My ♥Silly♥ Art
Music Player Code

I seriously hate html, and cms, and ccs, and whatever the heck other code thingies there are. I really feel like flipping a table, this is very stressful. 

Sorry for the rambles. Trying to update my personal website and trying to make a thing for commissions and I’m not having ANY success whatsoever. None.

I might just give up on this for the night and go write fanfiction or something as stress relief. I’ve spent literally 9 hours on this stuff today and do you know what I’ve accomplished?

Nothing. Literally. 

Why is website design so incredibly stressful.

I’m so sorry people have been stealing your art! It’s things like this that make me seriously consider ending my blog sometimes :(

No! You’re the hero tumblr needs, not the one it deserves.

Really though, you’re…

I would be careful with making a list like this.
You mean well, I know, but some people might think you’re calling out people and accusing them of being thieves, whether they are or not.

We can’t forget that while some people do in fact not give a damn about sourcing, some people just don’t yet understand why it’s important, and mean no harm.

I understand that there are people who keep doing that even though they’ve been asked and even ordered to source. But still, making a list like that might not be the best idea for your sake.

Yeah, that’s why I haven’t just gone and done it- I don’t particularly want to get hate and I really don’t want to SPREAD hate.

And I wouldn’t be adding people to the list who really don’t know and mean no harm- Just people who keep doing it and have been asked not to. It would be a list that I would get several people to help me out with to make sure we aren’t just adding like, 12 year olds who really just don’t get it. 

It’s something I’ve been debating for a while because while I do think it’s something that NEEDS to happen, I’m just not sure that it’s a wise decision. There’s also the fact that it would run the risk of getting reblogged by people who just tack on people who’ve only done this a couple times on accident, or who tack on people that DO source things but don’t reblog (which is annoying but in some cases these people just don’t speak English or something or the original tumblr post is super old so they don’t know there’s already that image floating around on tumblr).

So yeah, it’s likely a bad idea, but I’d like more feedback from people. Maybe there’s another solution.

Really though, you’re awesome. The fandom’s artists need you around, you help get us out there and we ALL appreciate it SO MUCH. You’re seriously great.

I’m actually thinking about making a masterpost with a list of art thieves within the fandom- People who are continual offenders of taking FT art and posting it without sourcing it, or who just source it to WeHeartIt or something. And if you find any more thieves, just reblog it and add them in. That way people would know who to NEVER reblog from, and who to unfollow in some cases.

The only problem is that I’m not sure if this is something that’s allowed on tumblr? And I don’t want to be mean, but there are a few of these people out there who, despite my continual attempts in asking them to knock it off, KEEP. DOING. IT. They either don’t respond or say “Well I don’t know the source” or “I don’t like to reblog”.

If you don’t know the source, don’t post it. It’s REALLY simple.  

What are everyone’s thoughts on this? Is this something anyone would be willing to help out with? Is it something that SHOULD and CAN be done? I wouldn’t just add people who have only done it a couple of times, this would be a list of repeat offenders of art theft/reposting.

Edit: In said masterpost I would also have links to posts that explain how to source. It wouldn’t just be a hate-post- It would hopefully educate some people.

Gonna have to start putting big ugly watermarks all over my stuff.

My art is starting to get stolen, people are cutting the watermarks off the bottom/top, so I’m gonna from now on upload my stuff in small sizes and with big watermarks on the center. It sucks, I don’t wanna do that, but I have to now and it’s really irritating.

Also, tumblr- Source your goddamn art posts and reblog, don’t repost. Jesus, it’s not that hard.
