  1. It should kinda be common practice to credit things when you take them from other sites. I was interested in this eye chart and wanted to find out where it came from, but I had to do a reverse image lookup to find the site who made it because you didn’t say. They deserve a credit for creating the content you’re using here… and there’s lots of cool stuff at their site that other spider rescuers can check out. I use the forum there sometimes and they’re very nice and helpful people.

    • D: I’m sorry! This is an old site…but still, I should have credited them. I will do so when I come by and edit the entire site (it is scheduled for a maintenance). Well anyways, sorry again and I’ll definetly get it up.
