Teen Titans Graphic Theft
Hey guys, it's FocusedShadow from the TitansGo.net forums speaking.
In our first example, it looks like she took this avatar made by sociologique, changed the file type, added text, then claimed to have made it from scratch herself. The other stolen file, thbrokenl.gif, was definitely made by another user. I've seen it around the forum long before she joined, and she took it without crediting or making any changes to it. Since I already found who made the first one, anyone who knows where thbrokenl.gif came from can come and say so.
[EDIT: Okay, so I've discovered the person who did the artwork on the third avatar she uploaded. Apparently the artist is a TGN member named RobynStarling. RobynStarling also happens to be the culprit's older sister (and has the exact same speaking style as the thief), so I'm not 100% sure if the claim is true, but I think for now it's safe to say we probably found the original artist. -FocusedShadow]
I'm sending the user a private message through the forums right now to see if I can get my point across to her.
Just thought I'd give you guys a heads-up, because internet thieves are a bunch of goobers.
