linking your social media accounts

If you value copyright on your animal images, do not submit anything to The Dodo.

I just finally figured out how The Dodo is consistently able to pull content from people’s social media accounts without running into copyright law issues. And it’s hella shady. 

Buried in their terms and conditions is this:

“*By pasting a link to your social media account(s) you understand that you are granting to The Dodo full access to and permission to use any of your animal content.”

So even if the content you’re submitting has nothing to do with that social media account, if you put a link to the page in that box, you’ve given away all rights to your own animal media. You no longer have control over what they use or how they frame it, and you don’t get compensation. There’s no time limit on that clause - they can now scrape your content and use it for their own ends indefinitely.

As always, this is just my interpretation of this archetype and the song. I do not believe Jongin, nor any of the other members, past or present, of EXO would act like this. Feedback is always greatly appreciated. I hope you enjoy!

LDR Date Idea #12

Get some cute apps!

There are a handful of really great apps for both iOS and Android designed just for couples!

There are two in particular Aurora and I use:

1. Couple

Couple links you and your parntner’s accounts. Like a social media site just for two! It features a standard chat room, a calendar for important dates, lists that you can edit together, video call, phone call, and even a little room where you can doodle on your phones together!

But my personal favorite feature is called Thumb Kiss. It’s essentially a blank screen that you can touch, but when your partner touches their screen, the spot they’re touching shows up for you! And when your fingerprints touch (or “kiss”!) your phone will vibrate and the screen will flash pink. It’s super cute!!!

2. Happy Couple

Happy Coupe is a super cute trivia app just for you and your partner! Every day, the app will give you 5 multiple choice  questions about your partner, as well as the same 5 questions to answer about yourself. It’s a really cute way to get to know each other even more.

Not to mention, the app also provides relationship advice and gives you “challenges” like “Think about three things you adore about your partner and describe it to them.”

[HOW TO] YOUTUBE MV VIEWS

Honestly, being able to effectively stream the comeback MV is just as important as streaming on music app. Not only does the view gets counted towards Music Show wins, being able to reach a certain number of views generates positive news for the album and for Bangtan. Let’s try our best for this too~

  • REPLAY BUTTON DOESN’T COUNT AS A VIEW.
  • Do not re-upload the videos on any other sites. Reupload means, you download it as video and then reupload it on your own page or channel. This will take away views from the official MV.
  • YOU NEED TO WATCH THE WHOLE VIDEO. DO NOT MUTE. Plug in earphones on the device if you’re getting tired hehe~
  • Share the link on all your social media accounts, clicks from shared links will count as a view. Ask some of your friends!!! 
  • If you have a youtube account, use it to like, comment and share the video. But multiple views are more effective if you log out of the account or in incognito mode.
  • WATCH BOTH MVs ON 1THEK and iBIGHIT channel. 
  • Watching in incognito mode counts best, go to the youtube page and search for the MV title and click the link.
  • Multiple tabs doesn’t count
  • Create a playlist than has a total playing time of more than 30 minutes, please add DOPE and FIRE MVs (frm 1theK channel) to also help increase the views on those MVs.
  • Switch devices from time to time. PC then mobile or vice-versa.
  • After about every 5-6 hours, clear your cache.

There are a lot of different information on how to view MVs effectively just some things to keep in mind.

  • Youtube tracks your view based on your IP address. If you view the video once, it counts and then youtube kind of IDs your IP on their system.
  • Then they have preventive measures for bots or programs who can manipulate this view count, so if youtube identifies your IP address as viewing a specific link over and over in a SHORT AMOUNT OF TIME, it will treat it as spam and invalidate these views.
  • That’s why you create a playlist so you can watch other videos and your IP won’t register as watching the same thing once you go back to the comeback MV link.

ARMYs please do share your best practices as replies below!!! We might have varying techniques on this. What is important is that you make sure that your view counts!!! Thank you~~~ ^_^

hey y’all. this is gonna be my last post on what happened on discord, and it’s not so much a callout/discourse post as it is a psa. 

