hsapiens: Bobby & Crowley Seal the Deal (SPN -- Bobby/Crowley *SWAK*)
[personal profile] hsapiens
I'm importing the last two graphics posts from my LJ icon journal here and wanted to give you a heads up just in case you want to take this community off of your reading list for a bit to prevent it from spamming you. It will only be two entries but better safe than sorry.

Yay! They backdated the entries so hopefully they aren't clogging your pages (yes?) and apparently the process is so fast now that it happened as quickly as I asked for it. :| Sorry that wasn't much of a warning but hopefully it wasn't needed.

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.

Sincerely,
Mish

If you decide to post a link to a post in this journal, please be aware that I will get a notice even if you f-lock the entry. I've been searching comm settings to see if I could turn this off to protect your privacy until LJ fixes the part that breaks the privacy of f-lock but I can't find such a setting for a community. If you're curious what these notices look like, my friend [livejournal.com profile] colls has unscreened some over at her journal here:

http://community.livejournal.com/swannee/56258.html

The first and last comments are examples of the pingbacks. You're always welcome to link to me, to rant about me**, whatever floats your boat but you should be aware that I'll probably get a notice, even if you've locked me out of your post.

**I know everyone was waiting for that permission, right? ;-)

My old resources list includes credit for a lot of work I downloaded but ultimately never used. Here's an updated, much shorter list of those makers whose work I use.

I've been wanting an icon journal for the longest time, which is rather silly because I'll probably post once a month at most but there it is. Or, rather, here it is.

I guess here is a good place to discuss things like rules. *sigh* I hate them.

Let's see...

1. I only post from my LJ Scrapbook. If you can figure out how to hotlink to them, it isn't my problem. I still think it's rude but it isn't something I can control.

2. Credit is nice and I think it's a service to fellow fans who want to track down a maker but frankly, I can't be bothered to hunt you down if you don't. I don't trawl your userpics to make certain you've credited me. I'm not the Icon Police and I'm not your parent. "Improperly" crediting me or plain old forgetting to just isn't a major sin worth getting my panties in a wad over.

3. Which brings me to my only rule: don't steal. You didn't make it so please don't say you did.

4. I love comments. Adore them. I'll try to answer all comments.

~~**~~

I make every effort to credit those whose hard work makes it possible for me to play around with Photoshop. Here are my resources:

Photoshop Resources (brushes, gradients, textures, etc.)
Screen Cap Resources
Pictoral Index of Memorable Tutorials (Image Intensive)

If you want to know where I got something in particular, it's probably faster to ask me. I'm happy to help in any way I can so don't be shy. :) Lots of wonderful people on LJ have helped me and I'm thrilled to have the opportunity to return the favor.

Want to browse icons by subject rather than by the date I posted them? They're here in my Scrapbook.
