Because some people in #aion still don’t seem to understand:

If you want to share something that you didn’t make, either include credit or don’t post it

If it’s on tumblr, reblog it. The reblog system makes it so easy to share things, the only reason that you’d go through the extra steps of saving and re-uploading everything into a new post is to erase the creator’s name and replace it with yours. 

If you found it off-tumblr, the best thing to do is first contact the creator about wanting to share it. If they say no, don’t repost it. Post a link to their page containing it.

Sometimes getting in contact isn’t possible, but in either case, the location you found it should be included in your post. (The same post, visibly- none of those stupid nonexistent easter-egg credit links hidden around the corner and behind your left ear.) Tumblr has a content source system for this exact reason. Use it.

If no other source is entered there or in the post itself, the content is automatically attributed to you. It’s synonymous with claiming ownership of the content and everyone who sees the post will be under the impression that you created it. This is also how copyrights are claimed when artists/writers/etc first publish their work online. This is why people get upset. When you do this with something that isn’t yours, it’s theft. Plagiarism. It’s not appreciation or respect. This applies when sharing things anywhere: any forum, blog, or website.

Tumblr can and will remove content you post that isn’t yours. If the creator didn’t want their work reposted, even with credit, they can ask for it to be removed.

If reposting happens to you, you can report it here: https://www.tumblr.com/dmca

They’re quick about it, and it does extend to edits. It does not extend to toon remodels or Photoshop actions/presets.

Had a shit day but

HOLY FUCK I GOT ACCEPTED INTO THE ANIMATION PROGRAM.

;____;

I’m so happy. I can finally get to working on my major and working on my artwork.

If you’re going to help your legionmates, be fucking clear and honest.

If you don’t want to run something, say so.

If you don’t want to help anyone, even when the lowbies or members that just hit 65 rarely ask you for help, then say so.

If you’d rather run EB with 23 other people all day and form a tiny clique in legion, then do so. Make it clear that you aren’t going to be as helpful as you claim to be.

Don’t beat around the bush or get pissy when the legion can’t run on your schedule. Don’t get pissy when someone asks for help either.

Just fucking speak up. No misunderstandings. Nada.

last night my friend hosted an animation party and screened Wreck-It Ralph, RotG and Paranorman and she prepared these super amazing themed treats (esp. the chocolate/peanut butter pudding with oreo cookie crumbles and peanut cookie gravestones for Paranorman it wAS AMAZEBALLS )

I broke the trifecta by bringing a homemade strawberry/blackberry pie but she assured me it works for Sugar Rush and it was v. well received by the other guests wwww I’m so happy (the crust had torn when I rolled it out and it was hideous I was very upset)

and then I FINALLY SAW PARANORMAN FOR THE FIRST TIME I CRIED A LOT LIKE I SERIOUSLY HAD A KNOT IN MY THROAT SEVERAL TIMES WHICH PHYSICALLY HURT

AND THE SCORE IS SO SUBLIME GOSH “NORMAN’S WALK” ESP IS SO BLITHELY (…haha!) SUBURBAN AND PEACEFUL YET SO SO SAD AND I’VE LISTENED TO IT AT LEAST 3 TIMES NOW AND I MAY/MAY NOT HAVE LISTENED TO IT LAST NIGHT IN BED AND LIT. CRIED MYSELF TO SLEEP

THIS MOVIE TOUCHED ME AT A DEPTH OF SOUL I DID NOT KNOW EXISTED

also I want a Paranorman video game, it would be part sleuthing part survival horror and “witch sight” is a power I can activate in certain areas to witness past events and get clues, I WANT TO PLAY THIS GAME

you know, i was really excited about assassin’s creed unity, but then the developers just started shitting from their mouth about how hard it would have been to make female playable characters and now i’m just like… so indifferent??? i am in no rush to purchase this game anymore. cool features and all.
