We have had some issues with people and even other websites using imagery from this site without asking for permission from the copyright owners. Please don't do this. The people who created this imagery have spent a lot of time and effort making the Waaagh unique. In particular:

- the artwork at the top of Waaagh website and at the top of these forums was created by Paul 'Nightserpent' Carrick, and he asserts copyright over that artwork, and

- all of the Ork-themed emoticons, buttons, glyphs and graphics were created by Tim 'Grimteef' Wollweber, and he asserts copyright over them.

They take a very serious view of any unauthorised use of their work. If you see any of this imagery being used anywhere else, please report it to the HQ for action.

Thanks

Da Management

Have to crack down on those gitz! I would just like to take this opportunity to thank all the nobs as you guys have really made this site great, especially all the reorganization thats been going on lately. I think that the 'fluff' that goes into this forum is part of what really makes it feel like a 'komoonitee'. Especially this glyph: :choppa that makes me smile every time! Good lookin' out bosses! :cheers

And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who attempt to poison and destroy my brothers. And you will know my name is The Lord when I lay my vengeance upon thee!"

I agree wholeheartedly with this. Man up and give credit where credit is due - some people have put much more effort than they should have or needed to in making The-Waaagh such an awesome site - pleae give them thier due and not steal from them. Also, along the same lines, if you see Rotgut da Brewboss making some beer please remind him that he owes CannibalBob a pint...

I do believe I've been usin' the emoticons periodically on The Warforge, but if it's an issue I will start diggin' through my old posts on there and remove them where they crop up.

This really is a great site & the hard work of all those who slave away to make it so is genuinely appreciated.

Just for clarification, can we use these for things like MSN and other instant messaging services if we give proper acreditation?

please note, I am not speaking directly for either of the two artists. In the past, both have stated something to the effect that they did not wish to dilute this site's unique style by granting permissions for other uses of the aforementioned artwork.

In any case, the smart thing to do, is do not use these works in any way, until you have direct permission from the artists who created them. the internet makes it easy to steal from people, but that doesn't make it legal or ethical.

I'd definitely get permission from a copyright owner before using their intellectual property. A commonly perpetuated (and somewhat dangerous myth) is that everything on the internet is free and public domain. Without permission, it qualifies as theft. I'm not saying this to just be a hard-ass, I'm just sharing friendly advice to help protect my fellow greenskinz. :yes

As another artist I totally agree with this sentiment. My style, my living, my future... everything is hinged around my art and abilities... if someone takes and uses (i.e. bastardizes) my work without acknowledgement, I in-turn lose credibility. Likewise people taking images and claiming as their own works is a terrible shame, as it puts any artist's portfolio in question. The flavor of this site is one of the things that helped me become so immersed in Orks. The art is a large factor in that and I appreciate the effort that went into that.

We see a culture that is strong and despise it as crude.

While it is extremely easy to use images from the internet, without permission from the copyright owner you can be charged (royalties or sommat like that). Its not cheap, lots and lots of teef.

Yeah, artists work has auto copyright that lasts for their life time +7- years XD

I think the Waagh and the PapaNurgle forums should have smiley wars! I make the smilies for Papanurgle.. and whatdoya know.. I'm called Tim too.. creepy.

So I take you're Ork smileys, and waggle our Nurgle Bum smiley in your faces as a form of challenge! ;)
