Hello dear yafuu,
We are contacting you because of a blog called dirtyonepiececonfessions[link].
Their blog is PACKED with unsourced art that has been reposted in its original state or with black bars all over it, which make it harder to find the original source.[link]
No small amount of people see these stolen posts since this blog apparently has over 2000 followers [link]
So here is why we are contacting you: this kind of behavior goes against tumblr rules.
“Misattribution or Non-Attribution. Make sure you always give proper attribution and include full links back to original sources. When you find something awesome on Tumblr, reblog it instead of reposting it. It’s less work and more fun, anyway. When reblogging something, DO NOT inject a link back to your blog just to steal attention from the original post.”[link]
“If we conclude that you are violating these guidelines, you may receive a notice via email. If you don’t explain or correct your behavior, we may take action against your account. “
If you notify the tumblr staff the blog might be taken down, or at least be forced to change her behavior.
You aren’t the only artist we are messaging right now. If enough people file a complaint against that blog it might help. We’d like to flag the blog ourselves but we are not sure if we’ll be taken into consideration since none of our art was stolen.
We’re asking you because of your art but also because of other artists; for example those on pixiv whose art is stolen without their knowledge. Please don’t let people like this admin ruin the joy in fanart and tumblr both.
Thank you very much.
Going Hong Kong for a business trip, celebrating my birthday in Hong Kong :P
There’s a One Piece road show in Hong Kong Time Square, hopefully I can find something interesting there.
