Justin does post. Just not as often as he used to. I am sure that between the real life stuff and the 2 sites that he and Wendy run, he is pretty busy.

Precisely my point! I don't WANT anyone to steal MY photo to use for whatever. That is illegal. I've even had a photo of MYSELF stolen, off of my boss's website by a company called Google Ad. They used my photo, my NAME and then added some false testimonial for their product. I was in the process of getting a lawyer and they took it off. (must have intuitively known they were about to be busted!)

So, be careful where you are getting your photos. Internet photo stealing, UNLESS it it deamed Ok by the website, IS illlegal and it IS done, all of the time.

u should take it as a complament when other people copy ur avatar... i don't USE other people's avatars, but if i like them i save them on the computer... like i found one that said "bee my valentine" with a horse dressed up as a bee... i found another one and this one's kind of wierd but it said "even purple dinosuars like coka-cola" and it had this dinosuar on it drinking some pop... as i said before, i don't use them, its just if i like them i put them on my computer... it sounds like a complament to me

Yes, stealing ANY photo on the internet is terrible, but unfortunately, it does happen.

You should be careful and make sure it is not a photo that they have created. That is illegal, no matter WHAT you are using it for.

I will ask Justin if our site has this capability. I'm not sure that it does, but I will make him aware of it.

That said, he is very very busy. It will be on his list of 'to dos' but please have a realistic expectation about when it might be completed.

Default Re: [SOLVED] For Site Owner: Justin AVATAR copying

Hey guys,

It's actually impossible to prevent people from copying images off of the Internet. There are ways to prevent right-click functionality on images, but it sacrifices other functionalities in the forum.

That said, people with a modern browser like Safari or Internet Explorer can use the inspector tools in them and still take your image, and almost all images are cached locally on users' computers, so they can be retrieved that way as well. Finally, everyone here takes screenshots of Webkinz World and they're likely to just take a screenshot of the images if all else fails!

So, you see, I'm really sorry, but the only way to prevent it is to not post it!
