Just found a website that posted one of my patterns without my permission. It's some kind of DIY community website where users earn points by posting and can spend those points on various downloads. Here's the link to the thread:…

So I made an account and reported the post. I tried to contact the post moderators, but here's the thing: I can't message other users because I don't have "enough points." Alright. I read the website FAQ's, trying to find a way to email the administration. They say to click the "contact us" button at the bottom of the screen. No such link exists. I try to message the admin's actual user page, but that's right, I can't send messages to other users.

After reporting, I left a reply to the thread where the download was posted asking them to take it down. I logged in today to see if anyone had responded and I find that my account has been banned! Has anyone had to deal with this website before? I've seen some people on Etsy share stories and were unable to do anything about it. What really bothers me is that they even used my full name. If anyone knows anything about this website, I would appreciate it.

I've had a deep love for art, drawing, and all things crafts since I was a little girl. I joined DeviantArt in 2008 to share my drawings with others, but in 2009 I picked up a book on amigurumi (crochet stuffed animals). I gave it a try and was immediately "hooked." ;) It has taken years to get to where I am now, but my love for this hobby has not faded yet, and I continue to enjoy making things that make people smile. I do still draw, paint, and occasionally sculpt, but for the past few years my focus has been crochet.

Most of the plush toys I crochet have been designed by me. I create and sell my own patterns as well as take occasional commissions. Due to time and life getting in the way, I don't advertise or take many commissions, but if you're interested, please send me a message I will happily respond.

I'm so glad that I can share my work with others and receive their feedback and critiques. Thanks for visiting!

Hello! I hope you don't mind my posting on your page today! I'd like to invite you to a brand new group; Pop Culture Crochet. I'd love to make this group a hub for all things crochet with a pop culture spin and I think some of your items would find the perfect home there.
 :happybounce:  Please, help me get this group off the ground!
