Of course it relates to the word “should”. Giving those details also conflicts a little with the wish to not give actual details of maybe sensitive species
Sometimes a person may not know the date and place that they were taken, for example I would not have that detail for most of my old photos of birds.
(Mostly my bird photos are from the 1970s.)

Subject: [canberrabirds] List manager message incl suggested new list rule
Greetings. From time to time I post to the list the set of rules or protocols under which the list operates, as a reminder. Please see below.
All seems to be going well with the list, many thanks to everyone for your courtesy towards other subscribers, and for the mutual support provided via the list.
Reflecting the fact that much of the list's content is photographs, and that many have long-term value and copyright in them is owned by the photographer, it has been suggested that we add another list rule (perhaps confirming a customary practice may be a
better way of putting it): all photographs posted to the list should include a clear statement as to the date and place that they were taken, and the name of the photographer.
What do you think about this suggested addition to the list rules?
Best wishes for good birding in 2016.
