I’m so sorry you had to deal with this, Marcelle. Being reprimanded for trying to promote an artist’s work is unfair and cruel. I would be honored to have any of my work used in these ways and I want to thank you for all of your hard work as host of this group.

I am sorry this happened because it is so silly. For the moment I am sidestepping the issue in my groups by using only my own work in banners. Glad that you followed up on this and thankful for the advice and awareness, Tom

Feel free to check out anything I have in my portfolio. I consider it an honor when you share it here in the group. Thanks for all you do.

Having had my comments deleted from a group for disagreeing with the boss/moderator I can understand your frustration. In previous years the groups I’ve been in have either stated that policy first or personally contacted me for my permission. I thought this reasonable. Now that you have stated this as a policy of this group of course it is accepted.
Good luck

Hi Marcelle,
I juste read this thread. I am so sorry to read this and that you have to go through that!
You are a wonderful host and a dedicated one. You can use my photos as avatar because it is an honour. Not a copyright infringement. You are not using it anywhere else then RedBubble.
I totally agree with your new rules and if people don’t want their work being used as avatar, well they just have to not belong to any groups.

Best regards Marcelle.

Thank you all for understanding the new rules. It’s really sad that it has gotten to that. I understand infringement, but challenges, etc are why we are here.

All promotions are welcome, in my book. Having an image chosen to represent a challenge is a tremendous compliment.
Sorry you had to deal with one individual who does not know that. Thanks for your hard work!
