On the importance of supporting the franchises you love

botanycameos:

This is an unpopular opinion because anything that requires spending money is unpopular, but it’s nevertheless very important.

If you love something, please support it.
Don’t let it die.

I often see posts on tumblr from people (often young and as a result having less money available) saying they have no intention whatsoever of buying something, but will still take what they want without paying.

It’s very frequent in particular to see people wanting to watch the STID gag reel but refusing to pay for the product they are consuming.

I too hate spending my hard earned money, but when it’s spent on something I love, I consider it a worthy use of it. It’s how that works.

The compendium has so much bonus material, AND costs a mere $33.
It’s a US release and in the US that price is about as much as going for a lunch for two at a cheap restaurant.
I don’t know about you, but if I had to choose between those two things, I’d much rather eat instant ramen at home with my compendium bluray than go to a restaurant…

Please, consider supporting the franchise and buying what you want to watch, so that they go on to making gag reels and featurettes etc.

Yes, many of us get annoyed at multiple releases for a same movie. Yes, I get it. But that’s a long time industry-wide practice, it’s not fair to single out Star Trek and punish Trek as a whole for something Hollywood always does in all franchises.
It’s how the market currently works, sadly. We can choose to support our favorite franchises or not, but if we don’t, then we must accept that we are harming the thing we love. We can’t claim we love something, and pirate it.

What I want to know is why the compendium is Blu ray only. I don’t have a Blu ray player, just a DVD player. Anyone know of any plans to dual release this set on DVD?

……That tumblr hasn’t blown up or gone batshit since the mirror announced who Benedict Cumberbatch’s girlfriend is.

Not sure I trust “newspapers” such as Mirror and Mail.

Wow, I never thought I would have to do this. Sigh…here goes…the blog cumbermelikecrazy has reposted 5 gifs of mine. 2 of them the next day I told them to to take down the other 3. I’ve been patient with this blog. I have been seeing reposts for a long time on that blog. In my opinion this is a reposting blog and has ignored all of the people that sent them a pm to take the reposts down. Reposting is not ok. I have perfectly lovely gifsets that these gifs go in.here, here and here. Reposting is basically stealing, just reblog. Since they’re ignoring me, I have to do this which I hate. 

Please if you can signal boost the hell out of this post.

Reblogging this and asking anyone who reads this to do the same. I know only too well the time, effort and care that goes into anything creative, and it’s purely for the joy of sharing it with others who will also enjoy it.

Don’t repost, don’t follow repost blogs or reblog their posts, and don’t be one yourself. Let the creator get the credit for all their hard work and the joy of knowing it made you smile, cry, laugh, curl up and die, whatever. Just because the creator’s watermark is on there that isn’t the same as reblogging properly. There is no excuse.

This and the comments drives me nuts. I knew it was her that you were talking about. I had a feeling after you mentioned the crude comments and I groaned loudly in disdain. I am all for “unf he is hot,” but there is no need to be all creepy about it. I hate reposters that refuse to stop. Some people make a mistake, but refusal to care is just rude.

Exactly. Everyone makes an honest mistake now and then, or has something saved to their computer and can’t remember where it came from. Reverse image search on Google doesn’t always help. But to continually do it and then to degrade the work with such crude comments is not funny. Yes we all make, “Oh, he’s hot. I’d like to…” type comments, but the comments on those posts (and others) border on offensive. I’m broad minded and tolerant, but no. Just no.

everything you said benedictervention and @dominantbenny

thank you so much for reblogging!

Signal boosting this so that people know about the reposter and don’t accidentally follow them thinking it’s a real blog.

The blog that’s stealing from you keeps stealing from the whole fandom, it’s really terrible. :(

Making gifs and edits etc. takes time and it’s so sad to see blogs like that one taking advantage of other people’s hard work instead of creating something for the fandom themselves also.

Reblogging.

Just a friendly reminder that even when he’s not modeling, he’s modeling. 

The sexual frustration is so much it literally physically hurts. 

This is one of my favorite pics of him ever. Just beautiful.
