the time to search the forum and find the current correct links for them all. Unfortunately, I'm not sure when I will be able to do that. Crochetville is moving in to studio space this week, then I have a big local event next Saturday, and our grand opening the Saturday after that. If any forum members have time to search out good links, if you could post them in the other thread I would be most appreciative. I'll update the first post as soon as I possibly can.

  10. Linda, try clearing your browser's cookies and cache to see if this fixes the problem. If the problem continues, please post the following information: Link to the thread in which you were posting Type of device (computer, laptop, tablet, phone) Operating system and version Browser and version This isn't happening for me, so I'll have to see what might be causing it for you.
  11. If you click on the magnifying glass next to the search bar at the top of a forum page, it will bring up the advanced search option. You can enter all sorts of search parameters to help you narrow down your search.
  12. We used to have one option for showing who was online and a separate option for displaying what they were doing. We had it set to show who was online, but keep everyone's activity private. This is no longer possible. We can either show who is online and what they're doing on the forum OR show none of it. We also believe in respecting each member's privacy, so for now, I've changed that setting to turn it all off. At some point, we may be able to find a plugin that will let us display who is currently logged in. If not, that information isn't really vitally important, although it is nice for admins to know. We will continue to show what areas Guests are viewing, since nobody can tell who is which guest.That's still anonymous.
  13. Donna and I both have iPhones, so we tried to duplicate what you're seeing. When we click that menu bar icon, all the options appear on the right side of the phone screen. If you click an option to go down to a deeper level, everything shifts over and stays on the right-hand edge of the phone, with no need for scrolling to see anything. We did this with both the regular iPhone Safari browser and Chrome. This may be a function of Android-based phone software, we aren't sure. However, we would prefer that the ads not be cut off and causing issues for anyone on a mobile phone. We will need to spend some time researching how to show one size ad for computers and a different, smaller ad for mobile devices that will fit completely within the display screen. We'll see what we can do!
  14. The "Report Post" link is grayed out, but if you click within a specific post to select it, the link will turn blue. At least, that's what happens on my iPad.
  15. Sharon, I've moved her topic to the correct area, so I'm going to merge this thread into the original one. It's better if we move topics that are in the wrong place to the correct place. If anyone ever notices something in the wrong place, just use the report button and let us know about the problem. We'll Mbe happy to move a discussion topic to the right location.
