    Patrice, please clarify this as I don't understand re: QB/facebook

    Does this or does it not allow IB to utilize posts on QB also of facebook. This is from the general terms. Thank you. I am not trying to start a problem but feel we should know exactly what the following means:

    it means exactly what it says. no need to read between the lines or hire a legal beagle to sniff out hidden clauses.

    the primary purpose of the FB page is to market/advertise the QB.
    even though there's a facebook page for the QB, the two are not linked in any way.
    what's posted on the FB page does not show up here.
    what's posted here does not show up on the FB page unless the person who maintains the FB page manually posts a link. she does link to photo posts so people can see examples of the beautiful works we share with each other here.

    It does look like the comments we make on people's QB postings are showing up on FB though. ????

    This is as clear as mud to me. I am very disturbed that our full names appear on the Quilting Board's Facebook page instead of our QB screen name if we make a comment. I enjoy commenting on the beautiful quilts on this Board, but cannot continue to do so if there is risk that my legal name will be posted on the QB's Facebook page. Until I know that my comments on this Board remain under my screen name only and not my full legal name, I will NOT post anything else to this Board.

    I agree - clear as mud and agree with the not even wanting my screen name to appear there. If I wanted to be on facebook, I'd have a facebook account. I won't say never, but honestly don't anticipate every joining FB.

    Patrice, thank you for taking the time to respond. I appreciate all that you and the mods do to keep QB up and running and keeping it a clean, non judgemental, non partisan forum.

    I had not noticed the display of full real names.

    We don't even have to provide our full real names when we register to be QB members.
    that information is nowhere in the membership database.
    To see them displayed on FB is quite alarming, I agree.

    I also had not noticed that content posted here was displayed on the FB page.
    I am not a lawyer, but I suspect this falls under "license to ... distribute, reproduce, ..., publicly perform and publicly display..."
    Still, it's an unexpected development and I can easily understand your objections.

    I have relayed this information to the person who maintains the FB page and asked that these things be corrected.

    I looked at the FB QB page and yes, there are "real" names . . . BUT if a person posts from FB, the real name shows (or whatever the person's FB name is), just as it does on other FB posts. Has anyone seen one's own real name, without posting through FB?

    the page maintainer responded quickly to our concerns.

    she confirmed that the only viewer/user comments on the page are those posted by FB users.
    they come from FB and are NOT QB content.

    i guess FB users know their real names will be made public and don't mind?
    i don't know if she can change any page settings to prevent them showing but i will ask.

    Thank you Patrice for working fast to resolve this problem. I had no idea there even was a QB/FB. Even though I am on FB only to be able to utilize other quilting data from magazines and such, it is the only way to communicate, I would prefer not to be on FB with out my knowledge.

    thanks again, you always keep good up the good work of the QB

    I believe your actions have addressed my concerns and I thank you for your quick action. I would think that your actions have made it unnecessary for this thread to continue but don't know who or how a thread is closed. Your judgement prevails...again, thanks.
