‘I’m all for open talk when it’s a room full of friends or people you trust. But I don’t like the idea of having a platform where I would have to read comments from people I don’t know. Do you know what I mean?’ - Aidan Turner for The Telegraph (April 2017)
Guys, please stop using my Tumblr posts and posting them as your own on Instagram or anywhere else (Instagram is where I’ve really noticed the issue). That includes in particular the descriptions I write on behind the scenes posts. Obviously the vast majority of pics I post are not mine, and you are free to repost the photos (and I always try to provide the original source location where I can to assist with that). I don’t believe in a game of hide the ball on this. But I do put a certain amount of time and effort into the little descriptions of locations and figuring what episodes the pic go with and whatever other comments I make in my posts and I don’t appreciate seeing those descriptions and comments turn up on Instagram 5 minutes later as someone else’s thoughts. If you like my Tumblr commentary, link to my posts, don’t appropriate them.
Likewise, while I appreciate that people like my fan edits and funko doll pics - I don’t appreciate people reposting them after cropping off my watermark or without acknowledging they didn’t create them and where they got them. I have seen ALL of this on Instagram this week. Repeatedly, across multiple tags.
I can’t match your Tumblr names and your Instagram names and I choose not to make my Instagram public so I can’t engage with you there. But I have to assume you follow me here from the speed with which these things go up. Please stop or I’ll have to start sharing some screen shots of my own and calling you out here because it’s the same repeat offenders, over and over and I’m really really tired of it. Thank you.
