I think it’s okay. Reblogging these gifs doesn’t harm DWA, only the original hackers/downloaders did harm to the company. And maybe buy the dvd (if you can)
i think you shold go ahead if you want. and i hope you relax about school~
As long as you try your best I’m sure you’ll do fine, and you do what you’ve gotta do! As for the whole new fandom drama, I don’t agree with the whole ‘don’t make gifs’ off of these pirated videos and there’s a recent post on my blog about it.
It’s a touchy subject right now but I honestly feel like it does no real harm. It’s a matter of personal preference really but if you like the gifsets reblog them! They really are a work of art!
I really need to stop worry about school (but it’s hard when the teachers say how hard it will be to pass all the exams).
Yeah… Even if I won’t reblog these gifsets it won’t change anything.
I’m gonna tag all reblogged posts as “httyd2 torrent” so people can blacklist this sutff. And of course I will buy the dvd (but I have no idea when I will be able to buy it because I don’t know when it will be released in Poland).
Not everyone in the HTTYD fandom agreed to that, it was only really a core group of fans who decided to avoid posting gifs until the DVD gets released in November (just like it was only a core group of fans who kept their blogs spoiler free until mid-August). The majority of fans are casual fans who don’t get involved much with the dedicated blogs, so they didn’t agree to anything, they probably don’t even know how much of a stir this is causing to the people who really care about it. It’s ok to unfollow people for whatever reason, but it’s depressing to see people getting hate just because they reblog/don’t reblog pirated gifs. :(
Thank you Serp.
This is like that thing where people were all “We agreed not to talk about HTTYD2 spoilers until after the movie was released in every country”
And… no. No we didn’t all agree to it. It’s groups of friends making pacts, like in this situation.
Sorry, I just saw this now and figured now’s my time to tell my followers my stance on whatever forced drama is happening in the fandom this week:
No need to get up being assholes to anybody. Don’t shame people for reblogging pirated gifs and don’t bother sending hate to people who are very against it.
The argument “It’s only a month until the DVD” can work in both directions.
