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.

i understand what you mean.. you just want to spread NEWS love around and not asking anything back but stll, these few little things matter (because of the effort you made to make fandom stuffs sharable)

some people are just hungry for attention but lazy as hell so they end up taking people stuff and claim that its theirs.. not just photos but jwebs too...

i admire you for wanting to still keep this public - a true sincere spirit of a NEWS fan ne.. <333

Just wanted to say thanks ... and if you're curious I have added an example of one of the things people do.

You've got it exactly ... people just want attention and it's sad that they'll basically lie and cheat to get it. But I'm determined that those people aren't going to spoil it for everyone. I don't own these images, and neither does anyone who tries to put their watermark or name on it, or demand credit or secret handshakes to download them.

And mostly I just shake my head and move on, but I finally realised that even if I wasn't going to make 'rules' I could hope that people might have enough respect to understand that we know there are people out there trying to build reputations all on stuff they've taken from other people and trying to pretend it's their own work.

I totally agree with you
and your scan is really perfect.

I did not add you.
I hope you will add me back.

Thank you very much.

Hi there!
First of all, I cannot say enough thanks for your generosity in sharing NEWS especially Yamapi in this community. I believe that you are one of the most hardworking ones who not only uploads but constantly ensures to update people about NEWS.
It is sad though that proper behavior are observed by people who take credit and repost the work that people like you painstakingly do and claim as their own.
It is just all about respect. I don't see any reason why people need to claim people's hardwork as their own when it's a lot better to just direct them through links to the people who really made them.
I thank you so much for keeping me closer to NEWS & Yamapi and I always appreciate all the efforts that put in making all these works uploaded.

Respect is right. As I said, I am not demanding my name appear everywhere, but I'm always grateful and appreciative when people do. But I just felt it was time for me to make a bit of a public statement about my feelings on the subject. And believe me, I've had a few friends pushing me to say something for quite a while.

But it really does come down to the fact that I love and support NEWS and I know what it's like to be searching for stuff or hoping that someone might post something I'm hoping to see. And while I'm well aware that's the reason my scans do make their way around the world, it's a big pity that some people can't pass them on in the spirit they're given.

I just wanna tell you that I appreciate you scanning all these pics and then sharing them with the news fan community. You really have great scans, although most of the time I don't download them (sometimes I do), I do always look at them.

And I agree with you, it's pretty rude for someone else to claim these scans as their own. If they wanna share, they should direct people to your journal. Watermarks just ruin pics.

Thanks for being so giving! And asking people to stop taking credit for your work is something that just makes sense.

And you're welcome to repost and share the scans with others ... I don't want to stop that, but I don't enjoy seeing others try and get attention and demand credit only for themselves on the back of things I've posted here.

waahh, you do a lot of work to touch up the scans O: that's really awesome~

as an artist, I don't really like it when people take my drawings without giving me credit, but it really pisses me off when they say THEY did it. u_u

Drawings are much worse than scans. I just clean them up (with some creative input when bits are missing in a spread for example) but the images themselves don't belong to me.

Some people are shameless though, aren't they?

i agree to others when they said your scans are their favorite! and i also admire your work to do some editing and stuff.. that's why i hope the people who's taking credit from what your work should change their attitude, it's rude and also selfish.

thanks for you lovely scans, and i hope those rude people would stop you from doing this.. *hugs*

I'm hoping that a few people will be made aware of the fact that I know what they've been doing, and maybe they'll think twice. Or maybe people who visit here may realise that there's a good chance that some of the images they find in many forums, in many languages, may actually have started out here.

I certainly don't want people to have to jump through hoops because I remember what it was like being a new fan and trying to find stuff. So I would like someone, like I was a few years ago, to find a whole pile of goodies just waiting for them.

And how does it celebrate or promote your fandom to make things difficult for people to get? So I'm still running the 'open house' policy - and sometimes I'm amazed by how much stuff I've posted.

I think you're totally right and that your way of thinking is just great. =)
Most of people can't remember where they took all of their pictures, but I'm sure everybody can remember that they didn't scan themeselves these pictures...
Thank you for your work and... for thinking this way. ^^ (Sorry about English mistakes, I hope you can still understand what I mean. ^^')

And your comment is so true ... if you don't remember where you got something you do know that you didn't scan it yourself...

Thanks again.

Hi Inala, your scans are awesome!!!
I don't know if this is correct but what about signing the scans with something like "scan by Inala" I agree that most of people can't remember where they took all of their pictures so with something little like a signature they could remember it.
By the way if this picture is from you... thank you so much ♥♥♥

I have a friend who's been pushing me to put something little in the images ... but I don't want to do that, it's kind of like a watermark. And it doesn't matter if you don't remember it was my scan, but like someone else commented, you do know that it's not your scan.

A few people have told me that they have folders where they keep my scans ... which is nice, but it's only the people trying to claim them for themselves that worry me.

It's very satisfying to put those pages together to see the full image. Sometimes they're the best images. Thanks.

Thank you for always share; although I don't usually took any but I just love to see the preview of it and its one of the best ><

I do really hope that people out there knows how to be thankful as well as to respect other people's work.

Hang in there! ^_^
