Those idiots just doesn't learned their lessons yet…

This thread is for discussing content creators/artists which is considered to be overprotective of some sort to their contents, like the ones who sends their stuff through private mails, private Discord servers, and much more. You're open to show any artists like this and to tell the reason why they could be such a big problem.


The fun never ends…

Notice that some artists have listed as DNP (Do Not Post), with some of them are one of the paywall and DRM artists? According to e621, only those artists are allowed to upload their own works, and other ones than the artist themselves aren't allowed to post stuff.

There's only one strong reason for this: they don't want their paid contents to be leaked.
Which is a shame that some obscure image-hosting sites already have those. For the sake of the contents and the site, I won't tell which sites has those stuffs…

And excuse me for my bad english, it's not my mother language.

That thread was a mess. Good thing is, with artist boy and RMB gone, we can finally have a productive conversation.

Question, if an artist says they're thinking about starting a Patreon, what can you say to make them reconsider?

No, anon. e621 are very popular as well, especially to the furries since most furry-themed contents go there. Diives, DACAD, B*tchdraichin, and many more.

I'm talking about other sites than that, mostly are booru sites, or sites with standalone codes/program/web engine.
I've already seen some, and like I said above, I won't say the site names for the sake of the contents and this site as well.

1. Not ALL people would be able to pay contents like that, especially peoples with hardly difficult reasons such as not having any jobs, living in a place where it's hard to earn money (just like me), and much more.

2. Regarding of Patreon's feature where it can invite you directly to the private server of the artist… Not all, I repeat, NOT ALL people have/use Discord. Especially if the tiers have Discord roles packed in. The roles would be useless to those who don't use or have Discord.

3. It all depends on how good your contents are. Some artists with lesser art quality out there tend to use Patreon right away to make quick bucks, even the fact that their art style are not good enough like those who has good art.

Those are as far as I know on how to make the creators reconsider.

And btw, who's artist boy and RMB?
Are those two peoples who creates the previous thread getting hotter or something?

 No.984

>>983
RMB was the guy that would make nonsensical posts and call every one "resident momma's basement". We have reason to believe he was one himself. And then there was artist boy who would make these long winded posts about just how much better he was than us. It was a mess.

Ahh my legacy lives on. Just to add to the conversation, I don't care that artists get a patreon, the problem is when the artists start "burning the bakery down to spite the bread thief." Basicly, punishing all their supporters just because a few leakers posted their art. Let me name a few, Pannekoeke, seferin, Danza. All artists deserve to make money but my god does it get fucking obnoxious when they go around and delete art, or throw dmca's into the void. Or just straight up go to DRM. Also OP. of this thread, you forgot to put primeleap behind the 2nd astronaut, I love the image work tho.

Hey there dude. Glad you could make it.

Correction: all artists that don't use copyrighted characters deserve money.

Also don't use patreon because it's a scummy thing to demand payment for something you did in your spare time.

Double correction
all artists deserve money when they make actual good artwork. But I have to correct you, their are good artists out their who don't sperg out over the leakers. Fluffkevlar is one of them. He's a fine example of not burning the bakery down. He knows he's big enough that leaking his art won't cause any profit drops. This makes him smart because he knows that by doing nothing this action in no way drives demand for *more people to pirate* his art up. However, this is the furry fandom, and even though some artists are good, its even rarer to find an artist that is good and smart at the same time. Look, the whole point of the originial DRM thread was to show that not everyone on the internet is Nice…punishing the classroom because somebody stole the chalk doesn't work in school and it sure as hell isn't going to work in the furry fandom…the random person is just going to keep stealing it. Point is, this is the intenet, people being disrespectful should be common sense by now, but we got dumbass artists who think sperging out on twitter will make their art exclusive again, or as if they're losing potential (keyword is potential) sales as they tweet. All I want is for this little known fact to be universally accepted so these butt hurt idiots go back to making art, people can go back to pirating said art and comissioning it, and the world is a happy place with no ear grating autistic screeching going on in the background.

