AIW's memes authorization
« on: September 16, 2016, 06:38:25 AM »
Heya.

I'm currently making up some demotivational posters -lite for AI War, and before posting, I have some questions.

1) Am I allowed to use Arcen's pictures (units, background, etc) to create and "publish" (aka "just send on internet") them? As I add Arcen's and AI War's logos in them, I imply I don't pretend being the author of the used pictures. Is it enough?

2) Where to post? I guess I'll upload them on my site and do a little forum thread somewhere. (Which subforum?) As there is a social media "call for participation" (here), I first intended to gather and flesh out AIW's memes (here and there; I can imagine several in the vein of "brace yourself CPA is coming" and "one does not simply walk into Homeworld"). So is it okay to create some and tweat them or something?

3) Any "yes but..."? Legal mentions? Places not to post in? etc

Thanks in advance.
Please excuse my english: I'm not a native speaker. Don't hesitate to correct me.

No restrictions whatsoever.  Meme away!

I don't even care if you use profanity, but please just don't post them on this forum if you do.  For instance, I love the Picard meme, but it wouldn't be appropriate here.

Opened your save. My computer wept. Switched to the ST planet and ship icons filled my screen, so I zoomed out. Game told me that it _was_ totally zoomed out. You could seriously walk from one end of the inner grav well to the other without getting your feet cold.

 ???

I'm pretty sure those inequalities are facing the wrong way.

(Small warning from experience: Demotivators should never go out on a company's own social media network or known partisans, it's always a bad look. Otherwise, fire away.)
