Well, what do you think, everyone?

You probably don't want to follow this blog.

It is a sock puppet account for discussion and crediting artists where people neglect to. That means often reblogging the same images over and over, as a forewarning.

I am not affiliated with source-your-shit.

I do know some of the people who run the blog, but I take no part in running it myself aside from pointing posts in their direction when I'm not at my computer or can't find the source of an artwork myself.

Ask me anything

    Hi. To those who have been waiting for more updates, sorry for the long absence.

    In the past months that I’ve been quiet, I’ve realized a grave mistake on my part as a translator. That is, that I should still ask for artists’ permission to translate, edit and share their work. It’s supposed to be common sense, really, but I suppose that want to “share something good” can blind you from good morals at times.

    It took me long (far too long, perhaps) to say this, but I’ve decided to close this blog. I will delete all the posts in this blog except this one.

    Timingly so, I’ve received a notice from Kumiko Baba (坂東 from Pixiv) to remove posts containing her art on this blog, and all the reblogs if possible.
    So… to all those who reblogged “June Bride” (Akusai), please delete those reblogs! And if possible, don’t post her art without her permission anymore! Please continue to support Kumiko Baba (坂東 from Pixiv) by bookmarking or ranking her art.

    With all that said, goodbye.

    Your ask is closed now so this is the only place I see to say this - if at all possible you can still grab at least one reblog URL from each post of yours (or the direct URL to the image file would be best), you could direct the artists to http://tumblr.com/dmca for them to report it and specifically tell tumblr staff “delete all reblogs”. Tumblr will then remove the artwork and all reblogs. It would’ve been easier if you had set your posts to private so you had an unchanging URL for them to use.

    And if you’re going to advocate having the artist’s permission to use their work, you should probably clear out your sidebar image and blog avatar.

    While I appreciate translations, it makes me happy to know someone else realized credit and disclaimers are not the same as having permission.

  6. illusionaryish asked: That's interesting, the tags on zerochan state the artist! Look at that! I suppose you should dedicate some more time trying to bother the "friends" that put this art out there when they shouldn't have than people who spend hours a week searching for the source, are unable to find it, and rely on the next best thing (that being a link that includes the artists' pixiv, giving someone else any information they may want, while not presenting a blank page).

    Zerochan is not the source of the art. It is a place where art is reposted without the artist’s permission because apparently art sites like pixiv and deviantART aren’t good enough for some people to view art.

    If it gives the Pixiv ID, then why don’t you just put the Pixiv ID URL instead of the Zerochan URL? Zerochan should not take precedence over the artist and shouldn’t receive any credit for the art because, like I said, they didn’t have any artist’s permission to display the art in the first place.

    Don’t know what you’re talking about with “friends that put this art out there when they shouldn’t have” - do you mean artists who should be able to display their art without having to worry about people using it without their permission, or those people like you who don’t even have the artist’s permission to use the art in the first place?

    For what it’s worth, saucenao.com usually takes only a few seconds to find the artist of an artwork that originated from pixiv. As does Google for most other art.

    Oh my goodness reblog from the artist. You took it right from the artist’s post. The URLs to the image file are the same. Why didn’t you just use the reblog button? That’s what the reblog button is for: you see something you like on tumblr, so you reblog it to your own blog.

    See this post for further instructions.