If you own a server/mod a server make sure you do the following;

-limit invites to mods only

-limit invites to one use only

-discontinue any current invites that are multiple use/don’t expire

-before sending an invite check someone’s blog thoroughly. if they link you to a discourse blog, ask for their main or fandom specific blog. the people who snuck into the server used prop blogs to do so

-don’t accept “i’m new to the fandom” it sounds harsh but this was also used to invade. If you can’t verify a person’s trustworthiness, do not let them in

If you are in a server make sure you do the following:

-do not share any personal info. full name/last name/email/specific location/etc. None of that info was leaked this time but that doesn’t mean someone won’t do it in the future. 

-Keep social media to accounts not linked to your personal life. Especially if you’re lgbt and not out to your family.

-avoid sharing selfies except in private and with people you trust. if someone infiltrates your server they could post your picture anywhere without your permission

-fake/prop servers exist so check a blog thoroughly before joining their server. 

-ask your mods to take security precautions to make sure your server is safe

Let’s make sure no one else has to go through this ever again.

Precautions to take to avoid being doxxed:

(mentioned this before, but after what just happened to @ummquestion, I’m gonna make another post)

-Don’t give out your full name and age at the same time. Even if you have a really ordinary name, your age added onto that might make it really easy for people to find more of your personal information. Don’t even give out your full name if you really want to stay safe. There are directories where people can find out exactly where you (and your family) live just by searching both. A lot of the times they have phone numbers too. 

-If anyone sends you a suspicious link, don’t click on it. It could be one of those ip grabbers where someone can obtain your I.P address and then use that to get your location.

-Don’t link photos directly from your social media accounts (that probably contain really personal info like Facebook). Someone could use this to do a reverse image search of some sorts. I never ever post pictures I post on Facebook or other social media on here for this reason. 

-And if you can try not to post other social media with any sort of personal info on here. I keep this website completely separate from those.

-IP address blockers. 

I probably sound paranoid, but some people on here are really crafty when it comes to doxxing. You don’t wanna risk someone possibly putting you danger or ruining your life cause something you posted on the internet made them mad. 

Hey!! My name is Doreen I wanted to know if you wanted to join my boyfriend and I on this journey of becoming future YouTubers we’re so excited to grow our fan base.

Sonic Forces FC Showcase!

Originally posted by shadamy

SO! As some of you know by now, I help my bro @orionthestarhog out with his Let’s Plays, and our biggest hit so far has been - of course - Sonic Mania.

But now it’s time to get started with something new! Sonic Forces comes out in early November, and Orion and I pre-ordered the game, which means we’ll be showing off Shadow’s story and everything.

Now here’s what I wanna do, between me and Orion, we only have one eligible Avatar character, which is Orion himself. But as we’ve seen, you can have at least TWO Avatar characters available at any given moment!

So…Orion and I would like to make our Sonic Forces LP a FAN CHARACTER SHOWCASE!

Basically, if you have a fan character that you would like to have featured in our videos, all you have to do is give us a reference to the character, including their name, give us a little backstory about how they came to “join the resistance” and a quick rundown of their personality, and give us your preferred Wispon for the character, and we’ll try to include your FC in our video!

We’ll give full credit to you - the creators - of course, and we’ll link our viewers back to your social media accounts so they can check out all of your projects!

So whaddya say gang? Send in your OCs and let them join the resistance, Sonic and Co. need your help to stop Eggman once and for all, and it’s going to take an army! Send us your recruits!

I made a fundraiser to help me afford a good binder that won't hurt me (like my last one) or break (again, last one), to afford the right gender attire and also Testosterone. But I don't know how to go about spreading it around. Tips on where I should go to drop the link?

Lee says:

Posting a link in the description of your social media accounts are a good place to start! You can also contact people one-on-one and ask them to donate to you. 

This article is about surgery fundraising, but the “Crowdfunding For Surgery Money” part could apply to crowdfunding for any transition thing and the links at the end are also helpful, so I’d give it a read. This tag has a post on fundraising too, which you could take a peek at as well. 

Free binders:

How do I buy a binder if I’m not out?

From what I’ve read, people will want to see how you’ve tried to get the money yourself and why you’re unable to pay for it, so make sure you’ve tried all of your options before crowd fundraising. When first I wanted a binder I was 15, and I got enough money for it through chores and yardwork and birthday and christmas money all added up. When I wanted a packer I was 16, and I applied to part-time jobs and started working 3 hours a week so I could save up my money to get one. When I was 17 I wanted to start testosterone as soon as I turned 18, so I looked into the insurance laws for my state and the insurance my family has covers testosterone. You’re going to need to demonstrate that you’re too disabled to get a job, or that you’re too poor to save up the money or people won’t donate to you.

