I know, it's 15th of January. Where the heck was I!?
Well, if you must know, like most Januaries I am busy preparing for my preschool class. Some of you might know that I am a preschool teacher and handling 4-6 year olds are not easy. Especially the school system of my country.
Now, let's get onto the updates, hmmm?
There was someone on DeviantArt who stole my work and erase my watermark and my signature THEN selling them off as his/her own profit. The main problems were the fact that I saw this image on Google and my work that she edited was spread over the media like Facebook, Twitter, Youtube and such. Claiming it as her own. She even edit some words on top of it. Worse of it all, she didn't ask for permission and she didn't even credit me.
Now, does that sound like a thief to you??
So I informed politely to this person via Note on Deviantart, commenting on the work, even sending an inbox on her Facebook. I waited for a week or two for response. Nothing.
I had a few great followers even commenting, noting, even go to her Facebook page to put the image down or at least credit me... And still, nothing.
This thief is a tough one. Using ignorance as her weapon. We've tried reporting the deviation but DeviantArt didn't take any action. AND IT SUCKS!! So I waited and waited for it. But still, nothing.
A friend of mine on Facebook suggest that I should gave up. Let the thief win. And indeed, I was about to and I was heart broken just to hear a friend suggesting such a thing. So on that very day, I gave up right after I filled in the form for Copyrights.
== AND THE GOOD NEWS!!==
The very next day, I received and email from DeviantArt that they have taken action to the thief. And she is officially banned!!
I was at the verge of giving up! I thank God that they finally take it down. So I want to thank you to those who comment, note, inbox this thief and even tried to report the stolen work. Thank you. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!
Here's a piece of advice. If someone stole anyone's work. DO NOT CLICK ON 'Report Deviation'. It doesn't do SHIT! Special thanks to Uniquely-Designed for linking me this extremely important link. Click on that one instead and filled in the form. I had my response the very next day.
Also, when submitting a deviation, be sure you check that little thing on the bottom that says 'Publishing Options' and then choose 'License: Creative Commons License'. Then just select certain stuff and stuff then you're done!
Once again, THANK YOU to those who support me. I love you guys to much.

Yeah, here's some shameless advertisement of me singing/covering 'Let It Go' from Frozen (Idina Menzel). == Last and Not Least ==
Just wanna say thank you to magion02 for giving me my first DeviantArt Subscription! It's a shame that it's over on 21st this month but I'm more than happy knowing I ever got one. Thank you!
And my watchers and followers. Thank you so much for your love and support. I will remember this always. <3
