Brought to my attention by musicalpanties @ inspireoncemore, whom I thank sincerely!

Someone has been stealing icons made by various graphics makers and posting them to a Hungarian social media website: iconsforyou @ hotdog.hu. These people (vanda1111 and vegecske, as far as I can tell) are not crediting the original makers, they are hotlinking (which eats up bandwidth quickly), and this is just plain disrespectful. I see so many graphics from makers who post on LiveJournal, and it's horrible to see how much these people have stolen. Graphics-makers, be careful! These people just don't care!

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Comments are screened in this post for privacy, unless you clearly state that you are okay with your comments to be viewed by others, or if I feel you have a legitimate question that others possibly would like answered as well. Please keep in mind that this post is specifically kept unlocked, so it is visible to the public.


1. Why can't I see your entries anymore?
This community is now Members Only. Membership is moderated. Entries will be locked within 3 days. Please join to view further posts!

2. Why has wilderness now become Members Only?
Many people have been using my graphics without credit. Now, I am aware that this is (unfortunately) common and can happen anyway with users who are members of the community, but I'd like to think that if you have now made the effort to join then you would have the decency to credit. - I have also noticed that when wilderness was Open Membership, my Bandwidth was eaten up quickly due to hotlinking, and since making the community Members Only the % has decreased dramatically.

3. Why did you reject my membership request to wilderness?
The only time I reject a membership request is if your journal is empty and obviously never used. This also goes for Facebook, Google+, and any other open ID accounts. Many other graphic communities enforce this same rule as well.

4. May I use your graphics on other websites?
I kindly request that you stick to either LiveJournal, Dreamwidth, or other similar blogging websites* as well as crediting myself (wolf) or the community (wilderness @ LiveJournal). Recently I've caught users on message-boards using my icons & posting my icons (as well as graphics made by other makers from LiveJournal) all taken without permission or credit, and claiming as their own. I simply would like to know where what I make is being used and by whom. As mentioned in the previous question, Bandwidth/hotlinking is also an issue with this. Thank you for understanding! (*Exceptions to the rule can be made, but please just ask first, and remember to credit!)

5. Do you take requests?
Yes I do! If you have any specific subject matters you would like to see featured in my graphics, you can leave a comment here. I do however reserve the right to refuse certain subject matters that may be controversial and/or offensive to others. For personal requests, please check out wilderness_req, where you can see if requests are currently open or closed under the Request Status section.

6. I like the image you used in Icon #X in Post #X. Do you have the original?
Every image I use for my graphics I either have saved in my we♥it account or on wilderness's Tumblr account. (If you're interested in my main Tumblr account, it is here!) I usually have the images saved in the order that I used them, so if it was an older post chances are you would have to search through a few pages to find it. Or, if you're really not finding the image, just ask!

7. Help! You have broken links / disappearing icons!
If you see any broken links or graphics that are no longer showing up, please let me know here and I will fix them ASAP!



Any other general questions or comments can be added here and I will reply as promptly as possible. :)
