r1ches asked: Most people post source on pictures but it gets taken off by some people that reblogs it. You're not helping anybody by changing the source to your blog. You're just making it harder for people like me to go to the original poster and find the source that they put.
refucked asked: "Ask me anything and quit hiding behind anond" even though the sidebar picture is the anonymous icon and you mention that youre not giving out your personal url... Makes alot of sense.
nohomerange asked: Just a question from a Tumblr newbie. Why do you advise creating a Flickr or 100px (?) account instead of sourcing to your own site? I just deleted my Flickr account as I just created my own portfolio site, and I'd rather not deal with Flickr again.
treasure asked: can you not put your url as the source thanks
Why Crediting is Important
whatiscredit: What’s supposed to happen What’s happening when you don’t credit What you’re making them do Every artist grow by displaying their work and getting critique. But when their work is spread around without any credit to the artist, AND EVEN MAKES THE OWN ARTIST DELETE IT FROM HIS/HER SITE it lost the purpose and meaning.
cinematic-orchestra asked: It really annoys me when people take my photography or Gifs and upload them as their own. What bothers me more is when I find them and ask them to take them down and they basically tell me to "eff off". I get it, it's the internet and you can't keep everything your own.. Even I am guilty of finding an image on Google and not sourcing it but that is because I don't know...
ilhanes asked: Seguindo, amei aqui *-*
queerfuck asked: Sorry if that last message came off as rude or patronizing, but I don't see how magnifying the problem is helping anyone. If you truly cared about crediting original artists and photographers you would take the time to find the source and replace URLs with the source, rather than ANOTHER tumblr. That's just perpetrating more 'stealing' if you ask me.
0rient-express asked: Ok, yeah I understand that, but if I source it to flickr people will still change it >.< funny you mention the landscape tag because I'm top contributor there :) anyway have a nice day! :)
0rient-express asked: Excuse me but why one of my pictures redirected me here? and even the source was changed... I own it so why did you change it?
h-ailstorm asked: do y'all ever change any of m0rtality's stuff? i see him more than gofuckingnuts on my dash and it drives me INSANE.
nineteenfootcable asked: I feel bad that I didn't used to source my things because I didn't notice the little box for sources...I thought you guys were pedantic nutcases but now I know better. <3 Respect. -gives you a cookie and flees-
breathtakingly-yours asked: usually when i reblog gofuckingnuts, I change the source to gofuckingsource, and I just put in the tumblr name to see who I was sourcing hahah, i never knew you guys actually existed xD
hearts0ng asked: STOP CHANGING THE SOURCE ON MY UPLOADS YOU FLIPPING IDIOT. I DONT GET WHAT JOY YOU GET OUT OF IT!!
k-ssed asked: I didn't get the first two :)
so-mexy-deactivated20130429 asked: ilu, if you're a girl, marry me, if yous a dude, brofist. Though your blog doesn't help the cancer of non-sourcing bloggers, it still sends a message! mofobian and gofuckingnuts is probably the biggest i've seen by far.
fapstreetboys asked: You know what hurts though? Quote "How would you feel if you took a photo and someone else posted it on their blog without giving you any credit? People would think that they took that photo instead of you." You took away something from me, and it hurts. Everyone thinks that it's your photo now. No one knows it was me. No one changed the source before and I never had problems with...
biohazxrd asked: I been seeing this url for quite sometime and the entire time i thought it was just people who hated gofuckingnuts changing it to gofuckingsource since that guy like hardly ever sources his shit. But after typing in the url and seeing this blog come up haha. Has throughly entertained and made my day. Thank you
indigachristy-deactivated201301 asked: THANK YOU FOR THIS BLOG. I eventually quit posting my photographs on Flickr because it had become a place for people to steal for their own blogs, and I knew when someone "favorited" my work, I would trace it back to their adjoining tumblrs later. I began only posting my pictures on my own tumblr and had to leave Flickr because of uncredited work.
dikester asked: I love you all. Keep doing what you do, you all fucking rock.
himynameisgian asked: Annoying as hell that I have to keep resourcing half the posts I find, only to have to end up linkin back here so people can finally get the idea. -_-'
minorsourceofmayhem asked: This blog kind of makes me want to go back in my blog and change every 'gofuckingnuts' source to this one. I don't follow him but he's probably the source for 1/3 the content on tumblr. what an asshole.
