I shall not try to sound like a bitter old lady right now hehe
But as many of you know I am a huge fan of Laurelin Archives, and I love all the creative work I see there, whether is Stories, poems, videos, screenies and artwork. Recently (last months) I have seen an imflamation of work from Devian Art and other art sites, which I also follow. I recall lot of the originals and they do not have any attachment to Lotro and Laurelin Archives at all. Please be kind and credit the original artist when you post/rip pictures/artwork or media from other artists. This is quite important regards to Copyrights terms/issues and laws.
Why do I say this? Well as a musican and a drawer/painter myself, I know how much work that lies behind this, and I wouldnt be all to happy to see someone posted my work under their names without credit... If they credit me, I would be happy, it wouldnt be a problem at all.. This is all about common sense and respect..
This is perhaps most important: Remember that Laurelin Archives have members/artists that really PUT a lot of effort into their own artwork, and when they get drown into all the "spam" of unknowned pictures of unknowned professional artists, they will definetly loose motivation to post. This is not what Laurelin Archives should be about imo. It should be a site with a memberbase that use their own creativity and let the site blossom that way, in that way the site would be more interesting and look more professional.
Ok sorry my rant <3 I just ask that one should think twice before posting. atleast credit the original artist/site which I think is polite behaviour
