Anyone can sell stolen artwork on RedBubble. No proof of copyright holder required. But if you see that your art is being sold, you have to prove that it’s your art. What a broken system. The RedBubble team is as useless as you’d expect in dealing with these matters.
And again, user Mdesign is an art thief, currently selling art stolen from DeviantArt user Equestria-Election. I’ve been trying for over a year to get RedBubble to see the obvious.
Congratulations, LittleWhiteWolf86, you’re number 600 in my people jar collection! And now we commence the sacred ritual of the Placing of the Jar, placing your jar on the mantel and removing DiscordantlyDrawings. By sacrifice. Blood sacrifice. His blood. As he shatters to the floor. Oh look, his tumblr is gone for some reason. Hmm… Well, pay no attention. I’m sure that’s not a bad omen of things to come. Happy jar day!

Nothing else follows.
Notes: The record follows the format of Riker’s record from the TNG episode, “Future Imperfect.” I used what few 24th/25th-century awards from the shows and compared their order of importance to modern military awards. The in-game stardate system only records when you play the game, so I had to adjust the timescale back a couple of years to make it more realistic. I used the 2009 film version’s stardate system of the Earth year followed by the Gregorian calendar date. I figure that stardates are only used to calculate each ship’s events relative to Earth anyway, and it would make sense for Starfleet to use an Earth-based date system for its records. The dates shown are when the paperwork was done, not necessarily when the events occurred.
