:iconemberroseart: has posted a Journal about a Wall-Paper site where there is a lot of stolen art.  Check it out here tolkienmaster.deviantart.com/j…

..................................................................
Tag:

Yep!  It finally happened to me...I have been tagged!  I didn't mean for it to happen, either.  All I did was comment on the journal of VisualDiffs to let him know that I was happy to see him, not noticing that there was a "Tag" style challenge involved.  Too late, now!  So, if you want in on this, here are the rules:

The first 15 people to comment on this journal will get 3 of their works featured.  If you do participate, and return the favor of a feature, I will also be adding your Icon to those listed above. (let me know if you do)
-EDIT- I am not going to require anybody to participate.  If you want in, tag yourself.  That way, I can feature the first 15 without them having to do anything but respond to this journal.  (I'm too lazy to try to play referee.)-END EDIT-

So, in keeping with the above, I will first feature

When She ComesWhen She comes
When a nightowl flies
Through the deep and dark night
And the streets are covered with the
Cold carpet of cool indifference
Be aware, for danger is near.
Not as threatening breathing in you neck
Or the sound of hoofs at the break of dawn
No, as silent emptyness she  will arrive,
When nobody and nothing is certain of ther lives,
She is what now is still called the unknown
She wakes fear in all of your hearts
Lets every woman silently tremble
And little children quiver
In their warm and comforting beds
Now that she is still unknown, wrapped in the deepest darkness
Nobody has to fear
Fear is only nessecary
When a nightowl flies
Through the deep and dark night
And the streets are covered with the
Cold carpet of cool indifference

We look externally for our understanding
Never seeing the truth inside
We ignore our own strengths
Seeing only the weaknesses we hide
We have so much potential
That we casually ignore
Our race falling in the sinkhole
Of religious fervor
Instead of seeing the possibilities
We turn upon ourselves
Instead of moving forward
We slide backwards down the scale
Perhaps we should find a way off
This tiny little rock
Before it's destroyed
By religion run amok.

Check my reply to *Ferelwing below, if you are really wanting a CSS. I didn't write mine, it is generic from those links. Check my journal here [link] for the specific link I used.

Yeah, same here...flattered that somebody liked it enough to show it off, but highly perturbed if they claimed it as their own.

Oh well thats good. Also, I don't believe I have ever put pictures of my butt online so I wouldve never had a feature. You couldve called it a "creature feature" though. :clap:

OMG...my mind just went to the old B (and I mean very B) movies. I can't tell you the made-up title of the movie that flashed through my tired, warped mind. Hint: It deals with a Cyclopian monster with eyes that are NOT blue. :rofl:

And, with that, "Good Night"! :sleep:

Yeah, even though the "contributors" are not getting money, the site operators are getting paid for displaying stolen works. Sucks on all levels.

Lol, imagine them trying to order Chinese after the curse takes over! :rofl:

I am happy for an excuse to do it now. I would have gotten there sometime in the future, but I can be impatient about some things. I so love your work. I hated picking just 3 works, but I can feature more some other day.

:icondianae: helped me with figuring out a CSS layout (her's is the top comment, with links) here [link] , and you can see which links I used here [link] . Just keep checking the *preview* feature at the bottom of your Journal Update page to see how it is progressing.

As for embedding icons type : then the deviant user Name ( without the *'s or other symbols) the type another : . For the thumbnails, each deviation has a thumbnail code listed to the right hand-bottom of the "details" section (the part that shows views, favorites, etc ) Simply *copy* and *paste* that. (It will look like this --- : thumb12345678 : --- but without the spaces between the colons and the rest)

I hope that helps you, at lest a little. Now, I have to go and prepare your feature. :D Thanks for chiming in. (This is starting to fill out nicely)

I'm so glad to see that you are adding more to your tag features :aww:

The sad thing about those wallpaper sites, is that people from myspace layout making sites, think it is free to take and use and post as a layout with only their name attached. The artist becomes anonymous and the layout makes becomes the only artist's name associated with it.

It is filling up quicker than the last one I did.

Yeah, even with no money changing hands, it is just WRONG to not give the proper credits to the artist(s) whose work is being displayed. And, even though the ones uploading the wall-papers are not getting any money, the site is collecting donations, which means they are making money by offering stolen art. It is just wrong on every level.

Oh, but that would take away from the little twerps' attempts to bolster their low self-esteem and their popularity with the other twerps.

Yeah, I find thieves and murderers to be on the same evolutionary level with child-molesters and abusers. Extinction is too good for them.
