Important: Have you Notified your Stock Providers?Hi all,Important: Have you Notified your Stock Providers?1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I just wanted to take a quick moment out from registering people for the Photomanipulation Tournament to bring to your attention an issue that is plaguing our community.
I think a lot of people think that, with the new Mentions system, there is no need to notify stock providers when you use their work. This is untrue! There are a few of reasons why you still need to notify them via note or comment, as per their preference, when you use their stock:
1. Some people turn their Mentions off because they get to be annoying. Thus, if you don't tell them, they may never see your gorgeous work.
2. Stock providers like to keep track of your work, and notes/comments help with that.
3. If your stock provider doesn't see your work, he/she can't give you love!

1. Please link back to FantasyStock. :faq81:
2. Please send a link to your artwork in a note to me.
3. Please send a link to your print/commercial use or reproduction as soon it is up for sale at dA. I usually add your prints to my wishlist!
1. I ask for a link back in the description of each deviation that has been created with even one small element of my stockart. (That's what that faq link is doing up there; see above. It will tell you how to make links on dA.) If you showcase your work on another website, please add a link to my main page here at dA on the same web page where you display your art. I think that's fair.
2. If you used my stockart, I want to see it! Notes are usually the fastest way yo get my attention.
