In general, a polite and clear
email will get you a faster and more positive response than an email written
in l337 (or like it was written by an 11 year-old).Written Works Policies:
I speak and write English and traditional Chinese, and have a basic
grasp of Japanese. Even if English is not your native language, don't hesitate
to email me, I promise I won't bite.
ART USAGE POLICY
To make it short, due to the rash of people stealing art/using it without
permission lately, I am changing my usage policy.
Do NOT use my art without prior express written permission. Do not
steal, copy, trace, color, make icons/layouts/prints/signatures out of my
pictures. It's utterly ridiculous to have to do this for fanart, I know, but
the situation is starting to seriously aggravate me.
I'm not naive enough to think this will make anyone stop, but I hope to make
them think twice. This is also my disclaimer that I will have no tolerance
for people who steal art, or think it's ok to beg forgiveness rather than
ask permission. If I find anything of mine that is used/modified/whatever
without my permission, I will NOT give you the benefit of the doubt. I will
log as many helpdesk tickets and policy violations and comments as it takes
to have it taken down.
I will also most likely NOT grant usage permission any more. Please keep
that in mind when you request it.
Original Works:Art Works Policies:
Original Written works are NOT to be used off this site. The
only possible exception is if you are the co-author.
As far as I'm concerned, fan-works should be shared. I am
usually very easygoing about other people using my fan-stuff as long as they
are not claiming that they created it themselves.
If you want to archive my fanfics, please do the following:
1. Email me with the request. Let me know where you are
planning on archiving it (that means including a link).
2. Include my name, email, and a link to my site on the
page where you have the fanfics.
3. Email me back with a confirmation and a link where
the works are posted. That way I can keep track of things. :)
Original Works:Links Policy:
Same policy as Original Written Works: The original artworks
are NOT to be used off this site. The only possible exception is if you are
IF you have received permission from me for fanart usage,
please note the below. Otherwise DO NOT use my fanart for anything.
1. Please do NOT have the image modified -
i.e. cropping, shrinking, taking out my signature, coloring, etc.
2. If you're using it for an icon, layout, etc, I
would like to have a copy of it (and might possibly use it...)
3. Whenever possible, I would prefer a link to my
archives instead of having my art archived on some other fansite.
If you are the person that I did the gift-art for, then you are free to do
whatever you want to the picture as you please except claiming to have drawn
If you want to use giftart, please get permission from the receiver
of the gift art first, then email me.
My site is Link-free. An email letting me know is appreciated
but not required, but it does give me a chance to ask for your site and
possibly link you back. :D