Sorry for using the screenshot without your permits… I barely able to find a screenshot of the thread…

And, yeah, I forgot Primeleaf, my bad. I thought that service isn't used anymore…?

>>1029
Guess you're right. Instead of thinking about something right to take care of the problems (leakers and leaked stuffs, which are our handiwork), they instead straight up blaming all of their supporters and or making their payment and content availability more awful.

To be honest, one of my personal reason why I don't like paywall artists is that they would wait for a fucking month or so until they release their early access contents/exclusive versions of several stuffs they have.

I've been there before, and it's safe.
Basically, aside from no DNP shit, contents there are permanently stored, hence the name: "Permanent Booru". In other words, an archive site for furry stuffs and such, good or bad arts. The site's completely safe, but since it's a darknet site, the internet speed would be slow just like when you're using a VPN.

I wonder if the people from across these furry pirating boards like from here, U18chan, furry burro, could rally their communities together to go and fund and look for a talented programmer to crack the drm on primeleap. Its an investment, yes, But drm sights are funded by the select few, a dedicated hacker who has dabled in drm breaking could be funded to break drm of this commuities choosing.
>But ANONNN WHATS THE POINT OF PIRATING IF WE HAVE TO PAY!! RHEEEEEEEEEE
Hold your damn horses autists, how do you think primeleap was made? For free? To counter peeps who were funded you gotta put in a LOT of man hours and theirs nothing i can see that will motivate the take down of primeleap other then trying to find a programmer/hacker to break the site over his knee through funding. Basicly TLDR fight fire with fire…(and no dont foolishly throw money at someone who spouts computer rhetoric. Doesn't mean its the right info…) How ever my idea is very unlikely to happen as for obvious reasons. So basicly we're stuck…Bummer

 No.2652

Talking about Amyth, that premium paywall he has is pretty scummy. However, hopefully I can remedy some of that. I believe I saved most if not all of what his page had on YP (the HD tier stuff that is, so no lower tier SD/sketch variants). Should I upload the zips as an archive post on his kemono page or should I make a thread on u18 or is there another better option? What I have I think will just fit under kemono's file upload size limit. Once I do, anyone else is more than welcome to pitch in and fill in any gaps if they can.

As far as why Amyth is putting his older stuff behind a double paywall I think is because most if not all of it involves his ex-wife in a way (which he done dirty to, but I'm not here to discuss that).

 No.2699

Oh man not this thread again haha. I remember it was the most controversial thread in the history of YP (while I was there) and contained the most heated and violent text wars known to man, and some cameo appearances too.

>like the ones who sends their stuff through private mails, private Discord servers, and much more.


Going by the year or 2 I was on YP, thats basically atleast 40% of all Paytreon artists. Probably much, much higher now. It makes sense though. It IS THE single most effective way of stopping your art being scraped, so if you want to paywall your sh*t and milk the cash, you're gonna do it.

The funny thing is that even though YP had "shared files", hardly anyone ever used it, so it was more or less "the perfect DRM trick". It was so rare for people to use shared files that when people actually did (like that Blue Whale guy) they were hailed as heroes!

I've been pirating for so long, I try to give back when I can so no need to thank me. However, I do want to apologize ahead of time because I don't want to give y'all's hopes up in case if what I have isn't the complete archive of what Amyth has behind his double paywall. I will just say that it's what I've managed to grab from his YP page up until it closed. So if YP was missing it, I don't have it. Also if there were any solo male or m/m, I don't believe I saved any of that. Sorry, just not my preference. Lastly, it is possible I may have just straight up blinded a post on YP I would have otherwise downloaded, though unlikely since I tend to unhealthily triple check what I have against the leaked content for stuff I want. I have offline archives of artists that I like so I tend to get as much as I can. Going off what Amyth has on his FA page, and if most of those were double paywalled, I don't have a couple of his oldest pieces. You'll be able to tell once you download the archive I've provided though. And finally, one of his newest ones (furaffinity .net/view/36879113/), I only have the HD sketches of as I believe the final color version didn't make it to YP.

