Stealing stuff to get noticed
I’m sorry for having to make this post but guys, the situation has gotten out of control.
Yesterday, and many other times before that, someone reposted one of my gifs on Twitter in order to “get noticed” by Jack. And it worked.
Now, this has been happening a lot lately, not only on Twitter but on Tumblr and Instagram as well. And not only to me but to a lot of gifs, edits and art creators in the community. And it’s not fair at all.
I understand that getting “noticed” by Jack (or Wiishu or any other “famous” - allow me this word - people) is many people’s go-to and only goal for the day but if that is really so important to you, please make something of your own! Don’t steal other people’s work, it’s so super unfair and disrepectful, not only towards the creators but also towards the people you’re trying to get the attention from, like Jack, who can’t possibly remember every single thing he’s seen in the tag and thus can’t tell if something is stolen or not.
Seeing people getting away with stealing my stuff honestly makes me want to stop creating. And I’m sure I’m not the only one who feels this way.
The community is supposed to do better than this and I’m so heartbroken to see that things are getting worse and worse on this front. :/
