Re: TOS sets project

That's funny, I seem to remember crediting artists for their work being common net etiquette, but apparently its a dumb imaginary rule the TrekBBS Hivemind came up with just to frustrate one guy.

Seems legit.

Re: TOS sets project

I've admitted that I used this person's photos WITHOUT his knowledge or permission, but the FACT that there was no way that I could have known WHO to contact to get permission seems to escape you all. And I really love the way that you all say "This is not an attack" and then just slam me to the wall, on many various venues, and you are all saying the same thing.
I did not take the "poor little ol' me" position ever, not ONCE, and if you are assuming that, then that is your position error, not mine!

So, I'm just supposed to be some fodder on this board for everyone to flame, slam and harass?

Nice, people, real nice.

Re: TOS sets project

Maybe I'm missing something, cause I'm not seeing anything more than people saying variations of credit the original artist.

Edit, to add: As for finding the artist: Open a thread in the Fan Art forum. Link to your source material, ask if anyone knows who created it and how you can get in touch with them to ask if you can use their material.

PMing the poster who put the art up was too difficult?

Cool, I'm gonna use this reasoning to get a new car tomorrow. Saw a nice one parked down the street.

Re: TOS sets project

Well, this went to hell in a handcart.

treknician1701, for future posts, please refer to the FAQ regarding the rules. I don't see where you were attacked, flamed or harassed in this thread - it's just been a matter of reminding you of both the rules and of common courtesy when using someone else's creativity - obviously, we all do, in a way, as long as we're creating fan art for Star Trek. And it's really not much to ask of someone, but it does get frustrating when the response often includes, "Well, I'm not the only one who does it," which may be true, but it's still not an excuse. As for taking photos in museums, many of them do actually insist you don't take photos of the works on display (and anyone who takes a photo of the Mona Lisa, the most reproduced image in the world, is just foolish).

Feel free to post anything you like, as long as it follows the rules and, if it contains someone else's work, that proper credit is given. If you can't find the owner, usually that's a good guide to not posting the work at all.