I made a u18 thread since it seems Kemono is down as of writing this. (u18chan .com/board/u18chan/fur/topic/1913335)

Its just sad to see an artist like Amyth just be like this when he was making enough money as is. Welp, thanks to you thats alot of vaulted content that is no longer worth anything. Thanks so much anon, I'll try and help keep the amyth thread on U-18chan alive so the archive can continually be updated. The fact that such talent is excluded away to simply not be shown off is baffling to me.

Heyo, same guy as >>2652 >>2784 >>2785

I feel there are a lot of artists that aren't nearly as insufferable, its just that a few sour apples that spoil the bunch. Though off the top of my head, another that stands out as a good example of how an artist should handle their art is DimWitDog. I believe ever since the start of her paytreon, and now since she moved to substar, she's never paywalled her final content. She even hosts her own personal art gallery website where you can download full res zips of each month's featured and quickie art packs. I think the only thing she keeps behind any paywall are perks of pledging to her (like art voting and wips/sketches) rather than hiding full art pieces.
Again, no need to thank me, just giving back when I can. Hopefully the thread, along with the other archive type threads on u18 can remain updated. It sucks to see them fade with less and less updates, like the fr95 and iskra threads, though they seem to be kinda picking back up.
Yea it's a bummer when artists hide away their art or worse yet, nuke their galleries. Just because you're unhappy with older artwork or even suffering a rough patch in your life doesn't mean you should make your veteran viewers suffer too.

i might sound rude and i'm sorry if i sound like that but there is something i have been curious about:
there is a common saying from many people "if you have the skill to do something really good don't do it for free"
and so many artist using patreon and something similiar because some of them actually need money and such, and i know from the thread seems like there is a trend some patreon artist trying prevent leak and such.
so the question is : is it really wrong for artist for using patreon and other similiar platform and also protecting leak?
i don't mean to judge or anything i'm also pirating and such since yiff.party
so i'm just really curious about people opinion about this matter

 No.2999

>>2991
Patreon was never supposed to be a paywall for porn makers, it was supposed to be a tip jar and modern RSS for normal people's hobbies. There is still plenty of people that use it like that.
Besides that, commissions are how artists have always made money, and commissioners typically would rather have their stuff shown to people than lock it away. On the contrary patreon incentivizes porn artists to paywall their content permanently. I've seen people straight up lock or delete their accounts on art sites and go 100% patreon because they think they will make more money like that.
When patreon eventually gets tired of all the DMCA complaints because lazy artists are using copyrighted characters, and they decide a sitewide ban of it, I think these artists will regret throwing their reputation away for easy money versus just doing commissioned artwork.

 No.3028

>>2999
fair enough, what you are saying is quiet right, originally patreon was indeed used a platform to gather support money and such and not a paywall.
But at the same time some of this artist maybe poor people that need some sort of stable income and sadly commision sometime is not enough.
But in all fairness the patron in patreon actually paying money each month for the artist, so of course under the normal rule of bussiness world : people that are paying need to be given special treatment to stay and continue donating.
After all if the paying patron and the public is just getting the same stuff with no bonus or special stuff for the patron, people will just went like this "what is the point to donate if i dont get a bonus or anything".
but of course for some people that understand donation system, they do it out of compassion.
but let's just be blunt people most of the time need incentive/motivation to donate to someone else.
So is that mean exclusive stuff is wrong thing to do? i'm not saying i'm justifying 100% paywall either.
what i mean is that public will get their own share while the patron get extra stuff,
is using such method is wrong?
once again this is just my opinion and i'm not one to judge considering i'm also a pirate in here.
i'm saying this just because of curiosty and want to see some different opinion is all
and i once again apologize if i sound rude and i am not justifying the artist that goes crazy paywall and DRM
i'm just neutral is all

I'm glad a number of artists have moved away from doing commissions because how heavily they limited their creative output because they were too busy catering the whims of a few to create much else. I much rather pay $5 a month to get a lot of content I want then pay $100+ for one picture or just hope those who paid them asked for something interesting.

