Welcome to Gaia! ::

Question: Dose that mean that people are intittled to sell dream avies made by Tek-Tek by making them in the way people request then sell them, Or is that not prohibited??
I had a minishop that was deleted because it somehow violated these rules. Yet, I didn't really break those rules. I wasn't selling those images. I was provided an example of my edditing skills. They were not for sale, they were for an example and nothing more.
question:

What if I use images only for a pastime? Consider, saying I make sigs for myself and others only for a hobby. I make them but for free, not to intenionally earn gold, but because it just grew to be a hobby of mine to do them...

(example is my sig of a manga version of Kairi from Kingdom Hearts 1 I got from the internet)

Is that considered as rule breaking? sad

Then you need to specifically state that these are merely samples of ones you've done for free, but then state that anything you're commisioned to do will be with stock art and not someone else's.

Nope. It's only breaking the rules if you sell them. You can give them away without problem.
I want to open a theme "shop" as a hobby.
I'd make the themes for free, but encourage donations.

Would that be okay?

Um say if you broke one of the rules how long would your account be banned for if it was a frist time thing?
My Question is... If people aren't using real money just "Gaia gold" Why is it that the copy right is in place?

That's true, I understand if there art belongs to someone who goes on gaia, but pictures on google and things like that. Were not stealing were just using!
I get that sprites made by others aren't allowed..

But what about edited sprites? Like an edited Megaman sprite?

Actually, it's still illegal. Fan art is technically illegal. No one cares much about it usually, though. (Not trying to say the rules set in this topic are stupid or anything, not by any means.)
