Play Nice

My explanation of what you need to do to "license" my skins pretty much sucks--especially where I try to explain how to "credit me without mentioning me" (which almost seems like some kind of cruel twisted fairytale riddle). It's confusing, and any understandable aspects of my clarification are still widely left to personal interpretation, which sometimes cause the more vigilant to make accusations of misuse or theft against those less so. This is really the last thing I want happening. I'm not going to try and explain this any more (lest I weave any more self-negating zen-like aphorisms). So, as simply put as I can say:
Please use my skins and PSDs as you see fit--for monetary, artistic, or intellectual benefit of yourself or others. I ask for nothing in return.

Finally, I can reply...Eloh, you have done a wonderful thing releasing those skins (oh and the comment issue was me, not you...silly lost passwords) and I thank you. It sorta forced me to learn a new program that I had been dragging my feet over for months on end. I'm still not the greatest at it, but if I didn't have your files and then muddle through the photoshop skin Tutorial that Olila is making for photoshop, I never would have bothered.

And you shouldn't have had to explain this a zillion times. People just get bugs up their butts sometimes, latch onto a "cause" and go nuts thinking they are doing favors because it's what they think, believe or feel is right.

I'm using your skins as a base for a "hood skin".. So that I don't have a noob skin under my latex hood. I'm including the skin free with a product I am releasing.. but thanks to this final, simple clarification, I will probably be selling the Hood-skin package as well.

I understood what it was that you were doing when you put these out.. and I appreciated it, but I've been really hesitant to proceed with using them because of the horror stories I have heard from people who have suffered at the hands of vigilantes.

This post finally, really clarifies what's allowed.

Thank you for your gift to the community.. and thank you for this post.

Thank you for sharing your work with no conditions.
I have been trying to learn how to do this for my own personal use.
I am very touched by your generosity.
Thank you for sharing this.
I am off to study your work.
If you have chance do you have any tips for male bodies?

I plan on using a modded version of your skins in a free newbie package in my shop. I have learned so much from your skins. You are without a doubt one of the kindest, generous artist/creators in SL, and it's peeps like you that make it worth playing. Thanks for the talent and the spirit in which you gift us your hard work.
