Anonymous asked: AMC did post it on The Walking Dead page on FB about 10 mins ago. When I seen it I knew whom they had borrowed it from, and then I went to the Reedus tag and its now being posted by everyone. It was also posted by AMCTWD blog on tumblr a bit ago. It's a frenzy
I know, I see that now. I messaged her about it. I feel so bad for her but at least it is watermarked.
I have to say something because my dash is flooded with your upset over rebloggers and “stolen” pictures.
One - this picture is from Nylon so LaxMorales took someone else’s picture and edited it. No one is claiming it as theirs and no one is removing the watermark. Not even AMC.
Two - seems like an extreme waste of time to hunt down and “stop” rebloggers. Sure you or whomever made an edit and sure other people reuse them. These edits don’t have copyrights so really a watermark on your work is all you can do. I saw that you said Norman tweeted an edit of yours that someone else altered and that upset you. Is it because you want him to acknowledge your work? Is that why you spend half your time editing other peoples pictures and the other half stopping people from liking them enough to repost them? Is it for attention? Cause if people are reposting them - with or without crediting you - then you are getting attention direct or not.
I’m just curious why it upsets you so much? Seems to me that there are far more important things in life but what do I know? I only get in tumblr every now and then.
- Once I realized the official facebook page had used it, I gave up. And feel free to unfollow me if you don’t like what shows up on your dash due to me.
- The way I see it it’s a waste of time being concerned about how I choose to waste MY time? Don’t you think?
- "Sure you or whomever made an edit and sure other people reuse them." You sound like someone who’s never spent time and creative energy making something. Because if you had, and it was reposted by someone else, I really don’t think you’d belittle the situation like that. It really sucks to spend that much time on something, only to have it saved on someone else’s computer and then posted for notes.
- It’s a dick move to re-edit an edit. I spent hours making that. I suppose that edit is a sore spot because it was the first one that was ever stolen from me.
- "Is that why you spend half your time editing other peoples pictures and the other half stopping people from liking them enough to repost them? Is it for attention?" No, actually it’s for the credit. If you call wanting credit for something a person made “attention seeking” that is again belittling the situation. Those edits did not get that way on their own. They did not magically just become that way.
- "Cause if people are reposting them - with or without crediting you - then you are getting attention direct or not." Once again, credit, not attention. Every note a reposter gets off someone else’s work is ill gained and in no way giving credit to the creator. Reposting is not flattering if that’s what you’re trying to imply.
- I’m just curious why it upsets you so much? Seems to me that there are far more important things in life but what do I know? I only get in tumblr every now and then. If you’d read all the stuff I posted which flooded your dash I wouldn’t have had to explain to you why it upsets me. Again you’re belittling the situation, making it out to not be a big deal..if there are things you view as far more important why weren’t you out doing them instead of spending your time writing that unnecessary reblog message? You simply could have pressed the unfollow button and you could have gotten back to doing those far more important things you speak of much faster.
My apologies for not responding any faster but I was out and about yesterday and didn’t have time to get on to Tumblr.
I see you are quite passionate on this subject. That passion is admirable. I won’t stop following you just because of your desire to stalk and stop reposters. I like the stuff you post, which is why I started following you to begin with.
I am an artsy person myself and unlike your assumption - very creative as I am a writer, a photography, an artist - amongst other avenues like my own graphic design shop, helping to design and code websites and such. I guess the difference is doing something for fun versus doing something for profit. You say credit, I say attention - a difference I don’t think we could ever agree on. I’m a nearly 40 year old business woman who just likes to be goofy sometimes and look at silly things and tumblr does that for me. More power to ya, kiddo since it is so close to your heart. Just know that you you do as you like and feel is right in your heart others will do the same. Even if you don’t think it’s right.
