Hello! I'm pretty new hear and still trying to get a hang of this place. Which is why I'm asking this question  here in the help section. I asked another member, but they directed me here, so I'm hoping someone will know the answer to it.

In the art's, music, and media section of this site, it say's

Quote
2) Derivative works must contain a prominent link to the original image or artwork in the post they are displayed, along with the name of the original artist. Ask if you do not know, someone will. First violations will be castrated. Second will be a permanent ban. We will not tolerate plagiarism, nor risk people coming to false conclusions about the original author of a work. This post was apparently not sufficiently clear for some reason.

Would this include TG Captions? That's where you take an image of a celebrity, porn star, model, or a drawing and craft a story or layout to accompany it. It's something I do outside of role playing as a hobby and have been doing it for a good while on some other forums. I'm just not sure if it's ok to do here, since most of the time I don't know remember where I got the picture from.

Any original artwork of another person must be credited to that person as they are the owner of that image.  Changing another artist's work without giving them credit is in effect theft which is why we are so strict.

Works of your own created from online photographs are allowed since we do not permit members to advertise their artwork for sale.  If you have a link to the original image you can post it with your own representation of the image. 

I hope this answers your question.
