What Have They Done Now?

OMG RB seem intent on ruining this site…. This is so un-user friendly…. I have no idea, where to see new works, new posts or anything……. The new profile page looks horrible. Why oh why do they change things when they aren’t broken?

Canon 500d for sale!

Hope you all had a fabulous Christmas. I am thinking of selling my Canon EOS 500d. Comes with kit lens EFS 18-55mm plus Hoya 58mm PL-CIR and HOYA Skylight (1B) Filters. It’s a superb camera but I haven’t used it much in past year as I now have the 5d Mk2…. I kept it as a spare, but I need more funds to buy a lens my 5d so deserves! And I need new lights as one of mine is playing up, which when photographing children I cannot afford to happen! Any sensible offers considered, please in box me! I still have the box etc for it!

REDBUBBLE SECURITY - PLEASE READ

In light of the multiple recent thefts of artwork from Redbubble which were found on PIXDAUS, and to be honest I am sure they are on many other websites out there, Harry Purves and I have requested that RB upgrade the watermark. At present it is optional and just shows your name and it is hard to find the owner. We believe this should be changed to incorporate the copyright sign and the RB web address so that any image can be identified. Therefore the watermark would read ©www.redbubble.com/people/username Also the watermark should be applied automatically and it be optional to remove it. Although people think it ruins an image with a watermark it is there to protect you.

Anyway the purpose of this mail is to ask you to VOTE on the matter. If you support a change in the watermark p…

UPDATE ON PIXDAUS ~ STOLEN PHOTOS

There has been some action taken behind the scenes regarding the stolen art from RB onto the Pixdaus site.
Initially it was just Zafar1 who we knew was stealing, but on going through the site there are many more who have other peoples work up as their own. Afew more are Jchip8, GOTINHA, LILLY & EBITARY, there are many more, but I didn’t record them.
We don’t have the support of RB, they advise us to act on our own behalf, I have complained enmass to PIXDAUS and others have too. Some of the artwork has been taken down from the site. So if you are aware of any stolen work whether it is yours or some one you know (please inform them) then start sending the emails, the more they get the more they will have to act.

To this person:
chris@environmentalgraffiti.com who runs Pixdaus, send…

FLICKR

Are all members on Flickr arrogant idiots? i joined to inform them of all the stolen Flickr artwork on Pixdaus. I posted an entry on the Help forum only to be left two comments…..

member 1
Crabby Moore You have accidentally posted on the Flickr help forum. Or is there some aspect of the site you need help with?

member 2
They also seem to have accidentally created an account to accidentally post here

member 2 in response to the below which he quoted
If there is a better way to alert Flickr members perhaps you would like to create a message where Flickr members can see this information

If you think we are staff here, we are not, just regular users. If you’d like to contact staff, do so here:

www.flickr.com/help/

I am shocked at the unhelpful and quite frankly horrible comments!

STOLEN WORK ON PIXDAUS - SUPPORT NEEDED - WAS YOUR WORK STOLEN?

Pixdaus seems to be a cowboy website with no control over what is posted there. There are comments dating back to 2008 re stolen artwork and Ellen Van Deelen tried to get her stolen images removed months ago but nothing has happened.

As you maybe aware many stolen RB have been found on there.

Under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act you can contact the ISP and inform them of the copyright infringement and they will remove the infringement from the world wide web.

Now this can either be done collectively, and even though my images have not been stolen that I am aware of (they aren’t good enough!) i will willing act as an agent for all, or individuals can contact the ISP direct.

Either way this is what you must do if you wish to act for yourself.

Why has our public profile page changed?

Does anyone know why RB has changed your public profile page? I had always sorted my art into my best and most popular pieces of work first and then followed them by other favs and some of my newer work, then subject matter throughout my pages. The images were always sorted to have some sort of colour scheme too so that it was asthetically pleasing to the eye. Now it looks a damned mess with the latest images loaded first. Is there anyway of changing this back? Yet again this appears to me to be change for change sake. I DO NOT LIKE THIS AT ALL.
