There is original article written as a message on the forum one of the users. At the bottom of forum pages it says "quoting information from the forum is allowed only with the reference to the source (forum)". Immediately, I did not notice somehow
So, this article I liked it and I wanted her to skopipastit to your website/blog or somewhere else on the Internet. I write a PM to the author, is it possible to use information from his article to other resources by signing of course, who is the author. Get a positive response.

And now I'm on this forum noticed the PostScript at the bottom about the citation and a link to the source.

Should I (if to be honest we all do) to write the link to the forum thread? In fact, I personally the author asked whether it is possible to use the text... If I just no one asking copied the information, then of course it would be necessary to leave a link.

The forum is just a platform for posting information. Such as, for example, LiveJournal, Twitter, Vkontakte.
If the administrator is not acquired article user, respectively, it does not have the rights to it and can be free to quote/use. There are also examples, when the administration on the forum pays for the material.In this case, the copyright may belong to the administration of the forum.
\r
Also, from a copyright law need the following:
\r"Are not objects of copyright:
1. official documents (laws, judgements, other texts of legislative, administrative and judicial character) and official translations thereof;
2. state symbols and signs (flags, emblems, orders, banknotes and other state symbols and signs);
3. works of folk art;
\r4. reports on events and facts that have informational character."

\r
Forum posts fall under 4-point, so to speak, the public.
\r
So if the theme itself has no marks, indications of the type "written at the request of the administration, all rights belong to the administration", feel free to take material.
Besides, do not forget that the text still belongs to the author and he can also post it anywhere without asking the admins of the forum.

I think that you need. Because it is important that not only the rights of the author, but the right forum for this text. And you find it difficult to make a link to the forum?

Signature in the basement most of the websites have a decorative character. So post safely — because the author gave you permission. In addition, you can categorically say that the article received from the author, not the forum, but it's a circus. it should be easier (I imagine).

Forum member when registering always agree (otherwise register) with the rules. This agreement is a public offer. So, here, among the rules could be that the author all rights to their publication reports the administration of the forum.

Besides, if you refer to the morality ("to be honest if it all to do"), then imagine yourself in the place of the owner of the forum will consider whether you honest copy-paste from your forum without linking to you? After all, the forum still need to create the conditions so that the participants wanted to write a worthwhile article (and it appears to be about this article). Even pure question of morality — do we need to respect the work of others.
