Hmm, well I can start with this: The staff page of our site
, Ranmabooks.com. That’s me, 2nd one down. I can’t say I ever used
the site-based email address though. I already had one and didn’t really want another. My email for all anime/hentai/non-work related internet matters has been email@example.com
since… well, since there was a “hotmail”. :P AFAIK, I am the only “Hinoron” on the Internet. If another has popped up, then I’m certainly the oldest. :P I use the same avatar everywhere (sourced from one of our own comics, in fact) so there’s that consistancy.
I’m not certain who reported these as “stolen” but I strongly doubt it was any of our staff (whose names are also on the above-linked list). While we’ve split up the work, we’re all quite on board with the selective sharing of some of our content, and they certainly know my name.
RE Userlinks: the original images are behind our password wall, so I obviously can’t link those
. What we’ve begun doing in the last year to try and encourage more visitors is designate some of our content as approved for sharing, and post them in public galleries. Images we’ve approved to be shared freely are marked with this rather self-evident logo:
Basically if the relatively smaller % of images we’ve produced that we’ve distinguished by this mark are widely distributed, we’re not only cool with that, we’re happy to get more eyes on our work (WITH our name and site address included of course, so that people who’d like to see what else we’ve done can find us easily).
Several members of our stafflist are taking charge of the “sharing projects”/social media campaign/free advertising. Other platforms that I’m personally taking charge of are:
– e-hentai.org image gallery
(which contains a couple MLP crossover images of ours also, if not so many as I shared here at Derpibooru)
– pinup videos on sites like Pornhub and Xvideo.com
–…and, I’d thought, perhaps Derpibooru as well… at least for our modest collection of MLP crossover images. We’ve got quite a few MLP fans over at our Ranma 1/2 site, for whatever reason. They’ve commissioned more than a few over the years. One of whom made the request of me to officially share his commission here, on your site (which I had admittedly not heard of, being a casual MLP fan at best; cross-site-sharing works in BOTH our interests! ;) ). I approved, and decided if we were going to share ONE of our crossover pinups here, why not all of them, to make a more significant contribution! If we make more MLP crossovers (which a presence on your site would only encourage, I should think) I’ll add them here as well once they’re approved for sharing. At minimum, I can promise a very high art standard. All our art teams are paid professionals.
So… I could certainly link one or two of the sharable-approved MLP images we’ve also posted to the e-hentai.org gallery (not all the MLP ones I shared here are there though) but that’s technically not our
site, is it? We DID however, have similar problems creating a Shareable-approved gallery there at first, what with them having respected our DNP and takedown requests for a decade prior (pirates seem to love us… especially our full-length and colour comics. >.> ) Few UGC sites are really prepared to deal with “we’re willing to share these
, but not EVERYTHING we’ve ever drawn” it seems. Kind of a new idea?
Well, we’ve worked it out with them and haven’t had any issues with the Shareable gallery since, so that’s a form of 3rd-party vetting, at least.
Any of this helping validate me? Would you like some emails confirming my identity from other members of our staff, from the specific email addresses listed on our staff page?
