Paid Content IS ALLOWED

Just to be perfectly clear. Process forums allow for and support artists looking to advertise their wares. Not everything has to be free. I look at it as a positive. People legitimately believe they can make some money for process-style content.

Can I afford to pay for most of it? No. But that's my problem. Artists deserve to be paid for their work. If it's not priced correctly or if the quality is not there, the market will dictate their success.

Consider: if you spent all that time and effort making something, it would be nice to get some sort of reward. Compliments are not enough in the real world.

If an artist makes something free, then obviously that is welcome but it is not something to be demanded.

Re: Paid Content IS ALLOWED

This seems like something that should be a pinned thread.

Re: Paid Content IS ALLOWED

It's important to support the people who want to provide paid content to our "community," but not everyone here is interested in purchasing something. This forum is also about hanging out and sharing the free stuff, and I'm sure there are plenty of people who'd like to know when a post is advertising something and when it isn't.

How about adding a marker or a tag to help differentiate one from the other?

Exactly, the thread that started all this started with "New Comic Released!" which implies "Here, take this." when it should have said "New Comic On Sale!"

I think it's reasonable to have paid content, as long as there's a tag on posts so that we know if we're going to run into any paygates.

Re: Paid Content IS ALLOWED

You might want to specify. Linking to paid content, or content creators showcasing their stuff is allowed.

Posting paid content is not.

Or am I mistaken in this?

Re: Paid Content IS ALLOWED

Posting paid content, so that nonpaying people can get access to the content, is not allowed.

Re: Paid Content IS ALLOWED

Strictly speaking as someone who used to frequent that scene and maintains contacts for the purpose of tracking illicit activity, /b/tards are the least of your worries.

Just keep doing what you're doing, and don't let the fact that cheap asshole ripoff artists exist dissuade you from your own fulfillment. I'm broke at the moment, but I can get satisfaction easily enough from the various boorus and dA when necessary, so there's no excuse for piracy.
