I am dumb and posted in the subforum specifically about the comics before posting here.

I am sorry. Sad


It's not a requirement! Post anywhere you want. <|:3

No, you're a terrible person and should die!

Well then, if there's no requirement to have one's first post here, I shall duly file it somewhere else.

...oh damn.

And now I've gotthat out of the way, I have a question about Avatars. That's not the normal one about avatars.

I'd love to use a Sinfest image as an avatar, but... if that involves cutting it, pasting it, saving it, uploading it somewhere else and then pointing this place at the URL... does that conflict with the "No duplication, reproduction, or reprinting of Sinfest strips and/or related characters allowed without written permission from the author/publisher." thing on the bottom of the webcomic page?

And can we use that image as an avatar elsewhere, cheerily pointing people back to this place as the source?

I think a long as you're not profiting from it, I don't think Tat has much issue with it. There's a bunch of people, particularly in the Sinfest subforum, who have caps from various Sinfest strips as their avatars. Some have added color to b & w pics, some have made the into animated .gifs. Also, considering the sheer number of results a google image search for "sinfest avatars" produces, it's probably not a huge deal.

Also, you could always try emailing Tat.

things that are definitely not ok without permission:
* including Sinfest strips in your newspaper
* wrapping the archives up into a .cbr file and selling it to idiots
* distributing a zine of your favorite Sinfest strips
* mirroring the site's content on your money-grubbing watermark-adding idiotic-commenting shitfest of a website (like 9gag or funnyjunk)

things that are probably ok:
* not-for-profit derivative fanarts
* avatars
* saving a particular strip to your personal computer
* coloring a strip and posting it in the comic subforum
* buying the books

Shiny, I'll go with this then, rather than bothering the exceedingly talented artist via e-mail.

Lots of other people use his art for avatars, and also do some fan-art. Tat hasn't reached down from the heavens to stop it, so it's reasonable to think he allows it.

Tidings of joy and welcome.

Also, an obligatory 'go fuck yourself', afterall, masturbation IS good for you.
