Geesh, you would think they would be smart enough not to hotlink to me at least. Idiots linked directly to my dragon avatar, that is how I found them.

What to do? What to do?

Especially liked the addition of this at the bottom of their pages.

Hi ops,

My name is Strolen, webmaster of http://www.strolen.com. Just enjoying http://syren.cc/rpg/oi/ and http://www.ffrp.org/users/outpost/ and http://s2.invisionfree.com/Outpost_Inn/index.php. It seems we have the same tastes in web design, although I am positive I am the only one that owns the copyrights for the graphics. It is one thing to steal a web design, it is a great way to learn, but to be identical just goes a little too far. I let my graphic artist know about the copyright infringement, she has all these neat custom forms made up by her lawyer that she sometimes likes to use. Will be up to her how far she takes it though.

I especially enjoyed your copyright statement on your pages

Did you really feel that was necessary considering? Oh well...



Happy IRCing.

C&D letter ahoy, cap'n!

If I don't hear back from the scoundrels by Fridayish I'll ring the phone number on the domain reg  :wink:  they get really nervous when you call them at home...

That contact address on the domain is the only one that didn't bounce as non-existant. Did your email actually go through to the syren.cc ones?

Silly buggers... they hotlinked "blank.gif" as well.

Whoa....
How did you know I sent an e-mail?
I was giving Strolen a Christmas present.

I haven't gotten any bounced messages yet, sometimes they get stuck in the system recycling for awhile before they get a full rejection though....

o strolen, high priest of the cult of the pencil and paper game, in spirit of this thread, may I use your dragon logo as a tattoo on myself?
The roleplaying games were never a danger.
Indeed, the only ones with real room to be
offended were pagans. As for me, I wish we druids could turn wood to gold. ;)

LOL :)

Big is probably the only way it would work, pretty intricate that would most likely bleed together over time.

Go to town!!

I'm having trouble blowing it up ... could you pm me a big version? (scale down is better than scale up)

I wish I could tell you where I found the original image. It was on a tatoo site, I want to say it was even a sticker of about double the size.

I will go through some stuff this weekend to see if I can find it when I saved it originally. Studying for a test on Friday so really can't spare the time as I will probably have to dig some to find it.
