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 :)

When will people respect other people work? When the people will stop steeling fanart & fansub and just enjoy the work?

If I saw you art anywhere, i will let you know.

めっちゃ entertainment!!toinkydoink on July 20th, 2011 06:47 pm (UTC)
Since everyone's already said what I'd wanted to say, I'll just go ahead and wish you luck with your decision! This fandom can get tough when it comes to any sort of content, fanmade or not, so I really hope it works out for you. :)

Looking forward to what you have in store for us, and I'll do my best to leave more comments! ♥
Thaiza: Aibaperfeitothatamacedo on July 20th, 2011 08:27 pm (UTC)
I think this was the best decision. I'm so sorry for not commenting, but RL is really getting hard on me...

It's such a shame what happened, but I really support your decision!
Aibakabraindead91 on July 20th, 2011 09:10 pm (UTC)
I probably haven't commented that much since I tend to look through things and SPAZ and then randomly forget to comment. I fail like that. I will try to comment more so, so as not to put you in a tough spot if it ever comes to a point in time where you have to purge your community of people. I love your art and I respect your decision to watermark it, although it makes me sad that you had to do it in the first place. Best of luck in the future. I will keep my eye open to see if anyone posts your work anywhere. ^ ^
kt_pridekt_pride on July 20th, 2011 09:25 pm (UTC)
It's your decision and If I can help, let me know *-*
I don't know how many times I commented, but I tried hahaha I love your drawings <3
hika86hika86 on July 20th, 2011 09:46 pm (UTC)
I'm so angry T_T
What's the meaning of this?
I wanted to use your work for a mug too, but I'm clear enought to ask before doing it and to restain from doing it if you say "no". Why can't people respect others works?
(you're on DA too? O.o never seen your work on DA)
jellybean6972: Arashijellybean6972 on July 20th, 2011 10:24 pm (UTC)
Yup, it doesn't matter if you're being mean. You need to do what you need to do :)
kanojokhjkanojokhj on July 20th, 2011 10:30 pm (UTC)
I hope people stop doing this T_T It is sad to know that they do not respect the work of others

Thanks for always sharing your work, it is really amazing !!! :D

I'll be commenting as usual :D so ganbatte !
DudeOhnoyaoilicious_53 on July 20th, 2011 10:50 pm (UTC)
I agree with you decision!

blind_maiden: matsumiyablind_maiden on July 20th, 2011 10:55 pm (UTC)
This is, for now, the best decision... I hope people be decent to reconize your art or take it of their pages... If I see your art n places that doen't belong to you I'll inform you.

Well, I hope you keep doing your art, so I can see the cute Arashi you draw. I will try to coment more!!

\o gambatê

Thank you so much ^__^
vzvzb2 on July 21st, 2011 02:47 am (UTC)
I'm sorry you have to go through this.
I love your work and am sad some people just spoil a good thing for the rest of us.
mskbbyrainbowpursuits on July 21st, 2011 08:58 am (UTC)
I may not have been commenting very often because RL leaves me very little time to check on LJ but I really appreciate your work when I see it on my f-list! It sure brings a smile on my face! Thank you for giving the members a second chance. I will work on commenting on your arts! Thank you for sharing them. :-)
ninonokoibitoninonokoibito on July 21st, 2011 12:58 pm (UTC)
I only download ppl's fanart for personal viewing, I think that others must ask for your permission to repost elsewhere.Even if you lock the community and set up barriers for followers, I still try my best to follow you because I love your art. Thank you for such beautiful pictures
sjgoldentrashbin on July 21st, 2011 03:00 pm (UTC)
long post, i read it all!
will start to comment more often (:
thanks for your hard work!
zaephon: Book Loverzaephon on July 21st, 2011 04:21 pm (UTC)
I am glad that you have come to a decision and I'm happy that what you chose to do still allows people to enjoy your art. Hopefully when you start watermarking your art people will be discouraged to post them as their own. It'd be so sad to lock the community, but let us hope that the problem is solved!

And I can't wait for you to post new arts!
Rizz is Myne:Jan is Niceianne_xxyl on July 21st, 2011 05:12 pm (UTC)
Oh, i see. That's why you're recent fanart has a watermark.
I do think that your decision is fit and wise. XD
And don't be sorry, you need to protect your right :)

Uhm, sorry if my comment doesn't make a lot of sense, I'm so sleepy. Anyway, goodnight! and i hope that all will be well :)
muack!: saruk ♥ jun_iconsaru_k on July 21st, 2011 10:21 pm (UTC)
Uwaaa... i don't understand why people do that... it's not that difficult give credits or relink to the original source, ne?...
I have no problem with your decision but I think i'm one of the persons that don't comment often...actually maybe I've just commented a couple of times, but honestly I admire your fanart, it's kind of unique and diferent... i like it.

I'll try to comment over here more often, I hope that with the watermarks people will stop stealing you art.
Franlalia: Clara Bow Isweetdreaming13 on July 22nd, 2011 05:24 am (UTC)
Glad to see that you made a decision for now, and I hope that it will resolve the problem. C:
az_honey: NeenxYurikoaz_honey on July 22nd, 2011 12:26 pm (UTC)
I guess I can be classified as one of those ppl that doesn't comment much.Sorry,dear~ XDD
But I seriously love your works though.Keep drawing to your hearts' content.
Looking forward to see them and will definitely inform u if I see someone repost them without permission.
pnutbutterkelly: リーダー fashionistapnutbutterkelly on July 22nd, 2011 02:45 pm (UTC)
You have every right to watermark your own work. I'll certainly comment as much as I can. Looking forward to whatever you have in store for us~! :)
Sushiforever_wlove on July 22nd, 2011 05:01 pm (UTC)

kazuohmiyakazuohmiya on July 22nd, 2011 07:36 pm (UTC)

ibitsu on July 23rd, 2011 12:29 am (UTC)
it is a pity that you have to use these measures but I somewhat understand - oh the eternal copyright vs. internet issue!Due to my now hectic life I am a lurker, I have to admit. The reason why I use LJ nowadays is to keep up with the communities and friends, In your case, your artwork has only graced my desktop and iphone backgrounds with its presence I can assure you :D
I'll keep lurking!

(your artwork is really something (!), its sad that you felt the need to watermark it =| )
