And you know what? I’m not even angry. I’m sad. I’m sad that there are people in the world who really literally completely have no respect for artists and the hard work they put in to share their talent with the world and for free. I’m sad people like this cause artists to withdraw, to hate fandoms and stop drawing for us because people like this think they own artists and everything they create.
See thing is? It’s not a small problem. I’m NOT the only one who cares “who posted it first”. I care about THE PERSON WHO CREATED IT. And it’s so, so depressing that there are people who don’t.
Wanting to see your or your friend’s work getting proper credit means you’re a little shit?
I really don’t understand why sourcing art is such an issue for people. It’s so ridiculously easy and just good manners. If work evokes a positive response from you, whether awe or laughter or whatever, isn’t it worth it to give props to the artist? Yes, yes it is. Hell, even if the art is bad but still calls you to respond enough to it to post it, the artist deserves credit. ALL ART DESERVES CREDIT.
Please do reblog and add your names if you are a BlazBlue roleplayer. Let’s just say this is to keep track of everyone. Also, if you ever change your URL name. Please do change it here too and recheck this if you find that your name is not found here.
seriously, this is the exact same way I think. We had this convo at the high school I work at and we were talking about homosexuality and gay people being able to adopt and someone asked “what about the people the kids go to school with? what are they going to think? They’re going to get bullied.” and I was just like.. wow. you know? Like, maybe if you taught your fucking kids not to fucking be so god damned judgmental there wouldn’t be a fucking problem. I’m not even gay and I understand this. People are far way too concerned with shit that doesn’t affect their lives.
