How To/What Is A Link Back by Shadow-Bases How To/What Is A Link Back by Shadow-Bases
EDIT:
Every now and then i re-mention this as a reminder to new watchers so here it is again.

--------------------------------------------------


Just a little info with what i mean on linking back is all.

Base makers all have different rules, so please dont assume its the same for all base makers. Thank you!

It's really useful comic. At the beginning I thought that by linking back you mean to put a link back to the base not to you, but then I saw you put my adoptable to "Rule-breakers" and I started to search what rule I break. Without that comic I wouldn't know what was wrong. I was sure I made everything right Sweating a little... 

Btw I hope you will remove my adoptable from "Rule-breakers" now :)

Oh, but I usually just copy the link in the bottom corner to link to your base, but I didn't know that "Link back" meant to put my edit in your comments! Thank you so much for clearing it up, and I'm super sorry for being so ignorant!

"link back" made me think I just needed to put a link back to the base, not the other way around XD sorry for the misunderstanding. Can I have my stuff out of the rule breaker's collection now? Again, I apologize for breaking the rules.

(Also I'm sorry for being so agressive in my first comment. I know I was wrong and I will make sure to follow the rules next time.)

Could we also go @ Shadow-Bases in the description, since I think that sends a notification to you saying you were mentioned...?

Always do my best to. I think the only mistake I ever made was I accidentally mentioned you for someone else's work and then quickly corrected it. :p

I accidentally do that sometimes too as I copy/paste the description of one of my similar previous artworks.

It's kinda embarrassing too, like, I should fucking know better. :p But we make mistakes. Just gotta correct that mistake. The real problem are the people who don't link back or credit either because they don't want to admit they used a base or they are just lazy and don't care. Makes it difficult on the rest of us. Like poor InuBases. Put all her bases into storage and no one has heard from her in almost a year. It's a crying shame. She made great bases and now we can't even use them anymore because some people are just so selfish and rotten. I fear the day that this might happen to Shadow. :[

Inu is still active. She's my best friend and i talk to her almost every day on skype. She's been wanting to get back in to base making, but because of all the issues and work in them she's iffy on it. 

I already put my bases twice in storage before due to this stuff. I usually do so when i get too tired of it.

I'm glad to hear she is doing well. I can understand how annoying it must be to be a base maker.
