Small announcement  
I just dodged a bullet with dropbox. I got a notification that all my shared and public links were banned due to excceeded bandwidth limit /o\

Right now I was able to have the ban lifted, so all should be back to normal. I did a bit of reading and it turns out the daily limit is 200GB!!! No amount of art I have posted here could ever generate that much traffic in a day. For this reason I believe it's related to SS76. Some asshole must have taken my link and posted it on FB or tumblr or whatnot /o\

I really don't want a repeat of that. Dropbox is my fandom central, I keep all my stuff there and I need it fully functional. For this reason I have decided that I'm gonna be f-locking all my posts with screencaps. If you're on my flist, nothing's gonna change for you. If you know me but are not on my flist, just send me a message and you'll have access to all the caps in no time :D

Thanks for your understanding ♥

Guess I am not on your list, but I like to be...

I just added you :)

Sorry about this, but I have no other choice :)

Thank you for adding me.

Wow, that's gotta be rough. Good that you figured it out. Is there any way you can track exactly where the traffic is coming from?

PS - thanks for continuing to do all your lovely screencaps.

Unfortunately, dropbox doesn't provide any logs to see which file exactly generated all the traffic. But even if they did, if someone posted my link on FB or tumblr, there's no way to track it. There's a gazillion of Matt Bomer FBs and tumblrs, all it takes is for one to post it and it spreads like World War Z /o\

That's a good idea, because I am so not a fan of facebook anymore. Those communitys steal wherever they can and sometimes I wonder where all those pics come from.

You need to protect your stuff, it's too special.

The link either landed on FB or tumblr and once that happens, it's impossible to control it.

But it's basic decency to at least reupload the stuff to your own account before posting any links. Unfortunately, Internet is full of trolls. Hopefully f-locking the files will take care of the problem. I'm mostly posting art here and that will remain open.

People really don't think sometimes! Here's hoping that f-locking them cures the problem. *hugs*

I have no doubt that it will :D And it's not like I'm posting caps all the time, so it's not gonna affect my LJ that much.

But yeah, dealing with people like that requires more extreme measures. I've dealt with that sort before and it's like preaching to a wall.

Thanks for adding me! <> By the way, does it affect your dropbox when I make a download of any of your works?? Anyway, I hope it works, we need your works! <<>>
kanarek13kanarek13 on September 28th, 2014 11:01 pm (UTC)
No, downloading art doesn't affect it, my entire dropbox is less than 200 GB and only franction of it is available to people. Art files are 5MBs on average so you would have to download it a gazillion of times :)

Plus, when you open my post, the picture needs to load anyway for you to be able to see it, so saving it doesn't make any difference :)

I am mostly a lurker... but I love seeing your work. And I am not very conversant in getting around in LJ either. Is it possible to be added to the list to make it accessible for viewing for me?

Thank you for all the time and creativity you put into these pieces, the results are beautiful and emotionally connected to both the fics they illustrate, and to the characters "voices".

Re: please!
Hi :)

Thank you for the lovely comment. However, the only way I can give access to f-locked posts is only when someone has an LJ account.

I'm not gonna be f-locking my art, just the screencaps because these files are usually large and it's what caused the epic fail two days ago. It's never happened before so either it was someone knew who stumbled upon my LJ or maybe someone was just looking for SS76 stuff. Either way, better to be safe than sorry.

If you are interested in screencaps, we can work something out, like personalized protected link via private message or even twitter.

I'm mostly a lurker in LJ fandom, but I'd love to see you caps! Can you please add me? Thank you!
(And your art is really amazing :))
kanarek13kanarek13 on January 27th, 2015 12:46 pm (UTC)
Hi :D And yeah, sure :D *runs off to friend*

Thank you :D

I'm currently working on the first half of s1 again, two eps down, 5 to go. I really should make that caps masterlist, hehe :D

Thank you very much!
Masterlist would be great, yeah:)