My problem is artists either act like a business only when it suits them or take on terrible business practices. So you get terrible communication, ghosting, harsh responses to any type of criticism, and a shallow community. To elaborate on that last part by community I'm not talking about people or request or commission stuff.

I'm talking about spreading, talking about, and refining different ideas around aesthetics. Artists retreat so far into their walled gardens that their public presence disappears to the point it may seem like they just stopped.

Why I wouldn't mind spreading the works of the artists listed in this thread even though I'm not into them just as a big fuck you to people like them I'm unwilling to pay money out of principle to these type of fucks to do so.

 No.3060

>>3048
true i guess, what you say about commision it really is either you have some money to spare or someone else commision something you are also into.

i guess you're not wrong about that one, a lot of artist that sometime change to bad personality and such when they already amass some audiences.

for bad bussines practice i can't say much i guess the problem is, the artist is the one who runs the show. Although i admit it sometimes i hate it when artist sometime pull some crazy stunt DRM.

true that some artist just seems drops from the face of earth or something.

i guess another question is what kind of bussiness practice that should be used by artist then in platform like patreon?
i mean this website alone can pirate a lot of stuff beyond imagination sometimes, and because of that a lot of people mindset went like this "why should i pay if i can get stuff free from this website"
and if there is some leaker how artist should dealt with it then? i mean i heard some crazy stuff from other thread where there is artist that doxxing leaker and even as far shaming the leaker by calling the parents(i don't know if this is true or not) and of course if that is actually true that would be some crazy, i mean no need to destroy the leakers life
and how about balance between the public content and the exclusive content? after all public still need to get stuff for artist publicity and for new potentialy patron and exclusive content for those who actually donate

When it comes to business practices what is best for me may not be the best for an artist if they want to maximize profit. For example I hate creators putting their monthly content on gumroad to double dip (to see all their content you have to pay for a sub and pay multiple times to get their older content since its separated by month) but its great for them.

Leakers are the cost of doing business in a mostly frictionless environment. I think their impact is overblown though I have no hard evidence because despite all the moaning about sites like this many artist seem to have little problem raking in cash. Also artists have several advantages they can exploit like the power of fandom to keep them afloat.

When it comes to the balance between public content exclusive I prefer the early access model where they release their exclusive content much later because at least for me it serves as a form of advertisement and is something to help you judge if subscribing to them is worth it.

You can be almost guaranteed that 8/10 artists do it. Because basically, as an artist, you'd be stupid NOT to do external/private distro. Word travels fast, so as soon as "Artist 1" discovers his art is being leaked, then discover that ALL he has to do to COMPLETELY stop the leaks, is just "private distro", then he's gonna tell "Artist 2", and "Artist 2" tells all the other artists in his circles, on and on until the only people still posting 100% directly are those that "don't want to get money", or those that "don't care about being pirated".

If I was a popular artist and wanted to milk people every month, you can bet I'd do the same!

I have an artist friend who spends hours every weekend and a couple of days during the week streaming for his patreons on Discord. He holds down a real life job too and does all this to make ends meet. He doesn't do commissions mostly because he hasn't got the time. His lowest tier is $5 a month and that's to see all his patreon exclusive art. He doesn't mind people who subscribe once then cancel, and he tries to release a good amount of his art for free on his DA but keep patron exlclusive streamed art to give his patrons something exclusive. He does raffles, every patron gets at least one free request for a fully coloured and shaded pic when joining. He hopes to grow his patreon so he can do drawing full time and produce art, in addition to illustrated stories and provide more free content on his DA. However, he found all his work, including his archive leaked on kemono. It completely killed his motivation and made him feel taken advantage of. He literally slaves away trying to produce content for his contributors while trying to keep his DA active. It's very disheartening when I see his motivation and mood take a dip, especially when people who leak it proclaim to love his art and look forward to his work, but don't give a shit about the artist's actual wellbeing and life, and the effort he goes through to produce art. Sure, loads of people on Kemono like to generalise. 'artists are milking their supporters' 'pirating doesn't harm them' 'content creators are selfish' and all the other excuses people come up with to justify it, but it's just all a lie to make everyone here get a guilt-free kick out of taking someone's art, having no consideration for the artist, while being two-faced and talking about how much you love their content.

