So, lately I've been seeing a ton of art theft, and theres way more than when i first joined scratch. Basically,
IT NEEDS TO STOP.
It goes the same for character theft, stealing characters is not okay. Just design your own!
If you haven't created something completely by yourself, just don't share it! Its okay to reference, but not to trace. Other people's art and characters aren't for you to use whenever you feel like it!
Everyone has their talents and flaws, but stealing that from someone else in order to make yourself look better is not okay.
If you are stealing art: Stop. It doesn't help anyone. Instead of just taking the easy route and bringing along hate comments and possibly getting banned, just practice as much as possible.
Message to ST: Its understandable that there are a lot of problems on scratch, but I've noticed that with some issues along these lines absolutely nothing happens, even if stolen projects are reported. Art theft affects a lot of people, and it needs to be payed more attention to.
