To everyone who nominated posts for the Top 100 Sri Lankan blog posts book project:

Would you be interested/willing to grant permission to have your nominating comment(s) appear in the Top 100 Sri Lankan blog posts book (should it ever get published). Yes, it is a seemingly trivial thing but after brushes with a certain newspaper editor’s attitude to copyright I thought I’ll be fussy. I think some of you might already have some sort of Creative Commons License on your sites but I don’t have the time sort through all that.

To simplify things, just leave a comment in this post granting permission for your nominating comments to be used. The same permission is need if you wrote a lengthy nominating post like T‘s.

Note that the aim of the book (should it ever get published) is to donate the proceeds. So consider your contribution as part of the donation. Your permission of course only needs to cover the Top 100 Sri Lankan blog posts book project.

I’ll bang out a post aimed at the nominees later. 

Thank you for all your nominations. Please keep them coming.

  1. I RD, of RD Towers, hereby grant permission for my nomination comments to be published in the T100SLBPBP.

    I believe that good things will come from this book project and would like this to be recognised.



  2. how do u plan on knowing if the real author is the one who’s giving permission.. (in the case of non-wordpress blogs…)


  3. ok do you want to publish the comments that were in response to the posts itself or the comments nominating the posts? i dont really see the point in publishing the latter.. unless you want to have them as a sort of into.. but i think the comments for the posts itself may be good to publish 😀 neways, you have MY permission..


  4. RD, TheWhackster, Vindi & jack: Thank you 😀

    Acromantula: By comparing the email address linked with the original comment with the email in the comment giving the ok. Failing that, I’ll send a quick email. All this assuming that the idea ever goes to press.


  5. I’d be more than happy to allow you to publish my posts written under the Childof25 pseudonym. I’m trying to find time to recommend posts for you as well…hope this is still an active project:)
