Welcome / Welcome Back

There are a few things I feel I need to say regarding the scans that I share on this journal.

Up until now all my posts have been public and open with no restrictions or rules.

Thank you for your comment and support and sorry for taking so long to reply - very busy time of year for me.

I'm not surprised to see my scans turn up in all sorts of places, it's been like that for a long time. But s I've explained here, it doesn't really bother me unless someone else wants to get credit for them - I just don't understand that. It's like watching a movie but then turning up to accept the Oscar for best actor ...

Thanks again and Happy New Year!

The person who has stolen your scans of "Short But Sweet" pamphlet s*cks... -_-#

Inala-chan (may I call you like that? ^^'), you know what? XD
I have just seen my scans of Tegoshi Ai Nante PV shop photos posted somewhere. But you were credited!! o_O Because it looks like your scans! (white borders cut) lol
(Now I laugh but when I saw it, it wasn't funny for me, who spend hours to provide those HQ scans...)

People are careless about credits... :/

Ah, it's a difficult thing, and even people with the best intentions get it wrong sometimes. And while it is the risk we take for posting anything to the internet ... it's not too much to hope that people pay attention to what they're doing.

And it seems like no one really knew where those scans came from. Glad to hear you did one of the other sets. I certainly can't afford to buy all of them :)

Ohhh my...I'm terribly sorry you're having to go through this. In a T&T fandom I belong to, it was happening to several people, incl. myself in others taking scans or stuff, only claiming them be theirs later. *sigh*

It's so sad to see this happening 'round n'round again everywhere I look. Before, I only stayed within my so-called T&T fandom bubble. Since then, I've been no longer a part of it no more, as I too was a victim myself of that happening to my own scans off my former blog before joining LJ. Yes, it's a sad notion to see how so many of these types of things are happening all around us off the Net but, you know what? It's an unfortunate given fact these days that ppl do this type of thing.

It's sickening and frustrating as all heck but, I also agree w/u on scans being 'original', meaning from Johnny's Ent. itself (or the mag companies). They're NOT our scans, and certainly people shouldn't put tags on them either. I used to b4 w/my own scans I used to post on my LJ but, not anymore. After thinking about it, it's only sensible and logical they're NOT my pictures to begin with, as I myself didn't take the photographs by myself (altho I really wished I could or did...hahahaha).

Point being is, in short, I totally agree w/you on this topic in leeching/stealing stuff what's not your own and it's so sad to see it happen to wonderful people like yourself. Good luck and keep up the hard work on your end. I'm just eternally grateful you're 1) still here, and 2) you're LJ isn't locked or whatever the case.

Let's all keep our chins up high and I guess we just only can for the best ne in the future? XDD <33 *huug*

I LOVE your LJ btw (and banner @___@)! I love NEWS too as well as Takki from Tackey & Tsubasa, as I'm a HUGE Takki-fan. Can I add u? U can do the same if you'd like as well. =D *peace sign*

Thank you for your comment and support and sorry for taking so long to reply - very busy time of year for me.

Yup so many things just seem to happen over and over again, and I'm not naive enough to believe that anyone has any real control over anything once it's posted to the net. But I just felt that I'd reached a point where I realised I'd never really made my position clear and you can only hope that a few more people pay attention and understand that none of us really OWN any of this stuff.

So it does puzzle me why people feel they have the right to control access to photographs, magazines, images etc that they don't even own. If you don't want to share with people, then just keep it private - the net is a public place.

This is just my little corner of the net where I do my bit to help promote NEWS - T&T is also close to my heart. In 2008 I saw them in concert and Enbujou in the same trip.

Was very excited to see them together again, at last at Countdown!

Would definitely like to be friends.

I'm sorry that people are taking your credit, because it does take a lot of work to do what you do, and without you, a lot of us would not be able to see the scans.
Thank you so very much for all your hard work!
Seriously ♥
Jan. 7th, 2010 09:08 am (UTC)
Thank you for your comment and support and sorry for taking so long to reply - very busy time of year for me.

Fortunately getting up close with pictures of the gorgeous men of NEWS makes it very enjoyable work!

Happy New Year!
Dec. 14th, 2009 05:29 pm (UTC)
You rock big time!! :) Thank you very very much :) thank you for all the pretty scans :)

Dec. 14th, 2009 09:57 pm (UTC)
I totally agree with you.
I must say that I don't put a comment on every post I take photos, but I'm not redistributing anything (except by msn with my two sisters ^ ^') so I think that's okay.
And now I thank you again for every file you give to us.
Thanks again~
Jan. 7th, 2010 09:10 am (UTC)
Thank you for your comment and support and sorry for taking so long to reply - very busy time of year for me.

