I'm really getting sick and tired of some of the people here on dA. There are some really awesome people on here, and others...not so much. I'm specifically talking about the severe RPers, and ESPECIALLY the art thieves.. (and NO, I'm not talking about the screenshot recolor artists...GTFO.).
Some people on here..take RPing way too seriously. Guys, RP is supposed to be fun. You know there's nothing wrong with adding some drama and suspense into the RP....that's what makes it interesting. But some people have taken it waaayy too far...you know, OCs aren't real. I know that some of us probably wish they were (I know I do), but that'll never happen. So there's no reason to get in fights over it..there's no need to hate each other over it. If you're going to act like that, then you need to get the fuck off the internet. Immature people like you don't belong here. Seriously people...CUT IT OUT or GET OUT.
As for the art thieves...WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU THINKING!? We KNOW what you've done. Stealing character designs, coloring/tracing over someone else's art....WE CAN TELL THAT ITS NOT YOURS. STOP ACTING SO DAMN OBLIVIOUS. For example, CherryBombOfficial (YES, I WILL POINT OUT PEOPLE FROM NOW ON.. >>;; ) has stolen OC designs from Beetleflight...Courtney here was the first one to design the Skunkmunk, Coonmunk, and Opossumunk.. CherryBombOfficial here has stolen the Skunkmunk and Opossumunk designs...even one of the character's name's was "Flash", named after Courtney's Flash. She has also been tracing over Courtney's and oSnapItsKatelyn's art pieces and turned them into her own OCs, and posted them on Photobucket. There are TONS of other art/character thieves around here as well. I swear people, MAKE YOUR OWN GOD DAMN DESIGNS. I'M TIRED OF IT.
I don't know about the rest of you, but I don't like seeing my friends leaving dA/YouTube because of reasons like this...please...PLEASE...KNOCK IT OFF!!!!
I'm sorry Jordy but pretty much most of the Chipmunk fans do that these days, but most of the time it's stupid 10 year old kids coming into the fandom and just making the older fans look like idiots. (and no I'm not talking about the 'old fans' who used to like the 80's version only, I'm talking about people like You, Me and ect...) That's why I don't RP much anymore, cause I've grown out of it and I want really nothing to do with those idiotic children and the drama. So if they're being immature and embarrassing the fandom we should just ignore them, cause it's really not worth it.
I TOTALLY agree with you! people do take rp to far and i have to admit when i first joined i didn't get that stealing art was tracing (i was soo dumb and still am) so i traced over LeadUnicorns Art then people were putting bad comments on it so i removed it and swore never to do it again! its was the worst DA experience ever!
Thank you. Thank you thank you thank you thank you. ~Crispritz and I have been dealing with this shiz for far too long now and I'm ready to put a stop to it. I feel like a nazi doing this, but if I see a character like.. identical, I'm going to flip out on them.. hardcore |D 'Cause I mean, she had a coonmunk named TheCOon I mean... really? :I It looked just like Coon and the hoodie was a Monster Energy Drink hoodie as well. -.-' Just different colors. THEN she had Flash the Skunkmunk and claimed it was the first skunkmunk to exist... ;; My baby</3 Not to mention making the Opossimunkz... Bleeehh.. I feel so unoriginal, even though I... AM the original... Fffff... why do people seriously have to do this?
Ugh. Yeah, that's true. Dx It seems like people only make OC's nowadays to be popular... which is totally the opposite of what people should be aiming for. Plus, if people are seriously seeking out popularity, they should go for originality... it's the only way!
Yeah...they need to build up their own reputation, and not try to steal someone else's...like Jordy, kinda. She's not that popular, but many know her....she's original, and wasn't copied off of anyone else. Seriously people, its not that hard to come up with something! -.-
Yess. D; It's really horrible... I've seen people with my own eyes get ripped-off of and just saw them... completely leave. And then their copier literally takes their reputation and credit. It's saaad.. ;;
You know what I don't like to see my friends leaving over? Redesigns. Youtube and Facebook have been Redesigned a million times, and they'll be redesigned a million more times, I can't stand when people bitch about it and leave the site and all their friends just because it's slightly more inconvenient and difficult to get used to.
I don't do very much RP On DA, especially with OC's when I RP, I do it on Forums, not on here, but I've never had any issues with People taking RP too seriously. Maybe it's because I RP with people I know can figure out how. Also, I've never had much of a problem with Art Thieves, because most of my Art (Except of course My OC stuff) are Characters from Animé or Video games, things that potential art thieves can get their hands on from other places, and my OC's are a tad strangely drawn, so I'm not so worried about it.
I wasn't really talking about you, here...I know you're not going anywhere. I didn't RP with you that much anyway, so you not RPing doesn't bother me all that much. But you're never too old for RP, lol..
