Aw Haddrel, now you got the taste how it was to maintain a pairing FC as big as IRFC. It surprise me that the mods didn't jump in the instant Orihime's name is mentioned in the thread, isn't that like the biggest taboo in BA? Well the bright side is at least you won't get your post deleted and then get warned by mods like we used to be. It is very unfortunate that your supposed partners didn't provide you enough supports, thankfully in my days all the other owners are dependable. Teamwork is pivotal, no matter what the situation between us when it comes to maintaining the FC Syn, Annie, Nav and me support each other, communication and friendship means everything and most importantly their love towards the pairing plays a very important part also. If I remember correctly half of the current owners now are also part-time IchiOris no?
And while I can understand new comers who weren't familiar with the forum rules to once or twice slipped into "one liners" or "spamming/chatting/OOC" category, I could never tolerate stealing. Isn't crediting sources for taking what you didn't make / found by yourself is a common courtesy practiced even in real life? Why just because it's the internet things must be different? That is the reason why I can't tolerate even new comers to steal things without crediting because it is a common sense
Speaking of tumblr, Annie and Syn hated the place with passion because there is the main place where uncredited things and arts go haywire, but you see even in nasty places like tumblr YOU STILL CAN CREDIT. Seriously no matter what the media is if people are honestly respecting their sources they will put the credit. And whenever the artists specifically said "this is a personal gift please don't use" why there are people who can't just respect that? IDEK
I think there are people who don't realize the gravity of the situation when we asked to please PLEASE do not spread what we got and simply accuses us as fame whores / BNF / whatnot. Seriously, none of us care about that, we just want to respect and protect our sources. Most of the time when we got goodies especially from Japanese friends who got them early we are personally asked by them to please keep it so it won't spread because it would endanger them, early means illegal and I don't have to explain that further do I?
Seriously what is the harm for people to just simply link their friends to the original place of the goods so they can read it for themselves instead of reposting it without credit at god knows where? Unless they want people to flock to their place instead of here ..... and they accused us as the fame whores? \(.___. )
