|This is a clarification on the Abuse Assistance section rules.
If you see an FAC user trying to submit artwork which is not their own (aka "stealing art"), and you know precisely who the original artist they are stealing from is, then do not post here.
Remember, the purpose of this forum section is for investigating suspected, unproven art theft only. This is the place to say "I think this guy is stealing, but I don't know from whom" and to request help in figuring out who the real original artist is.
If you already know who the original artist is, great! But this is not the place to point a finger at the thief and tell us to ban their stinking hide, we delete topics for stuff like that.
Instead, do this:
- E-mail your report to firstname.lastname@example.org
- OR, Send a PM to an FAC site admin (such as myself, "Stratadrake").
And remember, before we can take any action on your abuse report, you must give us the following information:
- The name of the FAC user who is stealing art, or a URL to one of their submissions, AND:
- A URL to the original artwork, by the original artist on the original website. We need to know exactly where we can find the original artist, otherwise we won't be able to do anything, and you'll only end up wasting your time.
Thank you for your time, and happy hunting!
