Major Discovery: BotW’s Adventure Log = Link’s Diary?!

SERIOUSLY.

(Spoiler Alert)

At this point, our beloved game Breath of the Wild has been out for around half a year already. If you have played the game, you are probably very familiar with the Adventure Log feature in BotW that helps you keep track of all your missions and side quests. Or else its pretty much impossible to remember if you were catching chickens for this guy or collecting weapons to show that kid who’s boss.

But here’s the thing- Have you ever thought about the Adventure Log’s origin? Who or what is helping Link keep track of his missions?

If your answer is the Sheikah Slate or the “system”, which is what I’ve always thought, I’m gonna go ahead and assume you own an European/American copy of the game. Because apparently, in the Japanese version of the game, there is evidence that shows that LINK is the one who wrote the adventure log to keep track of his own journey.

“Ok… So what?”

So Link wrote the Adventure Log. Big deal. It’s not like this is gonna change the gameplay in any way.

…True. However, Link didn’t JUST record his missions in the Adventure Log. According to the Japnese version, Link would often type up some of his own thoughts and comments on what he was doing aside from his current objectives. This could give us a deeper insight of Link’s character.

Here’s an example:

This is what shows up after you complete The Hero’s Sword quest. The content of the two versions are very similar, but notice the use of “自分” (myself) in pic 1. This is evidence that the adventure log is written by Link, who’s talking about himself in first person narrative, instead of “the system”. With that in mind, the Japanese version can be translated to:

(I) Finally retrieved the legendary Master Sword. (I) Don’t know if it’s just an illusion, but the sword itself seems to be delighted about this.

To this moment, Princess Zelda is still inside Hyrule Castle, fighting to suppress the Calamity.

She is still holding on to the faith in me, believing that I will definitely come for her…!

But with the power (that I have) now, can she really be saved (by myself)…?

You see what they did there?

The English version replaced every first person pronoun Link has used with “you”!

As someone who owns an American copy, and has never set the system language to Japanese, I was absolutely SHOCKED when I was told about this (credits at the end).

Remember how we could find diaries of NPCs all across Hyrule? Link’s was right under our noses this whole time!

Now that you know about this, does your adventure log seem a bit different from before?

(I) finished visiting all 13 of the locations in the old pictures. I remembered everything I’ve been through together with Princess Zelda.

In those memories (of mine), Princess Zelda always strived to complete the task burdened onto her…

Even if it’s just a moment sooner, (I) want to save her as quickly as possible

(I) want to see her smile again, with these eyes (of my own).

The translation on this one is just OFF. I can’t believe the English version completely omitted the last part, and replaced it with some kind of mission instruction.

Link has been fighting all this time to see Princess Zelda’s smile again with his own eyes.

 …*sniff*

Not to mention those side quest logs. Once you realize that all of the entries were written by Link himself, the seemingly trivial information recorded in those suddenly opens up so many more hidden sides of Link. It basically re-introduced Link as someone with normal human emotions instead of the silent hero depicted throughout the game.

The caring Link, who was worried about a girl he only met twice for putting herself in danger:

…(I) ventured inside and found part of the Royal Guard’s Series, famous among equipment collectors.

When those were shown to Parcy, the traveler at the stable, her curiosity about it seem to be provoked more than ever (by me). (I) Hope she won’t do anything reckless…


The compassionate Link, who felt glad for other peoples’ happiness:

As a sign of appreciation for bringing the town together and as compensation for the work done (by me), a hefty amount of gems that were unearthed during the town’s construction were given by Hudson (to me).

(I) wish the couple could live happily ever after.


The reckless Link, who apparently felt thrilled when he managed to knock out some monsters with his new companion:

(I) captured the giant horse in Taobab Grasslands

So that’s why. It’s indeed a really big horse. It trampled whatever kind of monster in its way with ease when it galloped. That was really cool.  

When it was brought back to Straia (by me), he was very surprised.


