Update (28 April 2021 - 8:02 am) -
I am still waiting on the CS team to respond to my comments sent on 25 April 2021, at 10:14 am, and 26 April 2021, at 10:50 am.
I have reminded the CS team for the third time that "being asked after being namedropped feels like being asked to do the emotional labor of assisting in writing [their] post against me and providing evidence that the team should have on hand as community moderators."
I would not have engaged with them if I wasn't namedropped by the Owner or approached for evidence (that I reiterate, the team should have documented and filed beforehand) by one of the CS moderators to help draft their documentation.
Other comments included:
- Discussions regarding screenshot releases,
- I have stated that the cut-off date should be at least until the present time and not 18 March to show the conversation about namedropping,
- I have stated and asked for verification that only the release of moderation-specific screenshots should be included.
- I have requested the CS Owner contact me directly regarding the release of uncut and unfiltered screenshots,
- Evidence of third parties included in their documentation should I be required to respond to them,
- Clarifications regarding one of their requirements for the Tracer,
- Estimated date of their documentation's release
As of 28 April 2021, at 8:02 am, I have not received a response, nor have I been directly contacted by the Owner.
- Updated time and date to 8:02 am for the the below statement:
- "As of 28 April 2021, at 8:02 am, I have not received a response, nor have I been directly contacted by the Owner."
- Added this statement for clarity:
- "that I reiterate, the team should have documented and filed beforehand"
- More updates for clarity
Update (25 April 2021 - 9:43 am) - I received a response on 24 April 2021and we are discussing the situation still.
All future updates will be placed in the Update Log unless important.
Update (23 April 2021 - 7:46 pm) - I responded at 12:13 am on 23 April 2021 and sent a second comment at 10:32 am. I have not received a response since then.
Update (22 April 2021 - 8:35 pm) -
The mod team of the popular CS has reached out to me on 22 April 2021 at 12:29 am. Per my agreement with them, I will continue to avoid stating their name in my bulletins.
This conversation is after the Owner of the species namedropped me on their Toyhouse and DeviantArt. I have been blocked since February by the Owner and unable to see the journal or bulletin. I have no desire to see screenshots, but a third party has given me a summary of the post.
I refute the claims that I namedropped them publicly.
I would also like to point out that the Owner posts all of the GAs and journals.
Getting banned by the Owner regardless of group membership is effectively a ban from the entire species as most of the activities would no longer be available to you to access, and you'd have to ban evade to see anything. My assumption that I was blacklisted from the CS in February was due to the Owner's block. I was unaware and not alerted by the team of any official ban in March.
The staff has requested for me to provide proof and evidence for their documentation.
I let the team know that being asked after being namedropped feels like being asked to do the emotional labor of assisting in writing the CS's post against me and providing evidence that the team should have on hand as community moderators.
They have assured me that their post is to clarify the situation and not as a call-out. I have not yet responded to them since my last message but will be doing so soon.
Update (20 April 2021 - 10:35am) - I am aware that a burner account is now engaging in various responses on the site.
I disavow this behavior and the harassment that may occur because of them. Harassing people and namedropping them is unacceptable, and I do not appreciate any of this. Just because people are doing this to me does not make it acceptable for anyone to use my experience as justification to retaliate or harass people back.
If I find out, with verifiable evidence, that this person is from any of my CSes, I will be banning them outright without hesitation.
I also want to reiterate that since various anons appear to be still bringing this up, I do not support incest in any fashion. You may read my statement below in the previous post.
Initial post: 17 April 2021
A few people have contacted me to let me know that a vent blog is discussing and speculating on my person. There are a few accusations I would like to respond to directly.
CW: Incest mention for the following paragraphs
I want to state upfront that I do not in ANY way support incest. It's a severe accusation to make against someone without proof.
I was not involved in Archanes at the time of that journal and
will be looking into rehoming have rehomed the Archanes design I previously owned. I have also since cut ties with Archanes.
Removal of art pieces from my gallery
On 25 March 2021, I shifted several deviations to storage on DeviantArt. I will happily move them out of storage if requested. The announcement I was doing so is here.
I initially stored my art because a user took art specifically from other closed species owners, including species sheets, and uploaded it to their account. To preemptively prevent this, I stored several pieces.
Unfortunately, DeviantArt is one of the best places to gain attention for adopt-designs now. Hence I still post newer art on the site.
I will always encourage people to ask for proof and double-check and will gladly clear up any misunderstandings regarding this point.
Banned from other CSes
At the current moment - I'm only now aware of being banned from the popular CS because I requested that they feel free to block me if they desire as we could not agree if someone had traced my art.
I have a new existing document that was drafted on 17 March 2021 with proof of the tracer’s actions as well as a breakdown timeline of what happened during the conversations with the popular CS moderators.
They are also aware that if I must defend my reputation that I will be utilizing screenshots and the recorded voice call from both parts of our conversations. I also have the conversations logged as HTML files which were created on 5 February 2021.
Edit on 19 April 2021 - Where I live does not require two party consent for voice recording. Thank you for reminding me to clear that up, Anon.
Addressing the tracing (Redux)
Points on these posts remain. I feel the same as I do about these points as the first day I wrote them.
Again, if anyone wants proof, my Youtube, Twitch, and TikTok are available to peruse.
Addressing the tracing (Redux, Part II - Naming and Shaming)
I want to address the fact that the tying of my name to Archanes occurred after they published their blacklist.
One of these named individuals is linked to me as they had traced my art in January.
I was in contact with one of the owners of Archanes as they were aware of individuals who were affected by this tracer before 2017. When drafting the blacklist, they requested to use screenshots of the items he had traced from me, and I agreed.
The blacklist no longer contains the reasons for blacklisting, and the screenshots aren't there. Edit at 10:40pm - The entirety of the blacklist is no longer accessible.
While I suspect the vent blog posts pivoting off the blacklist to link my name to Archanes may have been him or his friends, I'm also aware that I have no proof and this is conjecture.
However, I am aware that he's still responding to others with claims that I'm tracing and blacklisted from several other CSes, the most recent being his response to Archanes. [Redacted, on request from PopCS team.]
To this individual: I have not blocked you, but I have no desire to talk to you.
Stop taking bits of other people's art to merge together to trace and sell and please take the popular CS artist's offer to help you as her friend to no longer trace or "use grids".
Your blacklist in my CS is still active as well, and the terms for removing the blacklist haven't changed regarding that.
Addressing the other drama
I'm unsure of all other drama I've supposedly created and would love to get some clarity on this - it will let me know to work on myself on certain things or otherwise refute baseless claims, as I have to do right now.
It feels weird to be accused of things when it's untrue and unfounded for the second time. Especially since some of it is a repeat of the other incident, which apparently originated from someone close to the tracer (https://toyhou.se/~bulletins/269482.regarding-rumors-of-tracing ).
I’m also trying to figure out why running a CS like a business is a bad thing - I’m handling people’s money, why wouldn’t I want to ensure things run like a business.
Also hey, since you’re already here.
