do not remove captions or tags when reblogging

Finished, FINALLY! Here’s the first of three pieces I owe for the art giveaway I set up SO long ago, ahh…  Bless my winners for their extreme patience! One down, two to go… Well I never thought I’d draw Merlin as a merman, haha… but, truly, I was glad to have been given a reason to! Hope you like my take on your request, @vanhelsing019! :)

(My Art TagPlease do not remove my link or caption! 

Hello sunflowers 🌻! I want to quickly address something I’ve been noticing more increasingly over the past few months: it is not OK to self-promote on others’ posts. Adding comments, tagging friends, etc. is fine, and part of the social aspect of this website, but adding direct self-promos (“follow for more like this!”) or indirect self-promos (random phrases mass-spammed on all/many of your reblogs such as “be kind”, “love yourself”, “live, laugh, love”) is not. This is something I have noticed both on my original posts, and posts I have reblogged, and it honestly makes me sad that people are using my blog to post spam… especially when they remove the original credit/caption to do so.

Just as fair warning: I will be blocking any/all blogs that I see doing this! Please respect your fellow bloggers 😌 💕!

Hey guys, I drew a Butters! What’s so special about this one? Well, I drew him so that you guys could dress him up any way you want. Just save the template above and then drop him into whatever drawing program you use, and draw on whatever outfit you want. If people take an interest in this, I’ll do Kenny next, and maybe more. If you decide to do this, just post it to Tumblr when you’re done and tag me or you can submit it to me if you want. I’ll be sure to reblog. If I don’t  reblog yours just send me an ask because Tumblr might not have notified me.

Edit: Please don’t remove my caption

You know how most, if not all books have one or two pages filled with a short note from the author? They talk about anything and everything there. Most people skip them.

But do you rip the paper out? No. Of course not.

That’s what it feels like when you remove an artist’s caption on their drawings though. You’re ripping away our words for no reason other than “it’s in the way”

If you want your blog to be “aesthetic” be decent and spend two minutes looking for the code that hides captions on your blog instead of being disrespectful and rude and blindly deleting comments off of everything you reblog.

Please
  • Don’t self promote on posts that aren’t yours
  • Don’t re-post other peoples work without permission (if the post already exists on tumblr just reblog, no need for another when it’s already there)
  • Don’t remove captions, the person who put it there didn’t do it just for people to ignore or erase it (Most themes nowadays don’t show the captions or you can take them off manually)
  • Check the source to see if it’s from weheartit. If it is don’t reblog~ instead go to the source and see if the image came from tumblr and reblog from the link (it takes less than a minute)
  • If you are going to post/reblog nsfw or spoilers please tag them so that people who don’t want to see that on their dash can blocklist it
  • Also, if i or anyone reblogs/posts things that you don’t like to see request to tag them so you don’t have to see it
  • Send messages twice in case tumblr eats it

I see these issues on my dash and activity a lot lately so i thought i’d make a post (:
