This is your admin, Velisha.
I would like to address two issues that have been around for a while.
First: Uncredited Translation/Subtitles
We found some fans & fanbases in our dear fandom have been using other people’s translation/subtitles WITHOUT permission and proper credit. Even worse, they claim the translation/subtitles as their own work, covered/deleted the original watermark and enjoyed the praise from other fans for something that doesn’t belong to them.
Please remember any translation/subtitles are the work from generous translators who give their time and skills to help us understand the information. If it’s not yours, please don’t claim it as yours. If you want to use it or re-translate it into different language, please ask for permission first, then after the permission is granted, please put proper credit.
If this is still going on, the translators can stop translating anytime and you won’t be able to understand any more information. So please respect the works of others and always ask for permission.
Second: Personal use of IMYB Forum Logo & Edits
We also found some fans who use I’m Your Bestfriend Forum Logo (the round one) as their personal profile picture. The logo is designed and made only for the forum and to indentify us as a fanbase.
If you use it as your personal SNS profile pictures, then every information/status you post, can be mistaken as information from the forum. This can lead to misunderstanding and mistakes that can harm the forum as a fanbase.
Aside from the special Boyfriend 4th Anniversary 2015 logo/avatar that can be publicly used, we don’t allow the use of forum logo as your profile picture, especially if you are not part of forum staffs. This rule also applies to the usage of Forum layout header and any image with I’m Your Bestfriend Forum logo on it.
If you use our logo/edits for personal social media account, please change it. We will not give you any punishment whatsoever. We only ask you to change it.