Don't worry, feel free to share around any of the scans here - that's part of the point of posting them. We need to share the NEWS love!

Happy New Year!
Dec. 19th, 2009 04:39 am (UTC)
Wow that's horrible... I'm sorry to hear that.
You deserve soooo much credit for what you do!
I don't see how people can't just give proper respects!
I have never reposted any of your pictures and if I ever do I'll be sure to credit you. And don't you worry, if ever I notice anyone using your original pictures without even crediting you, I'll be sure to give 'em a proper nagging!
Seriously though, don't people know how much work you do just to spread NEWS love? I really do appreciate your work though. Don't get these people let you down. -___-

Re: Wow that's horrible... I'm sorry to hear that.
Thank you for your comment and support and sorry for taking so long to reply - very busy time of year for me.

It's been really encouraging to me to have so many supportive comments from people. It's certainly not a chore to spend so much time looking at close up images of the men of NEWS. But I am often disappointed in people who make such a fuss about getting credit for themselves but not returning the favour to others.

However, my main goal is to spread the NEWS love, and I'm still determined not to let a few thoughtless people spoil anyone's fun.

Thanks again and Happy New Year!
Jan. 5th, 2010 06:47 pm (UTC)
I really love your scans, because I know you work very hard on them, maybe I haven't comment in all the scans that I take from you, sorry about that, hope you don't mind about it m(-.-)m.

Right now I am starting a new page dedicated to News, so i would like to ask for your permission to share your scans there. And of course I will give you the credit necessary.

Thanks for all.
Jan. 7th, 2010 08:44 am (UTC)
Hi, yes, please feel free to use my scans - especially on a page to support and promote NEWS. Thanks, and I'd love to see your page too!

wow, I'm amazed people are so stupid...demanding credit where credit should not be given =/

Well, if it makes any difference I'm super thankful for your posts and your hard work. I was simply amazed at the before and after pictures! Thank you for supplying us with good-quality scans. You're the best!
Mar. 4th, 2010 08:23 am (UTC)
Sorry I'm behind here, but thank you for your comments. I guess I included the before and after pictures because to me it's not just throwing magazine pages or photos on a scanner, it's about making a nice finished product. And I'm always glad to hear that people do appreciate that. Thanks again.

Thanks for your kind words. And I'm very happy to hear that you're sharing these scans with other fans around the world. The NEWS boys are so lovely to look at - more people need to see them! Glad you're enjoying the scans ... I'm anxiously waiting for the new calendar to arrive too.

Lots more lovely scans to come! Thanks again for your kind words.
Mar. 10th, 2010 12:13 pm (UTC)
I want to say thank you to you!
It's a great job you are doing by providing HQ scans for the other NEWS fans and that you put so much love and time into this!
Mar. 14th, 2010 04:27 am (UTC)
Thanks for your comment. And it's not the worst job spending a long time looking closely at pictures of the NEWS members! And it's rewarding to know that people are enjoying them. Thank you!
Mar. 17th, 2010 12:32 am (UTC)
Hey...I just drop by to say good job!
Your scans are just so clear compared to what I've seen so far.How in the world did you do the whole cut-jigsaw thingy?
haha...Did ya use some kind of software? Cause those
scans turns out great!
Many thanks again.Cheers!
Mar. 17th, 2010 05:40 am (UTC)
Thanks ... as for putting the posters together I just use Photoshop to put all the pieces in one document and move them around, line them up, rub out bits and pieces to soften the edges and then flatten it all into one image. Then I go back and edit it to clean things up, get rid of any folds and creases and made a few adjustments.
Mar. 20th, 2010 10:46 am (UTC)

Mar. 20th, 2010 12:15 pm (UTC)
Thank you for your message.

Yes, I'm very happy if you want to use my scans on your forum. Very happy for you to share the pictures.

Thank you for asking!
Apr. 2nd, 2010 07:10 pm (UTC)
Wow, this has to be frustrating. Maybe I don't do this "work" but I know it's not that simple and takes time to fix pictures and scans. I really apreciated your amability and your hardwork. Thank you and I hope people would appreciate this more.

