I proposed we ask DSP on their Twitter for permission. Mogeko Violette has already talked to them there. Plus it seems like DSP been using Twitter as a replacement for Tumblr these days. So I guess either me, Violette, or you (if you have a Twitter.) could ask. How about it?
Hmm... That's good. For now wait for someone else especially theseusers as I believe that they can guide 'ya. It's already like 11:50 pm here in my place, so I have to sleep. :/ I'll try to check out this thread immediately after I wake up.
"Hello there, Funmusea. You may or may not know that there is a wikia dedicated to your work called Okegom wikia. We have recently noticed that we probably don't have permission when we asked the founder of the wikia. We are greatly sorry for not noticing this earlier and uploading your artwork to the wikia without your permission. We like to ask for your permission now if you are ok with it. Have a nice day. Sincerely,..."
"Hello there, Funamusea. I hope things are going fine for you. You may or may not know this but there is an English wikia dedicated to you and your work known as the Okegom Wiki. The wikia can be found here: http://okegom.wikia.com/wiki/Deep-sea_prisoner. We, the Okegom Wiki Team, has recently noticed that we probably don't have permission to reprint your art. We tried to asked the founder of the wikia but he didn't respond to our question for like a month now. We are terribly sorry for not noticing this earlier and reprinting your artwork to the wikia without your permission. With this, the team has decided that we finally would like to ask for your permission if you are fine with it. We truly hope that this isn't too troubling. We look forward for a positive response. Have a nice day. Sincerely, ~(NAME OF SENDER), a member of the Okegom Wiki Team"
As much as possible, we need someone to translate and send it. Mogeko does understand a little bit of English but y'know, they'll probably understand more if the text is translated in Japanese.
We have two available users here who know Japanese: Violette and Neko. Sadly, Violette is quite busy currently (yes, I've been following her Twitter for quite a while now). We cannot interfere with her as much as possible. About Neko, we can let her translate the text and send it if she is up to it. She said that she could help so probably her help will be put to here. If Neko refuses, then we might wait a little while or proceed to Method B, which is...
Method B: Simpify n' Send
We could just send it in English but we would have to simplify the text with very shallow vocab. The downside here is that Mogeko might find difficulty deciphering the text fully, even if it's in the simplest form. So, it would be up to their English vocab knowledge to understand it.
Heyyooooo im here i threw my maths homework at a side
After reading the constructed letter, i've already translated the whole thing with a slight changes here and there. i wonder if its ok? i tried my best tho, it would be great if anyone could correct any grammar mistakes since im still learning japanese
I will reply here as soon as i got a reply from them... But for now after 10+ hrs they still havent reply so :o
Probably they are busy, considering they are making 2 games and 1 remake and working on tons of other series... So yea lets keep our fingers crossed and patiently wait for their answer _(:3J )L
Since asking here in the wiki is no good, I might ask for bureaucracy through his Twitter so that I can fulfill my promise to Shizaya and promote other users. (I can already see someone who can be part of the staff...) ;)
However... I'm shy...... D: *puts on the paper bag mask of shyness*
eh, dont need to be shy xD Just relax, go ahead and request! Im pretty sure he will give you the rights since he has already accepted your previous request plus holy shit look at the amount of things youve contributed to this wikia damn you deserve it
ah..? no, i think you misunderstand. Jethro got promoted as a bureaucrat, and Funamusea hasnt approved nor reply, yet. So we still have to wait before we can officially announce that Funamusea approved this wikia or no...
Im back with sad news.
Which roughly translates to :
"sorry, please do not use my images/illust".
What should we do? Should we just leave the current images here like how it is now? Or should we delete them?
Anyways, i will reply them that we understood. Is that ok?
Also, if possible, stop adding images from now on. We have to respect the answer funamusea gave. I dont think pledging would help...
honestly I don't have the words to describe how bad this turned out to be...
I was thinking of pledging too but that'd be no good...
Here's the thing though...
According to the guidelines translated by seichiinara, it's only their art that requires permission. So, what legally remains and will be uploaded here will be character portraits, event CGs, current sprites and game screenshots. We'll not have any problems with them.
But deleting THE REST? That would require TOO MUCH WORK and will change everything!
I'd recommend leaving and not deleting them. We can just use links to their site and social media if there's any future significant images from them. But let's not take this for granted...
I would also recommend remaining them... imagine a page just all text but no character art... also like i said if possible please refrain from adding any future illust they post. But considering that... what if funamusea added a new character in the future?(like today they updated Tsurugigozen) also, adding link to funamusea's main page would be better since adding links straight to the illust will show up 404 error anyways.
(afterall artists also has the right to say yes or no towards their illust)
My username was replaced with another username with no edits and has sysop (admin) status o_o
"Mogeko-violette" and "Shizaya Lover" are missing...
Also on the Wiki Navigation (the one at the top), hover on Community, then Top users. On my screen, I can see that our names are gone, too... (On Top users, the system gets the seven top users according to edit count. We're ranked first, fourth and second, respectively. But somehow, we're not there...)
Well i as an artist understand the decision Funamusea made, artist are also humans so they have rights to reject something related to their art, especially when people ask for permission to edit or repost. Some artist are find with that but some arent (drawing an illust is never easy...) so yea we have to respect them as much as possible...
Nina's letter was about permission to use funamusea's images for the Carnival Rhythm Wikia.
I guess it would be too late considering that funamusea has already replied and gave us their answer. But since CR and Okegom wikia are two different ones so...
