Why do we still create bases?
Most of the dolls are baseless now, or made with an original base. Most of the bases only seem to be some kind of 'inspiration' to look at, but not to use anymore. And many bases are used to create stolen art/bases.

I'm sick of it. I'm in the mood to stop releasing my bases. Private ones make dolls more unique, and can't be stolen/frankenbased so easily.
Greetings to all art-thieves; I hope you're happy now.

I'll think about what to do now. Maybe I can organize some kind of a (free) member area at my site, so people have to register to get my bases. Or similar.

MY SITE IS DOWN because I made a mistake when updating Joomla (the system behind the site). I'm not sure yet, but it looks like all my content needs to be created again. (I still have the files, but all the sites are deleted probably....and this was the greatest work when creating my site XD)
So...please be patient, it can take some weeks/months to get up everything again. I'll let you know, when it's up again.

This not cool at all your a wonderful base maker and doller and for her to have the nerves to post that base on a doll form and wouldn't think you the original maker not see that she make a base that was not hers to begin with your work and pass it off as her need to know she hurting the ones who do follow your rules and miss out on good base from you. I'm truly sorry this happen to you I hope you don't stop making wonderful base but I hope you make it where if some one want to used your bases that they really are truly going to used it for what they said they going to do with it and if they don't they should not be allow to used it.

The problem is that there's is not variety in the bases. Yeah, sounds fool, but it's true. It's easy to make a simple pose, one hand on the waist and a loose arm. But there's no bases that allow us to make a witch, or a running doll, or a benefic pose for a kind of creation.
That's why people make their own bases or baseless dolls.
It don't means that you must stop, a lot of people uses your bases and likes it. Always will be like this, people who makes your own bases and people that make bases for others use it.
I hope you think better at it :) I love your bases, I already used it a lot, people uses it a lot too. There's a lot of people, the most, that can't make a base for yourself and them they needs yours. It's natural someone learn to make your own bases and, a lot of them learned a bit with already-make bases ^^
Please, keep doing it =)

Awww :( It's so sad to read this kind of journal! Because You're one of the most creative and best basemaker in dolling world. I just LOVE your bases and our community will be very empty without your works, really :hug: But if you want to stop - it's ok, it's your decision.

Why creating bases? Well, when the Eden was alive i thought making bases is some kind of collaboration. It builded a net of people who want to work together to have fun. It was really big happiness to look at people dolling on your base and dolling on other people's bases. (Omg, my english sucks, sorry ==). It was simply fun and enjoing hobby! And now? We are between two different worlds - people, who product crappy bases for people, who don't want to improve in dolling. And second - people, who don't want to participate in this and want to pixel all by themselfs because of fear of tracing and participating in this shi...ekhem.

I don't know. I miss the time when dolling was fun :(

You deleted all your articles???

They are still in the trash, in that case.

It will be very easy to set up a members only area for bases. If you need help, you know where you can find your own personal joomla expert, right?

*looks angelic*

You never did upload bases to Pixistar, did you,...?
