Just your "ordinary" swedish MMD user that likes to make textures and model edits. I collect models, mainly those belonging to the "Vocaloid" category.

I'm also the owner of CituSmoothie (link found below) where I post download links to various HQ MMD models. If you have a tumblr, please make sure to follow me there ;)

Besides MMD, I like to draw (especially manga-inspired-art), read fantasy books and play video games.

I'm getting so tired of this password nonsense

Journal Entry: Sun Dec 7, 2014, 3:35 AM
Most of my watchers here on DA might know by now that I run the blog CitruSmoothie (together with Duekko) where I post the links and passwords to HQ MMD models.

Some of you might also have noticed that, to some models, I haven't given out the password. Instead I have linked to a video/picture or just translated some password hint. The reason for that is because somewhere, either in the readme added with the model or in the nicovideo description there's this sentence: 

"Do not share the download password for this Model"

If I see that sentence being written anywhere, I won't give out the password as I respect the modelers wishes. 


BUT even though I do this I still get complaints from people telling me I shouldn't post certain passwords... Even though the creator of the model have not mentioned anything that this is forbidden or against the rules. Heck, I've even seen japanese people complained about stuff like this, ofc not directly to me, but on twitter or similar. 


I wonder why it is that they don't come to me directly if they're not happy with something I do? I don't care if they can't write in english, I believe I can handle written japanese pretty well by now and I should be able to understand if they don't want me to post their passwords.

But here's the thing... If the creators are so scared that their passwords will be leaked, why not just add that simple senctence to their readme ("Do not share the download password for this Model")? Is that so hard? No, it's not. 

Some might argue that "But the modeller had NO IDEA he even needed to write out a rule about this. He was SHOCKED when he found out that people could be so disrespectful!" 
Please, we live in the year 2014 (soon 2015) and it's the internet. If you don't clearly state something is not ok, people are going to assume it is ok. And besides, I don't think there's one modeller out there today that have never heard of passwords being shared. There are probably tons of stories circulating about it in the japanese MMDC, as it is in the western MMDC.

That's basically all I wanted to say. I respect the modellers rules... if they clearly state them.
