Don’t repost public domain gifs guys, people get butt-hurt over that kind of thing.
They have the right to. This is Tumblr. Whether you buy into it or not, we’re in the business of getting notes and followers, and making gifs is just one way of achieving that. Sure, we don’t necessarily own the content, but we still put in the effort of making these so it’s lame when somebody just has to right-click, save it, re-up it, and tag it solely to get the precious notes that should belong the person who made it. Just sayin’.
I hear you, I really get it…but this is the internet…your gifs are going to be everywhere. Sometimes, you just save shit with out even realizing too (I know you all have a folder filled with gifs and pics or whatever). I don’t have time to sit around looking for who made a gif of Kevin Nash from Bash At The Beach or some shit from like 5 years ago. I get it though, and I really love and respect the passion a lot of you gif mofos have, it means a lot to me. I just don’t see the point in getting angry or upset about someone posting your work, you know it’s going to happen and not everyone can be as nice as I am and delete it after it has been brought up that I “stole” a gif.
I apologize if I upset anyone, but relax, it’s just a 7 second moving image, not something you spend 7 months painting to perfection.
Seven months? Seven hours? Seven minutes? What does that matter? Point is we still made it, and you didn’t. We put the time and effort in making them while all it takes is a mere few seconds for someone else to right-click and repost it. I get especially heated over it because I don’t have the luxury of using something as easy and convenient as Photoshop. I use fucking Gimp. Gimp’s the fucking worst. I have to click frame by frame from my mouse on a video until it’s completely right, then repeat the same damn process over and over again, and it’s a bitch and a half. Those gifsets I make can take up to two-three hours alone due to me looking through footage, watching matches until I see the perfect move being thrown in, then working it all out on that piece of shit, and I’m lucky if I happen to get ten notes on them. Why should I be content with those ten notes when somewhere out there, there’s someone who has the gifs I worked on posted with over a hundred notes? Tags and everything to boot. That ain’t right.
I’m not accusing you of being a thief, and I know you meant no harm when you found that gif, but you should still see why anyone would get upset over it.
I gotta say, as someone who makes gifs, it really pisses me off when someone reposts my shit and gets 500+ notes on it. It’s obvious that people are just trying to steal your shit and get notes on it because they saved your gif and reuploaded it when they could’ve simply reblogged it.
Reaction gifs are another story, though.