Link the foodie, who carefully noted down new recipes he learned along the way for future use: 

(I) brought Kiana the goat butter and hearty blueshell snail required for cooking seafood paella. She shared some of the dish (with me) as thanks!

/////Recipe/////


The playful Link, who tried to mimic the way Gorons speak- by adding “goron” at the end of every sentence- after he passed the Test of Will and became one of the bros:

……

Ah… (I) kinda want to write down Kabetta’s Bro Motto, but there’s not enough space goron?

That’s too bad goron…


The empathetic Link, who felt nervous for the guy in this side quest, then relieved when the couple finally got together:


…and… THIS:

The last line on the left is the Japanese equivalent of What the heck…

I guess the statue is a bit too weird even for our great adventurer.


Finally, we have the entry that shows up after you complete the DLC trial:

(I) finally conquered the merciless Trial of the Sword.

……

(I believe that) Princess Zelda would be quite happy about how much I’ve improved


As we all know, Breath of the Wild is a game that focuses a lot on the freedom given to the players. Even the main story line is broken down into the form of memories, waiting for the players to find. As the players venture on into the wild, they would eventually find the information they need to learn about this world. The amazing amount of details you can find about Hyrule and its people is an important reason why BotW is so attractive.

On the contrary, the info available about our protagonist is very limited. The only piece of description that directly describes Link is in Zelda’s diary, where she points out that he is a very quiet person, and that’s it for our hero.

…NOT!!

Link had always had the most extensive character description. Right under our noses.

Nintendo got us. They got us GOOD.

But now we know.

SIX months after the game’s launch.

…Better late than never.

End.


P.S.: Fun fact about BotW Link- he seems to like the sand seal game a lot. Of all the entires about racing minigames, the sand seal game is the only one where Link wrote “(I’ll) try to get a better score next time!

He’s so adorable I can’t //////

This discovery was made by a Chinese gamer @atomaruU about a week ago. To make sure that her theory is correct, she cross referenced the English version of the game, only to discover that the language is completely emotionless and robotic. Therefore, to allow more people to see who Link REALLY is, I was asked to write this post based on the Chinese article she published.

Recently found this on Facebook and it sums up my hate for people who breed these dogs perfectly.
Imgur: The most awesome images on the Internet.
By Imgur

This is AMAZING!

For those who can’t go to the link, the following is what it says:

FYI, none of this is mine. It was posted by Bilton veterinary centre, the same one as in the picture. All credit goes to them but I felt it was important to get word out about some of the breeds of dogs that are riddled with health problems. If you own a pug that’s perfectly healthy that’s cool, but it’s doesn’t change the fact that an alarming number of short nosed (almost no nosed at this point) dogs have extreme difficulty with tasks like breathing and blinking.

 "So I am going to have a rant now and I apologise in advance if this upsets anyone, but here goes.

   Last week, I managed to reduce a lovely family to floods of tears.  They had brought their new dog in to come and see me.  There was a young lady, her husband and their two children of about 8 or 9 years old and they were all already absolutely besotted with their new pet - their first dog, and they had been planning it for several years.

   The dog was a 5-month-old French Bulldog that they had picked up from a breeder about 4 weeks previously.  They were concerned that their new dog may have “a chill” as the dog had sore runny eyes,  difficulty in eating and kept making a choking sound.  They had also noticed the dog had a “funny smell” about him. As I examined the dog it became quickly apparent what was occurring and my heart sank.

  This dog was yet another increasingly popular “short-nosed” breed that was suffering horribly from a myriad of problems - all related to its poor breeding and its unfortunate anatomy. After the examination, I found that this dog had: 

 - Eyeballs too big for its eye sockets. So much so, that when he blinked, the eyelids didn’t fully cover the eyeballs.  (Imagine going out on a windy day and not being able to blink!) This had resulted in deep painful ulcers forming on both eyes that in the short term would require intensive treatment and could feasibly result in the rupture of one or both eyeballs. 

