It's ranting time!*sigh*
I don't approve of redistributing Win100% models into public :c
One thing is that we edit it. I think it's okay if we keep the edit for ourselves or friends. But redistributing it to the public without anything... Is a no-no. I've seen some 'PoPulARz' do that and seems like they don't give a single fuck, just because they are popular and people might be too afraid to tell them. I guess they think they are Gods that are allowed to do anything they want. Oh well... I don't really have the best opinion about these people. They forget they edited a model that is supposed to be paid to get. Even if you buy the magazine, you are still not allowed to redistribute this model nor edit to the public. I'm personally not able to get any of the Windows 100% magazines because they don't ship this to Poland. Besides it is expensive as fuck.
Yeah, I've edited a few Windows/Melon Books models, so what? As I said before, I keep ALL the models for myself. I will never even think of putting
MMD and Cyber-Bullying
So one morning I was going through my DA messages and there was one from deviant RaikuHoshigami with a rather interesting proposition. Basically, he suggested that I write an article on "Cyber-Bullying" as it pertains to MMD.
He raised some really interesting points with respect to this subject and in a nutshell these were all points that affect many of us here on DA who are MMDers, either directly or indirectly. Especially since outside of Japan, many MMDers are exactly in the demographic groups most likely to be affected by "Cyber-Bullying"; namely those who are in their pre-teen and teens. There are also instances to my direct knowledge where some who are in their early 20s have been negatively impacted in their experiences with MMD by others on DA. So, this is a subject worth visiting in a little more depth.
So what we will do here are the following:
(And I'm afraid we can only touch the subject in this article briefly as i
Genghis Whenever we were bad my mother used to take us to the mall to see Genghis Kahn. They kept him in a dusty diorama of a Mongolian steppe, all tall grass and yurts. He sat on a throne of bone (well, plastic shaped like bone), scowling in incomprehension at the American kids who flocked around him like startled lemmings. My mother would usually push us toward him, saying things like “Tell him what you did to your father’s stamp collection.” Genghis would give a grunt, spit a wad of phlegm onto the tall grass, and give us a wizened, wrinkled grimace, as if he had to go to the bathroom.
He terrified me.
My brother couldn’t get enough of him.
When my brother got caught in my mother’s evening dress, my mother grabbed us both and dragged us to Genghis. It was a slow day, and we were the only kids crowding him. “Tell him what you did,” my mother hissed a
