Just to point out....

Mondays are not my favorite day. I tend towards cranky.

People getting their panties in a twist make me cranky. This is never good.

Anyone who wishes to discuss/argue the finer points of board rules is perfectly free to PM me. You probably won't "win"....but I'm happy to clarify at any point in time.

I just think it's a matter of manners. It's proper etiquette (from what I've been taught) to give credit where credit is due. If I'm using a sketch, I always put the source that I got it from in my description when uploading. If I'm scraplifting someone, I also source the original layout in my description. I usually put "inspired by" because it's rare that I copy something product-for-product and placement-for-placement. I'm not even sure if that's possible in real life. Anyhow - if I ever get lucky enough to have someone lift my work, I'd want credit, so I always give others credit.

from MY point of view,,,,,

I'd like to know who you copied,,,,,or what sketch you used,,,,

scrap lifting is a SKILL,,,,following a sketch is a SKILL,,,,,

gee whiz, tell us you copied so we can tell you what a fantabulous job you did COPYING!

Well, Here is how I understand it... We all know when we create something looking almost exactly like another. If its something you couldnt have done at all without looking hard at another's work-- then you should give the artist credit. If someone has copied my work--- better let me know immediately because I would be thrilled and it would make my day!! Its quite a compliment! But, I am a beginner and haven't patented any scrapbook designs.LOL!

Doesnt describe anyone in my house or entire family! But, its a nice model to try and follow. Best of Intentions are worth a lot!

This "proper etiquette" idea seems to always catch people by surprise especially newcomers. For a hobby that "has no rules" there sure seems to be some rules.

If we/scrapbook.com feels so strongly about this, they could add a "field" to the description to specifically list references/credits/infuen ces.