  - The bones forming the front of his face (the maxilla) were so squashed by virtue of this style of this breed (called the brachycephalics), that the soft-tissue structures of the throat are compressed and forced backwards -  obstructing his larynx.  Amongst other things, his soft palate was so elongated (relative to his skull) that it kept getting trapped over his wind-pipe.

 -His nostrils were completely occluded, so absolutely no airflow was possible through his nose.  All of his breathing had to take place through his open mouth.  This meant that whilst he was eating/sleeping he was going through bouts of asphyxiation and so would have to spit the food out or wake up and open his mouth - purely so he would be able to breathe.  This explained the “choking” sound that there were hearing all the time.  He could just manage to breathe with his mouth open, but this then exacerbated the problems with his soft palate.

 - The skin fold over the top of the nose (caused by the squashed face involuting the skin) had caused a crevice of around 2-3 cms deep, where the skin was rubbing against its self.  In this area, the skin was ulcerated and was full of liquid pus.  It was this that the owners were smelling.  This was incredibly painful for the animal and he cried every time I tried to clean it.

 -The skin around his feet, ears, armpits and groin was red raw and inflamed.   He clearly was very itchy and had been licking at these areas repeatedly - which had, in turn, made them more sore and painful.  This is very typical of a condition called “atopy” which is very common in many breeds, particularly the Bulldogs (French and English). So at this point, the shocked owners asked what needed to be done to sort him out.

  So I had to explain that he would need: 

 - Bilateral eyelid shortening surgery that would allow the dog to blink properly and prevent further ulcers from forming.  As well as long-term medication to improve the quality of his tears.

 - Complex soft tissue surgery of the back of the throat to, (amongst other things) shorten his soft palate to facilitate his breathing.

 - He would need both of his nostrils opening up so as to allow adequate air flow to be possible to allow him to breathe/exercise/eat/sleep properly.

 -He would need a “face-lift” to remove a large amount of excess skin on the front of his face, to try and open up the fold that was causing so much infection and pain.

 -He may need allergy testing, food trials, anti-inflammatories etc to try and manage the atopic skin disease that he has. 

 *He needs all of this fairly urgently.  

 *He can’t have all of this done at once and so will require several anaesthetics and complex procedures to be done over a period of time.   

*He is only 5 months old. 

*He needs all of this doing - just so that he can live a vaguely normal life.   

*HE IS SUFFERING. 

 Also - he is not insured.  It transpired that the new owners looked into insurance but the premium was so high for this breed, that they felt they couldn’t afford it.  To move forward, he would have to go to a specialist veterinary unit (sadly recently set up to deal with the increasing number of very poorly brachycephalic dogs with extreme conformational issues) and this treatment could cost upwards of £8,000 to correct.

 Once I had discussed all this with the owners - they were understandably distraught.  They had hoped for a “cute” and “cuddly” family pet that they had seen examples of spread throughout popular media.  They had no idea that these problems even existed.  Instead, they now have a much-loved dog that is miserable, has a long journey ahead of it and one that they cannot afford to have fixed.

 The family left the room in floods of tears, armed with medication that would temporarily alleviate some of the symptoms and try to make the poor little dog more comfortable.  From what I have later found out, this dog has gone to a rescue centre to be rehomed.  It may have moved away, but its problems most certainly will not have done.

 Pugs, Frenchies, English Bulldogs and Shar-Peis are amongst the breeds which are increasingly being abandoned in vast numbers as people cannot cope with their ongoing problems, illnesses and costs.  It upsets us all hugely when we see how many of the problems frequently associated with these breeds are now classed as “normal”. I will commonly hear “Oh it is normal for this breed to struggle with A, B or C”. NO IT ISN’T NORMAL!

