JSWTIS !! COMMENT IF YOU WANNA JOIN !!
recently, there have been art thefts from my art and from my icons. I know all of you know me from my icons, only, but I have a very old account here that had been here for exactly three years. throughout the stages of my art career, I have gotten more and more influenced with art while more and more theft has evolved.
when I first started out, i was like any ignorant kid, who just recolored because I was lazy as heck. but after a while, I actually didn't recolor and I actually tried to draw myself. then came along my other current artwork and my icons.
sure, I've made a lot of them
and sure, you probably think it's alright for yourself to just give credit because it's an icon, right? not like anyone cares, or like it's a really really important thing right? pff, it's just an icon, no biggie.
well, yes biggie.
I don't like it when my art strays away from it's purpose. there is always a purpose behind my art, keep in mind.
example, when I made kirah's, the purpose was that it was a simple icon/gift for her use and ONLY her use.
whenever I see people taking my art, and even when they credit me, it bugs me because I don't like it. if you really like my icons, or you'd like to have one, hecking holy just ask me-
if it's to the point that you'll STEAL and icon
then ask me already
and I'll make you one
this is really annoying

STOP. THE. ART. THEFT. -luna
the bad thing about scratch is that it's hard to get someone in trouble for art theft due to all those policies. -nova
yeah me and Luna went to @Paddle2See with rants. -Sprinq
mhm, along with @kittngore and me - sammy
Yeah but @paddle2see is all like "NOPE HERE ON SCRATCH YOU CAN STeAL ART,, AND IF YOU DONT LIKE THAT THEN YOU CANT BE HERE" -Luna
heck that’s rlly lame— I would have left scratch long ago but I’m not “old” enough for a dA -nova
Hello I would like to preach -Maple
Scratch is really starting to lower it's reputation... Scratch kinda, no IS getting worse and worse. -Star
Of course it is and its partly because we dont teach our children ethics! We THOUGHT we had that covered with church, but now, some are becoming REALLY unethical. Parents need to teach their children that stealing is NOT okay. But parents dont. Kids have to teach them selves. And younger kids think its okay to steal or recolor OR trace other peoples hard work. Its just WRONG. I fully support this studio and all the rants that come with them <3 -Maple
Ugh I know
I know!! Stealing art is the same as stealing other things. Expensive technology, food, etc. It’s the same. Art can be valuable as well. So really people, why the heck would people think it’s right to steal something?! It’s not. Scratch is getting worse and worse as younger kids join. Some of the oldest Scratchers who were role models to us all are leaving because of it. Scratch is shifting away from its educational and fun purpose, and now it’s just a cesspool of nothingness :( I hope Scratch can pull itsself out of the hole that’s progressivly deeper, but I don’t think any of us are holding our breath.
The ST is obsessed with 3.0, which most Scratchers actually //dislike// and aren't paying attention to the community. They are just pushing aside everything else, even taking out the tab with all the stuff new creators made. They don't set rules on remixing, and don't regulate anything. People get banned for unreasonable things like explaining depression, which is a serious issue, but people who do things, like swear just out of the filter, are safe. Theft is no different. They do it
