    Credit Exchanges/Manipulation

    Recently quite a few users are manipulating the credit system as part of a personal competition. And while it isn't the fairest use of the system (in that it doesn`t accomplish the system's goal of encouraging participation in the community): using credits to barter is completely acceptable.

    That said - there are some things you need to be aware of:

    -Staff will NOT interfere if your transaction goes wrong. If you aren't happy with what you've exchanged your credits for or never recieve it at all -- we will do ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to mediate.

    -There WILL eventually be a use for credits. You will not be able to get them back or complain about having given them away in retrospect should you find you want them in the future.

    -Users having collected credits through pooling/spamming fics or selling may be excluded from or handicapped in certain events due to unfair advantages.
    The terms of a promotion are up to the staff member(s) sponsoring it.

    In other words: if you're going to give away your credits, buy credits or sell them: you do so at your own risk.

    Please keep this in mind.

    Also take in mind that requesting a credit payment on official AO threads will not be tolerated (ex: Requesting a payment for the rendering of an image in the "Rendering request Thread")... You are free to offer your credits for that service (ex: I will pay 100 credits to the one making me a sig), but not request them...

    Cheers...

    Ps: I can take any donations you want ot make to my account...

    oh... and just a note:

    if you're going to buy artwork from a user, it would be to your advantage to check their infraction history.

    A user who's just raised 70,000+ credits from original artwork sales is currently banned for plagiarising a good chunk of her "original" artwork.

    See what we mean by "at your own risk"?

    i like this idea and with how i have been sort giving out my credits because i saw
    no realuse for them yet i dont feel upset and i dont regret it either
    im notsore like someare when they want some back if they gave themyoyou
    live and learn so get over it lol.

    and as for buying walls sigs and stuff froim users does that also mean we by the rights
    to the art so we can use them anywhere and not give credit to the maker?
    just asking since most could use this as a way to not give credit where its do
    for good art wrok or something.

    That depends entirely on the terms of the agreement. But buying gift-art or commissions never grants you the right to lie about their origins. That means if you're posting it here on AO: you still need to credit the artist (since non-credited work is considered to be your own). No self-respecting artist will create something for you to take credit for as your own work. Generally speaking: you are purchasing the right to choose the work's subject matter, style, and the right to display it wherever you like (if not the original hard-copy itself).