 These trendy flat-faced breeds are some of the most expensive puppies to currently buy.  There is serious money for people who sell a litter of these puppies and so the incentive to breed is VERY high.  It must be said that there are responsible breeders who are trying to “back-breed” these types of dogs to have longer noses, smaller eyes, more open nostrils etc and try to reduce the incidence of these conditions, and these people should be applauded.  However, puppy farms and irresponsible owners are rife, and these “breeders” don’t seem to care a jot about the long-term prognosis and what the future holds for “their” breed. 

 It is also worth noting that many of these breeds are unable to give birth naturally now too (due to the shape of the puppy’s skulls) and so the mothers often go through multiple caesareans… 

 PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE STOP AND THINK before you buy.  Come and talk to US about the breeds that you are interested in - and we shall give you the whole picture.

 I am completely exhausted and totally demoralised seeing these type of problems on a daily basis.  There are enough horrible illnesses, diseases and potential accidents out there without being destined to be unwell before you are even born.

   Whilst people are still buying these dogs, people will still breed them and the problem will never go away.“

calling all hippo campus fans !!!

I’ll keep it brief:

- stop stalking the guys and their family/friends on facebook/instagram/etc.

like I get it, wowie, you love the band and feel like you have to prove that you’re super dedicated or whatever, but do it courteously. don’t go looking in places you shouldn’t and don’t be excessive about it. I saw that katya had commented on a fan account’s photo asking how they got an old photo of jake, and then stated that it was on facebook somewhere. it felt like katya was obviously a bit weirded out about old pictures getting shared around.

again, I get it! it’s cute to come across old pictures of them, sure! but what they personally don’t have publicized or out in the open on their own instagram or twitter accounts shouldn’t be getting spread around by fan accounts.

imagine if pictures of you and your friends from middle school and high school just started popping up around on the internet on fan accounts, of people who are supposed to be supporting you.

and if you have a fan account, give the people who took the videos/pictures you’re using some credit! people had to actually work to get those photo passes to take pictures or had to stand in line all day to get to the front to take that high quality video you got! please take some more things into consideration before reposting.

and I know a lot of you guys harsh out other fans for tweeting at espo every day but honestly it’s not harmful. it’s not stalking or going deep into his facebook or things that he hasn’t made public, it’s just fans showing how much they care. it’s not like they’re stalking him into a coffee shop and taking videos of him there while he’s with people (I’m still upset about the whole jake thing which I talked about already). 

also please back off julia a bit. I get that it’s cute to go to urban bean & visit her but it seems a bit weird to go there if you’re just going for the sake of hc. even though she’s connected to the band, she may not want all the overwhelming attention.

I know a lot of you are younger than the guys, and being around the same age as them I totally get why they’re backing off social media a bit. And I’m sure you guys would also be freaked out a bit if the same things were happening to you on social media.

feel free to ask me questions/ talk to me about this, it’s just something that’s been bothering me since jake left twitter and instagram

UPDATE: I took out the part about nathan’s bandcamp because I wasn’t aware that he was playing it live the other night & that he understands it’s getting shared around ! I’m really sorry if I freaked you guys out or caused any unnecessary stir

I agree the most with the first picture, but it is still a magnificent ship :)

Artwork goes to respectful owner/owners, I did not create this art nor do I own it.

First pic is

@textsfromyoungjustice , second one from @I_am_weis , the third one need help finding original artist, the fourth one was created by sherlmerl.deviantart.com/ , the fifth one was made by LittleMalory.deviantart.com/

I suggest you go check them out, they are pretty cool. I am still trying to find original artists for the pictures on this blog, since there are so many already, I would appreciate if from those of you who know where these originate from to inbox me or comment on it for the artists that are missing so I can give credit

MYOJO 06/2017 : Okamoto Keito ideal type

Someone who can determine whether something is right or wrong without being swayed by those around her and she can firmly say “This is good!” “This is not good!”. I don’t like someone who are simply agreeing with everything or someone who keep disagreeing with anything. I like someone that have their own personal opinions. ❤️Picture credit to weibo

When UAs cut Cheryl out of her own pictures, don’t credit Gigi as a picture source and remove references to her from a magazine article, I end up with the impression those accounts are more interested in the artists’ personal lives than they let on.

