Thread Name: Netiquette for linking to DT lyrics?
Subject: RE: Netiquette for linking to DT lyrics?
Hi, Lesley - I'm sure Dick Greenhaus will come in and let you know his "druthers" about posting lyrics from the database (I'll bet he'll say that's fine-and-dandy) but it's not a good idea to link to individual songs in the database - a new version of the database is posted twice a year, and the URLs for all those songs change. I post a lot of links here in the forum to songs in the database. Many of those links seem to survive the changes in the database, and I don't know why - maybe that's a result of some of Max's magic. Maybe Max can advise you on how to post stable links to songs in the database.
