Oh yeah, I forgot to rate the site. Let's see here -

http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.geocities.com%2Fur_drakon%2F

The spelling and grammar is atrocious, not to mention the overall lack of punctuation marks. As for the look of the site, it is quite scattered and disorganized, random jibberish.

I've seen worse, but this site still gets a "bad" rating from me.

Hey! Another art thief! There's too many of them these days.

The picture (and what I've seen of your other work) is quite good, by the way.

Thank you. You would ask, right? Wouldn't most people with two brain cells to rub together follow the directions that say, "if you ask nicely, I'll let you reproduce my art?"

And not even a link to my page, where he obviously found that image.

I am rather infuriated.

I'd ask. But I'd probably never want to reproduce someone's art, anyway.

The number of errors that the validator found is just scary. I feel happy having a vaild site. :P

Not surprised you're angry Cav!

The only thing that I'm going to say, for some reason, in his defense is that maybe he has no clue of what he is doing.

Oh, and the preceding paragraph is no EXCUSE, since if you don't know something, you bloody ask.

Sorry, getting abrasive.

That guy in the picture is a "pastor"? I hope the thing he is putting in his mouth has no religious significance and the picture is meant to be silly. Otherwise I'm going to be very afraid.

Cav: have you talked to him to ask him to get those things off his place asap, or to at least offer an explanation/apology?

No, I haven't talked to him yet, I just now came back here after something like 4 months of absence, and stumbled across this whole mess.

I'm thinking he'll come in here and read this thread, and then I will have a few choice words to say.

Well, asking probably wouldn't work, considering how he's too young and/or illiterate to actually know what the hell punctuation actually is.

Yes, and his choice words would probably be not only limited but incomprehensible.

My sympathies, Cavanoskus (and welcome back, by the way). I hope he just does the right thing and doesn't draw it out into a long, public outcry, as some might do.

Amen to that, Kel. This kid, though, doesn't strike me as bombastic as others. I hope he listens to Cav, and learns from this so that he starts asking for permission.

There seems to be a mentality in some circles that if it's on the Internet, it's free. I doubt the misappropriation in this case was malicious.

Since his largest audience is likely to be from these parts anyway, I think there is enough leaning force to make the pictures disappear or the proper credit appear.

"Malicious?" As if he purposefully stole my artwork to defame me in some way? No. Not a chance. This rarely happens, so it can rarely be said that theft of artwork is "malicious." I never claimed he had anything against me, or anyone else.

What he is doing, however, is posting a drawing of mine in two different places, and crediting me in neither. He doesn't even link to my site where the artwork came from, and that piece has only been up for a couple months, so I KNOW that's where he got it from; he's not stealing from someone else who stole, in other words. He ignored obvious copyright warnings, and a message which strictly forbids others from using my work without permission.

So, no, not "malicious." Just ignorant, childish, and too stupid to read the text on the page he steals from. Such shortcomings are no excuse to ignore obvious directions.

Maybe he found my site through the Spiderweb boards...in which case, didn't it ever occur to him that I might see it? Did he even think I'd mind, considering the fact that he seems too idiotic to have even read the words next to the pictures?

I am starting to think that no one under the age of 10 should be allowed on the internet...and this kid isn't helping.

Since he's joined while you were absent, he might also have just found the site through Google. Odd coincidence, but there you go.

Of course, if he *did* come through here... well, they say stupidity is infinite... :rolleyes:

Since this topic was locked at the previous post,
why haven't Imbam or Alorael killed it yet?

I was considering using his email to sign up for multitudes of stuff, but decided not to. That'd be too cruel. I think.
