2007-01-17 [Zab]: I think you should report at least the first one, since you have good reasons to believe it's not his and can link to the real artist. :)
I thgink you can report the second one too, if you believe he hadn't made the image. :)
(Not a guard, but I think I'm right x)

2007-01-17 [Aldalome]: Reported them.
*sigh* why do people keep putting stuff like that into their slots or descriptions? Can't they read the rules?

2007-01-17 [Zab]: Of course not, rules are for nerds, didn't you know? It's ''cool'' to break them... ;)

2007-01-17 [Aldalome]: proud to be a nerd then

2007-01-17 [Zab]: Yep.

2007-08-21 [moonscale]: I've been looking for the new rules because I think I've found some people violating them but I cannot seem to find them and when I go to report them the relevant rules are not available from the choices. Did I miss something?

2007-08-21 [sequeena_rae]: I assume you mean the copied texts? Just put it under 'other' in the guard reports. It's a new rule and there's a massive influx of reporting (I assume) so it's easier on them to have it in 'other'.


G-5. No random copied writings in (descriptions of) houses.
Writing not your own is not allowed, unless someone wrote it especially for you (a friend).
Example: No copied stories, song-lyrics etc
Short quotes, or the likes, that don't exceed 4 phrases/lines/sentences are OK.
Copied questionnaires are allowed with a limit of 50 questions. Therefore choose your questions wisely.
Uploading Art Rules

2007-11-02 [taleya]: I have a question: I am new on here, so I want to know can i use pictures of fantasy artists for my embroidery woks? Or is it absolutely prohibited?

2007-11-02 [iippo]: You mean use them as a reference? So you look at them an then repeat the image in a different medium (embroidery). I'd say that's okay, but it would be easier to understand if you could show an example :)

2008-12-02 [Shyr]: I read the Uploading Art Rules and I'm not sure about one thing, in your house you are not allowed to upload images from other websites that do not pertain to you whatsoever? So I cannot upload a picture of a Wood Elf from another website unless I drew it or it was made for me, specifically?

2008-12-02 [windowframe]: Yes, that's right. :)

2011-06-23 [kians mummy]: Patrollers

Here you cam find a list of all the Patrollers.
These people help the guards find and stop
art thieves, and other people who are up to
no good on Elftown.

2011-06-23 [windowframe]: Fixed, thanks. :)

2011-06-23 [kians mummy]: You're welcome, i have good eye for detail see, if there is any pages you would like me to run over then tell me and i will. :)

2011-06-23 [kians mummy]: on report

If you feel harassed by certain members on Elftown, please feel free to report them to the guards.However please note the following while making a report.

- Please do not make reports on behalf of someone else. We want the harassed member to report, not some protective older brother or boyfriend to do it. Similarily, do not use a clone house (another account that you have here on ET) to make a report on someone because you do not wish that member to know who reported them. Your identity will never be given out to the reported member, you have all reasons to feel safe. (Note: Many reports are obvious who they come from, so we have to reveal your identity there. If after that you get a "You reported me, you bitch!" message, we'll ban the offender.)

2011-06-23 [windowframe]: I already fixed both of those. ;)

2011-06-23 [kians mummy]: ok lol, can't find anymore but will keep searching, and earn the respect of the council

2011-06-23 [windowframe]: There's one! *points* 'anymore' should be 'any more'. ;)

2011-06-23 [kians mummy]: good lol :)

2011-06-23 [kians mummy]: it doesn't have to be x)

2011-08-10 [kians mummy]: Shouldn't there be an option of all the rules on one page? :)