Just food for thought.

Seen plenty of obscure artists who censor their public artworks in the most "fuck you" way possible (Patron logos the same size as the nipples) and plenty of small artists with big egos who, if given the option, would vacuum the memory of their artwork from their patrons' brains after one viewing and try to charge them again.

>about leakers appear because frictionless environment care to explain this one?
Businesses that sell material goods have to deal with things like entry costs, regulations, distribution issues, shrinkage (the loss of inventory that can be attributed to factors such as employee theft, shoplifting, administrative error, vendor fraud, damage, etc), and obtaining materials. All those things create a certain amount of friction.

There is a far less friction when it comes to digital artists. Entry costs, regulation, and the cost to reproduce/distribute are extremely low. Because the cost to distribute is so low its easy for others to do so.

One of the many reasons I do not feel any sympathy for artists is they don't have to deal with things that businesses that sale material goods do like having to eat tangible losses from things such as product not selling (inventory or getting rid of something can be more expensive than people think) and things are so heavily weighted in their favor concern about piracy feels like a joke.

This guy >>4282 is right about artists being dumb for not doing external/private distro if they are that concerned about leaking or if only to better milk their followers. The "pay to pay" model on onlyfans became popular because it allows people to milk more out of their followers.

In the end it has caused me to dislike numerous creators so strongly I don't even want their work for free and dislike even giving them exposure that comes with sharing their stuff because it indirectly supports them.

this one is also interesting because you say there is barely any damage done to artist despite this place exist, any example or evidence to be shown as explanation?

and as for the power of fandom this one is a very stranger concept to me since i was never a part of any fandom i dont quite understand how fandom works to begin with, i mean if it's about a fans of actor/actress or music band i understand, but digital artist? is such thing possible? considering they are just someone who produce a product of a niche and hidden from public view

Neither those that believe piracy is killing artists or those like me who believe its effects are overblown to some degree have any hard evidence. So its mostly if not entirely speculation.

Seeing creators both big and small growing larger and larger despite all the piracy it makes me skeptical of how big of a negative effect it has.

When it comes to fandom it can be built around nearly anything. I've seen people have intense arguments about niche keyboards that they support. The core idea of the "1000 fans" theory (see https://kk.org/thetechnium/1000-true-fans/) is you don't need to make it big to make enough money to live off your work, all you need is a bunch of devoted fans.

Creators are able to make a decent living without even hitting 1000 subs because they have a large enough number of subs who will for the most part uncritically give them money. I know one creator who hasn't made a single post in a whole month with no update about what is going on and they still have the same amount of patreons.

i see so no one have hard evidence about negative effect of this place.

as for the 1000 fans theory it is a very interesting theory i dare say, the core idea of this theory is that any content creator trying to keep close all die hard fans that willing to follow unconditionally, as a mean to keep all the incoming money stable and reach certain target. This is very surprising theory, that i would have never guess it actually exist

i guess that is all for the curiosity that i have for now.

To me personally,It is annoying me more and more how many artists are handling their art and their fans. They don't know how it really shits me to see that some hide 90% of their stuff behind a paywall and they are pulling it out of you. And so they dare to be outraged when things are leaked to them? Fuck the hell out of them if that's the case.

Rich fans with enough income (or rich enough parents) will always pay, even when they could pirate. But poor fans who can't afford to spend $12+/m on ONE artist let alone ALL their faves will pirate. We wouldn't need to pirate if the artists didn't block us out, saying "fuck all you poor fans", but piracy is the option we have left, so thats what we're gonna do. I remember years back things were much better: Paywall sites weren't really a thing and artist made money from commissions. You could tell they were still making plenty of money too because commissions were expensive and slots were always taken (you had long waiting lists). Once sites like Paytreon became "the new way", piracy stepped in. Because it was invited!

