Suikichi(sp?)'s site...

Ey all.:) And a quick shout out to all the new members - HI!


Anyway, I got a question, and it probably goes out to the admins in particular.


Suikichi's fan-art shrine has been down for a while, and the page just says "blah blah blah, closed, blah blah Japanese text, etc". The link has also been taken down from the Affiliates panel on the right (---------->>>).


Anyone know why? And is it ever coming back?


I ask because I was a huge fan of his/her artwork. I would check it for updates all the time. I hope it's up and running again. For real...


Cheers,
Biggy

Heya 'Chief

As far as I know, the site was taken down because of art-thieves. In other words, people were stealig her art, using them without permission, claiming they made them etc., etc. I was a fan of hers too, but I do understand why she took her site down. I've been a victim of art thievery too.

I hope her site comes back some day, but I don't know for sure. :(

Yup...

And to make things even worse, it was partially thanks to our site. We made the Hara Kiri shrine more accessible for people exactly because of the affiliate button. I don't feel well because of this...

Of, and one of the thieves is no other but Clar380 from YOT itself. Bash him badly!

I hope Suekichi will be back on other address. If only she will, I won't spread this address anymore.

Tenshimitsu : Of, and one of the thieves is no other but Clar380 from YOT itself. Bash him badly!
Huh? How, what, why? I never came across this. Shameful, shameful... :((
Sigh... I so hate art thieves.

What the Hell, Clar 380?

I don't belive it,

that is just pain in my heart that one of our members did that.

why would Clar380 do something like that?

:cry

Yeh, it's a shame.

I was thinking: all of us can contact Suikichi somehow and ask her to pick-up where she left off. It's not like she's not drawing anymore, but I'd like to see the latest Yoshi artwork (if there are any).

Does anyone have contact, like an email addy?

I could send a Google-translated msj in Japanese to her, on our behalf.


~Chief

That would be a good idea.

if someone had her address, one of us could say that there is many people who want her to put her art work back online and for sercuity only certain people to avoid what happened before should be allowed to view her artwork.

What do you think Biggy, Admin and Tenshi?

See this:

(edit: seems like he deleted his shameless gallery of Suekichi's pictures. Good. But one pic is still there. Hehe, not to mention he uses my avatar which I made long time ago (blue Yoshi). LOL)

Bigchief, I'll send you her email address. But well, she's not replying to me. And we used to have a good contact... Heh.

This is the message I just sent:

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Hello Suekichi. =)

My name's Onur. I'm a long time member of YOT (Yoshimitsu Obsession Team) - where I'm known as BigChief - and also a fan of your drawings and fan-art.

I talked with the webmaster of that website, Tenshimitsu - and the other members - about why you closed down your site. They told me that some of your artwork was stolen and misused, so you closed your website. I was sad to hear about this.

Because of this I suggested to everyone else who enjoys your drawings that we kindly ask you to get your website back online. =)

There are many people who wish to see you continue sharing your talented artistic skills, including myself. I understand you may be worried that the same thing will happen again; maybe this time you can have Members Only access to your website.

I hope you will consider (and accept!) this proposal. Just reply to this email as soon as possible.


Cheers,
Onur


PS: We are all sorry that this happened. Some of the cause may have been because we diverted traffic to your website through the 'Affiliates' link. Of course, next time, we will consider this more carefully. Also, Tenshi feels terrible about what has happened, and asks me to say sorry to you..... "Sorry!"

So please, reply to me when you get the chance.

Sayonara. =)

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Now we play the waiting game.....

Lets hope that we have the answer, :3 excuse me, im gonna go and burn and crush some art thieves, THEN i pull their guts out-- you got the picture.

The email address I was once using is not working. There's no chance to get in contact with Suekichi anymore.

:(

I do miss Suekichi... She was my inspiration to produce the Yoshi fan-arts I have now... And also why I had actually joined this site. (I was very shy, so joining and not talking to you guys would have been pointless.) So, before I joined I used to browse through hers and YOTS pictures daily. (Didn't actually know she had her own site.) But then one day I saw YOT news and the damning ytube video. I knew then we were gonna lose those pictures. (I had that feeling.) So that night I stayed up for ages just looking at them so I could memorise them. (I Wished I could have saved them to hard-disk, but back then I didn't know how to.) Then came the day they were removed. - I was gutted.. It hurt... After that some of YOTS features were privatized because of the thieving. Around a week or so later I joined with hopes that her arts were private too. But nooo... -_-....

If she's watching over this site i have a message: あなたの絵が見れなくてざんねん

Also, when are we getting shoutbox back?? It can be used in the meantime while the site is not being updated. We are a greater community with a shoutbox. It was the heart of YOT!!! Our round table!!! :p Where we would play, joke, bond and discuss a variety of subjects!! (To think with its current inactivity we could be losing potential long-standing members.) :(

Yeah I am glad I was not the only one thinking this. I too am worried about how much the shout box being absent is affecting the activity here. I mean, I think of the amazing friends I have made through this site and the adventures we have had (and WILL have) together, both on and off-line and it makes me so pleased to be a member here. But most of the making friends thing happened on shout.. it was our tea-room our chill-out area. The place where we'd vent after a hard day's work or just generally mumble on and on about how awesome Yoshi is even though everyone here already knows.. :p

So yeah.. I hope we get shout back soon.. so the cool new members here can see what they have missed (and will also have more insentive to keep coming back to us)...

Maybe there's a way can help Tenshi to get a shout box up?? I dont know enough about computers so not sure how possible this is...

Finally.. yeah.. I would love to see suekichi come back. She was before my time so I missed out on all that amazing artwork :(

Sad story about those pics of Suekichi...There´s a vid on utube showing some of them, also some cool Kunimitsu pics ^^

here

Of course I miss the shoutbox too. Even if it seemed quite here, the shoutbox never really was. So please Tenshi do ur best to get it back on! ^^
We´re counting on you :)

Isn't the shoutbox a bit off-topic here? :)

But I hear ya, I'll try to bring it back, in the previous or different form.

EDIT: found a nice software, I'll install it at least tomorrow.