Apr. 3rd, 2010 08:29 am (UTC)
Thanks for your kind words. It's certainly not a chore making sure the NEWS boys look gorgeous, but sometimes it does get frustrating. So it is always nice to know that my efforts are appreciated.
May. 10th, 2010 02:46 pm (UTC)
thank you for taking time out of your day to scan.
May. 12th, 2010 02:52 pm (UTC)
Hi, I added you so I can follow all the amazing scans you post, thank you very very much for your hard work.
see you ;P
May. 25th, 2010 01:45 am (UTC)
i'm new here at LJ.. and i'm a big fan og NEWS especially tegoshi yuya... it's really disappointing that people do these kind of things... people like you who works hard to share and spread tne NEWS love don't deserve this! i saw your scans and they all look fantastic!! thank you so much for all the hard work!! ^__^
Jun. 14th, 2010 11:27 am (UTC)
Ah please forgive me for taking so long to reply to your kind comment. Part of the reason I made this point was to just let people know that I am aware that that sort of thing goes on, and that I choose to keep doing my regular scans anyway. Plus you know, one scan is not always just like another XD Thanks again.
May. 25th, 2010 01:46 am (UTC)
aah..! one more thing...! i added you up!! yoroshiku nee.. :)
Jun. 8th, 2010 07:10 am (UTC)
I really love your scan , beautiful ,very clear vision and not watermark and I want to say big thank you for non-watermark. It's sad when you find someone not even respect an easy rule and understand now why many communities always lock for only friend.

I can't help you but I want you to know that I always support you ^^
Jun. 14th, 2010 11:36 am (UTC)
Thanks for your kind words and your support. I really, really don't like watermarks, especially ones that deface the picture. And like I said, scanning the image doesn't give you the ownership to do that when the real owner of the photo didn't do it either.

Good news is that my frustration level is at a much lower point than it was when I made this post originally, but it's been very interesting and rewarding to get everyone's comments. So thanks again.
Jun. 9th, 2010 04:56 am (UTC)
i've just realized that you not only scan it, but also edit it as well. thanks XDD
yeah, i agree with you, repost but no credit, same as stealing.. :(
and it became worst if that person doing hotlink..

afterall, thanks a loooot for your hardwork! ^^ *hugging*
Jun. 14th, 2010 11:41 am (UTC)
Thanks for your comment. Yes, I don't just scan the images but I try and make them the best quality that I can. And I don't think a really big scan is necessarily a better scan, not when they were only designed to be viewed on a magazine page, rather than as a giant poster.

And I don't mind people sharing teh scans so much, but wanting credit for themselves but not giving it to me or others - that's the point that really frustrates me. And I never refuse anyone who asks me if they can repost to another forum or community in any language.

Thanks again.
Jun. 19th, 2010 04:11 am (UTC)
Thank you for a bunch!!! I appreciated that what have you done for all NEWS fans...I love the quality of your scans...it's awesome... and again THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!
Jul. 2nd, 2010 02:16 am (UTC)
Thanks for leaving a comment. Glad you're enjoying the scans. I'm glad we have two sets of magazines to look forward to every month, and they all definitely take a good photo. I definitely enjoy scanning them every month.
Jul. 3rd, 2010 10:10 am (UTC)
hi .
hi ms. inala :)) I'm new here in lj. I decided to create an account here to formally say thank you because of you I can get the latest pictures of yamapi :)). It is because of you that I come up on an idea to have an account here :)) My deepest gratitude to you. thank you! :))
Jul. 6th, 2010 10:03 am (UTC)
Re: hi .
Thanks for your comment. Very glad you're enjoying the scans ... and well, Yamapi is very lovely thing to look at isn't he? XD

Hi inala! (or murasaki, whichever you prefer to go by)
I'm from Love Song Forums and I was wondering if we could have your permission to repost your images onto our forum in the MELODY. You could post them yourself if you'd prefer that, but if you don't want to, we can rehost and post them with credits to you (:
Please let us know soon!
Thank you!!
Jul. 6th, 2010 10:23 am (UTC)
Re: credits, Love Song

Thanks for your message. Please feel free to repost any images that you'd like. No problems.
Jul. 11th, 2010 05:28 am (UTC)
watermarks are really bothersome, and if those scans arent even their, well, I understand why you are so sad about it.
Aug. 22nd, 2010 06:10 am (UTC)
Thanks for the comment and sorry for taking so long to reply ... I just hadn't realised how much time had gone by. But thank you for taking the time to comment.
Jul. 18th, 2010 04:01 pm (UTC)
though i'm quite an idiot at identifying these copyrights, nevertheless I think that claiming what's others to be yours is a downright immoral action.

Hopefully these fans will realise their mistakes.
Fandom is a place meant for fostering friendship through common interests, not to infringe others' works.

Thank you for sharing your scans as always. ^^
Aug. 22nd, 2010 06:22 am (UTC)
Thanks for your comment and please forgive me for not responding sooner. I think all the sudden NEWS news has had me a bit distracted.

But yes, I don't own the images, no one in fandom does ... but I don't understand exactly what it can be that other people want credit for when they put their own name on my scans. Credit for finding them - but nothing here is locked. It's open to all.

Unfortunately, it seems to come back to wanting credit for the scans themselves.

I totally agree that fandom should be about finding new friendships through common interests and I have made some wonderful friends through fandom.
