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.

Sometimes I just have to be a bit more determined than at other times, but it's not too often.

I do believe that there's not enough words to explain what I really feel. Speaking of that, I think all comments mentioned above say all as well.

I'd like to thank for your hard work and your generosity to the fandom. I know just thank you is not enough at all. Well, please kindly accept my sincere appreciation for what you've done so far.

Your scans are always one of the best! ♥

People really do this? They claim to have scanned the images that you put the time and effort into scanning? Just... wow. That really bothers me.

I don't repost images, but I love downloading them and showing them off to my friends ("See? They're really pretty! look at these scans~"). So, I just want to thank you for all the effort you put into these files. <3

When I was new to the site, I do those things before, after learning from those; I learned the value of what you are pointing out.

To those people who do these things;
We hope that you'll be able to understand our feelings yo!

Otsukare for everything! Please continue on doing so!

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 ♥

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

Happy New Year!

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~

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!

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!

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.

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!

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.
