Right it has come to my attention that many of you are using Sprites such as our Diamond & Pearl Sprites or pictures from places like PokeSho for your Trainer Card shops and not letting people know thus having people have their sigs deleted for having stolen artwork

Could you please make sure people state this in their sigs or to save effort put it int he trainer card itself like in the bottom right

Thank you

well good rule there Serebii......... i don't like using the DP sprites since they were made by Coronis.. and some people seem to use them without saying who made the DP sprites...... =P

Since it has been brought to my attention that lines of text detract from the sig, I shall personally make a DP Sprite seal crediting us and a PokeSho seal so that you can just put them in an empty corner of the Trainer Card to save all this problem

22nd September 2005, 7:05 PM
Ya thats the best thing to do. I mean i using the stuff from hear with the TC i make and this way i can make it so they need to state it in thear sigs.

22nd September 2005, 8:33 PM
O.o really O.o so it┤s better I continue use this site sprites, because there are people that don┤t give me the credit, imagine for pokesho...

22nd September 2005, 11:04 PM
Ahhh, so thaats why my trainer card kept get deleting- I gave credit to Jolteon^..^ but not poesho.

Nice rule there serebii!

Nice rule, Joe. I'm glad that we'll soon be able to put little images in the corner so we don't waste sig length for it. ^_^ Good thinking!

Yup, Thats a good rule Joe. The little stamps don't really bother me but an awesome idea all the same.

I try to avoid using other sites sprites but on my trading card thread I put 'credit to pokesho.com for the sprite' on every packet. Also on my forum I have even put 'pics by pokesho.com' in the banner because I used their may, drew, red and green pics.

This is a good rule, I hate thieves Č.Č

This is a grand rule.
I would use the DP sprites Coronis made when I'd make an evolution for someone in my request thread, but I always told people to give Coronis credit for the sprites he made.

So although I never asked Coronis if I could use those sprites for the evolutions, I told people to give him credit for those sprites. Is what I did wrong?

Ellie
5th October 2005, 10:27 PM
Good idea making a sticky, Joe, but I would suggest making a similar one in the Fan Sprites forum about using them in mixes. Almost every day, I see a new person making a sprite topic, and they've used one of Coronis's sprites in a mix. I usually tell them if I see them, but I think some people think those sprites come from a game or something. I just think it would help if there was a sticky there, too.

When I did make trainer cards I refused to use Pokesho or DP sprites because in my mind that's stealing.

how do you put trainer cards etc in your sig

Hero of legend
18th October 2005, 2:15 PM
how do you put trainer cards etc in your sig

First you copy the link of the trainer card or any other picture, then you go to edit signature, then you click on the small yellowish box icon and paste your link there!

6th November 2005, 5:02 PM
I must say, that is a rule that is really important. Thank GOD there aren't going to be any more people getting their sigs deleted for not giving credit to Pokesho etc.

Well you don't need to give credit to something not actually made by them. Those sprites where ripped. o.O The camper comes from the game. -_-;

Not advertising or nothin' but you should see all the people using your Pokedex sprites on pokecommunity.com. It's crazy. No credit to coronis for the D/P sprites.

MetalMario
17th March 2006, 8:41 AM
The "PokÚdex sprites" are copyright Nintendo/Game Freak. Most people pull sprites from http://www.pokemonelite2000.com/, anyway, and, as far as I know, that's authorized. What you say about Coronis's sprites is correct, but that's far from isolated to PC.

Edit: Elabourating a little more: I believe that the use of the official sprites from the games qualifies as fair use, since they're being used to represent game progress and such. Either way, it's in Nintendo's court, but if Nintendo were to pursue individuals for using their art in derivative works (things such as trainer cards, mixes, etc.), the entire spriting scene would unravel.

How many Trainer Cards is the limit in a signature ?

Ellie
24th May 2006, 4:39 AM
Depends on the size. For the normal size, like the ones you have, you can only have two, since banners have a minimun 2:1 width-to-height ratio.

I believe it should be okay. Others have done the same thing and didn't get in trouble.

Savage X
6th July 2006, 8:33 PM
I thought Serebii had a rule of not using it? Or does he mean you just can't use the 387+ Pokemon, and you can still use the old 1-386 Pokemon's new sprites?

Luna Mew
10th July 2006, 8:01 PM
So... we can't use the Diamond/Pearl Pokemon in Trainer Cards? How about other things... like for example... Soccer Pokemon... or re-colors?

D-Man
10th July 2006, 8:15 PM
^you can use the dp sprites, just give credit to whoever made them when using

It's better to take the safe route and just give credit anyway if nothing is stated, but pe2k doesn't go after people who don't give credit. Besides, it's impossible to tell who ripped the sprites unless they're watermarked, and the person could have ripped it themself.

14th August 2006, 3:42 AM
I feel kind of stupid for asking this, but I don't really understand the rule. I make sprite fusions, re-colors, and trainer cards and sometimes people ask for D/P sprites. Does this new rule mean that I can't use diamond pearl sprites at all? not that I have any access to them anyway, but is that what it means?

It means you can use the D/P sprites, but only if you give credit to Serebii.net.


I need a trainer card

This isn't a request thread.

On the matter of the icons, I made a couple... I'm not so sure about the Serebii.net one though.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v434/Kinrah/icons.png

(And if you do decide to use these, don't copy the text, that's just so you know which is which, if it wasn't obvious)

If you don't know what the first icon is, go work up on your Pokemon some more. The Pokesho icon is from the Pokesho logo. All you'd need to do is stick them in an open corner, say, the top left. Or right next to the Pokemon.
