someone put my tranceling on their "tranceling wishlist" ?????

it just.. makes me really uncomfortable?
the journal had links to a bunch of trancelings and tagged the owners and at the bottom saying what they could offer for any of the trancelings?

kinda rude tbh i think i mean I didn't ask them and I never said anything about my tranceling being up for trade?

please don't ask about my characters unless I say they're up for trade then THEY'RE NOT

Chinchillas or Degus?

Journal Entry: Sat Jul 25, 2015, 11:55 AM

Hello, everyone! :)
I want to get a new animal.. And I am stuck in the decision whether to buy a Chinchilla family or a Degu family..



Do you have these animals?

I am tending to Degus since they are dayactive, but Chinchillas are much cuter..

I'd love to hear from you! Thank you! :hug:

The Future of Artist's Copyright Is Not At Risk!Updated Foreword: There was some confusion as to the authenticity of this legislation, but Brollonks brought it to my attention that this is indeed real, and provided links to the official government website that back this up. It is not a hoax. However, misunderstandings of the severity and implications of the report have occurred, which we can now clear up for you: No, there is no bill. But, yes there is just a notice of inquiry at the moment.
It will likely not affect us. However it is important to keep an eye on these things.

Again (to reinforce this point) we do not need to be afraid! As Homophones brought to my attention, the "legislation" is actually just a "note of inquiry". That means that it is a hearing where comments and opinions are invited, but no rules have as yet been proposed. There is no bill yet... t

Turns out it was either a hoax or a lot of hot air. Either way, I can breathe easier. :b

This is extremely troubling news, and it needs to be shared and spread as far as it can. I honestly really hope that this somehow turns out to be false. But in any case, this is the most distressing news I've heard in a while, and in this day and age, that's saying something. I urge all of you artists to write a letter to the US Copyright Office. Tell them how damaging this is to every young, creative mind out there who wants to pursue their artistic dreams but will never be able to afford to register copyright on every single work they have ever produced. This is cruelly unfair to all of us who need the protection of current copyright law, as if art theft wasn't annoying enough to police already. Make your voice heard.