There is no shortage of pictures of Liam. He even posted his own selfie from the date night which makes cutting Cheryl out of her picture unnecessary and very symbolic. Not at all the act of someone, UA or individual, who doesn’t care.

WHY DO I RARELY FIND POSTS ABOUT GARETH AND LUKA?

I mean, they’re one of my few happy and adorable otps!

Have you really looked at them?

I MEAN JUST LOOK AT THEM

THEY WERE A COUPLE EVEN AT TOTTHENAM


PLEASE DON’T LEAVE ME ALONE IN THIS.
LOVE (AND SHIP) THOSE TWO CUTIES TOGETHER!

AS AN OTP, AS A BROTP, AS SINGLE PLAYERS, AS YOU WISH. JUST LOVE THEM. YAY!


(all the photos and gifs on this post aren’t mine, I’ve found them online and saved them on my pc in the last years of fangirling. You’ll understand it’s almost impossible for me saying who made them/where I took them. So yep, I don’t own any credit on them. But if you do and you want me to remove one of those pictures/gifs from the post, just write to me and I’ll do it! It’s not my intention to steal pics, really)

When you realise that there’s a certain person’s initials painted on the ceiling of Mika’s house in Miami along with the Penniman family members (▰˘◡˘▰)

By the way after some thinking I figured that the “MP” on the second beam isn’t Mika’s initials but rather his father’s.
Because Mika’s initials on his own beam are “MP Jr” (see the second pic)

If we can’t see the “MP Jr” on the picture, it means it’s somewhere else… aka on the other side of the beam where the “AD” is painted maybe? :) Meaning those two are probably sharing the same beam. :) Enjoy :)

A Paparazzo Explains How Staged Celebrity Photos Really Work
"My first instinct when seeing the pictures of Taylor and Tom is that they are definitely staged."

Thanks to an anon for the tip :-)

When The Sun released photos of Taylor Swift and Tom Hiddleston kissing (or “snogging”), the question on everyone’s mind was, Was this staged? (Also, Tom Hiddleston? Really?) To get a better understanding of how the shady world of pap setups work, Cosmopolitan.com spoke to New York City paparazzo and creator of Stupid Famous People, Justin Steffman:

Do you think the Taylor and Tom pics are staged? Why or why not?

Taylor Swift is a celebrity that won’t walk outside without perfect makeup and great fashion, and she smiles at every paparazzi to make sure they all get beautiful pictures. There is an unspoken deal between Swift and paparazzi, and her bodyguards make it clear. If we act professionally and listen to their instructions, then she will give it up and everyone gets what they want. We get nice pictures, and she looks great in the magazines. She takes an entirely different approach to paparazzi than most celebrities do. It’s all about business for her. Every time she steps outside is a new opportunity for her to look good in the magazines. Certain celebrities, like Taylor, not only accept that paparazzi are a part of the business, but they actually go out of their way to use us as a tool for publicity.

My first instinct when seeing the pictures of Taylor and Tom is that they are definitely staged. But I’m friends with the paparazzo who is credited with those images and he is one of the best in the business when it comes to capturing sneaky pictures. Taylor loves to have control, and I’m sure she absolutely hates that someone was able to catch her sharing an intimate moment with her new love interest. But like I said … if it’s a huge news story, you always have to wonder, don’t you?

Why would a celebrity ever set up and stage photos?

The biggest reason is money. But they also release photos because they want to have control of their own image.

Many setup photos include a paid product endorsement, where a photo agency works as a middleman between a celebrity and a company who has a product to sell. It could be the latest cell phone that was just released, or a food or beauty product, or something as simple as them being seen shopping at a certain retail outlet. Certain photo agencies specialize in these types of fake paparazzi photos. They usually try to make the photos look natural and candid, but in reality, the celebrity and the photographer are working together. It’s a paid photo shoot and the celebrity gets a big check. The readers of tabloid magazines and blogs have no idea!

