Notices On Stock Sources

Since a couple of them have accumulated now, it was decided best to merge them all into the sticky topic. So any notices, and future notices regarding 'stock' sources that are not to be used can be found posted here.

NOTICE:: Pixelbay & Pexel 'Stock'

Postby Selvester » Tue Sep 20, 2016 12:30 am

Notice To All Artists

The use of images from the 'free stock' sites Pixabay and Pexel will no longer be permitted.

There have been several of these images popping up lately and it left us mods a little wary for some time and questioning the sites integrity as they both appear to be of a similar nature to Shutterstock and both are in fact partnered with Shutterstock. (Which if you didn't know already, is NOT a good stock site and it's use is not permitted in the making of avatars here.) The site allows users to create an account and upload images is reason one for out concern as a member of the site would be able to upload whatever image they wish.

After many hours of looking up images on there it has been found that a vast majority of the images found on Pixabay and Pexel are not actually stock images at all and have been taken from an alternative source then just labeled as such. Following a brief discussion among the moderation team, we have decide to disallow the use of both Pixabay and Pexel in the creation of avatars.

Thank you for the understanding and Happy Hunting.

Freaks-bases

It has come to the attention of the moderation team that the user Freaks-bases over on DA has traced bases from the anime Wolf's Rain, and potentially other animes. As such, bases from them will no longer be allowed on the WP sites. It will be breaking the rules about stolen artwork otherwise.

Thank you for the understanding and Happy Hunting.
