ATTENTION TEEN WOLF FANDOM:
I made a post about this a week or so ago, but I just got this message, so I figured it was probably time for another one since the problem is still ongoing.
WE HAVE A THIEF IN OUR MIDST.
teenwolfonpoint.tumblr.com is continuing to repost people’s edits without credit, and apparently ignored some complaints that they stop.
Reblog this. Spread the word. People spend a lot of time on their work and deserve credit for it. They do not deserve to have it taken by someone else.
Take some time to scroll through @teenwolfonpoint to make sure your work has not been reposted without credit. If work and you know specifically to whom it belongs, please let them know. If anyone has any extra time on their hands, it would be cool if they could reverse google image some of the reposted work in order to find who originally created it so they can be informed.
REPORT THIS BEHAVIOR. Email email@example.com. Include links to both the original post of the work on your blog and the stolen work posted at teenwolfonpoint
Tumblr can apparently a little iffy with this sort of thing when art and edits are made from screenshots, still, and scenes from shows or movies (since the person who did the edit does not own the original content). I’ve heard stories where the matter is simply ignored and where the original posts was also deleted. However, I have, on several occasions, reported the uncredited reposting of many of my edits and gifsets and have never had anything deleted, and the thief almost always had their posts deleted and, in some cases, their account was deactivated.
So if you’re worried about you post being deleted, just make sure you have the images saved to your computer so you can repost them if that happens.
It is not okay that this is happening. It is not okay that this person is reposting, without credit, work that people took a considerable amount of time on. It is not okay that this person is completely ignoring requests that it stop.
I’ve scrolled through the blog and seen this person attempting to excuse their behavior with “if they want me not to repost their work they can tell me that”. This does not justify it. So many people might not know that their work is being reposted. Their unawareness of the fact that their work is being stolen and posted without credit does not make it okay.
