Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@prti I've never understood why people do this. What does it say about your abilities as a blogger to create content if that content is based on the theft of information from BT and other sources.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@trishavt I know, right? I don't mind people finding info from BT or other sources but the least that person could've done is contribute to the forum. For 2 years she could've shared reviews, posted a good deal, or even just "heart-ed" more than 1 comment. She came back every year to get info about the Sephora birthday gift. I'm pretty sure if someone didn't call her out, she would've just come back again at the end of 2018. Don't get me wrong, I'm open to newcomers on BT but I just don't like people who take advantage of others. You can't just leech off of other people. It's give and take. Not give or take. Smiley Frustrated 

Spoiler
BTW, I just stalked her blog (because I'm petty just like that). She even watermarked a photo that was posted on BT. Sure, she did credit the users who posted the images. However, why would you watermark a photo you didn't actually take?

 

Sorry for the rant and sorry if I went overboard. It really bugs me and I'm feeling so petty today LOL.

Spoiler
@prti , @veronika23 who is she/are they? I know of these things going on, but am so oblivious of who actually are these low life bleeps as I don't really read/follow blogs...

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@lyravega PM'd you Smiley Happy I don't read blogs either but that person triggered me to make this post lol

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

You've brought up a lot of good points @prti and I would not consider your comments to be a rant because they are legitimate concerns.

 

When a person comes to BT or any other forum and takes information there is a sense of "loss" because the people that work hard to maintain this forum feel someone has taken advantage of their work. People put varying degrees of time, energy and thought into every post on BT. Thats why giving credit where due is a sign of respect for those that post on BT.

 

Also, not contributing shows there is no desire to participate in the forum other than to take and re-blog information from BT. This goes against the sense of community that BT is known for fostering.

 

I'll end on a positive note. Whatever information bloggers steal is not as important as the community we have on BT. That's something special you cant find on a blog. All the people that post honest reviews, swatches, product release information and tons of other information blow all the other beauty blogs out of the water.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@trishavt I wholeheartedly agree with you on your last paragraph. I love to hang out on BT because people are so nice and helpful. I get to see swatches, read genuine reviews (glad I didn't join the Too Faced white chocolate chip palette hype Smiley Tongue), enjoy some memes (Smiley Very Happy), and get updated on promos and new releases. I am thankful for all the people who have made contributions to BT Smiley Happy

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@prti  It's ok. I understand your frustrations... I have similar ones and keep biting my tongue because you know... yeah I'm gonna leave that as is too LOL Smiley Very Happy

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@veronika23 LOL my self-deprecating amusement didn't come across properly in the meme.

*challenge accepted*

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@Insomniacmuffin  no worries I get it Smiley Wink

 

 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@prti I 99.999% agree..

 

I just want to say about pics though, because this has happened to me as a frequenter pic/meme uploader person.. I get mine off google images, so if someone else did the same and uploaded it to a thread I didnt see - I will have no idea and therefore cannot 'credit' the pic to them. And once they uploaded it to BT, even if it's their own created image/meme, it might show up in google images anyway and, again, I would have no idea. 

 

But whenever possible, absolutely give credit!!!

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Keep the memes coming. I love them! Smiley Very Happy

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

I've seen so many pics from BT pop in the image section of google! Smiley Very Happy

Freaking Ulta!  I JUST said I was going on a no buy for the next ~2 months and what do they do???  

 

They email me a deluxe GWP set featuring my favorite perfume for ONLY a $30 buy-in, free shipping is at $35 AND they have the nerve to add some liquid lipsticks that I have been interested in for quite some time for 50% off.

I can't remember the last time I created an order just because a good GWP came up without other perks (20% off, Bday coupon, 21 Days of Beauty, etc.). Dang near broke my neck trying to get ready and place my order out of fear the GWP would sell out 🙈.  UGH
