Uploading everything I make is not okay with me.

I am flattered that you consider my work good enough to save and upload my entire post to another site but PLEASE STOP. I am aware of Fanpop, I have an account there, and will post my content when I want it there.

Even when you give me credit, which is often and I do appreciate that, Fanpop still attaches your name to my work and that's my one rule: don't attach your name to my work. I know it isn't your intention to claim you made my icons but that's how Fanpop works. It makes me seriously grumpy to find that I can't post icons that I made because they're already posted and have somebody else's name on them.

I'm not addressing this to people who take a couple of icons and upload them for their own use; that is the point of icons. Uploading everything I make to another site, whether it's the entire post or everything in that fandom, is not okay with me. Thank you.

omg hun, now that you mentioned this I went to check and there are a lot of my icons there as well. O.O
Like whole sets of icons!!!! that's crazy. I didn't think they did that.
What are you gonna do about it?

I see and I agree with you.
I was just wondering..... are you posts here locked? Like, are they visible only by the ones that are members of your community? Because I was thinking about locking all my entries but then I thought that

first, that wat even normal lj users who just want to look around in my com wouldn't be able to do it and I'd force them to join the com

second, one of the stealers could be a member of my community and in that case the locking wouldn't stop them...

so..... I guess I'm gonna have to suck it up. It's not like it bothers me to no end but it does make me feel a bit uncomfortable and creeped on.... :/

it could an ignorance problem indeed. People who steal stuff knowing that they are stealing and not aiming to be easily caught usually don't even give credit.
I think they see it as a "Hey, we are collecting great art all around to put it together in one piece. And we selected your stuff! Gloat on!" or something like that.
Which would even be okay, they just should make the time to allert the artist in my opinion and ask for permission.

Anyway, that's how things are. At least now I know about my stuff too. thanks.

and Happy Easter btw! ;D

Happy Easter to you, too! We should focus on happy things like last night's SPN episode. Why am I ranting rather than staring at Sam, Dean, and Castiel while iconning???

hahahah I know, right?
to tell you the truth I have been making icons of this epsiode since even before the episode was aired. XD

That is crazy. Some people really have no respect. And I always thought Fanpop was the uglier stepsister of Bing anyway.

I've never really worked with Fanpop before, but the whole site feels clunky and convoluted. From a web design standpoint, I absolutely hate it. I feel the navigation should be more streamlined. Less adverts. Eh, that's me talking again.

MySpace was bad about that, and other sites, too, I'm sure. DeviantArt had its moments and plenty of other sites (Angelfire way back when). Social networking or social sharing sites always have loopholes such as this and will probably be the bane of artists of any medium everywhere. XD