On affording testosterone: You can use GoodRx coupons if your insurance doesn’t cover testosterone. Before you do that though, it’s really important to see if they do cover testosterone, because a lot of insurances do (mine does!). Once you’ve done all your research, you’ll know how much you’ll have to pay out of pocket. The How much does it cost to start testosterone? post and the What is the monthly price of different forms of testosterone? post are guestimates that’ll give you a vague idea of the cost, but until you’ve dealt with your insurance, you won’t know how much it’ll be.

As for the clothes, sometimes you can get donations from local LGBT organizations that have clothes for trans people who can’t afford to buy them! Looking into that could be helpful.

Followers, any advice for anon on where they should send their fundraising link?

YES! I will be in Japan Early-Mid August 2016 and will be doing some serious SERVAMP shopping and also attending Comiket for the first time! XD Comiket is the biggest doujinshi event in Japan that is held every summer and winter at Tokyo Big Sight – and Tanaka-sensei has confirmed their attendance to the semi-annual event! *^*

Since I’ll be visiting their booths (along with other SERVAMP artist booths), I was thinking: why not give them a fan-book with the arts of the fans here at tumblr to show them our support and undying love to them and their beloved series?? 8D

I hope everyone will participate in this no matter the skill level you possess just to show them that SERVAMP is popular with the international fans too! (((o(*゚▽゚*)o)))

And as I mentioned, I will also be doing some SERVAMP merchandise shopping and won’t mind getting some stuffs for the fans here – especially since SERVAMP goods are not (yet) available globally. Of course, I can’t guarantee getting everything you requested, but I will try my best~ :3

(P.S. I will be going to Comiket Day 1 and Day 2, so I don’t mind getting you stuffs from there too since I *probably* have some time left after visiting the SERVAMP booths. However, I have to charge commission for this since I heard the queue is crazy and the heat is pretty bad or something. X_X PM me for more info!)

What an exciting trip! Please click “Read More” for more information! ^o^

How to become a Guest Author for Queer History, and the Benefits

First, let’s talk about the benefits. We will be paying 16 dollars an article right now, and will hopefully continue to be able to pay 50% of what we make off an article to any guest author, and as we get more money so will the guest authors. We will edit this post as we grow to let you know how much money to expect from an article.

Also we will be able to link any social media account you want on our patreon, Tumblr, and Facebook, and will use your name(does not have to be your legal or birth name) in citing the author. If you do not want your name or social media accounts linked we will accommodate to that as well. But for just starting writers, while we are not a large company being able to say you have written professionally is a good thing to have on any resume.

And now How To Become a Guest Author

  1. We will be paying through paypal so you must have a account there.
  2. You will also need a Patreon account, as we will be taking article submissions through the message system there, as the tumblr message system is unreliable at best, and we don’t want to lose anyone’s articles. If you cannot do that, email yoursubmission into us at queerhistorypatreon@gmail.com
  3. No terfs or any other transphobic people are allowed to write for us.
  4. For your submission we will be asking for:
  • The opening paragraph, summing up what you are writing about and some preliminary information regarding where you plan to go with the article, must be between 100-500 words.
  • All writers must be queer, this is an honour system thing, we want to be hiring queer artists exclusively, so if you are an ally this opportunity is not for you.
  • We will have a basic wish list released at the beginning of each month of article themes, or possible topics, while you do not have to pick something off of there, your article is more likely to be chosen if it is from there.

