... because it's time...  

(c) unsoon

As for me - I'm most of the above.

Ok, I don’t know where to start so let’s start from the main point.

Due to a series of unfortunate events, as of now all KAT-TUN related files will be kept under f-lock. This includes cross posting to communities as well.

By now everyone must know that nothing in my journal except for my ‘silly’ fangirl spazzings belong to me. Magazine Scans and videos were posted via someone – whether through Original owner or another middle person. The only thing I ever took credit for was video conversion.

For this reason, I’ve ALWAYS provided the names of who is to be credited. For Scans I go as far as to include the names and/or source so that even after you download the material, you’ll always know who to credit. As for videos, they are always credited and in the event, the direct person/individual isn’t known, then the source of the file is always mentioned.

For this reason, and for those who have asked, I’ve always said, if you want to repost anything from this journal, please do so BUT please keep ALL the Original Credits. And the original credit does not include me.

If you browse through my journal then you’ll see that even silly gifs that I normally pick up in Google images has a credit attached.

In any case, when you feel the need to repost without the proper credit and then get caught, it’s only then you’ll opt to point out that you got stuff from my LJ.

Quite frankly, while all my files may not be authorized because they were posted publicly, I’m tired of taking the fall for those who repost without even telling me but then when busted, redirect the fire for me to take the burn… and this has happened a few times before – but I settled the matter and decided not to let those who care or are affected suffer.

Since joining LJ, everything I do is for the love of KAT-TUN. In my own way I’ve always tried to contribute something to the fandom. As I said before, nothing in this journal belongs to me completely. I can’t translate so I am of no use there; I’m no good at graphic design; as for scanning ( as shitty as the quality is – I only reshare what’s publicly shared and which is done within discretion; and I’ll never own an original video because living 14 hours behind Japan’s time makes things sorta impossible.

However, I always try to share. I’m always thinking of how to get other’s involved. How to make others enjoy whatever KAT-TUN has been up to… because let’s admit it, the more we get and know about them it’s the more we fall deeper in love with and appreciate them.

Many times, I post things here first without even watching it beforehand and even though I post scans, there are many times (like the last set of scans I posted), as soon as I access them I just post them without fully giving it a read through because I don’t have the time… but I do it ASAP because I know others may want to see it.

All I ever tried to do is to be of use around the fandom. But when people go around taking stuff and repost without the proper credit then word gets around that I’m stealing files – so I think it’s time for me to stop and think and I’ve decided that it’s time…

This past year and few months was good while it lasted with sharing KAT-TUN stuff with you all… I’ve met some great people through this process.

But I’ve decided that fandom should ONLY serve me ONE purpose… and that single purpose is to release my stress – not cause it.

So as of now, all KT files (if I do decide to still post) will become f-locked and I’ll go through my list to add a few people who I know have always supported me and this journal.

U always asked the owner of the scans or clips to repost and share, right? and u always credit them properly, right? Then why can someone blame u to steal anything?! Those who repost without credit are to blame.
Hope the stress is over soon!

:( *hugs* I'm sorry to hear that. :(
It's not easy to get things (scans, vids, pics, etc.) in our fandom and it becomes even harder *sigh*

*pats and hugs again*

(*hugs*) I support your decision. The most important thing is not to get stressed out by fandom, right?

If I remember correctly, it was through your reliable sharing of scans that we met, so it'll be really sad if you can't make lots more friends through it too, but it's completely understandable if you need to resort to this, I know you've had quite a lots of trouble from people who don't understand/get stuff wrong.

I've never once seen you claim something to be yours when its not, you always include credits on scans so I don't see how you can be accused of stealing!

But anyways, don't get stressed over it dear! You just enjoy LJ the way you want and it's only going to be those people that complain about you who miss out if you lock your posts anyway!

I'm so sorry to hear what happened =(

Really, if people were dense enough to point back to you when it was obvious you disclaimed what you shared and posted the proper credits then I'd say they weren't even reading your posts properly >.<

But anyway I hope these issues won't stress you out any longer, you're right, fandom is for us to de-stress after all =)

Just do what feels right and I'm sure everyone will respect your decision~ <3 *huggles*

Lets send pirate!Kame to find the culprit and send them to justice!!!

But for the time being here a warm hug to comfort you since I'm so far away :)

It must be frustrating when you've give so much, not even hoping for a return. At least a lil appreciation and piece of mind would be nice. But instead, its troubling you. I can really understand how you are feeling.

Dear, we will support you all the way. Whatever you've decided, I'll always be on your side. NO MATTER WHAT!

A bit of love from oh-chan

*pat pat*

laniechan_desulaniechan_desu on January 17th, 2012 08:22 pm (UTC)
aww. *hugs* i hope you'll be ok soon. we're just here for you.

i know that you just wanna share KAT-TUN love and stuff for the sake of us, your fellow hyphen. Like minna have said, since I joined LJ or be in KAT-TUN fandom, you are always the one who updates us about KT and even share files. You never fail to put credits, disclaim it and mention that it is the owner who minna should credit. other people who talked about you negatively, wont understand how you share coz they dont know you that well.

the commotion that took place was just a misunderstanding, the one who really violated the rules is the one at fault. Its just that the baka girl pointed out that you are the original source and thats why all hell broke loose and even erases/block (?) the real owner from commenting (?) in her YT. I cant stomach how the girl explained herself (even compared you and the others). T.T Shes saying like she's not the one to be blamed, ohgawd. people these days. >_<

so much for that. anyway, I also know that you understand how the owner felt about it and you actually approached her in a nice way. She is also nice so i think, soon, you both will be ok.

if you need someone to talk to, im just here yknow, just a tweet away. hehe.

i will always be thankful to you for sharing KT stuffs. i respect and understand you. :)

Awww I know the feeling...and I think you made a good decision! I hope it'll work out like this, because I love the stuff you post!
I hope you'll be feeling fine again soon and that you'll have a lot of fun around here in fandom! :)

I sorry to hear that people have abused your kindness and made you feel this way. I find it funny how people have this ability to ruin such good things.

Good luck in the future and I hope you at least continue to post your KAT-TUN love flail posts. I do so enjoy seeing how others react to moments that I love as well.

hazarianhazarian on January 18th, 2012 03:56 am (UTC)
Ugh, sorry to hear that your Kat-tun related activities have become source of stress. Your stuff is really great, I can't believe you are not a Japan based fan since you are always so well informed and have all these cute pics and videos. I wish you all the best in resolving current misunderstandings. Stay cool :)

I'm sorry to hear that there are still people hotlinking and re-posting your stuff without crediting you... =( I can understand your decision, though it's a shame it had to go there...

I hope you keep up your great work! You've got my support =D
snowdropngocsnowdropngoc on January 18th, 2012 12:07 pm (UTC)
hope you will feel better soon and i want to thank for all your post , i know that you just want to share and i love when you do that . have a nice day!
tabbitabbi on January 18th, 2012 02:14 pm (UTC)
well, we r not exactly friends but i feel like i know you since i've been following your journal for quite some time. it's a very informative, stress-releasing, funny way of having my kat-tun fill because i enjoy your posts so much.

i hope this blows off soon. bad feelings always go away after some time. after being sad, there's no other way but for you to be happy after some point right, even if its over something so silly. as long as kame is there, i think (and hope) you'll be fine. smile! *hugs*
surfinupcalisurfinupcali on January 18th, 2012 04:46 pm (UTC)