Control is another big reason for staging photos. There are certain celebs who hate being photographed by paparazzi and they will do anything to avoid it. When your image is such an important part of your career, the last thing they want is to be photographed looking badly. Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds are a good example of a celebrity couple who hates paparazzi, but you will see nice photos of them released on a regular basis. Those photos are totally set up. When they see paparazzi in real life, they put their heads down and hide their faces — unless they are promoting something.

Another example is when there is high demand for a certain photo. When Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin’s daughter Apple was first born, they worked directly with an infamous paparazzi photographer in New York. Together, they staged the first baby photos and made them look like candid pictures, then they sold the shots to a major magazine. The pictures were rumored to sell for upward of a million dollars. The paparazzi got a cut, and they took the rest.

Kim Kardashian is the biggest example of a celebrity who releases fake paparazzi photos. Kim has a personal paparazzi who she texts regularly. This man flies around the world, going wherever she asks him to be, and they work together to produce the latest fake paparazzi pictures of her. She reviews every image before they start selling them to magazines. If they shoot on a beach, these images are heavily Photoshopped and she chooses her favorites to sell.

How frequently does this happen?

Very often. I can’t remember the last time I flipped through a tabloid or browsed a gossip blog without seeing setup shops in the mix.

How much would a staged pic like the Taylor “first official BF/GF pics” get?

Enough to put a down payment on a very nice house. Most paparazzi have heard rumors that the first shots of Taylor Swift and Jake Gyllenhaal looking cozy together on a sidewalk in Brooklyn were staged. They were shot with a long lens from a great distance, and the photographer had to put time into the job. But many people believe that his tip came from inside Taylor’s own camp.

Have you ever staged pics? Explain?

The most interesting celebrity I’ve ever worked with directly to do staged pictures was Amanda Bynes during her very public mental breakdown. She asked me to meet her at an IHOP restaurant in Harlem, of all places, and the first staged shots with her happened on the sidewalk outside. She talked a lot about how the magazines always published photos of her looking ugly and how she wanted to look beautiful. After the shoot, she deleted all of the pictures she disliked and I sent the other ones out to the magazines. A few days later, she was having a small party and wanted to do another staged shoot. Those images ended up on the cover of a tabloid as well, but it backfired when they ran them alongside a very negative (although honest) story about her unhealthy lifestyle at the time.

What are telltale signs of a staged shot?

Most of the staged shots look silly and are very obvious to a trained eye. If it’s a huge news story, you always have to wonder, don’t you?

tsuruhami  asked:

Since Disney bought Marvel, do you think there will be a chance for solo female lead movie? Disney has track record for female lead movie and Disney Princess is popular.

Yeah - you’re right. Disney does have a solid track record for female led animated films and for products aimed at women and girls.

The problem is - Disney did not buy Marvel because it needs more help with selling products to women. They have that market on lockdown. Disney bought Marvel to sell action figures to boys. (Same goes for Star Wars fyi)

Disney Swoops Into Action - Buying Marvel for $4 billion (NYTimes)

As Gail Simone puts it -

I also experienced some of this in talks with Disney right before they purchased Marvel. They asked me to develop tv ideas for them, interestingly NOT because I was female, not for a female audience, they wanted a BOY audience, and they felt I could help deliver that with good action stories. I bring this up because it’s interesting…people who are mad there’s no Black Widow film in the planning,(understandably) are upset.

But my meeting with Disney tells an interesting picture. The executive I spoke with put it very bluntly, to his credit. He said that at one time, Disney OWNED the boys’ adventure market on television. But over time, they had more and more success with programming for girls. To the point where boys actively started avoiding the Disney brand.

You think they bought Marvel and Star Wars for purely the intellectual properties, you would only be partially correct. They bought those properties to make Disney cool for boys again. To own the boys’ adventure market like they felt they already owned the market for girls’ programming.