a-foundation asked: holograph, nepula, simpleflaw, and vqk don't source.
wonderous-world asked: I always change the source to you guys lol. It annoys me so bad when people can upload a photo without properly crediting the owner and replace it with their own URL in hopes of gaining a few followers. How would they like it if that was their work >.> -sigh- rant over. I love you ok.
myuniverseisyourstoo asked: Is it weird that I look at your blog to laugh at your arguments and at the gifs? You have funny gifs
whitefappel asked: You need to stop replacing photo credit with your URL. I credit every photo I upload, stop replacing it with your URL. Starting to really get annoying.
ellixt asked: you said how easy it was to find out the source of a photo using google images. why don't you do that instead of sourcing it to your blog? you're not helping at all. even if you source it to here, it's still incorrectly sourced.
a-foundation asked: In the caption area of a picture I upload, I put (by >insert source here<). I don't link the source though. Does it still count as sourcing?
b3autyl0ver asked: I need to talk to you. Most of the pictures on my blogs are my edits and the originals are wallpapers. how the fuck do I know the source? I put source to the ones I know, which I took from a photography site. So stop put your url in my pics. I took time to edit it, so I hope you respect my work as well. To remind you again, I did gave sources to the pics I know who the author is. You do it with...
l3gendxry asked: lol you kids.
simpleflaw asked: I've been setting this blog as the click through on everything I reblog, it's great haha.
say-goodby asked: check my blog? :3
whyteblankpages asked: How do I make it so someone can't delete the text I write on photo posts? I was just reblogged but all my text is gone. And there is no click through source back to my blog or anything >:(
kindofrighteous asked: i love this love love love
bonerchamp69 asked: What if a picture links back to a blog, and I can't tell if that blog posted it or not? Is that gofuckingsource-able?
newagebass asked: Yeah i did ahah, but then he photoshopped the watermark out :/
newagebass asked: i've been told that you hate gofuckingnuts, so i thought i would leave this here [newagebass(.)tumblr(.)com/post/33285801174/so-gofuckingdouchebag-nice-work-on-stealing-my] because the son of a bitch stole one of my gifs and got 40,000 notes off it Just trying to show the rest of tumblr how much of a cunt he is.
apostrophe-apocalypse asked: hey. do you think when duchamp signed a toilet & called it 'fountain' it became his own work? how about drawing a mustache on the mona lisa? [obvi, questions of digital sharing, are rather different, but I'm interested in your opinion]
watchkeyphone asked: I've read the FAQ. It explains how to source a photo correctly, not what the purpose of this blog is.
watchkeyphone asked: Well, apparently it's not common sense since I still don't understand it. Would it kill you to actually explain?
watchkeyphone asked: I genuinely don't understand what this blog actually does? I saw someone had reblogged a photo with this as the source. What does that mean?
a-80 asked: Haha I love this! Sooo funny <3
justsexypics asked: I just thought I would let you know that I change stolen sources to this one frequently, I'm just sorry it's porn!
we-could-be-falling-stars asked: Hey :) My best friend Monique is trying to win a peoples choice scholarship. Her goal is to make it to the Rio Olympics and represent NZ in BMX, if you could reblog my last post on my blog and vote for her to win the AMP scholarship it could make her dream become a reality and not let the money side of the sport hold her back!
bcreations asked: YOU'RE AWESOME!
loathedteenager asked: What's the point of this blog?????????????????????????
premi3r asked: Can you reblog my entire page? Thanks.
where-worlds-wrap-around asked: I try explaining why people should source and the responses have been: "It's the internet, people are going to steal pictures." and "It's not like you are a professional, or going to win some kind of an award for your photo." Idiots. As an amateur photographer (who has had a decent amount of arguments on this subject via Tubmlr), I thank you :)
Anonymous asked: Stupid answer.
Anonymous asked: Then your primary blog will know about this blog I'm telling you since you're the side blog, why don''t make action about it, not you but your primary blog-to follow such blog then those posts will come to your admin's dash. Simple as that.
