Most of his latest thread got closed because he asks the same questions over and over again.

@  Bass X0 : (25 May 2016 - 04:12 PM)

why is he going to get banned?

@  tffan01 : (25 May 2016 - 04:09 PM)

I like Taco Bell. But I only get to have it maybe once a decade since there are no Taco bell locations here in Newfoundland

Brian Kilby was in our hearts the whole time.

@  Echowarrior : (24 May 2016 - 08:05 PM)

I'm definitely not Brian Kilby.

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 May 2016 - 06:04 PM)

Taco Bell has proven to me that god is truly dead.

@  Paladin : (24 May 2016 - 12:21 PM)

http://uproxx.com/life/taco-bell-fried-chicken-shell/ i hate this & also want to eat this.

@  Benbot : (24 May 2016 - 11:11 AM)

I'm familiar with him but I still don't get the joke.

@  Robowang : (24 May 2016 - 08:07 AM)

Aw, you ruined it.

@  tffan01 : (24 May 2016 - 07:58 AM)

@robowang, I would have laughed at the joke if I knew who is Brian Kilby

@  Benbot : (24 May 2016 - 07:48 AM)

Everyone quickly say something so it scrolls down

@  Robowang : (24 May 2016 - 07:48 AM)

I love this board. I'm still convinced you're all Brian Kilby.

@  tffan01 : (24 May 2016 - 07:47 AM)

beetleman, if you read this I'm not saying this as a fact, it's just a thought.

@  Robowang : (24 May 2016 - 07:42 AM)

*Beetleman logs on and reads this*

@  tffan01 : (24 May 2016 - 07:40 AM)

I think beetleman might have a mental disability of some sorts. I'm not saying he definitely has but if he really does, you guys should be a little kinder to him. That would also explain why he says he is a 19 year old but his parents are overprotective. I'm not saying he definitely has but it's a possibility. Or he's just a 8 year old that says he is an adult.

@  Touch My Thighs : (24 May 2016 - 05:00 AM)

No need to ban him, just remove his ability to post new topics. Problem solved.

@  Msol : (24 May 2016 - 01:01 AM)

So what's the over/under for when beetleman is banned?

@  Telly : (24 May 2016 - 12:26 AM)

is the christmas/holiday special in the latest mtmte trade? or atleast mtmte's segment of that comic

@  Plokatron : (23 May 2016 - 11:09 PM)

Robotic warriors give it their all! Fighting disguised till the victor stands tall!

@  TheMightyMol... : (23 May 2016 - 05:12 PM)

He tried to introduce himself once, but then he was compelled to kidnap himself and nobody's seen him since.

@  Paladin : (23 May 2016 - 04:53 PM)

wait, what about Candlejac

@  TheMightyMol... : (23 May 2016 - 04:45 PM)

All legends are true, except for the ones that aren't.

@  Foffy the Sheep : (23 May 2016 - 04:39 PM)

The Nightitme Secret Aardvark exists?! I though it was just a legend!

@  TheMightyMol... : (23 May 2016 - 04:28 PM)

Well, maybe. That depends on you, really. What you do behind closed doors is none of my business. I'm not the NSA.

@  Foffy the Sheep : (23 May 2016 - 04:24 PM)

Your nights shall be completely shame-free, however.

@  TheMightyMol... : (23 May 2016 - 04:16 PM)

Nope. You will bear the shame of this for all of your days.

@  Telly : (23 May 2016 - 04:00 PM)

can i delete this shout?

Powered Convoy pointed out to me today that my artwork is being used for TicoBot '08's Costa Rica's new TF Con without my permission.
Original image:

Ticobot image:

I emailed the person who provided the image over at the Energon Pub to please credit me for the imagery or to remove it. And to ask artists before using their stuff in the future.
I don't own Optimus Prime's likeness, technically Hasbro owns all imagery (including fanart of Optimus) so their is really no issue there.
And it's flattering to see my Classics OP be appreciated enough for a Con logo, but it would be nice to be asked before seeing it in use. icon-wildride.gif

The guy contacted me & said they had no idea it was my art & they are working on fixing it.
So were cool.
But I want the artists here to be aware this stuff happens, sometimes by big things like a Con, & it could be anywhere in the world... next time it could be you, so take notice of where your art is & where it maybe shouldn't be.

yeah free stuff should be sent your way, it sucks when people just use your stuff without asking; i mean personally anything i've done pro, i dont mind. Or if its like some fan art being made for a you tube video, again i dont mind.

Whats really annoying is stuff like here or with the Cougar comic where people are making money off your art but you aint seeing a dime....... *grumble grumble 13 months and STILL no paycheck*

Hi!

I'm from the Ticobot organization group.

Just want to make clear some things.

The person that draw our logo didn't tell us that he taked the Optimus Artwork from Internet, so we thought it was original.

Now we added credits to the image and we're using it with permission.



Ticobot is really a small convention and a non-profit event. We are not making money of it. The entrance fee (about US$2 an adult and US$1.5 a child) is charged by the place we're using (Museo de los ni?os) and we will not see a cent. Money from sponsors (only 2 will pay) is already spent in things needed for the event. We're just a group of fans that want to share our passion.

We are very sorry about this situation and we are going to be very careful in the future about using others' work without permission.

Have a nice day!
