Well, I think I say enough about this crap already with my replies to people and in the original posts themselves but I want to get the final word out so people can read and interpret how they will. Thank this… for the resurface and sorry for people who don't wish to read about this sort of thing anymore. If you don't please pass it by.

As much as I don't want to address this, I want to to let people know why I do these things. This is kind of like a "snitches-get-stitches" kind of post, isn't it? I don't really have much to say since I already said a load of it when I made these posts but to people who think I want to sick my watchers etc on people it's not true. And remember as ruthless as the internet to these kind of things, they are also VERY forgiving. The Kidchan scenerio for example resolved itself nicely when Kidchan made a formal apology and properly addressed the situation. I haven't heard bulk about it since. And if you look at healingwind's status then you can see that MANY still look up to her and MANY would support her if she decided to start fresh. She hasn't made a decision on that btw, instead she ceased posting on her art accounts.

I don't know what I should say; you can disagree with what I do but I think it's important because I don't want people to get away with being unethical. I'm not a saint whatsoever and I do make mistakes but I do think it's unfair if a commissioner is able to take money and not make contact AT ALL and I think it's unfair if someone is able to do traces for commissions (which many had already stated is illegal.)

People think I'm wrong for calling out artists but then should I just watch? Because I don't know about you but most people keep cheating or doing bad things if there are no consequences because for some there's not much motivation to do good otherwise. I also don't like the fact people are basically lying outright to specific communities. And many people who scold me also say that they DISAGREE with the actions of the offenders. If so then why do you have such a problem? Do you basically want to just let them keep going on but just shake your head quietly? I'd rather be active in solving the problem and hope that they change their ways FOR THE BETTER because again the community is just as forgiving as it is ruthless if you do damage control.

And if you still can't RESPECT or understand my decision (I don't ask you to agree just respect) for why I do these things then I advise you to unwatch me and ignore my internet existence. Because to be honest if you're not part of the solution you're part of the problem. I'm not on a damn crusade but I'm sick of people letting things go on for years and months and more years and months JUST BECAUSE no one wants to say boo about it and people who do say boo get burned.

AND because I know this is going to be brought up to the people who say "Well, just handle this all privately!" I would absolutely LOVE to do that but when I don't I either have first hand experience that it doesn't work (Kidchan) or secondhand accounts that it doesn't work (healingwind.) I don't get a sick thrill from this and I have my good reasons for not handling these things privately as much as I want to.

If you want to know about my first hand account then how about noting a commissioner ONCE A YEAR to ask about the status and not getting ANYTHING back? And how about my secondhand account where I hear and see a tracer get confronted by the original artist THEN CONFRONTS THE ORIGINAL ARTIST(S) TO TAKE DOWN THE ACCOUNTS OF HER EVER TRACING. I'm really sick of people thinking I do this for no reason.

Honestly it doesn't make sense for me that people allow this to go on and frown on those who just wants to inform people yet they also frown upon those who do the crimes in the first place AND THEY REMAIN QUIET ABOUT IT STILL. I'm not out on some sick witch hunt but that's alright if you think I am because I am not going to change your mind if you've read all of this and still believe so.

I'm done with this response for now, I apologize sorry for the length.

I actually appreciate your journals on these issues. The information is always well organized, and when you give your personal opinion it never sounds hateful.

AC is a piece of crap. Most of the people on AC are pieces of crap. Some dick who's butthurt about the whole Sei fiasco just feels a need to take it out on somebody, and I'm sorry that somebody was you. I'm pretty sure all of the sensible people know the drama towards you is bullshit though.

I'm pretty sure it's the anon calling YOU out that has a little bit too much time on their hands and quite the twisted personality. If someone is doing something wrong or something against your morale I find it obvious to let them know. I mean if you don't give them a heads up, they're just going to continue with their wrongdoings. What I want to say is, good for you for speaking up. I really do respect your decision and strong opinions. It's refreshing to see compared to the hoard of immature internet users that apparently have nothing better to do than artist-confessions. :/

Pfffft I hate Artist-'confessions most of time. XD lol
But what you did was the right thing Niaro, if you haven't confronted her she would have continued of what she's
doing. All I'm wondering why some of these people think it's drama?? XD
Silly people. =_=b

:O! kidchan traces? did not know
niaro Featured By Owner Jan 18, 2013
No, she does not. It was a commission problem that was resolved in December. Don't worry, Kidchan does not trace.

maybe I misunderstood your post... ( not accusing anything)

I support you. I think free information flow is very important, and when injustice happens - people need to know. If I know someone is doing bad and don't talk about it I feel like I'm doing a crime too by keeping injustice under the rug. >n<

Lol well I'm sure you know how I feel, but I'll say it again cuz I like being supportive and all

There is nothing wrong with voicing your option, however there is a good way and a bad way. YOU do it in a good way, you take your time, do your research , and try to give all the information in a clear and simple matter. THAT'S SMART. I like being able to read something feel informed and be left to have my own thoughts.


What I find is ppl who run around, make quick journals/posts based off something that just happened. They don't have proof or back up to thier claims and think shouting will get them what.


Ughh that's what I hate about this day and age. Lets just be quick to get mad and accuse ppl instead of listening, understanding, then making an opion of your own.

I think that pretty much explains my stance (there is only so much my phone types) Glad you have lots of support! Don't dwell on ppl quick to judge you, how they can do that we will never understand, so lets just not waste out time. hope ur day goes better today!!!

Ugh people like that are annoying tracing is OK if your doing it for practice on shapes not art if you have problems with a circle fine trace it dont blody trace art of a head cause its practice.. I understand if your inspired by an artist but dont trace if you like their art style fine ask if you can ask for pointers or shapes to use.. and make it part of your style.. I feel you I got the same things when I was more part of drawing community, I feel as if its your art then you have a right to say NO I dont want that and people have to respect you for it. It's your art you can tell others what they can and cant do to it/with it. End of story.. I hope this blows out for you I feel for you and hope you have a better time in the future.
