Greetings, fellow geeks!
I thought I’d better post this on the off-chance I get lucky, but if anyone found a white plastic bag on Sunday 28th at MCM Expo/London Comic-Con (at the ExCel centre) with an Aeris (FF7) Bandai figure in it and some random postcards, I will pay a *handsome reward upon it’s safe return! Willing to travel to collect!
(Completely gutted when I got back to the car and realised it wasn’t there.)
Thanks all! (Also, any reblogs would be very much appreciated!)
*Said “handsome reward” may be expressed metaphorically. Any monetary value may be substituted with hugs and/or eternal gratefulness!
Sorry but the only thing that bugs me more than not sourcing is sourcing places like 9gag and places like that.
Just some insight into this for those who don’t know. 9gag steals content constantly! They take peoples work and watermark it with their logo and never give attribution for anything! They crop work as to remove peoples watermarks who are rightful owners of said work. They are dubious in every way shape and form. They are thieves of the highest caliber and plagiarists of the lowest common denominator so don’t support them whenever possible, which should be always.
Reblogging with the reason as to why as given by the Scott. Why reblog again? Because I keep seeing this shit on my dash. Don’t make me unfollow people I like because they keep posting shit from 9GAG
Dash would you please stop. Please. 3 in the past couple of minutes……no. Don’t….Stop making me see this when I refresh
bringing this back. BECAUSE STOP
REBLOGGING cause its needs to been seen as often as possible by as many people as possible so this shit stops. Post 9gag and I shitcan ya, NO EXCEPTIONS. Put your money where your mouth is even if it is only something as seemingly inconsequential as a reblog, don’t reblog or support 9gag ever!
needs to be brought back again
I agree to most of the points above, however the reason why most pictures on 9GAG aren’t sourced is because the uploader couldn’t be bothered to (or just didn’t include) the source when initially uploading the image; it’s not 9GAG that actively remove the source/watermarks (as far as my own experience has taught me; I could be wrong, but my time spent on that site tells me that I’m not).
I, personally, don’t upload anything unless I either know, or can find, it’s source and I often spend a lot of time searching for an original post/image, when I know the one I’ve seen isn’t the original. In the case of Tumblr, I always want to reblog the original post, not a re-post someone has made (because they either want the credit themselves, or they just haven’t done their research to see if it’s already been posted). It also makes me very angry when I know someone has posted something, without crediting the creator/source, when I know that it wouldn’t have taken more than a 2 second check on Google to find it. Or when it’s credited to another image-sharing website, when the original source is actually displayed in the image itself! (Oh yes, I’m sure we’ve all seen that happen!)
The one redeeming factor of 9GAG (and, again, I do agree with the above points; them putting their watermark on every single picture is something that frustrates me to no end) is that you can (and I have) found a hell of a lot of amazing original content, by being directed to Tumblr or DeviantART (etc) which I wouldn’t have found out about, had I not been browsing images on that site.
When you upload to 9GAG (and all image-sharing sites I’ve checked for this feature so far) there is a very clear (not hidden or obscured) box labelled “Via / Source (recommend)” just underneath what tags you’re putting into it… Please remember that people are responsible for their own actions; it’s when they disassociate themselves from those actions that it’s a real threat, I think.
I don’t actually use 9GAG often any more (not for political reasons; I’m mainly just sick of all the smart-alec comments on every bloody picture, as it almost always ends in people having a go at each other over the web for no apparent reason!) but please don’t swear off something that does bring good (seriously, there’s some great stuff to be found there!) just because the majority of the people who use it are inconsiderate or ignorant to online/art-based etiquette…
If we all did that, I literally don’t think we’d be able to use any website!

Does London Film And Comic-Con have a tag?..
I AM LOVING THIS PLACE!!
I just have a lot of feelings...: Just gonna say this real quick before I got to bed. -
Just be aware that…the gods and goddesses in Norse mythology come from actual religion. Like…people worship them as their deities…and people who worship these deities know a lot more about them than you do as a marvel comics fan. (Unless y’know you’re a marvel comics fan and a follower of Norse…
I’m not religious, but this is just common sense…
Have you ever wondered that maybe Loki does exist? He’s just posing as a famous actor who just happens to play the part of Loki in a multi-million dollar film in an attempt to get followers so he may one day… Take over the world?
This ruined my head. <3
First, notice the explicit and expected vanity of/from Thor pre-banishment. This cut scene also explains why the coronation scene in the movie was the way it was (Odin DID look pissed at Thor and the entrance was definitely glorified—though I thought that part was normal for Asgardian coronations…guess not!).
Then notice all the brotherly feels coming from Loki (or maybe those lines are said out of bitterness? I can’t tell…it could go either way) and weep for what’s been tossed aside out of anger and jealousy (or weep for the pain that Loki’s clearly been expressing all these years and that no one has noticed/cared about). ;__;
Just as I thought my Loki-feels were starting to subside… *Sigh*
Welp! Time to think about Loki some more… See you all in the Loki tag. <3
Loki is a great character, and it’s completely okay to like him, sympathize with him, and root for him. It’s even okay to do these things WITHOUT woobifying him and trying to make him blameless in the events of Thor and the Avengers.
What’s not okay, however, is using misogynist slurs and character hate in a character’s tracked tag under the guise of “character analysis”, when it is clearly nothing but ridiculous character bashing.
It makes you a flaming douchebag.
“Sif is a flaming cunt” anyone? :P And yes, Loki’s damaged, but he’s not 100% blameless for his actions.
There are many sides to him; the trickster, the manipulator, the god who kills for fun and the hurt son and brother… It’s all these things (and more) that make him so interesting…
Why would anyone even want to turn him into a sniveling wreck of a man, who’s single solitary goal in life is to get a goddamn kawaii hug from his biiiig bruvva (omg so kyute 4eva<3<3<3) and then go eat some ice-cream and live happily ever after? Where’s the reality in that!
And finally… Reece Shearsmith in glasses.
YIP. I JUST DIED AGAIN.
This has all been too much for my eyes tonight.
(and I have never been happier)
Yeeeah, judge. You know I’m right though.
I love how mental Tumblr girls are. <3 You ladies make me feel normal. (That is a compliment, I promise!)
Also: dis. pic.
Because my mum (yellow) is just too awesome!
(The colour-scheme used here is no accident..! <3)
I’ll never look at my keyboard in the same way again
OH. MY. GOOD. LORD!! :O
I don’t care how illegal this is, I will not be refused access to this video just because I live in the UK. ):
