Lately, the amount of wallpapers that I have seen on MiniTokyo that are ripped are astronomical. I have been deleting three to four walls a day due to ripping. I'm a pretty laid-back mod when it comes to taking action against this besides deleting. But now, I'm going to start enforcing these rules until it calms down. If any of the mods catches ripped walls, the person's wall will be automatically deleted. And in the delete message will be what warning you are up to. When/if anyone gets up to a third warning, they will be temp banned for at least a month, and when they come back, they will not be allowed to upload any scan/wall for two weeks after that.

When the ripping calms down, then the rules will be less strict, but until then, we're going to keep the rips down to a minimum.

Also... another thing is people obviously aren't reading the rules, hence why the ripping is occurring. If any member catches a ripped wall, please report it to the mods, and leave a message to the person ON the wall to delete it because it is a rip.

Hopefully with the conjoint action of the members and mods, we can cut down on the rips. Thank you and have a good day. =D

P.S- Ok! By rip I mean a WHOLE wall, they TOOK it from someone else and put it on here under their own name. Taking a character and putting it on YOUR OWN background is not ripping. And with the ripping I WILL need the original wall from a site. Hopefully that cleans all questions and whatnot. And YES, official walls DO count as rips. Anything (background-wise) that you did not make IS A RIP.

How do you actually test who was the original author of the wall? I know it's often obvious, but you should judge it properly, no?

I hope this isn't going to turn into DA-type policy =/ Whereby we can't use any graphics in walls that we didn't draw ourselves... because I suck at drawing.

Mr Largo: Lisa, do you find something funny about the word "tromboner"?

Ripped walls...do those official wallpapers posted count? They have been a lot here recently as well. I think people get confused that the wallpaper they upload must be something they designed themselves or did I miss that in the rules?

Yeah..oh why is they are not allowed to upload? Then they will just leach from MT,I think they should not be allowed to download would be more appropriate.

I have got a question that's important to me: If I find a wallpaperish image which has undergone some terrible nearest-neighbor resampling and I kill the whole day retouching it (I'd reCG it if I had some better hardware) and put away the JPEG artifacts, is it still a rip?

I know, that I have seen so many pages, and often the Same Pictures, but I think the Background was a little different and Sometimes the same. But I have never find out, wich one was the original one, because one has written name and email adress or thomething else on it on the other one the top or a little bit from the bottom is missing.
I think when the bottom is missing it isn´t the original one.

Well if you did a extremely good job at it imho it should be allowable
provided you make very clear what it is and what you did. <g>
i remember a scan with a plane that was allowed in a similar case.

But in the end it's for the staff to decide.

No. You cannot take a wall from somewhere else and modify that wall. You can take the IMAGE but not the wall.

Re-touching/ Re-CGing another wallpaper is still a RIP. Editing another person's wallpaper is also a RIP. Basically, the ONLY copyrighted material you can use for wallpapers are the character image itself that you EXTRACTED it from somewhere....

This is a *far* too common problem. Many artists and wallpaper sites deal with it. I agree with what you said about reporing to a mod about it. Mods don't always see everything, so everyone should lend a hand and make the site a good place to be. ^-^

Hear hear. I just deleted a couple walls that violated the rules. Seriously, it's not that hard. If you didn't make it, don't upload it. Capiche? =_= And for the other mods here, if we do a warning, it should be on their userpage, so that we know when they've reached three warnings.
