Hello, I haven't been online for a VERY long time,
long time no see
THIS JOURNAL IS ABOUT TWO THINGS;
SCROLL DOWN FOR AN IMPORTANT MESSAGE
While I was away I received a Note from someone saying that someone had used one of my bases without crediting me or linking to the original base.
people were threatening this poor person and calling him/her very horrible things.
that is not ok.
of course I'm a little upset and disappointed that he/she didn't put a link to the original base, but it happens very often, and most people that do this are pretty new to bases and don't understand or forgot to read the rules.
it happens. it happens very often.
when people don't understand how important it is to link and credit, try to teach them how to do it, instead of lashing out and pushing them out to never wanting to draw again. (it happens)
be polite, ask them why they didn't do it and try to make them understand "how" bases on Deviantart work.
SEND DEATH THREATS TO SOME POOR KID THAT JUST WANTS TO PRACTICE DRAWING ON BASES.
I was so ashamed to look at all the negative comments that was, it made me so sad, if it was me receiving that much hate in one day I would've never drawn again.
and before you get all pissed at me and go
"BUt THey ArE STEaLinG YouR BaseSsSsSs---- IT'S THEFT. THEY NEED TO BE PUNISHED IN ONE WAY OR ANOTHER."
yes, people who (ON PURPOSE) steal/use bases without crediting or linking are technically stealing.
and yes, I agree that it's theft and it shouldn't be done.
so, if someone steals my base or uses it and claims it to be their complete own art work from scratch, then yes, that's not ok.
send a note to them and tell them to take it down or credit it.
if they refuse, rapport them.
BUT. when some kid uses an hour drawing on a base, and He/She thinks it looks rad, they are obviously gonna want to share it, right?
if that kid is just HALF as bad as I was at English/computers as I was 4-5 years ago, they would have NO CLUE on how crediting works.
So please, before you go on a hating-spree, try to make them understand what to do, ok??
another important message;
YES, A LOT OF PEOPLE DON'T CREDIT AND TAKES THE ARTWORK FOR THEMSELVES.
I DO NOT AGREE THAT THAT IS OK.
DOING THAT IS BAD.
AND I DO IN NO WAY SUPPORT PEOPLE WHO DOES THIS ON PURPOSE.
BUT MOST PEOPLE WHO FORGET TO CREDIT ARE MOSTLY KIDS WHO DOES NOT UNDERSTAND THAT THEY'VE MADE A MISTAKE.
A LOT OF PEOPLE USE DEVIANTART EVEN THOUGH ENGLISH ISN'T THEIR 1ST LANGUAGE, SO THEY MIGHT NOT UNDERSTAND.
I'm very sorry if you're receiving hate and mean comments for doing something you don't completely understand.
please don't take the mean comments to heart.
but crediting and linking is very important, that way others can see where you found the base and they can do amazing things with that base as well.
if you don't know how to, ask someone on dA (I would say that you could ask me, but I'll be leaving shortly... (more about that down below))
I've been unactive on this account for a REALLY long time and I haven't been on dA as often as I used to.
(holy hell, they've changed a lot of stuff since last time...)
I am making this Journal because I don't plan on using this account .. for a long time. (I might use it again if I ever start making bases again)
there's a lot of boring, Random and cringe-worthy things in here...
I get really sad when I look at all my old stuff on this profile, because I was a whiny, weird and a complete wannabe-artist when I used this account x'D
I am happy to say that I've changed a lot and I've grown as a person in the time that I've been gone.
(My grammar is still not the best, but it's waaaaay better now than when this account was active... which is great. )
I won't remove this account since there are still some people who use the few good bases that I've made, but I will be removing some other stuff.
(all the bad drawings, weird journals and weaboo things I put everywhere on this profile as an example.)
I'm sorry if you've tried to contact me in the time that I have been gone, I am really really sorry.
(I'll be answering some messages before I leave this place forever.
oh, and before I forget;
Thank you to anyone who wrote a comment saying Happy Birthday to me on my birthday
you're awesome. )
I will not leave deviantart completely though,
Me and a really close friend are making a profile together called Gilevie
where we'll screw around and have fun ~
I MIGHT make a new account and start making bases again and draw OCs, I am not sure.
I miss making them a lot, it was quite fun to make in my spare time, and a lot of people appreciated my bases...
+ I'm way better at drawing now
..I'll think about it~
I'm gonna post this on my other account called fie008
thank you to everyone who has watched me in the past, why you decided to follow me I have no idea, but thank you nonetheless.
Have a wonderful day
