"Water is a third oxygen so we should be fine"

What an apt strapline for the latest offering...

Perhaps they were too busy with Hidden Earth posters to maintain their website

Quite by coincidence I received this email today from a gmail account:

Quote from: Dankness Below
Dear Duncan,

We run a satirical caving website called www.danknessbelow.co.uk

It may or may not have escaped your attention that we published the (out of date, we believe) Draenan survey on the back of a spoof Hidden Earth timetable.

This was partly because of a penchant for mischief but also partly because it's a hassle to find surveys, especially if you aren't in a club and don't have a fancy library. To that end we have a small collection:

[link removed at poster's request]

If you see anything that needs adding please let us know.

Tangents aside, If you were us, and you wanted a proper Draenan survey, and you didn't care about copyright issues, where would you go and who would you speak to?

Best wishes

Dankness

The link points to an impressive collection of cave surveys and other copyright material obtained from a variety of caving club libraries.

Call out the instigators
Because there's something in the air
We've got to get together sooner or later
Because the revolution's here, and you know it's right
And you know that it's right

We have got to get it together
We have got to get it together now
Lock up the streets and houses
Because there's something in the air
We've got to get together sooner or later
Because the revolution's here, and you know it's right
And you know that it's right

We have got to get it together
We have got to get it together now
Hand out the arms and ammo
We're going to blast our way through here
We've got to get together sooner or later
Because the revolution's here, and you know it's right
And you know that it's right

We have got to get it together
We have got to get it together
Now

The Eldon voted at an AGM a couple of years ago to make all our surveys open source. 

Seems little point not sharing the information freely as it would surely hamper the development and exploration of systems.

Not that I condone the sharing of copyright material of course.

Sam,

Shouldn't you as a moderator, 

remove the link to the copyrighted material in Duncan Price's post above?

Otherwise you are condoning the sharing of copyrighted material

Beardy is quite right and I am infringing copyright by posting the link to copyrighted material hosted without permission on the internet.  I really ought to have known better and would be grateful if the moderators could redact the link in question.  Sorry. :ang:

Duncans report didn't explicitly ask for the link to be removed.

It just stated out that the link points at some copyrighted material.  As did yours Beardy.  ;)

Now removed as requested (Mark beat me to it).

Surely a hyperlink is just text, if people choose to click on then that's their choice and risk. Down with this censorship ;)

Dear UKCaving

We at Dankness Below would like to apologize for the recent downtime of the website and general lack of updates. We have unfortunately been the victim of a vicious DDOS attack, originating from an IP address somewhere in the Bristol area. We have good reason to assume that this is from our rival publication, Blackness Underneath (or whatever it's called).  We have upgraded our security systems so we expect it to be several months before Dimness Further Down (or whatever it's called) is successful again. New content will be available soon.

We will not let the terrorists win.

Seems the Media Moguls have got bored, and opened up another social media outlet.  :coffee:


(Clue the outlet could be £500,000 poorer in the near future.)

NORMAL SERVICE HAS RESUMED

We at Dankness Below bring you breaking news regarding Ogof Dreary and the real reason why the new entrance was filled in.

http://www.danknessbelow.co.uk/2018/10/rogue-danknessbelow-staff-fill-in-draenan-entrance-to-prevent-spread-of-weaponised-bats-to-the-north

We appreciate you may already have a view on this story, informed in part by the illustrious publication that is the BCA newsletter (read by over 12 people!), but here at Dankness Below we take a less biased view and will not try to sell you a book, so please give us a chance.

We dont offer a subscription service, however one of our under 50s on the team (youths) has set up a "facebook" page. They have advised us to employ the strategy of "treat them Meme, keep them keen", so we are running a competition for the CZECH forum where we try to get you, our readers, to produce our content for us. The super fantastic ultimate prize, we have been assured, is worth at least a fraction of the UKCaving one. However we do promise not to get pissy about it when you don't mention us, after your deserved victory.

I would send you a link, but I dont know how to do it.
