”When I get bigger, big enough to go somewhere by myself, I want to go to a land that’s far away. I want to go to a faraway island. I want to go to an island that has no people. I want to go to an island that has no pain or sadness. There are no adults, children, classmates, teachers or my mom on that island. On that island, I can climb a tree when I want to climb, swim in the see when I want to swim, and sleep when I want to sleep. In the island, I think about the town that I left behind. Kids go to school, as if nothing has changed. Adults go to the office, as if nothing has changed. Mom eats, as if nothing has changed. When I think about the town without me, I feel a sense of relief. I want to go far, far away.”
Hi Kayo here, head of Security at International Rescue and I want you to know I’m really on to this hate message/bullying crap! We’re sorry you’re getting this kind of stuff, I’m hoping to bring some easy solutions, instant answers and great support - no one here has to suffer again!
And to those who are perpetrating this hate, I’ve been asked to be head of security for the new Tag/Tos Support Team, a task I am seriously pleased to take on - so be warned.
Firstly, I started by contacting Tumblr, their whole ethos is that the site should be a friendly and safe place for exchange of your artwork, stories, photos and view.
I wasn’t aware of this until now but
APPARENTLY NO ONE IS NAMELESS! UNLIKE FACEBOOK, ON TUMBLR ALL ANNONS CAN BE NAMED IF NECESSARY!!!! Ha!
So if you have a reasonable criticism, or better still just a nice comment, you might as well put your own damned name to it, own up to it, take responsibility for it. Otherwise you become the worthless shit we suspect you are and can then be totally ignored.
AND SO TO THE SUPPORT;
There has been a flurry of support from the tag team, I’m busy contacting those that offered to be supporters, I want to be sure that they are okay for me to publicly list them as the support team.
If you’re not coping with hate stuff and need a little help then contact one of the support team directly or post on your own blog with #tagteamsupport and someone will be there to help out. Sometimes it only takes someone else listening and offering solutions, to have the confidence to continue
Meanwhiles, there is apparently a very simple solution if things get bad.
IN YOUR SETTINGS - UNDER ASK - YOU CAN UNCLICK ALLOW ANNONYMOUS QUESTIONS
You can always allow it again later, once things have calmed down a little!
So hopefully that’s a great start to the new #tagteamsupport, let me know if you can think of anything to add and keep in touch if you get into troubles.
I’ll add the list of support team asap - signing off - Kayo
I’ll be tabling at Anime North next weekend! I colored the Erased sketch that I did a while back and will be selling it there as a print, so if you’re a big Erased fan like I am, you should stop by our table!
