IMPORTANT!!! The Decision.  
 After much thoughts and of course with the help of your opinions as well, I've decided to watermark all my arts. I will not take drastic actions for now as to suddenly splurge all the members in the community nor will I lock it. I guess everyone deserves a second chance and I will give those people the benefit of doubt.

I hate to uglify my drawings when I'm showing you guys but it seems that's the only way. At the beginning I was tempted to just watermark the whole image, like one of a pic I saw on tumblr. It's a clever idea actually because if you only watermark certain parts, the people still can crop it or clean it up. But I was thinking of those who really wants to enjoy looking at my arts without the stupid stuffs. In the end I've decided to just watermark some part of the art, making sure that it's still viewable yet will be hell for people to clean it. I have to insist on using lengthy words instead of a shorter ones 'cause more words = more time to clean up. >:) I don't care if I'm being mean because I think I've been nice enough to give everyone a chance. Worse come to worse, I will watermark the whole art itself just so I can have a peace of mind when I post it online.

And I know my drawings people so I know if it had been cleaned or not~

Hopefully with the watermarks they will think twice before uploading anymore images from this community. I will just leave the previous arts I've posted before untarnished. I figured it won't be of use reposting the images with the watermarks since many already have the original drawings stashed in their computer. All the usernames I'm using for my other sites will be written at the bottom of this post, at the sidebar as well as in the art itself so no one can make the excuse that they didn't know about the rules.

One of the main reason I did not want to lock my community is because it will be harder for me to promote my arts on other communities since some of them do not allow locked post to be shared. The other thing is, it's a hassle for me to keep approving their requests 'cause they might have to wait a long time for the approval if I am busy.

If the people still breaks the rules then I have no choice but to clean up the community so I will only share my stuffs with the people I trust. Like they said, the smaller the group the easier to track down the culprit. If that still persists, then I will just have to shut down the community and locked it for my private viewing only. Which would sucks since I love sharing my arts with people and receiving their opinions on it. Helps me get the ideas and also grow from it, you know.

If I EVER have to splurge the members,


It will be a huge task but I won't mind if that means it will protect my copyright. The easiest way for me to start deleting is by seeing how much you comment. Usually these people who break the rules are lurkers and won't bother commenting ( much less read the rules ) therefore I will start off with those bunch. The reason why I'm insisting that you at least comment here and there is so I will know that you are not a lurker, and also I will know about you more. This means I can gauge what kind of person you roughly are and whether can I trust you.

And when the time comes for me to clean the community, I will keep the people I know and save you guys from the trouble of having to join the community again. There are already some of the usernames I have in mind. They are the people who have been commenting on my posts many times and I really am grateful for that. After I've cleaned and locked the community with much lesser members, I might or I might not start accepting new members straightaway. When I do reopen my community, I will make it harder for them. ( e.g: Their LJ needs to have a certain number of comments posted, how active they are etc. )

Here, I hope to seek cooperations with all of you. If you ever see my arts being posted by someone else aside from the places I've stated below, be a dear and ask them to take it down? Or you can PM me the link and I will talk to them myself. :) I will be eternally grateful for your help.

I'm sorry that I have to trouble you people with these but I was already worried about those who would make profits out of my hard work when I created this community, and now this have to happen. I thank you for your support and encouragement seriously. I really appreciate it and wish for you to continue enjoying my arts. It makes me happy when people's lives are brightened up by my simple drawings~ :DDD

Thank you once again guys!!!

On a brighter note, there will be some arts coming u soon!!! XDDD

These are the three places which I will share some of my Arashi arts; please remember the abbreviations for it since I will use it in my watermark. ^^

Deviantart: msloveless@DA
Tumblr: arashickhuda@tumblr
Facebook: Nurulhuda Samad Amnos

I do post my arts on Facebook but I've already locked it so only my friends will be able to view it. My FB are mainly use for my own personal life though :)

Aah. I guess this kind of thing always pops up in a community every now and then. I hope the people will stop reposting/reuploading your art without your permission. :| I'd hate to see you stop sharing all the good stuff since I really like your style of drawing.

In any case, your works always make me smile, so your sharing of them is thoroughly appreciated. Thanks so much! :D ♥

Sorry you had to resort to that.. I'm sure its not an easy decision either way. Shame at any rate when an artist has to go to extremes you know? :( And I will try to comment more lol I swear I'm not a bad lurker ^__^

ginger001ginger001 on July 20th, 2011 08:17 am (UTC)
I think you made the right decision. Let's hope *crosses fingers* that it works!!!

It's a pity you had to occupy your mind with all this stuff because people can't follow the rules, instead of imagining and creating lovely art... *sigh*

*waiting impatiently for the upcoming posts* ^^
Wilstreewilstree on July 20th, 2011 08:30 am (UTC)
I'll comment.. a lot from now on. They're too good to miss! And I'm sure we'll all be looking out for any stolen art, so hopefully that'll make things a lot easier..
I'll take this opportunity to say thanks for uploading stuff so frequently, looking forward to the coming works. A lot.

I, like most others, have no problem with your decision! I sincerely hope something like this doesn't happen again :/ the world is just... filled with stupid people.

I will inform you if I see your art elsewhere, and I'll do my best to better my commenting-skills!

Hi, it's terrible to hear that people have been uploading your art elsewhere. Unfortunately, I am one of those people who have a tendency to lurk (and silently admire your drawings from afar), so am just posting a comment here. Keep on drawing! :)
SamB_Csikania on July 20th, 2011 10:32 am (UTC)
I have no problem with your decision, I accept it 'cause you have to protect your art...
If I see some of your draws anywhere I will infrom you :)
hope you will post more draws :)
