So my sister got back from her trip to NY, and while I was eating Hershey's and remembering just how bad American chocolate is to Australia's, I came across two pictures from her trip that just had me laughing.
This was a pic taken at Naritas Airport in Japan. I guess this would be the equivalent of those signs that read "don't bring bombs on board the aircraft"? XD She also caught some pics of two women in their Yukata catching the train amidst school kids, which I thought was pretty cool. So totally stoked for saving up for my trip with Erre, we definitely gotta try and make it to Japan in 2011.
OK, I don't know about you guys, but there's something about neon lights that doesn't really shout "Police: Respect My Authority". I mean, looking at it, I would kinda half-expect to walk in and find cabaret dancers in police uniforms. XD Judging from the rest of the pics, New York looks like an awesome place to visit, but my sister was telling me about the smog and pollution there which gives me pause. Guess I should just stick with wanting to visit the southern states, yes? XD
OK, now for a question about proper crediting etiquette. When using a Friends Only Banner that someone else has made, how do you guys give credit to the maker? Because personally, I think the proper way is to either give credit on the FO post itself or on your profile such that it states: FO Banner made by codegal182
or something along that line. That's reasonable right? That way, all users that come across it can clearly see where they can also find it and who it was made by, just like how everyone else that I've observed does it.
And yet, the other day, I came across a profile that was using a banner from the timelessengage
graphics comm that I run with a few users with no credit whatsoever that I could see visible to my sister who indeed made the graphic. When I informed errechan
about it, she of course went and asked if she could be credited for the banner in question. The reply? A deletion of said banner and a terse reply informing her that there was a "link" on her profile.
Now correct me if I'm wrong, but a picture of a crown that links to my sister's journal does not translate into "FO Banner made by errechan
", and if it does and I'm totally out of touch with this new hip and down to earth internet jargon, someone please let me know so I can learn this new language. Honestly, how hard is it to write a few words either on your profile page or underneath the banner of your Friends Only post to credit someone? Its not rocket science.
