      So it sounds like starting next week I am going to have to be taking Architecture studio classes online... Somehow...

      I don't really understand how that's supposed to work

      I was supposed to start working on a wooden 1:25 scale model of a building for a course next week, but 17 cases of COVID were diagnosed in my university a few days ago, and it looks like they might close or limit the use of the workshop for a while. It's a messed up situation for sure.

      We'd like to take some time to say thank you for all the awesome stuff you all share with the community! We know how hard all of you work and how much creativity and time goes into every creation posted on Planet Minecraft.

      Unfortunately, there are some people that would like to use your hard work for their personal or financial gain. While it can be exciting that someone wants your permission to share your content, it's worth taking some time to look into where your content is actually going. Sometimes, they don't even ask for your permission. Not cool.

      The most common dishonest requests ask to use something you made for a different version of Minecraft or to re-upload content to another website or app without fully explaining how your content will used. Sometimes these are harmless, open and honest requests by people wanting to promote your work with credit to a community that speaks another language. Sometimes the person just wants to personally use your creation in another version of Minecraft or highlight it in a Youtube video. What's important is that you know how your work will be used and that proper credits are given. Sometimes the main reason the person wants the content you spent considerable time and effort to create is to make a profit off of it and could care less about crediting and promoting the real content creator, you.

      Here are a few things you can do to protect yourself and your creations:

      Step 1 : Documentation
      Upload your creation to Planet Minecraft as soon as it is ready and before you share it with anyone else. Doing this gives you something super important that proves you were the one who made what you're sharing: a date and time attached to exactly when your creation was first shared. This timestamp and any other documentation helps prove ownership.

      Tip: If you don't want to share your post publicly, you can still protect your content with this step! Create your submission but uncheck "Publish Live". This will draft your post so only you can see it!

      Step 2 : Consider a License
      Register your creation for a Creative Commons License. You might be familiar with this already as you might have seen it on other posts already. It's a simple step that allows you to express exactly when and how your creation should be used by others. You can get started on creating your CC License here: https://creativecommons.org/choose/.

      Note: legally you are the owner of any skin or texture you make regardless the license you may put in place for it. Posting to PMC for timestamp reasons is a great way to protect and prove! Technically, the right to any skin or texture is the same as a painter having the right to their painting. Painters use canvases and so do you! Just in a different medium! There's a great article on The Informed Illustrator regarding digital art & copywright law that's worth reading if you need clarity on this subject.

      Step 3 : Knowledge
      If someone asks you if they can use something you made, do a bit of research! Something as simple as visiting that person's profile here or on their linked social media pages may help you determine if they mean well. Be cautious of new members reaching out to you who have empty profiles, no linked accounts and no posts here. Ask questions when people request to use your work such as where it will be posted, how it will be credited and who will see your work. Make sure you are getting credit for your own work and that it won't be put behind advertising links, sold or behind paid access.

      Step 4 : Common sense
      Listen to your gut! You have every right to say no and you don't have to have a reason why. Saying no doesn't mean you're selfish or mean. If something doesn't feel right and you think someone might be dishonest, don't give them permission.

      Step 5 : Raise Awareness
      Learn more and get involved in protecting your work and others. Share these steps. Helping others understand how to protect themselves can be just as important as protecting yourself. Awareness sites like https://stopmodreposts.org/ have been helping this cause for years!



      We hope that this helps you protect yourself and your work. Your creations are valuable and so are you!

      Happy Crafting,
      Planet Minecraft Team

      Whelp, it has come time after many years that I will be heading off to college. Essentially what that means for here is that my posts will be rather infrequent... even more so than already. I intend to still be somewhat active in the community beyond that though, if I can.

      Also, I will be studying architecture in uni. You guys should let me know if you want to at all hear about that... could fairly easily make posts or blogs about it all.

      Do u know what path you want to take?

      Alot of people dont think about community colleage. But.. You can get a great career thru various community colleges.

      My friend went to community college when he was young to be a heating/ac repairman.
      10yrs later... Runs his own company, as a couple of employees. Earns good income... And... A lot less stress.

      Just a thought. Theres a lot of great carrer opps. Thst come out of c.c and.. You owe a lot less debt afterwards. :D

      Good luck with your studies! I'd be interested in reading those blog posts. Coincidentally, I'm also moving out of my hometown this week to study architecture from September onwards.

      Good luck in college! I hope you'll have an awesome time. 😁 Also I think making posts and blogs about your studies can be super interesting, especially if you can link it to minecraft in some ways. 👍
