"I saw my photos on tumblr with the logo cropped off and the picture edited, and I don’t feel good about that… It’s like that you know……..I even wrote the guidelines (about no cropping the logo on the image nor editing the photo) on the bulletin board in different languages. If you still cannot read that, then how do you want me to write it, are you aliens, Tumblr!!!!!! Some people just assume that they can edit my photos just like that!!!!!!!!!!”

It’s possible that you don’t understand what I feel about my photos getting edited. But why do you place your logo after cutting NEVERLAND’s logo and editing it weirdly, what the heck is that about… Did you think that you can just do that with MY photos?? Though I am thankful for you looking at my lacking and badly taken photos, I am very very angry..!!!

Neverland’s Ari.

-

So last night (140216), Neverland’s master-nim (basically the owner/ the one that runs the fansite), was in rage after seeing the photos that she took with all of her efforts just got edited with her neverland logo cropped off, on tumblr. Looking at her tweets from last night, you really can tell, she was on fire. (For those of you who doesn't know who/what Neverland is.. Neverland is a Youngmin-based fansite ran by Ari, the one responsible for taking and providing us with God-like photos of Boyfriend's dumbest kid Youngmin.)


Taking high-quality fantaken photos and running a fansite is not an easy thing to do. They put a lot of hardwork and effort into this just to allow other people, like us international fans, see them even just though pictures. And also, it costs a lot of money. Just imagine being in their shoes for once. Wouldn’t you feel the same if you see your photos that you took with all of your hard work just being edited and not being credited back to you?

These photos that we take for granted was taken with their hard work and great amount of effort. They were the ones who went to all these different events, performances, shows, etc etc to take these high-quality images, not us. They were the ones who had to travel back and forth the country just to attend an overseas event/performance to take photos, not us. They were the ones who poured all of their hard work in taking these wonderful photos, not us. And they definitely deserve all the credit for doing so. Don't you think so?



And that’s the exact reason why they prohibited cropping off their logo from their photos. Some of the fansites are fine with their images being re-uploaded somewhere else, as long as you credit it back to them. But editing and cropping off their logo, that’s what they cannot, and never allow. This just doesn’t go with Neverland. This applies to every fansite/fantaken photos.


In the past, I know a fansite closed down just because of this reason; because their logo got cropped off from their OWN picture. All he/she wanted was to be credited for his/her hard work and effort.. But then, some people just kept on breaking these simple rules. I guess the master-nim of this fansite just got really tired and annoyed of telling these people repeatedly about the prohibition of cropping their logos and editing it. And therefore, the fansite closed down.


I know you don’t want this to happen in the future. Just imagine not being able to see any high-quality photos of your bias or favourite group. Just imagine your favourite fansite, whether it is burning up!, MySirius, superhero, neverland, anotherK, romeo, withM or any other fansites existent, closing down just because of this reason. Wouldn’t you feel sad and irritated at the same time?


But we can avoid this from happening in the future by doing little things.

-Make sure that you read all the rules of that specific fansite first before you re-post any fantaken photos somewhere else. Make sure that they allow you to move their photos.
-It is preferred that you ONLY edit official and news(?) photos.
-It’s okay to edit these photos, AS LONG AS YOU CREDIT THEM, and as long as the master-nim/fansite is alright with it. And also, DO NOT put another logo on the photo and DO NOT re-distribute the photo as your own.
-Never crop the logo on a fantaken photo. NEVER.
-Do not make gifs out of fantaken videos either. If you want to do so, just make sure that the master-nim/fansite allow people to edit their videos. Ask the master-nim even!
-Spread the word. Share this post. I am pretty sure a lot of us don’t know about these 'rules'. So it’s best if we create awareness in our fandom and the whole kpop community to try and minimise the reoccurrence of these incidents and the possible shut downs of our loving fansites.
-If you see anyone breaking these 'rules', tell them. You don't want your favourite fansite to shut down, right? Cause I certainly don't.


So that’s it. I just got really annoyed last night after seeing Neverland’s master-nim in rage because of some people breaking the rules. I hope you learned something from this.

Aah, I've warned these tumblr users so many times for editing and cropping out watermarks. But their response was "I love editing" "I'm only editing for fans" "if you don't like it then don't reblog it". It gets me so angry that they're being so selfish and rude towards another person's property.

I still dont understand why tumblr edits are so important that they ignore that it is other people's photos n claim it as their own just because they adjust the hue & exposure. Srsly.

What's worse is that they don't feel the slightest remorse over it, even when they've been repeatedly told of the situation these fansite masters have to go through in order to take photos  <_<

Seriously, they are so bad. . They should not take no 'steal' others people hard work. . . Even though I don't use or know how Tumblr work (blur blur)* , but stealing other people work and editing them without their concern plus not credit to them back is like act of criminal. . I feel bad for those fan sites. . Hah~ some people really should be more responsible and have some manner . .

This is really bad. :( I feel sad with NEVERLAND-ari.

Here I don't want too blame others. I will use this to warn myself.

though I'm not very active on tumblr (I'm in learning to use it) and just only re-blog, but I will remember to ALWAYS give credit if I edited picture and upload it to facebook or twitter from now on.

I was really following the Burning-UP Master-nim and I don't want she (or another fansite) to be closed down.

This should be a heads up for everyone. I really don't use tumblr and I don't edit anything but it is sad that this editting/cropping logo issue has come to the point that a master-nim (Ari) of a well know fansite (NEVERLAND) has to pretty much scold Bestfriends  :( 

 

We know how little fansites are active and left so we must treat them with respect and really understand the effort they make to be able to give us amazing pictures of Boyfriend.

 

Well, let's create conscience to all Bestfriends out there :)

Lesson learned ^_^

Too bad, I edited photos before but I put credit(s) of the owner(s) of the picture(s) on the edited picture(s) itself, not removing the logo of the owner of the photo(s) and put my name on the photo(s) itself to identify who edited the photo just in case someone wants to get a hold of me (like if they want me to remove/delete the edited photo or scold me or get angry on what I did, etc)...

That is why I'm not going to use any fan owned photo(s) for editing purposes now. Instead I'm just gonna use those updated from Boyfriend and Starship official sites themselves so to minimize disrespect or something. But of course, I will definitely won't forget to credit BF for the sources I use ^_^

That's it. I hope we all take note of this seriously. :)
Cheers to all of us ^_^

i have this rule that if i see a fantaken picture on tumblr and the posts says: DO NOT EDIT i don't save it, simple as that. i only save news photos or offical photos. i avoid fantaken photos when and if i can help it. but sometimes they slip in there. my BF picture folder is highly lacking for the above reasons.
sig is down will put back soon thank you!