In the sub-picture, not having a female superhero movie is a hole in the Marvel film brand, but in the bigger picture, Disney feels they own most of that market already.

So actually, Disney buying Marvel actually makes it less likely that there will be solo female movies in the future - simply because Disney wants to sell products to little boys and there is an entirely sexist and irrational fear that little boys will not watch movies or buy toys about female superheroes. Furthermore, they simply don’t care if little girls also like these heroes since they feel that they have enough of the “little girl” market already through the Disney Princess line they feel no need to cater towards that demographic. It is sad, but this thought process is why we so far only have token representation on superhero teams on the big screen and in the animated TV shows.

Thankfully, shows like Jessica Jones and Agent Carter and the recent Black Widow/Punisher Avengers Confidential show willingness to market female heroes towards the young adult audience but children is where a lot of the money is and what little boys (presumably) want is what will dictate choices in the MCU going forward. So sad. 

Thankfully comics and the MCU are quite different in their marketing strategy! Marvel comics have been making leaps and bounds in promoting their female characters lately. 

Why Marni Nixon Deserves All of the Awards

For those who enjoy movie musicals, you might recognize this woman:

Then again, you might not. 

You might recognize her in this picture though:

No? Well, she was also this woman’s voice:

And this woman’s:

And both of these women at different points:

And as this woman: 

And she sang for this movie too:

All of these movies and characters had vocals by Marni Nixon. Grandmother Fa, Eliza Doolittle, Maria and Anita, and more. Plus, she maintained her own singing career, and has continued acting. She wasn’t openly credited in many of these roles, as she was dubbing over big name stars who didn’t have the sound the studios wanted. And while it is obvious in some cases that it is a dub (My Fair Lady), overall she gets the tone of the actress down. So, she’s acting the characters as another actress portrays. 

ALL THE AWARDS.

Tumblr Etiquette

For those of you who are new on Tumblr or new to the Monkees fandom, here are a few guidelines to check out….

1)When you see a post that you like on Tumblr, please DO NOT re post it as your own. Although the picture may be cool, seeing it being reposted by 5 people in a row can be tiresome. Simply re-blog the picture, rather than saving it to your desktop and posting it as your own. Note: If your post is the same as another fans, due to coincidence, we will not freak out. We are only talking about people who do this constantly.

2)Give GIF credit where it is due. GIF makers on tumblr put a lot of time and effort into making these GIFS simply to please the fandom. Always cite the source in which you got the GIF from. If you found it online and don’t know the source, please state- Source: Unknown.

3)DO NOT make fun of a fan’s artwork or tattoos.  No matter how much you hate it, keep the negative comments to yourself, rather than making someone feel like shit.

4)The people on here who RP with others are doing it because it makes them happy. Mind you, they RP with others for free. If you can’t stand seeing RP posts, rather than making fun of them, JUST UNFOLLOW THEM.

5)People who post original scans as their own: There is a reason why we watermark our scans or tag the photo as “My Scans”. These are original scans from our teen magazines, so please be kind and give credit where it is due.

6)Following and unfollowing someone’s blog a million times is not cool. Do you love our blog or do you hate it? Please make up your mind.

7)Rude anon comments are not acceptable. If you think our blog sucks, or you think the Monkees suck, just don’t follow us. Hate mail is not necessary.

8)DO NOT make fun of people who cosplay. For them this is a creative outlet in which they can express themselves, and show their love of a particular band member, band, person, etc.( and they look rad doing it.)

9) Extremely long photo sets can be quite annoying. Please do not allow your photo sets to be as long as the “Color Of The Sky” post. Super long photo sets can be cringe worthy.

10)  If someone has a similar idea as yours *cough cough monkeeopoly * Do not start unnecessary drama. After I saw what poor Smittygirl got put through, I really began to question the sincerity of the Monkees fandom. People have similar ideas. Just because you thought of the idea a few years earlier does not give you the right to shoot off your mouth at an innocent fan.
