Alright, I was very upset yesterday and I’m still pretty upset today. So I need to get something off my chest.
I really didn’t want it to come to this, it’s not in my nature… but enough is enough.
I usually enjoy working with Photoshop, especially when it’s T&T related, but in times like this, I just want to call it quits…
I spent a lot of time and energy and love on each and every single one of my artworks. So when someone just came around and shamelessly stole them, why shouldn’t I be mad?! I shouldn’t even have to deal with this low moral issue to begin with if someone could just be at least one bit considerate.
If you’ve seen this 160×160 pix before, you’d probably have an idea by now what’s driving me insane.
The drama is under the cut for the sake of friends page even though I seriously want to rant about it out loud..as loud as I could, to be exact.
Ok, here goes. I made this ‘seductive’ icon to be my default avatar at T&T forum back when i posted Takki 10 variation icons there. I guess 10 icons are not enough for someone, since she obviously grabbed my default icon too.
By pure luck(?), yesterday I happened to click on one link that brought me to her blog, and my temper went through the roof on spot. Yes, WTF?! AGAIN?!
A little background here: In August 2006, she stole my LJ default icon before, but I was too naive back then that I just politely asked her to take it off, damn, I should have made a screencap for an evidence. Later on, she mentioned about it on one of the email she sent me (since I was stupid enough to agree to work on a banner for her, but that wasn’t the point here).
The point is: what made she think she’d get away this time?!
Furious beyond repair, I posted a short message on that chatbox, and then sent her a long email making her realize how pissed I was:
IT’S MINE! NOT YOURS!
I AM TOTALLY PISSED!
remove MY userpic from your site promptly.
I couldn’t believe it. YOU SHOULDN’T BE STEALING MY USERPICS LIKE THIS. YOU DID IT ONCE BEFORE WITH MY APPLE ICON, AND YOU DID IT AGAIN!!! DAMN IT REIKO, WHAT’S WRONG WITH YOU?! saving people’s userpic and post it up like this?! NO!!! THIS IS NOT ACCEPTABLE!!
see if this can jog your memory: http://community.livejournal.com/takkida
want me to dig up an email where you apologize to me about using my icon too? huh?! i sure can do!
Yea, my other username (besides Reiko) I use is akatsuru01. Btw, sooo sorry for the time I accidently used one of your icons w/out asking. (rem that incident long ago back in Ho!Summer time?) If you dun remember, I do. I felt sooo bad and I’m NOT that type of person. I guess I thot that no one would notice (or mind) but at the time, I was still ‘new’ to blogs n’stuff. So, I never knew proper etiquette when it came to blogging and snagging icons. Gomenasai! -_-
what an excuse, huh?! not that type of person? no one would notice or mind?! Guess what?! YOU DID IT AGAIN!!! WTF!! if you want an icon/banner/or whatever, make it yourself! don’t just grab mine!! You’re no longer NEW to the blogging world, you know how this works by now, you have no rights to touch/use other’s icons unless they share them! Same goes for MINE!
I give you til tonight 8/14, if it’s still there, i’ll bitch i’ll rant about it for sure!
TAKE IT OFF! and don’t ever touch my icons again!
I sounded like an ass on my email, but I don’t care. I have every damn rights to be angry. To me, this is a real slap in the face.
Oh and guess what? As expected, she removed that icon this morning (8/15) without a single apology, didn’t reply my email, and took me off her f-list which actually did me a favor as I don’t want to be friended with her anymore.
I love making graphics and want to share them to the T&T fandom, but this shamelessly steal crap pissed me off.
