Hey guys! We really wish our fandom didn’t have people who repost and claim the works of other people but unfortunately, we do. To prevent the circulation of reposted works, we’ve made a reposters page where you can ignore or avoid reblogging from the people on the list.
Message us if you wish to add a reposter to the list (please make sure they are a reposter) and please refrain from sending hate to any of the blogs.
How to tell if a blog reposts content?
- Watermarks - If the work has a watermark which does not match the source or the blog that has posted it, it’s bound to be a repost. Exceptions are if the blogger has changed their URL or wish to use a shortened version of their URL as their watermark.
- Blog links/tags - If you visit the blog of someone who makes original works, you’re likely to find link that lead you to their graphics, art, writing, etc. If the blog doesn’t have any of those links, there is a chance that what they claim to be original works are in fact reposted. Please search around/be sure before accusing anyone because they might just not have a link/tag for it.
- Special tags -If you’re unsure, check the tags of the original post. If you don’t see anything along the lines of #my edit #my gifs #my graphics #my art, etc. - It could be a repost. If they do have those tags and you’re adamant that they repost, check those tags and if they’re empty or the things within it are really inconsistent, then it’s likely they’re a reposter.
- Descriptions - A lot of people who post their own original content would most likely have an indication of it in their description/about page.
Those are just a few ways to tell if bloggers repost content or not. It won’t always be like that so be sure before any accusations are made.
As most of you already know, our fandom has a few designated tags for different things (#opgraphics, #opsourced, #opfanfic) and we thought, why not create one for the lovely and talented artists in this fandom? That’s where #opfanart comes in. Right now, the opfanart tag is already used by some of the artists within this fandom and yes, there may be some (un)sourced artwork but the plan is to fill that tag with the lovely art our fandom produces! This way, artists who used the opgraphics tag won’t have their art buried amongst gifs and edits, and vice versa.
So essentially, #opfanart is a tag for all the lovely, original art in the One Piece fandom. This does not include art taken from sites such as pixiv, even if it is properly sourced and it is most certainly not for reposted art. (You’re bound to be reported if you try this!) This tag will bring together all the art made by the fandom, allowing bloggers to view/like/reblog art along with finding other amazing artists. Please make sure you put #opfanart in the first five tags or else it won’t be shown in the tag! (See how tagging works)
We hope to see that tag filled with many amazing artworks in the near future! Please reblog to spread the word and have a lovely day :)
