Stock photo thread
 
So today I was thinking and I realized that sometimes when I want to make a really cool avatar for myself or someone else I don't have the resources to do it. Like, I don't have the images needed for it because most of the photos found on the web are copyrighted and such. Yes, there are some sites that photos are free for the taking, but a lot of the time they just don't have things like Webkinz on there. :D

My solution was making a stickied thread in like the a/s section and have it be a "stock photo thread" where all us WI members can post photos that ANY member on this site can use for just this site! Of course the photos posted their could only be things that the original member posting it is ok with anyone using, and is something that would be useful for this site.

I really think this is a good idea because sometimes I need plush pictures of a Webkinz I don't have, and it just doesn't happen lol!

Hope you like it! :thumbup:

This is a good idea, cuteforpop. I agree with how you can't find the plushie pictures if you don't have it. There is something that could be a problem though... Like, a lot of WI members are younger and don't know the whole "copyright" idea, and they just take pictures. Or, they just don't know how to find out if the picture is copyright. (Some sites let you right-click an image even though pics are copyrighted). That's the only thing I can think of though, and it could actually happen because it doesn't need programmed in. I would definitely contribute :).

Thanks Webbie! Yeah, that might become an issue of younger ones just trying to help but taking ones off Google, but the thread could reinforce the idea of only using your own photos. :thumbup:

This is a great idea! :thumbup: There would be some issues though, like what webbieluvr1924 said. But it's still a fantastic idea!

You can always do a google image search for Webkinz plushies. And the in game webkinz pics like the avvies available in the custom section for WI are all located in the WIki:) Even the ones not in the custom selection.

Creating a thread for this would be unmanagable. If someone posted a copyrighted image but uploaded it to tinypic first we would have a very difficult time finding out that information.

There is an A/S club in the club section located in the link below. If you ever needed something you couldn't find I'm sure someone there could help. Or a shop in the a/s section could help I'm sure:)
