Few members/admins are providing (outsourced) fine images of station boards / locos / stations etc and these are appreciated by others too. But this outsourced information far exceeds their own contribution to the site. There must be some rationale between number of blogs to the credit of individual member and number of contribution of others being copy/pasted under one's own name. Say one member has only 100 blog to his credit, but he outsource 2000 blogs. Downloading from a website and merely saying courtesy : ...... ...... ........ . Is it ethical ? Earning WAH WAH WAH for the work executed by others. I am totally confused.

AFAIK and many other may agree with me, a railfan does not need leave all his day-to-day activity and do railfanning throughout life. Railfanning is passion, not profession. It doesn't require full-fledged commitment towards railfanning and other related activities.
Here, at IndiaRailInfo, we are doctors, engineers, technicians, students, housewives, businessman, and blah blah. We don't get much time to indulge in railfanning. Some find it relaxing collecting beautiful pics and sharing it with others here at IRI (with due credit to the original poster), some love browsing youtube videos of trains and stations, some love to dig out useful information over google related to railways. That doesn't mean that they wan to earn WAH WAH WAH for the work executed by others. What if their work in not promoted/publicised for free as here at IRI ? Who will credit WAH
