The Pixabay credits require that you include the artist/stock provider's username for all sites including pexels, pixabay, and unsplash. Each item (horse, background, additional stock) all need to be identified by provider and website separately. So, even tho the BG & horse both came from the same site, they need to be credited separately.
hmm... thats confusing - are forum pic rules different from those on the horses pages? I basically found pixabay when the drop down menu changed that says "Image sourced from pixabay.com (no credit required)
The only difference between horse pics and forum pics would be that if it's an image you took yourself, it doesn't have to be credited anymore.
So, say you're posting a pic of your dog or horse directly on the forums you no longer have to put "Turn@Ponybox.com" on the images.
Crediting individual stock providers isn't really a new thing, but including the stock providers' usernames for sites like pexels, unsplash, etc is new. It's to help moderators check stock more easily and make sure all provider rules are being followed.
Ok Turn. The clarify the rules on the horse page. You dont have to credit Pixabay if you use a picture form there directly(no editing). How ever if its used in a Manip we need to be able to check where it came from and find it.
