I recently put my gallery in storage because of art theft issues.  Later I removed a few pieces and put them back in my main gallery.  When I decided to unstore more images at a later date…I found I was unable to.  I sent a ticket to the Help Desk and they said this is a known bug and “they are working on it.”  I’ve found complaints of this bug going back several years so I guess they have yet to fix it or it’s just not that big a priority for them or something.

I find it a huge loss however.  I’ve used this account actively for 12 years now, and had a subscription most of that time.  The fact that most of my art is gone is a pretty big “glitch.”  Reuploading 12 years worth of images is not  feasible.  This is all a bit devastating.

 

So as a warning to others.  Think twice before storing your gallery.  You might as well have deleted it.

What drew you to my gallery and what kind of material do you most enjoy seeing from me?

The Wound! that's what brought me here...
Becasue of the title, and because of the  Pagan imagery of Cernunnos (so it wasn't a category in your poll)
the reason's quite abstract I'd say...

Chiron was a centaur... he was a very gifted healer, but he has a wound that would never heal.
In Astrology Chiron represents the something of that idea... that each person has an emotional/psychological wound they cannot heal for themselves... but they can heal others of that exact same wound...

Such Exquisite ART!

Heart Love

Hey, Jess! It's been a long time. *hug* I've been trying to look you up for a long time now.
There's only two pieces in your gallery right now and I hope we get to see your fantastic art again soon.
You're awesome. :D

Kelly!!! *massiveHugGlompTackle*  It's so good to hear from you!  Really great.  I hope you have been well.  And yeah, the gallery got put away for now, art theft blows.  I'm working on things though. ;)

You're awesome too, I love the stuff in your gallery, still great to see the Snape art as well, ha. :heart:

Your pieces are all in storage? I will refrain from 'removing them from favorites' at any cost cause I know they'll come back. What happened though?

Yeah sorry, put them in storage a while ago in reaction to a new round of art and concept theft.  Nothing new really except perhaps my weariness with it.  I know it doesn’t really actually fix anything but it’s the only thing I actually do have control over.  And thank you, yes, perhaps someday I’ll feel like putting it back up again.

Maybe find a website that has a security controls with watermarks. Go to NeneThomas.com, Jonathan E. Bowser's Goddess art site, RuthThompson.com, Robert Lynn Nelson site, JosephineWall.com and just look around at what they've done to protect their works with encoded, embedded watermarks, corner page curls and other tactics. I'd hate to see your work disappear forever cause of some crazy fucker over seas taking your works. Even though your works are digital, maybe place a 'real pencil' to the side of the art to give that extra protection? There are ways to keep the works from being taken. Talk to some website developers and see what they can do for you. *HUGS* Also, would love it if you could....put all your best works into a professionally printed art book. That way people like myself can hold your works in safety forever on our shelves. Love you.

Thank you for your suggestions and concerns.  Very kind of you.  I will say that straight across image theft is less of the issue though.  That’s been a little less difficult to deal with and usually more straight forward to remedy.  It’s the concept theft that’s really demoralizing because it is so difficult to prove often and so hard to actually get anything done about it.  The messages I’ve gotten from people who are doing this and know they are doing this have been quite awful too.  They know they are doing wrong but they know I can’t do anything about it and find it great fun to taunt me.  It’s just been years of very negative experiences now having the things I love and hold dear bastardized and twisted.  I’ve always held that the best defense against this is to stay active, keep creating and keep innovating.  They’ll never keep up.  That’s not so possible for me anymore with my rising health issues, so I’m even less tolerant to see my years worth of work picked through like a personal shopping market for art thieves.  Worn to a nub by it and very weary unfortunately.  I’ve found it a great relief to my nerves to put it all away for now, perhaps when I’m stronger again, I’ll be able to bring it back.  Thank you so much for your concern.  I’m very flattered anybody would even want my works in an actual book too, that’s very nice to hear, thank you.
