I've been approached before and asked why i was taking pics,and of whom..i started to laugh at the user,but held back,and clamly stated that i was taking pics of MYSELF!..lol..this person said to me that folks that usually take pics are pervs,I really wanted to have a conversation about this but decided against it,for obvious reasons,Like some 1 stated earlier some folks are just too full of themslves and i guess cant help it...i just ignore the folks who might have an issue,I also try to take pics of myself and get no 1 else in the photo,if it was of some 1 else i would ask first..simple really..lol..
I don't understand why users get in a twist about photo taking on home. Its not like its your intellectual property or someone is going to recognize you online for breach of parole. I think its just users with big egos thinking I want their photos when I am really a scene photographer in home, and I am usually taking self portraits.
I have posted before saying that I was called a perv for taking pictures now its people coming up to thank me, sarcastcally, when all I'm doing is taking landscapes. Silly users, will I ever understand you? lol
I have had the same thing happen to me. Three female avatars at Yetis dancing on the bench in clothes I hadnt seen before called me a "perv" and threatened to report me for taking pictures. Just another reason I think the word "perv" should be banned and considered a hate crime.
I completely agree with the TC, and it’s exactly what I believe too –ego trip. What also bothers me is the double standard. I don’t call a female who dresses no matter how provocatively a dirty S. It’s offensive. But when I feel adventurous on odd days and whip out my junk guy and dance alone in a corner, ladies approach me and call me a perv? I shrug it off... Now if I were to do the same and approach a girl and call her a name, well, I don’t know, not sure a guy would come back in one piece.
Oh hey, did I time-travel backward or something?
*looking at date of last post*
Oh, what?!?!? People are STILL making an issue of this? Alright, best piece of advise in regards to this situation: Tell the complainer, "Report me then" and go about your business without giving them any more attention.
I like taking pictures on Home too. If theres a new public space that has just come out, I'll be there snapping pics to add to my photo album on flickr. And I too have been approached and acused of snapping people pics without their consent. It's funny sometimes because I'll be snapping a pic and then some person will walk in the shot and then ask me if I just took their picture. I'll say yes because you just walked into the shot. Then they tell me I better erase it before they report me. I just learned to ignore them though and I don't bother reading the text because I know it will just be some cry baby whinning when ever they hear the sound of a camera. I admit occasionally I'll see someone wearing a costume that I think looks cool so I'll snap their pic. But if I hear someone taking a picture near me I don't react to it. Maybe they're taking my pic and maybe they're not. So what?
Unless you directly and verbally harassed another user in a public space, I don't think you can be reported for taking photos on PS Home. I certainly wouldn't mind you taking a photo of me while doing your scene photographs of landscapes in public spaces.
XD Yes, its funny how some ppl will react to the sound of a shutter even in a virtual space. I would love to take your photo on home!
whenever i hear the **bleep**ter noise im curious as to who is taking pictures.
if they are taking pics of me maybe i could have made sexy poses for them.