If you are chosen as a Guest Author, that’s great! Here is what to expect

  1. We will need a method to communicate with you as you write your article, while we will give you a lot of creative control we do want a bit of control over the completed content, so be open to edits and critiques. We want to produce the best possible content for our audience and we are sure you want to produce to the best content to represent yourself, so we will need to be able work with you to make that happen.
  2. We will need to be able to make sure you are not a bad person, don’t worry this wont be hard, all we will need is a link to one of your social media accounts, and it wont be a tough vetting process. Just making sure you are not outwardly transphobic, homophobic, aphobic or anything like that.
  3. Sources for your article.
  4. A full article over 1000 words that follows the basic template of our previous articles, remember to add on a quote if you can find one.
  5. A picture for your article that is in the public domain.
  6. And just a willingness to cooperate with both of the runners of the project, myself(Laura Mills) and Grace Wordsworth.
  7. We will pay at the end of the month through paypal as that is where and when we get the money from the article to pay you.
ARMYs STRATEGY #2: YOUTUBE MV VIEWS

Some tips to effectively raise the MV Views for the RUN MV. The views, likes and comments of the official MV is also counted towards music show wins. This is one thing I can count on everyone to be able to do because it doesn’t entail you to spend anything. The goal is the get 1 Million views in 24 hours!!! Here we go!!!!!!

  1. REPLAY BUTTON DOESN’T COUNT AS A VIEW.
  2. The MV will be uploaded on BOTH 1THEK and iBIGHIT channel. Please prioritize the video on iBIGHIT channel on youtube.
  3. Best practice to view the video effectively: Use Incognito Mode on Google Chrome and SEARCH for the MV on the youtube search bar and click on the iBIGHIT MV.
  4. If in incognito mode, you cannot refresh the page. You need to close that tab and open a new incognito page and follow the process above again.
  5. Do not re-upload the videos here on tumblr. The shared videos on tumblr from the youtube link will only count as one view.
  6. Someone will definitely upload the audio here, but please please if you will listen to it play the MV on youtube.
  7. YOU NEED TO WATCH THE WHOLE VIDEO. DO NOT MUTE.
  8. Create a playlist with at least 3 videos after the MV. You can’t create a playlist with only just the MV in it. It will not count as multiple views.
  9. Clear the cookies of your browser every hour if possible to refresh your “profile” on youtube, so that your view count would be more effective.
  10. REFRESHING THE PAGE DOESN’T COUNT AS A VIEW. You need to search for the MV and load it from the search.
  11. Share the link on all your social media accounts, clicks from shared links will count as a view. Ask some of your friends!!! 
  12. It will be more effective if the resolution is set at 720p.
  13. If you have a youtube account, use it to like, comment and share the video. But multiple views are more effective if you log out of the account or in incognito mode.
  14. If you have anything to add here please send me an ask, tag me on your own post or submit your own best practice!!!

Want Free Merchandise? Apply to be a BLK Proverbs brand ambassador

We are open to all applicants and not limited to those with large social media following!

To apply please send a short email to business@blkproverbs.com with a short bio, links to your social media accounts, and why you would like to be associated with the Blk Proverbs brand. dassit.

Folks selected will be sent one of these BLK Proverbs gift sets FOR FREE with your choice of a hat, shirt and pillow or hat, shirt, and mug. 

If this post reaches 1000 notes, (and for every 1000 over) I’ll give away one of these gift boxes to one of my followers. MUST BE FOLLOWING. This giveaway is not associated with Tumblr. 

ATTENTION, WRITERS!

I’m calling all of you, from just beginning to get the hang of it, to pretty good, to no hang of it at all. 

All of us need improvement, encouragement, and help.
Being a writer means having trouble making time for writing, and whenever we do, sometimes it feels like we don’t know where to go with it at all.
Sometimes we just feel like we need someone to help us with our writing, to help us stay on top of it all, and accomplish the goals we set for ourselves. 
And that, my friend, is what Amateur Editors is for.
Amateur Editors is a thing I made up. I have no idea if something like this actually exists. It’s here to help all of us writers on Tumblr, and I think if you use it correctly, it can really improve your writing. 

Once you get your very own Amateur Editor (steps on how to begin are below the cut), you share your writing with each other and help improve. 

You send them your writing, and they send you theirs and you give each other advice and help make sure that they’re getting daily writing in, as all of us writers should. 

The bonus of having an AE is you don’t actually know this person in real life. This is good because showing your writing to a close friend might be worrying. You could be scared of what they think. Showing an AE your work is stress-free because you don’t know them. You don’t know them at all, so what does it matter if they don’t like it? The least they can do is give you advice to help you get better! Plus, they’re giving you their work, too, so they probably feel the same way!

So what are you waiting for? Find out how to get your own AE now!