I personally find it offensive that many artists who started from scratch, once they discovered patreon or fanbox, have literally completely abandoned their general fans and only release things for the "privileged". I'm not even going to pay $ 5 to see porn drawings that in the end I will not see again for a long time, because if I were only to follow 1 artist it would not be much problem, but let's see, let's add like 4 artists and it would not be $ 5 now 20 $.

I'm an artist who is just beginning and I would never treat my public like that, because I insist, I find it rude to see people who started like me and now they start screaming and DMCA if they filter their art, as if those assholes felt that not even the ground they walk on deserves them. I know many people like that and it only gives me reasons to improve and one day have the opportunity to see that it is not necessary to treat your audience like shit to earn money and have followers.

Seems like a good few artists are switching to paysites that "aren't scrapable" (?) now too. EG Gumroad and another one, I forgot the name. Some of these artists are greedy as hell too. The same artist will split his content across 2-3 different subscription paysites (to cheekily rake in 2-3x extra cash). Some of them "cleverly" use different names to try and hide their greed campaigns (EG Vkorg AKA Ganto18, same guy ffs…) but some of them are so full of it they just use the same name (EG BySpoon).

I don't understand why you can't just click "gallery" and then it shows me JUST the pics by the artist who's Twitter I'm actually on; and not all his artist friends and similar artists all jumbled together… I hate Twitter lol.

I'm bringing this into attention since although this new method is simple, it can be a bit difficult for us to get posts afterwards.

So, to make things short. According to the thread link above, some artists (who probably already know about kemono.party) has a new method of combatting kemono's scrapper, by putting the download link(s) of their contents in the comments.
This can be a big difficulty, since until now, kemono still doesn't have any features to import comments from a post, neither automatically and or manually.

Here hoping the admins and mods would do something about this right away.

Yea this will need to be addressed sooner or later because give it time, and you can bet your sexy arse that every shark-artist and their cousin will be following suit (as logic would dictate!).

Only "solution" I can think of ATM is for the leaker (the guy importing the posts) to manually DL the content from the comment, then import via "FILE UPLOAD". If its a filehost with a password, and the PW is in comments, I guess all we can do ATM is drop a link to the archive in the "archive thread" and put PW underneath it.

Minimum wage in UK (enough to "only just" cover "the cost of living", IE "by yourself") is just over a grand a month, and thats before tax. So to earn the same money from monthly Paytreon dole, you'd have to be popular as fuck.

If you're getting less than £1,000 p/m on Paytreon, then good luck "paying the bills, buying food & clothes, paying rent etc". Its not gonna happen since you can't "properly" live on much less. If you live in the family home and your only expenses are your own luxuries, then yea you could be rolling in it, but living alone or with a partner &/or kid to support (like a lot of these artists seem to imply)?

They have more reasons than that, though.
A lot of artists don't want their stuff on e621 because they think that's where art "thieves" get stuff.
They think this because most social media accounts and subreddits dedicated almost entirely to reposting furry art source back almost always to the e621 link.
Which is stupid, because what actually happens is that they most likely found the stuff elsewhere and only linked e621 because that's the place where you're more likely to find info -like who the author is- on any furry picture. And because if the social media account of the artist is for whatever reason unavailable, people can still find the e621 post. And in the e621 post, they'll find the link to the real source anyway.
Another reason is that they don't want e621 to "steal" their precious clout (in the same way they think that posting the picture to r/yiff is art theft). Because they have completely confused social media high scores with actual career success. These people are also the ones who get pissy when someone more popular than them QRTs their post or get mad at other artists for "working for free" or "underpricing" their commissions; or who make transformative works of someone else's IP without permission, but then yell kys to people doing transformative work of their own fanart by using it for RPing or whatever (and then they still complain when hasbro or gamefreak DMCA's them).
Overall, it does seem that people on the DNP are just really fragile and egocentric and have fallen in love with the system that oppresses them.
